                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That one was a little too close for comfort, Evebringer.  I didn't know what to
think when you parried that first critical.  Your style is not supposed to do that.
Left me standing there with that "deer staring into headlights" look on my face.
Thank goodness my desp strategy had time to kick in.
     My time here is drawing to an end.  Next turn will be my last until this fall.
Nineteen arena fights should place me at the 29FE mark.  Don't have any disillusions
of grandeur, being a lowly piker and all, but if I can go into the Champions tourney
as an immortal... then why not give it a go?
     Until then, we are accepting applications in an attempt to keep this team up and
going after I'm gone.

                                          -- Well Don

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
WILLAF.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  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 JUDGEMENT, 
who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing GOLDEN FLASH like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
EVEBRINGER was subdued by GOLDEN GLOBE and drops 15 points.  Well, everybody's pal 
WELL DON moved his record to 16-2-0 by defeating GOLD DUBLOON in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 16 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 WILLAF arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND, 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 DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
EVEBRINGER would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  
     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.   
     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.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
