                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I feel sure that Garth didn't need that unbroken record.  That it would be
dangerous for him, going into the tourney, make him a target, you know?  So...I
fixed that.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Coming up with 
a solid 1-1-0 outing, WEAPONS I WON'T USE has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  It 
looks like the guys(?) at SAND DANCERS had a good week as they went 3-1-0 to put them 
in 3rd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for VERN, who flew up 
22 points in the rankings after mashing BUSHMASTER like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was BUSHMASTER, who dropped 20 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with VERN.  It's a proud day for 
the IN COLD BLOOD stable, as their warrior, GILA, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JADE MOUNTAIN arena.  
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!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch MANAGER MUSINGS' act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from SAND DANCERS.  Well 
dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, SHORT ROCK would be president.  Although it 
may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Ouch, that hurt!  Felt like a big, tall pine fell on me during combat. -- Garth

Talk-To-Death -- Well, what do you think I do everyday, Bud? -- Soultaker

Ulra -- I fought my best and am proud. -- Vern

Congrats to Donal Pines, Duelmaster, who made Garth look like a sapling. -- FTF
Manager

Vern -- Oh...I thought somebody said "Fern," and I was all set to water you.  And
then you whacked me.  No fern ever did that! -- Ulra T'ssar

Buried in the sand by a To-Fu Backstabber!  The ignominy, the shame! -- Short Rock

Greatsword -- Oh...I dunno, if you were big enough, it might work. -- Sernillan
P.S.  And your opponent wasn't going anywhere.  Which, I will admit, seems unlikely,
because if I saw greatsword coming at me, I'd MOVE.

Ed. -- No glue, huh?  Isn't that just LIKE tofu?  Let's you down every which way. --
Donal Pines

     I think you're being unreasonable to expect so much from a mere bean curd.  It
     does fine in its appointed role, after all. -- Ed.
