                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings, Fair Arkers!
     Lo and behold, I vanquished the one known as Sasha once again.  I tire of
fighting that sickly and immoral one....  Let's see, fresh meat in the Challengers
division, I see.  Alain Dragoon has a great record and might be my downfall, but I
salute your greatness and shall issue forth a challenge to you, good Sir.  Since we
may become good friends, may I refer to you as "Al Drag"?
     Hammurabi is a vicious one, that is what Tien told me from the hospital.  Thanks
to Hammurabi, Tien's rump is quite sore (and not from his usual Saturday night out
either).  There are rumors that Hammurabi is indulging in, let us say, "arena performance enhancing substances"....
     And of course we have good old Aujard, who hasn't the pleasure of meeting me
yet.  Good ol Aujard, who takes a beating with a smile on his face.  Course, it could
just be the Down Syndrome.
     Dart, the bloated one, is leaving us next turn and I can't say I'll miss him.
His style of "fighting" makes bile rise in the back of my throat...course that could
just be the cheap wine at Leeta's place.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  It was a tough 
week for MIDDLE WAY 11, to drop 8 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 
3-2-1 outing, DEATH'S CHOSEN has advanced 7 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for BORZOI, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing KISERU like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out 
on the sands.  NYTEMAIR was subdued by V.BALTIMORE-'W.BALT and drops 19 points.  Our 
battling duelmaster INOCHI has managed to hold the title, fending off ZZZZ'S' none 
too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, Z GLADIATORZ.  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!  
Did you hear that YAKUZA was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of YAKUZA's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause LA PENTARCHIE beats feet every time YAKUZA smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, MARSHMALLOW 
would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, AROURA went after SIR HEELIUS, who was 
higher by 25 points.  Well, when the dust settled, AROURA was bested by SIR HEELIUS.  
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  This week 12-15-1 RICHARDTHELIONHEART was 
sent to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take 
notice of this.  The audience likes blood and there was plenty of it covering CHIANA 
as she was driven to an early grave by SOHEI of the YAKUZA.  Congrats to BGAZ REDCLAW 
for revenging the death of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding EXTINGUISH a 
bit of dirt).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter 
problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Arkers -- It was nice to return after such a long absence, but our management has
decided that Dead For Hire is better suited to parking horses. -- Vertigo Pirate

Mercenary -- You and yours are no match for a lady. -- Lady Huntsman

Tien -- Perhaps now you know who is your better? -- Hammurabi

Maximillian -- Well, it IS about time you decided to participate.  Good call about
the comeback of your Oilers.  By now we know the final results. -- Curator

A continued congratulations to Yakuza's Inochi--a very fine gladiator and Duelmaster.
-- Curator

Bgaz -- I am not as zippety as I would like.  You made zzzz's out of me. -- Zippety

Aeryn Sun -- Not all zero's are worthless. -- Zero

Morngrym -- You challenged?  I am always ready to share zingers. -- Zinger

Alain Dragoon -- You awoke me only to chastise me? -- ZZZZ's

Aha, La Pentarque, yet another 1-0 for the Frenchies.  Salute. -- The Z Man

ZZZZ's has been put to sleep one more time.  1-0 for the Frenchies, so we lead 4-2!!
Glory! -- Le Pentarque

Argh.  I'm incredibly weak.  How can I put all the TPs on desperate after 30 seconds
and always lose in 6 minutes? -- Aujard

Blackstorm -- Leave Lady Fern cuties!  Come back to the fight!

Arkers Managers -- Good day to you all.  I have returned to this fine city once again
to try and graduate some guys from the second team I ever created.  It is going to be
a very long process since they were rolled up almost 20 years ago.  Please go easy on
them. -- DeGotti (Celestial Knights)

Death's Chosen -- A very unfortunate match up for you.  I will not be sitting out so
BF away. -- Sir Heelius 

Michael Eldritch mgr. Penumbral Mists -- Welcome to Arkers.  A fine and tough arena.
As far as Arker's protocols...basically don't downchallenge.  In the years I've run
here I've never downchallenged (challenges from the Throne don't count) and I've
never been downchallenged.  You are welcome to do as you want, but keep in mind you
would most likely have heavy downchallenges directed towards you each and every turn
there after.  Besides, there are enough warriors here that there are plenty of
fighters to upchallenge!  Once again, welcome! -- Sensei Jan and Yakuza

