                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And there you have it, Sting.  A "handy" defeat.  Of course, as a human, I
*have* hands, which is not a thing common amongst serpents.  That's bound to help.
     And I'm called away.  Graduation details on request.

                                      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 HOLM JOUBERT, who 
flew up 12 points in the rankings after mashing THE HONEST MERCHANT like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was EMBEZZLING 
HEN, who dropped 1 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with LYNNIS 
NALL.  In front of all the crowds, STING took the Duelmaster's crown for its own.  I 
give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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 
Spymaster
