                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I take this moment to say to The Janitor, "How little do you think I care?"
It's all organic, after all.  Quite natural.  And I thought it was a rather good
fight, myself.

                                       Ermine

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
STORMCROWE.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Hey everybody, watch out for CHICKA BOOM, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after 
mashing PERSISTENT BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  BENEZIA was defeated by THE JANITOR 
and drops 13 points.  Drawing on all of his experience as a 20-21-0 warrior, THE 
STATISTICIAN went for the Duelmastership against ERMINE this week.  It's a proud day 
for the AVID FANS stable, as their warrior, THE STATISTICIAN, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad DARQUE FORCES?  Big bad DARQUE FORCES.  Big bad DARQUE FORCES.  STORMCROWE's 
afraid of the big bad DARQUE FORCES.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause AVID FANS beats feet every time DARQUE FORCES 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
BENEZIA, 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!  Yesterday I talked to the DARQUE FORCES' manager and CAER 
SALAD, slayer of RIKKU.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I can'.  CAER SALAD:  
'I already did'.  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 STORMCROWE have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  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
