                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is the tale of 2 nearly identical brothers who braved the sands of
Alastari.  Hank and Dean Venture came from the same rollup sheet and became something
of an experiment.  They both just graduated to ADM, so the experiment is basically
over.  Let me start by showing thier stats, both are Bashers:

                             Hank: 17-3-9-19-15-10-11

                             Dean: 12-8-9-19-15-10-11

     Yes, 19 Wit!  I could not get 21 on either, and there were points left over.
Originally they were a bit more different, but then I saw the opportunity to make
them almost the same, and to try something new.   
     Hank got Great damage and +4 Attack, starting Expert,  He graduated at 16-2-3.
Favorite WH, Hi/Mod, learn Att, Bash
     Dean got Good damage and Good Endurance, +4 Parry, He graduated at 18-2-1.
Favorite: MS, VH/VL, learn Par, Bash
     Both entered as many tournaments as they could, with each one having one 7-3-1
outing.  Both had exactly 77 learned skills on graduation day, Hank had a 2.26 learn
rate, Dean a 2.37.  I will probably run Hank a bit longer, and send Dean to
retirement.  Tourneys aside, I would have to say this 19 WT experiment was a
resounding success!

                                      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.  PANSY DIVISION 
is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 3rd place to 3rd place.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for MANNY LEHMAN, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing QUIZBOY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was QUIZBOY, who dropped 21 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with MANNY LEHMAN.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and 
say 'Challenge me'!  DEAN made a Dark Arena Challenge against CHARLIE STONETROLL this 
week.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as CHARLIE STONETROLL killed the Duelmaster, 
DEAN, leaving VENTURE BROS. in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might 
add, MANNY LEHMAN from PANSY DIVISION to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I 
hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     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 VENTURE BROS.?   Big bad VENTURE BROS..  
Big bad VENTURE BROS..  TRICORUS' afraid of the big bad VENTURE BROS..  Tra la la la 
la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause PANSY 
DIVISION beats feet every time VENTURE BROS. smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well 
dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, QUIZBOY would be president.  Although it 
may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  THE PINK TRIANGLE of PANSY DIVISION had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge which it won.  
I thought THE PINK TRIANGLE showed great skill and promise when it beat SALMGEDAN.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Big deal, so THE TOOL got mashed in the Dark Arena.  With 
his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka waka).  Knowing when 
to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to 
Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  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
