                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, Just A Win looks like my last challenge since Jifi showed no evidence that he
can threaten me.  If I can crack the big TP, I'll be sitting here for a while.  No
one else even seems interested in ascending to the Challenger Champs.

I'm interested to see how this goes, JAW.  Expect to see a lot of your blood before
it's over.  I won't give up my throne easily.

How about that 5-0-0 turn to go over 500 wins?  Not bad, eh?

Your exalted Duelmaster,
Dr Hook

                                      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.  It was a tough 
week for KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND, to drop 5 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a 
solid 4-1-0 outing, MASTERS OF SIN has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for BLITZKRIEG, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after 
mashing JIFI like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  DYNAMITE was overcame by NARCISSISTIC and drops 14 
points.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the 
most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Unlike most arenas, DR HOOK 
managed to get his challenge off against the 17-4-0 JUST A WIN.  It's a proud day for 
the MASTERS OF SIN stable, as their warrior, JUST A WIN, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad FACES OF DEATH?  Big bad FACES OF DEATH.  Big bad FACES OF DEATH.  
LYRATILAN's afraid of the big bad FACES OF DEATH.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch MASTERS OF SIN's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from FACES OF DEATH.  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, FUNKADELIC went after MAELSTROM, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, when 
the dust settled, FUNKADELIC was beat by MAELSTROM.   
     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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Dr. Hook -- How about giving dumb old me a shot? -- JAW

Blackheart -- Seems to me if you kill your opponent that you also win.  I have always
liked the fact that you and Bill (and me) kill a lot in an "Andorian" arena and could
care less what everyone thinks.  So let's get bloody! -- Sin

Bella Donna -- Defensive warrior?  Ooohhh.  Thanks. -- Ocean Blue

X. Rolph Tupp -- Thanks for the skills. -- Bloodfeud Man

Bill -- Great to be back.  Are you going active in any other arenas?  I'm just here

for now, but I thought about checking out one of the non-tourney arenas.  I'm going
to do some story telling soon, think you'd be down for some writing of your own? --
Sin

Bill and Blackheart -- Shoot me an email. -- gdeller4@yahoo.com

Club Foot -- Getting down and funky can be very sinful. -- Funkadelic

Dynamite -- See?  I just KNEW you could control that temper. -- Foirene Ilmer
P.S.  Go blow up your gods, eh?  They didn't protect you after all.

Tough -- Well, drat.  Why'd Foirene have to go stirring you up with her comments?  I
bet you'd've been more relaxed if she hadn't. -- Feder Jornis

Bloodfeud Man -- The bigger they are, the more blood I can suck out of them.  This
works for me. -- X. Rolph Tupp

Anne -- No, I don't see it.  You're MUCH too small to be a true Amazon. -- Trellin
Xiss
P.S.  Though you do have the temper for it.  Ouch!

Bored Stiff -- Nothing like a good nap, hmm? -- Elindor Imarda
P.S.  You and me both.

Our congratulations to Champagne of Grapes of Wrath, a tourney victor in the Rookies.
Will we be seeing you here? -- Jorja and the Middle Way
