                             Notes from the arena champ.

    I must admit that I did enjoy my fight for the throne, not that I won, but by the
amount of skills I learned on that fight.  If I had lost, I would have been happy,
but I didn't, so thats why I am here.  Hopalong, I thought you had me in the first
few attacks, I think I was lucky just to survive, let alone to win that bloodbath.  I
hope I get matched against one of Hammer's morons for my next match, that will assure
me an easy victory.  Until we meet again, stay out of Noblish.
          The Claw

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to RAVAGING LORDS, as they are pushed from the coveted 
top team spot by the STORM BRINGERS stable.  It looks like the guys(?) at STORM 
BRINGERS had a good week as they went 4-1-0 to put them in 1st place.  I guess 
steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for DARK JOURNEY, who flew up 20 points in 
the rankings after mashing FALWORTH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  GUT SHOT was beat by 
TEMPEST and drops 12 points.  Our battling duelmaster THE CLAW has managed to hold 
the title, fending off DUCK CREEK HAMMER's none too subtle advances.  Better luck 
next time, KLKASINO HAMMERZ.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid DEFENDERS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does NIATOLI ISLAND really have that many liars?  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  DEFENDERS + Weapons That go Boom = SACKETT'S & CO. + Avoid City. 
And who is this BEAR CREEK HAMMER you ask, with 44 points and a 10-14-0 record.  Ooh, 
the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Congrats to ACE HEARTS HAMMER 
for revenging the death of hers teammate (but more importantly, feeding SADDLE SORE a 
bit of dirt).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter 
problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the NIATOLI ISLAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
