INTER COMPANY MEMO

FR: Little Dragon, Duelmaster of Arvat

RE: Every Dragon Has His Day

CC: Tenacious D, People's Champion

After 38 fights, I finally ascended to the throne.  You would think I would have more
to say.

Halo -- While not against a down challenge, you are simply too young and dumb for me.
You defeated Autumn Lightning (and sent him into retirement).  Well done!  The Sword
will still rest in peace.  Pieces?

160 Swiftly -- The strat changed worked.  That's what I love about this game...
layers and layers.

Perhaps I shall see you all next turn ...

If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else.  It will
spread into your work and into your life.  There are no limits.  There are only
plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.
Bruce Lee

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ARVAT. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  A stormcloud is 
brewing over the DEATH BY DESIGN guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this 
ones 2-3-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 2-3-0 outing, 
DARK LOTUS has advanced 7 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was THE 
CLASSICS who went from last turn's 15-26-2, to this week's record of 18-27-2.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for BLOATED BARBARA, who flew up 28 points in the rankings after 
mashing COE RUPTOR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was COE RUPTOR, who dropped 24 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with BLOATED BARBARA.  Our battling duelmaster LITTLE DRAGON has 
managed to hold the title, fending off 160 SWIFTLY's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, B.I.G..  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a 
day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that SECRET SQUIRRELS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of SECRET SQUIRRELS' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause DEVIL ADVOCATES beats feet every time SECRET SQUIRRELS smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this DATA STREAM BELIEVER you ask, with 24 points 
and a 3-2-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, THE RED VIPER went after OOZING OLIVER, who was higher by 21 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, THE RED VIPER overcame OOZING OLIVER.  
EXTERMINATION of ANGELS OF PAIN had better have a good reason for challenging down 8 
points in a challenge which it won.  I thought EXTERMINATION showed great skill and 
promise when it won victory over THE SEAL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  The audience likes blood and there was 
plenty of it covering #CANTTOUCHTHIS as he was driven to an early grave by TENACIOUS 
D of the STRAGETY, DAMMIT!.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will 
may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARVAT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

     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."
