                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah yes, here I am again!  My rightful place!  Proof that this arena belongs to
The Inner Circle.  It was fun getting my revenge on Spicoli for killing that sucky
teammate of mine, Succubus.  Think I'll have another go of it!  See how long I can
keep the throne.  Until next turn!

     Well, what are you looking at, NIATOLI ISLAND?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, BIG LAKE BANDITS, 
since DEMONSPAWN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this 
keeps up, BIG LAKE BANDITS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop 
of 4 in the rankings?  XXX BANDITS turned their 3-2-1 turn into a 7th place rank in 
the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, 
I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, DEMONSPAWN, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
BRUNHYLDA win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG-FU MASTER beat 
BYL BONESNAPPER and BYL BONESNAPPER lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks 
like NIATOLI ISLAND has some guts at least, DEN'S FAVORITE the Duelmaster was this 
turn's most-challenged warrior.  DEN'S FAVORITE Bloodfeuded SPICOLI for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is the spice of 
life, NIATOLI ISLAND may be getting bland, as DEN'S FAVORITE 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 BANDITS was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks 
like OBSIDIAN HALL avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, 
if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  Gee, BAD COMPANY, ain't it past due for sending RICO 
SAVVY Dark Arena?  What took ol' '19-18-3' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Whoa!  
I'll even buy HOSTILE HOBO a drink tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark 
Arena, I want to be on his good side!  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of NIATOLI ISLAND.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Den -- Yes, of course.  If you can raise enough money and deposit it in my account, I
will run all five.  I anxiously await, but have to admit that I expect this to be yet
another failed promise by the AA Trinkets. -- Coach, Classic Characters

Skinny -- Was that yet another AA clown who fell before me?  Men, especially AA boys,
are puds. -- Angry Ex-Wife

Ricco Savvy -- Now THAT was an example of real hustle and I am proud. -- Hustler

Deeders -- I believe the correct term is Den-o-saur, and indeed Rico is one of the
last of this archaic design.  As we both know, we have transcended Den's pre-clinton
era DM concepts.  Indeed, this turn poor Rico was pointed down the dark path with
naught, but a clap on the back and a second-hand war flail.  May he be welcomed in
the halls of his fathers. -- Bill

Coach -- I was pro-life before I met you. -- Bill

Darkheart -- My 2 wins against you last turn forced a smile so large the top of my
head just about rolled backwards.  Tread lightly my friend for you never know when
you may step upon the very future you chase. -- Den

Spirit -- I am assuming you will be ducking a challenge from the Bonesnapper again
this turn, but if you foolishly let it go through the kill desire will be higher than
your estrogen count.  I cannot allow ADM to be tarnished with another load of your
scum, Den's Favorite dies this turn. -- Den

Duelmasters Buffet -- My assumption is that you are no stranger to buffets, buffets
of ignorance, buffets of loneliness, and buffets of unbeforeseen ugliness. -- Den

Deeders -- The 80s called... they want their personal ads back. -- Den

Paladin -- Well chosen, young man, in spite of your father's and brother's guidance,

you still hold the highest ranking of your family.  Continue to ignore their advice
at every turn and you shall enjoy more victories than they will see. -- Den, High
Priest of the Allied Axis

XXX Bandits -- Nothing to say last turn?  You have not been this silent since Deeders
found you hand deep in his underwear drawer. -- Den

Hallowieners -- Are you actually going to fight your garbage here in my arena?  You
must enjoy punishment more than your wife. -- Den

Coach -- I see you could muster only 2 wins last turn, pretty pathetic.  I guess
coaching to mediocrity is your standard -- Den

Crambus -- Another week and another kill, the fights favor you, even though charisma
never has. -- Den

Bill -- I assume if all goes to plan that Hustler will be lying next to his innards
by the time this is read.  Well fought, Chief Justice. -- Den

Niytyole -- As usual the power of the Allied Axis continues to be uncircumvented by
your witlessness.  While we ride the echelons of greatness you wallow in the misery
of need.  It is no accident that we have everything and you nothing, this is how the
brilliance of life works.  Recognize your desire to be more like us, then learn from
us, and someday maybe you can hold your chin off your chest and walk through life
without the perpetual pain of a loser following you like a ruthless shadow. -- Den

After exiled from my island for assassinating my school teacher with poisonous red
wine and killing my own mother for having too many kids I return owner off the XXX
BANDITS and future duelmaster of NIATOLI ISLAND. -- STUDCRAFT

Paladin -- It is truly dark days when your own brother at the age of 11 beats you
twice in a row! So every night back in the barracks he tells me it's his 21 speed I
need more guys with speed! -- STUDCRAFT

Vixen -- That was pure luck I wasn't feeling very well that day and will enjoy the
rematch with the easy win! -- STUDCRAFT

Deeders -- I hate to break it to you, but the rumors surrounding Defiance are not
true.  That said, poor Judas was vastly outmatched.  Defiance, when Judas faced him,
looked thus: 9-5-12-21-17-9-11 STK Poor/Good, skills at 23/25/30/11/21/31.  A sweet
striker setup that rolled decently, but no prizes or anything unnatural going on. --
Assur

And if things go right, you'll see some of my even lesser creations grace the sands
here next turn! -- Assur

DEN'S FAVORITE (33-3581) DEMONSPAWN (194)

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $149.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI.

Please make your reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

Look for the tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope 
you're all looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
