                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sure, sure, sure, you want to know something.  You think because I am Duelmaster
that I know it all, and you want, as my loyal subjects, me to share some of my vast
knowledge.  So being the wonderful ruler that I am, I shall, indeed, impart
something.  I will reveal to you the "birth stats" of the current Smithsonians.  Yes,
you are very welcome.

I trust this information is valuable to you, my loyal subjects.  I am expecting you
all to work the fields that much harder to pay the additional taxes for this
information.

     Your Beloved Duelmaster, Lady Macbeth

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARKERS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, YAKUZA, but BLOOD RITES 
was just too good to be stopped.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, 
but PENUMBRAL MISTS really goofed with their 0-5-0.  What was the name of that team 
who got 5-0-0 this turn for a total 19-11-1 you ask?  (Sure)  BLOOD RITES' their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for OL' GRIZ?  NORTHERN BADLANDS' proud 
of him after beating KISERU and getting 45 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
NYTHIA's match with KIK BAKET OW TOE cost her a loss of 8 points!  
V.BALTIMORE-'W.BALT thinks his 23-26-0 and studly character is good enough to face up 
to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  This Duelmaster is like something else!  LADY MACBETH 
stopped V.BALTIMORE-'W.BALT dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said 
ARKERS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  ORCISH IDIOMS was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 44-18-3 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why 
SMITHSONIAN's been avoiding ORCISH IDIOMS so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?  Can LA PENTARCHIE's V.BALTIMORE-'W.BALT be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  OL' GRIZ of NORTHERN BADLANDS wasn't planning on killing KISERU, I bet.  
Now he has to worry about being Bloodfeuded, and getting put on lists...  It was kind 
of sad, seeing old WARPATH stumbling around the arena, before BLACK WIND finished him 
off.  Oh well!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

All -- we hope and trust you all did well in the Mailer.  Do Arkers proud!  Health.
Humility.  Honor. -- Curator

Ol Griz -- Not bad for an elderly hairy warrior.  Not bad.  Perhaps in the next
millennium? -- Lady Macbeth

Perky Pam -- You are such a cutie and so submissive that I could really, really use
you on the war bond tour.  (wink) -- War Bond

Marshmallow -- Did you have to kill The Swamp Fox?  We really needed him for the
rebellion.  Did you smother him to death in his sleep?  Was this necessary?  The
Smithsonians will miss the 17-6-7-15-9-9-21 BA +3 attack, +3 parry.  Shucks. --
Curator

Blackstorm -- It is a pleasure to have you back. -- Curator

"Curator, I agree with the Ghost of Haga Kobb I was 0-5 with 5 recognition points and
challenged a 3-0 with 20 recognition points and was accused of down challenging.  Did
I?"   No, you did not downchallenge.  Indeed, you upchallenged from 5 to 20
recognition points.  Your challenge would be appropriate by any Andorian standards.
-- Curator

Dwarf Fire Hammer -- Salute.  It is getting so that I have no zippety-doo-dah left.
Yikes! -- Zippety

Rabbit -- Get a little zip in your step or the tale of the tortoise and the hare will
always haunt you. -- Zip

Gingnia -- In the immortal words of the Beach Boys...
Bar bar bar, barb, barb a ran
Or Senator Mccain
Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb I ran
Or good ole me.....
Zan Zan Zan, Zan Zanzibar

Orcish Idioms -- Congrats on the top team spot.  I WANT it! -- The Z Man

La Pentarchie -- Bgaz Redclaw just seemed like a lovely, romantic name, that we
supposed it was French.  See?  It was a form of ironic humor--unless it really is a
beautiful, endearing French name.  See? -- The Z Man
P.S.  Michael Eldritch--it was a "funny", eh?

Leviathan -- Sorry for the loss of Dreya.  I await your coming BF. -- Crimson Mist

Skunk -- I would like to say you stink but alas you did win. -- Blackheart

Sun-We -- It's all about endurance.  You go too fast, you end up falling on your face
eating sand.  Maybe next time. -- Blood Stain

Sun-Pe -- I was doing all right until you crushed my nuts with that hammer. --
Deathwalker

Bull Frog -- You have a very big croak, my friend.  Ouch! -- Unholy Terror

Imber Lack -- Oh well , ya win some and ya lose some, I guess.... -- Chaos Invader

Rock Hut Glass Fun -- Now that was just plain nasty!!  What the hell, kinda
mismatched to say the least.  But , I think I have your number.  (evil grin) --
Blackstorm

Husk -- ????How did you survive that?  Whoa! -- Yor D.

Burps Fire Hammer -- Ow, ow ow...nasty little critter are we not? -- Outlaw

Illmarn Nailo -- You have been rather unlucky of late, feel free to chat up my boss
on strats and such. -- Black wind

All -- Sorry for any lateness and absences, I should be back now on a regular
schedule in 8-28- maybe 31-54-81-83-106. -- Blackstorm

Malborgia IV -- Darned golem! -- Kerbin Notts
P.S.  I almost wore you out, though!

Lin Minmei -- You'd appeal to me more if you were shorter and more cuddly.  Think you
could work on that? -- Feordis Ink

Chaos Invader -- Ah?  So, are you saying that this place and time is chaotic enough
to be worth invading?  I can't prove you wrong, because in an orderly time-place *I*
would have won that fight. -- Imber Lack

Aeryn Sun -- Do your teammates call you a whale?  Listen, babe, you're petite.  Trust
me on this. -- Morg Potts

Aroura -- Weird name, hard to spell "correctly."  But I do like a feisty little wench
with a sense of humor and no regard for the canons of spelling.  Somebody after my
own tastes, you know? -- Indior Landis

Lady Huntsman -- What're you doing writing columns HERE? -- Bigfoots

Curator -- That's what I thought.  I was down-challenged to death.  (sigh)  Being
dead isn't so bad, though.  I don't have to fight, after all. -- Ghost of Holga Kobb

Kylun -- So, is my offense improving? -- Morngrym

Ugly Kidd Joe -- Heck of a way to die...'broken and alone'.... -- Bgaz the Ghost

Sohei -- You know, I am beginning to wonder just how lucky I am.... -- Nythia

Kerbin Notts -- Perhaps your name should be Pine Knots.  After all, you're as tough
as one. *shrug* -- Malborgia IV

Ruby Pendant -- Bgaz sends his regards, and a reminder to HIT your opponents.  *wry
grin*  Sweet dreams. -- Oniromancer

War Bond -- It's not the name...it's the 'rebuilt' thing. -- Malborgia IV

Blackstorm -- Team enroute to 47 under name of 'Force of Will'.  Now what?  Let me
know what to do once I get there.  I've deactivated my 31 team, and may stagger Morya
as well now that the slow no-tourney is on, I've got a normal hp/endurance triple
expert there!  See ya around. -- Michael Eldritch

Curator -- Swamp Fox will be missed.  We salute him. -- Gladiator of Penumbral Mists

Ghost of Despayre -- It seems we'll pass the Gate together.... -- Ghost of Bgaz
Redclaw

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
