                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My manager is not sure if he wants me to graduate quite yet or not, so the tea
 is taking a break while we await the results of our newest recruit, Dwarf Fricassee,
in the mail-in.
     Best of luck to Sergeant 2 and the Mongoose on their fight for the throne.

Rib Iaye

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to MEDAL OF HONOR Z2, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SAND DANCERS stable.  Well, if ya don't 
shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  RIB IAYE did not fight this 
week so his title was forfeit.  In front of all the crowds, THE MONGOOSE took the 
Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
SILVER SLIM, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, SERGEANT 4 went after SILVER SLIM, who was higher by 21 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, SERGEANT 4 bested SILVER SLIM.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

A big cheer for Raltuman Omelet, Champion in the Freshmen tourney. -- Jorja and the
Sand Dancers

Rib Iaye -- You're right.  The Convicted Assassin is a wimp, and stupid besides. --
Mandi Cobra

The Kung-Fu Master is pathetic.  But we knew that. -- the Mongoose
P.S.  Something snake-like about him, don't you think?  Especially in the selfish way
he withheld skills from me.

Sergeant 4 -- As a purely philanthropic gesture, if such is possible from an elf to a
dwarf, I advise you not to play poker in the future.  You just don't have the knack.
Although you are good at soaking up skills. -- Silver Slim

Sergeant 3 -- Yeah, okay, I can take a hint.  You want my seat at the bar, you can
HAVE it. -- Rock Hardman

Caleam Sea Bass -- Lemon pepper seems to be the key, and a very tasty result, too. --
Mandi Cobra

Orc Rind -- Mandi said I should just... BITE YOU.  I can't.  The very thought makes
me shudder. -- Ann Nasty

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
