     "Name?"  Baby Bab was a bit irritated.  She wanted to get back to the party but 
was stuck interviewing the green recruit.
     "Yucky!"  The gentleman standing on the porch was earnest in his response.  Babs 
looked down on him.  But then, she looked down on everyone.
     "Pardon?"
     "The name is Yucky!"
     "Look, kid, see the sign here?  You speak Alastarian?  You read Alastarian?  The 
sign clear says, 'Palindromes ONLY'.  Quit wasting my time, I have a party to go back 
to."  She moved to close the door.
     "Wait," he replied, sticking his foot into the door at significant risk to his 
personal well-being.  "My real name is 'Poop'.  The Commission stuck me with Yucky! 
because of various clearly defined policies from which they never deviate."
     "What?"
     "'Poop!'"
     "Seriously?"
     "Seriously."
     "Well...." she said grudgingly, "that's a palindrome."
     "Poop!" he agreed enthusiastically.
     "Ok, come on in.  We're actually having a party of some of the more famous 
warriors across Alastari.  Don't be a, well, Poop-head and piss anyone off.  It would 
reflect badly on the guild."
     "Fantastic," he replied.
     He wandered in and made his way over to one of the bars.
     The bartender spit into a glass, rubbed it out and eyed him.  "What'll it be?"
     "A 'slippery nipple' please."
     "Coming right up."
     Poop looked around at a group of warriors sitting next to him at the bar.  "I bid 
you good day!  My name is Yucky!  What might your names be?"
     The group of gentlemen looked at him, then at each other, and grinned.  The 
apparent leader spoke up.  "My name is 'Strap On'.  Pleased to meet you."  Strap On 
extended his hand.
     "Pardon?"
     "Strap On."  The hand remained outstretched.  Poop reached out and shook it.  
"That's also your arena name?"
     "Yup."
     Poop decided to push it aside and shook the hand of the next gent.
     "Poop," he greeted the gent.
     "No $hit Sherlock, sir.  Pleased to meet you."
     "Pardon?"
     "No $hit Sherlock."
     "Seriously?"  Poop looked around, wondering if someone was yanking his chain.
     "No $hit," No $hit Sherlock replied.
     Poop decided to move along before he got the wrong idea and stepped backwards, as 
it happened, right into someone else who was approaching the bar.  The glass in the 
wiry gent's hand dropped to the floor and shattered.
     "Your pardon, good sir," Poop apologized profusely.  "I didn't mean to bump into 
you.  Please, allow me to replace the glass and refresh the drink!"
     "You are too kind!"
     "I'm Poop!  Whom do I have the honor of addressing?"
     "A pleasure to make your acquaintance.  My name is "Lion My A$$ Off."
     Poop looked around.  Somehow, someone was trying to get his goat.  Well, he 
decided, after bowing to the new warrior while making both reparations and his way to 
another group of likely fighters, he wouldn't let it get to him.
     "I bid you good day!" he said to the new group of men and women.  As one, they 
turned and smiled in greeting.
     "I'm Poop!  Whom do I have the honor of addressing?"
     "Good day, Poop!" replied the woman closest to him.  "I'm Flo.  Allow me to 
introduce the lords Burning Sensation and Jurine Ate.  We're from team Jurine Trouble 
over in the city of Jurine."
     "I beg your pardon, please excuse me."  Poop staggered away, the beginnings of 
red dots flaring in his eyes signaling the approach of the headache.  He needed to sit 
down before he lost all control.  Blindly he found his way to a couch and sat, head in 
his hands, rocking back and forth.
     "Are you ok?" a kind voice inquired, with a light touch on his back as he sat on 
the couch.
     He gasped, trying to get his emotions under control.  The touch was kind and 
obviously the woman was concerned for him.  He took a deep breath, forcefully exhaled 
and turned to her after rubbing the palms of his hands in his eyes.
     "Apologies, I'm just not reacting well to something at the moment.  A pleasure to 
meet you.  I'm Poop."
     "Poop?" she replied, a frown furrowing her brow.
     He sat back uneasily, the scene somewhat reminiscent of the Gladitorial 
Commission interview.  "Yes, 'Poop'.  Is there a problem?"
     "Not at all, I think we shall get along famously!  My name is $hit Storm.  And 
these are my teammates, Diaper Bomb, Shart, Poo Poo Splatter and Super Colon Blow.   
We're looking to start in Sunset soon."
     Poop sat back, realizing that at long last, he felt welcome in this city.
     "Pray, what stable do you belong to, that I may look you up once you are settled?  
I am confident we will have countless hours of fruitful conversations!"  Poop looked 
at $hit Storm expectantly.
     "Why, 'Fecal Fury' of course!"

