                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't like Gurtargan Monks, and I don't know anyone who does, not even other
Gurtargan Monks.  So I wish I'd killed that one, but he weaseled out and surrendered
early.

                                      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 MATEEN, who flew up 28 points in the 
rankings after mashing SAMILDAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was SAMILDAR, who dropped 8 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with MATEEN.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was TROCAR's SHAGORNAN WILD MAN, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by KORASIM.  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 TROCAR arena.  Well just 
about everybody wants a piece of ALLERDAE CHAN, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  We might as well mark the passing of 
KHALIL, who was relatively new to the arena at 3-2-1.  Probably killed before his 
first shave.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very 
important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TROCAR giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

What's the Lake Patrol doing coming after ME?  I haven't been out on the lake.  As
if! -- Allerdae Chan

Dawud -- Nice try, but no seegar, for which you should thank me.  Seegars are bad for
your health. -- Vardin Abeq

Mateen -- That's asking for trouble. -- Samildar
P.S.  Try some armor next time.  Cheese.

Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!
