                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Convicted Assassin was pretty much "business as usual."  Disappointing, but
I suppose--I could be talked out of this--better than nothing.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in JHANS. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for VALAKOTH, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing CHESTER 
GRELL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was CHESTER GRELL, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with VALAKOTH.  Our battling duelmaster IRINA JINZ has managed to hold the 
title, fending off RIRORNI ADVENTURER's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, JHANS.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid 
aiming at that location.   
     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 SKATE DRAGONS, please raise you hand. 
Wow.  Does JHANS really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause SERPENTS HOLD beats feet every time SKATE DRAGONS 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Well, the arena is no place for slow 
learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and KUNG-FU MASTER demonstrated that very violently on 
KOLLY LIGGIT's body.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and 
no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the JHANS 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.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

"LEFTOVER RECIPE was butchered by BLACK ORC."  Yes, well, we knew those orcs were
hard to keep filled up.  They eat a LOT.

Ah, tourney results.  Um, well, we salute the participants.  It shows a willing
spirit, or something. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

The Kung-Fu Master was himself.  What else, eh?  I'm just glad nobody gives this
determined idiot a sword.  What he might accomplish with an actual blade boggles my
imagination. -- Kolly Liggit

The Captured Orc might not've been a black orc (he bathes), but I didn't want to
break the budget trying to feed him, so I drove him off.  Let him go find his own
leftovers. -- Chester Grell

Polecat Poncho -- Good gods!  What is that incredible stench?  I think I should
protest this fight on the grounds that you were using some kind of chemical warfare.
Euwh. -- Hildreth Lamont

Venom -- Eh, you snakes.  All alike. -- Goran Koblinz
