                             Notes from the arena champ.

Things should pick up around here soon.  The lists are top-heavy and loaded with
quality fighters.  Sounds like fun to me!  Barring the intervention of some Stray
Cat, it'll be you 'n me again, Shana.  I'll throw in a new wrinkle for you.

                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for CHELBAGHEERA, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing 
DISHONEST JUSTICE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Our battling duelmaster 
QUICKLIME has managed to hold the title, fending off KUNG-FU MASTER's none too subtle 
advances.  Better luck next time, LIN TIRIAN.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, 
but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid SAND DANCERS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does LIN TIRIAN really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause WILD OATS beats feet every time SAND DANCERS 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     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 LIN TIRIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Quicklime -- Jorja tells me that I was "lucky" not to become duelmistress.  I'm not
seeing that.  I would have been good in that position.  I would have been the BEST in
that position. -- Quicklime

They tell me that it isn't the SAME Ambitious Guard each time, but he's still
pathetic. -- Mirial Adamant

I'd've liked to carve that Dishonest Justice into dogmeat, but I don't suppose any
self-respecting dog would eat him.  Too bad. -- Deelar Marion

The Embezzling Scribe?  I have nothing to do with such people. -- Chelbagheera

Houdini -- We'll hold you to that. -- Jorja

Cadmus -- Letter coming, I think. -- Jorja

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
