     Guardian, Guardian, Guardian...you bloody bastard.  You are the bloodiest
bloodletting bastard of them all.  A goblet of blood be raised to your gore-
bespeckled bloodiness...wait a moment....
      Thought you were pretty gory scary didn't you.  Well, now you've got to share
the crown with another bloody bastard.  MORIAN killed OXLY RHINCUS 5473, giving the
manager of Angels of Death some bite behind his stable name.  Well done.
     Otherwise, 7 non-DA deaths last turn, not bad there, it's up a bit on average I
think.  Keep up the good work; it seems the stew we gave you a couple of turns ago
worked wonders.  A diet of stew should be adopted as the standard for all hard-
training warriors....

Istoreth, Skaithvarn:

     The guards hustled them away from the waterfront and up a steep street to the
next level of buildings.  They weren't hostile or aggressive toward their charges,
but it was plain that they meant to be obeyed.
     Raoul cocked an eye at Berdan, who was walking next to him and breathing a
little heavily.  "You know who this Lord Dankilvan is?  What his position is here in
Istoreth?"
     The ex-assassin shook his head.  "Not to be sure of it.  Istoreth is ruled by a
council of lords, and I suppose he's one of them, but...I don't know which one."
     "Looks like we'll find out soon," Jeri remarked as the leading guards turned
through a gateway.
     They passed through a courtyard lined with small evergreen trees that had been
pruned into the shapes of fantastic creatures.  The building beyond was large and
foreign-looking.  Windows and doors had pointed tops and elaborate fretwork filled
with sly faces around them, the columns of the portico were shaped like tree-trunks
and done with such care and detail that it was possible to identify the type of tree
used as a model.  They were hurried through halls so filled with rich-colored carpets
and rich-colored tapestry wall hangings and richly inlaid furniture made of rich and
exotic woods that everything became a blur, a sort of visual indigestion.  Only the
occasional detail penetrated the dazzle:  an exquisitely curved vase the color of the
sky in a dream that stood quietly in a niche, a single white rose lying on a table, a
statue of a slim dog like a miniature greyhound that suddenly stood up and stepped
toward them, ears cocked curiously.
     They came out on a terrace that looked over the harbor and the Trier Sea beyond.
There were trellises of roses, and overhead screens to make shade, a fountain
rippling and flinging rainbows into the air, and benches, a table, a decanter of wine
and several glasses, and Lord Dankilvan.
     It was impossible to guess his age.  For one thing, he looked like having a lot
of elven blood.  High elven blood, the kind that was tall, thin, and blond, Araoi.
After the extreme richness of the furnishings in the house, he was dressed with
surprising plainness.  Silk, of course, but subdued in color, maybe gray or some
grayed shade, it was hard to tell because it kept changing subtly in the changing
light, but plain.
     Raoul noticed that the guards didn't follow them onto the terrace.  Either this
man was very trusting, or he figured he could handle any trouble they made.  It would
make a difference which.
     "You declared yourselves Andorian when you docked," he said.  "Very well.  Tell
me about this man Peranis and what he is up to."
     "You met him?" Berdan asked.
     "He...approached me.  With a book he wanted to sell.  I have books of my own and
did not desire his.  He became angry.  Desperate, too, I think.  What is he doing,
what is he likely to do if pushed to it?"
     "He's making trouble," Raoul said flatly.  "He's a renegade assassin--"
     Dankilvan's expression chilled.  "Any trouble Andoria gets into because of its
foul Assassins' Guild is well deserved.  But I will not have you drawing Istoreth
into it."
     "We're trying to prevent that," Raoul said quietly.  Was there any point in
telling this man that King Mickeal had outlawed the Assassins' Guild?  Probably not.
After all, it had been outlawed once before and had come back.  "We want to catch
Peranis and destroy his book."
     "Not keep it for your own use?"
     "No."
     Dankilvan was silent for a long moment, one hand resting lightly on the stopper
of the decanter.  Raoul noted that the stopper was formed from some kind of crystal
as full of rainbows as the falling water and wondered if it had magical properties.
Finally the Istorthene said, "I turned this Peranis from my presence once he had said
his piece.  The other Lords of Istoreth, advised by me, gave him no hearing at all.
Eventually he was ordered to leave the city as a pernicious nuisance.  He did leave.
There was no boat departing for Alastari at that time, and a man answering his
description passed out through the south gate and took the road to Leemith."  An
expression of distaste passed across the Istorthene's face.  "They may have met his
demands in Leemith.  The Leemin are capable of anything."  With emphasis, he
repeated, "Anything."
     Raoul sighed.  "Then I guess we follow him to this Leemith place.  Can you tell
us anything about it?"
     "I can provide you with an escort who has some knowledge of the place,"
Dankilvan said.  "We employ Alastarians here--gladiators--for special jobs.  I offer
you a Delarquan woman, Hallie O'Dene.  You will find her knowledgeable, and reliable.
If you can bring yourself to work with a Delarquan."
     Before Berdan could utter the protest Raoul saw developing, the gladiator said,
"I'll work with anyone who can help me get the job done."

