                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail gladiators of Rocanis!

It is I, your new Duelmaster, Mytori Priest.  I was expecting a match against either 
Ahsoka Tano, Hondo Ohnaka, or Jommy for the title of Duelmaster last turn.  It was 
likely a good turn of events, as it seems Skull Squadron received a bad shipment of 
weapons into our stable.  Two broken weapons cost Black Steal his DA match and another 
almost cost Harbinger to lose his.  

Before proceeding, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the loss of One Eye in the arena 
to Locky.  I know my manager Grimwood debated heavily about sending him to the Dark 
Arena several turns earlier.  However, at 6'8" with decent stats, the expectation was 
that his damage would overcome his slowness.  At the end of all things, it was better 
that he died on the sands, then being sent to the Dark Arena with a sword in one hand, 
a torch in the other, and a desperate prayer on his lips.  

I contemplated blood feuding Locky, but he actually did my manager a favor.  
Furthermore, his ranking was still a little low, so if he rises up the ranks and I'll 
still Duelmaster, I'll give him a shot at the throne.  Besides, I want to prove my 
worth holding Duelmaster.  In the event Clone Wars returned, my challenge went to 
Hondo Ohnaka.  

Since we have two open spots in our stable, Grimwood is holding open tryouts for 
anyone that feels like they have what it takes to be a gladiator of the Skull Squadron 
stable.  Grimwood has reviewed the first two candidates and indicated their tryouts 
will begin at dusk, so he wanted to remind them to be sure to bring a torch.  

I'm being motioned that it's time for the Duelmaster's feast at Mylar's.  Having swept 
six of the top honors for a second turn in a row, all food and drinks are paid in 
full; compliments of Grimwood.  All of Rocanis is free to get their fill.  

I'll close with a favorite saying my manager told me after my first loss.  "Remember, 
each defeat in the arena is only a delay on the long road to becoming the Duelmaster 
of the city."

                                          Humbly, 

                                          Mytori Priest 
                                          Duelmaster of Rocanis   
                                          Grimwood, manager of Skull Squadron 		 	   		  

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ROCANIS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  ROCANIS watched with 
glee as SKULL SQUADRON got knocked off top spot by MEN OF STEEL!  What's with 
STAMKOS?  He actually beat MEN OF STEEL's JOMMY, and walked away with 22 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at MEN OF STEEL.  JOMMY lost 15 points to STAMKOS.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe JOMMY will provide more easy wins...  Try as he 
might, OVECHKIN wasn't good enough at persuading MYTORI PRIEST to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I 
hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ROCANIS thinks MEN OF STEEL 
and their 292-336-41 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my 
day, no team with a 289-334-40 would scare me off!  What's the problem, SKULL 
SQUADRON?   
     Warriors of ROCANIS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  We all knew it 
had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around with a 7-8-0, and LOCKY 
easily took care of HARBINGER.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Vel Steelwind -- I'll speak for Black Steel as he'll be riding in a box to the Isle of 
the Eye. You broke my two weapons in the first minute? It's safe to say that if the 
subsequent beat-down from my fists would have been with a weapon, our positions would 
have been reversed. - Grimwood, manager Skull Squadron  

Rirorni Spy -- I didn't realize the Rirorni employed Shagornan Elves to do their dirty 
work in the arena. -- Mytori Priest, Duelmaster of RocanisStamkos -- I wasn't sure if 
I was watching a gladiatorial match or a WWE smackdown event. I'd have to say the 
fight got much more interesting after my weapon broke. I wasn't expecting to win, but 
it was entertaining. -- Harbinger

Locky -- While it is in my nature to blood-feud, you actually did me a favor. I wasn't 
too sorry to see One Eye die on the sands. His inability to win overshadowed his 
stats. -- Grimwood.

Iota Draconis -- Yes, it was embarrassing to lose to the war flail. -- Grimwood
