Greetings, warriors of Aruak City.  You have earned yourselves a break on this
festive day we call Thanksgiving.  We'll be back next turn with a continuation of our
menacing and infamous Frothingslosh Murder By Numbers action.  Use your time off
wisely and well, for it shall be the last time off you ever get.

All hail Biff --
The Fronthingslosh Syndicate

Skaithvarn:

     The Lord Dankilvan had given them temporary quarters in his mansion.  A suite
among the servants, but that was okay, the decor was less overpowering.
     Berdan looked around at the nearly plain hangings that covered the walls of the
central room in the suite and scowled.  "I don't like this," the ex-assassin growled.
"Sequestering us!  This Dankilvan is up to something."
     Raoul shrugged, took off his hat and looked at it, then put it back again.  The
gesture didn't mean anything, but it gave him time to think about his answer without
being rude.  And he was really tempted to be rude.  Berdan was repeating himself.
And the gladiator was getting tired of repeating his answer.  But one more time...
maybe it would get through this time.  "Lord Dankilvan is trying to keep Skaithvarn
out of Alastarian politics.  Can't blame him for that!  We don't want that
entanglement, either."
     "He's sending a Delarquan spy with us--"
     "A Delarquan gladiator who may or may not be a spy.  So?"
     "She'll be a spy.  Everything we do will be reported to this--"
     "Are you planning to do something you want to hide?" Jeri Northwind asked.
     Berdan jumped a little, having forgotten that she was there.  "No, but--"
     "Then it isn't a problem.  In fact," she exchanged a glance with Raoul, who
nodded slightly, "in fact, it's a good thing.  It means the S'varni won't have to
worry about what we might be up to, because they'll know what we ARE up to."
     "Right, doll.  And besides, better the spy we know and can see than one we
don't.  Surely you realize that, Berdan?"
     The ex-assassin sighed and shrugged.  "I suppose so."
                       ***     *****     ***     *****     ***
     Hallie O'Dene turned out to be an elf.  A southern elf, a dark-skinned Shagornan
elf, an elf of the kind deeply distrusted by the northern elves who figured in the
ancestry of all Fratsfan nobles.
     Berdan refused to have anything to do with her.  "And how Dankilvan, himself of
the High Blood, could actually employ her, trust her--!"  He stormed around their
sitting room, not quite throwing things but looking as though he wanted to.
     Hallie O'Dene watched quietly, showing no offense, nor any other reaction except
mild interest.  Leaning just a little toward Jeri, she asked, "Does he have a strong
heart?  Because he's a prime candidate for apoplexy right now."
     Jeri put a hand over her mouth to hold back a snort of laughter.  "I don't know
him that well," she admitted, "but fortunately, we can do this without him if we have
to."
     The Delarquan's eyebrows rose.  "You think he might abandon the mission just to
avoid working with me?"
     "He might, doll," Raoul said, coming to sit between the two of them on the
room's long couch as Berdan continued to rage up and down the room, cursing Hallie,
Raoul and Jeri, Peranis, Dankilvan, and other people they'd never heard of
comprehensively and bitterly.  "That doesn't worry me so much as that he might quit
us and try to go on without us--go into competition with us over it.  How much can we
trust him?  The man used to be a spy and an assassin, after all."
     "Well, it's as good as a play," Hallie said, "but Lord Dankilvan wants us to get
ON with things.  Maybe we should try to stop him?"
     Raoul shook his head.  "He's got to get through it, doll.  But maybe we should
get on with it ourselves.  Jeri and I are ready to go--we didn't unpack when we got
here."
     "Leave Berdan to follow when he calms down?" Jeri asked.
     "Or go back to Andor, if that's what he wants to do."  Raoul shrugged.  He
glanced at Jeri, who jumped up and grabbed a backpack.
     "I'm ready," she said.  As soon as Raoul and Hallie had picked up their packs,
she added, "What's the matter with this Leemith place that Lord Dankilvan mentioned?
He didn't seem to like them at all."
     Hallie led the way out the door.  "I've got horses waiting for us," she said.
"The Leemin, well, they're all vampires.  Generally good neighbors, but still, you
just don't trust a town full of vampires, do you?"

