                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     The Drunken Swordsman was pack beyond capacity.  It is rare that Raymond Cobb
turned away customers but there just wasn't any more room.  The cause of the
overabundance of thirsty customers was the storm raging outside.  It started four
days ago and would not relent.  The first couple of nights had been dead.  Everyone
had decided to stay in their homes where it was warm and dry.  But after four nights
of it, the citizens became stir crazy and braved the down pour to have a pint and
socialize.  One of the customers joked that he was thirsty and came here for a drink.
Ray's head waitress, Matilda Thistlewaite, said if they were truly thirsty, they
would just poke their heads out of a window and open their mouths.  Ray laughed at
the joke until his face turned as red as a beet.
     Raymond Cobb was a retired member of Arker's city guard.  One would think that
after decades of dealing with the city's riff raff like thugs, thieves, and drunks,
the person would simply go off into the sunset and spend the last few years resting.
Perhaps playing with their grandchildren and filling their little heads with stories
of the guard.  But that wasn't for Ray.  He had never married, nor did he have any
children.  So, of course grandchildren were out.  And it seems resting was out too.
After only being retired for a month, Ray found himself back at the recruiting
office.  No one thought he was serious about wanting his old job back.  At first they
thought it was a joke, but when they realized that he was serious, he was quickly
pushed out the door.  Feeling humiliated, Ray headed back to his modest apartment.
Before he got home, he saw that the Maiden Pub was for sale.  At first Ray was sad
that the old pub was going up for sale.  Then the idea hit him.  Ray ran home and
locked the door and shut the shutter.  He then pulled a lock box from under his bed.
The lockbox wasn't anything spectacular.  It was 24"x12"x8" in dimension.  It had
metal bands and hinges that were the light yellow of fake gold.  The front had a huge
lock.  Ray had forgotten about the lock.  He stood up and went to his small
bookshelf.  He chose the third book from the left and opened it.  Pressed in between
the pages was the key.  In his years on the city guard, he noticed that most people
carried the key to their valuables on their person.  After being robbed and beaten,
the unfortunate victim returned home to a ransacked house.  The thieves had stalked
the victim and learned where he lived.  So, even if they didn't know that there was a
safe box there, they did know that all of their keys they carried must go somewhere.
     Ray opened the box and inside was five Andorian eagles.  Ray could never have
earned that much in his entire career.  He came by them when he and his shift made a
raid on a local brothel that was allegedly robbing customers.  It wouldn't have been
a big deal except one of the workers got greedy and decided to rob a wealthy and very
influential merchant.  The merchant in turn reported the crime and demanded that it
handled.  Discreetly of course.  No need for his wife to find out what he was up to
on the nights he was supposed to be out with his friends.  During the raid, while the
owner was being restrained, Ray saw a stack of eagles the brothel owner had been
counting.  They were in stacks like little golden towers.  It was so easy during the
confusion to rest his hand on one of those towers and palm it.  Slipping into one of
the other rooms gave him enough time to drop them in his pouch.  Ray had never had a
moment of weakness like that before or after.  Fortunately, that moment of weakness
allowed him to buy the Maiden.
     The Drunken Swordsman had also become the favorite watering hole of the Chosen.
Tonight, the entire stable was at their favorite table raising glasses and
remembering their fallen team mate.  Shikari was a complete enigma.  She was an adult
who acted like a child.  She was also a warrior who could not finish an opponent when
she had him on the ropes.  Her one victory was a complete fluke because she didn't
realize that she actually hurt the guy.  When she got the news that she was going to
the dark arena, she just laughed.  It was as if Longshot had told her the king of all
jokes.  He tried several times to explain the seriousness of the situation.  But she
just laughed some more.  What was even weirder was that she was beating Moutnain
Troll.  But in the middle of the fight, she just stopped.  That gave him a chance to
actually hit her.  The rest is history.  The first time Longshot laid eyes on her, he
felt she didn't belong in the arena.  But the Gladiatorial Commission allowed her to
sign up.
     A group of eight drunk and happy customers said their farewells and bundled
their cloaks tight to reduce the amount of rain drenching their clothes.  They then
ducked low and ran out into the night.  Drunken curses and laughter could be heard as
they made their way home.  But before the door could slam shut, one lone figure ran
in.  His soggy black cloak clung to his body as the water ran down it and onto the
worn wooden floor.  The man pulled back the hood and looked around the crowded room.
His stomach rumbled at the smells of the food being brought to various tables from
the kitchen.  He would fill his belly once he finished what he came here to do.
     He wasn't a very imposing figure.  He had a full red beard and long red hair
that he wore in two braids.  His blue shirt was soaked and clung to his body.  The
man moved to the table where the Chosen were sitting and talking.  Ocean was the
first to notice the man walking up to their table.  It didn't take a genius to know
he was making a bee line to them.  Ocean put down her glass of wine and nodded to get
Longshot's attention.  Longshot stopped drinking his ale and turn to see what was
going on.  The man walked up to the table and turned all of his attention to
Longshot.
     "Are you the manager of the Chosen?"
     "Yes.  I am." Longshot replied.
     "Pleased to meet you, sir.  My name is Pyrat Ironforged.  I want to apply for
this position."  The young man then placed the soggy bill on the table.  It was so
battered by rain that most of the ink had washed off.
     "Her body isn't even cold yet.  Why don't you buzz off.  You vulture." Ria said.
    "My apologies, sir.  But a man has to eat.  I figure this was the best way to do
it.  I meant no disrespect."
     This got a stifled laugh from Porta.  He loved when people mistook Ria for a
man.  Lionik didn't like it at all.  Ria was his girl, after all.  To comfort her, he
placed his hand on her shoulder and gave it a light squeeze.  Pyrat was surprised
when Longshot introduced Ria to him.  He immediately apologized.  Ria waved away the
apology.  She had heard it all before.  She took a long drink from her mug and held
it up for a waitress to refill it.  Longshot stopped the waitress and asked her to
bring back two.  He had seen how Pyrat had eyed their empty plates when he sat down. 
He waved over another waitress and ordered a big bowl of the stew that was cooking.
The waitress came back with the stew in a wooden bowl and a big hunk of bread.  Pyrat
immediately dove into the stew.  He ate as if he hadn't had a good meal in weeks.
     "What is your story?" Longshot thought as he watched the man wipe the bowl with
a piece of bread to get the last of the stew.

