                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Ocean and Ria were sitting in the living room of the Chosen's guild house when
Porta stuck his head around the corner and peeked in the room.
     "Excuse me ladies.  May I have a moment of your time?"
     Upon seeing Porta, Ocean turned so that he could only see the back of her head.
Which was odd because she essentially turned away from Ria as well.  Ria was sitting
directly across from her.
     "C'mon, Ocean.  Don't be like that.  I just wanted to show you ladies my
impression."
     Ocean turned slightly towards Ria with an inquisitive look.  Ria returned the
look.  Porta had gotten their interest.
     "Okay.  Let's hear it." Ocean said.  She turned so that she was facing her team
mate.
    Porta clapped his hands together with excitement.  He had a big grin on his face
as he reached behind the entrance to the room.  He then pulled out a wooden scimitar
and held it by the blade.
     "Okay.  Who am I?"
     Porta then made the face of a buffoon.  He let his mouth hang open and crossed
his eyes.  He then started making "Duhhhh" sounds.  When he spoke, it sounded like
his tongue was too thick for his mouth.
     "Duhhhhh... I is Zork.  I oh lee tay dis unsh.  Dat is only b'cause dat the
highest I c'n ca oont!  I not be ere nex tine b'cause I sandbagged my way to a title
and I shood na' be ere fighting yous regular guys.  Challenge me at yor on risk; I
don ave dees."
     Porta then holds up his hand and begins to count, "Un... uhm... eeee... many
kills fa nothin'!"
     Porta then starts swinging the wooden sword by the blade and making the "Duh"
sound.
     Ria could not control herself and let loose a boisterous laugh while holding her
sides.  Ocean could only face palm.  She honestly wanted to laugh, but she knew that
laughing would only encourage him.  Ocean composed herself and looked Porta directly
in the eye.
     "You're going to get yourself killed.  Did you read the personals?  They hate
you.  HATE YOU.  You got the most challenges in the entire arena.  There are 53
warriors in the arena.  Three teams didn't fight.  Do you realize how many people
hate you?  I am willing to bet good money that every Champion and Challenger Champion
was gunning for you."
     "And what happened?  Zest got his wish and I beat his lame butt.  They can't do
anything with me.  I have faced their lord protectors without fear.  Maybe Pyrat's
preaching has gotten to me, but those guys are not worthy to call themselves
warriors.  Ima Slayer, Ura Goner, Yosemite, and now Zork.  Mantor the Bright would be
ashamed of them and their way.  And they talk about how Arkers is so great?  It was
an injustice to let Seam go by the way side and keep this dung heap.  They'll get no
respect from me."
     Porta then grabbed his things and walked out of the door.  The guild house was
suddenly silent and incredibly uncomfortable.  Ria debated with herself if she wanted
to head up to her room or sit here with Ocean.  She had promised herself that she
would stop staying in her room mourning the death of her lover, but this was too
awkward.  Just then the door the guild house opened again and Pyrat walked in.  The
tension was impossible to ignore as he walked by the room.  He asked if everything
was okay.  It was a gesture of kindness.  The look on Ria's face and the scowl on
Ocean's told him it wasn't.  Ria filled him in on what had just transpired.  She
finished by telling Pyrat about the wooden scimitar he bought to do the impression
with.
     "He didn't buy that scimitar for a gag." Pyrat said.
     "Yes he did.  He just showed us his joke." Ocean replied.
     "No.  That was for practice.  He hired a really big guy at the Drunken Swordsmen
to be his sparring partner.  You might have seen him.  He is a big guy with a clean
shaven face.  He looks like he has had his nose broken several times; it kind of lays
at an angle.  Porta offered that monster five jer-hawks to swing a wooden scimitar at
him while he practiced his parries.  He is preparing for a rematch against Zork."
     Ria mouth hung open in astonishment and Ocean had a look of terror on her face.
     "He's dead.  That idiot is committing suicide." Ocean said.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Of course, as expcted, here I am again.  Not only am I now a repeat Duelmaster,
but I am also an immortal Lord Protector.  One more fight and on to The Big Time.
     Imerta Loel, you were a good match; I am simply the better warrior.  I respect
you more than I do that scumbag whiner Port-o-Potty Mouth.  Ah, but his antics
sometimes make my day.
     You are all wondering what the magnificent Zork is made of?  Well, I am proud to
offer you my fine physicals:
9-9-12-15-17-9-13 slasher
good endurance (bonused) and good damage
18-7-3 arena, no tourneys, 2 DM Titles
skill learn rate of 2.63
Master Init & Attack; Adex Riposte; Expert Decise
Weapons?
     best is SC @ 36-109-21, 2 kills
     others 6-20-0, 1 kill
Read 'em and weep, I tell you.  Read 'em and weep.
     That brings us to my last words in Arkers, and I will make this simple, succinct
and memorable--"I feel wonderful and I AM wonderful."
                          Zork, DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARKERS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  THE BRETHREN stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 4 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The STEEL PROPHETS 
guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, IMERTA LOEL fought IWO JIMA and 
gained 25 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 11's 2-2-0.  IWO JIMA has lost to 
IMERTA LOEL, falling 39 points, while helping make SMITHSONIAN a 1-2-0 turn.  
PORT-A-FORTRESS challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone Z 
GLADIATORZ's warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, ZORK kept THE CHOSEN's 
warrior, PORT-A-FORTRESS, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the THE CHOSEN 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARKERS, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding THE CHOSEN more than any other team we find WEIRD ALCHEMY.  ARKERS, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that MAYFLOWER from SMITHSONIAN was ARKERS' most challenged warrior this turn.  PAIN 
MAGNET from STEEL PROPHETS took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 27 points 
in a challenge against HYPPOMATOS.  And whaddya know, PAIN MAGNET beat HYPPOMATOS, 
and the fighters of STEEL PROPHETS were last seen lifting frothy pints of ale in 
honor of PAIN MAGNET's 22 point gain.  In a brave attempt, BLUE FLAK from STEEL 
PROPHETS challenged up 23 points to fight MAYFLOWER from the SMITHSONIAN stable.  
BLUE FLAK perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was beat by MAYFLOWER and ended 
up with 44 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Anyone care to tell me why the warriors of TRIAL BY COMBAT haven't 
revenged the death of KAZANDRA KRUEL against PYRAT IRONFORGED of THE CHOSEN yet?  
Hmmm?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You 
know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, ARKERS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARKERS and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

