                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Here I am again, taking home my fourth Duelmaster Title.  I know I am quite
skilled and very good, but I cannot help wondering if my super success is somewhat
due to participating in an arena with warriors from The Allied Axis, which fight at a
level significantly lower than the NPCs?
     In my final spot it only seems proper to tell you all about me.  I will do so,
realizing that most of this data excludes results of my last DM Title fight and the
Faves announcement.
14-2-0 arena, 4 DM Titles
13-9-0 tournaments
Born 11-6-9-21-21-5-11 LU
Normal Endurance, Good Damage
+4 Defense, +3 Attack, +1 to 4 Parry
skill learn rate = 2.42
Masters in all but Parry and Decise
favorite learn - either Init or Riposte
favorite weapon = probably longsword

     Good bye all.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
NIATOLI ISLAND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, XXX BANDITS, 
since OBSIDIAN HALL took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now 
keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for HALLOWIENERS, 
whose 1-1-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 9th.  Ha!  NYE MAULERS turned their 
4-1-1 turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, 
and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch WILLIAMSBURG MALITIA's heads swell 
from their 4-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see SPICOLI win a fight and gain 24 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JACK CRANDAL beat PRO 2 and PRO 2 lost 12 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, HUSTLER has 
lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  The Don't Drop Inn, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
NIATOLI ISLAND's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  BAD 
COMPANY, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BRASH BROS XMAS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
BYL BONESNAPPER was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I notice GENOVYFA challenging down 20 points to 
fight TASSADAR, OBSIDIAN HALL doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to 
honor.  This is the sort of thing that makes the price of admission to NIATOLI 
ISLAND's games worth it!  GENOVYFA was overcame by TASSADAR!!  And we have HODAR in a 
challenge, going down 14 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought HODAR showed 
great skill and promise when it subdued 5 FINGER PUNCH.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  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!  BAD 
COMPANY has cause to pause today, as DOC HADES was sent to the Dark Arena, and came 
back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  Ya gotta go sometime, and 
SORROWHARVESTER's time was this time.  Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... 
(what?  me pity?).  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

All -- The graduation of Hustler probably ends the Classic Characters participation
in The Big N. -- Coach

Den and Co. -- I must say I enjoyed the Axis Allies spotlight.  It was one of the
best fiction briefs posted in a long time.  They say humor is very hard to write, so
kudos. -- Coach, Classis Characters

Ambitious Guard -- Thanks for the tussle.  I appreciate fighting you NPCs because you
seem so skilled, well-managed and aggressive, something which seems to be lacking in
Allied Axis warriors.  So, thanks. -- Angry Ex-Wife

Den -- Thanks for the kind, albeit verbose, statement. -- Coach

Brunhylda -- I must admit I did peak down your blouse and it seemed a little barren.
-- Hustler

Den -- You will get your wish.  Every time I get in range of one of yours, you will
get a challenge.  You and big mouth Brash both.  Get ready to find replacements. --
Padre

All of those who run their mouth a lot.  I am not one who does much talking, but just
so you will know my demeanor, my most favorite thing to do in Duelmasters is to make
those managers who have diarrhea of the mouth, eat their words.  Everyone knows you.
And to the coward who killed one of mine then hid the next turn, "Come out and take
your whiping."  I have adjustments to make then I will come get you!  No more talk
from me. -- Padre, mgr 4 Pros & a Hacker

Den -- I am well aware of my plebe status.  I've been a spectator long enough to know
that to everyone here, right now, I am just a bunch of hot air and they expect that
once my warriors become losers and <gasp> corpses, I will disappear into the night.
I know my situation and expect nothing more from any of you.  I will say only this.
I do not ask (or want) to be treated like some innocent child.  I was granted my
title for my service to my country and you can recognize it or not as you please.
You've proven yourself over the years.  I ask only for the same opportunity to prove
myself here on the sands.  When I'm working on my second generation of warriors here,
we can have this little discussion again... -- General Bashur
P.S.  Glad I was at least able to amuse you.
P.P.S.  High KD?  If anyone doesn't use such, they are the fools.  Simply beating
your opponent and then letting them get up gives them the opportunity to later turn
things around.  Killing them gives no such option.

