                             Notes from the arena champ.

     If my manager's orders reached RSI in time, I will be going inactive this turn
in preparation for the October mail-in.
     Congrats to whomever inherits the throne and good luck to everyone in the
upcoming tourney!

Hull Scrubber

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  
SUMMERTEETH now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for R.E.M., who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KARINIRINA was bested by KUNG-FU MASTER and 
drops 17 points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer 
clothes.  HULL SCRUBBER did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  It's a 
proud day for the TOOL SHED stable, as their warrior, MULCHER, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps 
T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad TOOL  SHED?  Big bad TOOL SHED.  
Big bad TOOL SHED.  NIATOLI ISLAND's afraid of the big bad TOOL SHED.  Tra la la la 
la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  TOOL SHED + Weapons That go Boom 
= BAD BREAD + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, TAVELSHAN 
KETHAL would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 NIATOLI ISLAND 
have no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be 
the world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta 
la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Myrddin of Clan Pendragon -- Where are you?  I look at a newsletter, and you aren't
there, and then you are, and then you're gone again?  This is confusing.  I am
(slowly) assembling a packet of stuff for you, but I can't tell if you're sticking
with the game or not! -- Jorja
P.S.  You can send in a personal even if you aren't active.

Fishwife -- Well, you certainly flattened me with a flounder. -- Tavelshan Kethal

Elt -- Eh?  Jorja talks about being confused, *I* am confused.  For some reason you
make me think of baby eels?  Euwh. -- Hassimor Shomur

Flour Child -- Dust explosions.  Just what I did NOT need today. -- Kielandor
Venansinde

Look, I don't do Kung-Fu, okay?  In fact, I think the Kung-Fu Master is perverse! --
Kurelleu Zien

Kurelleu can make what excuses he wants, but I don't approve of the Veteran
Mercenary, either--I mean, a mercenary?  Kill for hire?  That's almost as bad as
being a gladiator and doing it for entertainment!  But I don't go and LOSE to him
because of it. -- Karinirina
