                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Ah, the Venomous Concubine.  I'm a sucker for Venomous Concubines.  I gotta
love 'em.  Not that it does any good to beg 'em for mercy, but then, is mercy what I
want in such a situation?  Maybe not, eh?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, OSKSI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch OUR HIGHEST HONOR's 
heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SOLDIER #3 win a fight and gain 
19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SPAGHETTI beat DRUNK DENNIS and DRUNK DENNIS lost 11 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
SOLDIER #1 takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these 
guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the OSKSI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

Lorins Peln

Finch's Art -- No, doesn't work for me.  Too much red in it.  I like something more
soothing. -- Maur Tolidar
P.S.  What, you think a golem can't appreciate soothing art?  *I* can.

The Convicted Thief is pathetic.  He's worthless and weak and does not belong here.

RSI is now taking rollups for a slow version of the No-Tournament arena.  Send your
rollup to RSI listing the arena as "Slow No Tournament".  Sign and send in the
following pledge:

* I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
  use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
* I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
  preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
* I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
* I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
  the Dark Arena until they are dead.
* I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to the
  Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena 

1.  No tournament play (Dead tournament or otherwise)
2.  One team per manager
3.  Team starts with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena
5.  20 teams required, per RSI
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead.)
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

Hammer will be the focal point for this arena's Player Committee.
