                             Notes from the arena champ.

So, why did Lump get to sit on the throne for so long, whereas I get to be Duelmaster 
once, and boom, I'm invited to the Isle.    

For those who care, I'm a 7-8-15-17-11-5-21 AB with a Master Attack, AdEx Parry and 
Initiative, and Expert in Riposte on 48 learned skills.  The Commission tells me I 
prefer the Longsword, with a Low/Moderate Rythm while using the Lunge Tactic, and I 
tend to learn Initiative skills (my boss knew that long ago).

                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  BAD SIGNS now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, CHAIN GANG 
has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for TSUNAMI ALERT, 
who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing JUBILEE like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was JUBILEE, who dropped 
16 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with TSUNAMI ALERT.  Our 
battling duelmaster SPAWN'S BLUE BEER has managed to hold the title, fending off 
VIRGINAL GIGOLO's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, TELORINTHE.  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.  And who is this MAJOR DISASTER you ask, 
with 16 points and a 2-1-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     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 real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