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Take a look at me, pudly Aruakians!  Take a look at number one!  One fine,
colorific Duelmaster!  Me--Red Hot!  Me--the best in all Aruak City.
     Little Doc's One Wolf isn't here!  Not good enough!  Baby wizard Harry Potter
didn't make it here.  Couldn't cut it!  Bow wow Kennelworth's little doggies didn't
make it.  Out doggin' it!
     So where are all you pansies?  Invaders, you couldn't cut it?  Couldn't whack
it!  Defenders, how you gonna defend if I'm on top?  Twerps!  Shrimps!  Pussy cats!
Tweety Birds!  Buncha peabody Invaders, Defenders and whatever.
     So get a load of The King of Aruak City--Red Hot.  Yeah, baby!  Lord Protector!
The Champion with the most!  I've got what everybody wants!  Primus material.
Gateway Great!
     Take a look....
Strength     15(+3)
Con          21(+3)
Size         12
Wit           8(+3)
Will         21(+3)
Speed         4(+1)
Deftness     18(+2)
     Makes ya want to shiver, doesn't it.  Godling extraordinaire!  And my "faves"
are to die for.  Very Low/Low/Decise/Large Shield.  And I have that one all important
rating--expert parry!  Yeah!
     So I'm leaving Aruak City once and for all.  Maybe I stop at the Halloween
tournament on the way to the Isle.  I'm clearly an odd-on favorite for the Freshman
T.C.!  I'd ask you all to wish me luck, but I won't need it, because I am just
plain!...

