                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Khalhums Dwarf?  To be sure, it's an honor to fight a GENUINE Khalhums Dwarf,
as rare as they're getting these days, but for the title?  I would have hoped for a
genuine opponent, if I'd expected this at all.

                                      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 STING, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing PLUCKED 
SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  ROOST KEEPER lost to GILLY MANDERSON and drops 9 points.  
It's a proud day for the SERPENTS HOLD stable, as their warrior, BALISONG, ascended 
the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day 
keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SOLVEN arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in SOLVEN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown

like corn. -- Korine Orles
