                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That's the trouble with short prophetic names.  They don't tell you who's on
which end.  In this case, Smash smashed into me and dropped.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to INCONSISTENT FURY, as they are pushed from the 
coveted top team spot by the THEM stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for ERBIN GOETZ, 
who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing NICKOLI DRYBONE like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was NICKOLI 
DRYBONE, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
ERBIN GOETZ.  The most challenged warrior this week was DEBRA FARIN.  If this keeps 
up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Drawing on all of his experience as 
a 9-4-2 warrior, SMASH went for the Duelmastership against DEBRA FARIN this week.  
It's a proud day for the THEM stable, as their warrior, SMASH, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that INCONSISTENT FURY was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing 
the personal hygiene of INCONSISTENT FURY's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I 
may not be funny, but catch THEM's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from INCONSISTENT FURY.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 ROCANIS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Whomp -- Whew!  I can see you're one of those prophetically named types.  Wow.  I
really had to work--standing still IS work when someone's whomping you--to come
through that. -- Forlis Hooler

Hal'igge Joyroc -- Well... ah, there it is.  I won.  Jumped you, hit you, and won.  I
can go with that, and I'll buy you a drink to make it easier for you to go with it.
After all, you're still alive to take a drink. -- Erbin Goetz

Nickoli Drybone -- Five skills for me?  That was a profitable loss. -- Bernilla Danz

Manza Wiggles -- Big guy, aren't you?  Named for... manzanita worms, maybe? -- Ilbar
Kamo

Ieza von Draka -- We'll hope not.  Your petite loveliness is an ornament to our
arena. -- Bernilla Danz
P.S.  Actually, it was one of my male teammates who came up with that.