    "...even the Duelmaster may avoid the team that holds their closest competition."
Ummm....  No.  Second title lost after my strategy doesn't work.  Duelmaster means
nothing.  That is so Arkers. -- Port-A-Fortress"
Uh, Port-O-Potty, what is THAT all about? Was it a moan, or are you whining again? --
The Z Man, Z Gladiatorz

Port-A-Fortress -- Well, I have to give you kudos.  You withstood my challenge and
showed you are my better. -- Zest

Torchbearer Tom -- Perhaps you would have had more of a chance if your weapon were
lit? -- Zephyr

     The Fire Marshal said he couldn't do that.

Imerta Loel -- Well, what did you expect.  I AM The Duelmaster, and I AM good. --
Zork, DMII

Hey, not bad.  Not bad at all.  My Z Gladiatorz go 2-1 and bring me another
Duelmaster Title.  I feel good! -- The Z Man

Congratulations to Zork for his repeat Duelmaster crown.  Well done. -- Curator,
Smithsonian

Pitchfork Kid -- It was MY day to rebel, and I planted my flag.  It feels mighty
good. -- Iwo Jima

Pugachev -- I told you those Marlboros would make you sick! -- Lucky Strikes (LSMFT)

Pyrat Ironforged -- You need to work out the rust and then perhaps you will win.  But
not today. -- Mayflower

Sweet Revenge -- Well, you got it and I can only give you praise.  Well done. --
Plymouth Rock

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Curator

Curator -- I apologize for this.  But Porta says, "I can't reply to you anymore.  I
have vowed not to speak to the help." -- Pyrat Ironforged on behalf of Port-A-
Fortress, the Arkers Dream

Hyppomatos -- I really thought I had a chance against you.  That'll teach me to get
cocky. -- Ria the Caresser

Zork -- Quiet, sandbagger.  You can't brag or act tough.  You didn't earn that title
so much as you just did the same tactic that most of this silly arena does.  I'll try
to make it simpler for you: My record is 20-8-0.  Five of my eight losses were from
lame warriors who hung out in tourneys until they had to fight their equals.  There
is nothing impressive about your wins. -- Port-A-Fortress, the Arkers Dream

Jorja -- I try to dispatch my opponents as honorably as possible.  If they happen to
die at my hand, so be it.  But if that is the way you run your stable, who am I to
disagree. -- Pyrat

And remember, kids, you're not fully lame unless you are ZESTfully lame. -- Port-A-
Fortress, the Arkers Dream

Pain Magnet -- I guess you aren't allowed to fight any of the jobbers.  Here is a
hint; you don't always have to fight someone from our stable. -- Ocean Size

Z Gladiatorsz?  They should be called the Z Sandbaggerz. -- Port-A-Fortress, the
Arkers Dream

Mayflower -- Heh.  You still barely beat me old man... er... thing.  I'll try not to
be so zealous next time. -- Pyrat Ironforged

Zork -- By the way; I didn't avoid you out of fear.  I avoided you because I
suspected you of being like most of the lame warriors in the top tier of this arena.
-- Port-A-Fortress, the Aruaki Dream

Iwo Jima -- Imagination?  I don't think that's in my contract. -- Leland Olven

Our congratulations to Zork. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

An oh-fer turn, a last fall of snow, the power flickering, not going to gallop into
personal personals tonight.  To all we fought, good fight. -- We Who Fought You
