                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't think you're ready to be duelmaster yet, Moe.  A little seasoning first,
okay?  Maybe... onion, a pinch of sage, a twist of lemon peel....

                                   Elise Goudge

                                      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!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for NIANIAN FRITTATA, who flew up 15 points in the rankings 
after mashing LINKIN LOGGER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was MOE FROSTTOOTH, who dropped 11 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with CHEBOB ERLE.  In front of all the crowds, 
TIKI LA'BANE took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  
Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
