                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You're a silly bugger, Jeremiah, but then, you're Karnhorn, so of course you're
silly.  It gave me a lot of pleasure to defeat you.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VEASTIAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for MELANJI, who flew up 9 points in the rankings after mashing 
ALVERNON STRONGAXE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was GUIDO JENJILI, who dropped 13 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.  It's a proud day for the IS THAT A 
CLUE? stable, as their warrior, A BAD LIE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the VEASTIAN arena.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

It's surprising when you look at the active list in this arena, but we had a well-
attended tourney.  Good cess!  We salute everyone who went.  And we're glad to see
Kith, tv in the Rookies, fighting here, even though it seems likely he will embarrass
the whole Family. -- Jorja and the Family

Alvernon Strongaxe -- Bah. -- Kirvinj

A Bad Lie -- They all are. -- Guido Jenjili

And a couple of worthless standbys.  That works. -- Melanji and Kharijanh
