                             Notes from the arena champ.

     No, no, no, Alonzo!  You elf types just don't seem to know ANYTHING.  That match
was supposed to be in three-four time, and if you'd stuck to that instead of trying
to shift it into two-four, you'd have done much better.  Honestly, I thought you
elves had rhythm!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
CLIFFHOME.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for COSMO, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing 
DAISY BICKLE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  REDD CORVAIT was subdued by CAPTURED ORC and drops 1 
points.  Our battling duelmaster CONNIE PAKKIT has managed to hold the title, fending 
off VETERAN MERCENARY's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, CLIFFHOME.  
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.  Did you hear that JINDA-BAN was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of JINDA-BAN's warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  JINDA-BAN + 
Weapons That go Boom = BOY O'S + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece 
of DAISY BICKLE, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Big deal, so LEONARDO got mashed in the 
Dark Arena.  With his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka 
waka).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with 
you and see what happens.   
     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.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Matteo -- Oh, right, just whack my fenders with a MAUL, why don't you? -- Bent Fender

The Convicted Thief is pathetic. -- Daisy Bickle
P.S.  I thought you were supposed to never forget how to ride a bicycle.

The Mordant Deserter is totally uncool. -- Redd Corvait

According to the Unwritten Rules, we SHOULD have gotten to do personals today:
enough standbys fought to make a full team, i.e., five.  But do we get to do
personals?  No!  We can't get anybody to transcribe them!  Since I, the Dangerous
Criminal, fought twice, there were only FOUR of us standbys out there, and so we do
NOT meet the minumum.  Talk about a weaselly position!  SOMEBODY, naming no names, is
going to be very sorry in an alley tonight. -- Korrital sun Soard of Illis, Dangerous
"Criminal"
