                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I can't say as I've ever expected to become Duelmaster for being beaten by one,
but at this point in my career, I'll take what I can get.  Congrats are in order for
Kjarran's Hammer on his well-deserved graduation--drinks are on him!

I guess I should share the wealth as long as I'm up here, so I'll dole out advice for
all my fellow Jurinians, to help them become better fighters, so they can aspire to
my great heights:

1.  Pet a kitten (puppies acceptable if you're a man).
2.  Help an old lady across the street (puppies NOT acceptable, as they should be
    kept on a leash at all times!).
3.  Remember to avoid Fear Factory in the event that your challenges don't go through
    due to an inactive team!

Peace.  Love.  Understanding.

                     Your lovely Duelmistress,
                       Amazonia

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for LOCKENLOAD, who flew up 18 points in the 
rankings after mashing NITEHAWK SPARKWING like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was FLAME SPIDER, who dropped 10 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with JR FUNKENSTEIN.  Well, everybody's 
pal AMAZONIA moved hers record to 18-15-3 by defeating KUNG-FU MASTER in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 2 recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad THE FRENCHMEN?  Big bad THE FRENCHMEN.  Big bad THE FRENCHMEN.  JURINE's 
afraid of the big bad THE FRENCHMEN.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch CLAN GHOST BEARS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft 
at running from THE FRENCHMEN.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
CHILLILI CHES would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to 
win.   
     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 JURINE 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.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Bjorn -- Welcome to Jurine! -- The Frenchmen

Laelkorissa -- Actually, we're all honorary French persons; well, except for Molly;
methinks she's Irish. -- J.R.

Bjorn -- Welcome to Jurine.  Unfortunately this arena is tiny.  It means a lot of
free fights for my guys though.  I don't know if my guys can take it easy on Tamara,
the bashers I have down there love fresh meat. -- Var, mgr. of Fear Factory

Sand Maggot -- Er?  Very strange person, you are. -- Chillili Ches

Truth Decay -- Clever, but then, we're all used to it these days.  Mental flossing
morning and evening, that's the trick to holding it at bay. -- Laelkorissa

Jr Funkenstein -- That old thing?  Not a problem.  We buy 'em by the gross. --
Laelkorissa
P.S.  And you can guess what quality we get.  (sigh)  I tell Jorja it isn't an
economy, but does she listen?

Ha Ha!  Jorja thought we'd "evaporate" by the end of the year, but we showed HER! --
Chillili Ches and Laelkorissa

Dr Spankenstein -- And who, I ask you, was the wimp then, eh? -- (name withheld by
request), Convicted Thief
