                             Notes from the arena champ.

As I predicted I have returned.  Domination is never truly permanent.  There is always 
someone out there that is a game changer.  Not sure if the "Game Changer" will rear 
its ugly, and I do mean, U G L Y ! ! ! head this week or not.  Only time shall tell.  
I have issued my challenge to Drool Rockworm as that is my best hope of winning.  I 
have 7 turns to survive to get my invite. It may be as short as 6 turns but I think 7 
is the magic number as of last turn.  If I am still breathing at the time you read 
this it will be down to 6 turns.  Gentleben has never graduated one of my style so I 
doubt my chances of survival are all that great....unless....I can some how figure out 
how to submit my own strats....hmmmmm, now I got myself thinking.  I must go iron out 
the details to protect my tail.

'Til I return to dominate you once again,

                                          -- Dominatus Non Viz

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARVAT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If this keeps up, DANKRUPT, you'll 
have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 in the rankings?  BIG LAKE 
NOMADS turned their 2-3-1 turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any 
better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY beat LAGER and LAGER lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  THE WEAPONSMASTER challenged ARVAT's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  
And if variety is the spice of life, ARVAT may be getting bland, as DOMINATUS NON VIZ 
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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BIG LAKE NOMADS was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DEVIL 
ADVOCATES.  Ha ha ha ha!  HALFLING was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a 
little credit to RISCHIO of IL MALVAGIO for challenging up by 20 to HALFLING.  
RISCHIO won to get 29 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Gee, BIG LAKE NOMADS, ain't it past due for sending 
DROOL ROCKWORM Dark Arena?  What took ol' '14-14-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  
We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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
