                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha!  M. Chardinee can't lay a hand or a blade on me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
RODEKI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for COMB, who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing 
TANTRUM YOGA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was TANTRUM YOGA, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing (to say 
the least) bout with COMB.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was COLOR ME SUAVE's HARD KNOCKS, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by ROCKHOG JR.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so 
try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the RODEKI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
