                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Wild-Eyed Fanatic is handicapped by his passion.  To win at this game, you
have to be cool.

                                      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 EMNAR GORIN, who flew up 9 points in the 
rankings after mashing ZAKARIYA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ZAKARIYA was defeated by EMNAR 
GORIN and drops 8 points.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
GURTARGAN MONK, and SAMILDAR has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With SAMILDAR 
clearing the throne, TRADERS OF TROCAR of VARDIN ABEQ takes a proud seat as TROCAR's 
new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor 
away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, EMNAR GORIN would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want 
to win.   
     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 TROCAR 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.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Lugman -- Ah.  It looks like you might be a victim of stereotyping, not that *I*
mind.  A win is always good. -- Emnar Gorin

Malaria Larry -- Does this mean you're cousin to a mosquito?  Horrible thought!  I
hope never to see mosquitoes of your 
size. -- Vardin Abeq

Ebola Bob -- They tell me the key to defeating you is to wash one's hands frequently.
Hard on the hands, talk about dry skin!  Still, it that's what it takes. -- Allerdae
Chan

The Black Death -- Flea powder! -- Korasim
P.S.  A bigger stick isn't always the answer.

Ebola Bob -- Of course.  It's experience that makes the difference.  With luck, some
of us will graduate soon and cease to clog the top of the rankings. -- Samildar

Syphilis Sally -- What's up with the name.  I guess, if our paths ever cross again, I
can drag things out. -- Mateen

Malaria Larry -- What are you going to do when the mosquitos decide to strike back?
-- Mosquito

Silky -- Thanx for the welcome.  I'm already feeling at home. -- Sultan, mgr
Saifullah

     Would it be okay if I mark you down on the Lists as "Sultan II"?  Otherwise it's
     going to be confusing, what with the first Sultan being so well known. -- the
     Scribe, now keeping lists
