                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I made it!  I lived!  Through the tournament and despite the local headhunters!
Yes!  Life is like a bowl of cherries--soooooooo sweet!
     I promised some numbers on my luscious body if I made it to this point, so here
goes:
19-7-1 in arenas (DM20 and DM11)
6-6-0 in tournaments
skill bonuses helped me greatly, +2 init & rip; +3 dec & par
normal damage and endurance (despite the bumps)
ended admaster init, master att, adexes in dec, rip, par
faves:  scimitar, high, very low, parry
12(+1)-8-6-15-18(+1)-12-15 slasher
earned 2.25 skills per fight
thought LO was fave with 22/49/4 vs. SC @ 19/75/5

     Retirement is awaiting, and all you young studs out there--LOOK OUT!  I want
you!
          Hugs and kisses,
          LP Cherry Cheetah, DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARUAK CITY to 
see what's new.  See if I even talk to any of those losers in SNUGGLEBUNNIES again!  
Didja see where they got 1-4-0?  Somebody musta won a lotta fights!  One team 
deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 4-0-0.  Keep it up, 
SCARLET KNIGHTS II!  MVP award for BIG JOE TURNER?  THE BLUES' proud of him after 
beating THE GREAT SAMARITAN and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
NILA SUNDANCER's match with SALENA WARSMITH cost her a loss of 20 points!  Like THE 
BLUES' T-BONE WALKER is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster CHERRY 
CHEETAH!  Was that a tear I saw in T-BONE WALKER's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't CHERRY CHEETAH fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  NEVERWAKE was 
ARUAK CITY's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep 
dark secret why COLORIFIC's been avoiding NEVERWAKE so much?  Or is it just that 
they're too scared?  Can KELLUMBO'S KIDS' POSITIVE POLYANA be more popular than me?  
She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  People were asking me did 
MONTEZUMA WHIFFLEBAT REALLY challenge BLOOD MONKEY?  (all right, maybe they didn't, 
but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BLOOD MONKEY 
wants me to write about it since he was overcame by MONTEZUMA WHIFFLEBAT.  Satisfied? 
BLUE BLAZES must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She challenged 
SLAG.  10 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought BLUE 
BLAZES showed great skill and promise when she defeated SLAG.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Kennelworth -- Hey, old guy!  Let it be said again.  Don't you think it's about time
to update the Aruak Wall of Fame at the Bulldog Inn?  I seem to recall one Carris
Fallstar winning the ADM tourney this past spring.  I'm sure Puerco's got a picture
somewhere handy to put up on the wall.  And now that I think of it, we never got
around to putting up Corina Healingankh's picture.  You know, JRK's warrior, also
from Aruak, who won the Freshmen tourney a few years ago.  What's the number up to?
-- Tankesh

Tankesh -- Take it easy on Kennelworth, he's had a lot on his plate recently, what
with managing a couple teams here and taking on all the invaders. -- Adie

Ice -- I think we just returned the favor.  Care to try to even it up again?  You
shouldn't be so quick to talk down, or you'll just end up sticking your foot in your
mouth again. -- Kalidor

Kellumbo -- Good to hear you'll be running full steam.  More invaders butts to kick
then! -- Tankesh

Puerco -- I remember back around turn 280, when Deke was working on writing a
tricentennial spotlight.  So long ago....  But yes, let's see if we can get the rest
of our teams to get fired up.  He didn't quite put it so nicely, but Tankesh is still
irked about JRK just 'leaving' with nothing to say. -- Adie

Purple People Eater -- You've kind of lost all your steam since your best warriors
graduated.  Where's all your bluster now, eh buddy?  That's what I thought, so take a
seat and watch the defenders mop up! -- Tankesh

Nila -- You're doing awesome!  Second under the DM, congratulations, sword sister! --
Segallion

Dik-Dik -- I didn't know you whine when you get slapped down and put in your place.
It must be a result of arrogance on your part.  Learn a little humility.  Then again,
that just might not be in an invaders' vocabulary. -- Segallion

Great Samaritan -- It was mighty kind of you to let me win that one.  I'd really like
to get to the isle, sooner rather than later. -- Zlatina

Onyx Owl -- Sorry about having to whup on a Consortium, but Tankesh says you're fair
game.  It was sure enough a good challenge.  Take it easy, buddy. -- Branford

Calfskin -- That was hairy.  I almost stole it from you a couple times, but you gave
me a pounding before I got to come around and finish it.  Well fought. -- Kalidor

Keb Mo -- I didn't get mo of what I wanted.  Shucks.  Ah well.... -- Eliza

Avast ye, maties!  Me cheetah bea Duelmaster!  Pieces 'o eight! -- Mino

Rainsong -- You were so impressive, and I was so birdlike, that I just plain sucked!
You deserved the victory. -- Almond Albatross

Wall Of Glass -- It took everything this lovely body had!  Well done! -- Lord
Protectress & Duelmaster Cherry Cheetah

Persianna -- I like it when you pull that "Jones" trick!  Are you ok?  I know someone
who really does nails fine. -- Khaki Kangaroo

Branford Hawke -- Well, my onyx is no longer black as it is dripping with red blood
from your just-plain-whipping of this bird.  You showed me what dueling is all about.
Fine challenge and fine win. -- Onyx Owl

