                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm sort of running out of things to say--I'm a fighter and lover, not a writer
and publisher!  If I'm here on the throne much longer, things will get much quieter.
     But I will offer you these great sayings:
          A piker a day keeps the doctor away.
          Piker's rule.
          Haste makes wastes, but not pikers.
Luck to you all.
          Dowd

                                      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 PADFOOT, who flew up 13 points in the 
rankings after mashing DONAL PINES like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DONAL PINES lost to PADFOOT 
and drops 11 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was HOGWARTS EXPRESS' WORMTAIL, who was turned away from the Duelmastership 
by DOWD.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at 
bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad SAND DANCERS?  Big bad SAND DANCERS.  Big bad SAND DANCERS.  JADE MOUNTAIN's 
afraid of the big bad SAND DANCERS.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause MANAGER MUSINGS beats feet every time SAND 
DANCERS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this HATCHET you ask, with 6 
points and a 1-1-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Can any one out there say 
'weasel'?  Oh well, just saying PRONGS will do.  He challenged 24 points down to 
trash SHORT ROCK.  Definition of petty:  PRONGS beat SHORT ROCK, a mismatch of 24 
points.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Ultra T'ssar -- Well, to tell you the truth, me and Dowd and a few others got
religion. -- Vern
P.S. The last turn 5-0-1 blessing helped!

Manager Musings seems to have taken on a revitalization.  Cool! -- FTF Manager
(pumped!)

Paranoid Asylum -- You sneaked in there with more points than me to take Top Team On
The Move.  A tip of the hat--but beware. -- FTF Manager

Footsteps -- Oh no!  Following me, dogging my heels, RELENTLESS!  I'm being pursued,
I have hidden enemies, they're OUT TO GET ME! -- Short Rock

Snape -- Well, I'm a hunter, you see.  I can do this kind of thing.  Snipes, snapes,
it doesn't matter, I can get 'em. -- Donal Pines

Padfoot -- You're right back there with Footsteps, aren't you?  Following, sneaking,
OUT TO GET ME.  I hate that. -- Sernillan the increasingly paranoid

Corinthian -- Eh?  I'm not getting this.  Are you saying that all the Doric and Ionic
types are out to get YOU?  Why?  I mean, who'd WANT you? -- Ulra T'Ssar

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
