    Rao of the Skull Squadron stable passed through a group of merchants that were 
packing up their wares for the day. Mouthwatering aromas wafted from a nearby 
building. He looked up and saw a painted sign reading "The Wanton Troll" hanging in 
front of a fairly nondescript building.  The sign, decorated with an illustration of a 
burnt orange female troll's head, swung slightly in the evening breeze. He then 
noticed his stablemate, the Mytori Priest, head towards the entrance and raise his 
arms wide, as if accepting some fate. 
    A large, orange-skinned female troll rushed out to greet him. The creature was at 
least six and a half feet tall with long, coarse, black hair and a bosom that any man 
would yearn for, except that it was on a particularly hideous troll. The troll grabbed 
his stablemate in a bear hug, pinning his head between her breasts.  She swung his 
almost limp body back and forth like a doll hugged by a child.
    Rao thought, what is he doing? He continued to watch for a few moments and 
realized the troll wasn't going to let him go. She'd eventually smother him. 
Understanding it might not look good to his manager, Grimwood, if his least favorite 
gladiator told him his favorite had perished between the breasts of a troll, he 
stepped towards the overzealous figure. 
    Sighing and realizing what would happen next, Rao said, "Beulah, I want to pat 
your fanny." 
    Beulah released her grip. The Mytori Priest wobbled, gasping for breath, when 
Beulah placed him back on his feet. Beulah turned around and bent over, sticking out 
her derriere as far as she could. Rao patted Beulah's behind gently.
    "Welcome to the Wanton Troll," Beulah called out, opening the door and shoved them 
    Laughter, music, and the aroma of food greeted them as the door opened, then 
closed.  To the left of the entrance was a bar full of customers. The covered bar had 
hanging mugs overhead, each with a facial design of a troll. At the end of the bar was 
a small, tapped keg. Larger, barrel sized kegs of ale were stacked in one corner. 
Round wooden tables were scattered throughout the room. A lone barmaid was rushing 
about, taking and delivering orders. 
    Rao looked for a clean table, but eventually decided to settle for just an empty 
one. He pulled the Mytori Priest with him, who was still recovering from Beulah's 
welcoming grasp. 
    "What were you doing?" Rao asked pushing aside a few empty mugs on the table.
    "I looked like a fool," Mytori Priest replied.
    "Yeah, you did. I thought everyone knew the password to get into the Wanton 
    "No, I looked like a fool on the sands last turn. I go about with this blustering 
about blood feuding Locky and when I step on the sand, I find Ovechkin. I just stood 
there slack-jawed expecting Locky and Ovechkin took quick advantage and made short 
work of me."
    "Well, I was a little surprised myself on how the fight went, especially when you 
bested him the previous turn," Rao said.
    "I'm embarrassed," Mytori Priest said and let his head fall on the table with a 
solid thud. "Ouch."
    "So, you thought you'd end it all by being smothered by Beulah?"
    "It sounded good at the time."
    "It was stupid."
    'I know."  
    Several heartbeats passed between the two.  A barmaid with disheveled black hair 
came up and asked for their order.
    Rao asked, "What's your special."
    "Flaming Hobbits."
    "Good, two Flaming Hobbits."
    "I don't drink," Mytori Priest said.
    "You do tonight.  Two Flaming Hobbits," Rao repeated.
    The barmaid returned with two round, short and fat glasses with brown liquor. She 
touched the surface with a candle and they ignited with a small flame.  
    Rao blew it out and sipped.  The liquor had a smooth taste. Glancing at the Mytori 
Priest he noticed a smile as he also drank.
    "Good isn't it. Rocanis has the best brews I've ever tasted," Rao said as he took 
another drink.
    The Mytori Priest swallowed and breathed out deeply. "Yes, more refined than the 
drinks in the Empire."
    "Agreed. To the Rirorni Empire," Rao said raising his glass in toast.
    "May she ever ride on a young mare," Mytori Priest said took a drink.
    "Now, on to Locky," Rao said.
    "I'm sure the Men of Steel stable is getting a good laugh about, 'I'm coming' 
remark I made and losing the Duelmaster title to Ovechkin," Mytori Priest said, taking 
another drink.
    "Ovechkin is good.  There is no shame losing to a good warrior.  However, Locky 
killed two of our stablemates; one your close friend.  I suspect he wouldn't hesitate 
to do it again."
    The Mytori Priest looked up from his drink and then finished the rest.
    Rao continued, "You are the only one with the skills to beat him on the sands.  
Regardless of what happened at the Gladiatorial Commission office and why the blood 
feud didn't go through, only the great gods of the plains know. You have a duty to 
yourself and this stable to avenge them." 
    "I know. I think I'll be more quiet about the blood feud this time, without all 
the fanfare and bluster."
    "Not a bad idea. Besides, I think he already knows Skull Squadron is coming for 

                                          -- Skull Squadron

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  SKULL SQUADRON now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Hey everybody, watch out for LOCKY, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after 
mashing STAMKOS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was STAMKOS, who dropped 20 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with LOCKY.  Isn't that life?  One minute you're on top of the world and 
then next you're laid out on a slab!  OVECHKIN was killed by MYTORI PRIEST.  Say no 
more.  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!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid MISSING TEETH, please raise you hand. 
Wow.  Does ROCANIS really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause SKULL SQUADRON beats feet every time MISSING TEETH 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
LOCKY would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  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

Ovechkin -- Congratulations on Duelmaster.  I wasn't expecting our match up last turn, 
but that was a mistake I hopefully rectified.  I have a bit of business to take care 
of and then I'll be back to reclaim it. -- Mytori Priest of Skull Squadron

Locky -- I'm more than a little embarrassed that my blood feud challenge didn't go 
through.  It would have gone so well with my Duelmaster Column and spotlight last 
turn.  In any event, I'll keep it more low key, so in any event...Blood shall be 
answered with blood! -- Mytori Priest
