                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Hail and well met, my loyal subjects of Kati-Tei!!!

     This column will be short and sweet (like my last fight)... as I feel that I'm
truly only holding the throne until my doggy brother Devil Dog decides to claim what
is rightfully his.  However, I suspect that will not happen until after the upcoming
     I'm unsure who I'll fight next turn if The Plague is inactive, as Ubba (is that
pronounced Oooooooobah or Uh-buh?) received both of my challenges.  Hopefully I'll be
able to grace your presence again by defending the throne for yet another column
which isn't written during the weeeee hours of the morn!

Until next turn....
     Same doggy time,
          Same doggy place,
               Same doggy channel,
Your Duelmaster,
     Hand of Dog

                                      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!.  Say good-bye to DA DOG POWNDAZ, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE STORM FRONT stable.  Coming up with 
a solid 2-1-0 outing, THE STORM FRONT has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for FINGER, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing 
LOOSEFOOT LARUE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LOOSEFOOT LARUE lost to FINGER and drops 12 
points.  Our battling duelmaster THE HAND OF DOG has managed to hold the title, 
fending off DUST DEVIL's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, THE STORM 
FRONT.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE PLAGUE, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does KATI-TEI really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch DA DOG POWNDAZ's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from THE PLAGUE.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of STRAY CAT, who 
was this week's most challenged warrior.  TRIPLE DAWG DARE of DA DOG POWNDAZ had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge which he won.  
I thought TRIPLE DAWG DARE showed great skill and promise when he won victory over 
STRAY CAT.  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!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

     The crowd was surprisingly orderly, but it was still a crowd, and the Commission 
clerk, Algernon, looked at it uneasily.  Whenever this many people came together to 
petition for something, it meant trouble.  For him, anyway.  Records to be altered.  
Altering records was Bad.  It made Extra Work.
     His assistant clerk leaned close and whispered, "If it weren't for gladiators, we 
wouldn't have jobs.  Smile at them and ask what they want."
     Algernon closed his eyes briefly.  Looking at this crowd made him dizzy.  They 
were all wearing black and white stripes.  Like a herd of zebras, except that zebras 
didn't carry swords.  Then he took a deep breath and managed a smile.  "What... ah, 
what can I do for you?"
     "We want new names," the first gladiator said.  There was a number on the front 
of his shirt:  0381.  He thumped the number with his thumb.  "This here isn't a 
     "We want REAL names!"  That voice came from farther back in the crowd.
     "Yeah!  We've paid our dues," another shouted, "and we've EARNED real names!"
     One from the very back yelled, "I want to be called Tom."
     All the others turned to look at him.
     Algernon couldn't see him, but apparently those looks were accusing.  Well, he 
could understand that, "Tom" was such a... common name.
     "My mom called me Tom," the voice in the back protested.  "It's a good name."
     "It isn't the name you put on the petition," 0381 said.  "We talked about this.  
We got our manager's agreement.  You get the name on the petition."
     Algernon didn't really want to keep staring at all these stripes while they 
argued.  He picked up the petition.  "These names are the ones you want?"
     0381 turned back.  "Yes."
     "It's a lot of trouble, and when other people see that YOU are getting name 
changes, THEY are going to want them--"  Seeing the gladiators beginning to frown... 
and finger their weapons, he went on quickly, "So I figure we might as well make it a 
complete deal.  A Name-Change-O-Rama.  Everyone who wants a name change can petition 
for it.  Get it all over with at once."  He glanced at the petition, shuddered 
slightly, and passed it to his clerk.  "We'll announce it, proclaim it, even, and you 
will get the names on this petition.  And others will get the names THEY think they 
should have had, too."  He paused.  "And I think I'll get a new name, I'm tired of 
being an Algernon...."
