                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Convicted Assassin doesn't LISTEN.  And you know what they say, if you won't
learn from the past, you'll end up repeating it.

                                      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 JIMMY LOW, who flew up 16 points in the 
rankings after mashing AMBITIOUS GUARD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KARRI NOLIS was subdued by 
HURRICANE and drops 9 points.  It's a proud day for the FLAGG'S DEVASTATORS stable, 
as their warrior, VICIOUS THRILL, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     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.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VALAMANTIS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Quick Sand -- I *suppose* I should be honored to have the only "real" match on the
team, and I *did* win it, but... I dunno.  Maybe I'm just feeling a little low today.

So, huh, we went five-oh today, but four of the fights were against standbys.  Was
this supposed to make us feel extra-good? -- the Middle Way
