                             Notes from the arena champ.

All Hail Rocanis!  Greatest arena in all the land.  Great fights last turn, yes, yes.
Welp, ahh, yea, best of luck on the sands this turn, less it's vs mine of course.

                                      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 AIRSLICER DAN, who flew up 23 points in 
the rankings after mashing RIRORNI SPY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was RIA ROSEDANCER, who dropped 10 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with FREM HARID.  Our battling duelmaster 
MOSSIE ROCKTROLL has managed to hold the title, fending off CHARLIE EKSA's none too 
subtle advances.  Better luck next time, MIDDLE WAY 20.  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 ROCANIS arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Mossie Rocktroll -- Well, that's the pits.  I knew I wasn't up for a fight with you,
but would the steward listen?  No much!  Although the skills are appreciated.  Maybe
I'll get to use them on you someday. -- Charlie Eksa

Purple Kitten -- Hmm.  I don't think that's a good color on you.  Maybe... red.  I
could assist you in bleeding all over that purple, if you'd like to give red a try.
-- Dililah Frann

Airslicer Dan -- Can't you slice it thinner than that?  When I try to toast it, the
middle stays cold. -- Abelinda Chase

Ria Rosedancer -- Ouch ouch ouch!  Too many thorns! -- Ebria Gannet

Fonzeth Hilgra -- Is that any way to treat someone who's practically your brother?
After standing behind each other in the line at the Commission office, I thought we
were buddies, you know?  And now this!  Some people just have no consideration. --
Frem Harid

Mossie Rocktroll -- I don't think we have anyone who can defeat you.  Way it goes. --
Jorja, the Middle Way

We salute all who participated in the tourney. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

All -- Hello?  Hello?  Hello!  Ah hell, I be feeling all alone.  Thanks for sticking
with me Jorja. -- Banthius

Jorja -- Ahh we had some fights last turn I think ahh 5, and well at least everyone
lived, and we get a record 1 team vw 1 team with a sweep for one of us? -- Banthius,
trying hard to be creative and no doing well

     Practice.

Warriors of Middle Way -- Ahh yes, well we thought we had some witty things to say,
we was wrong. -- Warriors of Inconsistent Fury
