                                WHAT A SIGHT TO SEE!

     In my grandiose life, I have been reborn under many different circumstances and
names.  My most significant, of course, is the current one as Proud Colorific
Manager.  As you all well know, I was a former Rock Star and People Eater under the
same name.  Perhaps, however, my revealing of another life would be of interest to
you.
     Hans Grapje was raised in a Catholic school in The Hague and, as a young man,
aspired to become a priest, but was drafted into the Army during WWII and spent two
years co-piloting B17s until his aircraft was shot down in 1943 and he lost his left
arm.  Captain Grapje spent the rest of the war as a chaplain, giving spiritual aid to
soldiers, both Allied and enemy.  After the war, he became a priest, serving as a
missionary in Africa, piloting his own plane (in spite of his handicap) to villages
across the continent.  In 1997, Father Grapje was serving in Zimbabwe when an
explosion in a silver mine caused a cave-in.  Archbishop Grapje went down into the
mine to administer last rites to those too severely injured to move.  Another shaft
collapsed, and he was buried for three days, suffering multiple injuries, including
the loss of his right eye.  The high silver content in the mine's air gave him
purpura, a life-long condition characterized by purplish skin blotches.  Although
Cardinal Grapje devoted his life to the service of God as a scholar, mentor, and holy
man, church leaders agree:  he will never ascend to the Papacy.  No one wants a one-
eyed, one-armed, flying purple Papal leader! 

The One-eyed, One-Horned, Flying Purple People-Eater Proud Colorific Manager and
much, much more.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARUAK CITY will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as LORDS OF CHAOS is pushed out of top team by BULLDOGS, who came from 
2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  Now, what did these guys have for breakfast this 
morning?  GRYFFINDOR HOUSE2 has turned a 3-0-0 into 13th place from 25th.  Give me 
the recipe!  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown 
for ERRATA, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 24th.  The MANIACAL TUFTS 
guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ELMER FUDD fought HOT DOG and 
gained 22 points and contributed to LORDS OF CHAOS' 1-4-0.  HOT DOG has lost to ELMER 
FUDD, falling 13 points, while helping make BULLDOGS a 3-2-0 turn.  ELIZA PIGERON 
challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone SCARLET KNIGHTS 
II's warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, WARDUKE kept TUFT TUGGERS' 
warrior, ELIZA PIGERON, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the KELLUMBO'S KIDS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ARUAK CITY, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided KELLUMBO'S KIDS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BULLDOGS.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was KRILL CAVALRY's warrior JON 
FLEET.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave 
attempt, STU HAMM from THE HEADCUTTERS II challenged up 24 points to fight HERMOINE 
from the GRYFFINDOR HOUSE2 stable.  STU HAMM perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as 
he was defeated by HERMOINE and ended up with 3 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ARUAK CITY has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARUAK CITY and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ARUAK CITY again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Hey, Warduke, congratulations! Always glad to see a Scarlet Knight on top!
Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. See you there. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Elmer Fudd -- EVERYONE wanted a piece of me? Hot dogs are such favorites, no doubt.
But I'm glad it was you, buddy. Your challenge and your loss. I'll take fries with
that! -- Hot Dog

Mr. Purple People Eater -- We were sorry to see Green With Envy go. Good pikers are
hard to find. May he fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- Kennelworth

Neverwake -- Good job! That is one of the best rounds you have had in quite a while!
Good thinking to lay out the whole team. The whole Consortium salutes you for your
wisdom. -- Kennelworth

Dartor -- Thank you for posting the current win lists for all arenas. We are
certainly pleased to be there. Had some of our other Consortium colleagues continued
to participate (namely Fandil The Wise, Fandils, DM46, -- Senator Bob Dole, Kansans,
DM63 -- Pretty Pandora, Demons Of Death, DM40) they too would be on your list. You
may wish to note that our old friend, Mino, and his Animal Farmers are originally

Green With Envy -- I am really really sorry about your death.  Please believe me when
I say it was not my intentions to kill you. -- Albino Rainbow/Papaiz

Warduke -- Duelmaster?  Who woulda thought!  Congratulations.  With a name like that,
I'd bet you drink a lot.  It's good the Duelmaster drinks free, come on by! -- Adie

Dartor -- You gave me an idea for a Q.O.W.! -- Adie

Q.O.W. -- Parry-lungers can be quite the enigma when it comes to design, and
especially winning with them.  What makes a good parry lunger?  Does it depend more
on a combination of design and luck, or does one or the other have a greater effect.
I've seen tank versions, finesse versions, fast/power versions... but each design may
need a certain bonus, whether it is a certain learn type, or raw bonus'.  What are
your thoughts?  What makes a good PL?  And what kind of strategies make those designs
win? -- Adie

