                             Notes from the arena champ.

I have to say, I honestly didn't anticipate having another week to impart my worldly 
wisdom on all of you.  It's quite a responsibility.  As I mentioned last week, I don't 
have a lot of arena fighting knowledge for you.  I got here by accident.  Took a wrong 
turn in Hoboken, I think.  So, since I have the floor, I will give you a few bits of 
wisdom.

     1. Always remember that wherever you go, there you are.

     2. If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.

     3. The first sign of a nervous breakdown is when you think your work is 
     terribly important.

     4. Live well, laugh often, love much.  After this week, people will be extra 
     motivated to beat me and get me out of the Duelmaster throne!

                                          Peace,

                                          Opus

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARUAK CITY needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, AARDVARK 
& CO., but ANIMAL FARM was just too good to be stopped.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's 
feelings or anything, but BEYOND THE WALL really goofed with their 0-5-0.  FLAGRANT 
FOWL like really fought hard to move up to 4th from 7th.  Way to go!  One team 
deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 3-0-0.  Keep it up, 
BULLDOGS!  Talk about hot teams!  WEIRD STUDENTS goes out, the very first time, and 
goes 4-1-0!  Like, what do you guys eat for breakfast?  MVP award for NAVY NARWHALE?  
ANIMAL FARM's proud of him after beating SUENTEUS PO and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  NORMALROACH's match with KYRIA cost him a loss of 18 points! 
Was that a tear I saw in MUTT's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't OPUS 
fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep. 
They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  AARDVARK & CO. was ARUAK CITY's most avoided team.  
Is there some award for that?  I don't know what ANIMAL FARM's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from AARDVARK & CO., that's fer sher.  
Like, is WOODSY OWL popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARUAK 
CITY!  He's got a 12-11-1, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  I hear BEYOND THE WALL sent BRIX to the 
Dark Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  It was kind of sad, seeing 
old LORD JULIUS stumbling around the arena, before WHITE WORM finished him off.  Oh 
well!  Didja see that awesome fight where WHITE WORM of ANIMAL FARM wiped out LORD 
JULIUS?  Who'da thought WHITE WORM had it in him?  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ARUAK CITY is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

I AM ANGRY!  You arena dorks are colluding against my well-managed warriors!  Jerks!  
Losers, you are!  How else could they fall to a 1-2 this turn?  This cannot be.  I 
will get you all! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Yellow Belly?  Lost to Jaka?  Nobody loses to Jaka.  Sheesh. What a set up!  I see 
your collusion, Cerebus, and raise you one. -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific 
Manager

Opus?  Opus, the twerpy lovebug?  Greenhorn lost to him?  Cheating is going on here 
and I shall get amends!  I shall! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Uh, I won, boss.  Smacked that Embezzling Scribe. Beat him like the plague! -- Black 
Plague, Proud Colorific

I don't want to hear it, Mino!  You are probably in on the cheating and leading the 
collusion.  You will pay.  I hate you and your critters! -- Purple People Eater, Proud 
Colorific Manager

Nicely done, Opus.  I loved your DM Column.  Kudos. -- Kennelworth

Opus, Duelmaster!  Again!  A salute to the feathered Duelmaster.  DMs drink free at 
The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor
P.S.  And of course we have your tea; we are a full-service inn.

Callamytie, you showed you were the best.  I couldn't chew with you. -- Cud

Foghorn Leghorn, that was flagrant of you to steal my bone and hide it in a tree.  How 
am I supposed to beat that kind of meanness? -- Mutt

Pin, it was a long search. I was up for it. -- Search Dog

Gorgore, great dance! I wanted to win, but you were better than me! -- Wah-Watusi (all 
danced out)

Cerebus, we were sad for your loss of Cirin.  May your newest recruit be a godling. -- 
Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

Health. Humility. Honor.  It is our duty to do Aruak City, The Heart And Soul Of 
Andoria, proud. -- Kennelworth

Yo ho ho!  Blimey!  Me critters done 3-0-1!  Luv me critters.  Aye. -- Mino

Aardvarks, Cerebus, everyone, I apologize for the killing of Cirin.  It was my first 
arena fight and I did not know my own strength.  I did not mean to.  I am very sorry. 
-- White Worm

