                             Notes from the arena champ.

     To have defeated Prince Connor is a surprise, though a pleasant one.  To be
graduating... that's a shock, and very welcome.

                                      Senjiro

P.S.  13  6  12  13  15  12  13  WH, high/low, decise tactics.  I achieved this
position going very high/high, no tactics, with a scimitar.  The Commission doesn't
know everything.

P.P.S.  Although they do realize that I'm amazingly charismatic.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to THE FAMILY, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the WARRIORS OF 
STEEL stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for ELDARRAN, who flew up 19 points in the 
rankings after mashing LIRVENZ like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LIRVENZ was defeated by ELDARRAN 
and drops 15 points.  It's a proud day for the THE BRETHREN stable, as their warrior, 
XARGOTH, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  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!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
