                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow!  Me?!  I'm Duelmaster?  Really?  But I am just a worthless old mutt.  You 
know?  One of those mongrel bow wows.  A bone burrier.  A cat chaser.  I like to catch 
sticks and Frisbees, but I never would have thought I would be chasing a crown.  But 
I'll take it!  I will.
     You think I'm good?  Guess what my record was in my only tournament, the 
Initiates?  A duelmasterlike 0-3!  Yes!
     But I'm changed from where I started.  Eight extra stats.  Lots more skills.  I 
am now a meaningful motley mutt!
     So come and get me.  The throne is open.  I promise to only avoid those I don't 
want to fight. (wink)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARUAK CITY.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, BULLDOGS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought FOUR CORNERS was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, BREWSTER'S BROOD's 4th moved them up to 4-1-1 place.  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for FLAGRANT FOWL's outstanding member, Duelmaster OPUS.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  ARUAK 
CITY thinks AARDVARK & CO. and their 564-349-30 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at ANIMAL FARM couldn't face the challenges from 
AARDVARK & CO.!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, GREEN HORN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  FOGHORN LEGHORN of FLAGRANT FOWL knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged CUD of 
BULLDOGS who is up by 21.  Now was this a wise move?  FOGHORN LEGHORN perhaps got his 
just desserts, seeing as he won victory over CUD and ended up with 90 recognition 
points.   
     Warriors of ARUAK CITY unite.  You have only your games to lose!  KNEEDLINYA, 
with hers forgettable 9-8-0,  was put to death by LILAC LEMUR in a forgettable match. 
BEYOND THE WALL didn't seem to mind very much.  Here's some advice:  study your 
opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ARUAK CITY is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Cerebus -- What is a Strategicon?  Do they still have them now? -- Scorpio

Wah-Watusi -- Nice way to learn some skills.  You roach! -- Kyria

Har, har. Cerebus, you ask? "Colorific -- Where's the rest of your team?  Why only 3 
warriors?"  Silly you.  Why, I try to run fewer in order to keep from killing too many 
Aardvarks.  Har, har.  That's the Andorian way; right? -- Purple People Eater, Proud 
Colorific Manager

John Asazi, I'm not really green, but you are really easy. -- Greenhorn, Proud 
Colorific

Mrs. Thatcher, well, lah, ti, dah.  Dead!  I told you, PPE, women like that belong 
barefoot and in the kitchen.  I think I just left on a bloody high note.  Yeah! -- LP 
Red Face, retired DM and Proud Colorific

Thanks, Old Harold Anne.  Got rid of that worthless twerp, Yellow Tooth.  Now I can 
recruit a real warrior for the team. -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Congratulations to Bulldog's own Mutt, Duelmaster of Aruak City.  Duelmasters drink 
free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth

Gee!  Killing abounds, it seems.  A salute to Mrs. Thatcher and Yellow Teeth.  May 
they fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky, -- Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

Kim O. Sabi, two lucky wins in a row.  Thanks. -- Cud

Veteran Mercenary, thanks for the match.  I was lucky, lucky, lucky to fall into the 
Duelmasters match and win. -- Mutt (stunned and elated)

Ghost Town Gus, that's twice you did that to me.  Leave me alone to my searching, you 
hear? -- Search Dog

Yancy Donne, I really do hate what you did to me.  It hurt. -- Underdog

Embezzling Scribe, I am glad to see you cannot fight. (wink) -- Wah-Watusi

Health. Humility. Honor. Aruak City, The Heart And Soul of Andoria awaits us all. -- 
Kennelworth

Yo ho ho!  Bloody fine 2-1 me critters done. Aye. Luv me critters. -- Mino

Navy Narwhale will join us soon, as soon as her Mailer results can be assessed.  
Animal Farm has high hopes for the whale. -- The Animal Farm Scribe and Publicist

Persistent Beggar, thanks for giving me a fine start here in Aruak City. Thanks loads. 
-- Blue Burro