No One Else Will Have Us

     He could not recall if he had ever been to Sunset Arena, at any time, for any 
reason, many long years ago.  But here he was now, drinking in all the spectacle and 
hoopla of the Turn 800 festivities in and around Sunset Arena.  He had not really 
considered gathering a Stable full of Warriors to fight in Sunset Arena, but the lure 
of a thriving, active Arena, had gotten his attention.  So many other Alastari Arenas, 
that he had passed by in his travels, seemed to be dead or dying.  A select few had 
piqued his interest, but he chose to move on and keep looking, not quite sure what 
type of Arena he was halfheartedly seeking?
     Watching the assorted Sunset arena warriors battling on the Sunset Arena sands 
had stirred old memories deep within him; so the battle-wizened traveler decided to 
pass by the Warrior Training Pens, before moving on to some other potential arena that 
Alastari had to offer.  He noticed a large group of Half-Elves that were shunned and 
overlooked by the other Sunset arena managers.  They did not look like much, but 
perhaps they had some type of hidden potential, that could serve some sort of purpose, 
that might be put to good use in Sunset arena?
     One of the warriors caught his eye, then came towards him, hesitating to speak, 
but hopeful.
     "Are you a seasoned manager?" asked the warrior.
     "I am well-seasoned and trail-worn," came the reply, "but it has been long years 
ago since I even considered managing a Stable of Warriors."
     "No one else will have us," came the downcast response.
     "Keep training," he replied with a bit of compassion in his voice.  "I have been 
traveling and adventuring for many long years, far beyond the arenas of this world."  
He could see a spark of hope in the eyes of all the outcast Half-Elf warriors that had 
also drawn near to him.
     "Keep training," he murmured, almost absent mindedly. "I will consider managing a 
stable in Sunset arena."  He shook their hands, assessing the raw potential of each 
hopeful warrior, before wandering off aimlessly, lost in thought.
     A few hours later, the trail-worn traveler found himself standing at the desk of 
the Sunset Arena Gladiatorial Commission, not quite sure if this was the arena where 
he should consider activating a new stable of warriors, but he had become quite weary 
of searching.  After a few moments, the trail-worn traveler had signed the necessary 
papers to activate a new stable of warriors in Sunset arena.
     The clerk looked on curiously, as the traveler tossed a few gold coins on the 
desk, before signing on the bottom line.  He stared at the paper, then stared at the 
newly-registered, battle-wizened manager, then back to the signature:

                             Notes from the arena champ.

DM Column - Arena 21

Amy: Shelly you HAVE to.
Sheldon: But I DON'T want to write a DM column!
Amy: It's expected!
Sheldon: These people don't deserve my presence, let alone a column from me.
Amy: Shelly stop that or you're gonna lose fans.
Sheldon: Fans? Shesh compared to these people I'm a god! I grace them with my presence every two weeks. You'd think that'd be all I had to do. I          am WAY better than them at fighting, let alone WAY smarter!
Amy: Sheldon Cooper you write that column or you're not watching Firefly reruns this week!
Sheldon: Fine! Dear Sunset, I'm way better than you. The End!
Amy: Sheldon!...(to be continued, maybe)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SUNSET!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too 
little dodging gave PHILTHBALLS a 1-4-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  What's with 
ZURGO AXELORD?  He actually beat CRACKED REAR VIEW's DENNIS SINNED, and walked away 
with 21 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at CRACKED REAR VIEW.  DENNIS 
SINNED lost 18 points to ZURGO AXELORD.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DENNIS 
SINNED will provide more easy wins...  BEN'S BAZAAR's hatred of BIG BANG THEORY 
surfaced again as HIS ROYAL HALNESS challenged SUNSET's top dog.  Try as he might, 
HIS ROYAL HALNESS wasn't good enough at persuading SHELDON to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BEN'S BAZAAR! 
The bums at CRACKED REAR VIEW couldn't face the challenges from BEN'S BAZAAR!  No 
excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
MASON SPIKE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  MASON SPIKE 
expects the easy win by going 24 points down.  BLAKEND will find this a hard lesson!  
MASON SPIKE's gonna be practicin' hard this week, after BLAKEND, lower ranked by far, 
mashed him!  Taunt your opponent RED ANTHEM!  That was my lucky charm when I was 
unfairly challenged.  (and by 16 points!)  DARK TORMENT should have an easy win.  
DARK TORMENT bested RED ANTHEM.  I bet DARK TORMENT could beat two-year-olds, too.  
Well, GRIM FANDANGO knows who to set their sights on.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if ROOKIE 
RECRUIT can return from the Dark Arena.  Someone told SONGE THE RUGRAT that NOMADIC 
TRIBE never Bloodfeuded, that she'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled 
you is right sorry.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day? 
To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
SUNSET 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

All Sunset Arena Managers and Warriors:  Time to get acquainted with a few of my Bible 
Verses! -- FaithWalker, the Manager of Bible Verses

Sunset Warriors -- I am here to liveby the Law of the Spirit of Life, until my Death 
or Graduation! -- Romans 8:2 of Bible Verses

Sunset Warriors -- I am here to liveby Faith, until I either Graduate or Die! -- 
Galatians 2:20 ofBible Verses

Sunset Warriors -- I am here to spread Good Tidings and Skills among you, until my 
Death or Graduation! -- Isaiah 61:1 of Bible Verses

Sunset Warriors -- I am here to Not Lean On My Own Understanding, until I either 
Graduate or Die! -- Proverbs 3:5 of Bible Verses

Sunset Warriors -- I am here to Learn Skills and Forgiveness, until I either Die or 
Graduate! --Mark 11:25 of Bible Verses

All Sunset Arena Managers -- Looking forward to my Bible Verses crossing blades with a 
variety of your warriors, while making their mark, on the Sunset Arena Sands! -- Faith 
Walker, the Manager of Bible Verses

I'm not even sure when the last time I saw an arena with just as many slashers as 
strikers.  And 3x as many slashers as Aimers.  What you smoking, Sunset?  Variety is 
the spice of life.

