                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Looks like I got this spot just in time, before some partying gambler came and
messed it up with pudding again.  Didn't it just finish getting cleaned from the last
mess?
     Well, I know my mission for this turn.  AVOID SHEWISH BUFFET AT ALL COST!!!  Get
those valuable PPs and be set to graduate at 20 arena fights.
     That is what Assur would like to see from me.  Reality may give a much different
story.

                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SIR TOO DUMB, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  TONES OF HOME was beat by BADGER and drops 15 
points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  
STOLEYOURSPOT made a challenge against NO RAIN this week.  Well, everybody's pal 
STOLEYOURSPOT moved his record to 13-5-0 by defeating NO RAIN in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 10 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 
gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the MALCORN arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid BLIND MELON, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does MALCORN really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
TERMINUS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
BLIND MELON.  And who is this NO RAIN you ask, with 85 points and a 10-8-1 record.  
Ooh, the tales I could tell!  RAITH of TERMINUS had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought RAITH showed great 
skill and promise when he won victory over SNOWFOOT.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

say it tears up the understory growth. -- Wren

cutting is the bane of a good forest, you know. -- Ghost of Treeshadow
