     I usually reserve the Team Spotlight section for my fiction.  But I think this
belongs here as opposed to the personal ads.  It's a little long and I have to take a
jackass to the woodshed.
     Peggy Sue... Where did I say you were "some super secret megawarrior with all
sorts of hidden FE because otherwise you couldn't have killed my idiot slasher"?
Please show me where I said that.
     Don't worry.  I'll wait....
     That's right.  I never said it.  I said "The funny part is that his death was
the reason I didn't want to participate in the contest.  I know a lot of you guys are
better than your record lets on."
     Did you or that lead paint eating twit you call a manager stop to think that it
was a compliment?  I didn't expect you to kill Hush.  That is why I challenged you.
Anyway, nowhere in that statement did I say Peggy Sue was "some super secret
megawarrior with all sorts of hidden FE."  In fact, no one's name was listed in my
original statement.  Your sense of self-worth is over-inflated and misplaced.
     Do I need to break it down more?  I told the Hush to challenge you.  That means
I was afraid of everyone else in the arena BUT YOU.  You just got lucky.  Remember
the part where Hush was breaking down your defense?  He had your number except for
two lucky hits.  Your part of the fight was essentially closing your eyes and
flailing wildly.  Yeah, you got the kill and the win.  But it was luck.
     Thanks to your manager posting your stats, I see that I am right.  By the way,
if I thought you were some mega-warrior with a lot of FE, I would say it.  Even if I
role-played it, I would say it.
     I never said it was your fault that Hush died.  But your kill played a role in
my decision to make my break indefinite.  My reason for that is because the team
isn't that good; Mongo is 27 fights of terrible.  Marin is bad, and Water Rat's
replacement is so bad, I am considering sending him to the tourney in hopes he will
die and not affect the Lord's record.  Yeap.  He isn't worth the one loss from the
dark arena.  I had also planned on bowing out to show respect to your friend and not
disrupt your tourney.  Remember?
      So, next time you decide to read something back, first learn to read.

Sincerely,
Longshot

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The streak continues.  Will I lose?  Will I get an invite?
     Back to the weights, but increases are more difficult now.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MORYA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If Arthur's Last Stand is buying 
drinks for BIG LAKE PURE's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  
A 4-1-1 makes for a big thirst.  If this keeps up, MOST LEE, you'll have to shine 
swords instead of use them.  A drop of 9 in the rankings?  Gee, I'm impressed, a 
4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, COMIC STRIPS, the Fates teach humility, and the 
Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see LONGSHOREMAN win a 
fight and gain 29 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BIG GUT beat GORDONS and GORDONS lost 
14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, MORYA may 
be getting bland, as EYE BAGS stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, BLUE MOON was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to TODD MAYES of 
BIZARRO SQUAD for challenging up by 19 to BLUE MOON.  TODD MAYES lost to get 30 
points of recognition.  And we have VAUDRYN in a challenge, going down 10 points for 
the fight.  Guess what?  I thought VAUDRYN showed great skill and promise when he 
lost to PINK SHIRT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  TALISMAN, a glorious 
12-13-1 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad MAGICAL MADNESS.  And now a passing 
thought on a warrior dying young (THE LOVERS of PANDORA'S CARDS):  You had your 
chance and now you're dead.  Oh well...  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was 
HIGHWINE of BIG SHOTS this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have a 
belly laugh.  Heh heh.  The bigger they are, as they say.  And what I say is that 
LONGSHOREMAN had better watch out for MAGICAL MADNESS, seeing as TALISMAN felled he 
this turn.  Three down, and one turn to go for MEAN PEOPLE to call in the bloodfeud 
against FLO VALVE, else SWINDLER STANG is but small history.  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in MORYA to get a drink than Arthur's Last 
Stand!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Restrained Contempt -- I held my contempt in as long as I could... about 4 minutes.
-- Moonbow

Foolish Lee -- That was so frustrating.  Ah well, I will taste the sweet taste of
victory again! -- Rabid Rodent

     That sweet taste is probably corn syrup, which isn't good for you.  Insist
     on real honey.

Furiel -- Hmmm... Too bad I can't challenge you, you looked like an extra point to
me... -- Repulso

Wing Harper -- Beating one of your style in such a manner IS pleasing indeed. --

Deeders is popularity leader?  This must be some kind of mistake! -- Longshoreman of

Blue Moon -- You know, I just can't let that go.  I challenge you again. -- Todd
Mayes

Maybelline -- Um, you went down fast.  I could write out our whole fight within the
restrictions of these PAs. -- Casanova

All -- If anyone could send me the chart I asked for I may throw a fight so someone
can get a win against Bizarro Squad. -- Charlie Rankin *haha*

Qix -- A gentle dwarf would have allowed me to regain my footing.  You, sir, are not
of that ilk. -- Vicious Lee

Leonard Smalls -- Just a heads up, I have filed a formal complaint with the Truth In
Advertising Department. -- Eventural Lee

Receding Hair Line  --  With your moniker, you are already on the losing end in the
game of love. --  The Lovers

Maybe if I didn't take my guys out drinking, we would have won a few more fights. --
the Ringmaster of Juggalo Rydaz

Idiots... -- Dark Lotus

Freebooter -- Hey, did you see that?!  My girl punched your spear so hard it broke!

Big heavy halberd no work. -- Billy Bill

Well, that sucked. -- Violent J

Bloodped again... -- Bloop

Any Insane Clown Posse fans going to the gathering in July?

Morya -- Ahringol demands more sacrifices! -- Swashbuckler of Sea Dogs

     Surely not!  All die and come to him in their time.

All -- Okay, my team is tanking bad.  Do something! Kill my pathetic, worthless
warriors!!  Kill them NOW!! -- Spirit

All -- Don't kill me. -- Snoopy, Team Comic Strips

Once you learn how to interpret me I can make a lot of sense.  Therefore I feel that
I should represent Magical Madness this turn.  We seem to have come around to a
winning way with a four win turn.  Only that Talisman failed to achieve victory.
It's a good thing too.  As hard as I am to decipher, his drawl is worse! -- Rune

Ah sure am lucky that there ain't no DAing in this contest! -- Talisman

HAHA.  A Pot Hole that I was able to overcome.  Usually it is the reverse and the
pothole is my downfall. -- Sprain

The Larper -- You, you, you..  You are a big bully.  <cry> -- Acne

The Lovers -- Thankfully love cannot be destroyed by a simple Receding Hair Line

Barbara Ann -- I will not be denied.  I eat whatever I want. -- Big Gut

Welcome to the halfway mark of the Slaughter contest.  A reminder: no tournaments,
challenges, or avoids (the moderators do get a full avoid report, but other than the
first round snafu, there have been no avoids).  We have tried to give all the
relevant information in the scoring report that you need to make decisions (number of
DA's already done by your team, total fights fought by your team, etc).  Good luck to
all and while there are usually reasons the top team(s) are on top, this is a contest
where fortunes can change VERY quickly. -- Assur

Just in case we forget later, I wish to apologize to my team for being the lone loss!
I saw a weapon by the door and thought it was meant for me....  I had no idea I
wasn't supposed to grab it!  Perhaps next time I'll try a weapon again....  We shall
soon see! -- Galaxian, spokesman for CLASSIC ARCADE

Hub Capp -- 3 minutes? Gee Thanks! -- Vicky

                                 JASPER GULCH:  DM 85

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