SwineTiger -- In just the 5 or so years I've been playing I've seen improvement in
strategies and design.  It is definitely a tougher game now than 10 years ago.
However, seeing as you are familiar with the game already it should take you no time
at all to "catch up". -- Sensei Jan

Sasha -- Why, thank you.  I prefer the term deadly over nasty though.  I have no wish
to fight you though, seeing as our managers are friends and allies.  However, I did
enjoy the "slipping around parries".  Good to see you graduating! -- Inochi

Celestial Knights -- Wow, you are an older team than even Dead For Hire.  Welcome
back! -- Sensei Jan and Yakuza

Horn Quafers -- An unusual name...but welcome to Arkers anyway.  Looks like you are
off to a good start. -- Sensei Jan

Fellow Managers -- I was under the impression that intentional killing was frowned
upon here.  If this is true, then I must assume that Assassin Nation is the local
pariah.  No offense to your "style" Ghab, but I believe the three-fold law applies.
-- Michael Eldritch, mgr. Penumbral Mists

Extinguish -- I'd watch your back.... -- Gladiators of Penumbral Mists

Marshmallow -- Big metal plate hurt!  Try again? -- Malborgia

Satanic Smurf -- I thought you had me.  Thanks for the lessons. -- Mythia

Zinger -- Whew!  my endurance isn't THAT good.  Well fought. -- Morngrym

Zippery -- You certainly know how to TAKE a blow. -- Bgaz Redclaw

Elixir -- Bet you thought you had that one clocked eh!  Your team doesn't have much
luck against us. -- Thundar the Cruel

Inochi -- I'm too old for fighting anymore, we'll leave it to little hotties like
you. -- Sasha Bal Tor

Vertigo Pirate -- Yawn! -- Max Von Scum

X force -- The shine from your coffin was the only thing that dazzled me. -- Ol Griz
P.S.  I'm tougher to stop than a tank.

Loki -- I remember hearing someone say go.  Nice work. -- Ugly Kidd Joe

Feordis Ink -- Not as tough as my manager wants though. -- Thundar the Cruel

Penumbral Mists -- You are most welcome in our fine city, welcome.  It's a tough
place though. -- Maximillian, manager of Northern Badlands

Blackstorm -- I fully intend to mess with you, methinks you better be a little
concerned. -- Maximillian

All -- Say good bye to Sasha Bal Tor.  A rather large girl with a wonderful figure
of:  14-19-14-8-21-6-14.  Her original numbers were:  12-16-14-5-21-5-11 burnt so
heavily due to much maintenance.  She graduates with only an expert in parry,
couldn't learn to save her life. -- Maximillian

Michael Eldritch, mgr. of Penumbral Mists -- Your diplo received.  Yep, that's me--I
use the manager name Leeta in the Andorian arenas and Jorja in the Free Blades
arenas, including Noblish Island.  It is my duty and pleasure to be helpful to new
managers, and I will answer any questions I can.  As you will notice, I'm going
inactive in this arena, however, a diplo addressed to the Middle Way (no number) by
way of Noblish Island arena will always reach me, or simply one to Scribe, no arena.
There are other managers here in Arkers who will be glad to advise, also; I would
specifically suggest Smithsonian, for one. -- Leeta, the Middle Way
P.S.  Yes, the delay in processing your census sheets is, unfortunately, normal.  The
person whose job that is has eleventy-seven other jobs with people screaming at him
to "do this one first!"

Lady Macbeth -- Well, what could you expect of a man named Beth? -- Jernig Mars

Azaziel, Death's Chosen -- How odd.  You seem to be afflicted with a "stealth team."
I'll check into this. -- Desthvan, arena steward

Blackstorm -- Once I get my writing table cleared off, I will do you, and also Liam
the Goth, a splendid story.  But if I tried to cram another storyline in now, it
wouldn't be as good.  In fact, none of them would be as good.  I've been spread too
thin.  Sincere apologies. -- the Scribe

Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
Our newest Dark Knight disrespected?!?!?!  ARE THEY SERIOUS?!?!  If at all possible,

clerics, and quick-handed thieves to begin a quest requested by the Emperor of the

10 July 2006
The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
Knight.
     AS OF JULY 1, 2006 -- WAR IS DECLARED ON THE ALLIANCE KNOWN AS THE VENDETTA
CARTEL.
     The Desolate Empire -- Dark Knights:  Ancient Creep, Blackstorm, Dok Sik, Goat,
Heathen, Hatebred, Kon, Osiris, Toker, Wasby the Great
