                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You weren't ready for this position, Lt. Olsen.  You need a promotion first.
But it was a good effort, and you may take the title from me this time around.  Not
that I'll mind!  I'm leaving, which I didn't think would ever happen, except in a
cremation urn.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for GABOGOOL, who flew up 13 points in the 
rankings after mashing FRATSFA SLAVE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was CALEB DOOR, who dropped 10 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with VENOMOUS CONCUBINE.  Going for the gusto 
and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was ALJAFIR's VETERAN MERCENARY, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by BARNUM CHELLS.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed 
protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that KAOS FROGS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of KAOS FROGS' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  KAOS FROGS + 
Weapons That go Boom = 82ND ILLINOIS + Avoid City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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
