                             Notes from the arena champ.

Go Way!!!  My poor Missy Lamb is unavailable.

Oh!  The scandal that's rocked the Hoy-Paloo.  Direct Heiress to the Up fortune,
Melissa "Sunny Side" Up, who recently reached her age.  Her father, "Admiral"
Bracegirdle Up, Admiral of the Kolact Yacht Club, having lavished expansively to make
her coming out party the blue-blooded social event of the season.  A delicate,
emerging flower of Kolact's Creme de la Creme...this vision...a common sand-fighter.
Albeit, for the moment, the best sand-fighter...the key word is common.  Oh the
shame, the fan concealed whispers, the ignominy of it all.  Will the Up Foundation
survive?

*On*the*Sly*  I've it straight from (uncle) "Sir" Bosley Up that between cigar puffs
and brandy snorts, the Admiral's quietly bursting his bracegirdling buttons.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KOLACT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The SIR AGLIO 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.  KOLACT welcomes a new 
team to our ranks, unofficially of course, for now.  But welcome nonetheless to WAY 
OF THE SWORD A1.  Let's see what you can do.  And let's see, TORLEC fought CREEPY DOG 
and gained 26 points and contributed to WAR HAWKS' 1-3-1.  LENNY BAXTER has lost to 
SIR PRISE, falling 13 points, while helping make TOWNSVILLAINS a 2-3-0 turn.  This 
week's Duelmaster bout was between QUONSET and our Duelmaster SUNNY SIDE UP, making a 
challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SUNNY SIDE UP 
remains KOLACT's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that Don Corleone's uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the MONGREL HORDE stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KOLACT, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding MONGREL HORDE more than any other team we find SIR AGLIO.  KOLACT, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was THE MOONDOGS' warrior CLEO.  More fighters challenged her than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  QUICKSAND of QUBIT had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 9 points in a challenge which he lost.  I thought QUICKSAND showed great skill 
and promise when he lost to KEPLER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  SPRINGBORN has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your 
fighter, BATTERING BETTY, who had a record of 3-1-0?' Hearty mugs of ale were raised 
in KOLACT today as CREEPY DOG was bid farewell to a 11-6-0 warrior, with TORLEC of 
WAR HAWKS standing silent and pensive.  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KOLACT and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in KOLACT again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

All -- Ha-cha!!  Finally the guildhouse's day to day affairs are being tended to.
She says it's time to clean house...okay by me.  U-reek-A...well none of us's been
smelling too good, s'part of the problem, but that's all changing.  Her name's Gracie
and she has a hard head and a soft heart...caring/non-caring, easy-going/in-yer-
face...she's got one of those new fangled attitudes which're all the rage with the
younger-sters.  [An in dire emergencies she kin hit an m-over hi C what'll make da
wax run outten yer ears A.] -- Still, the distiller

Felicitas -- What's, oh that's it, we talks the same language...unlike a certain
beach-comberette you kept down till we had her moved on. -- G. Greta

Battering Betty -- I don't like to be battered like that. -- Cal

Quicksand -- Shall we go another round? -- Torlec

Grandiose Greta --You will just have to make it to Home Guard for us to fight again.
-- Lord Protector Angar

Hoffa -- Something tells me you're gonna be most avoided. -- Sultan, wimpin' out
P.S.  How DOES he know?! -- Inquiring Minds

Floyd -- Despite my efforts, it seems you've been able to graduate Jesus Chrysler
after all.  Gonna tell us about him? -- Sultan, curious

Still -- You?  Get cast aside?  Never!  And just to show you, I thought I'd throw
some challenges your way. -- Sultan, ever obliging

Hoffa -- A little tourney practice for you godlings? -- Sultan, envious

Hotta Watta -- You're as bad as Hoffa's Hair.  Sheesh. -- Kepler

Quasimoto -- You unnerved me with your precision. -- Tycho
P.S.  And the way you sucked up the skills.

The Hand of G-D -- That's what happens, sometimes.  But the way you learned, you'll
be doing better in no time. -- Luna Moth

Missae -- Whatever happened to "make love, not war"? -- O. Procellarum

Sultan of Swing -- You have a good rhythm... if one likes it slow.  But some like it
hot. -- Cleo

Clamshell -- Well, I wish that one of your shots had gone a lot FARTHER, maybe hit
somebody in the stands, instead. -- Tycho

Sultan -- Or you could make him Irish: Sir O'Gate. -- Galileo

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
     More info:  Master Darque, MasterDarqueDM@aol.com, or Jack Wolfspider,
russtulp@aol.com.  Or diplo Darque Forces (428) or Dynastic (433) in Arena 45.