                    Red Hot

P.S.  Get the booze out at The Bulldog Inn, Adie.  I'm gonna run it dry!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Perhaps it is BULLDOGS members' intannibility that enabled them to move 
from 13th to 2nd last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of francium 
heaved into a wet pond, G1 AUTOBOTS blew up the rankings to 41!  Managers were 
muttering after VELVET GREEN showed ARUAK CITY what they could do:  3-1-0 to move up 
by 17.  Perhaps it is GERFEL'S FRIENDS members' intannibility that enabled them to 
move from 29th to 7th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of 
francium heaved into a wet pond, SINCE YOU'RE GONE blew up the rankings to 16!  
Perhaps it is ANIMAL FARM members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 44th 
to 10th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Managers were muttering after DEAD 
DOC TOADS showed ARUAK CITY what they could do:  3-2-1 to move up by 16.  Perhaps it 
is SNUGGLE BUNNEES members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 37th to 12th 
last week...  (Less time in the sun...) The boys at NIGHT'S GUARDIANS aren't the 
happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after suffering a 11 drop last week.  
Rumor has it an incurable disease has swept the stable of NEVERWAKE.  Note their drop 
in the rankings from 2nd to 16th.  Watch out!!!  Thinking about sending their team 
manager to the Dark Arena is U.B.O.S.M., after suffering a 12 drop in ranking.  Like 
a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, WOLFBROTHERS blew up the rankings to 21!  
The boys at COLORIFIC aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after 
suffering a 11 drop last week.  Perhaps it is SHADOWS members' intannibility that 
enabled them to move from 58th to 24th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Rumor 
has it an incurable disease has swept the stable of CANNIBALZ.  Note their drop in 
the rankings from 15th to 30th.  Watch out!!!  The boys at ELFQUEST aren't the 
happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after suffering a 23 drop last week.  
Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is BEAVERS ARE FOR, after 
suffering a 24 drop in ranking.  Managers were muttering after CHIVAL-R-US showed 
ARUAK CITY what they could do:  3-0-0 to move up by 29.  Perhaps it is TUFT TUGGERS 
members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 46th to 35th last week...  
(Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS blew up the rankings to 17!  The boys at SCARLET KNIGHTS II aren't the 
happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after suffering a 26 drop last week.  
Rumor has it an incurable disease has swept the stable of GRYFFINDOR HOUSE2.  Note 
their drop in the rankings from 35th to 47th.  Watch out!!!  Perhaps it is INGROWN 
TOENAIL members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 61st to 48th last 
week...  (Less time in the sun...) Managers were muttering after SKASMONAUTS showed 
ARUAK CITY what they could do:  2-1-0 to move up by 14.  Thinking about sending their 
team manager to the Dark Arena is YA GOTTA WINCE..., after suffering a 18 drop in 
ranking.  The boys at DRAGON JUNKIES S.S. aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know 
and love, after suffering a 16 drop last week.  Rumor has it an incurable disease has 
swept the stable of KRILL CAVALRY.  Note their drop in the rankings from 50th to 
64th.  Watch out!!!  Good things come to those who fight well, as FISH MONGERS III 
can attest, moving up by 5.  Ready for a laugh?  DRAGONS TAIL fought their way to 
attain a 0-4-0.  Perhaps they had best lay off the tavern-hopping!  BULLDOGS had 
cause to celebrate, after B.S. got 25 points by beating KAHVI.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, SAVOLDELLI was winsome, after beating NUBIAN GOD and seeing him 
lose 14 points.  Duelmaster RED HOT from COLORIFIC is going for the gold, as she 
challenged YOUNG JUSTICE's SECRET.  Ooh, the excitement!  RED HOT successfully staved 
off a grab for the roses by SECRET of YOUNG JUSTICE.  Does ARUAK CITY have no one 
talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team in ARUAK CITY is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of SEER KING should take up 
some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of DEAD DOC TOADS, so did that sorry team shy from SEER KING 
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and DUMB ROCKY is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't KRILL CAVALRY proud!  As a confidence booster, GOLDEN 
MOMENT challenged RICK DERRIS, down 31 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in 
your spare time, GOLDEN MOMENT?  Yes, Virginia, sometimes the little guy wins, as 
RICK DERRIS proved, beating 31 point higher GOLDEN MOMENT.  SUMTHING PAINFUL found 
himself challenged by a warrior 25 below:  BLACK OUT.  BLACK OUT of COLORIFIC kept 
his wits as he lost to SUMTHING PAINFUL.  Mismatched by 12 points, MOLTEN METAL lost 
to JUGULAR.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought JUGULAR showed great skill and 
promise when he overcame MOLTEN METAL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  I hear JACKAL of 
NOBODYS tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a priest.  KILL STEELE of 
DEAD DOC TOADS saved him the effort of getting references.  Sober up, young warriors, 
and take note of CRUEL INTENTIONS' fate!  SILASH of ANGLES OF DEATH handily did him 
in.  Experience counts for something on ARUAK CITY's sands.  Death (in the form of 
B.S. of BULLDOGS) knocked on KAHVI's door.  What will ELFQUEST do?  The suspense is 
killing me.  More than one waitress at The Victory Tavern was spilling more drinks 
than usual last week, as CHOPSTICK SURGEON's early demise became known.  What will 
GERFEL'S FRIENDS do???  Fair play must not be a credo of ANGLES OF DEATH, as MORIAN 
permanently removed BRIN SAUGER of FISH MONGERS III from the competition in a 
mismatched fight.  Does SHAOLIN-ISH care so little for their fallen comrade, 
BARMAID-PALMS-TIP?  DONT KILL ME was heard at The Victory Tavern sneering...  Justice 
was served as BODEL fought #1 STUNNA in bloodfeud.  Well done, MANIC MARVELS!  Never 
one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see GERFEL'S FRIENDS 
retaliate against BEAVERS ARE FOR in bloodfeud!  Charity is unknown in ARUAK CITY, 
and rightly so.  SNUGGLE BUNNEES exacted their revenge against OLD BOYS CLUB.  
Justice was served as DRACO fought DOMINOE in bloodfeud.  Well done, ANGLES OF DEATH! 
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     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 ARUAK CITY farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Rillion -- You are right, no one told me how I will run in Aruak, but the fact of the
matter is when I said that I will run how I want on the round table I WAS told that
the whole arena would be after me, or anyone else that ran in Aruak.  You speak of me
and my alliance mates as brainless, I will tell ya what, I would much rather be
brainless (which I am not) than someone who babbles constantly about nothing to make
you feel better about yourself, I mean what do you think that because you and a
couple of other defenders can downchallenge from the top of the board to the bottom,
that you actually are going to make everyone leave, well you can rest assured that
though I am not totally consistent on fighting every turn that I will be here, and
here is another thing, I do not really care for the warriors that I run in this arena
as long as they do their jobs I could care less.  And yes I mentioned the FIRM in my
last personal because anyone would be a fool not to come with back up into such a
hostile arena that this one has become.  It seems that I along with the rest of the
Firm are not the brainless ones here. -- Youngblood, the FIRM

