                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, well, well, it seems that you have finally been dethroned after many
months of ruling.  I sure hope you were trying, Zoum, otherwise what fun is it to be
the top dog?  Either way I think I'll stay here for a while, perhaps a ticket to the
Isle is in my future.  Hmmm... I think some redecorating is in order here, anyway I
gotta go and prep for our rematch, Zoum, good luck! 

                           Jasmin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
FRATSFA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, DARQUE AGES has advanced 3 places in the 
rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was DRAGONS GUARD II who went from last turn's 
63-73-9, to this week's record of 67-73-10.  SAVAGE SNOWBALL got through to the 
Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt she was more than anxious to kick JASMIN's tail out 
of the throne!  It's a proud day for the FLOWER GIRLS stable, as their warrior, 
SAVAGE SNOWBALL, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  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 FRATSFA arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid JADE WARRIORS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does FRATSFA really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
FLOWER GIRLS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from JADE WARRIORS.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of LI KUI, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, VELVET 
ROSE went after WORMER, who was higher by 18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
VELVET ROSE won victory over WORMER.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  AREOPOLITE defied all odds and slew SARKOZY 
in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as SARKOZY's meat is 
notoriously tough.  SHAMU defied all odds and slew SARKOZY in the Dark Arena.  The 
only ones displeased were the buzzards, as SARKOZY's meat is notoriously tough.  
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 FRATSFA 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 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Well!  We found one of our missing teammates, hanging out in the back room at the