     Hail ARUAK CITY!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  I want to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Bulldog 
Inn, seeing as SCARLET KNIGHTS II's 59-54-2 has earned them 4th place in the ranks.  
I understand that The Bulldog Inn is buying the drinks for MORAL FIBER tonight, to 
honor their rise to 5th after this turns 3-2-1.  Hmmm.  Now, what did these guys have 
for breakfast this morning?  ELFQUEST has turned a 2-2-0 into 10th place from 29th.  
Give me the recipe!  I understand that The Bulldog Inn is buying the drinks for TUFT 
TUGGERS tonight, to honor their rise to 12th after this turns 2-2-0.  Hmmm.  I want 
to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Bulldog Inn, seeing as CLUB 
HAMMER's 20-23-2 has earned them 13th place in the ranks.  Now, what did these guys 
have for breakfast this morning?  SCARLET KNIGHTS has turned a 2-1-0 into 14th place 
from 25th.  Give me the recipe!  I understand that The Bulldog Inn is buying the 
drinks for ABC'S tonight, to honor their rise to 15th after this turns 2-2-0.  Hmmm.  
Now, what did these guys have for breakfast this morning?  IMMORTALS has turned a 
2-1-0 into 22nd place from 52nd.  Give me the recipe!  I want to know who's buying 
the drinks for who tonight at The Bulldog Inn, seeing as OLD BOYS CLUB's 7-13-1 has 
earned them 23rd place in the ranks.  I understand that The Bulldog Inn is buying the 
drinks for ERRATA tonight, to honor their rise to 25th after this turns 1-0-0.  Hmmm. 
It doesn't rain, but it pours for 'CROSSED UP this turn, a 1-4-0 causing a 11 flight 
drop in the team rankings.  Hand that team a dry towel.  VELVET GREEN must be either 
in pain, or numb, having dropped from 18th to 34th this turn, with a 1-1-0 acting as 
the weight.  Now, what did these guys have for breakfast this morning?  DEEP FOREST 
has turned a 1-4-0 into 35th place from 47th.  Give me the recipe!  I want to know 
who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Bulldog Inn, seeing as KRILL CAVALRY's 
175-303-3 has earned them 36th place in the ranks.  I understand that The Bulldog Inn 
is buying the drinks for SEER KING tonight, to honor their rise to 37th after this 
turns 1-4-0.  Hmmm.  Our condolences (or sneers, as the case may be) go out to SINCE 
YOU'RE GONE for their drop to 39th from 27th.  A 2-3-0 can do that.  BARHOPPERS must 
be either in pain, or numb, having dropped from 28th to 40th this turn, with a 1-4-0 
acting as the weight.  Now, what did these guys have for breakfast this morning?  YA 
GOTTA WINCE... has turned a 1-0-0 into 44th place from 55th.  Give me the recipe!  
The ANIMAL FARM guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  Our condolences go out to one of 
ARUAK CITY's new teams, MK-ULTRA, who unfortunately went 0-5-0.  Don't worry, things 
have got to get better.  And let's see, THE CAPED COD fought BIG LOU and gained 22 
points and contributed to FISH MONGERS III's 3-2-0.  B.B. KING has lost to BODEL, 
falling 17 points, while helping make THE BLUES a 3-2-0 turn.  And not without some 
honor, RICK DERRIS now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ARUAK CITY.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Bulldog Inn?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  VELVET GREEN has cause to stand tall, as 
they were ARUAK CITY's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding VELVET GREEN more than any other team we find MANIC MARVELS.  
ARUAK CITY, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports 
fans, take notice that PUNCH GRAN CRU from OLD BOYS CLUB was ARUAK CITY's most 
challenged warrior this turn.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  DIK-DIK, does your manager know you're 
challenging down 28 points to fight FROSTED MUG from BARHOPPERS?  We're not surprised 
to hear that DIK-DIK beat FROSTED MUG, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS made such a challenge.  In a brave attempt, TONY MCALPINE from THE 
HEADCUTTERS II challenged up 22 points to fight CRISSY from the VIEW ASKEW stable.  
TONY MCALPINE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he subdued CRISSY and ended up 
with 109 recognition points.  RICK DERRIS of VIEW ASKEW had better have a good reason 
for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought RICK DERRIS 
showed great skill and promise when he subdued SKYWISE.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  You gotta do what you gotta do.  
COLORIFIC has sent PURPLE PASSION to the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the 
ale, and toast the memory.  A farewell moment, if you please, WILL O' THE WISP of 
DEEP FOREST has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on hers shield.  
Will BULLDOGS get away with B.S. having killed KAHVI of ELFQUEST?  One more turn, and 
the bloodfeud's over, at least officially.  Is it really true that ARUAK CITY has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ARUAK CITY, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ARUAK CITY, but never good to 
wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my 
pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Big Lou -- Riiiiigggghhhhttttt.  That was a fair matchup. -- Detective Kellumbo

Dead -- Well, almost.  Maybe next time. -- Smeagol

Khaki Kangaroo -- Hey now, I looked pretty good there if I do say so myself! -- Dik-
Dik

