                             Notes from the arena champ.

My mother once told me, if I didn't have anything nice to say I shouldn't say 
anything.

                                          -- Mighty Kashitz

                                      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, BIG LAKE BANDITS, 
since OBSIDIAN HALL took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this 
keeps up, NYE MAULERS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 6 
in the rankings?  BRASH BROS XMAS turned their 5-0-0 turn into a 3rd place rank in 
the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, 
I'm impressed, a 5-0-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, OBSIDIAN HALL, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  NIATOLI ISLAND saw the first turn for WEIRD 
STUDENTS, a 4-1-0, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  
Take note friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see THE 
RABBI win a fight and gain 30 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, UNWANTED GUESTS beat WART 
HOG and WART HOG lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  DEVIANT MONK challenged 
NIATOLI ISLAND's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in 
with the new, as DEVIANT MONK takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  DYSTOPIAN OVERLORDS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like BIG LAKE BANDITS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  ZYRO 
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 THE INTEROGATOR of BIG LAKE 
BANDITS for challenging up by 21 to DEATH'S HAND.  THE INTEROGATOR lost to get 61 
points of recognition.  And we have ZYRO in a challenge, going down 15 points for the 
fight.  Guess what?  I thought ZYRO showed great skill and promise when it beat 
POLYPHEMUS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  I could say I saw this coming, but so 
could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  THE HAND COLLECTOR's 12-22-0 has 
earned him the Dark Arena.  Let's see, 14-5-0.  Pretty good record for a living 
warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for NO-ARMED BANDIT of 
DUELMASTERS BUFFET.  Tsk.  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.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Darkfart -- WOW!  Three whole awards.  I can only think of 1-2 things which exceed my 
awe of your "accomplishment."  Granted I spent less than a second considering it. -- 
G. Bashur
P.S.  Looks like the AA was mostly as absent from the personals as your warriors were 
from the arena last turn.

Crambus -- You have been noticed, coward. -- General Bashur

Den -- Yes, the tough times have arrived.  It has been far too long since an XMas 
warrior has buried an opponent.  Hopefully that trend will end soon, but I refuse to 
resort to the tactics that the true cowards in Niytyole use.  While you surely enjoy 
and giggle at the nickname you've given me, it doesn't fit.  It hurts that you'd group 
me with them, with TDO and Spirit at the head of the list. -- Bashur
