                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Munchies, I'm astonished, I truly am.  Honored, as well, and for whatever brief
period I bear this title, I will do my best by it.

                                        Kepler

P.S.  Munchies, I trust that helped your "underskilled" problem?  I did my best.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of KOLACT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain in 
KOLACT, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--THE MENTORS.  TOWNSVILLAINS after a sorry 1-4-0 might want to consider 
abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing 
works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as QUBIT can 
attest...  SIR AGLIO posted a nice gain, to come in 3rd.  Everybody loves a winner... 
The boys at DEVIL'S ADVOCATE are walking tall, as they are ranked 8th on their first 
try!  Going for the Duelmaster soon?  Well, BLOODSHED, you can show this to your 
parents.  But you'll have to do better than 2-3-0 if you want your names in this 
space again...  THE MENTORS' TOY BOX had cause to celebrate, after STRAP ON got 29 
points by beating SIR PRISE.  SIR PRISE certainly had a baffled expression on his 
face, after losing to STRAP ON and losing 42 points in the process!  Like a 
flirtacious debutante, KOLACT's Duelmaster KEPLER found himself the man of the hour, 
being "invited to dance" 5 times!  The arena was more crowded than usual this time, 
as SHYLAYLA MINOR faced KOLACT's Duelmaster.  KEPLER successfully staved off a grab 
for the roses by SHYLAYLA MINOR of PRAETORIAN GUARD.  Does KOLACT have no one 
talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in KOLACT is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of TERRAPIN STATION, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, SIR AGLIO scurried away from TERRAPIN 
STATION.  Oh, the shame!  CLEO found herself challenged by a warrior 21 below:  
NEVENGAR.  NEVENGAR of MEGAWARRIORS kept his wits as he overcame CLEO.  My love of 
complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, SIR INGOMYELIC and 
RAVAGE.  Are SIR AGLIO unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought SIR INGOMYELIC 
showed great skill and promise when he subdued RAVAGE.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in KOLACT would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an 
overtaxed simile, I now bid KOLACT farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex
