                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wonderful, from the sound of that fan (who was perfectly right, mind you), you
had better sneak out the back door of the arena and not go out through the lobby and
courtyard.  You could just be ASKING for trouble there.

                                       Tabatan

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of 
losers, lets take a look at SAND DANCERS, who went down to 5th from 9th.  Life is 
tough.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, EXPERIMENTAL has advanced 4 places in 
the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for JOHN MICHAEL, who flew up 14 points in 
the rankings after mashing TREENVA TARAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was GYHARD, who dropped 12 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with JADE MASTER.  WONDERFUL got through to the 
Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick TABATAN's tail out 
of the throne!  It's a proud day for the THAT'S US stable, as their warrior, 
WONDERFUL, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect 
the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that FIFTH QUARTER was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of FIFTH QUARTER's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  FIFTH 
QUARTER + Weapons That go Boom = THAT'S US + Avoid City.  And who is this WOODY you 
ask, with 114 points and a 12-78-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, TERMINAL went after WORRIED, who was higher 
by 19 points.  Well, when the dust settled, TERMINAL was subdued by WORRIED.   
     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.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JADE MOUNTAIN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

it's been a long time. -- Woody
P.S.  Hmm, that gives me fourteen wins.  And I have got two ratings, also.  Only
experts, but hey, a rating's a rating, right?  Maybe I WILL make it out of here
alive.

For, um, tanning purposes, yes, that's it.  Tanning. -- Volto Leeni
P.S.  I was just, erm, trying to keep you from getting too cold, you know, with the
