                             Notes from the arena champ.

I figured I would write a little somethin somethin so I don't get ridiculed for being 
a mute.  It's good to come off of a hiatus and claim the throne and graduate.  My 
numbers were pretty basic.. 12-10-7-17(1)-17-11-11 master ini/att, ad ex def, exp 
dec/rip, vh/h, lunge/dodge, learns att, SS fav.  I didn't make a challenge this turn as 
I hope my comrade will take my spot on the throne.  Caveman Jack is off to the DA, his 
good damage is just unacceptable... 17-9-11-17-9-14-7 BA.  I hope the RUG's are kind 
and in a generous mood cause we Jacks are mediocre at best.  Well I guess I've rambled 
on enough, so peace out brown trout. 

                                     -Jack Rock-

                                      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 D.C.I. left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by FORCE OF FIVE.  Good show!  CRACKED REAR 
VIEW after a sorry 2-3-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up 
singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a team like victory 
(How's that for a perceptive observation?) as D.R.I. can attest...  Good things come 
to those who fight well, as BEN'S BAZAAR can attest, moving up by 6.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 16 points to 
ZURGO AXELORD.  (Discrete enough, TIMOTH?) JACK ROCK found out being SUNSET's 
Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 6 challenges!  The arena was more 
crowded than usual this time, as BABY BAB faced SUNSET's Duelmaster.  JACK ROCK 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by BABY BAB of CRACKED REAR VIEW.  Does 
SUNSET have no one talented enough to dethrone it?  So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in BEN'S BAZAAR are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of BEN'S BAZAAR found their efforts at combat frustrated as CRACKED REAR 
VIEW apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Them's the breaks, CINDY 
BOY.  Expecting fair challenges from D.R.I. is evidently too much to ask.  FATMAN'S 
WAR FACE bested CINDY BOY.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  Do my ears 
deceive me?  EMOTIKHAN (outclassed by 27 points) challenged MEGARO HARA, in what 
promises to be a fight.(!) It's not whether you win or lose, but how many points you 
get (2).  Right, EMOTIKHAN?  PERICLES challenged -10 ATTACK!  Who says BLOOD AND SAND 
are just a bunch of wimps!  PERICLES of BLOOD AND SAND kept his wits as he defeated 
-10 ATTACK.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Citizens of SUNSET, be sure to settle your debts with CAVEMAN JACK of ALL JACKED UP 
II.  It's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on its mind!  Charity is 
unknown in SUNSET, and rightly so.  BIG LAKE TERROR exacted their revenge against 
D.C.I..  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  SUNSET, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Wildlife 
Unlimited.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Den -- Still quiet.  Well happy day.  It can't be that you've given up.  No.  Never.  
I know!  It's that drudgery, that horrible drawn out distance that a thought must take 
before you can semi-articulate it by grunting it through all of that nostril hair.  
Maybe your reflection finally got the nerve to get up and walk away and not worry 
about hurting your feelings and quit hiding its revulsion, and you remain a bit 
stunned?  Is that it?  You in there, buddy?  Helloooo? -- Manta XOXO 

Sundowner -- If you had taught me anything I would look for a rematch. -- Artichoke 
Head

Random..... But still banal. -- Edulfo Papa

DM/LP Jack Rock, and LP's Dark Pleasure and -10 Attack -- Escape.  Survival. 
Immortality.  Congrats, especially to -10 Attack.  Dare we say there has never been a 
warrior (or a manager) quite like you and yours to make it to the finish line.  
Stamina and perseverance, an extremely hard head and gluttony for punishment were all 
obviously big factors!  Thus we drink you tonight at the Broken Bone!  Blades UP!! -- 
Grim Fandango

D.C.I. and Force of Five -- Off to good starts to say the least...the three-turns look 
pretty daunting.  But it can't last forever... -- Grim Fandango

All Jacked Up II -- What up, welcome back to the fray!  Way to swoop in and take the 
throne ambush-style, then just up and graduate post-haste!  What just happened?!?? -- 
Stik and G.F.

Cereal Killers -- Good to see you back in action...I think. -- Stik

Crip and Real Beer -- You too, though I doubt it'll last long! -- Stik

All -- Looks like some banner tourney results for our little island arena this fall!  
Gonna be lots of hidden FE lurkin' around this winter... I'll wait 'til they post in 
the newsletter to send out congrats, but you know who you are. Well played!! -- Stik

Manta -- You, sir, are a wordsmith, a not-so-gentleman and a scholar.  At least when 
it comes to sticking it to den (litte d, definitely not a big D!).  I appreciate the 
kind words of support and not just sitting on the sidelines watching the show.  Same 
for the Consortium.  I think I'll try to lay off the insults though, it's not my 
strong suit, and just watch a master at work!  Backing it all up with wins and kills 
against said purveyors of douchebaggery is what we all need to strive for.  Good 
hunting!! -- Stik

Dark Pleasure -- You dodged my challenge last turn.  Ben got to you first, and your 
water boy Torment was obviously trying to run interference.  Your manager didn't 
really think that pile of crap could beat me now, did he?  You can have your faves 
knowledge and immortality, I'll put my TV up against it any day.  Hopefully today, and 
you make the trip to the Isle in a body bag. -- Harbinger

