                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, here I am, the champ, something Domgan never achieved.  Perhaps it's my
good looks that made me a better warrior, though I'm guessing he's just too dumb.  I
can't believe he's going to the Isle before me, I actually win a fight here and
there.  Speaking of which, good fight, Ieza, hopefully I'll graduate before you
exploit my weaknesses.  Then again, I might see the Dark Arena early, to learn how to
"kill" people.

                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for RATHNOK MULROOT, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing 
DOBIE FROME like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  DOBIE FROME was beat by RATHNOK MULROOT and drops 13 
points.  Our battling duelmaster ERIK has managed to hold the title, fending off 
FORLIS HOOLER's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, MIDDLE WAY 20.  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.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Big deal, so DOLGAN got mashed in the Dark Arena.  With 
his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka waka).  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.  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
