                             Notes from the arena champ.

      My opponent was much too Sinister to hold the title.  Believe me, I know.  I
may be blond, but I'm no fair-haired boy not to recognize Sinister when I meet him on
the sands!  To this little input-errored pipsqueak, I say, "Bwahaha!"  I am actually
much more sinister than you are!

                                    Deelar Marion

                                      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 MESSALIDA, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing FRATSFA 
SLAVE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Well, everybody's pal DEELAR MARION 
moved his record to 13-9-0 by defeating VETERAN MERCENARY in the Duelmaster's Title 
Bout and gaining 8 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

If anybody thinks I should have sympathy for the Fratsfa Slave, they can jolly well
think again!  They're all dispicable, the Fratsfans, and that includes Deelar.
Humans pretending to be as good as elves!  In the immortal words of Debby Tonte, "As
if!" -- Chelbagheera
P.S.  But don't think I disapprove of Fratsfa Slaves, oh, no!  They're quite a hot
commodity in the Itrilian kingdoms.

So that's a Dangerous Criminal?  Hmm.  I can learn a lot from him. -- Messalida

Sliced and diced Cult Member.  Yes!  The arenamistress shouldn't have stepped in and
stopped me before I turned him into complete philly steak. -- Shana Two-Knives

That Convicted Thief is a joke.  Back where *I* come from, he'd have trouble stealing
candy from a baby.  All the babies have knives and are prepared to defend their candy
to the last bite. -- Halgar Snagtooh

Rogar Thorfin -- All who enter this arena are worthy of death, so yours does not come
amiss.  May you learn well in your next life so that you may eventually be reborn as
human. -- Arenamistress Migonelle

Chelbagheera -- (whimper) -- Aljenj, Fratsfa Slave

Messalida -- Just passable, for an amateur. -- Vorgald, the Most Dangerous Criminal

Shana Two-Knives -- You will pay for this, human! -- Iminisilliond, Member of the
Cult of the Red Leaf

Halgar Snagtooth -- Gosh, how'd you do that? -- Blinky Dove, apprentice thief