TigToad -- Yes I am very aware of Rillion's alliance and could possibly care less.
And here goes, Toad, I see what you are trying to do and it is not going to work, so
stop preaching and start fighting in the war that has already begun. -- Youngblood,
the Firm

All -- Well, I have FINALLY gotten some things straightened out, and I will now
return to the game.  Granted, I'm sure I wasn't missed all that much, but I must say
I missed the start of this wonderful brawl, and I plan on being here for the
remainder of it.  So thank you my adoring public, I look forward to fighting along
side of people that I thought I'd never be able to in basic, and killing as many of
your glads as I can. -- Apex

Generalissimo Puerco -- Despite what you believe I am doing, I am not holding Fur out
because of your bloodfeud.  Turn before last Fur missed due to an input error.
Besides, I doubt you got anybody who can beat him....  And for the record, there is
no "Big Beaver" only I. -- Sylvester Frothingslosh

Morian -- Lucky for you all my guys are PUDS.  Will send a couple your way to BF and
Prove it. -- Ghoti

Kennelworth, Doc Steele, Assorted Frothingsloshers -- Please consider this message to
contain various abrupt statements about how much I like being with the defenders.
It's late, I'm tired, and I don't have much time for personals this cycle. -- TigToad

Leeta -- Thank you.  I'm usually a lot more pleasant, I guess this place brings out
the worst in me. -- TigToad

Cosmo F -- I have no problem downchallenging those who offer downchallenges.  It's
not assimilation, it's self preservation.  When all the teams that are breaking
tradition leave, I will have no one to downchallenge and such challenges will stop.
But I will not handcuff myself in the face of such opposition.  You knew that though,

Ghost of Wonder Girl -- You smell that!  Do you smell that?!  Smell my finger!!!!! --
Dirty Sanchez

Nouveau Necron -- I am guessing if we try that in a few turns that things will turn
out vastly different. -- Snaggles

Icy Trousers -- Hope you enjoy four turns of bloodfeuds. -- Kellumbo's Kids

Scary Ghost -- Had to go and ruin our winning record didn't you. -- Detective
Kellumbo

Q.O.W. -- I have seen some very contradicting information in fights about the ability
of armor to slow down a warrior.  BAs running in plate, and jumping a PS running all
out decise with no armor says a bit to me.  But in general, excluding those
exceptions, I have found the lighter the armor, the easier it is for a warrior to be
fast.  This of course excludes the input of decise skills/rating, tactic(s) used,
weapon used, style suitability to tactics (theoretical), and running at or near
favorite rhythms. -- Adie

Alfredo F. -- You'd be amazed at the stuff former Duelmasters have requested to drink
for their free one at the Bulldog.  From beer, to saki, to pomegranate juice, to who
knows what Carny's warriors ask for!  Just ask for the 'special selections' menu for
the weird stuff on the Bulldog tap.  The servers at the Bulldog are all holdovers
from the earlier days when Kennelworth ran the place, and they are all locals just
earning a living.  The Bulldog is a professional business.  We expect as much from
our employees as from our guests.  I didn't realize the 'Sloshers had opened a
brewery.  I'll have to mark it on the Aruak map! -- Adie

Mino -- I will pass on your wishes to Khazakh.  He is currently in Andor as Captain
of the King's personal guard.  I assume drink to your liking is strong and we have a
good selection of such at the Bulldog.  I am sure Kennelworth would be more then
pleased to have you drop by! -- Adie
P.S.  Welcome to Aruak.  Unfortunately, you will only find the ocean downstream at
the mouth of the Cat's Eye river.

