                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am a Necromancer, not a talker or a writer.  So this will be swift.  Very
swift.
     I will not be defending the crown next turn.  Houdini has determined that I am
no "maxed", so that means a rest?
     It only seems appropriate that I tell you my stats.  6-7-9-9-15-17-21, although
not necessarily in THAT order, unless you consider ascending an order.
     Good luck on living. (That was a joke!)
                      Necromancer

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in LIN 
TIRIAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Try as 
hard as the MAGIC ARTISTS stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and 
ex-Duelmaster) NECROMANCER before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, 
STRAY CAT took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that DOMINATION was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of DOMINATION's warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  DOMINATION + 
Weapons That go Boom = MAGIC ARTISTS + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, SHANA THE KNIFE would be president.  Although it may be a 
contest she doesn't want to win.  ABJURER of MAGIC ARTISTS had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 11 points in a challenge which she lost.  I thought 
ABJURER showed great skill and promise when she was defeated by SHANA THE KNIFE.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in LIN TIRIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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

Shana -- There was no illusion there, was there.  I don't like to play games. --
Necromancer

Mirial -- Me enjoyum that!  How. -- Medicine Man

Greetings all, you should see three Artists fight this turn.  The other two are
tournament bound and at the peak of their lot. -- Houdini, Manager Magic Artists

Necromancer -- Oh, good!  The thought of Shana with a title is enough to make my
blood run cold, and I'm generally hot-blooded. -- Jorja

Necromancer -- You oaf!  *I* should be the top warrior here!  You're a mere MAGICIAN,
a dabbler in the black arts.  It's an INSULT to all true warriors to have you in the
highest position. -- Shana the Knife

Soldier 1 -- Er... I felt sorry for you because you don't have a name? -- Deelar
Marion
P.S.  But that "bury me in the sand" business was over the top.

Medicine Man -- I think it was the drum that put me off.  Or maybe the tobacco and
herbal smoke.... -- Mirial Adamant

Jorgen Thorfin -- I didn't know it would be like THIS.  Gods. -- Chelbagheera
P.S.  You're supposed to be smitten with awe and adoration by my beauty and charisma.
Better work on that.
