                             Notes from the arena champ.

These are nervous times we live in.  Only three more fights to go before my invite to
the Isle, and immortality, sweet immortality.  I'd just like to let Chucker know I
appriciate the good nature he has taken all these fights with.  I was expecting the
stand-in last turn, and must admit, it is mind easing when we match up.  Three more
turns to go, and then the throne can go back up for grabs.  Until then, I am your
freak duelmaster.

-- Jackson

                                      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 GARBIN MOORIS, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing 
POLITE BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was CHAWLIE ISTTA, who dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with ANTHON.  Well, everybody's pal JACKSON moved hers record to 15-2-0 
by defeating CHUCKER ISTTA in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 4 recognition 
points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at 
that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SOLVEN arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid PROJECT MAYHEM, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does SOLVEN really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  PROJECT MAYHEM + Weapons That go Boom = KELLUMBO'S KIDS + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Dolby -- Hmm, that seemed much closer to me than our other fights.  Along the line of
what Kellumbo and Jorja discussed last turn, would you be interested in a fight where
we both use only shields for a weapon?  I bet it would make for an interesting read.
Let me know if you are, and pick a turn.  I'll challenge you that turn with only
shields, and you can use an "if challenged" of only shields, and we'll see what
happens.  Let me know. -- Jerome

What is the world coming to?  Stand-byes are winning, and Dark Arena monsters are
losing.... -- Kellumbo

Jorja -- Very sorry about Falisha.  Dondric was using the same low kill desire we
always use.  With basically only the two of us in the arena, I certainly am not
trying to kill any of your warriors.  Hopefully her replacement will be a strong
warrior for you. -- Kellumbo

Voodoo Skull -- You need to convince your teammates to participate.  The kids could
use some new playmates. -- Detective Kellumbo

Jackson -- Oh, babe!  I keep coming on to you and you keep smacking me down?  I know
some women like to be on top sometimes, but ALL the time?  Is this any way to have a
meaningful relationship?  I'm all confused.  Let's talk about this, babe. -- Chucker
Istta
P.S.  Tell me this isn't about my little brother.

Jerome -- The arenamaster was disgusted with the turn that duel took at the end.  He
wanted ME to win.  You could tell.  He thought you were being too much of a hardass
about it. -- Dolby Jossel
P.S.  Arenamasters don't like it when people are undefeated in their arenas, you
know.  The other arenamasters sneer at them at office parties and say they're running
a pussycat arena, and they do NOT mean it's got werecats in it.  A loss or two would
make him a lot happier with you.  I'd be glad to help you out there, just ask any
time.

I don't understand this emphasis on teaching us all Kung-Fu.  I know that gladiators
who make it into the upper levels on the Isle are better off if they have some Kung-
Fu background, but I have NO intention of fighting in Primus, so why ME?  I just have
no aptitude for that kind of thing. -- Io Oldend

I don't get this Ambitious Guard.  Why was he trying to make me take a bath?  I had
one three days ago, and I haven't been rolling in the mud or anything.  Besides, it's
too COLD to bathe every day.  I'll get sick! -- Chawlie Istta

Dondric -- That just TOTALLY makes my day.  Never do that to me again. -- Ghost of
Falisha Lormin

DK -- (smug look)  It helps to know who has buried bodies where. -- a Trustworthy
(anonymous) Scribe