Leeta -- I didn't know you thought that way.  Come to think of it, I haven't seen
anybody like that in Ghea.  Are same sex unions common?  Not that I'm interested, but
thank you for the offer.  ;) -- Adie
P.S.  Chemical induced cataracts?  Sounds like you need to gun down them cropdusters.

Connor Macleod -- Cool name, an excellent fight.  The veteran was too tough for you
though! -- Zlatina

Don't Kill Me -- I didn't. -- Branford Hawke

National Brand -- Is that anything like, 'Made in the USA'? -- Eliza

Strategery -- Your feeble fumbling, even on your own disreputable downchallenge, only
make me laugh despite having such pity for a lowly wretch like you. -- Kalidor

Skasmonauts -- Welcome to the cause Defender.  May you find Aruak a home most
irresistible, and more welcoming when it finally returns to what it once was. --
Tankesh

Sungod -- Ok, how about...your record sucks!  Oh wait, that's not new material!
However, if I qualify that with "It's even worse than mine!", that's new! -- Tankesh
P.S.  For something truly new, we agree on the pitifulness of the RUGS.

Cosmo F. -- It's one thing to try and kill everybody, and dishonorably downchallenge
everybody.  It's a completely different beast to only do that to those who do it to
you.  Think of it like having pacifists, police, vigilantes, and criminals in Aruak.
The pacifists are those who will never DC or intentionally try to kill.  The police
won't do it either, but go out of their way to inflict losses, especially in
bloodfeuds.  The vigilantes do all of that, but only to the criminals.  And the
criminals do it to everybody, regardless.  If you can't see the difference between a
vigilante and a criminal, I feel sorry for you. -- Tankesh

Alfredo, Sungod -- I will agree with you that people find all sorts of reasons to
quit, but I still contend that some reasons are not acceptable (as we already
discussed, Alfredo).  As for the greater value we put on life in Andoria (one of the
"problems", I am assuming), I do not believe the authorities would choose to wipe out
death in the arena altogether if it was possible.  While the existence of the arena
contests in Andoria was contingent upon the dark arena being a theatric spectacle,
and not truly lethal, few of us would support an arena system that allowed any
warrior who kept coming back week after week to eventually become a Protector,
without the possibility of an untimely death. -- Generalissimo Puerco

Q.o.W. -- Weight, in general, slows a warrior down.  Some styles seem more affected
than others (i.e., some are slow, regardless...). -- Generalissimo Puerco

Fur -- Nice to see you decided to not sit out the bloodfeud. -- Generalissimo Puerco

Congrats to Red Hot, the Duelmaster and new Protector! -- Generalissimo Puerco

Sumthing Painful -- Congrats on the invite.  Best of luck on the Isle. --
Generalissimo Puerco

Talkhis -- Would you believe...the flash blinded me?  Or maybe I had the sun in my
eyes.  I dunno, I was too confused. -- Kedro

Polyester -- Gad, it was PINK! -- Nila Sundancer

Sephiroth -- I'm surprised Rocky could teach you that much.  We don't call him "dumb"
for a joke. -- Leeta

Crow Bar -- Imagine what you could do to a crow!  Scary thought. -- Kip Hardee

Puerco -- No worries.  Nice to hear someone other than myself actually READ the DM
Columns.  I really enjoy Iaye, but it's become quite the lonely place of late.
Therefore I gotta do what I can to keep the locals entertained. -- Angus

Red Hot -- You must be under the impression that downchallenging is something special
here.  Before you break your arm patting yourself on the back take a look around and
you'll see the majority of managers are DCing for one reason or another.  You won and
your buddy there, Golden Moment, won all set up for me.  Kudos.  You da man.  Someday
the roles will be reversed and I'll be the one sniping from way above when you've
already long forgotten about us.  Welcome to Aruak City. -- Rick Derris
P.S.  Good luck in AD.
P.P.S.  Nice trick there...losing a 50 point DC and only managing to lose 5 rec.
points?  Now THAT is talent...or maybe FE...I always forget which.