Sugar Smack -- Smacked indeed...that hurt.  A lot. -- Blakend

Songe -- I enjoyed that.  Immensely. -- Maliss

Beechnut -- Sorry to burst your bubble, my friend, but...  Ok, after that horrible 
pun, it doesn't matter what I say after it! -- Nevernot

Meiritsu Dai -- Thanks for the welcome to the sands.  Don't give up your day job... -- 
Syff

Correction -- That first ad should've read 'we drink TO you tonight.'  Maybe we 
started a little early... -- Grim Fandango

Welcome back Jack! -- Nomad

It seems the Fandangos have returned from the tourney with a couple of TVs in tow.  I 
wonder who they will use those challenges on?  

Arti Head -- Yeah that challenge probably didn't go the way you expected, did it?  I 
wish I knew how I did that.  I kinda like to do that in other fights as well. -- 
Sundowner

Grats to all the grads. -- Nomad

-10 Attack -- Man, I thought I was old!  You were close to becoming number 6, but you 
squeaked by.  Congrats on your invite.  Enjoy retirement.  -- Timoth

Inkhantinent -- Sadly, you lack strength to use your weapon, and apparently, to hold 
your bladder. -- Gwenhyvar

Shere Khan -- Oooohh oooh ohhh, almost had it.... -- Brunhilda

Scout -- I know my armor hugs me just right, but why is everyone always attacking my 
buttocks? -- Imperia

Blue Devil -- Oh poor Gurgi, many slashings and swingings and Blue Devil will not fall 
down, oh poor Gurgi! -- Gurgi

Manta -- I know it must get lonely with your only entertainment running around your 
hovel playing with your "manta-ray".  Just to point out the obvious, you have now used 
the word "troglodyte" in two different arenas, what, did mom buy you a new Dungeon 
Master's book and you learned a new word?  I suppose it is sitting on the bookshelf 
with your treasured Janet Reno lingerie calendar.  Try to keep up, sonny, the world 
could use some humor. -- Den

Jack -- You were missing?  Huh, nobody noticed. -- Den

Consortium -- I see you are still looking for friends, essentially why you and Little 
Stick are such a harmonious match.  Can't imagine what the kids will look like, but at 
least maybe you will leave the neighborhood kids alone finally. -- Den

Stickless -- Maybe you are not understanding the entire goal of this challenge, it is 
to get you to field a team in Niytyole and watch you eat a little humble pie, which is 
delicious this time of year.  You like to talk tough about my average record there, I 
simply want to see you do better, and not even under the same circumstances as me.  
You see, there are teams there that will actually help you get above 50% just to see 
me lose the bet, can you ask for better odds than that?  So, yes, you can spread out 
the 15 missing fights however you want, I just don't want you running three godings 
every round and leaving the other two at home.  The 15-missing fight limit eliminates 
that scam.  Of course, you are encouraged to fight the four tournaments during the 26-
turn challenge, everyone else will, and I know you are not overly smart, but fighting 
them is something considered "smart". And no, I am not going to deposit $419.50 into 
your account so you can go and run one of your other garbage teams in an arena that 
has nothing to do with the challenge.  For the following 26 turns in Niytyole that you 
fight, I will ask RSI to charge that turn to my account, as well as the next four 
tournaments, providing of course you can manage one fight over 50%.  This is a 
challenge to get your big mouth into Niytyole which adds additional flavor to my home 
arena.  Chances are you will drop out once you realize the 50% expectation is too hard 
to achieve, but people get lucky, just ask all the guys that work with your mom.  But 
at least you will be there and it will be fun for a while, and who knows, maybe you 
will succeed and then you get to stick around (forgive the pun) for another year with 
my compliments.  I believe I am being exceedingly fair by not even asking for anything 
from you once you lose, so feel free to accept or not accept.  If you don't accept you 
know I will bring up your cowardice at every opportunity. -- Den

    Den and Stik -- With other similar challenges, this is what we have done:  At the 
    start of the contest, all monies are placed in an "escrow" RSI account.  When the 
    contest ends, they are distributed according to the contest.  In this case, if 
    Stik wins, the funds would be used only for his DM 33 (the "cleanest" way to do 
    this is to transfer Stik's team to the escrow account for one year, thus ensuring 
    that only his DM 33 team and their tournament fights would be paid for with the 
    contest money).  At the end of one year, the escrow account is closed, Stik's team 
    transfers back to him, and any remaining funds are returned to Den.  If Den wins, 
    all funds are returned to him.  We're open to suggestions. -- RSI 

Little Stick -- Pizza parties are timeless.  The only people who don't believe that 
are those with no friends or money, of which you are guilty. -- Den

Gentile Ben -- Dark Pleasure's win was my favorite of the entire week.  I stopped 
people on the street to tell them how awesome it was and I was amazed by how many 
people had already heard about it.  Feels good to see that crazy little slasher going 
out on top. -- Den
