                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I sit here again, your Duelmistress.  Was there any doubt?  I mean, it was
practically unfair.  Really!  Not that I didn't enjoy the thrashing I laid upon that
upstart, but Inigo had no chance, and it showed.  Well, true to my word I'm leaving
him alone this turn.  As I gaze upon those eligible to receive my challenge I remain
unimpressed.  I mean, two of them are 'sunken swindlers' and therefore deserve no
shot.  One is my teammate, and I think he has designs on one of those miscreants
anyway.  The other no doubt wants to avoid this prestigious seat at all costs.  So, I
didn't challenge anyone.  That's right, I'm fair game.  Come take your shot!  Prove
your worth!  Of course, I plan on keeping the throne so it may not be a pleasant
experience for whomever I fight.  Let's hope not!

Until next cycle,

   Digitalis
   Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NIATOLI ISLAND?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch BIG LAKE 
BANDITS' heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, 
big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SSSINK! win a fight and 
gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SSSINK! beat DEN'S FAVORITE and DEN'S FAVORITE 
lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
NIATOLI ISLAND may be getting bland, as DIGITALIS stays top dog in the city.  The 
Don't Drop Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From NIATOLI ISLAND's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  KNIGHTS OF LEGEND was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was OBSIDIAN HALL.  Ha ha ha ha!  
PRINCE VALIANT was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now look at this.  SPRYTE challenged down 18 
against BIG LAKE BANDITS' TORG THUNDERCLAP.  What a weasel!  Ha ha aha ha aha ha!!!  
SPRYTE was was defeated by by BIG LAKE BANDITS' warrior!  Thank the gods for big 
favors!  ha!  I guess I can give a little credit to PERCIVAL of KNIGHTS OF LEGEND for 
challenging up by 23 to FUTURE AGE.  PERCIVAL lost to get 9 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in NIATOLI ISLAND to get a drink than The Don't 
Drop Inn!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this 
place-- Snide Clemens
