                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am brass.  (Not crass, brass.)  And, I am, indeed, a beagle.  (A dog, you know.  
But not like a Kennelworth Bulldog.  A real dog.)  I bark; I bite; I hide bones; I 
dump on lawns; I chase cats.  Aardvark chasing is fun, too.  What a life!  Mino is 
good to me, feeding me well and helping me find cats to chase.  (I think he is really 
making sure that I don't chase his possum and the boar around.)  He is also 
indoctrinating me to the art of chasing fowl -- especially the flagrant type.  It is 
harder than I thought!
     Part of my life, too, is this gladiatorial stuff.  I like it, I guess.  But I 
don't think it is quite canine enough for me.  Give me a good feline to chase, you 
know?  But I am part of a great team and I have to uphold my end of the Animal Farm 
tradition.  So I fight -- and bite.
     So, who's next?  I am ready.  Critters fight.  Dogs fight.  It will be fun -- I 
hope.

                                          -- Brass Beagle, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARUAK CITY games.  My praise to COLORIFIC for their 
3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  WARRIOR SIX caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested BORN and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, CIRINIST put down HOT DOG GAL, causing her to lose 15 
points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of WARRIOR 
THREE, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the 
city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in ARUAK CITY seem to feel 
that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARUAK CITY "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in ARUAK CITY these days is FLAGRANT FOWL.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of ANIMAL FARM are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after TOUCAN SAM.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My hearty congratulations BESTARIUS, for thy revenge upon RED 
SOPHIA, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time she will know better, eh?  Some say 
a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in 
hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

We've got a worthless dog and Animal Farm member as Duelmaster!?  What has Aruak City 
come to? Colorifics, get that dog!  We are the best.  Why aren't one of you on top? -- 
Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Hah!  Another 4-1!  Beat that, Mino!  Colorifics are best and I am the world's 
greatest manager. -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Uh, I hate to tell you, PPE, but Animal Farm went 4-0, and 9-0-1 for the last two 
rounds.  We, uh, need to be better. -- Colorific Publicist and Personal Assistant and 
Gofer

Quiet!!!!!!! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Zazu, I had chicken for dinner.  Bwahahahaha. -- Black Beard, Proud Colorific

Toucan Sam, I like birds.  Defeated birds.  Even dead birds.  Har har. -- Gold Tooth, 
Proud Colorific

Hot Dog Gal, you are sooooo easy.  I like easy women. -- Green Thumb, proud Colorific

White Hair wasn't that Khalhum's Dwarf you lost to? -- Copper Tone, Proud Colorific

Shhhhh, PPE might be listening! -- White Hair, Proud Colorific

Congratulation to Animal Farm's Brass Beagle, Duelmaster Of The Heart And Soul Of 
Andoria.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Scorpio, thanks for your comments and support.  It is probably better that I say 
little about the Den transgressions other than I cannot abide by our mutual data bases 
being purposefully fouled. -- Kennelworth

Bestarius, I am pleased that my final fight was with one of the best.  I may have 
lucked out a win, but I wish you the very best moving forward. -- Fido

Woodsy Owl, nice challenge; fine strategy; great win -- you meanie! -- Search Dog

Wow! Perhaps I just am not cut out for this fighting stuff.  I lost to both The 
Userous Merchant and Cult Member?  I need my six-shooter! -- Cowpoke (hanging his head 
in disgust with himself)

Get 'em next time, Cowpoke. -- Kennelworth

Convicted Assassin and Kung-Fu Master, thanks for the work outs and the wins. -- 
Bullwinkle and Ferdinand

Health. Humility. Honor. -- Kennelworth

Yo Ho Ho.  Proud 'o me critters.  Aye.  Yon 4-0.  Got me yer Duelmaster dog.  Aye. Luv 
me critters. -- Mino

Cerebus, thanks.  How nice of you to notice and comment.  I was so despaired after 
losing to Venomous Combine, but the Shewish Giant kill brought me back.  Your comments 
give me faith! -- Ruby Rattler

I am proud to be Duelmaster, but it seems so flimsy that it had to be with a win over 
a Convicted Assassin.  But I will take flimsy! -- Brass Beagle

All NPCs for us.  When do we get to fight those loud-mouth Colorifics? -- Blue Burro, 
Brandywine Boar, Pink Possum and Brass Beagle

Hi everybody!  Thanks for the warm reception on my return.  Not sure exactly why, but 
sometimes I drift away from the game for a bit.  After two pretty miserable turns, 
hopefully you are all extra happy that you have someone extra to beat up on!  At least 
I got another graduate in Toucan Sam. Pretty sweet slasher that I apparently had the 
favorite weapon totally wrong for his entire career.  It's apparently the Scimitar, 
even though he got very few crits with it early in his career... -- Lurch AKA Scrooge 
McDuck

Ferdinand -- Thanks for the welcome back! As the default "most seasoned warrior" at 
this point after the DA death of Foghorn Leghorn and the graduation of Toucan Sam, my 
goal is to not get beaten as much or as badly as you did that turn! -- Woodsy Owl

Only I have the crazy luck of returning after a long absence, only to lose twice, and 
then still graduate!  Out of here on a wing and a prayer. (Hardy-har-har) -- Toucan 
Sam 

Green Thumb -- Are you planting ferns behind that shield? -- Hot Dog Gal

Weisshaubt -- It is all about commitment, buddy. -- Teh Perforator

Barn -- ...*grumble* ... -- Awkward N. Shy

Copper Tone -- I sunbathe naked while reading. -- Colossal Babe

Jalta -- I don't give that away.  You'll have to earn it. -- Colassal Babe

Capt Cockroach -- Squish. -- Busty Wet-T
