                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is no surprise that I am the three-time Duelmaster.  It is no surprise that 
Belinda has her eye on me.  It is no surprise that I now head off to The Big Time.
     I leave with nothing to accomplish.  I leave having beaten the best Chimlevtal 
has had to offer.  I leave knowing I am the best.  So I say to you stick it in your 
pipe and smoke it.

                                          -- Candlestick DMIII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Apparently it was 'brave' challenge week in Chimlevtal.  And I'm not talking 
about the normal pacifistic ways of the arena.  I'm talking about challenges that 
probably should not have been made!  Suprisingly, some of them even ended 
successfully.  Starting from the bravest of all...
     KANEN VILESTAR (31-6601) (5-3-0,44) of SHADOWHOLD bloodfeuded PANTOMIME (31-4527) 
(9-4-2,120) of DARKNESS FALLS.  Whoops!  KANEN is lucky he didn't follow his teammate 
with a fall into darkness.  Or perhaps that was what D. Darkheart was trying for.  
Glory or death... 
     FHTAGN (31-6516) (15-21-1,104) of WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U! challenged WAVES TOO BIG 
(31-6659) (13-6-0,111) of BASH BROS OCEAN.  A losing record aimed blow goes after a 
high powered slasher?!?  Talk about asking for it.  Yet it worked out for the 
Pentarque (sorry, but I can never remember which 'the' to use, so I'll use the English 
version).
     CLYDE BARROW (31-6733) (0-3-0,3) of THE OUTLAWS 4 challenged AKETI WARSINGER (31-
6777) (2-1-0,23) of SHADOWHOLD.  This one just looks a bit silly.  When you're winless 
and at the bottom of the initiates, you really shouldn't be looking at the top of your 
challenge range for potential fights.  Look at the other losers around you!
     BONNIE PARKER (31-6732) (2-1-0,17) of THE OUTLAWS 4 challenged SLING SHOT (31-
6729) (4-4-0,33) of USEFUL WEAPONS. Ok, maybe this one is not as 'brave' as the rest 
of them, but it was still an unsuccessful high point differential up-challenge. 
     Smithy continues to shine and be the apple in my eye!  One DC and her POOL CUE 
poked permanent holes in MA BARKER.  We lose an Outlaw and that ugly centerpiece known 
as a CANDLESTICK on the same turn!  Simply beautiful!
     STRATOS backed himself on to the throne.  Someone really needs to knock him off, 
because I strongly suspect there will be no DM Column.  
     One new team, STUNG!  Welcome!
     Not one team clearly came out as the best for the turn.  5 Dark Arenas and 21 
other fights (1 BF, 9 challenges, 4 NPC fights) from 11 teams.  In case you need 
trouble adding (and I'm sure some of you do), that comes out to 43 warriors.  I 
certainly won't complain about that participation.  It allows me to keep my job!  The 
pay could be better, though!  
     Unfortunately, the commission employee that was providing me with avoid 
information is MIA.  I'm guessing WHAMMO in the DARK.  Or maybe he refused to pay for 
DESSERT and an OUTLAW put him on the bottom of the OCEAN.  Perhaps he made an AVENGER 
upset and even an OTTOBAHN racer couldn't get him away fast enough.  Of maybe it was 
an allergic reaction to a STING while trying to put the NUMBERS together in the 
SHADOWS.  I don't know, but now all I get is this lousy information:

                 WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U! avoided USEFUL WEAPONS.
                 POWERSLAVE was the most challenged warrior.

     I have certainly enjoyed this turn!  I hope you all do as well!

                                          -- Belinda, your fantastic, fabulous, 
                                             overambitious, super smart, hog-eating 
                                             spy mistress!