Kennelworth -- I wouldn't be surprised if the Aruak RUGs have dug their claws deeply
into Neverwake.  They may be in for a long trudge.  Maybe karma would help them out
if they stopped DCing and chose to be a true Aruaki in spirit... -- Adie

PPE -- Oh man!  You just got punked!  Or should I say Green With Envy was punked by
Albino on his graduation!  That's gotta hurt! -- Tankesh

Jon Fleet -- Stop growin'?  Now why would' I ev'a wan'a do tha'et? -- Jeb
P.S.  Somehow I got around ta poundin you again.

Rockie Dee -- If them littl'ens like Kill Steele be too intense, where does that put
little ol' me?  Am I cush? -- Jeb

Scribe -- Great spot!  Although I don't recall seeing me in it... And what's the deal
with 600+ lbs of honey?  Lifetime supply?  I hear bee's are having a bad last few
years and honey and other fruit crops are hurtin' without them. -- Tankesh

Dartor -- That is a sweet chart!  Aruak is up there with three! (We won't mention
that Mino transferred in!) -- Tankesh

Van Helsing -- Tankesh says that's a bit of payback.  I certainly have nothing
against you. -- Eliza

Positive Polyana -- Think you could let me get a word in?  Ah, didn't think so, you
knew what would have happened. -- Branford

Thunderblade -- Looks like I took the blade out of you and left nothing but a noisy
racket, thundering on... -- Kalidor the Bold

Detective Kellumbo! -- Hey hey, good to see my favorite lady again!!  Give me a kiss!
(I'll be watching that knife in your hand though!) -- Tankesh

Yes!  A couple other 'invaders' popped back in.  As Jeb would say, "Thems is some gud
pickins". -- Tankesh

Louie C -- I was no match for your superior defense. -- Jauron

Teddy Ruxpin -- Congratulations, Lord Protector.  I'd like to think I got close, both
times, but we'll never really know. -- Montezuma

Big Dog -- I'd never suggest that you'd stoop to such underhanded tactics as
downchallenging.  Its just that, well, I'd really like to defeat you! -- The Singing
Bandit

Windchaser -- Gerfel (himself) has been dead as long as I've been in this business
(he died on my stable's debut turn here in Aruak City).  But if he were here now, I'm
sure he'd still consider you to be on speaking terms.  Augustine is at rest, and all
is forgiven. -- Generalissimo Puerco

Dartor -- Would you be willing to share Mismosh's stats with us, and your thoughts on
why he didn't suceed, now that he has been retired?  I've known that the p-lunge
style has been giving you fits for quite a while, and I'd like to help if I can. --
Generalissimo Puerco

Balance of Terror -- Please accept my apologies for the death of Tsimshjan.  That end
was not my intent and I will await your bloodfeud. -- JJ Cooke

Balance of Terror -- Let me express my condolences and regret as well.  My warrior
was running 4 KD, aiming at non-vitals.  Mine kill only rarely, but I'm no less sorry
that it had to happen to one of yours. -- Generalissimo Puerco
P.S.  Please introduce yourself to the arena community.

Colorific -- RIP Green. -- Generalissimo Puerco

Bootstrap Ribeye -- Whoosh!  That molasses is STRONG.  I don't think I like my meat
cured out of all recognition. -- Windchaser

Frank Zappa -- Why doesn't the fight report make note of your "fearsome helm in the
likeness of a trout"?  It's something quite out of the ordinary. -- Jo Mooncatcher

Almond Albatross -- I don't see how even a golem could fly in that condition. -- Lini
Dawnwind
P.S.  I, erm, I buried you in the sand to keep the gulls from getting at you.

A Userous Merchant?  A STANDBY?  What is going on? -- Rockie Dee, who did not expect
to fight a standby in Aruak City

Jeb Merclue -- You shouldn't have let the arenamaster give you that nod.  Accepting
gifts from the officials is suspicious behavior.  And besides, if you'd just waited a
little longer, or he had, I would have staged a come-back.  I know I would have.  I
could feel it coming on.  Really. -- Jon Fleet

Bucking Brahma -- Just so you don't go biting them! -- Lini Dawnwind

20 April 2005
I have returned after a five-year absence.  I expect all tithes, gifts and bequeaths
to resume as normal. -- Magic Man

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.
Street Legal

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!
