     "Yoos da bigges orc I eva seen!" exclaimed Eadskar.  He walked about the massive
specimen of orchood standing before him.  They were in the team's guild house when
the orc before them banged on the door.  Eadskar DaBad wasn't a small orc by a long
shot, but this newcomer was huge!  He had biceps that looked like tree trunks and a
strong, broad back and chest.  He stood a little taller than Eadskar, and didn't have
the short spikey hair the leader of the clan had.  His beard was fashioned in a
Mohawk that he had dyed a dark red.  Eadskar squeezed the orc's bicep and continued
the inspection.  The orc endured the inspection and looked straight ahead.
     One of the many human slaves that worked for the clan rushed in with a silver
platter.  Upon the platter was a carafe of red liquid and a goblet.  The servant's
face was covered in bruises.  It looked like he had been in a fight and was on the
losing end.  One of his eyes was swollen shut and his lip was cracked and bleeding.
Eadskar stopped the inspection and stalked over to the slave with the platter.
     "I told yoos ta bring white wine.  DA WHITE!" and he let loose with a massive
backhand that sent he slave to the hard wooden floor.  The carafe shattered and
spilled the red liquid onto the floor.  The battered slave slowly picked himself up.
He was staggering and quite shaken from the blow.  He spat a wad of bloody spit into
the spilled wine.
     "And clean dat up!" Eadskar screamed.  Three youths ran into the room with a
bucket of water, towels, and scrub brushes.  They frantically began to clean up the
spill.  They were cautious of the broken glass and dropped the big pieces onto a
separate open towel for later disposal.  The battered slave picked up the silver
platter and headed back to the kitchen to find Eadskar's white wine.  Eadskar turned
his attention back to inspecting the new prospect.
     "Yoos definkly da bigges orc I eva seen."
     Gutsag interjected, "Yoos sed I wuz da bigges orc ya eva seen."
     "Nuh uh," Stonewall corrected him in his childlike fashion.  "Eadskar said that
you were the FATTEST orc he had ever seen..."  Stonewall turned to the others for
confirmation, "Isn't that right, guys."
     They all nodded in agreement.  Gutsag looked indignant as he struggled to pull
his blue tunic over his ample belly.  This was an impossible task considering his
belly also hung over his belt.  At that moment, the slave returned with a goblet and
a new carafe with a liquid that had an amber hue on a silver platter.
     "Wat iz dis?!?!?!" Eadskar yelled as he rounded on the slave.  "I told ya ta
bring red wine.  RED WINE!!!"  And once again he back handed the slave.  But this
time, the slave did not fall.  He simply bowed, muttered an apology, and hurried back
to the kitchen.  The child slaves were grateful for the adult not spilling anymore
wine onto the floor.  They had just finished cleaning up the last spill and needed
fresh water for their bucket.  If Eadskar caught them using dirty water to clean the
floor, they would get the same fate as the adult server.  They had finished cleaning
up the mess from earlier and hurried off to empty the bucket of the dirty water.
     Eadskar rubbed his chin and turned back to the orc.  "Yoos wanna join ar clan?"
     The orc silently nodded. 
     "Wat's yoos name?" Beckah asked.  She found the orc very handsome.  She still
loved Eadskar, or Eady as she affectionately called him.  But this brute would make
nice eye candy around the guild house.
     The orc looked over at Beckah.  He thought she was very attractive, but it was
obvious that she belonged to Eadskar.  So, he knew nothing would happen between them.
In this brief amount of time he had learned that Eadskar had a knack for cruelty.
The way he treated his servants was a perfect example.
     "Ma name'z Mosh." The orc replied in a rich baritone voice.
     "Mosh," Beckah repeated.  Even the name sounded strong.
     "Mosh, yoos in da clan" Eadskar said.  "Jus don git killed like Glassjaw.  If
yoos live, der ar great riches.  But if yoos die, we drop ya outside the city in the
land fill like Glassy."
     Despite his callousness, Eadskar was still upset over the death of Glassjaw.  He
couldn't understand how he died.  The deceased member could take a maul shot to the
face, laugh it off, and chug a tankard of ale.  This wasn't an exaggeration.  They
had done that after a night of heavy drinking.  Plus the troll wore plate armour
during his matches.  When he did that, he was a juggernaut.  But suddenly he showed
up to a fight with only scale mail.  No one knows why he did it.  Eadskar
specifically told him to wear plate against Star of Destiny.  Glassy was probably
showing off and paid the ultimate price.  It didn't matter now.  They had this guy.
If fortune was with them, Mosh would bring several victories to the stable.
     The slave returned with the silver platter.  Eadskar instinctively turned to
yell at the battered man.  But he stopped in his track and he was at a loss for
words.  In the entrance to the room stood the battered slave with a rebellious smile
on his battered face.  On his silver tray was a goblet and two carafes; one contained
red wine and the other white.  Everyone laughed at the slave's ingenuity.
     "He gotcha' der, Eady." Beckah taunted
     "Oh yoos a cheeky one," Eadskar bellowed and punched the slave full on in the
face with one of his ham sized fists.  The slave went flying onto the floor with a
crash of silver, glass, and wine.  Eadskar, furious at being mocked, began to punch
and kick the slave mercilessly.  The defenseless slave could only curl up in a fetal
position and protect his head and vulnerable parts.
     "Dis one is crazed.  I need ta watch 'im," Mosh thought as they watched the
beating.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wonderful!  The throne AND my invite to the Isle!  It's great to see Arkers is
still a lively arena and I will keep on following what happens here from the Isle.
Unlike many others, I do not see immortality as fighting forever, I'd rather enjoy
eternal life just taking it easy.  Of course, nothing prevents me from a fight here
and there when I need to expel some bad vibes, but hey, we'll see that in due time
anyway!
     Okay, so I am one of the original members of the Weird Alchemy stable.  I'll
join Globulizer in the Isle (and watch her fight from the stands).  Hyppomatos you're
the last one of us originals here!  Watch your step, old pal!
     Ria the Caresser, my last challenge is for you, we have danced often, let's do
it one final time!
          Good luck to you guys!
               Cyclotubulus, Duelmaster of Arkers

