                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ahhhhhh!!!  That's the sound of me basking in the glory!

     I finally got my invite and I'm MORE than ready to bolt for ADM.  Apparently I'm
most skilled using my ninja death fists, which is good for me since I'm really not
strong enough to use weapons...
     My manager tells me that this is a good thing, and I'm not arguing.
     What else?  I am really looking forward to heading to the Isle and I've been
told to start practicing for the tournament.  I haven't gotten to fight in a
tournament since initiates, so I'm looking forward to getting back in the action.  I
also look forward to joining the Dark One's squad in the Free Blades arena.  Even
though I'm being told I'll be his 7th best Aimed Blow in the arena, I've managed to
exceed expectations before.
     On a sad note, this my be my team's last in Malcorn.  Apparently all four of our
replacements this week were sub par, and if we don't get a sterling recruit next turn
between one for me and one for a DA guy, we will be shutting down operations here.
     One more fight, guys.

I remain, Lucky Devil
     Duelmaster
          Soon to be Lord Marshall!!!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
MALCORN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for BADGER, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing 
ERIC like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was PEACH FUZZ, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with SARA.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was 
GREENWARDENS' WREN, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by LUCK DEVIL.  4 out 
of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the MALCORN arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid MARKS PARTY, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does MALCORN really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  MARKS PARTY + Weapons That go Boom = THE DEVIL'S OWN + Avoid City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the MALCORN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  
Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Badger -- Nope I have no hidden tourney fights.  I'm DeathStalker's replacement.
Funny I challenge you and lose, we get matched up and I win..  Go figure LOL. -- Axel

Duskblood Pudding -- That hurt! -- Eric

Little Biter -- Nice try.  No biting for you! -- Sara

Wren -- I will get you next time!  But thanks for the skills! -- Ogre

Lucky Devil -- Congrats on heading to the Isle. -- Daikkan

More Dark Arena fights than regular fights last turn.  I hope you all found some good
recruits! -- One Armed Bandit, mgr of Shewish Buffet

Our congratulations to that Lucky Devil, Duelmaster and now Lord Protector.  Some
people have all the luck! -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Ogre -- Stay away from my nest! -- Wren
P.S.  I'm not... I don't think I'm a bird, really, but sometimes, well, I *feel* like
a bird.  Probably something to do with the magic of names.  A depressing thought.

Sara -- At least I got in a bite or two! -- Little Biter

Axel -- You're a darned squeaky wheel!  If *I* started squeaking, do you think I
could learn like that? -- Badger

Lone Wolf -- Be careful what tree you hang out under.  Some of them have hunters
hiding in the branches. -- Treeshadow

Fried Ogre -- I won't be ordering THAT any time soon.  It made me sooo sick! --
Snowfoot
