                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Column?  A DM Column?  All I can think about this time of the year is FOOD!  It
is The Holiday Season and the amount of excess food goes up exponentially!  Yes!
What a wonderful time of the year.  (Just a reminder that turkey is the right main
course for BOTH Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Get it?)  Don't worry about leaving
plenty on your plate; just throw it in the slop.  I love it!
     So Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to all and to all a great fight.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARUAK CITY this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as BULLDOGS is pushed out of top team by ANIMAL FARM, who came from 2nd 
with a 4-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, ARTHUR DENT fought DOGMEAT and gained 31 
points and contributed to THE HITCHHIKERS' 3-2-0.  DOGMEAT has lost to ARTHUR DENT, 
falling 21 points, while helping make BULLDOGS a 2-2-0 turn.  This turn PURPLE PIG 
challenged TIRLA DANCER in what was ARUAK CITY's Title bout.  Defending his title for 
another turn, PURPLE PIG kept KRILL CAVALRY's warrior, TIRLA DANCER, from claiming 
the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the THE HITCHHIKERS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ARUAK CITY, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided THE HITCHHIKERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was ANIMAL FARM.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was KRILL CAVALRY's warrior 
TIRLA DANCER.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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 brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, ARUAK CITY, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ARUAK CITY, but never good to 
wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my 
pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Congrats again to Purple Pig, Mino's Duelmaster of The Heart And Soul of Andoria.
Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Hannibal -- I would be glad to help you in DM105, but The Consortium sends all its
Lord Protectors (almost 900, now.) to Crysalis, the slow arena.  Slow ADM, and a
little Primus now and then, seems to suit them best.  If I can help, feel free to
contact The Consortium on the D2 site, or e mail them at wfms101@aol.com. --
Kennelworth, Bulldogs

Ford Prefect -- Wow!  I am surprised at that!  You must have been prefect, while I
was darned near perfect? -- Bull Moose

M. Chardinee -- Well, I guess I can say that other than the fight we just had, we
must have something in common.  (wink) -- Udder

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Kennelworth

Bart -- I warned you!  You are just not the right make-up for a cock fight! -- Cherry
Chicken

Tirla -- Thanks for making my day. -- Purple Pig

Grim -- Oh, my!  I did not really want to kill Shady Meercat.  I didn't!  Something
just happened, and I am really, really sorry. -- Rose Rooster

May Shady Meercat fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- All animal Farm
critters

Blimey, me critters bea fightin' fine.  Yon Meerkat done walked yon plank.  Aye. --
Mino

Heh, heh, heh.  My Colorifics go 4-0!  Well done!  Mino will never catch us for best
team now!  Never! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Marvin -- Now who has the black eye? -- Black Eye, Proud Colorific

Irvin F -- It is always a pleasure.  Thanks for the "w." -- Purple Passion, Proud
Colorific

Vic Stackhouse -- I'll just bet that surprised you.  You have to get up early in the
morning to beat me.  Oh, yeah! -- Red-Eye, Proud Colorific

Hey, Hannibal, nope, I did not fight in this past Mailer, and I only participated in
tournaments long ago, early in my career. As to my two arena losses, you are right in
that Serenity beat me on a challenge, and the other loss was to Dartor's Immortal's
Cautionary Orc. Luck at you. -- Purple Pig

Sorry no personals.  Sick again. -- Jorja
