                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Amazing!  Absolutely amazing!  I am so surprised to be here!  The best dog in
Aruak City?  Nay, the best warrior in Aruak City?  I am not really sure I am worthy.
     It is a great honor and a great responsibility to be Duelmaster in The Heart And
Soul of Andoria.  Health.  Humility.  Honor.  I will do my best to make everyone
proud of the Duelmaster crown for whatever time I can sit on the throne.
     As I pen this I truly have no idea what Kennelworth will have me do.  I will
certainly challenge, as other warriors deserve a shot at the warrior on top.  I do
have a TV; will I use it?  Avoid?  Of course.  Seldom do Consortiumites not avoid.
     Maybe I will get a chance to talk to you all again.  If so, I will supply all
the Bulldog stats.
     'Til then....
                       Big Dog

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARUAK CITY.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  LORDS OF CHAOS 
after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing 
the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that 
for a perceptive observation?) as KRILL CAVALRY can attest...  Say what you will 
about blind luck and dirty fighting, but ANIMAL FARM will tell you 942-566-34 is 
nothing to laugh at...  THE LIVING DEAD had cause to celebrate, after SUPERBEAST got 
24 points by beating MONTEZUMA WHIFFLEBAT.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
ROCKIE DEE was winsome, after beating BUCKING BRAHMA and seeing him lose 22 points.  
The arena was more crowded than usual this time, as KALIDOR THE BOLD faced ARUAK 
CITY's Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by KALIDOR 
THE BOLD, of TUFT TUGGERS, who despite a 10-3-0 couldn't overcome ARUAK CITY's Number 
1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead 
trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of IMMORTALS, alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, COLORIFIC scurried away from IMMORTALS.  Oh, the 
shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and GLADIUS STARSTRYKE is it right 
now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't SCARLET KNIGHTS proud!  FRANK ZAPPA challenged 
RAINSONG!  Who says THE HEADCUTTERS II are just a bunch of wimps!  FRANK ZAPPA of THE 
HEADCUTTERS II kept his wits as he was bested by RAINSONG.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Yellow Streak -- We know the Colorifics well, so I knew you'd have something to say
about our fight.  I also spotted a way that I could exploit you so I begged Street
Legal to let me challenge again.  He relented, I got the challenge, and I was right.
It was still tough but I really felt I could get you! -- Willie Dixon

Yo Mooncatcher -- It was a gift from Nanook of the North, that seal loving Eskimo
boy, and Captain Beefheart swore it would confuse and disorient my opponents...and it
does! -- Frank Zappa

Huckle Cat -- Nothing personal, the two challenges, just a matter of matchups! --
Street Legal

Adie -- Hmm, I'm not really experienced with p-lungers but the VC lean towards a
minimum 12 SP it seems.  I've had my successes with a 7 or 8 and a 10 SP.  I seem to
think if you can get +2 Att and +2 Def it'll match a lunger's key stat areas.  It
either needs to learn Att and Def to be an offensive or Par and Def to be a counter
puncher type.  Granted they seem to learn little Rip but when you can defend and have
near the Att of a lunger you don't need to learn Rip, just run a higher OE with your
parry tactic.  Also if you can find a Dec favorite learn p-lunger you've found
yourself a REAL gem, and I'd try to graduate it regardless of record.  Why?  Because
maybe you just don't have its faves down, graduate it, get its numbers, then decide
to retire it.  Or not.  They say the "Red Book" has some hidden clues...it called the
p-lunger the "perhaps most versatile style of the 10."  If I remember right.  And it
used to dominate arena life for the first 100 turns, except for the TPs (before they
weakened the parry). -- Street Legal

Q.O.W. -- How does 52 count for damage, compared to ST, in your mind?  I'll help
clarify what I mean.  I have an AB who is 3 ST and 14 SZ and got great damage.  Make
it 14 ST and 3 SZ and no way do you get great.  I feel it's about each 52 point
equals 2 ST points.  So a 10 ST 9 SZ guy would equal a 8 ST 10 SZ guy.  Your
thoughts?  1.5, 2, 2.5?  Another example 9/21 got tremendous, 21/9...yeah right! --
Street Legal
P.S.  If you agree, 2, please respond anyway with your supporting info if you can.

Mino -- I forgot to talk last turn and mention how sorry I am that your warrior was
slain by my hands.  I hope you can forgive me. -- Dirk Darkblade

Adie -- Mismosh was 13-15-9-11-11-15-13, but with his wit he was only able to get one
expert.  That is why he was unsuccessful.  I'll have to make them smarter. -- Dartor

Colorific -- I am so honored to beat one of your guys.  You are one of the best teams
in the arena so any victory against you will be savored to the fullest. -- Dirk
Darkblade

Mr. Rick Derringer -- That has got to be really REALLY embarrassing, Pal.  Your
challenge.  Your significant style advantage.  Your loss!  (Big roaring laugh)  As
that Lady Adie would say, "You got punked!" -- Yellow Streak, Proud Colorific (barely
holding back the guffaws)

