                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, what a way to come back.  We go 5-2 have team on the move, and I win the crown.
Maybe this is an omen of better results to come.  I'd like to give congrats to the
former Duelmaster for the advancement to advanced.

The origin of the Living Dead is that we came from arena 37.  We transferred to Aruak
when they shut down the arena.  Dartor is trying to finish off this team and so far
one guy was DA'd, one guy was murdered and one guy graduated.  That leaves me and
Superbeast.  After we're gone it will be back to just having the Immortals around.

                                    See ya,
                                    Enbalmer

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARUAK CITY!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon KRILL 
CAVALRY this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 16th position in the wake of 
a 1-4-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week MANIC MARVELS went 3-2-0 to move up 9 in the rankings.  Did 
only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which LORDS OF CHAOS managed to post this round?  
I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  SUPERBEAST caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VAN HELSING and was 
awarded 24 points in recognition.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on 
the challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster ENBALMER himself.  Most 
watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on K. K. DOWNING as he bore arms 
against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster ENBALMER.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail K. K. DOWNING, Duelmaster of ARUAK CITY!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ARUAK CITY these days is BULLDOGS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of TUFT TUGGERS are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  A 
match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that KALIDOR THE 
BOLD posted a challenge against the more highly recognized WILLIE DIXON.  The 
results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand KALIDOR THE BOLD won victory over WILLIE 
DIXON.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of HALO who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 10 
points below in the rankings.  I thought HALO showed great skill and promise when she 
dispatched THUNDERSTORM.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Look no more for AZURE ASP in the arena 
or on the streets of ARUAK CITY.  Hers fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable 
for one at 5-7-1.  I must report the passing of THUNDERSTORM, veteran of many duels.  
11-24-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  Some say 
a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in 
hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARUAK CITY as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Congratulations to the "surprise-out-of-nowhere" Duelmaster, Enbalmer, who bested the

past champion to earn the spot.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn.  Bring
the whole team and managers for an evening of fun and pleasure. -- Kennelworth,
Proprietor

Dartor -- Welcome back, old friend.  The place is simply not the same without you and
your team. -- Kennelworth

Thunderblade -- The dog has spoken!  You know, "bark!". -- Big Dog

Requiem -- I sure hope that isn't your requiem, because I sure like having you
around.  You are one of my favorite condiments. -- Hot Dog

Superbeast -- You just plain skinned me.  I don't have it, I guess.  Perhaps it is
time to retire early? -- Calfskin

Captured Orc?  Captured Orc!  Oh my!  What will the neighbors say? -- Bucking Brahma

Hey, Brahma, I wouldn't worry about the neighbors.  I'd worry about what the boss is
gonna say! -- Hot Dog

Azure Asp -- Ye snake!  Ye land lubbin' eel!  Ye losin' worm!  Yon plank bea waitin!
Aye! -- Mino

Doggone it, Willie Dixon!  Now you've got me in deep dodo!  I just may slither away
into oblivion! -- Azure Asp

Virginia's Secret -- Your strong style advantage, your challenge, and yet I hooted
you to the arena floor?  My, my.  Please tell Dartor welcome back for all of us.  A
definite "welcome back".  Hoot. -- Onyx Owl

Domingo -- Well done!  A rather inauspicious start for me, though. -- Aqua Arachnid

Oh, it's nice being a One-eyed, One-horned, Flyin' Purple People Eater here in Aruak
City.  My Colors are showing proud! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Van Helsing -- Beaten by a piker, huh?  A green piker!  I guess you're simply not at
your best unless there is a little undead action, huh?  Well, I'm not dead yet, pal!
-- Green With Envy, Proud Colorific

Always a pleasure, Honey.  Always a pleasure. -- Blue Velvet, Proud Colorific

Albino Rainbow -- Ah.  Of course you're a golem, I should have guessed before we met,
since you are profoundly unnatural.  But then, that's the arena for you, full of the
unnatural. -- Lini Dawnwind

The Singing Bandit -- That is, like, one of my favorite tunes.  Can we do it as a
duet, do you think? -- Rockie Dee

Treestump -- Too bad you aren't in Zensu; there's a Stump Jumper there, and I feel
sure the two of you should meet. -- Jo Mooncatcher

Fenris -- Hmm, it would appear that the error in this was in coming anywhere near
you.  I've always had a great respect for wolves...from a distance.  I should have
remembered that last part! -- Jon Fleet

Bootstrap Ribeye -- I'm totally not getting this. -- Windchaser

All -- I will be somewhere on the Great Plains, formerly known as the Great American
Desert, when this arena runs.  It puts a crimp in my writing schedule, so there may
be no episode this time again. -- the Scribe

Dartor -- Welcome back.  What a way to engineer Enbalmer's ascension to the throne!
May his reign be lengthy. -- Generalissimo Puerco

Purple Panther, PPE -- I think you attained the pinnacle of basher favorites.  Or,
let me rephrase...NATURAL basher favorites! -- Generalissimo Puerco

Adie -- I heard you got lost on the way to the arena last week. -- Generalissimo
Puerco
P.S.  Watch out for the Consortium.  They've been two weeks without tufts and I'll
bet they're starving for some.

All -- Let me echo Kennelworth's forthcoming wishes that everyone have a good tourney
and bring some more glory home to Aruak!  Axly and Carris will be there, hopefully
doing their part. -- Generalissimo Puerco

Embalmer -- Nice way to come back for Dartor!  Well done, Duelmaster!  Drinks are
free at the Bulldog Inn. -- Adie

Dartor -- Good to see you again.  You know, I miss Hannibal and his questions of the
week.  And I certainly don't want you to shut down here.  Would you like to post
questions of the week? -- Adie

Manic Marvels -- Welcome back to Aruak City! -- Adie

Doc Steele -- How are the RUGS treating you?  Aruak has always had difficult RUGS.  I
certainly know.  Ask anybody who has been here for a long time. -- Adie

Syrlania -- Well you're certainly the arrogant type!  Sounds like somebody I know.
Care for a date? -- Tankesh

Purple Panther -- If your faves had been those, except with a HL, I'd invite you to
my team in AD! -- Tankesh

Jo Mooncatcher -- Something to hide?  What are you referring too? -- Kalidor

Calfskin -- What were you found wanting?  Something other than an arena with a sword
wielding opponent?  I can vouch for that. -- Eliza

Silver Lining -- You would be easy if I so choose.  As to tufts, I am not familiar
with your line of thought.  I am no tuft. -- Kronos

Big Dog -- You take your 'fifth', and I will be taking your skin. -- Jolith

The Singing Bandit -- Go back to your paradoxical way of life you voluble vulture.
Nobody will put Big Dog in the earth but me. -- Jolith

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I
can be contacted at:

Ladies and gents...get your teams together and join in on the hottest and fiercest
contest ever to grace the arena sands!  Intrigue, personal wars, you name it...we got
it going on!  What is this contest?  It's the Turf War IV in DM 47, North Fork!!
This fantastic contest was begun by my alliance mate Asmo Dius, and I've picked up
some of the slack.  Contest starts on Turn 225 (approx. date June 9th?).  It's an
"alliance-type contest", so grab your folks and bring them in for a bang up time.
Rules will be printed in the DM 47 newsletter at least until the contest starts. --
