                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, the standbys.  At least they're here when you need them.  Although I wish
Sweet Anella could be a woman sometimes.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in DAL 
SHANG.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for UNLUCKY DUCK, who flew up 10 points in the rankings after 
mashing TYLLA TYRN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was DUCK KA-BOB, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with ONE-EYED YOFAN.  Our battling duelmaster KILLIAN TEN VIR has 
managed to hold the title, fending off LENDO TEN CHARDIN's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, DAL SHANG.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     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!  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.  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

Three and oh against the standbys, but!  At least we have a couple of real fights,
against Ducks.  Glad you guys are here. -- Jorja for the Sand Dancers

Better Duck -- Ah...maybe you'd better jump when I'm going for your feet?  I wouldn't
want to see a nasty accident here. -- Merro Dosh

Tenderized Duck -- I don't BELIEVE that!  I promise you, I have NO hidden tourney
fights, so why did I win? -- Tylla Tyrn, totally confused
P.S.  You might consider going into the florist business instead, since you're so
good with houseplants?

Our congratulations to Titania for her tourney victories. -- Jorja and the Sand
Dancers
