                             Notes from the arena champ.

What a waste of a TV.  There isn't even anyone up here to challenge.  My upbringing
wasn't all that good as you can judge by my name.  JE thinks he is so clever.  Get
Toe.  Ghetto.  Get It? -= Toe

Yes? -- It

No I was just...never mind.  Anyway this was a stressful week, I get the throne
because my surrogate team mate is killed in the tourney.  Then I have to go to all of
these parades, and make all of these appearances.  I could really use an ale.  Could
somebody just get me a beer? -- Toe

Did you call me? -- Meabeer

Ugh.  No.  Damn JE.  You are an idiot.  Well Rocanis, 'til next time. -- Toe

                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to GET, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the ELEVENTH HOUR 
stable.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-1 outing, ELEVENTH HOUR has advanced 3 places in 
the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for OCELOT, who flew up 21 points in the 
rankings after mashing PRESTON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  PRESTON was defeated by OCELOT 
and drops 15 points.  Well, everybody's pal TOE moved his record to 14-1-1 by 
defeating RIRORNI SPY in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 6 recognition 
points.  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 ROCANIS arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad ELEVENTH HOUR?   Big bad ELEVENTH HOUR.  
Big bad ELEVENTH HOUR.  ROCANIS' afraid of the big bad ELEVENTH HOUR.  Tra la la la 
la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause EVILUTION 
beats feet every time ELEVENTH HOUR smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, MICHELLE would be president.  Although it may be 
a contest she doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Proving again that ROCANIS is not rated G, VANESSA of the 
ELEVENTH HOUR slew the warrior GRAY COLT in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a 
bloodfeud.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  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

Ultraist -- Uh, thanks, I think.  Zipper wasn't even that good.  It was my own fault
for sending him to the Champions tourney at 28 Fe with only one master anyway.  He
seemed to have the "knack" though so I sent him.  He would have only needed the two
wins, which would have likely been against NPCs too.  Although those aren't safe
these days as Carnage (Namenlos) just had a really good warrior get killed by
Khalhums Dwarf in Lyratilan. -- JE
P.S.  I assume you are only here for tourney prep, but welcome nonetheless.

Jonna Thane -- I am really just a fill in anyway.  So don't expect me to do any
rescuing.  Is that even a word, and if so, is it spelled right?  Whatever, never
mind. -- Temb

Eats Grass -- Thanks for telling everyone my secret for winning fights.  Oh and by
the way I am sorry but my manager made me down challenge you this turn.  He said
something about it being a good match book or something and you teach a lot. -- It

Yul -- Careful now, I might try again.  I always wanted to see a one armed gladiator.
-- Bent

Nikala -- That was a nice try.  Did you see my awesome record?  You shouldn't have
tried that. -- Dale

Dale -- Need I remind you that your team mate, Zipper, was undefeated in the arena?
You should apologize. -- JE

Nikala -- Sorry.  (under his breath)  Damn Zipper!  I will never come out of his
shadow.  I hope JE never finds out that I rigged that fight to get rid of him. --
Dale

Aldaldon -- I guess I was supposed to find out if you were any good cause I am
"dispensable".  I found out the hard way. -- Godget

Cirith Ungol -- I'm guessing Lady Luck was on my side.  I have a feeling we will meet
again in the future and the outcome will be a little different. -- Meabeer

Eats Grass -- You should try bread. It is much more tasty. -- Toe

Rironi Saboteur -- You should keep your sabotage plans to yourself.  When they tell
me I have to fight a stand in I am angry enough, much less someone who is less than
noble in their endeavors. -- It

Jonna Thane -- I should have ducked instead of trying to bend.  Maybe next time. --
Bent

Yul -- You have so many more fights than me, how did I beat you? -- Temb

Vanessa -- Yep, it was a match.  (sigh)  I guess you're a tree-hugger type? --
Treekiller

Bent -- Oh, let's not. -- Jonna Thane

Gray Colt -- With a record like that, you could be one of us. -- Thorn
P.S.  Doesn't that make you feel all warm and fuzzy?

Well, the Mage's Apprentice is a worthless type.  What's the use of having a broom
carrying buckets of water all over the arena?  It just makes a mess. -- Forluitha

Preston -- Hits to the jaw, throat, and head...what was your attack location, lad?
Don't you know that if you attack the head you're more likely to kill someone? --
Yul, speaking for team Redhorse

     Team Redhorse -- Remember to send your ads to ads at reality dot com too! --
     Ed., on the road and might have missed 'em!

Temb -- You're fast! -- Yul

Toe -- That's some nice twisting around parries.  I need to learn to counter that.
Oh, and congratulations on the title.  I look forward to reading your column. -- Eats
Grass

Burst Appendix -- Your arena name is gross.  Why not ask your manager for a new one?
-- Red Filly

Thorn -- Ow. -- Gray Colt
