                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Holy cow! (Yeah, I know.) But what else can I say? Who would have thought I would 
be Duelmaster? Not today. Not any day. I am, by far, the pudliest of The Bulldogs, and 
it is not as though we have a very super-duper team, you know? I have to say we do 
have a very nice Manager, and using The Bulldog Inn and its fine underground training 
facilities makes things better. Kennelworth is a generous old soul. But The Commission 
keeps sending him us dregs for recruits.
     One of the things I enjoy most in Aruak City is the "battle" and seemingly hatred 
of Purple People Eater and his Colorifics for Animal Farm and Mino. What's that all 
about? Where did it come from? I don't know, but it surely is fun to watch! I think it 
has earned PPE the dislike of everyone in here. That, and his arrogant ways. What a 
Bum!
     I'd like to say, "see you next time" but that would be a very, very iffy 
proposition. So, rather, I shall say "good luck and good chewin'".

                                          -- Cud, Surprise Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at SOOSIANS left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by COLORIFIC.  Good show!  Say what you will 
about blind luck and dirty fighting, but ANIMAL FARM will tell you 1575-811-62 is 
nothing to laugh at...  BEYOND THE WALL had cause to celebrate, after SLYMENSTRA got 
23 points by beating MINDY LOU WHO.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
SLYMENSTRA was winsome, after beating MINDY LOU WHO and seeing her lose 12 points.  
Now I can't insult LLAMA TURNER, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great 
new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in ARUAK 
CITY is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are ARUAK CITY's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of AARDVARK & CO. should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SCORPIONS, so did that 
sorry team shy from AARDVARK & CO.  If challenges were horses, DUCK ROGERS could open 
up a fast food joint!  SEARCH DOG challenged DUCK ROGERS!  Who says BULLDOGS are just 
a bunch of wimps!  SEARCH DOG of BULLDOGS kept hers wits as she overcame DUCK ROGERS. 
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

What!? That Bimbo Miss Fortune killed my Pink Eye?! Your axx is grass, Miss Furtune. 
Not that Pink Eye was much, the Loser. (8-6-15-1616-9-14 SL poor/great) But she was 
MINE! You will rue the day that you met up with Colorific, Miss Fortune. -- Purple 
People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

I am proud of my four Colorifics, who went 3-1-1. Well, except for Red Lip who got a 
bloody lip.) Nice kill, Yellow Belly! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Jaka, you were easy. You look sick or something. -- Black Plague, Proud Colorific

Chorlyndyr, ho hum. -- Green Horn, Proud Colorific

Persistent Beggar, go beg in The Hot Spot, scumbag! -- Yellow Belly, Proud Colorific

Suenteus Po, you musta cheated. Who do you know in The Commission, cheater! -- Red 
Lip, Proud Colorific

A 3-2-1-1? What kind of numbers are those? Good or bad? Good, I say. -- Missy, Agent, 
Promoter, Publicist, PPE Assistant and Proud Colorific

Bloody Cud be champeen! -- Mino (Raising his ale to the new Duelmaster)

We critters are proud to announce our very difficult 1-1, with two warriors at The FTF 
and one recruit in waiting. Watch out for us soon. -- The Animal Farm Publicist

Mindy Lou Who, I bow to your superiority. A Soosian a day surely hurts my play! -- 
Blue Burro (hee-hawing in pain)

Userous Merchant, get a spout! -- Navy Narwhale

Congratulations to our own Cud, Duelmaster of The Heart And Soul Of Andoria. 
Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Toucan Sam, what a tough, tough old bird you are! -- Cud

Rat In A Hat, you and your skill and your style are just too much for this pooch. 
(sigh) -- Search Dog

Callamytie, I came to save the day. Underdog was here. -- Underdog

I surely hope I didn't die at The FTF and I can come back here dancing with honors. I 
do. -- Wah-Watusi

Health. Humility. Honor. -- Kennelworth

P.P.E., Colorific -- You have our condolences and sincerest apologies for the 
unfortunate loss of your warriors.  We assure you it was not our intent to kill them. 
-- Keyoke, mgr. Beyond the Wall

Dauked Malek -- You lack stamina. *BURP*  Bwahahaha. -- Rumblegut

Underdog -- Aww, no fair, I've always been a softy for puppies!  You're welcome. -- 
Callamytie

Cerebus -- I hope you know I BELIEVE that I never meant to kill anyone from your team.  
KD was a 6 the whole time. -- Scorpio

Keyoke -- I noticed you haven't been running your team in Sunset.  Is everything ok?  
If you like, come visit me in 60 or 25. *smiles* -- Scorpio

Scrooge McDuck -- Dude, I bet the personalized statements are pretty cool.  I sent 
mine in TWICE! over 5 months ago, and *still* they're not on my characters. *frowns* 
-- Scorpio
P.S.  Woodsy Owl lost some hellafied pts against Duck Rogers--lol.  Nice fight.

     I think that's my fault.  I need to clean my desk! -- Ed.

Keyoke -- GoreGore & Toytles? -- Scorpio

Cerebus -- I have my very first warrior in AD.  Her name is Long-n-Slim.  Say hi to 
her sometime. *smiles*  Also, if you want to ally up in AD, let me know. -- Scorpio

Kennelworth -- You shouldn't be calling the kettle black.  You've done some pretty 
shady crap in your time.  Like for instance, running more than ONE team in an arena... 
one team cuts for a team, the other walks all over her.  Not cool at all, Consortium.  
*And* killing newbies in Noblish, had to add that in as you killed two of my best.  
Forgiven, but NEVER forgotten. -- Scorpio

     Please note that when some of the old small arenas were closed, we invited the 
     managers from those arenas to move their teams an active arena, even if they had 
     a team there, with a limit of three teams in any arena.  While the intent was 
     that most of those extra teams would eventually be retired, this was not a 
     requirement; some managers were quite fond of those teams and have kept running 
     them.  It should not be considered any fault of those managers that they have an 
     extra team or two because of this situation.  

     Your other complaints are between the two of you. -- Ed

Scorpio -- Too easy this week!  Corn on the cob.

Chorlyndyr -- Apology accepted... but don't do it again.  See what you get for killing 
Normalroach:  You make it to the least popular list the next week. -- Cerebus

Twiceler -- Wow, close fight.  You are a very good teacher, too!  Have a great 
career--but not against me please, lol. -- Astoria

Red Lip -- You were winning!  Train con, sweetheart. -- S. Po

Black Plague -- Everyone should avoid the Black Plague... It never crossed my mind 
'til you challenged me, of course, but it only makes sense.  After all, you killed 1/3 
of all Europe in the middle ages.  Anyway, I am a good teacher, at least. -- Jaka, as 
a side note while getting treated for exposure to plague

I hope you all enjoy meeting Moonroach and Duke Leonardi... -- Cerebus

Scorpio -- Here's one back atcha:  "I have an eye, but can't see.  I am stronger and 
faster than any man alive, yet have neither arms nor legs.  What am I?"
