                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Me again.  Of course.  Nobody knows how to milk a situation like me.  Nobody.  I
thought I'd give you a treat, and tell you about my Adepts Mailer results.  For an
unmaxed waste (Cool, isn't it, how waste and goldbrick seem to fit so nicely
together?) I did better than I thought and predicted.  Remember, last week, I guessed
1-3?
     fight 1 -- Aimer, I defensed him, ripped him, and held the init to take him down
     fight 2 -- Lunger, he worked me over in one, I held him off, barely, then round
                two was MINE
     fight 3 -- Plunger, she put the move on me with lots of crits and I fell
     fight 4 -- Waste, he was dressed more offensively, but I got in 14 swings for
                the 4 minutes and the win
     fight 5 -- Striker, he had me down, but I turned the tide in two with a crit.
                He did not teach me a thing!
     fight 6 -- Piker, I didn't think he would ever give up pounding on me, but with
                a last second crit in the 4th, I am 5-1.
     fight 7 -- Ripper, I hate rippers!  He could crit; he could parry; he was better
                than me.
     fight 8 -- Striker, he wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise and I was kaput in
                one.
     skills learned -- 10, with a very valuable adex for me.  5-3.  Not bad at all
for an untimed goldbrick.  I'll take it.
               Goldbrick, DMIII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in WILLAF this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, GOLDEN EAGLE fought STOGA STEEL and 
gained 17 points and contributed to GOLDEN GLADIATORS' 5-0-0.  STOGA STEEL has lost 
to GOLDEN EAGLE, falling 14 points, while helping make MAXIMUM RESULTS a 1-2-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, GOLDBRICK kept PUNNY AMINALS' warrior, BAABRA 
LAMMONT, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the MAXIMUM RESULTS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on WILLAF, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided MAXIMUM RESULTS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
MAXIMUM RESULTS' warrior STOGA STEEL.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that WILLAF has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, WILLAF, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in WILLAF, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Bruar -- I had no lift!  Couldn't fly.  Looked like a turkey!  You had me for
Thanksgiving. -- Golden Eagle

Baabra -- I guess I am more offensive than I thought? -- Goldbrick

Convicted Assassin -- Thanks for all your help.  I think you were framed. -- On
Golden Pond

Cris Croft -- You again?  Oh, well, who am I to complain.  You need to practice your
swimming, you know? -- On Golden Pond

Fangs -- Can't you teach me more than that?  I need skills!  (Or gold for my
collection.)  Just don't bite me! -- Gold Cache

Maximum Results -- BIG point gain.  Kudos.  I must be a pretty incompetent manager,
since my 4-1 only achieved 4 points.  I may have to ask you for advice. -- Midas

Goldbrick -- Too bad there isn't anyone else we can stand around and stare at, isn't
it?  Still, you make a good mirror.  And everything looks shiny and rich reflected in
your surface. -- Baabra Lammont

Silence Is Golden -- Does that mean if I'm quiet, I'll get paid more? -- Cris Croft

Gold Cache -- Who wants gold?  Give me blood. -- Fangs Ardente
P.S.  Pandora of the Pretty Legs is practically my idol.

This Convicted Thief, one of many, no doubt, is pathetic.  But we all knew that. --
Sardo Grackel

Huh, Sardo just HAD to go and get the Thief all stirred up, and the wretch turned
around and CUT MY THROAT!  I'm going to haunt Sardo for that. -- Ghost of Arman d'Lo
P.S.  Really, this was an amazing death.  11-17-11-13-17-4-11 TP in APM, H.  And the
CONVICTED THIEF kills him!  Hmmm, neck, jaw, throat, the Thief was "eagerly seeking
the death blow"?

Gold Cache -- I don't care about your gold, I just want to bite you.  Hold still,
dammit. -- Fangs Ardente

Golden Eagle -- May your feathers stuff my pillows and be my hat decorations! --
Damsel Dacy

Midas -- Your team, and skills, are on the top for now.  Congratulations.  Soon I
hope to bury your gold! -- Coyote

Jorja, Midas -- Can a rollup be so bad you send it to the D.A. on its firstfight?  I
do not--ever.  Maybe I should?  Any thoughts? -- Coyote