Bri -- Sigh. -- Takeeyla, your African Princess Warrior

Position?  Position, Tankesh?  Do I have a "... position on the whole thing here in
Aruak ...?" of course I have a position; I have one on everything.  My position--
insignificant competition, silly defenders, stupid invaders, blase' neutrals, yada,
yada, yada.  So what's YOUR position--on something important--like freedom of speech,
or war, or the death penalty, or aliens from outer space (especially purple ones), or
politics, or blondes, etc, etc. -- One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flyin' Purple People Eater,
Proud Colorific Manager

Crissy, you lucky Bimbo.  Pulled that one out of your hefty bottom, did you?  Watch
your back, you underdeveloped soccer mom. -- Golden Moment, Proud Colorific

Convicted Assassin?  Sure, I'll take a tough fight any day.  Beats easy victories
over the fluffball defenders and invaders.  I LIKE a challenge. -- Black Out, Proud
Colorific

Tankesh -- Insignificant describes a whole lot of what is going on in this burg.
Looks like it may have used to be a pretty classy place, but there sure has been an
influx of riff-raff.  A booming economy isn't always a great thing for everyone. --
Black Out, Proud Colorific

Kennelworth -- You pansy manager of pups and calves, we are coming after you. --
Purple People Eater & The Colorifics

Bark -- Wow!!  What a great warrior you are.  I mean, I know how much effort it took
for you to beat another warrior that has less than half of your FE.  That must have
been some challenge.  Of course, from the looks of your record, you aren't really
that good, or you'd be winning a lot more than 50% of your fights.  What do you have
to do?  Pay off someone at the commission in order to make sure you "randomly"
matchup with glads that you think you can beat?  I'm sure if you put out the effort

it requires to train well, then you wouldn't have to result to such things.  Of
course, you're probably just lazy and don't want to take the time, so you do it the
easiest way possible. -- Grand Marnier

Tankesh -- I don't think it's a lack of bragging, I think it's more of a annoying
silence.  I mean, you all expect for the "invaders" to talk smack, so why do it?  Why
give in to what the "majority" of the arena wants?  That would be too easy.  It'll
come, just not when you expect it. -- Apex

Mino and Animal Farm -- Condolences on your losses.  Good luck with your
replacements. -- Adie

No Duelmaster!  Oh no, does that mean no free beer the next two weeks at the Bulldog
Inn?  Hey, Kennelworth, how about one round on the house for all gladiators? -- Adie

B.S. -- I think you're right!  Suddenly, our teams hardly ever match against each
other, and with so many other easier targets, we never challenge each other.  Talk
about easy.  My record has actually stayed steady as my puds fight at 50%.  If the
RUGS bless me, watch out! -- Tankesh

Rillion -- You're taking a lot of heat, buddy.  Maybe you could get Godric to give
you a break and talk down to the invaders.  Then again, perhaps you thrive on
throwing it back in their faces.  Go get'em, bro! -- Tankesh

All -- We're down to 60 teams now.  Where are you all fleeing to? -- Tankesh

Snaggles -- I'm the wuss, when I beat you?  What world are you from!  In a few turns,
perhaps I will still be the better.  Don't make promises you aren't sure you can
keep. -- Kalidor

Youngblood -- I am sure you told me your team, and you're right I could look up your
alliance mates.  I just haven't bothered.  If it's any consolation, I do now remember
your team name from one of the emails you sent me.  Happy now?  BTW, I'm sorry you
wasted your challenges but I didn't run last turn or this one either.  I will be
back, but I hate to be obvious about when your challenges might go through and when
they'd fall on empty space. -- TigToad

Tankesh -- Why thank you, sir.  Unfortunately, my warriors are finding the personal
ads to be a less dangerous place to fight.  I'll kick their behinds here and be back
quite soon. -- TigToad

Apex -- I do humbly apologize then if I had your intentions wrong. -- TigToad

Hushpuppy & Dreihdensmurf -- Congratulations on getting your invite and immortality.
-- TigToad

Lonnie Johnson -- Remind me to get shoes without leaden soles for the next fight.  I
don't care what the salesman says this time. -- Kedro
P.S.  Last time, he told me the lead soles would help me avoid knockdowns.  Maybe so,
but that's not the only way to lose a fight!

Grand Marnier -- Are you sure it's a good idea to get sloshed right before the fight?
Even on such classy stuff. -- Nila Sundancer

Floydian King -- Any relation to Floydada?  It's a place, but it was a couple of
people first. -- Kip Hardee

B.S. -- I dunno, maybe the influx is good for Aruak City and maybe it isn't, but from
my point of view, it's gotten boring here.  Which is why I'm not replacing deaths--
just let the team fade away, you know. -- Leeta
P.S.  Oh, sure, there are plenty of FIGHTS, but I can see FIGHTS anywhere.

