                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All Hail Rocanis, Greatest arena in all the land!  Matched with an old school
hero from our glory days-- Hugh Huraa to yas.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ROCANIS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Coming up with a solid 3-2-1 outing, MEN OF STEEL has advanced 3 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for TRIUMPHANT, who flew up 17 points in the 
rankings after mashing CHAS ESKER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was JEMILLA LOURDON, who dropped 10 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with GLORIOUS.  In front of all the crowds, 
TOMAS took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that MEN OF STEEL was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of MEN OF STEEL's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not 
be funny, but catch INCONSISTENT FURY's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from MEN OF STEEL.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
FORLIS HOOLER, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by 
a 'touched' warrior, SMASH went after DOLGAN, who was higher by 23 points.  Well, 
when the dust settled, SMASH was subdued by DOLGAN.  NICKOLI DRYBONE of INCONSISTENT 
FURY had better have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought NICKOLI DRYBONE showed great skill and promise when he 
defeated FORLIS HOOLER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Wecome Back, Men of Steel!  Happy I could give a win to you last turn.  Hope you
break to 100th this round-- not vs me-- but probably will be.*smiles*  Hopefully,
I'll survive, I'm sure Tomas kilt a few of mine.  A few turns to knock the rust out
and your top three will be graduated.  ABs are the Rave these days.  Lots of luck to
you. -- Judge 56-119 and the rest of the Inconsistent Fury

more of that again.  'Cause if I remember... hmmm must go look at the guild hause
grave yard. -- Ieza Van'Draka

Calis -- Gratz on your victory.  They are just as hard to come by as hard to come by
as they were before, perhaps even more so...

Bam -- Hmmm ok so well next time maybe. -- Rathrok Mulroot

Rirorni Spy -- Spy's not sposed to fight. -- Nickdi Drybone

     Somebody attacks me, I fight. -- Dhalgoi, Rirorni Spy

Dolgan -- As soon as I heard that one of us had a slim victory, I knew it would be
me.  You aren't slim. -- Forlis Hooler
P.S.  I might call you... burly.

Whomp -- No lie. -- Chas Esker

If I was from Trocar, I'd desert, too.  Who wants to be from there?  Better...
Xochithlan. -- Chebob Erle

I eat archers for breakfast. -- Jemilla Lourdon
P.S.  With catsup.
