                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You sorry saps certainly are gluttons for punishment.  It appears I am so bad,
despite having the political points, I haven't recieved my invite.  What does that
say about you?  Now I am not going to play your sick little game this turn, as it is
apparent many of you enjoy recieving my brow beatings.  So much so, you are starting
to all remind me of Padre's mother.  Especially Spirit.  If he grew his hair out and
pulled those last three teeth, who would know the difference?
     I have to mention the lowly tatics of some.  It seems it's acceptable to sit out
turns, many in some cases, and yet be granted your challenges on return.  This was
not always so, and is the pure scumbag tactic of the unskilled.  Those who know they
cannot possibly match up with the superior abilities of managers, such as the AA,
have often used questionable methods.  You know who you are.  Next time you will be
mentioned by name, for all to mock and ridicule.

Lastly, we have an old team back.  Welcome back, Knights of Legend!!  Now get the
hell out.

That is all

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon BAD 
COMPANY this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 12th position in the wake of 
a 1-4-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week KNIGHTS OF LEGEND went 4-1-0 to move up 7 in the rankings.  My 
praise to THE ILLEARTH for their 3-1-1 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a 
skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  WILLIAM WALLACE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MIGHTY KASHITZ and was awarded 
22 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FEVER DOG put 
down THE RABBI, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Who 
here was not present for the title fight this week as PRINCE VALIANT boldly 
challenged SMIRK SMACKMORE in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  The city 
has turned out in honor of PRINCE VALIANT, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the 
old women in NIATOLI ISLAND seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIATOLI ISLAND "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  NIATOLI ISLAND, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is BIG LAKE BANDITS, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding BIG LAKE BANDITS.  Indeed it was 
KNIGHTS OF LEGEND.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  
SPICOLI take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in NIATOLI ISLAND.  As a 
gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his heart.  True, DEVIANT 
MONK?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of NO-ARMED BANDIT?  All the city knows 
the duel went in favor of DEVIANT MONK.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other 
cities of this "mighty" victory.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games 
this week, it seems that HOSTILE HOBO posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized SIR EDWARD.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand HOSTILE HOBO was 
overcame by SIR EDWARD.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My hearty congratulations WAR PIG, for 
thy revenge upon JARVIS, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  OG must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the arena by a 
successful Bloodfeud won by SPICOLI of NYE MAULERS.  Hail SPICOLI for thy victory!  
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in NIATOLI ISLAND as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Knights of Legend -- Welcome back my IC brother to our arena.  As you can see, it's
become infested with AA members.  Time to exterminate! -- Spirit

Smirk -- Grats on the throne.  Sorry I missed your party but with Bashur's mother in
town... -- Spirit
P.S.  Clever DM column.  Does Denise write them for you?

Brunhylda -- Nice way to exit the isle.  Especially the same turn Lil Denise was
bragging about beating you.  Wonder how Immoral Desire enjoyed being smacked around.
lol -- Spirit

Immoral Desire -- Where'd you go?  <grin> -- Spirit

Lil Denise -- I don't know what kind of 'relationship' you and Deeders have but I'm
sure it's not the normal friendship type that DarkHeart and I have.  God only knows
what goes on in the AA 'hideout'. -- Spirit the ever so hetero

Lil Denise -- Lok dying wasn't a big deal.  Not my best warrior by far so no misery
here.  Only reason he had such a good record was because of all your guys he fought.
-- Spirit

Paladin -- Yes, congrats on your victories against me.  You are a fine young manager!
I just didn't realize you was the best AA manager until recently.  No matter how much
they beg don't give them any advice!  See you on the sands! -- Spirit

Crambus -- Yeah why does Og still draw breath?  I expected a BF by now.  He's not
that good so I'm sure you can beat, er, compete with him. -- Spirit

Lowly Bashur -- What I do when I choose my challenges is called good strategy.  You
should try it sometime. -- Spirit
P.S.  Perhaps one day if you work very hard you will attain the rank of Head Outhouse
Cleaner.

Leaper Leper -- Congrats on your TC!  You do our island proud. -- Spirit

Smirk -- Our title bout was blocked by Ghoul's cheap TV challenge.  That really
pisses me off, for that I gotta kill Og. -- Spicoli

Deeders -- I do not want to see a '-' in front of your team name anymore.  We fight
here every turn, every single turn.  Don't make The Rabbi the next cadaver in
Spicoli's pile of trophies.  Spicoli will shave off his greasy beard, and his head.
-- Crambus

Bashur -- I don't know or care what pack of malformed freaks you operate here, but
your ignorant banter has gotten old, union lover.  I hope your stay here is as
uncomfortable as the ladies undergarments you wear.  I hate you. -- Crambus

All -- While I take a break from smashing cute little kittens into the ground, I'll
also break my seven year silence and reintroduce myself to the sands of "NIYTYOLE"
Island.  I am Crambus, manager of Nye Maulers and Head Court Jester of the feared
Allied Axis.  There, now I'm good for another seven (that's 7, spirit) years.

Den/Brashur -- Brashur is finally right about something.  Mine are scrubs and it is
good you enjoy beating them.  Started with 3 very frail & expected them to die.  The
new ones are frail and DA meat, too, after 1 more turn.  Just trying to make do a few
turns to see what the Rugs gave me.  Not a good idea.  Going for upgrades and it will
be interesting to see what you say when I beat you with some real warriors. -- Padre

Denise -- Not only did you misrepresent the previous turn's matchup between Brunhylda
and Immoral but even after the loss you repeated the lunacy by challenging Brunhylda
after she gained immortality.  It's quite possible that Immoral Desire deserved
better management than you are capable of giving.  Then again, ID was of your
design.... -- DD

Welcome back to Knights of Legend and The Chosen One!

Darkfart -- Did you know that if you build a man a fire you will keep him warm for a
night, but if you set him on fire you will keep him warm for the rest of his life. --
Den

Crambus -- There may not be much left of Og if you don't hurry.  Paladin is working
him over pretty well. -- Den

Spirit -- I wouldn't say you are the dumbest manager in the arena, but if Coward
Bashur leaves you will once again hold the title. -- Den

Knights of Legend -- Strange, my ex-wife calls our first 6 months together the
"nights of legend." -- Den

The Interogator -- I'd say our careers were heading in different directions if it
weren't for the fact that you only seem to be able to beat me.  Myself, I'm wondering
if there is any place on the sands for... -- Unwanted Guests

The Holiday Seasons are upon us.  Prepare for all sorts of undesirable things!
   -- We attempt to eat so much our gas competes with Darkfart
   -- We get the most unwanted guests crashing our parties.  And unless we want to be
ostracized, even Spirit can't be sent away.
   -- The AA fills the parking lot without regard that someone else might need one of
the two spots their vehicles each take up
   -- Please don't do that caroling thing again, Bill.  You really can't sing
   -- Beware of Deeders' Fruitcake

However, while they can't fight, the light show at Padre's stable is most impressive!
-- General "Bah Humbug" Bashur (in a surprisingly good mood after a terrible turn)
