                             Notes from the arena champ.

Now where did Fred go with that beautiful record of his???  Oh well, don't worry about 
it, because I'm back again!  This time, my challenge goes to Anywayyousliceit, but I'm 
not sure how to slice it with a shield.

                                             Duelmaster of Xochitlan

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Coming up with a solid 4-0-0 outing, UNHOLY 
AVENGERS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
SUPERSLICE, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing DAISY like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was LOUD TOYS, 
who dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with PARRY-SLICE. 
Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  PEKING DUCK 
made a challenge against WICKED SLICE this week.  Our battling duelmaster PEKING DUCK 
has managed to hold the title, fending off WICKED SLICE's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, ANYWAYUSLICEIT.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the XOCHITHLAN arena.  Did 
you hear that ANYWAYUSLICEIT was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of ANYWAYUSLICEIT's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you 
who like math, try this one:  ANYWAYUSLICEIT + Weapons That go Boom = DUCKS UNLIMITED 
+ Avoid City.  And who is this DANGEROUS TOYS you ask, with 32 points and a 4-2-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  CEASELESS CRY defied all odds and slew CAPTIVE GIANT in 
the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as CAPTIVE GIANT's meat 
is notoriously tough.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Watchin' all the Dark Arena fights!

In the daytime we can catch the action,
as the Duelmaster defends his crown!
All the criticals and bloody drama,
and if you're nasty you can challenge down!

Later on, by tavern fire,

to face unafraid, the challenges made,
Duelin' in that Alastari land!

Wishing all good D2 managers a Happy Holidays!
