                             Notes from the arena champ.

I have a couple apologies to make this turn as I sadly have not been responding to my
messages as of late.

     First, to Fandil the Wise...  Yes, apparently I seem to have held this throne
for yet another turn.  Casper John seems to have his eyes set on this chair, and even
though he has had a couple valiant attempts, alas my skill pulled me out the wins.
He is a fine warrior, I might add.
     My second goes out to the 27 Club...  I am sorry for the loss of Blind Owl.  It
was not my intention to end his existance.  But, this is the risk we all take here on
the red sands.  As I meditate tonight I shall burn a candle for a fallen brother.

Capablanca...  Time to step up once again, bro.  Let's do this...

                                          -- Deathscar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARDIVENT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see OOO OOO OOO win a fight and gain 54 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TYNARAE beat 
PIGPEN and PIGPEN lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  CAPABLANCA challenged 
ARDIVENT's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
ARDIVENT may be getting bland, as DEATHSCAR stays top dog in the city.  The Victory 
Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From ARDIVENT's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
ARDIVENT, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  FANDILS the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was WE GOT GAME.  Ha ha ha ha!  
CAPABLANCA was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARDIVENT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ARDIVENT to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this 
place-- Snide Clemens

OOO OOO OOO -- Congrats!  After all those Challenger TVs, you finally graduated.
Hip, Hip, Hurray! -- Fandil The Wise

Wow!  The Red Sands strike yet again! Deathscar defends the throne while sending a
very experienced Blind Owl to his death.  A salute to Deathscar and our heartfelt
sadness to Blind Owl.  May he fight well in that Great Arena In The Sky. -- WOF and
Fandils everywhere

Lorens Klu -- How I held on for that win, I shall never know.  Just plain luck, my
dear. -- Earl

Freaky Tah -- I won one; I won one!  I feel... amazing! -- Mildred Leona

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

We pour out a libation for dead homey, Blind Owl, slain in the Title Match.  Respect.
-- Chess Master and the We Got Game stable

Deathscar -- Impressive victory.  Since The 27 Club has no one ready for a Blood
Feud, I will take up their cause.  En garde! -- Capablanca

Winehouse -- Aruaki Werecat, huh?  Me likey... -- Kasparov

If I wrote a personal ad to Shifteyed Volunteer, would he even notice? -- Ruy Lopez

     Yes.

Polgar -- You were all that stood between We Got Game and a perfect 5-0 turn.  And
now I'm washing dishes for a month.  They didn't tell me about this in Gladiator
College! -- Polgar the Disillusioned

Our congratulations to Ooo Ooo Ooo, Lord Protector and tourney victory from this
summer.  The other tourney participants just get a general salute. -- Jorja and the
Bluvalley Warriors

Uncle Leroy -- If I hadn't been FORCED to put on socks, I would have defeated you
barefoot.  Well, with sandals. -- Rocksock Jones

Kasparov -- No. -- Brooke Jones

Another unimpressive two-three.  Another bah. -- Rocksock Jones
P.S.  Maybe with a humbug, too.

Polgar -- Hi!  This loss is just to protect you from the curse of undefeatedness.  It
causes mental disturbances, you know. -- Brooke Jones

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission.
