                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I gave it a little thought, Cargo, and I decided it wasn't that different from
raiding a caravan, which I DO know how to handle.  So I handled it, and you.

                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  SEA DOGS now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for PRESS GANG GUY, who 
flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing THE USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  BAROCHDAL was beat by GOB and drops 9 points.  Going for the gusto and coming 
up with aught but bloody knuckles was SEA DOGS' CARGO, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by GARANH.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try 
and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TRICORUS 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.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

A Convicted Assassin.  I hear we have to import these guys, because, while we have
plenty of killers around here, nobody'd call 'em actual assassins, much less convict
them of it. -- Vargoi

     Ah, too dangerous, eh?

Barnacle -- I think you have the wrong style for your name, but I surely didn't mind
that win, so I'm not complaining. -- Hasarch

Drunken Sailor -- Not on the night before the fight, boy.  That's asking for trouble!
-- Barochdal

Press Gang Guy -- Dang, I hate it when that happens. -- Ghost of Karranvai
