                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I've had enough of those Bad Lies, you know?  I just suddenly couldn't let her
get away with it.  Of course, she's Karnhorn and probably doesn't know any better,
but so what?

                                      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 KITH, who flew up 27 points in the rankings after mashing 
GUIDO JENJILI like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was KHARIJANH, who dropped 17 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with CAPTURED ORC.  In front of all the crowds, JEREMIAH BROADBLADE took 
the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the VEASTIAN arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  This round goes to DARK BLADES, 
their 3-0-1 warrior, KITH slew the 8-5-1 GUIDO JENJILI.  Stay tuned next week to see 
what happens.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  
Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

We congratulate Jeremiah Broadblade. -- Jorja and the Family

Alvernon Strongaxe -- You know what was wrong with that fight was, it's ME the
Commission has listed as a golem.  Which I am not.  But if you're a "warrior of
steel," wouldn't that make YOU a golem? -- Kirvinj

Jeremiah Broadblade -- Fair enough. -- Baibar

A Fratsfa Slave eats sand!  Works for me. -- Kharijanh

And a Dangerous Criminal kicks sand in my face like I'm some ninety-pound weakling.
Actually, I weigh ninety-two pounds, but still. -- Guido Jenjili
