                             Notes from the arena champ.

Sir Comference -- At least Waldo stuck around long enough to see the big chair graced
by a fighter with some grace.  Finger sandwiches all round.  And no roughhousing
during the performance, boys.  (what native dancers?)  Senor Pravalonni has come all
the way from the mainland to grace my investiture as Duelmistress with one of his
inimitable tenor solos.  To ensure the proper tone of civility and graciousness
permeates the hall during my swearing-in ceremony.  (*ack* naked native girls!)
After which you're all invited down to the cove to hear renditions by the Kolact
orchestra performing on the floating bandstand.  I mean, <ahem> floating...
orchestrastand.  (I don't care if it IS tradition, get those hooters covered)  With
the evening being capped off by attending a midnight balloon release when the full
moon rises over the open ocean.  A rollicking good time, eh?  Real cultural. --
Wanda, Duelmistress

                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for PERSEA QUELL, who 
flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this gal.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was THE MOONDOGS' CYNICA, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
WANDA.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the KOLACT arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  This week 9-7-1 MOTHBALL was 
sent to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take 
notice of this.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very 
important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in KOLACT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Cynica -- You can never have too many offensives, I say.  Unfortunately IIIIII'm not
running the squad.  So although I'm the perfect basher type, the brain trust is
searching for a fighter with a tad more variety.  They got the Kraken foisted off on
them and he makes me look positively waste-ish, so look for more personnel shuffles.
-- Mothball

Nestor Ordh -- Well, no right-thinker would ever confuse me with an "extra"
offensive.  My kind just doesn't fall off the street corner, you know. -- Dawn

Icarus -- Winning is cool, but it pales in comparison with the news that I'm a model
for the future.  Whiiiiich means...I don't know, more of the two and three minute
kind hereabouts.  My kind don't ya know. -- Buffalo Bob

Mothball -- You know, there's probably a game in there somewhere.  But does one throw
mothballs, or hit them with sticks, or what? -- Cynica

Dawn -- Way too early to get up, as you can tell by the fact that I nearly died of
it! -- Nestor Ordh

Dangerous Criminal.  (sigh)  Never a good match for anybody. -- Persea Quell

Persea -- Oh...I don't know.  I did rather well out of it. -- Lirvel Moorn

Buffalo Bob -- (red-faced with annoyance)  I am NOT one of your "buffalo gals"!  Stop
grabbing me and swinging me around! -- Icarus

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
