                             Notes from the arena champ.

     On top again!  This is an amazing ride.  Thanks Voronsal Maur!  The entire
Jinda-Ban clan teaches very well, too.  We have to remember them on our Christmas
card list!  Even the Zombie child who doesn't sleep got multiple skills this time
out.
     The big news is that Assur is probably going to give me a chance to fight in a
tourney!  He says expect to suck it up, but because I'm on track to be immortal,
he'll let me fight.  Doesn't hurt that I've been learning skills like mad, too.
     But he also said to not let it go to my head.  I still need to win my fights
here and he's making my train extra hard.  That isn't very fun, but I guess it will
pay off one day.

I'm in a quiet mood today so I'll cut this short.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for DEFIANCE, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing MENDARLIN 
VORO like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was DIRTY DIAPERS, who dropped 7 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with KORGENDAL FARS.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 
'Challenge me'!  TALKS NONSTOP made a challenge against VORONSAL MAUR this week.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was JINDA-BAN's 
VORONSAL MAUR, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by TALKS NONSTOP.  4 out 
of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the CLIFFHOME arena.  Did you 
hear that SHEWISH CANDY was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of SHEWISH CANDY's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  SHEWISH CANDY + Weapons That go Boom = BASH BROS CHILDREN + 
Avoid City.  And who is this KORGENDAL FARS you ask, with 100 points and a 22-26-0 
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!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in CLIFFHOME have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
