     Wulfhere stared across the long, stone table at the gladiators before him with
disdain.  They were demanding a kinder, gentler manager?
     "Do you not know how my surname was earned," he mused, "how many skulls I
separated before I saw even fifteen winters?"
     "The games have changed" Caelum lamented.  "It is more difficult now than ever
to climb the ranks and claim the throne of Duelmaster!"
     "We need time to hone our skills without the shadow of the Bandit Prince or
Shewish Giant haunting our dreams the night before every bout," cried Bonecrusher.
     "We are together on this.  If you are to return to Riztab and have our swords at
your service you must swear an oath, Wulfhere." demanded Scarheart.  Thorgrimm nodded
in silent agreement.
     Wulfhere drained the ale in his giant stein, slammed it on the table with a
satisfying thud that echoed through the hall, and pulled on his beard with a grimace.
"What about you, Sorak?" he asked.  "Are you with the rest of these scared pups?"
     Sorak had his feet up on the giant stone slab, spinning his shortsword on the
tip of his finger and had given no heed to the conversation until now.  "They worry
too much," was his reply, "but if we are to be a team, a united 'Force of Five',"
(they were calling themselves Force of Five, named after a long dead team of
gladiators Wulfhere oversaw in the early days of Riztab), "then with them I stand."
     "So be it", Wulfhere roared.  "You will have twenty duels to show me your worth
on the sands before you have to fight by torchlight for your life.  That is my oath."
     "I have a feeling I'd better stock up on kegs of ale for the games to come,"
Wulfhere grumbled to himself as he staggered back to his quarters, "I heard that
Sleepy guy has his own special brew."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in RIZTAB since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, DREAMERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought HIGH JINKS was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, BLOODSUCKERS' 2nd moved them up to 3-2-1 place.  ARENA FELINES showed RIZTAB 
what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 5-0-0.  A 
team with purpose!  A team with the skill to back up their boasts!  Getting a 4-1-1 
their first time out is FORCE OF FIVE.  Laughs were big at DREAMERS while they 
watched NIETZSCHE clobber GROTESQUE ZOMBIE.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  DEVAR THE TRAITOR was reminded on the sands why CAT 
TAGIOUS is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I 
hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DREAMERS!  Management 
must be dealin', as the boys at ALL HALLOW'S EVE ain't reelin'!  DREAMERS' mad!  What 
do people see in DAVE COOK?  His 11-6-0?  THE LAWMEN ain't talkin', but he's got 65 
points.  SUGAR JANE didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she received from 
THUNDER CAT of ARENA FELINES, who is 22 points below her.  THUNDER CAT perhaps got 
his just desserts, seeing as he defeated SUGAR JANE and ended up with 59 recognition 
points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Who will dare fight TOM SMITH, after he returned 
from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 17-10-1 is 108, and has he points) SOCRATES, 
with his forgettable 11-14-0,  was put to death by STANK SHANK in a forgettable 
match.  DREAMERS didn't seem to mind very much.  Here's some advice:  study your 
opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

All -- Bit of a late turn, chaps and chapettes.  'Til next time. -- Jondeaux

Feline Grin -- Gods, I HATE that stupid grin!  If I had a canary, I'd stuff it in
your mouth just to hide the stupid grin.  Or a fish, yeah, a big, slimy, scaly,
smelly fish, I'd stuff THAT into your fat puss. -- Sugar Jane, not feeling very sweet

Fuzzymotto -- Take that, you bloodsucker! -- Tillerita
P.S.  Why suck blood, anyway?  Seems like a dumb thing to do, when there are lots
more interesting fluids around.  Milk, for instance.  Good stuff, milk.  Or grape
juice (try to get it BEFORE it ferments, though).  Heck, even water can be good
sometimes.  Better than blood, anyway.  Yuck.

Hippy Chick -- Actually, your hips aren't THAT bad.  A little broad, yes, but that's
good, makes a good foundation, you know?  And we aren't talking "broad as a barn
door" here.  Only...hmm, maybe a shed door. -- Alourshin

     You've been taking charm classes, haven't you? -- Ed.

Crazed Clifford -- And no wonder.  I saw what you were drinking at the Black Barge
last night, and that would make ANYBODY crazed.  Take it from someone who has poked
around behind the scenes:  EVERYTHING served at the Black Barge should be avoided. --
Autumn Leaves

Wusthof -- You just reminded me how much I hate golems.  Nasty little bucket of
bolts, aren't you? -- Tala Gog

20 April 2005
I have returned after a five-year absence.  I expect all tithes, gifts and bequeaths
to resume as normal. -- Magic Man

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.
Street Legal

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!
