                             Notes from the arena champ.

      I salute the Khalhums Dwarf and keep out of his reach, thank you very much.
Some of these dwarves are...grabby.


                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly NIANIA games.  LARSEN E caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ORANGE and was awarded 12 points in 
recognition.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail SHOCKING, 
Duelmaster of NIANIA!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  THE GOLDEN FISH is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of 071409B are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

The Khalhums Dwarf?  Well, I suppose that he was better than nobody, but not by much.
Short, hairy, and useless. -- Spike McGold
P.S.  So how come Mellisande is the one graduating today?  I've got more fights than
she does, and I'm tall and manly, besides.  (flex, flex)  You should see me with my
shirt off!

Well, I don't say the orderlies were lying when they claimed that the Kung-Fu Master
has a secret admirer, but I bet they were stretching the truth a little. -- Mari Coy
P.S.  Oh, okay!  I know some women really go for that "orcish muscle" look, but
brains helps, and you won't find any of THAT in Geroge Krag, Master of Kung-Fu.  As

Orange -- Ah, the only real opponent on the sands.  I can't say that I'm thrilled
with the chance to have a "real" fight, but at least you turned out to be an easy
woman.  Er, I didn't mean it THAT way, I'm sure you're very discriminating sometimes.
But on the sands...easy. -- Larsen E

They tell me that fighting the Embezzling Scribe on my first match is both good and

bad.  I don't care about the down-side, I won.  That's good. -- Findellis
P.S.  Besides, think how bad it would have been for me in the guildhouse if I had the
only loss?  So I didn't lose.

20 October 2006
In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Street Legal
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the
Turf War 5.  Whoever sent this to me...please email me at rbaphomets@yahoo.com.
