                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow!  I am here again.  Lucky, lucky me!  To think -- one such as me, neither
very well done, nor much of a design, and of a lesser-considered style, could
possibly graduate and become a Lord Protector soon.  I can only hope.  And hope.  If
I can get these next 5 PPs???  One more title???  I have been lucky with Equalizer
before. Can I do it again?
     It was an honor to see my friend Hound graduate.  Now THERE was a warrior.  His
23-3-1, his 13(+2)-18(+1)-6-17(+1)-21(+1)-4-11(+1), and his many Advanced Experts is
well, well beyond my ability.
     I guess luck is a very big factor.  So take YOUR luck, challenge me if you can,
and may the luckiest warrior win.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARUAK CITY needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, BULLDOGS had 
to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by ANIMAL FARM!  Way to go 
ANIMAL FARM!  MVP award for WHITE HAIR?  COLORIFIC's proud of him after beating 
VETERAN MERCENARY and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FORD 
PREFECT got smashed by BERLAM FOOTE, and lost 7 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think MINUTE STEAK should let IRVIN FLETE be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  KRILL CAVALRY was the most avoided team.  Is a 469-831-8 record 
really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are BULLDOGS?  KRILL CAVALRY, an 
easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, 
is EQUALIZER popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARUAK CITY!  
He's got a 13-7-1, is that good?  People were asking me did DOGMEAT REALLY challenge 
EQUALIZER?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but EQUALIZER wants me to write about it since he won 
victory over DOGMEAT.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  D'ya think PURPLE PELICAN is feeling guilty for killing THE HITCHHIKERS' 
ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX, a mere boy?  Naah, I doubt it.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ARUAK CITY is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Congrats to our own Minute Steak for defending the title.  Duelmasters drink free at
The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Obregon -- Nice round, buddy.  Nice round. -- Kennelworth

Equalizer -- It was almost equal.  Almost.  Thanks for being my last W. -- Hound
(howling loudly at the moon)

Tirla Dancer -- Sometimes I am in awe of my luck. -- Minute Steak

M. Chardinee -- You ruined a pretty darn lifestyle.  If you don't mind saying so,
that sucked! -- Udder

Veteran Merc -- Now you got a piece of me too? -- Dogmeat

Zergy -- Nice to see you out there.  Welcome to the fray.  All I can say about the
fight is "whew." -- Cowlick

Ahoy, mates!  Me critters done yon 3-0?  This ole pirate bea catchin' them bloody
Colorifics yet.  Aye. -- Mino

M. Chardinee -- That was a little sloppy, but I had fun.  Winning is always fun.
(wink) -- Purple Pig

     I had to fight twice in one day.  It wears me out. -- M. Garfeld Chardinee

Irvin Flete -- Buzz, buzz.  Fly like a butterfly, sting like a bee. -- Black Bee

Berlam Foote -- The newsletter termed it an upset, and it surely felt like an upset
to me.  Perhaps you slipped on some of my doo-doo, which I am sorry to say is not
pretty purple? -- Purple Pelican

I shall return.  Bah!  The old pirate does not have a chance with the... Purple
People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Equalizer and all Cannibalz -- I greatly apologize.  In reviewing the fight
information, somehow I allowed a downchallenge of Hound to Equalizer.  While it was
not my intent, I did it.  Again, I am sorry.  That is not The Bulldog way.  Mea maxim
culpa. -- Kennelworth, Bulldogs

Minute Steak -- Fast, but really, hardly time enough to get cooked through!  I'd
rather take five minutes and have something tastier... and not raw in the middle. --
Tirla Dancer

Black Bee -- Hmm, we have a Black Bee, and a Black Eye (I), somebody should do a
Black Sea (C), and, yes, a Black Tee (shirt)!  This would be the province of the
Purple People Eater rather than Mino, wouldn't it? -- Irvin Flete, brain not in gear,
just spinning my wheels

Nasty Elemental -- Is there any other kind? -- Harline Flete

Arthur Dent -- Huh, no towel. -- Corvo Black

Purple Pelican -- You're a Bird, I'm a Cat, why did I not win?  It would have been
proper.  Fitting. -- Berlam Foote
P.S.  I've never eaten pelican before, does it taste like chicken?

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
