                             Notes from the arena champ.

     How did this happen?  We've been a healthy, active arena lately, and then...I'm
fighting the Venomous Concubine for the title?  Not that she isn't a fine lady, the
Rirorni women can be very passionate, but...this is for the title!
     Knowledge and Golden Dome, I expect at least one of you to be active and contend
for this position, now that the tourney's over.

                                      O Puncha

                                      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.  Coming up with 
a solid 3-2-0 outing, POWER LEGION has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SABRE, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing 
PENNY LOPE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was GIGANTOS, who dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with MALCORN INSURGENT.  The most challenged warrior this week was O 
PUNCHA.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  It's a proud 
day for the POWER LEGION stable, as their warrior, KNOWLEDGE, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps 
T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the WILLAF arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid SHROUD IN MYSTERY, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does WILLAF really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch GOLDEN GLADIATORS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from SHROUD IN MYSTERY.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     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.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Shucks, Fury!  Golden Fleece was a 8-6-17-17-9-10-17 ambi striker with +3 or 4
riposte.  We will miss him!  Jason and all The Argonauts are angry! -- Midas

O. Puncha -- Was that Concubine a difficult match for the title?  (chuckle)  Congrats
on the title. -- Midas

The arena report says that Sadigh Fury BARELY slew Golden Fleece.  Does that mean
that Fleece is barely dead?  Perhaps, then, Fleece is barely alive?  Phbffft to you,
Sadigh Fury, because we know that barely dead is the same as completely dead or even
overly dead!  You cad! -- Midas

Ace Of Cups -- Well, now, that wasn't too bad.  A reasonably long fight.  I didn't
get whacked by your lust.  And it added another win for the Dome.  Not bad at all. --
Golden Dome

Pene Lope -- It is all in the name, gal.  All in the name. -- Golden Girl

Come on, now, Knowledge.  A 14th win will not hurt you one bit.  (chuckle)  Then
you're outtahere! -- Midas

Yamabushi!  Oh, Yamabushi.  Now where did that collection of loud-mouthed, ludicrous,
louts go?  Life is not the same without them to haunt me.  Return, return, wherever
you are; we all need the easy wins. -- Midas

Greeting Willaf -- The Wolf King here, manager of Dragonstorm.  Take it easy on my
guys.  I fear they are a fragile group.

Well...I just felt sorry for the Captured Orc, you know?  He's got a hard life.  And,
okay, I was too confident.  I knocked him down and hit him a couple of times, then
stepped back and waved at the crowd.  Mistake.  Because he got up and hit ME.  Darn
it. -- Chauncy the Mortified

Golden Girl -- Huh, you're related to Debby Tonte, aren't you?  I could tell--it's
the tan.  You're a lot meaner than she seems to be, though.  Not that I'd say I
*know* her, but just from seeing her come through to do spy reports I'd say she
doesn't worry enough to be mean.  I don't know what you worry about, but it sure
shows on you. -- Penny Lope

Lady Opulent -- Hmm, could it be that the mystery in which you're shrouded, as per
your team name, is in fact that there is no mystery and it's all right there in the
shop window?  A bow window, I note, and VERY well filled. -- Mona Korin

Gigantos -- Is your team name a typo?  I can't help but wonder, as I lie here digging
myself out of the sand.  (I'm going to have sand in my ears, you know.  I hate that.)
It isn't like there's anything ELSE to do here at the moment. -- Penny Lopez
