                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Am I on a roll, or what?  It's all whipped cream, no substance, but again I win!
Today I defeated the Ignoble Assassin, making my opinion of him very clear, but the
arenamaster stepped in before I could conclude matters.  Oh, well.

                                    Rambling Ox

P.S.  In case you were concerned about it, my race has gone back to what it used to
be.  That doesn't mean the attack has stopped, but it's shifted ground, probably to
something really sneaky and underhanded.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KATI-TEI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
RADIO CLASH seems to have it's eye on the top team spot, and if they continue having 
3-0-0 weeks they may get it!  Hey everybody, watch out for GUNS OF BRIXTON, who flew 
up 16 points in the rankings after mashing TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was KATI-TEI's VETERAN MERCENARY, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by RAMBLING OX.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     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?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya 
bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

M. Chardinee.  What a thrill.  Like I *needed* to have the entire Chardinee Society
of Alastari looking at me cross-eyed.  Cheese. -- Forandin

Why the HECK did I have to lose to the Khalhums Dwarf?  I can take that guy.  Sure,
he beat me last time we fought, but that was then.  I'm better now.  I can TAKE him,
I tell you!  Let me at him! -- Valgard

The Ignoble Assassin, as Ox calls him?  Piffle.  He doesn't know how to handle a cat,
you see. -- Lorimina
P.S.  I scratched his face and bit his ankles and generally made him wish he'd never
come to work today.

Break Stuff -- Wow, a REAL fight for me!  I'm so thrilled and honored!  This is
incredibly good. -- Terrindar
P.S.  Too bad I lost....

Rambling Ox -- We will discuss this tonight.  The alley behind the morgue, moonset.
Be there. -- (name concealed by request), Noble Assassin

Forandin -- I have fought better opponents, but you aren't bad.  At least, this time
you weren't bad. -- M. Nilsiroeth Chardinee

Valgard -- You're a fool.  You're worthless and weak, and you don't belong here. --
Goban Steelsinger, Khalhums Dwarf

Lorimina -- A minute spent with you, my sweet, is worth an hour in other company.  I
shall see you again. -- (name concealed by request), Noble Assassin

Raise the Abyss -- (giggling)  That tickles. -- Timo Ley, Happy Peasant

Trinity Reborn -- Tchah!  You call that creative accounting?  I can show you a MUCH
better way to do it. -- Zobart Stonecutter, Trustworthy Scribe

Eyes that Burn -- Wait until you see the epitaph I've carved on your tombstone. --
Zobart Stonecutter, Trustworthy Scribe

Quod Vos Eritus -- That's a name?  I mean, I know it's impolite to stare, but I
thought the Arenamaster was describing some disease. -- Josem Green, Polite Beggar
P.S.  Or suggesting a wine for lunch.