Skamakaze -- I had you.  I had you!  But you got me.  Salute. -- Purple Panther

Master Cho -- Please make sure Wise Old Fandil stops and takes the time to cast a
"protect spell" for the two of you, and a "distant prevent spell" for Lady Adeolar's
protection out wherever she may be.  My brother Fandil can be quite impatient at his
old age, even though he is moving slower and slower with time. -- Kennelworth

Rillion -- What a gentleman of you to so kindly congratulate Doc Steele for his
brilliant dc strategy.  You are becoming such a kind fellow. -- Kennelworth

Lini Dawnwind -- I will take that lucky swipe any day.  And I'd truly like to steal
that lovely name of yours.  Let's do lunch sometime, and afterwards I'll show you the
tricks to keeping your pretty figure. -- Bullomia

Kalidor The Bold -- I did not have what it takes. -- Calfskin

Gerfel and Bandit (the Singing One) -- What a lucky match-up for me.  The MUGs are
obviously not in my court!  But I love you guys!  (esp. with catsup!) -- Hot Dog

Torridor -- The song goes..."and they call it puppy love..." -- Guess Who?

T-Bone Walker -- I tried and tried and tried and tried and failed.  You are one
formidable er, a, winner.  I guess most people take t-bones over tenderloins any day?
-- Tenderloin

Cherry Cheetah -- Duelmasters and Duelmistresses drink free at the Bulldog Inn.
Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor.

Generalissimo -- Thank you for your kind words. -- Kennelworth

Tankesh -- I must admit that the disposal of all records occurred with my
"retirement", hence, my once very detailed records are no longer available.  I do
know that I have not been able to get the better of your team.  (Apparently the same
is true with Doc's--so far.) -- Kennelworth

Taj Mahal -- You are such a beautiful thing, and you were too antique and astounding
for me!  I wish I was well. -- Bullomin

Congratulations to Cherry Cheetah of Animal Farm, the first non-Bulldog in a long
while to hold the Aruak City throne Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn.  (Even
if they are Consortium affiliated?) -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

When Dogma Fails -- Sorry to have to ruin DA Heretics perfect record.  Well, sorta
sorry. -- Tenderloin

Tenderloin -- Taunting is not a Bulldog traits.  Desist! -- Kennelworth

Nixie -- I had to give a friend one last shot at the throne.  Luckily for me, that
was the very, very best I could fight.  Salute. -- Bark, retired Duelmaster

Doc -- You're awake?  Come on over to The Bulldog Inn for a drink on me now that
you're up.  Our conversation will liven this town! -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Whifflebat -- You didn't whiffle much, but then I'm not a bat. -- Onyx Owl

Bonnie Raitt -- I'm glad you didn't cut my head.  It would be hard for a bird to see
without ahead, don't you think?  I felt kinda great about being able to beat someone
of your stature. -- Almond Albatross

Big Joe -- Salute!  I couldn't get it done!  You did! -- Purple Panther

Send me to the Dark Arena...grumble, grumble, grumble...I'll show them. -- The Piper

Segallion Sundancer -- It appears luck was on your side last turn.  Better lucky than
good, I guess. -- Dik-Dik

Gladius Starstryke -- Wow!  Great fight there, big guy!  Hang in there, I know you
can do it.  Just a few more turns like this past one of learning and we are both
gonna rock! -- Positive Polyana

Virginia's Secret -- What a sad, sad day for your kind. -- Ice

Taj Mahal -- Back where you belong, whipper snapper! -- Steel

Cherry Chicken is more like it if you ask me.  Braaakkkkkkk, brakkkkkkkkk.... -- Dik-
Dik

K.K. Downing -- No, thank you, I don't believe that cutting my head would advance
anything.  Well, anything good.  There is a tradition that sun-dancers ought not cut
their hair, for fear of...well, I don't know what it is that we're supposed to fear.
But we don't cut.  We who are women, at least.  So, thanks but no thanks. -- Nila
Sundancer

Fivalo -- Wow, you're immortal?  Cool!  Then I don't need to worry if I hit you too
hard?  Not that I'd do it on purpose, but sometimes these things happen, you know?
The arena's a hard place. -- Rockie Dee

Bullomia -- That's GROSS.  Besides, it's unhealthy to be too thin. -- Lini Dawnwind

Van Helsing -- I suppose you're all cock-a-hoop now, vanquished a wicked Karnhorn and
all.  (sigh)  Sometimes I think the Commission is out GET those of us who aren't
Alastarian by birth.  Everybody, read my lips:  I am not a Karnhorn.  I'm Ferencian.
It's quite different, except that we have a PHYSICAL resemblance.  I do not worship
Kjarran.  I don't take orders from the Satrap.  Etc. -- Kadallon

Explain to me, please, why somebody who had the good sense to leave Mordant for Aruak
City should be forced into the arena to be beaten up repeatedly and not even allowed
to keep any skills he learns?  He doesn't seem like a bad guy, actually. -- Samira
Fleet

I wish to thank Ms. Fleet for her kind words, and to ask you all to remember that I
am a Mordanti by birth, yes, but I LEFT.  I did not choose to stay there and live
under that kind of iron regime.  Admittedly, it doesn't seem so bad since Talissen
became queen, but still, I could go back and I HAVEN'T.  I'm a CITIZEN here, you
know.  I don't appreciate always going around under the stigma of being a "dirty
Mordanti deserter."  I'm an immigrant. -- Harlo Contervanos, "Mordant Deserter"

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:

hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