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARKERS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at BROKEN SPIRITS' 
guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 9th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week BLOODY HAND CLAN went 2-2-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  DINGO MCGEE 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
HYPPOMATOS and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, EADSKAR DA'BAD put down DEFENSIVE LEE, causing him to lose 15 points 
of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the 
challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster CYCLOTUBULUS himself.  Who 
here was not present for the title fight this week as RIA THE CARESSER boldly 
challenged CYCLOTUBULUS in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  The city has 
turned out in honor of RIA THE CARESSER, for with hers arena victory she may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  ARKERS, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is SMITHSONIAN, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding SMITHSONIAN.  Indeed it was WEIRD 
ALCHEMY.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of HALIN STORMBREAKER who this 
week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  I 
thought HALIN STORMBREAKER showed great skill and promise when he was subdued by 
MAILICE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My condolences to SERIOUS LEE for their 
loss of a very promising warrior, CASUAL LEE.  CASUAL LEE went to doom before the 
arms of DEMON TALON, a warrior of STEEL PROPHETS.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She 
showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember 
this!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARKERS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Demon Talon -- Keep up the good work.  Keep challenging.  I take easy wins.  I do. --
Mr. Z (for Zoo)

Cyclotubulous -- I hate your long name, the difficult spelling, and the loss to you.
You are Lava soap in disguise! -- Zest, not a soap, but would be a quality one.

MOST CHALLENGED?!?  This is so unexpected!  I don't even have a speech prepared.  And
all this time I thought you didn't like me. -- Defensive Lee

Stonewall -- Aren't you a little short to be a Shewish Giant? -- Defensive Lee

Avaricious Lee -- Much better performance this time.  Let's see who wins the rubber
match. -- Avaricious Lee

Roca the Blaze -- Meow? -- Casual Lee

Kotter Nahl -- Perhaps you should try 'Hooked on Skills'.  How do you think Porta got
his invite? -- Longshot

     Personal charm.

Moving Torg -- Well, you weren't moving much at the end of the fight. -- Wail the
Rager

Curator -- Thanks.  We are just trying to bounce back. -- Longshot

Dingo McGee -- Don't feel bad about the loss.  My record is very misleading.  Given
four of my losses are from Pain Magnet, but if you knew what skills I know, your head
would swim. -- Ria the Caresser

Cyclotubulus -- Congrats on the invite.  Now go keep Zephyr company. -- Longshot and
the Chosen

Bash Bros Shower - Looks like he forgot more than his towel. -- Halin Stormbreaker

Out of Soap -- Yep.  That is exactly what you smelled like. -- Eton

The Rough Riders -- What is "FR & HW"? -- Longshot

     Forgotten Realms and Hyborean War, two other games run by Reality Simulations.

Whew!  Only five dead today, so we're safe.

Curator -- A number one attraction should be getting PAID for it. -- Kotter Nahl the
under-appreciated

Mayflower -- I do even worse if I'm IN water. -- Leland Olven

Longshot -- I dunno, bourbon?  Never moved me much.  A little nip of elderberry wine,
now, that might be something else. -- Imerta Loel

One-three.  Drat. -- Kotter Nahl, for the Middle Way

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

Defensive Lee -- I don't like you.  You hit me too hard.  And I don't care what the
crowd says.  I wasn't crying.  Nuh uh.  Not me.  It was sand in my eye. -- Stonewall

Cyclonizer -- Yoos pretty fast.  Maybe nex' time? -- Beckah Necksnag

Star of Destiny -- Dat spy master is a idiot!!!  You did not savagely kills Glassy.
