                             Notes from the arena champ.

    I stold my own thunder down in the persads.  This is a wonderful opportunity,
being Duelmaster, and life is just plain sweet.  I will be leaving you all now that I
am a Lord Protector.  Wish me luck.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for SPECTRA, who flew up 16 points in the 
rankings after mashing WILLIAM WALLACE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was WILLIAM WALLACE, who dropped 14 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with SPECTRA.  Well, everybody's pal QUALITY 
moved its record to 21-6-0 by defeating ZURISDAY in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 4 recognition points.  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 SNOWBOUND arena.  Did you 
hear that PUBLIC ENEMY was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of PUBLIC ENEMY's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause MESOPOTAMIA beats feet every time PUBLIC ENEMY 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of NEFARA, 
who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the SNOWBOUND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
