                             Notes from the arena champ.

     There was NO ONE here to fight me other than the Veteran Mercenary?  That's
insulting.

                                     Tora Hamlin

P.S.  To the arena and past warriors here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 1-1-0 outing, HELTER SKELTER has advanced 3 
places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was THAT'S MY BUSH! who went from 
last turn's 6-4-1, to this week's record of 10-5-1.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
FERRETOLOGY, who flew up 12 points in the rankings after mashing SATURN like a melon. 
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was MARS, who 
dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with VIRGINAL 
CONCUBINE.  Our battling duelmaster TORA HAMLIN has managed to hold the title, 
fending off VETERAN MERCENARY's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 
KATI-TEI.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid HELPLESS ANIMALS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does KATI-TEI really have that 
many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  HELPLESS ANIMALS + 
Weapons That go Boom = MEMPHIS MAFIA + Avoid City.  And who is this JEHU you ask, 
with 49 points and a 12-12-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Getting lots of 
flowers from sympathetic fans was INDESTRUCTABLE II, who was successfully challenged 
by RHAYNE who had a mere 18 points more than INDESTRUCTABLE II.  Definition of petty: 
RHAYNE beat INDESTRUCTABLE II, a mismatch of 18 points.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, OSTRICH went after BETHANNE GRACE, who was higher by 23 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, OSTRICH was defeated by BETHANNE GRACE.  SADISTA 
FAIRBORNE of MEMPHIS MAFIA had better have a good reason for challenging down 11 
points in a challenge which she won.  I thought SADISTA FAIRBORNE showed great skill 
and promise when she bested JEHU.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the KATI-TEI 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.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Yellow Brick Toad -- Sounds kinda breakable. -- Bethanne Grace

S&M&MS -- You have no dignity!  This is offensive to me. -- Saturn

I don't count Khalhums Dwarves.  They're full of hostility because of the closing of 
their home arena.  It's an unfair advantage to us laid-back types. -- Mars

Sadista Fairborne -- See if I give YOU a ride ever again! -- Jehu

     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"
is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
