And it's Out the Window with you, 4 Bridges! Can I gloat now? Ah, but I shouldn't gloat, it would be very low and mean-spirited of me, when two of my lovely young teammates were slain by the Captured Orc. (snicker, snork) But I can't help it! They're dead, so sad, too bad, but *I* live and triumph! Larsen E SPY REPORT Thankyouthankyou. It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in NIANIA. Hope you enjoy the show. Oh, who am I kidding? I already got paid! Hey everybody, watch out for SASHINDA, who flew up 8 points in the rankings after mashing SPIRITUAL PAIN like a melon. Keep your eye on this gal. Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands. SPIRITUAL PAIN was subdued by SASHINDA and drops 5 points. Well, everybody's pal LARSEN E moved his record to 12-4-1 by defeating 4 BRIDGES in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 5 recognition points. 4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location. But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle! And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE GOLDEN FISH, please raise you hand. Wow. Does NIANIA really have that many liars? For those of you who like math, try this one: THE GOLDEN FISH + Weapons That go Boom = OUT THE WINDOW + Avoid City. Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, KORONEDUS would be president. Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win. In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, HAND OF HELL went after KORONEDUS, who was higher by 23 points. Well, when the dust settled, HAND OF HELL subdued KORONEDUS. Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the most interesting, though! Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no. Silly buggers, eh? I think I had better cut this one short. It's been nice chatting to those of you whom I have not offended yet. C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks. Hasta la bye-bye.

THE DEAD W L K TEAM NAME SLAIN BY TURN Revenge? PERSONAL ADS An Embezzler, a deserter and a thief. None with any honor, all handed defeat. -- Team Havok Userous Merchant -- I see that the arena reporter credited your win to "luck." I certainly hope so! Because I've been studying, you know? Trying hard. So I'd hate to think I lost because of simple inadequacy. -- Sashinda Alas! I was innocent of wrong-doing, but he was pitiless! -- Ghost of Findellis I have no mercy for these foolish, whining Fratsfa Slaves. They're as bad as the Delarquans. -- Koronedus Alas, and alas again! Are not the vials of his wrath emptied yet? -- Ghost of Verelesse Doland Sork -- Ah, you think to strike at me through my teammates? I am saddened, but not weakened by my grief. You have unleashed forces you do not comprehend. -- Koronedus Moro Sallleshi, Ambitious Guard -- For those kind words, I thank you, and your weak side also. Shall I kiss it and make it well? -- Sashinda To some people, such as Kung-Fu Masters, I do not speak. -- Larsen E Fatal Angel -- Beware! We have ways of revenging ourselves. Take warning. -- Biff Mugg, former citizen of Mordant Hand of Hell -- Fowl wrecker of havock! -- Ghost of Ssothiss, Thief by necessity Vendetta -- You do not BEGIN to comprehend the danger you have placed yourself in! -- Tarash Tarindanall, Creative Accountant Spiritual Pain -- Bah. -- Biff Mugg, former citizen of Mordant P.S. All this talk of "spiritual," it's humbuggery. Verelesse -- Dark-hearted wench, take that! -- Doland Sork, Captured Orc about to escape from bondage Koronedus -- (whine, whimper) -- Jenj, Fratsfa Slave Findellis -- I laugh, daughter of liars! -- Doland Sork, Captured Orc about to escape from bondage Sashinda -- You mock me with your loose ways, muck dweller, and refuse me the payment due, but I have my revenge. For now. -- Sedmon Var, Merchant P.S. There was no luck involved, you perverted pamperer of houseplants! 20 April 2007 All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists are not up to date. If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com). For that matter, if you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The Saint, keeper of lists LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS SPIRITUAL PAIN was devastated by SASHINDA in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight. HAND OF HELL won victory over KORONEDUS in a 1 minute Challenge battle. LARSEN E viciously subdued 4 BRIDGES in a crowd pleasing 2 minute gory Title brawl. IRON GYPSY defeated PERSISTENT BEGGAR in a unpopular 4 minute amateur's match. VENDETTA won victory over MORDANT DESERTER in a 2 minute amateur's fight. FATAL ANGEL overpowered CONVICTED THIEF in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.