The Umbrella Man -- Don't know if the questions were addressed generally, but:
blathering has a lot of soap in it, blithering is very cold, and blethering is just
pathetic.  Incomplete blathering is soapy but does not work well in hard or alkaline
water.  Complete blathering works anywhere. -- Leeta

Adie -- For s'mores, yes.  Count on me. -- Leeta
P.S.  I think I may be booked to bring oatmeal cookies to the next winter FtF,
though.  Less wheat and no marshmallows is also good.  Raisins and pecans, yes!

To whom in concerns -- The jeer is "You couldn't hit the broad side of a Unicron."
Big planet sized robot. -- All G1 Autobots

Tankesh -- My perspective comes from my research, several months ago, of where I
would start a new team.  I've been reading the Duelmaster turn posts on the website
for quite some time.  I chose this arena first when a friend said he had a team here.
Second because it seemed it would be less costly to try and reach the Isle.  The last
reason is when this "contest" nonsense started.  I believed at first it would be fun
to defend Aruak.  But the more that is written each turn the less I think of both
sides.  I've tried to abide by the "house rules" and have managed to notch up a kill.
I read my turn statements and notice a lot of vital hits when there should be less.
So I wonder if some random accidental kill could have started some past feuds.
Therefore, I will not choose sides.  They seem to be alike.  Filtered down they both
seem to say "conform or else."  Your statements about weeds and respect and warnings
help illustrate this. -- TelatranOne

Two Fingers -- Talk about momentum change.  I wasn't sure that lucky shot would pay
off. -- G1 Hubcap

Social Engineer -- Don't worry your gears teethless.  I'm sure your manager wouldn't
dark arena you...yet. -- G1 Iron Hide

Mismosh -- Good luck on your way to the Isle.  Next time we meet, may you at least
attack me. -- G1 Bluestreak

Dreihdensmurf -- Salute!  You beat me fair and square.  You are the man!  (Er ah,
werecat, I mean). -- B.S.

Indeed, congratulations to Dreihdensmurf, the real Duelmaster.  Drinks are on me at
the Bulldog, U.B.O.S.M., before your Lord Protector heads off to the isle. --
Kennelworth, Proprietor

Fuzzball -- You cute little snuggle bunny, you, I had a terrific time showing what a
real warrior thinks.  I wish we both had learned more. -- Beef Fullion

On The Rack -- You've got that tired look.  Oh, I did that to you?  Well, maybe you
need some viagra or something.  And maybe some prune juice for your boss? -- Dog-
Tired

Connor Macleod -- A salute to you for your victory.  I bow to your great skill and
talent.  Give my regards to your manager. -- Hushpuppy

Serenity -- It was my day.  Luck was with me.  "Some days you get the dog; some days
the dog gets you."  Send my cheeriest bow wows to your teammates and boss. -- Bark

All, the final stats on Hughpuppy are:  15(+2)-21(+2)-13-11(+2)-20(+2)-5(+1)-10(+2)
TP; Low/Mod/Medium Shield Parry Tactic/Initiative routines, 22-15-0 arena; 18-12
tournaments with one T.V. -- Kennelworth of Bulldogs

Tankesh -- Why thank you for the comments.  Things do seem to be flowing well (for
now) for Mino and me and our teams. -- Kennelworth

Rillion/Godric -- I thought your personal to Spirit Chaser/Doc Steele was crass.  I
must admit that I enjoyed every minute of it. -- Kennelworth

Dik-Dik -- Naughty, naughty.  Perhaps I will not always be that easy. -- Khaki
Kangaroo

Hey, Vic's Dungeon, that bondage thing was neat fun.  I loved being the one on top.
-- Cherry Cheetah

Gourmet Cowboy -- I don't believe I was ever in that fight.  You gourmeted my
feathers with ease, champ.  Salute. -- Onyx Owl

QOW -- Is a triple 15 on any character's stats a "cursed" thing to do?  I was told
that any character would be severely cursed if they had three fifteens. -- Dagan
Lifegiver

QOW -- What kind of team should you have if you want it to be a tournament training
team?  What type of stats, etc.?  Also, where is a good place to train them? -- Dagan
Lifegiver

QOW -- Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the legendary Enchiridion produced
by Pagan if I don't have access to a computer?  If so, please diplo me in DM 93, 45
or 52. -- Dagan Lifegiver, mgr. Shadow Warriors (93), Pop Star (45), D Team (52)

Killer Deal -- Such little work for me to add a mark in the "W" column.  I think it
was a bargain.  Some might even say it was a killer deal. -- Hoss

Warduke -- You beat me down and still the crowd was booing you.  Tough crowd. --
Bumpkin

Cteno Pomo -- I didn't mean to hit you while you were down.  What I meant to do
was....  OK, I did mean to hit you while you were down. -- Billy Jim Bob

13 November 2003
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
