                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's amazing the things you can find buried in the sand!  Buried Treasure!  I
was hoping for a really good pair of sunglasses, or one of those "survives
everything" watches, but it was only gold and gems.  Still, gold and gems are useful.

                                   Mralissa Loon

                                      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 BASH BROS SUITCASE, as they are pushed from the 
coveted top team spot by the MIDDLE WAY 18 stable.  It was a tough week for THE 
FLYING FISHES, to drop 4 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 2-2-0 
outing, THE BEGINNING has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for WONTON NOT NOW, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing VETERAN 
MERCENARY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Going for the gusto and coming 
up with aught but bloody knuckles was FOUND IN THE SAND's BURIED TREASURE, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by MRALISSA LOON.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ERINIKA arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid MIDDLE WAY 18, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does ERINIKA really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  MIDDLE WAY 18 + Weapons That go Boom = PALINDROMES + Avoid City.  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, TALITHA SEALE would be president.  Although it 
may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  ADAM of THE BEGINNING had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought 
ADAM showed great skill and promise when he won victory over TALITHA SEALE.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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 ERINIKA 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

Mralissa Loon -- Your name is hard to type and you've now buried both myself and my
teammate back in the sand.  Don't expect a Christmas Card from us! -- Buried Treasure

Tiger Shark -- You probably don't like Wontons anyways.  But very nice air show! --
Wonton Not Now

Wonton Not Now -- I should hope not!  I'm not a wonton woman at all. -- Talitha Seale

Adam -- Ah, you were always like that:  impulsive, impetuous, never thinking of
consequences.  Remind me to send you some of my apple pie. -- Talitha Seale

Bluegill -- Is that what we used to call sunfishes?  Caught 'em in farm ponds when I
was a kid, and if they were bigger than a kid's hand, we ate 'em, otherwise threw
them back.  I think.  It was a long time ago, and I might be misremembering. --
Ursula Zaroff

X-4 -- How provoking. -- Raemond Purr

Mud Puppy -- Not to mention that you got my clothes all muddy.  My momma always had a
hissy fit over that. -- Yildor Zane

                 NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENA (DM 85)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Effective immediately, any 
teams placed in DM 85 and not transferred out to another arena, will be automatically 
deleted a month after the tournament.  If you have questions about any of your teams, 
please contact Customer Service. -- RSI
