                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I thank Ahringol that he has left me among the living for another cycle and I
hope he accepts my offerings to him.
     After this week's fights, I plan on going inactive until the cycle before the
Fall Grand Tourney.  You never can tell with these commission scribes, so it's best
to get your 30th FE on the turn before your intended Champions run, lest you end up
in ADM months before the tournament.
     Best of luck to those who intend to take the throne.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  It looks like 
the guys(?) at GREENWARDENS had a good week as they went 4-1-0 to put them in 3rd 
place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for DIERKIN, who flew up 16 
points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was BADGER, who dropped 4 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with STOLEYOURSPOT.  In front of 
all the crowds, SABBATH took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the MALCORN arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad TERMINUS?  Big bad TERMINUS.  Big bad 
TERMINUS.  MALCORN's afraid of the big bad TERMINUS.  Tra la la la la!  For those of 
you who like math, try this one:  TERMINUS + Weapons That go Boom = CRUCIAL TAUNT + 
Avoid City.  And who is this WREN you ask, with 85 points and a 13-24-1 record.  Ooh, 
the tales I could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  I have no doubt that MALCORN will be celebrating long and 
loud their warrior KUNG-FU MASTER's slaying of AXEL on the sands.  Knowing when to 
use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to 
Duelmaster.   
     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?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

Havoc -- No, I'm *giving* lessons to Quasil. -- Treeshadow

Raith -- (sigh)  Yeah, I guess.  But come winter, I'll need 'em again, so I'll just
put them in a safe, logical place instead of losing them. -- Snowfoot

Varick -- No.  They're like cuckoos, always moving into someone else's nest and
pushing the kids out. -- Wren

StoleYourSpot -- But then Quasil came along and took it away from you, so there! --
Wren

Varick -- You're much more fun to look at than some stupid concubine. -- Wren

Raith -- You're supposed to step into the shadow, sit down, and relax.  Remember that
next time.  None of this hacking and hewing. -- Treeshadow

Havoc -- Gods, you're pushy!  I was going to take off the snowshoes, but you
clobbered me before I'd even gotten *one* off. -- Snowfoot

Sabbath -- What?  I thought this WAS my day of rest. -- Badger

Killer -- You big guys are so... wimpy, I guess.  So scared of little me that you
have to be proactive, as they call it.  Bah. -- Little Biter

Taedium -- Didn't you hear?  I conceded that my attack wasn't enough to beat a scum.
-- StoleYourSpot

We're glad somebody got personals in on time last turn.  So much for Jorja's "I know
someone in a key position," huh? -- the Greenwardens

StoleYourSpot -- And you like parking in trees, do you?  How about under the eaves of
a house? -- Wren

Varick -- Hard to fly with steel. -- Wren

Raith -- Shadow isn't bad.  It keeps you from getting sunburned. -- Treeshadow

Raith -- We'll hope it doesn't happen, then. -- Snowfoot

Havoc -- See?  A turn-around. -- Treeshadow and Snowfoot

Our congratulations to Varick. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Havoc -- You're getting mean!  Forceful.  Ouch. -- Little Biter

Sabbath -- I thought I was supposed to have a day of rest.  Ouch. -- Wren

Killer -- Glad you didn't live up to your name. -- Badger

Sara -- Well, damn.  I'm sorry I didn't realize you were totally dependent on solar
batteries.  And, to be honest, amazed by my victory, however horrid and embarrassing
it was. -- Treeshadow

Oh, thieves, bah. -- Snowfoot
