                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hi, everybody!  It's me, Mary Jane, your Duelmaster!  That's right!  Not only am I
the prettiest girl here in Osksi I can kick butt, too!  Everyone loves Mary Jane.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of OSKSI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
GRUNT, who pummelled KRONIC BLAZE, to pocket 18 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, GRUNT was winsome, after beating KRONIC BLAZE and seeing him lose 
65 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, OSKSI's Duelmaster SOLDIER 2 found himself 
the man of the hour, being "invited to dance" 2 times!  SOLDIER 2 successfully staved 
off a grab for the roses by GNOCCHI of PASTA.  Does OSKSI have no one talented enough 
to dethrone him?  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of PASTA should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, GREEN WITH ENVY scurried away from PASTA.  Oh, the shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  DARK CHAMPION 
in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for ZITI of PASTA.  Maybe that certain serving 
girl(?) at The Elefont will be!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for 
thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Lorins Peln -- We meet again! and again! and again!  Next time we should meet for a
drink instead. -- Bud Green

Pasta -- Sorry bout that.  Hope your new recruit works out for you.  I'm going to
lower my KD for a couple of turns just in case you bloodfeud.  I don't advise it
though.  I am Kronic after all.  But best of luck to you. -- Kronic Blaze

Bad Company -- Just because I'll make you fell good, real good, doesn't mean I'm good
for you! -- Satina, best in moderation

Soldier 2 -- Ooh!  You worked out! -- Mary Jane

Grunt -- There were three complete sentences from you in half a minute!  You'd better
watch out, someone might realize that you have two brain cells to rub together, and
who *knows* what you might be asked to do then. -- Lameridhor Sko

Bud Green -- Damn!  My blade rang in the second line, I disengaged to answer it, and
you shortened my short ribs for me.  Ouch.  And the call turned out to be from a
phone solicitor anyway, which added insult to the injury.  I hate it when stuff like
that happens. -- Lorins Peln

Ronar Sleen -- (muttering)  Damned hairy little--  Ahem, am I on?  I am?  Good, good. 
Sir, there were many aspects of that fight of which I totally disapproved!  Most
notably that bit at the end where "he nearly dies."  All the rest I can live with if
I must, but not that.  Let us both bend our efforts to avoiding it in the future. --
Tarobinz Maur

Ziti -- I have been studying the pasta question and now stand prepared to tackle it
in any form.  I may not always win, but those noodles *will* know they've been in a
fight.  Garlic, olive oil, and parmesan. -- Elvorn Marslan
P.S.  It's a place to start.

Bad Company -- Yes, and my momma told me to avoid bad company.  I didn't listen, of
course, who does?  But I'd do it now, if I could, except that Jorja's too lazy.  And
so we see what comes of it! -- Kovaramann Voth

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
