                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Aruak, there's a new sheriff in town and his name is Arthur Dent... ya'll
be cool.
     I had the cleaners work on the throne for 6 hours, it was an absolute sty.
Purple Pig, you are a formitable foe and I congratulate you on an amazing record.
     How does it feel to have a PS be the Champion of Aruak City; have you no shame?
It is a refreshing change from the TPs, LUs, and STs that I see all too often.
     Deep Thought tells me that I am his first Piker with a winning record before he
died; it looks like I have far exceeded his expectations.  My challenge goes out to
Caniliv Kat, which may be a mistake considering his style, but what the hell, I'm
lucky to be here and I have my towel.

                                               Arthur Dent, Duelmaster 
                                               (and unwilling space explorer)

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARUAK CITY once again!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep 
your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  KRILL CAVALRY is now ranked 
7th with a 2-3-0 turn.  It seems so recently people were saying COLORIFIC was washed 
up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 2.  I guess they're washed no more...  ARUAK 
CITY has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He challenged FURRY FURY's 
CANILIV KAT (8-2-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  Try as he might, 
CANILIV KAT wasn't good enough at persuading ARTHUR DENT to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  ARUAK CITY thinks THE 
HITCHHIKERS and their 55-44-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up... 
The bums at COLORIFIC couldn't face the challenges from THE HITCHHIKERS!  No excuse 
for that!  What do people see in IRVIN FLETE?  His 14-46-0?  KRILL CAVALRY ain't 
talkin', but he's got 88 points.  FORD PREFECT didn't quite know what to make of a 
challenge he received from GOLDEN TONGUE of COLORIFIC, who is 21 points below him.  
GOLDEN TONGUE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he subdued FORD PREFECT and 
ended up with 85 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Congratulations to The Hitchhiker's Arthur Dent, Duelmaster of The Heart And Soul Of
Andoria.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Shomoe -- That was not such a great matchup for you.  I can thank the MUGs (Match Up
Gods) for my luck. -- Cowabunga

Sasher -- I guess I could say the same thing to you.  I was lucky, lucky, lucky.
Thank you, MUGs. -- Woof Woof

Bulldog (The Manager) -- Keep up the good work.  We Bulldogs (team) were the lucky
ones this round.  I suspect the next is YOURS. -- Kennelworth, Bulldogs

Nice to see you back Furry Furies, especially you, Cowering Coyote.  (wink) -- Bull
Moose

Ford Prefect -- You know I just do not like your type, don't you?  And you ruined our
Bulldog 5-0 this turn?!  Shame on you! -- Dogmeat (feeling like dog meat)

Berlam Foote -- You made my day.  Again. -- Cowlick

Dangerous Criminal -- You have to get up at the crack of dawn to compete with me!
Cockledoodledo! -- Rose Rooster

Hey, Corvo, red beats black anyday.  You knew that, right? -- Cherry Chicken

Caniliv Kat -- I wasn't sure I could beat you, but I had to try to protect Purple
Pig's position.  Nothing worked, however, for us critters.  (sigh) -- Purple Pelican

Yo, Arthur Dent.  You beat me fair and square and deserve the DM Title and the DM
Column.  Kudos to you.  Good luck on your graduation. -- Purple Pig

Yo ho ho, ye Hitchhikers!  Nice 'en turn.  Bloody fine!  Aye. -- Mino, Animal Farm

I don't think we've got the energy to do personals today.  That tourney spy report is
exhausting. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry, who didn't personally DO the spy report
but were involved in supporting roles

All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
