                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Dwarf in Lin Tirian got to write a column when HE beat the Duel2Dude--we
hear about these things, you know.  We KNOW how it's going for the other standbys.
He's an ass over there in Lin Tirian, well, not as much of an ass as a human or, gods
forbid, an elf, but still.  Not a true KHALHUMS Dwarf.
     I, however, am the real thing.  Khalhums all the way, and damned proud of it.
     And if I had my rights, I would be the official Duel2Dude, but at least I was
able to sit on Sonora Sara long enough to have my say here.
     Khalhums forever!

                                     Kegrald Steelhand
                                       Khalhums Dwarf

And if you've never been sat on by a Khalhums Dwarf, take my advice and AVOID it in
the future.  He didn't take his armor off, for one thing, and even if he had...who'd
have thought such a little guy would be so heavy? -- Sonora Sara, official
Duel2Dudette

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in IAYE.  
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for DARK STAR, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing LEE like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out 
on the sands.  LEE was bested by DARK STAR and drops 12 points.  Our battling 
duelmaster SONORA SARA has managed to hold the title, fending off KUNG-FU MASTER's 
none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, IAYE.  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.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Wow, what a great turn: 3-2 against standbys.  No managed warriors. -- Leeta, Red Dog
Gang, the terror of the standbys of Iaye

I think Sara may have stirred up M. Chardinee a little too much last time.  He LEAPT
out at me the minute the Arenamaster said "Go," or maybe a few seconds BEFORE,
smacked my hand, ran into me and knocked me down, and then jumped on top of me and
started to crow like a rooster.  What is WITH this guy? -- Dark Chocolate

I wouldn't trust that scribe, not an inch I wouldn't. -- Willeta

The Shiftyeyed Volunteer was UP to something, or at least, he was ABOUT to be up to
something.  So I smacked him good. -- Freeda, smacker of volunteers

And then *I* smacked him, too!  Gods, that was fun.  He had no fight left in him.
Just a target dummy. -- Gissanniah

So, Sonora Sara thought she could take REVENGE on me for losing to me last time.  Ha!
Kegrald got to deal with her today, but I had MY way with one of her teammates.
Melted that Dark Chocolate, and then added MILK and ALMONDS.  I turned her into a
milk chocolate nutty bar!  Don't mess with me, people! -- M. Teleskoi Chardinee

Why does nobody BELIEVE me when I say that I was framed?  Oh, sure, they change my
fighting name from Embezzling to Trustworthy, but do they let me OUT of here?  Not
much they don't! -- Alvin Moss, Trustworthy and HONEST Scribe unjustly condemned to
the arena

(eyes shifting nervously)  Listen!  I didn't do anything!  I wasn't going to do
anything!  Honest.  I'm just an ordinary guy, and I want OUT of here! -- Sheffel Tye,
involuntary Volunteer