Good bye, all.  It was fun and I am done. -- Fuschsia Frog, retired

Khalhums Dwarf, you sure made my life miserable, you brute. -- Lilac Lemur

Jaka, I am surprised. I thought your style might be difficult for me.  Maybe I am 
better than I thought? -- Walnut Watusi

Note to all: Our AF hackers have been able to infiltrate the Colorific record base and 
have determined that the recently killed (Yay!) Yellow Tooth was an 11-10-14-17-17-8-7 
great damage slasher.  We send our facetious condolences to PPE! (Big smiley) -- The 
Animal Farm Scribe and Publicist

Cerebus -- Good job!!  A piano it is!! *smiles*  You better have not gone online and 
cheated. lol -- Scorpio

Riddle Me This -- My first is twice apple but only once in tort.  My second is in 
liver but not in heart.  My third is in giant and also in ghost.  Whole I'm best, when 
I am roast.  What am I? -- Scorpio

Gore Gore -- If you've feeling froggy, and went to bring the sauce, then don't be mad 
if you're put down and disassembled and made no more.  Mess with THIS duck, mess with 
a soldier. -- Gunnery Sgt Duck Rogers of the 34th Infantry

Callamytic -- In this field lady, people or 'things' can get destroyed, so tread 
carefully I warn you. -- Duck Rogers *nodding ever-so-slightly*

Cerebus -- Have you though of re-activating some of your old teams? -- Scorpio 
*getting ready to knock back some bourbon*

Purple People Eater -- Oops!  Not your day is it? -- Scorpio *holding back a well 
deserved laugh*

Four Corners -- What an unfortunate turn of events.  The infirmary just isn't what it 
used to be.  You have our condolences.  Brix stands ready to face whatever challenges 
you deem necessary. -- Keyoke, mgr Beyond the Wall

Normal Roach -- Bad Kitty! *squirts with spray bottle* -- Toytles

Lane Terraza -- The sands are no place for those who belong in the stands. -- 
Kneedlinya

Fussy Hippock -- Ankles and elbows, weak points on the Shewish people?  Noted. -- 
Gorgore

Suenteus Po -- Gorgore was right, the Zoo is fun!  Who knew youd see so much blood? -- 
Callamytie

Folks, I am leaving Duel II for personal reasons.  I have no idea whether I may 
return, but don't count on it.  I will remain active in Lapur (29) and Jade Mountain 
(75), and that's it.  I have enjoyed knowing you.  Fare you well. -- Jorja

Red Face -- Now that was just rude, killing Mrs. Thatcher on your last day in Aruak... 
she didn't even get a line in the list of the dead because of your ascendance... how 
sad... but I'm glad I don't have to revenge her as I've got no one in your class... 
yet.  Enjoy your immortality! -- Cerebus

Walnut Watusi -- Thanks for teaching me the dance. -- Jaka (on waking up in the 
infirmary)

Calamytie -- You are aptly named... as you were nearly that for me. -- S. Po

Toytles -- I was lucky, I think... thanks for putting up a good defense. -- 
Normalroach

Monna Kopey -- That seemed a little one-sided.  Better luck next time, hon. -- Lord 
Julius

Wecome to the team, Cirin. -- Cerebus, who has little hope for the new b-tch

Toytles -- Yeah, Cerebus made me train for a change. -- Lord Julius

                   SEAM (DM 20) REOPENS AS A NEW NO-TOURNEY ARENA!

Seam (DM 20) will be re-opening soon as a no-tourney DM arena!  If you enjoy arena 
play without tournament interference, this arena is for you!  Only rookie teams may 
enter this arena, and all managers must sign the "no-tourney" pledge.  Turn 0 is due 
on May 4 (overviews only) and Turn 1 is due on May 18.  

To avoid confusion, all old inactive teams which were in Seam have travelled to 
Mazgourrah (DM 77). 

Seam is the newest arena to join the no-tourney group of arenas and will process on 
opposite weeks with Shadowspire (DM 81), the original no-tourney arena.  Other no-
tourney arenas include Telorinthe (DM 83), a slow arena, and Storm Rock (DM 107), for 
ADM warriors.  

Join in the fun!  Send in your new rollup along with the pledge soon so you can get in 
on the ground floor of this new arena!
