                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings, Riztab!

Hi, it is I, Thales, your Duelmaster for a turn.  Fuzzy Butt--excellent match fought
with great honor.  I'm sure with that skills you picked up in our fight you'll be
reclaiming the title in very short order.

A bit about me.  I started out slowly (losing 4-5 record at one point) and then found
my rhythm and here I am at 17-8 heading to AD.  I have 2 masters and 2 advanced
experts.  Who'd of thought?  Well, all I can say for sure is that Sleepy never
doubted my potential.

No challenges to report as this is my only turn with the title and Sleepy is giving
me a shot at a night fight.  Guess he figures that'll be the only way a mellow
dreamer such as my self will be involved in a kill.

Before I go let me leave you with a few words of wisdom:

ος σοφος η εοντα τα τ'εσσομενα &#96
ο τ'εοντα σοφοτα
τον χρονος: ανευ
ρισκει γαρ παντ
α

That's all from the Dreamer stable for now, time for me to go.

Good night Riztab,

Thales

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 2-0-0 outing, WHO DA MAN? has advanced 8 
places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was LEGION OF CHAOS who went from 
last turn's 3-2-0, to this week's record of 8-2-0.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
MACHIAVELLI, who flew up 29 points in the rankings after mashing CAELUM like a melon. 
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was CAELUM, who 
dropped 20 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MACHIAVELLI.  
What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most 
challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't 
sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  THALES made a Dark Arena Challenge against 
TILKIRRIN THE ELF this week.  Our battling duelmaster THALES has managed to hold the 
title, fending off TILKIRRIN THE ELF's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, DARK ARENA.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?  
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid MARVEL HEROES, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does RIZTAB really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  MARVEL HEROES + Weapons That 
go Boom = CULTS-R-US + Avoid City.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, FLY 
WHEEL went after SHE-HULK, who was higher by 25 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
FLY WHEEL subdued SHE-HULK.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  THALES defied all odds and slew TILKIRRIN 
THE ELF in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as TILKIRRIN 
THE ELF's meat is notoriously tough.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit 
and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in RIZTAB have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Alourshin -- My moniker derives from riding the nose on the big board.  Little
piggies extended over the lip.  (I plan to retire to the isle of Kolact...plaining-
breaks with serious waterfall)  How-some-ever if you'd like private lessons, that can
be arranged.  You too could learn to surf on Kessel Dhan Urt Lake...affectionately
known as the Mighty Bunny.  When It's mighty...which, admittedly, really isn't that
often...or much ta-do even when it is.  But, it's all we got. -- H-T Harry

Sorak -- You didn't lose.  Well, sure, the fight...you lost that, but I'd call you a
winner...except for the fight. -- Hang-Ten Harry

Flamin Raymond -- Yer not such hot stuff.  HAR HAR HAR. -- Dexter (what...am I the
only one with a sense of humor around here?)

Hawkeye -- Ah, well, some people just don't know what to do with sweets.  Your loss,
tough boy. -- Sugar Jane

Kalen -- You do the "thunder" bit very well, but while it might scare off, I dunno, a
wild Harkene in the woods, or, of course, all the game within sound, it isn't enough
in the arena.  Sure, I'm not the best gladiator to come down the pike, but I can beat
that much.  Try harder. -- Tala Gog
P.S.  Against someone else.

Comrade Kook -- You know, you go from kooky to weird to outright eccentricity, and on
you it looks good.  Colorful without being totally insane.  I don't GET this, you
know?  Because your cult IS totally insane.  So you should be looking a lot stranger
and not at all appealing, especially with red hair. -- Alourshin the confused
P.S.  Of course, maybe *I* am going nuts.

Ashbane -- What a great name!  I bet you get lots of work setting up spells to keep
fireplaces clean, yes?  That'd be a good thing.  I'm in favor of it, totally, because
I've cleaned out a few fireplaces myself.  A dirty job, and if nobody has to do it...
great! -- Winter Shadows
P.S.  I am not a Shew, I'm Harkene, and I'm going to get the Commission to recognize
this fact.

Cloninger -- You dirty dog! -- Tariliss
P.S.  And with the official comment out of the way, not bad.  I have always felt that
rolling around in the dirt with a dog was one of the fun things to do.  Sand is not,
perhaps, quite as good as dirt, but what the heck, it's what we have here.
P.P.S.  When did I get to be a golem?  Why didn't my mother tell me anything about
this?

Hawkeye -- Nah, us Shews heal fast.  But thank you for mentioning it.  It shows you
care, which so many gladiators don't.  This whole job makes us jaded sometimes. --
Tala Gog

Hang-Ten Harry -- He probably said something about, um, "don't surf off a rocky
coast," or "don't feed the sharks before surfing," would be my guess. -- Alourshin

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
