                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Debby Tonte says that Boromir is selfish, or something along those lines.  She's
right.  After all, HE wasn't going to get any more use out of the title, so why hang
onto it like a dog in some dumb manger?

                                      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 LT. OLSEN, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing SENLUM 
NOSH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was TERRA FLOYDA, who dropped 6 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with BIG PAPA FROG.  CAPT KIRCHNER got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No 
doubt he was more than anxious to kick BARNUM CHELLS' tail out of the throne!  In 
front of all the crowds, CAPT KIRCHNER took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I 
give the bum two weeks.  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 ALJAFIR arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad ALL THINGS FLOYD?   Big bad ALL THINGS 
FLOYD.  Big bad ALL THINGS FLOYD.  ALJAFIR's afraid of the big bad ALL THINGS FLOYD.  
Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
82ND ILLINOIS beats feet every time ALL THINGS FLOYD smiles at them.  Try farming, 
eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Since when is a loss of six points worth commenting on?  Are we all sticks in the
mud? -- Senlum Nosh, sure he's lost more than that at other times in the past

Capt Kirchner -- Just because I happen to be from Iowa, that's no reason to devastate
me! -- Senlum Nosh
P.S.  If you'd taught me some good skills, I might have crossed the river and taken
up a new life.

Ah, Fratsfa Slaves.  Always a fun time in the arena.  They're so beautifully inept.
-- Caleb Door
P.S.  And this one was actually Fratsfan, which makes it all the more fun.  Those
tall, handsome blond guys, I just live to do 'em dirty.  They're so stuck up.

Lt Mueller -- I was just playing to my strength, which is losing.  I'm really good at
it. -- Morris Ormran

Lt Sporre -- And I'm Morris's understudy at losing. -- Fenster Golly