Carboy, I guess an auto is no match for a whale? -- Navy Narwhale

Toucan Sam, it was my day.  Again.  Perhaps we lemurs just dote on toucans? -- Lilac 
Lemur

Green Horn -- Not sure how I pulled that out.  Even at the very end, I thought you 
were going to pull that one out.  One of the better battles I have been in. I think 
I'll buy you an ale at the tavern over that.  Counting on a rematch! -- Opus

Mutt -- I say, I say boy, ya' only had 3 losses before meeting my stable-mate Opus and 
I.  I think you were a worthy duelmaster but just needed a little seasoning, and not 
of the salt and pepper kind but more the stick-lots-of-holes-in-you sort of seasoning.  
Flagrant Fowl looks forward to future encounters with you.  You may as well fight 
Toucan and Woodsy while you're at it... -- Foghorn Leghorn

Lilac Lemur -- Strange. I apparently like streaks.  I have had a 6 win streak, a four 
win streak, and a few 3-5 loss streak.  This makes 3 losses in a row.  I've had 
enough.  Nice win and nice learns. -- Toucan Sam

Lord Julius -- You never really let me get going did you?  Well, that's okay. Someday 
maybe we'll try again. --- Woodsy Owl

Thank you all for your thoughts and kind words.  Do not mourn the passing of 
Kneedlinya; instead join us as we celebrate her life.  Proud, brave, strong and a 
skilled warrior, she lived for the contest and honor of being an arena gladiator.  As 
such, what better way to die, than to the musical ring of steel on steel and the roar 
of the crowd? -- Keyoke and the proud gladiators of Beyond the Wall

Normal Roach -- That, sir, was an excellent fight. -- Brix

Fare you well, proud warriors of Aruak City and my brothers of Beyond the Wall.  I go 
to join my beloved Kneedlinya, at whose side I belong. -- Brix

*The gladiators of Beyond the wall raise a sword and a tankard of ale in salute to 
Kneedlinya and the departing Brix*

George -- That was fun!  Shall we dance again? -- Toytles

Wah-Watusi -- I've always enjoyed a round of "Whack-a-Cat."  Next time don't stand 
still. -- Gorgore

Cud -- Aww, look Gorgore, it's a mini-you!  Just not as fast... or skilled. *smirks* 
-- Callamytie

Woodsy Owl -- (Calamity) Named so for the pain and suffering left in my wake.  *smiles 
sweetly* -- Callamytie

Davked Malek -- You must not have seen the warnin' sign "Dangerous Curves Ahead" 
before enterin' the arena with me, darlin'. *wink* -- Miss Fortune

Lilac Lemur & Animal Farm -- Apology accepted.  We believe it was simply as the Gods 
wanted it, and hold no ill will toward you.  Good luck on the sands. -- Keyoke, mgr. 
Beyond the Wall

Cerebus -- Yes!  A pig indeed! *smiles*  Even though I'm not a pig; I understand you.  
Well, if you ever decide to re-open one of your teams and you do find out your old DM 
#s, let me know, because I currently run 11 teams.  I'm probably crazy for doing it, 
but D2 is and has become an entertaining hobby of mine. *smiles*  I carefully budget 
my money for now. lol -- Scorpio *clicking his pen*

Alright,  new riddle:  The person who makes it, sells it.  The person who buys it 
never uses it, and the person who uses it, doesn't know they are.  What is it?

Dauked Malek!  A lot is expected of you for the Scorpions, so don't let us down. -- 
Scorpio *sipping on some bourbon*

Miss Fortune -- Mmm, mmm, damn woman!  I don't mind losing to a beautiful fox like 
you.  Thanks for teaching me a skill or three. -- Dauked *limping back towards the 
Scorpions' stable*

Buzz -- Stick to the Rookies, little boy. -- Rosie *blowing a kiss*

Congrats again, Opus! -- Cerebus

I won a fight?  *falls over in shock* -- Jaka, overheard at the Bulldog Inn

White Worm -- Not cool. -- Cerebus
