                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, it looks like my reign has come to a close, but as per tradition, another Maul
Rat will be sitting on the throne once I leave.  In any case, I want to thank you all
for enabling me to run a profitable maraca business with your collective teeth.  If
you are curious about what the DM throne room in The Stomping Grounds looks like, we
have postcards for sale.

                                      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.  
MAULERS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Advancing in the 
rankings was NUMBSKULLS who went from last turn's 32-41-1, to this week's record of 
36-42-1.  Hey everybody, watch out for WALKING MAUL, who flew up 12 points in the 
rankings after mashing MAD MAULER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was MAULLY RINGMAIL, who dropped 7 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with ROCK CRUSHER.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was THE STOMPING GROUNDS' ROWDY DWARF, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by MAULARIA.  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.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad MAUL RATS?  Big bad MAUL RATS.  Big bad MAUL RATS.  THE STOMPING GROUNDS' 
afraid of the big bad MAUL RATS.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause MAULERS beats feet every time MAUL RATS smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of WALKING MAUL, 
who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     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.   
     Well, there's the manager of the THE STOMPING GROUNDS giving me the 'cut' sign 
(or is that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's 
make some tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...--