Jauron Tajak-Makar -- Not only is your name a pile of gibberish, but your challenging
is a trial in futility.  You challenged ME?  Your mistake. -- Black Plague, Proud
Colorific

Louie C. -- Six minutes?  Me?  I won that?  You must really be feeling the pain. --
Golden Aura (basking in it) Proud Colorific

Thank you one and all for your acclaim and congratulations for my team's 3-0.  We
only want to earn your favor--and that will not be hard as long as I am manager. --
One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager
Extraordinaire

Dirk Darkblade -- Take THAT, you killer.  And I may be back for more.  Beware the eye
(and the fangs)of the turquoise tiger! -- Turquoise Tiger

Dracula -- You really go at a gal's throat, don't you, Honey? -- Almond Albatross

Aubergine -- When the puma is on the prowl, the opposition bleeds pink! -- Pink Puma

Kill Steele -- Clearly I am incapable of it, but it sounds like a fine plan. --
Calfskin

Lady Adie -- Perhaps it would help you to read "one eyed, one horn, flying purple
papal" fast? -- Kennelworth

Warduke -- I am one lucky, lucky dog!  Good luck in the Big Time. -- Big Dog

Adie -- The plot thickens for my elder brother, Fandil The Wise.  I must admit that I
enjoy seeing him work his way out of trouble. -- Kennelworth

Rainsong -- You are quickly proving my point.  I've lost my buck. -- Bucking Brahms

Lady Adie -- My friend Mino sends his thanks for your compliments on the animals and
colors.  Personally, I like his alliteration. -- Kennelworth

Big Dog -- We're proud of you!  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. --
Kennelworth, Proprietor

Willie Dixon -- No fair boiling me first, you Hamburger Man! -- Hot Dog

Jeb Merclue -- I had to give it a shot, but I fought like a cow. -- Moo Moo

Big Dog -- You know where to go for your free drinks I'll assume.  Congratulations!
-- Adie

Ye Consortium Scribe -- Now THAT was a vague description of what you think a PL is or
should be.  Shame on you, leaving all the newbies completely in the dark.  These
Q.O.W. show up in Noblish Island. -- Adie

DK -- Awww...come on.  One turn!  That's it.  <rolls his eyes.> -- Tankesh

Neverwake -- That was quite a house cleanin!  I knew the RUGs were feeding you
Aruak's finest! -- Tankesh

Black Plague -- What are you smokin'!  Orange Otter was from Animal Farm.  Since when
does Colorific look out for other teams' blood feuds?  You have a soft spot for the
color orange? -- Tankesh

PPE -- Excuses, excuses.  Don't pass off your patheticness through the lack of
ability by your warriors.  You are the one who recruits them. -- Tankesh

Lini Dawnwind -- You're good.  I expect to face you again. -- Kalidor

Moo Moo -- Hot damn, I'm gettin' good at this!  Schooled another hot shot power
style!  Yee haw! -- Jeb

Black Plague -- That will about complete my short tenure. -- Jauron

Van Helsing -- Damn it, these stupid match-ups with you.  How lame. -- Branford

Honey -- Say...since when!  Oi!  I'll teach you! -- Eliza

Rockie Dee -- You accused me of being in cahoots with the Arenamaster?  Don't you
remember? -- Jeb, shaking his head

Scribe -- No, I'm not in this story-line, I got left behind somewhere in the Karnhorn
Empire!  You could at least bring me back.  THEN maybe I'll decide whether to jump in
on the current one here.  Looks like they could use a good warrior with street
smarts.  Then again, you might just dump me in another room with beautiful women only
to find myself facing execution and left for dead! -- Tankesh, a bit peeved

Rockie Dee -- Learn you spelling, or I will teach you how short and precious your
life really can be. -- Lord Kronos

Fivalo -- Failed to finish you again.  I must be...getting old. -- Lord Kronos

Bargain Basement -- Perhaps I should try that minute three strategy more often.... --
Fiona

Red Pepper -- The trials of gladiating.... -- Jolith

Jeb -- Yes, indeed.  Very exciting, isn't it? -- Generalissimo Puerco

Big Dog -- Oh, great...now you're the DUELMASTER.  Congratulations, again, I guess.
-- The Whining Bandit

Jo Mooncatcher -- I'm not talking to you right now. *sniff* -- Bootstrap

All -- Neverwake is now sending "Andorians" to the dark arena.  It is a good thing
that Andorian dark arenas are non-lethal, by decree of our late King Rylian!  Health,
Humility, Honor! -- Generalissimo Puerco

Kalidor the Bold -- A challenge worthy of your cognomen, sir.  (wincing)  Ouch. --
Lini Dawnwind

Natas -- Regarding your team name?  Don't. -- Windchaser

Bootstrap Ribeye -- Never say I don't know how to carve a steak. -- Jo Mooncatcher

Django Reinhardt -- Remind me never to tell one of you Headcutters "a little off the
back and sides."  That was not fun. -- Rockie Dee

Cookie Monster -- Yes, but what KIND of cookies?  That could make a big difference.
-- Jon Fleet
