                             Notes from the arena champ.

The fools! (small f, big !) are torn.  They love cheering me on but are at odds with
my newfound success.  All of a sudden we're not the trampled upon underclass get'm-
next-time type who ends up delightfully smooshed picking sand outten our teeth.  You
know, someone they can identify with.  All of a sudden we're fer real champs and it's
kinda taken the wind outten their sails.  Thrown 'em for a loop don'ja know...
backing a winner n' all. -- Insightfull Ingie, Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RIZTAB games.  There were bitter words at NIGHT 
STALKERS' guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
16th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week ERRATA went 2-0-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  Did 
only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which DREAMERS managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  A new guild, BULBS, entered 
RIZTAB with a clash this turn, showing off a 3-1-1 record.  Indeed, a worthy addition 
to the city guilds.  TILLERITA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as she skillfully bested LEXAYN and was awarded 25 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, MONKEY put down MESCALINE MAN II, causing him to lose 
21 points of recognition in the process.  This time out MARX made his bid for the 
throne as he challenged INSIGHTFULL INGIE in an all out contest of skill for 
possession of the title!  The city has turned out in honor of MARX, for with his 
arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants 
"close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on 
beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  ARENA FELINES is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding ARENA FELINES.  Indeed it was HIGH JINKS.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  FELINE GRIN take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in RIZTAB.  I cannot but express pride for 
the fearlessness of AGGRANDIZIN ANNE who cast caution to the winds and challenged 
FELINE GRIN, a fighter 26 points higher.  The HIGH JINKS stable will be up late 
tonight, for indeed it was AGGRANDIZIN ANNE who claimed victory in the contest, 
ascending 31 in recognition!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that JIMMY CRACKCORN posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized TALA GOG.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand JIMMY CRACKCORN was 
beat by TALA GOG.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week marked the last days of DOOZY who at 8-5-0 was dispatched 
to the Dark Arena by the command of HIGH JINKS' demanding management.  Dark alleys 
may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of 
steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RIZTAB.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Sugar -- No canoodling, boss's orders.  Life's no bowl of cherries, Sugar. -- Hang-
Ten Harry
P.S.  Yes, he is a bossy boss

Sister X -- Hey X, Jondeaux says I'm finding too much pre-history in the coal chunks
which stave off wind and rain and such-like.  (actually it's a snug little
guildhouse)  Any idea what he's on about? -- Molly

Sugar Jane -- As the old guy says, "It's better to be a young june-bug than an old
bird-of-paradise." -- Aggrandizin Anne

Ganja -- Now there's a least popular list I can be proud of.  Never getting a single
attack off, constantly in retreat, slapped around from start to finish.  I think I
managed the impossible.  Making Molly seem like a thrill-a-minute. -- Comrade Kook

Molly -- Strange, how tenderly I feel towards you.  Like the little sister I never
had.  The little sister I always wanted to degrade, humiliate, overpower, and force
to do all my chores for me.  How lovely. -- Sister X

Jeezus Freak -- Wow, new experience for me.  In way over my cloud-scraping head.
Didn't realize the water got so deep. -- Brother Zero

Chic Sheik -- (recoiling in horror)  Not with BROWN shoes!  The Fashion Police will
GET you for that solecism, and I don't want to be anywhere nearby when it happens,
because you KNOW how, uh, generous they can be with their chastising.  (shuddering)
I shudder at the thought! -- Alourshin
P.S.  I've already had them on my case over the simple question of buttons.
(shuddering again)  I TOLD them those weren't pearl buttons, just ordinary plebian
musselshell, but they INSISTED on ripping them off my shirt anyway.  Just because
"it's too coarse a cloth, and such a blah color, too!, for pearl buttons, and you
should know better, dear."  Well, I DID know better, and I did NOT use pearl buttons,
but they're still keeping their beady (faceted jet) little eyes on me.

Robespierre -- No, no, you can't DO that.  Not purple velvet in the arena, especially
not with red trim.  Setting aside the fact that it is surpassingly ugly (the Fashion
Police don't care about that!  As if!), purple isn't YOU.  And you'll find it very
hard to clean, too.  The bloodstains will not "go with" the red trim, they will turn
BROWN and make the velvet all ooky. -- Autumn Leaves
P.S.  Really, I was doing you a favor.

Robespierre -- Soak in cold water and hand-wash. -- A Passing Observer

Aggrandizin Anne -- You really think so?  (pause for thought)  Well...you're probably
right.  But the thing is, I LIKE lavender foulard. -- Sugar Jane
P.S.  Maybe if the little spot thingees were some other color than mustard and green?
Because you're right about the mustard and green.  But it was the only lavender
foulard I could FIND.  At least, the only one with enough yards to cover me.  Oh,
well, back to the old cutting board....
P.P.S.  Would YOU like a lavender dress with lots of nice little spots on it?

Fuzzy Butt -- Fuzz is all well and good, very pleasant to stroke (although not
THERE), but it doesn't wear well.  It pills.  You ready for THAT to happen...there?
-- Tala Gog

Yoshii -- (recoiling)  Look, I'm an orc.  I can handle a lot of stuff.  But not the
sumo-wrestler thing.  PLEASE try something different next time we meet.  Maybe the
ninja get-up you had last month?  That one wasn't bad. -- Tillerita
P.S.  You're just not built right for a sumo.

Chic Sheik -- You are obviously in good TUNE, but seriously, that combination of
brown shoes with a blue suit will get you into trouble.  At least for the first day
and a half of the tourney.  After that, no one will notice. -- Alourshin
P.S.  Except maybe...Sandy.

Doozy -- Not if you brush regularly. -- Sugar Jane
P.S.  And floss.
P.P.S.  And use a really good mouthwash.

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