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  PEASANT REBELLION now holds the crown and they are betting they can 
keep it.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at 
STAR HUNTER, who went down to 7th from 11th.  Life is tough.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for SPARAFUCILE, who flew up 29 points in the rankings after mashing ZINC like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
FIELDER, who dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
KOTTER NAHL.  Drawing on all of its experience as a 19-12-1 warrior, ALAMO went for 
the Duelmastership against IMA SLAYER this week.  It's a proud day for the 
SMITHSONIAN stable, as their warrior, ALAMO, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out 
of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARKERS arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid STAR HUNTER, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does ARKERS really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause PEASANT REBELLION beats feet every time STAR HUNTER smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of LELAND OLVEN, who 
was this week's most challenged warrior.  Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic 
fans was PENNY, who was successfully challenged by PORT-A-FORTRESS who had a mere 23 
points more than PENNY.  Definition of petty:  PORT-A-FORTRESS defeated PENNY, a 
mismatch of 23 points.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARKERS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Crusher -- If you get smarter you won't fight me anymore. -- All the best, Dingo

Virtuous Scribe -- After our fight one of the other chaps in the stable said you were
an "NPC."  Well, I don't care if you are a nose-picking cowboy!  So, "scribe," write
this down:  "Dear Diary, today Dingo kicked my butt!" -- Best wishes, Dingo

Ria the Caresser -- This has got to stop.  It's getting us nowhere and it's not good
for either of us.  I'm avoiding your team this turn as a courtesy.  Good luck. --
Pain Magnet

Silent One -- I wouldn't say anything either. -- HoD

Shiftyeyed Volunteer -- Congrats, that was the shortest fight for any warrior in any
of my manager's stables.  Way to quit. -- TV

Good to be back to an arena where an old-time skilled warrior (read: sandbagger) is
Duelmaster. Congrats to Khisanth and his Ima Slayer from You Pay I Slay. -- Curator

Lionik -- Why don't you like fighting The Middle Way clans?  Are they mean to you?
Are you losing lots?  Do you think Jorja is devious?  Don't they teach you skills?
Curious minds want to know. -- Curator

Peasant Rebellion -- Nicely done with your record and that massive 59 point turn!
Kudos. -- Curator

Leland Olven -- Chalk up one for Davy Crockett and gang. -- Alamo

Omerta Loel -- Just like old times, eh? -- Plymouth Rock

Pitchfork Kid -- You sure showed me, youngster!  Well done.  I salute my betters. --
Mayflower (plugging all the new leaks from pitchforks)

M. Chardinee and Virginal Concubine -- We both appreciate you.  Haven't we always? --
Iwo Jima and Yosemite

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Curator

Ima Slayer -- Now I know what I am up against.  Let's try this again. -- Port-A-
Fortress

Penny -- Do you have a death wish? -- Lionik

     Are you in the market for one?

Sweet revenge -- Why you little runt!  Do I have to get Lionik to box your ears? --
Ocean Size

Curator -- Welcome to Arkers.  I have had the pleasure to pit warriors against Mino
and the Finance Manager.  After seeing who you are managing here, I fear you will not
give up any wins to my warriors.  But, the Chosen will do their best. -- Longshot

Orville Rouse -- You guys in the Middle Way are afraid of big women?  But that just
means there is so much more to love.  :) -- Ocean size

Shewish Bistro -- Sounds like a meal that bites back.  I am not even going to get
into the gas.  Welcome to Arkers anyway.  :) -- the Chosen

Curator -- Good to see you back. -- Jorja

Ocean Size -- I always do badly in the dark. -- Orville Rouse

Lionik -- Sometimes in these small arenas, it's us or the standbys.  We generally
teach better. -- Leland Olven for the Middle Way

Ria -- You're such a delicate little thing, I hesitated--too long--to hit you. --
Orville Rouse

Plymouth Rock -- I hate beating my head on a rock. -- Imerta Loel

Fielder -- And between you and the Alamo (how could we forget, eh?), that makes an
oh-fer turn for us.  Bummer. -- the rest of the Middle Way
