                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Axe Em, I was more inclined to sling an axe about you, which I don't think is
what you had in mind.  I thank you for the win, the title, the two skills, and I wave
a fond (sort of) farewell as you leave for the Isle.  I'm sure you'll find plenty of
people to "axe" about you.

                                      Chauncy

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  PUNNY 
AMINALS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for ANIS, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing PRESSURE like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out 
on the sands.  PENNY LOPEZ was defeated by BEAUFORT and drops 10 points.  Well, 
everybody's pal CHAUNCY moved his record to 21-13-1 by defeating ELESAURIS in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 2 recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that PUNNY AMINALS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of PUNNY AMINALS' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause MAXIMUM RESULTS beats feet every time PUNNY AMINALS smiles at them. 
Try farming, eh?  And who is this KILDILLI DALL you ask, with 32 points and a 6-3-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
BOILINGBROKE went after ON GOLDEN POND, who was higher by 18 points.  Well, when the 
dust settled, BOILINGBROKE was overcame by ON GOLDEN POND.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Yesterday I talked to the NOBLE 
ON FIRE's manager and CHAUNCY, slayer of KINDA FINE.  The manager:  'I think I can, I 
think I can'.  CHAUNCY:  'I already did'.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try 
and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

A salute to Chauncy, Duelmaster of Willaf, and a very Punny Aminal. -- Midas and The
Golden Gladiators

Amythest -- You gave it the Maximum, but I got the Results. -- Golden Dome

Penny -- You robbed my vaults! -- Gold Bullion

Douglas -- A rose is a rose is a rose.  I had fun.  Let's do the beach together? --
On Golden Pond

Hey, we have a Face! -- Midas 

Golden Dome -- I fired my weapon maker.  We will meet again. -- Amythest

Golden Dome and On Golden Pond -- If you need any armor repairs, please send us the
bill.  We hope we didn't scratch it too much. -- Beaufort & Douglas

Spike -- Did I hurt you at all or did it just tickle a little bit?  Good bout. --
Bolingbroke

Gold Bullion -- Tsk, that makes you so heavy!  Lighten up!  Try some simple gold leaf
instead! -- Penny Lopez

Stewart -- You are INSANE.  You're asking to get dead, doing challenges like that. --
Kildilli Dall
P.S.  That's why I buried you in the sand, to give you time to cool down and think
things over.

Beaufort -- Ouch!  Good fight...for you.  (sigh)  Jorja told me there'd be days like
that.... -- Penny Lope

Sacraficed -- Have you considered studying at the College of Mimes?  They have a
"dueling choreography" course that might help you. -- Dunroe Minh

24 Carat -- Well...since you suggest it, why not?  I'll bring my rubber duckie. --
Dunroe Minh

Sacraficed -- She should, we're twins. -- Penny Lope
