                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm not sure there's any REASON for us to write personals this week, or for me
to do the column (except, of course, that Jorja INSISTS), because we all five of us
fought standbys.  And as there was only ONE other active warrior here, he must have
fought a standby, too.  Depressing.

                                     Bella Deane

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for PARTICLE MAN, who flew up 17 points in 
the rankings after mashing EBOLA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was ELDA MAINZ, who dropped 21 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with CONVICTED ASSASSIN.  It's a proud day for 
the NEUROMANCERS stable, as their warrior, TRIANGLE MAN, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Gosh, the Veteran Mercenary woke up disoriented, and then he had to fight again after
that!  This is just terrible, really unfair. -- Elda Mainz
P.S.  Okay, so "sweet compassion" or whatever isn't quite my line, but it just seemed
like the thing to say.

The Veteran Mercenary's a wuss.  He was easy. -- Selvun

What is it with Khalhums Dwarves and Significantly Taller Women?  OTHER dwarves don't
make that kind of comment to me. -- Daceana Linz

Either that Criminal isn't really Dangerous, or he was having a bad day, I'm not sure
which.  But I like it so. -- Chuck Elvis

Bella Deane -- Now, little lady, I wouldn't want it to be too hard for you.  I'll
write you a personal, and my teammate-standbys will write personals, too, so that you
all can write back more easily. -- Sinjanos Thropian, Veteran Mercenary

Elda Mainz -- Well, ah, I had not expected to fight a second lady today, but a man
with my training can rise to any emergency. -- Sinjanos Thropian, Veteran Mercenary

Selvun -- YOU, I do not forgive.  You laughed, and this when I was fighting for the
third time in the same day.  You are a disgusting little pipsqueak. -- Sinjanos
Thropian, Veteran Mercenary

Daceana Linz -- Beautiful lady, you are MINE.  I will pick you up at the Infirmary as
soon as they're ready to release you. -- Stilbo Steeleye, Khalhums Dwarf

Chuck Elvis -- Had you not been wearing the Blue Suede Shoes of Invulnerability, I
would have won the fight. -- Salimbas the Red, Dangerous Criminal
P.S.  Where did you get them?  People have been saying for years that they were
either a myth, or were carried away by the Rirorni after the War.

Holding Up the Line -- Why do such a thing?  Let it fall. -- Dar Hasanj, Master of
Golems, Artificer of the Thieves' Guild
