                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All Hail Rocanis, greatest arena in all the land!  It is an exciting time here
'cause I've been reconized by the commission, thank you, Debra Farin, for putting in
the good word for me.  See ya all at the Isle, I hope to enjoy the trip.  *grin*  I
do so hate travelling in a box.

                                      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 RIA ROSEDANCER, who flew up 18 points in 
the rankings after mashing ABELINDA CHASE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DEBRA FARIN lost to 
ROCANI TURNCOAT and drops 15 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back 
and say 'Challenge me'!  BALZEC made a Dark Arena Challenge against LADRO KHAN this 
week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was DARK 
ARENA's LADRO KHAN, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by BALZEC.  An apple 
a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ROCANIS arena.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  BALZEC defied all odds and slew LADRO KHAN 
in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as LADRO KHAN's meat 
is notoriously tough.  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 ROCANIS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

Ebria -- And off ya go!  Do remember to enjoy the sights on the way.  It was almost a
trip in a box for you.  <smile>  Glad that didn't happen.  Hugs. -- Ria Rosedancer
P.S.  We, Inconsistant Fury, so did enjoy dancing with you.

Abelinda Chase -- Okay, sorry, glad ya lived, drinks on me at the Troll tonight. --
Balzec

Anchor Thrower -- Yeouch!  Guess that's a nice evener since I hit you like a hundred
times last match that I won. -- Ryvas Volkmauri the Humbled

Lobster Pot -- Is not open.  Who's hungry for this new fangled food called ~Sea~? --
Nickoli Drybone

Persistant Beggar -- Ain't things easier now. -- Modreth McGleen

Forlis Hauler --Ahh, an excellent win for you, a great way to start a promising
career. -- Modreth McGleen

Anchor Thrower -- Great fight, certainly not how I'd normally expect warriors at this
level to compete. -- Nicholi Drybone

Lobster Pot -- Welp, okay, another win for you, almost a kill even, yikes.  But I did
manage to draw a little blood that time. -- Rymas Volkmauri

Abelinda Chase -- Hey hey, I'd like to not have to fight you again, in that you're
getting very dangerous. -- Balzec

Debra Farin -- Excellent!  Glad I could help keep that fine record so fine. *smiles*
-- Ria Rosedancer

Cartographer -- Really, you had to tie me for Unchartered Recognition Leader?  You do
know that neither of us gets it now, don't you? -- Lobster Pot

Lobster Pot -- I believe YOU tied ME.  I am eagerly awaiting your concession speech.
-- Cartographer

Balzec -- Four clashes!  We did good. -- Debra Farin

Ria Rosedancer -- You seem to be "off your feed" lately.  Not that I suppose you're
failing to eat or anything, but where is the light-footed dancing we all expect of
you? -- Abelinda Chase

I don't think dwarves should be enrolled in the study of kung-fu.  It gives them an
edge they don't need. -- Frem Harid

Cartographer -- Chart that one, eh? -- Erbin Goetz

Modreft Megleen -- Yeahyeahyeah, but wait till you see me NEXT time. -- Forlis Hooler

Our congratulations to Balzec. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Abelina Chase -- Looking good, yes, you are.  Let's not match again for a while yes?
Seems I've been in a slump lately. -- Ria Rosedancer

Losbster Pot -- Nice match up for me, and I should put some metal stuff on, too,
ouch! -- Nickoli Drybone

Anchor Thrower -- Yes, you are dangerous!  I must be more careful. -- Ryuas Volkmauri

Forlis Healer -- I think we shall have many exciting matches in the future.  With
each winning and losing a few. -- Modreth Mcgleen

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
