                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So!  I'm the duelmaster again.  Good.  I never did trust doctors.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  DC UNIVERSE seems to have it's eye on the top team spot, and if they 
continue having 3-0-0 weeks they may get it!  Hey everybody, watch out for HAWKMAN, 
who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing DEEMER EPPT like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
DEEMER EPPT was defeated by HAWKMAN and drops 11 points.  In front of all the crowds, 
DONNA took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 
5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JURINE arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad MIDDLE WAY 16?  Big bad MIDDLE WAY 16.  
Big bad MIDDLE WAY 16.  JURINE's afraid of the big bad MIDDLE WAY 16.  Tra la la la 
la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch ERRATA's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from MIDDLE WAY 16.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of WALLIS YENT, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  
In a mismatch, our friend HARNESS of ERRATA got heroic notions and challenged WALLIS 
YENT.  What did it get him?  A 5-2-0 record, that's what.  I heard HARNESS laughed 
all the way to the inn as his new point total of 83 was posted in the arena.  I guess 
beating WALLIS YENT really pays!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
