                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So!  Haraldur has Achilles' Heel, does he?  He should give it back and get his
OWN heel.  Much better that way.

                                   The Astonished

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in OSKSI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as AESIR is pushed out of top team by THE CONFUSED, who came from 2nd 
with a 3-2-0 this turn.  THE NUKES stable has parlayed this turn's 2-1-0 into a 3 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And 
let's see, DEWEY fought PETE HARNISCH and gained 25 points and contributed to GAMES 
LIBRARY's 1-4-0.  PETE HARNISCH has lost to DEWEY, falling 18 points, while helping 
make BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES a 2-2-0 turn.  Well done, OSKSI, the Duelmaster was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps GRAPH is not as thrilled, being challenged 3 
times.  LEFTISTS BLOW challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to 
dethrone GAMES LIBRARY's warrior.  And not without some honor, LEFTISTS BLOW now 
claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of OSKSI.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I 
have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Elefont uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the AESIR stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on OSKSI, what are you afraid of?  And guess 
who avoided AESIR stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was THE BALROGS.  Anyone 
surprised?  Building dreams on hope, DAVID CONE challenged up 48 points this turn to 
take on FROSTY from THE NUKES stable.  And crowds were on their feet when DAVID CONE 
claimed a victory from FROSTY, and now has 99 points for his efforts.  Well now, what 
do you expect when someone like C. SCHUMER from THE CONFUSED challenges down 24 
points to fight FHIRDOK of THE BALROGS?  It pains me to see warriors take advantage 
of the system like this.  C. SCHUMER bested FHIRDOK, as if it surprises anyone.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A farewell moment, if you please, 
HARALDUR of AESIR has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his shield. 
This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has HARALDUR been sent to the Dark Arena by 
AESIR?  And why with a 15-5-0 record??  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, 
he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, OSKSI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in OSKSI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in OSKSI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Graph, just like a Lefty you ASSUME facts not in Evidence.  I've done the research, I
KNOW my history and I know of NO Rightist that comes remotely close to the mass
murder strewn about in the 20th Century by Leftists.  I don't want you to do MY
research, I want you to either a) do yours or B) keep quiet as you know not what you
say! -- Leftists Blow
P.S.  Wisdom changes the mind, seek it out!

Not Hoyle -- "You stupid idiot" but three lines into the fight?  Wow, your reputation
preceded you. -- Dreubra

Toad -- Although I'm glad to have a good manager in Osksi, your team name is lacking.
Those lefties are generally confused, but where's the panache?  There isn't any wit
nor creativity with your names.  I think you need a makeover. -- Poppa Balrog

Gomer -- Your days are numbered, punk!  I'm first and probably last in taking you
out! -- Yrohk

Leftists Blow -- That is no reason to reshelve your books in the wrong places. --
Dewey

A. Colmes -- You're not the only one!  I'm totally at a loss here. -- Not Hoyle

Bookie (tW) -- You're confused?  That would explain a lot. -- The Goalie

Frosty -- (heavy sigh)  It's the little things that get you.  I thought I had the ice
age business under control.... -- Ghost of SimEarth

Gods, talk about your CLASSIC bad replacement! -- Nick, wondering what horrible thing
he did without realizing it to be punished like this

Ymir -- Me Grimlock need new strategy. -- Grimlock

All -- What was THAT!!  I said I wanted a 'fight', not some slaggin' no bearings
arena wash-out.  Hey "Bookie", how 'bout you? -- Slag

All -- ..............! -- Snarl

Osksi -- Wow, damn 2-1 my first turn.  Oh well, I wasn't too hot on this weak,
watered-down undersized Grimlock version to begin with.  Time for a new model.  Wha-

                             Death Fest Begins July 29/DM 59 T-172

     "You drive a hard bargain Hammer," responded Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul, "but the
Gladiatorial Commission has agreed to re-open DM 58 Delarq Tor as a Slow Arena
exclusively for a period of six months to those Death Fest contestants who fight
their stables at least 67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death
Fest; on the condition that at least 20 stables qualify for the Illis Iron Stable
Award at the conclusion of the Death Fest and those qualifying managers send a New
Stable to DM 58 Delarq Tor without Cannibalizing their participation in the other
arenas where they have active stables!"
     Hammer felt a certain sense of satisfaction as he studied the ghoulish grin
spreading across the face of Lord Lian Ki Na-Sul; proud Arena Master of the once
dying Illis Arena, as the DM 59 Arena Authority signed the Gladiatorial Commission
papers authenticating the arrangement agreed upon by the two parties presiding.
     "You and the Gladiatorial Commission also drive a hard bargain," Hammer replied
as he reflected upon the prospects of Delarq Tor DM 58 being re-opened as a Slow
Arena with at least 20 New Stables by the Managers who fight their stables at least
67 times out of a possible 75 during the 15 rounds of Death Fest. "I also notice the
clause that for Delarq Tor to be open Exclusively for 6 months to the New Stables
managed by the Illis Iron Stable Award Winners that there must be at least 15 stables
Active each cycle. That is a fair bargain for the opportunity to battle for the
Duelmaster Throne each of those six months before Other New Stables are allowed to
enter Delarq Tor."
     This was a Golden Opportunity for both Veteran and Newbie Managers to pave a new
frontier of Delarq history by qualifying their Death Fest stables in DM 59 with 67
fights out of a possible 75; then for the price of running a stable in a Regular
Arena, continuing to be Active in DM 59 and sending a New Team Roll Up to be a part
of "History in the Making" when Delarq Tor would re-open for its First Turn as a Slow
Arena on November 3rd, 2005.
     Death Fest would conclude on T-186 August 25th, 2005 allowing the Illis Iron
Stable Award Winners enough time to be registered with the Gladiatorial Commission;
whereupon they would be able to submit a New Team Roll Up to the GC to start a New
Stable in Delarq Tor; be able to fight those New Gladiators in the Rookies 2005 Fall
Mailer Tourney; then begin competing for the DM 58 Duelmasters Throne in Delarq Tor
right out of the gate with the November 3rd 2005 T-1 Debut Opening Round.
     Hammer of the First Part had also negotiated with Lord Na-Zul of the Second Part
an agreement that All 10 Dark Arena Monsters and 17 NPCs Characters be re-named by
the Top Ten Death Fest Finishers. [See DM 59 T-171 Newsletter Team Spotlight by
Hammer for the complete listing of Dark Arena Monsters/NPCs and the Official Death
Fest Designation for which Top Ten Finishers re-name which characters!]
     Lord Na-Sul could not hide his delight at the prospects of Death being re-
delivered to his once dying arena during the Delarq Death Fest; the DM 59 Arena
Master agreed that these Death Fest Prizes were but a Small Exchange in Comparison to
the Profits to be made by the local Illis business merchants and surrounding
community from the Anticipated Influx into Illis by the Veteran and Newbie
Managers/Gladiators/Stables seeking to make History in the Delarq Death Fest.
     Nor could Hammer conceal his jubilation regarding the Call Across Alistari being
Answered to Cross Blades and Match Wits with the Devious, the Diabolical, the
Dangerous and the Down Challenging who were being drawn to the Delarq Death Fest to
Fulfill their Delarq Dueling Destiny!
