                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Draco, your performance was pathetic.  We all know you can do it better, so
pull your act together.  Otherwise, Noachian, not noted for his patience, may have
you fighting by torchlight!

                                      Tirniellis

                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  THE FAMILY now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it. 
It looks like the guys(?) at MEDAL OF HONOR 27 had a good week as they went 4-1-0 to 
put them in 3rd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for HAL 
LASKO, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing SOLDIER 4 like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was SOLDIER 4, 
who dropped 21 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with HAL LASKO.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was TERMAGANT 
VOTARY's ETTORE HSIDAR, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by TIRNIELLIS.  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!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid MEDAL OF HONOR 27, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does VEASTIAN really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me? 
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause ANIMAL MAGNETISM beats feet every time MEDAL OF 
HONOR 27 smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece 
of SJORDHAL, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VEASTIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Bengal -- Golem, tell your creator that the kidneys go on the inside.  Though they do
make for nice targets. -- Ettore Hsidar

Tirniellis -- Aargh!  What do you think you're doing!?  Aargh!  I've worked long and
hard to become DM.  Who are you to take it from me!  This ain't over. -- Draco El
Tannjn

The Kung Fu Master again!?  Ugh! -- Nestor Bane

Sjordhal -- Fight too long.  Me get tired.  Need more sleep <yawn>. -- Dolt Dimwit

Kinjurin -- I am the Chosen One.  My Lord Kjarran has gifted me with the assassin's
blade.  You, no doubt, are honored to be sacrificed to my Lord Kjarran. -- Hal Lasko

Dolt!  Dimwit!  Don't you EVER pay attention? -- Sjordhal

Hal Lasko -- Damn.  You Votaries are just too mean!  I hate it when things like this
happen. -- Ghost of Kinjurin
P.S.  Besides which, I didn't learn a THING....

Jaguar -- That "animal magnetism" can be a double-edge tool, can't it?  The way it
attracted my sword "magnetically" to your body was, from my point of view, cool.
From yours...maybe not. -- Kuressa d'Gen

Lion -- Funny, I thought you'd be bigger.  In fact, I thought you WERE bigger, and my
blows kept whistling through empty space.  Disconcerting.  Defeating, too.  Ouch. --
Toranj

Dolt Dimwit -- Getting up in the morning may be your first mistake.... -- Sjordhal

Hal Lasko -- I know.  It's a trick to sucker you in. -- Toranj