B.S. -- No offense but we're all really sick of seeing you over here.  By the way, do
the udders ever get in the way? -- Angus

Purple Passion -- No really, get up. -- Crissy

Shucks, One Wolf, guess you just weren't enough to slow down the true Duelmaster. --
Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific

Rick Derris.  The Rick Derris.  The losing Rick Derris.  The didn't-have-a-chance
losing Rick Derris.  Thank you, loser, for providing me another golden moment. --
Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific

Prism Eyesbrite -- One of us had to luck out.  Salute! -- Black Out

Hey, I made the "hot list"!  Thirty most wanted list!  Kill me and save Purple People
Eater a $7 cash pile!  He'll be glad you did. -- Black Out

Alfredo -- The pleasure was all mine. -- SunGod

Rillion -- The inputter made an error in your p-ad to me, so I will be kind enough to
clarify the original wording for you now..."That is why the "Defenders" are
hypocrites. -- Rillion"  There, that's much better, yes?  No need to thank me for the
correction, I'm here to help. -- SunGod

Rillion -- Regarding the deaths here in Aruak City.  You can stand by your position
all you like, whatever helps you sleep at night. The fact is this...T-473 9 kills, T-
472 7 kills, T-471 10 kills.  Obviously your math skills are less than adequate so I
will add the numbers for you; 10+7+9=26 kills in three turns.  That is a significant
amount of kills in any arena, no matter the size. -- SunGod
P.S.  You should really proof-read your ads before you have them posted.  It would
make it tougher for me to continually make you look silly.

TigToad -- Keep your wits about you, Toady.  Rillion is falling.  There is nothing
you can do to stop that.  Is one victim not enough?  Would you make yourself a
casualty in your efforts to save your fallin' alliance-mate? -- SunGod

Hey, Persiaria!  If you are truly one of the "good guys", I apologize. -- Onyx Owl

Shiver me timbers, Kahvi!  Ye be bloody good, landlubber.  Here be atchee! -- Mino

Scrumtrilescent, another win for The Defenders.  You and your girlfriends are easy!
I think I love it! -- Khaki Kangaroo

Yo, Slothingfroshers' Blimey!  Ye be lookin' bloody fine on yer carpetbaggin' knees!
-- Mino

Congratulations, Red Hot.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn.  Congrats, too,
on your Lord Protectorship. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Gee, Guardian, I didn't realize you were hurting inside so badly.  I will pray for
you.  Yes, your jadedness is a well known characteristic, but I believe that if you
try, you can overcome it.  Good luck, old-timer. -- Kennelworth

Alfredo, my fine young fellow, it was the arenas that were eliminated, not the
warriors.  The arenas, the body and soul of basic Duelmasters.  So sad. --
Kennelworth

Skasmonauts -- I wish you luck in your honorable quest. -- Kennelworth of Bulldogs,
Defender

Adie -- What is this "light beer."  How can good beer not be heavy? -- Kennelworth

Congratulations Lord Protector U.B.O.S.M. -- Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

Iron Magru -- I salute your intensity. -- Beef Bullion

Nubian God -- I guess that was simply too much b.s. for you offenders? -- B.S.
Bulldogs

Pernak -- Thanks for the challenge.  I like giving losses to you offender-types. --
Dog-Tired, Bulldogs

Dreihdensmurf -- Sorry, pal. -- Hushpuppy -- Bulldogs

All (as in warriors, not 4476) -- A contest that has no end has no winner.  The
contest does not compute. -- Telatran One, manager of G1 Autobots

War Mongers All -- The personal grudges of you few have only shown that both sides
have given little thought to how fellow players may wish to play the game.  One side
forces other players to play by guidelines they have chosen.  The other chooses to

punish all players for the acts of a known few.  We have come here not to out right
kill defenders or invaders.  We G1 Autobots have come to play the game with the rules
as described to us. -- Team G1 Autobots

Club Hammer -- May condolences on the loss of your new warrior.  I shall lower my
enthusiasm circuits from moderate in later bouts.  I await your feud. -- G1
Windcharger

Chaste Ranger -- Good fight, kid.  If I got better gas mileage we could have danced
another round. -- G1 Iron Hide

All -- If I was a Decepticon, I'd propose a contest where I list names of warriors
I'd want to avoid.  Giving incentive for other teams to challenge this list, whom
they would not normally, thus giving my challenges a better shot at going through. --
G1 Hubcap
P.S.  Or I could have my paranoid circuit crossed with my logic circuit.

Kip Hardee -- It's not in my processing matrix for small talk during a fight.  Well
fought, I guess. -- G1 Bluestreak

29 September 2003
All -- Let it be known that the Firm accepts SOL into its ranks.  The Firm is:
SunGod, Dark Spirit, Youngblood, Tripwire, and SOL.
