                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Another match with a commission foe.  Some wine guy.  Chardinee.  *shrug*
     Anyway, it appears that Chuck is ready to step up, so I'm challenging him.
Better bring your A-game, Chuckie.  Yeah, you handled Harpoon handily... but he can't
hit the broad side of a barn at noonday.  I am calling for the two-minute win right
here.  I'm gonna keep pounding until you beg me not to stop.

     Come and getcha some dwarf!

-- Doom Dwarf, relishing the thought of a real match to defend the title

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  It looks like the guys(?) at BONSUR LONG NAMES had a good week as 
they went 4-1-0 to put them in 4th place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for URSA MAJOR, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing THE 
SHADE PRANCER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  CHANCE was overcame by THE SHADOW DANCER and 
drops 17 points.  Unlike most arenas, DOOM DWARF managed to get his challenge off 
against the 12-2-0 CHAINSAW CHUCK.  Well, everybody's pal DOOM DWARF moved his record 
to 14-5-0 by defeating CHAINSAW CHUCK in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 14 
recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that SENTINELS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of SENTINELS' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, 
cause BUNION SQUAD beats feet every time SENTINELS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, CHAINSAW CHUCK would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, ETUGEN KHAN went after RAMROD, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, 
when the dust settled, ETUGEN KHAN was bested by RAMROD.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in BONSUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

The Street Walker -- Missed turn over, and poor Squitchy is avenged.  Job done.  Now
back to the regular business of the arena. -- Orsinius

Blackjack -- Nice challenge.  It should not have been so easy. -- Bariloche

Chance -- I'll take that.  It is a fight I thought I should win, but there is always
that... chance. -- Etugen Khan

Saw Horse -- Oh, man!  That is just not the way a career should start!  There should
have been a victory party at the Cabana to celebrate my first victory after that one!
But no.  Dang saw horses, just stand there... -- Ursa Major

Chuck -- Well.  The drinking did NOT help there.  Good show.  I'm going to leave you
alone now. -- Harpoon, whimpering

Comission -- Okay, that's two venemous gigolos in the last five rounds.  Keep them in
the brothels and OUT of the arena, if you please. -- Ramrod

Convicted Assassin?  Bah.  An unimaginative fool. -- Kona Kate

The Arena Stalk -- A golem.  Ugh. -- Sarah Sundance

I'm not taking the Captured Pirate home to feed him smash.  No way. -- Luau Lila

The Shadow Danc -- What it is, your shadow doesn't hit back.  So it's only practice
up to a point. -- Queenie

The Bible Thump -- Hard on your bible, isn't it? -- Redondo Rhonda

Dooom Dwarf -- Well said.  Glad to see someone who puts more value on being
duelmaster than being positioned well for a tourney. -- the Beach Babes
P.S.  Come by the cabana and we'll ply you with the finest smash.

Blackjack -- You CARE what people will say? -- Queenie

Harpoon -- I don't think you want ot do that again.  It's bad for your record.  I am
going after your little dwarfie friend next. -- Chainsaw

Princess -- At least this time I hit you to win. -- Annie

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