Howlsmack:  17-10-15-17-9-5-11 Basher.  Not terrible.  Not great.  Not alive.  The 
replacement was much worse.  I guess Songe the Rugrat knew what he was doing with that 
challenge.  Now we shall see if we know how to respond. -- Nomad and the Tribe

Yucky! -- Yep, yep, that is what it was.  Well said.  Yucky. -- Driftwood

Dennis Sinned -- How'd that happen?  I had that fight.  I think I need to work on my 
finish technique. -- Zurgo

And two new teams arrived.  Welcome to Space Opera and Bubblicious.  Interesting name 
for the Bubbly ones, but not much for results.  Stick around -- there is nowhere to go 
but up. -- Nomad and the Tribe

Space Opera and News Radio -- Welcome aboard.  Drinks on us down at the double-B 
tonight!  Looking forward to seeing you on the sands. -- Stik and Grim Fandango

Ben -- Nice 3-turn, looks oddly familiar... -- Stik

Nomad -- Hang in there, man! -- Stik

Den -- I seem to have completely overlooked your presence in Shadowspire!  I see 
you're winning plenty of respect and support there as well.  16th out of 18 teams with 
a W/L % of 43.3.  The domination continues...  I typically never rip anybody on their 
record in this game, it's hard to win consistently and we should be glad anybody's 
still playing outside of tourneys, but you brought it up, didn't you?  You should know 
better than to throw stones, living in that house. -- Stik

Plump Denny -- A little taste of your own down challenging medicine.  Enjoy. -- 
Blakend

Mita Kurai -- Could've gone better for you.  Your manager hasn't figured out that 
style mismatch thing yet?? -- Harbinger

Little Stick -- You are so precious when you attempt to act tough.  It will take me 
but a paragraph to prove what a galactic piece of ignorance you are.  You are so 
stupid that you attempt to act like you know something of the mighty Allied Axis, but 
you know nothing, because you are a dullard and knowing things is not your gift.  Only 
a dimwit like yourself would ever even consider that a fight between two Allied Axis 
members would be thrown.  Anyone with half a brain knows that the AA considers wins 
and kills against each other as the pinnacle of joy.  Trust me, little fella, we could 
really care less about wins against simple teams like yours, we covet that kill we get 
against each other, for that is true competition.  We could kill your team off with a 
dead chicken, a balloon, and a used tube of chapstick, so we don't much care about 
those kills or win.  And if anyone ever thinks of "good guys" and "class" when 
considering the mighty Allied Axis I would question their intellect, which I know is a 
skill beyond you.  You see, little fella, we don't act like something we are not, like 
you do, you pathetic attention-seeking loser.  And then you further your embarrassment 
by trying to talk about Niytyole Island (an arena you misspelled by the way, once 
again proving your immense incompetence).  You see, little fella, when I go into an 
arena I don't immediately embrace everyone and congratulate them on every little thing 
they do, like you do.  I don't attempt to become a member of the "Arena Back-Patting 
Club" like you do.  When I go into an arena I let everyone know what a piece of 
garbage they are.  And because I am not a major suck-up like you, I tend to have 
enemies.  In my beloved Niytyole I have fought for years against dozens of teams at 
any one time.  Entire alliances like the Demolition Coalition, Iron Council, GAPPDA, 
Number Crunching Alliance, Deep Water League, and to a lesser degree the Inner Circle.  
Out of 50 fights I will have 45+ challenge fights, because I am not a little crybaby 
like you.  Did you know that the Commission was actually going to change how wins were 
counted and a win against my team was going to count as two actual wins?  You see, 
beating me is not easy so they felt the lesser teams (like any that you run) should be 
adequately compensated, but decided that it was a huge insult to the lessor managers 
(like you).  Tell you what, big-talker, you bring a team to my beloved Niytyole with 
no pre-tourney experience and run them for a year.  If your record is over 50% I will 
pay for you to run them for the next year.  I know you are quick to embrace anything 

to get yourself noticed, like public lies and sad attempts to become relevant.  Well, 
here is your big opportunity.  Let's see it, crybaby. -- Den, High Priest of the 
mighty Allied Axis

Sheldon -- You are a paper champion.  Due to the Commission not bothering to check 
messages I did not get my fight sheet entered and thus you secured a throne that does 
not belong to you.  If you have any class, you will challenge me as I am challenging 
you. -- Dark Pleasure

Sprite -- When you have time to remove your head from Consortium's posterior I assume 
you will give me the shot at the throne. -- Den

Gentile Ben -- Once my Dark Pleasure sits the throne, we must see who manages the best 
slasher here in Sunset.  When I accept the victory I will race to your dirty stable 
and plant a foot in your biblical waistline. -- Den