Gasp, I'm surrounded by Deserters and Beggars.  And wow, a couple of super exciting
Lunger versus Total Parry fights.  I've been at this business 2 whole turns and
already the patterns of boredom begin! -- G. Bashur

Daemon Darkheart -- What places do you frequent here on the Isle.  With all those
titles expanding the size of your head, I want to make sure that I do my business
elsewhere.  Clearly there is no room for anyone to occupy the same room as you. -- G.
Bashur

AA -- You guys seem (and always have seemed) obsessed with parents, especially
mothers.  Is this something you lacked growing up? -- G. Bashur

I'd just like to say to all my worthless opponents that I am taking a brief hiatus,
that means a break, AA members.  I plan on taking a nice leisurely vacation to the
isle and compete in the upcoming tournament.  I sincerely hope the competition is
better than the sorry lot I've seen so far in Niytyole!  Now to find some
entertainment.... -- Deviant Monk

Hustler -- See, I was right!  I really didn't want ta fight ya after yer improvements
in our last battle!  Congrats on the throne and the invite ta immortality.  I hear
that you are something special! -- Brunhylda

Dammit, Byl!  I liked the outcome much better the first two times we met.  Someday
we'll have a rubber match to settle this up! -- Bleak

Den -- It's good to see that Inner Circle rejects land somewhere, though I'd prefer
they not land in the AA.  Hate to improve your lot. -- DD

Don't worry, General Bashur, we'll make sure you continue to be unimpressive. -- DD

Denny -- I enjoyed your spotlight last turn.  Disturbed to read the part about Bandor
gripping his nuts.  More disturbed that you were wanting a taste of them.  Not a
hazelnut fan myself.  Only problem with it is Deeders says you're not even in the AA.
Did you know that?  Senility is setting in.  At any rate I'm glad you have an excuse,
err reason, now why you suck so badly.  It's the commission's fault for all the sub
par recruits they send you.  When I get those I just switch up some paperwork and
send them your way.  Lol -- Spirit

XXX Bandits -- Grats on dispatching The Intern.  Now we don't have to listen to his
dribble anymore. -- Spirit

Denny, high priestess of the AA outhouse -- No way one of your short stature would
have a chance of taking out dens favorite.  If you liked him so much wait til you see
his replacement. -- Spirit

Hostile Hobo -- I am no easy win. -- Lok

AA -- keep challenging. I like the wins! -- Spirit

Brunhylda -- The Sailor's Knot?  You sure that is your favorite tavern and not the
restraining equipment used on your prom night? -- Byl Bonesnapper

Studcraft whelp manager of the XXX Bandits -- I don't mind you avenging death by
taking the life of my Intern, but the other challenge aggravates me.  Dare you test
me when there is so many other options dangling within your dung-stained grasp?  Even
though I was victorious in that challenge, I will now torment your team without
interruption.  My challenges will only cease when you apologize for the challenge, or
I have taken 10 wins from you, or 2 additional deaths.  This turn, if all goes
according to plan your slasher shall be dead.  Half way there. -- Den

Dameon Darkfart -- Are you sure that you are not "Only of His Name" as there will be
no children forthcoming, charisma score being as low as it currently is; "Flatulence
of Niytyole Island" due to your well-known digestive problems; "Father of Loneliness"
being shunned by any who mean something; "Wizard of the 5th Gate" which actually
makes sense, I think we have the 1st through 4th locked down; and "Lord of
Abstinence" as outlined prior.  That would make more sense. -- Den

Spirit -- Spoken word eluding you yet again? -- Den

Gen Bashur -- Looks like you are getting worse already.  Won't be long you will be
wallowing at the bottom as your family has done for generations.  Also looks like you
are the type of pathetic sissy that holds his warriors out after they make a kill,
thus denying the other team their just right of a  bloodfued.  Pretty sorry on your
part.  How did you claim the title of "General" with so little honor? -- Den

Coach -- Thought you were gone?  The Island will be a better place. -- Den

Filthy Phill -- Very nice to see the Illearth upon my sands once again.  Welcome home
9th in Command, welcome home. -- Den, High Priest of the Allied Axis

Crambus -- Planning for any wins this turn? -- Den

Deeders -- When will the sickening plight of the Apostles weigh against the heretic
that mocks Xmas?  Will you stand there aghast while Bashur taints your most beloved
of holidays? -- Den

Paladin -- Any more lessons in Large Shield usage this turn? -- Den

Editor -- Rare is it that I would agree with the Inner Circle, but for some reason
over the years some idiot changed the name of our arena to something foolish.  I have
title and deed to property on "Niytyole Island", I have no idea what this "Niatoli
Island" is.  Perhaps we should convene a quorum of managers to have this resolved.
The people have spoken. -- Den

     Apparently (according to Debby Tonte) it involves striped ice cream.  Be that
     as it may, at one point the Commission was burdened with a clerk who was
     enamored of the unnecessary Y inserted in various names.  She said it made
     them "exotic."  You know how it is with the young females of that type,
     unicorns, fluffy pink bunnies, and dotting their letters i with hearts.  The
     people of the places in question petitioned to have those extra letters
     removed, and it was done.  If you want to rename the ARENA (not the whole
     island), you will have to take it up with the head of the Commission.  I
     don't personally care for the old form, as it is too long for the spaces in
     the forms and leaves people wondering how to pronounce it, plus it's so
     "cute" that it makes my teeth hurt. -- Editor
