                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I'm going to address the arena here, rather than the PAs, then let "Rocky" say
a few muddled words.

Daisy January -- Those are kind words and Dain has been a bit distracted lately since
you returned to Andorak but I think I'm reeling him in.  He just can't stop talking
about you!

I had so much more to say but right now it seems trivial, my heart is heavy for a
comrade and brother in arms right now so I'll give it to the big guy:

This is Thing, I say Scarborough you good warrior but I just too hard for you now.
You no be ashamed but walk proud.  I will not be fighting yu this turn I dont think,
'dis turn I be challenging this bed wetter person and hoping to make them go sleep-
sleep!  I am with honor to be Duelmaster again and say I gonna' go back to the Gold
Dragon Inn to get a bit drunk!  Salut!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TOBIR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  FRAG 'EM ALL! posted a 
nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  FRAG 'EM ALL! had cause to 
celebrate, after *IRONFIST* got 27 points by beating DEAD MAN WALKING.  Win some, 
lose some.  Speaking of which, *IRONFIST* was winsome, after beating DEAD MAN WALKING 
and seeing him lose 19 points.  BOWSER found out that TOBIR isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been 
walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  If challenges were horses, I WET MY 
BED! could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not despair!  I 
shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Bowser -- I'm just angry at the world, nothing personal! -- Angry Shew

Honey Pup -- I wish I were invisible.  If I was, I'd be undefeated, however, in
fairness, I am a tricky fellow! -- Visigoth

Honey Pup -- I knew I was outclassed but you taught me well, and I thank you kindly.
I usually say "blow me". -- Haywood

The Assassin was noble indeed to give me yet another win! -- Dead Man "still" Walking

Shadowcat -- Good riddance, you cad!  Nothing personal against you as a person, but
as a warrior I am no match and that makes me............. -- ANGRY Shew

Visigoth -- (glowering)  Okay, maybe you weren't LAUGHING, but you were SNIGGERING.
That's worse!  I hate it when people snigger at me. -- Bowser

Haywood Jab -- Not good enough, not at all good enough.  It needs more than a jab, it
needs a lunge and a really good bite. -- Honey Pup

*Ironfist* -- Who told you that asterisks were fair?  Why don't WE get asterisks,
too?  It's like having morningstars on your ears, and every time you turn your head,
you HIT me with them!  It's like having four hands! -- Juno the ill-used and
disgruntled

Obnoxio -- Well (panting), how was it?  You told me I had to do better, so I did, and
it worked, right?  Pretty good, huh? -- Woofer

Wow, that Shiftyeyed Volunteer is the most SUSPICIOUS looking character I've seen
since the postman came!  But I ripped him good. -- Andillia

Ghost of Tomath Woodman, Convincian Hero -- You shouldn't have come into my yard
without permission.  I'm a guard dog. -- Woofer the unrepentant

15 December 2004
The Company of Brothers Alliance would like to welcome Azereth as our newest member.
We are sure he will be an asset to both our alliance and the dueling community! --
Baphomet, Co-Founder T.C.B.

24 December 2004
Due to requests, the Turf War IV will be postponed until turn 225 (approx May/June
2005).  Sorry about the inconvenience. -- Baphomet, host of TW 4
