                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A good try, Kyngrath, and I can see that you're going to be tough to beat a
second time.  Well, if you get the title, you'll deserve it.

                                    Korine Orles

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROMO, who flew up 
21 points in the rankings after mashing TRUSTWORTHY 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 was overcame by HOLM JOUBERT and drops 6 points.  Going for the gusto 
and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was SERPENTS HOLD's STING, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by KORINE ORLES.  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.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     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.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
