                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It was a tough fight, but instead of grackel for two weeks, you get delicious.
Good idea, eh?
     I was sorry to see the demise of so many old Emotional Pants friends this past
turn.  That night fight is not fun.  Here's hoping to see some fresh pants real soon.
     The tornament was fun, Gold Charm says, but she surely did not succeed there.
She beat a piker, and lost to a striker, an aimer, and a ripper.  Thank goodness her
one win was against the nonexistant Global Warming.  I guess she is good with ghosts?
     I hope to live through my next fight.  I think Lady Greywand will give me the
call.  Here's hoping. (fingers crossed)

                                      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 FLETCHER, who flew up 18 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 SAD SLACKS, who dropped 3 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with STOGA STEEL.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back 
and say 'Challenge me'!  GOLDEN DELICIOUS made a challenge against SARDO GRACKEL this 
week.  Well, everybody's pal GOLDEN DELICIOUS moved hers record to 17-3-0 by 
defeating SARDO GRACKEL in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 4 recognition 
points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. 
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that FAR TRAVELERS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of FAR TRAVELERS' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  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 
FAR TRAVELERS.  And who is this SARDO GRACKEL you ask, with 94 points and a 18-17-1 
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!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in WILLAF have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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

Sardo -- Here's a salute to you, old friend.  Good fight, and I was deliciously
lucky.  Shall we try one more time? -- Golden Delicious

Billy Jack -- I panned.  You jacked.  Kudos to the winner. -- Pan for gold.

John Dere -- Not only was I the most glamorous, but I was the most winliest.  I like
that. -- Gold Locket

Angus Mac -- Some days you get the bridge; some days the bridge gets you.  Now don't
go jumping off. -- Golden Gate Bridge

     That would be littering.

Greetings all.  A big "howdy" to all warriors of the golden arena, Willaf. -- Midas

Punny Animals -- Balomir regrets his departure, as his manager viewed him as a failed
experiment.  I am sure more experiments are forthcoming... -- Maximum Results

Golden Delicious -- Huh, I still prefer Winesap.  Or Jonathan. -- Sardo Grackel

Pan for Gold -- It's all pie in the sky, if you ask me.  I think I'll use my pan
for... pie.  Apple pie, maybe? -- Billy Jack

Gold Locket -- Drat. -- John Dere

Longing Leggings -- If you had an education, you would probably do better.  Or got a
lot of good sunlight, which also helps. -- Horus Mann
