                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Amen-Tei,

I'm surprised (pleasantly) to be here.  Avalanch Lilly, you made me look like a star.
I appreciate that greatly.  Bouncing Bea, I'm glad you're gone; I don't know if
Furious Terror could take any more.  Our team basically stinks, but we'll hang here
for a little while.  Good luck to all.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to WAYFARERS, as they are pushed from the coveted top 
team spot by the CAR AND DRIVER stable.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, CAR AND 
DRIVER has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for NO WAY!, 
who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing ROADBLOCK like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was HENRICH, who 
dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with DAYTONA.  Our 
battling duelmaster SPEEDWAY has managed to hold the title, fending off FRELSY's none 
too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, SUPERIOR FORCES 5405.  4 out of 5 
gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that CAR AND DRIVER was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of CAR AND DRIVER's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SUPERIOR FORCES 5405 beats feet 
every time CAR AND DRIVER smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  For those of you who missed it, 
Death showed up, grabbed FURTIVE RETURNS II by the ear and took her away to a place 
where she won't need a coat.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will 
may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in AMEN-TEI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Furious Terror -- Did you know you almost got put down here as Rufisou?  What the
fingers will get up to when the mind isn't paying attention!  Anyway, I'm off to my
future, which is probably bartending in some tiny town, and I leave the arena to you.
-- Bouncing Bea
P.S.  And anyone else who wants it, of course.

Speedway -- Oh, yes!  Better you have the title than I do.  I can never think of
anything worth saying, but I always get stuck with saying it anyway. -- Avalanch Lily
P.S.  This personal being a case in point.

Frelsy -- I find your existence offensive, but unfortunately, there isn't a damned
thing I can do about it. -- Tom-Tom Tora

Finishing up with our old friend the Veteran Mercenary.  Wow. -- Roadblock

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm
