                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I guess I shall give The Face another try.  My only past experience there, as a
brand new rookie, resulted in a respectable 5-3.  (outclassed 2 LU, AB, PR, ST--but
lost to TP's!  Go figure.)  I'm better prepared for those scumbags now, as my
personal trainer, Mr. Barry Bonds, has been bulking me up.  I appreciate his advice
and help.  I shall travel to the face by boat, as Santa Maria, also participating, is
giving me a ride.
     I am amazed that young, poetic me, with only 19FE, has already acquired all I
need for Lord Protectorship, but the 14 wins in 20 fights.  Can I make it to the
Isle?  Or does death await?
             Lord Byron, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARKERS games.  There were bitter words at ROUGH 
RIDERS' guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
11th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week CONSANGUINEOUS went 2-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  CRIMSON MIST caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested HAMMURABI and was awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, CRIMSON MIST put down HAMMURABI, causing him to lose 23 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has LORD BYRON in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ARKERS these days is ORCISH IDIOMS.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of SMITHSONIAN are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  IMBER LACK take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ARKERS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  This week marked the last days of BLACKHEART who 
at 5-9-0 was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of BLOOD RITES' demanding 
management.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARKERS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

A salute to Lord Byron, Duelmaster and Poet Laureate! -- The Z Man

Unholy Terror -- Egads!  You sure showed me!  I thought I could zip, but instead I
fought like zip. -- Zip

Meerkat -- I fought at my epitome.  I was ON!  You could say it was my......Zenith

Kerbin -- Those Zeniths of old were beauties!  Not much sells on quality like it used
to anymore, eh? -- Zenith

Feordis Ink -- I am a lilac fan, myself. -- Zinger

Imber Lack -- Another lucky day for me. -- Lord Byron

Sir Martin -- Thank you for keeping my perfect record intact.  I must say I was
amused at the fight description--luckily in one?  Two offensives?  Hmmmmm. -- Santa
Maria (off to the Face where she can win!)

Blackheart -- Thank you for your contribution to the war effort. -- War Bond

Morg Potts -- That was a great fight.  Apparently it was time for luck to go my way.
Whew! -- Pearl Harbor

Michael Eldritch -- You are on the right track to finding "favorite weapons".  We
determine (try) ours by criticals per swing and keep records, by weapon by warrior,
of crits/swings/EVAs (extra value hits).  There are a larger variety of related
factors, but crits per swing is the best empirical evaluation we know.  And, yes
indeed, a fave can be one which the gladiator is not fully stat-qualified in. --
Curator

All -- I fight blind this turn, as the Grinch stole my turn this past holiday.  My
face-to-face mini-overviews seem to imply an impressive turnout, so hopefully the
gods of RSI will deem me worth of a replacement report soon.  I apologize in advance
for tactical errors on my part, as I will be posting challenges, but am not certain
of current rankings.  Fight well, my friends, and hopefully I'll be out of the dark
soon! -- Michael Eldritch

Rock Glas Hut Fun -- Looks to me like you misspelled the first word in your name:  it
should also have been a three-letter word:  Rok.  Yes, no?  I could find you some
glass huts that would benefit by the application of a rock or two, if you need a
stress-reliever. -- Feordis Ink
P.S.  Why aren't you listed as an orc?  Another case of the Commission not being able
to see the nose, or in this case the tusk, on your face?

Consternation -- I didn't know dwarves worried about stuff like that.  I mean,
underground, in the dark, who can tell? -- Kerbin Notts, honestly curious, but not
very very curious, only a little curious

Malborgia V -- I was asking around, and People Who Should Know say that the climate
on Malborgia IV is actually better.  Not perfect, a little hot during the summers,
and there's that sulfurous wind from the major volcanic zones, but still, better than
V where it's all ice and icy seas.  Maybe you should consider moving. -- Indior
Landis

Lord Byron -- Wow, me in a title fight.  I am so impressed with myself, it's amazing.
I don't know how I can stand it, but I guess I'll just have to try not to blind
people with the radiance of my presence.  They'll have to look the other way.  You
could make a start, set an example for them, by looking away from me during our next
match.  True, this will make it hard for you to land a successful blow or parry mine,
but some things come with a price, and you'll just have to pay it. -- Imber Lack

Pearl Harbor -- Wow, did you suck up the skills, or what?  I kinda like a smart
woman, seems like that's the kind I should want to support me during my retirement,
right?  Let's get together and explore the possibilities, chickie. -- Morg Potts
P.S.  Gotta love those island beauties.

Zinger -- You're all heart. -- Feordis Ink

                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....
