                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow, I finally got my first kill!  Why should Hank have all the fun?  After all,
we are brothers, so while you all were worried about him killing off your fighters,
you should have been worrying about me.  As you will see when I graduate, we are very
much alike.  But really, I am sad to see Before Sunrise go... our team Venture has
had many fun fights with her, and that's one less veteran for the younger guys to
beat up on and leech skills from. -- Dean

                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for MANNY LEHMAN, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing 
QUIZBOY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  QUIZBOY was defeated by MANNY LEHMAN and drops 20 points.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was DARK HORSEMEN's 
GALDOR O'HARE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by DEAN.  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 TRICORUS arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad DARK HORSEMEN?   Big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  
Big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  TRICORUS' afraid of the big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  Tra la la la 
la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  DARK HORSEMEN + Weapons That go 
Boom = CODE OF STEEL + Avoid City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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.  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
