                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I never expected to get this far in the arenas.  I graciously accept being the
great champion of this arena and will do my best to make you all proud of me.
Besides, I am sure you all would rather have a Parry Strike your leader than some
Parry Riposte named Woofer.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TOBIR, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  THE DOGHOUSE?  Who?  PLAYPEN is the top team these 
days, buddies!  Practice pays for LARG GENIUS - 11 WT, who pummelled TRUSTWORTHY 
SCRIBE, to pocket 21 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 12 points to MITOCHONDRIAC.  (Discrete enough, HOPE?) Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, BUT PEREGRINE is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE DEATH SQUAD, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BIO WARFARE, so did that sorry team 
shy from THE DEATH SQUAD Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good 
oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, HOPE is the most challenged warrior.  GOLGI APPARATUS 
challenged ANDILLIA!  Who says BIO WARFARE are just a bunch of wimps!  GOLGI 
APPARATUS of BIO WARFARE kept hers wits as she bested ANDILLIA.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Justice was served as CRACK BABY fought CYTOPLASMIC in bloodfeud.  Well done, THE 
DEATH SQUAD!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

The Death Squad -- Our condolences on your loss.  Cytoplasmic has never been a
killer, until now.  We will celebrate the win and kill, and honorably await your
bloodfeud. -- JGW

Ghost of Bam Bam -- The challenge given was just a product of our rankings.  I
thought you were going to get back up anyway! -- Cytoplasmic

I really got to get some real warriors to fight.  These NPCs can be a drag. --
Mitochondriac

Cardnal -- We've got to work on your "people" skills.  You are supposed to be a good
warrior and let ME win! -- Golgi Apparatus

All -- I have been gone for two years; first turn back 4-1 and Duelmaster, come on
guys.  I have to say it is good to be back. -- Warden, mgr. Raptors

All -- I may be named Hope but none of you will have any against me. -- Hope

Peregrine of Raptors (so designated to distinguish you from Peregrin of Totem, who
sometimes fights here) -- Good work!  I'm glad not to have the column to do this
time.  What I normally do to columns is not, well, not appropriate in this context,
and I'm just too old to learn differently. -- Woofer

Hope -- You're a raptor?  Odd.  Of course, you're Shewish, and I have always felt
that Shews had definite raptorial tendencies.  The "wild" ones, not the arena Shews,
which need resouling. -- Andillia

What do you do with the Delarquan Sailor?  You chop him into fishbait and hope the
arenamaster doesn't stop you before the deed is done. -- Chichi-Hooey

Tippi Turtle -- I was hoping to tip you over, but I guess I wasn't hitting you low
enough.  I'll work on that.  Ankles, go for the ankles.... -- Wurf

Goshawk -- Bad match for you, unless you've spent time as a rookie in a tourney.  But
(sigh)  I 'spect you'll be shooting upward quickly.  That's what the wings are for,
right? -- White Fang

Cytoplasmic -- Managers never listen.  That's why they manage, so they can give
orders instead of take 'em. -- Woofer

Bio Warfare -- I appreciate another team that writes personals, but it's easier to
respond to something with content. -- Leeta, The Doghouse

Bio Warfare -- My warriors insist that I retract that critical statement, on the
grounds that they made comments about your names last time.  So I do retract it.  But
NOW could we talk about something more interesting?  Breakfast, perhaps, what IS for
breakfast today, anyway? -- Leeta

Mitochondriac -- Leeta is such a pill today!  I was named, gods know why, for an
'erb, or a herb, I don't know which.  Andorian Dill.  I don't LIKE the stuff, you
understand, it always leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but that's what I was named
for. -- Andillia

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
