                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So!  As Goban would say, I, too, have defeated Valgard, who is one of the
contenders for the title, the last managed warrior to hold it, in fact.  So I, too,
should be accounted Duelmaster of Kati-Tei and should receive the bonus and benefits
attached to that position.

                                      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 LORIMINA, who flew up 17 points in the 
rankings after mashing NOBLE ASSASSIN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  In 
front of all the crowds, RAMBLING OX took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give 
the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff? 
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in KATI-TEI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!--

White Rabbit -- Ah!  You DID remember what the dormouse said.  I wasn't sure you
would, what with being whacked in the face and all.  But you were probably gulping it
down too fast, lots of people choke when they do that.  Good thing the Infirmary crew
was handy to do the hemlock manuever.  Or is it maneuver?  Neither one looks right.
How about...the hemlock strategy to prevent death by choking?  Or is it a tactic.
Really, I never studied, and I'm just winging this stuff. -- Rambling Ox, and I
didn't get my name because of the way I walk

That M. Chardinee!  He's going to claim the title, or at least keep me OUT of the
title, and I defeated him!  What a [several expletives deleted]!  Just because the
Chardinee was so LACKLUSTER in the arena that I didn't get QUITE as many points for
what any FOOL can see was a spectacular win! -- Valgard the Seriously Annoyed
P.S.  And I'm tied in recognition with the Ox.  The shame!

When I saw I was going to fight the so-called "Noble Assassin," I did some research
on him.  Did you know he always wears a mask and never admits to his real identity?
That tells you how "noble" he feels his job is--he's ashamed of it!  I will, I
promise, find out his true name and REVEAL ALL!  Watch these pages for further
information! -- Forandin

Alice -- You only learned ONE skill?  You weren't paying attention!  You haven't been
PRACTICING!  You silly girl! -- Lorimina
P.S.  You're lucky I didn't order your head off, young woman!

Queen of Hearts -- How can you expect anyone to keep a flamingo up to the mark in
this kind of weather?  The poor bird was shivering! -- Terrindar
