                             Notes from the arena champ.

     At least M. Chardinee had the basic decency to lose the fight, allowing me to
take the title on a win.  But the big question remains unanswered (so far):  Can I
KEEP the title?  We'll see.

                                     Penny Lopez

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
WILLAF brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  POWER LEGION turned their 3-2-1 turn 
into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see AMPERE win a fight 
and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DUNROE MINH beat ANIS and ANIS lost 8 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost 
to VETERAN MERCENARY, and PENNY LOPEZ has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With 
PENNY LOPEZ clearing the throne, PUNNY AMINALS of PENNY LOPE takes a proud seat as 
WILLAF's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
WILLAF?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  WILLAF, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
PUNNY AMINALS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like GOLDEN GLADIATORS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would 
be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, DUNROE MINH was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for WILLAF's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  MUKWA, a glorious 1-7-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad MAXIMUM RESULTS.  Titanium shields and bamboo 
daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the WILLAF arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Mukwa -- If you keep that up, you can challenge me every time! -- Heart Of Gold

Penny Lope -- I felt awfully good about my performance in my last fight.  I am sorry
that you had to lose.  But look what it did for your stable mate, Penny Lopez, who
catapulted to DM with that ERUG (Easy Roll Up God) match over a Mere Chardinee. --
Golden Dome

Penny Lopez -- Congratulations on your golden title. -- Midas and The Golden
Gladiators

Anis -- Well, it now appears that you are too much for me, also.  Ouch! -- 24 Carat

What?!  Anis, none of us Golden Gladiators want anything to do with you!  We're
praying to the RUGS as we speak! -- Gold Bullion

Coyote -- A TP is just one of the ten possible styles.  Any of those styles are
workable.  Our Consortium brothers and sisters are often asked what are your favorite
styles, and this chart summarizes our (not just mine) collective feelings:
               FAVORITE TO RUN          MOST COMMONLY RUN
Top group          WS, PL,                TP, BA, ST

Bottom group       PS, AB                 PL, PS, PR
     Mino (for The Consortium)

Coyote, Jorja -- This small arena does not lack in talent.  It lacks in participants.
-- Mino (giving his personal assessment)

Anis -- Why thank you for the well-deserved compliment you gave me. -- Golden Dome

Penny -- I do think Fool's Gold is still out there in the tower.  I think he had it
up for sale at one time, but couldn't get any serious buyers, and is just now lazing
his way through life.  Nothing, even the old ghosts, seems to bother him.  He'd
probably appreciate some company. -- Golden Dome

Zokharj -- I'll take a rotunda, but it had better be golden.  Or else! -- Golden
Dome

Noxon -- Yes, well, you know how it goes.  So you have a name that's coming and
going.  Big deal.  If you catch it hard, then it's GOT you coming and going.  No
safety margin, see?  You're in trouble and no way out.  Life is hard. -- Ondo Fleur

Golden Dome -- I suppose I should be sorry to see you go, Domie, but...nah.  Have a
pleasant trip to the Isle  Say hi to folks.  Check out Crysalis.  All that sort of
thing.  Maybe someday I'll follow you, but then again, maybe I won't.  It isn't like
the Isle has lots of great things going for it. -- Penny Lope

The Ambitious Guard is a certified hunk, but that doesn't mean I'm happy to have lost
to him.  Ouch. -- Kildilli Dall

This Dangerous Criminal is a poor specimen of the type. -- Dunroe Minh
P.S.  Or perhaps he was having a bad day.

Midas -- Probably not worth it. -- the Pennys

Noxon -- It's YOU that needs to find the tub. -- Dunroe Minh

Coyote -- "Small arena" is a relative term.  I'm in a couple where there are a total
of six active warriors, my team and ONE other warrior.  THAT is a small arena, if you
will!  Compared to about half the arenas I run in, this one counts as healthy. --
