                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My, my.  How did I do this?  How did I make it here?  I had to fight the mighty
and skilled and sandbagged Shy Meerkat on his own challenge?  Lucky, lucky, lucky me
to get out of that one alive.  But, somehow I did, and here I am.
     First I have to send my regards and congratulations to two friends and
competitors who just were promoted to Lord Protectors.  Congratulations and well-
deserved to Tom Sawyer and Shy Meerkat.  While I will greatly miss their
companionship, I must admit that I do not really want to fight either again, so
perhaps their graduation is a good thing for me?
     I cannot wait for my own graduation.  I am a ways off yet, needing ten more PPs,
and perhaps that will allow me to compete in the Champion class in Orlando.  If I can
stay alive...  If I can stay alive.  The competition here at the top will not make
"living" easy; another reason why I say good-bye and good luck to Tom and Shy.  (And
perhaps I shall avoid both on their last turn?)
     While I am on top, I also want to give praise and credit to my teammates --
Cowlick, Dogmeat, Minute Steak, and Udder, for all the support and training they have
given me.  I wouldn't be here without you guys and old master Kennelworth.  Thanks,
big time.
     I am here.  I will take on all comers.  I will both challenge and avoid.  I wish
you all good luck.  Only the best of The Heart And Soul Of Andoria should be
Duelmaster.
          Hound, Duelmaster I

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARUAK CITY a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The BULLDOGS guild has had 
a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, TINY MEERKAT fought HARLINE FLETE and gained 
22 points and contributed to FURRY FURY's 2-1-0.  HARLINE FLETE has lost to TINY 
MEERKAT, falling 17 points, while helping make KRILL CAVALRY a 1-4-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HOUND remains ARUAK CITY's top 
warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Bulldog Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  IMMORTALS 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 
IMMORTALS more than any other team we find BULLDOGS.  ARUAK CITY, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
FURRY FURY's warrior SHY MEERKAT.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, DOGMEAT from BULLDOGS challenged up 23 points to 
fight CORVO BLACK from the KRILL CAVALRY stable.  DOGMEAT perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he defeated CORVO BLACK and ended up with 51 recognition points.  
     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.  A farewell moment, if you please, 
TOM SAWYER of IMMORTALS has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his 
shield.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ARUAK CITY, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ARUAK CITY again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Grimm -- All of us here in The Bulldog stable enjoyed Shy Meerkat's DM Column.  Well
done. -- Kennelworth
P.S.  I will be glad to seeing you back running fell time full on.

Shy Meerkat -- Thanks for the challenge.  It made my day.  If I can hold off the PPs
long enough, I, too, may fight in Orlando.  But I will be in the mere Champion class.
Congrats on your induction, Champ. -- Hound

We Bulldogs honor our own Hound for winning the DM throne.  Salute!  Duelmasters
drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Tom Sawyer -- You were too experienced, too skilled, just plain too good for me.
Well fought and well won. -- Minute Steak (Not enjoying THAT one minute at all)

Caniliv Kat -- You made dogmeat out of me and it HURT!   I sure hope kats don't eat
dogmeat?! -- Dogmeat

New World Man -- I thought you might be just that and took a chance on the challenge.
What a fine and enduring fight we had.  I lucked out in the end.  Salute. -- Cowlick

Veterans as we go through this Memorial Day through Independence Day time period.
Kudos, and THANKS. -- Kennelworth

Tom Sawyer. Sly Meerkat -- Congratulations to you both, and to two of the finest
managers in the land, for your Lord Protectorships.  Aruak City will lose much class
when you both depart for The Big Time. -- Kennelworth
P.S.  Dartor, it did not take the magnificent Shy One two more wins; rather, it only
took only one more loss.  Go figure.

Me mate's Hound done topped yon throne?  Aye!  Bloody fine, Hound. -- Mino, Animal
Farm

Gotta take yon 4-0!  Aye!  Blimey!  Comin' after ye, Purple People Eater.  Me

winner.  I do!  I just may make it to the Orlando Apprentices yet.  Watch out for the
quills! -- Pink Porcupine

Irvin Flete -- I always have such a great time buzzing around with you.  Thanks for
the honey.  (wink) -- Black Bee

Convicted Assassin -- They don't feed us very well in this place, do they.  Look at
that slop! -- Purple Pig (Eating it all up after the big win.)

Nasty Elemental -- I can be rather nasty myself.  After all, I AM a Colorific. --
White Hair, Proud Colorific

Hah!  Mino, you old coot pirate, you ain't got nothin' on The Purple People Eater.
Nope.  My guys went 5-0.  Beat that, buster!  Your critters don't have a chance.
Bring it on! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Not many notes from me this turn.  I just got home, but Shy Meerkat was my 3rd of 8 8
5 21 21 10 11 warriors.  He finished 9 10 5 21 21 10 11.  He was Ad Master Att plus
2, and a bunch of masters.  He will be run in ADM and should have some good tournys
in him. -- Grimm

Deadmeat -- I was shocked, and I keep shocking the boss with my fights. -- Caniliv

Hound -- Great job, you proved to me you have some skills. -- Meerkat

Black Bee -- I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to bee stings. -- Irvin Flete

Paprika Puma -- I was so busy sneezing, I couldn't fight you.  And we keep meeting.
Bummer. -- Tirla Dancer

Berlam Foote

Our congratulations to Tom Sawyer and Shy Meercat. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry
