                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Let's make this brief.  FINALLY I am a Lord protector and outta here!  I am sure
that most of you are just as happy about that as I am.  For my final DM comments, I
will tell you about me.

     bumped to 12-18-15-9-18-7-15

     no other experts
     skill learn rate 1.33
     guessing at faves -- who knows?
     was 0-15-5 with BS
     so maybe BS, low/low, learns decise

May you fight your best and your luck run true.
               Silence Is Golden

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon WILLAF, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  YAMABUSHI posted a nice gain, to come in 5th.  
Everybody loves a winner...  PUNNY AMINALS had cause to celebrate, after CRIS CROFT 
got 19 points by beating ON GOLDEN POND.  HORUS MANN certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to HASAN AL-AZRAD and losing 10 points in the 
process!  Can you believe it?  SILENCE IS GOLDEN apparently has better things to do 
as WILLAF's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater victory?  FANGS 
ARDENTE has taken his place as the top, as WILLAF's new Duelmaster.  So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in WILLAF avoid NIGHTMARE WRATH.  The warriors of NIGHTMARE WRATH 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as FAR TRAVELERS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, HORUS MANN is the most challenged 
warrior.  SIMON ST. JOHN challenged CRANKY  CORDUROY!  Who says FAR TRAVELERS are 
just a bunch of wimps!  SIMON ST. JOHN of FAR TRAVELERS kept his wits as he subdued 
CRANKY  CORDUROY.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  
Congratulations, STOGA STEEL.  The manager of EMOTIONAL PANTS should have sent CRAZY 
CAPRI to the Dark Arena for having a 6-6-0 long ago.  Fair play must not be a credo 
of MAXIMUM RESULTS, as STOGA STEEL permanently removed CRAZY CAPRI of EMOTIONAL PANTS 
from the competition in a mismatched fight.  Justice was served as SAKURON fought 
GARTH HALFOGIER in bloodfeud.  Well done, YAMABUSHI!  Ask not a spymaster for 
counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid WILLAF farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Siegfried -- I guess gold charm does not necessarily mean lucky charm.  I salute my
better. -- Gold Charm

Eleesia -- You made me fly high and hard, but I finally brought home the food to the
nest.  I feel good! -- Golden Eagle

Chris Croft -- What a pleasure it was you.  And what a pleasure it is to graduate.
Thanks. -- Silence Is Golden

Punny Aminals -- Nice point gain, you sneaky critters. -- Midas and The Golden Glads

Dark Priest -- We TPs do NOT ruin all warriors' records.  I am greatly aiding my own.
-- Silence Is Golden (breaking the silence)

Ed -- Aren't grandchildren wonderful? -- Midas et al

Diaretic of Dark Tides -- I will copy the weapon/stat and skills/stat charts and send
in the mail, but it will probably have to be after I return from Orlando.  They will
be in a diplo shortly. -- Midas
P.S.  Yes, a difficult matchup.  Death awaits the unfortunate in the arena.

All -- Welcome to Willaf.  It is great to see the arena growing. -- Midas and The
Golden Gladiators

Darklings--- I can't say it wasn't entertaining.  Very good fights.  Gherez Goth was
10-7-11-21-11-11-13.  At 3-0-1 he already had seven attack skills.  Dammit!  He
climbed too quickly.  This should be fun going by the last round.  Oh.  Words ARE for
show.  We know that.  Don't whimper.  We can't help it.  You're too funny.  What are
you doing in the woods at night?  Something uh... cultish?  I am going to call the
police if I see you guys out there lolly-gagging around again.  You know this might
explain the troubling amount of missing cats in Willaf recently.  Your days of
interpreting entrails are coming to an end.  That stuff is illegal for a reason, you
know.  I take it you're a misunderstood group.  Your prayers are full of... hmmm...
well, wishes?  Feigned remorse?  But then you are all dark and wicked.  How
conflicted and solemn and... flat.  We are simply nasty.  Let's each of us leave none
standing. -- The Laughing Man

Billy Jack -- Don't touch me! -- The Dread

Horus Mann -- That's no way to prep me to be a future leader in this country!  If I
keep getting marks like that, I won't be able to play any sports. -- Mourndread

Joan of Arc -- Bravo.  That wasn't cat leather you were wearing was it? -- Wicked
Twist

Dark Priest -- Gurgle gurgle. -- Gherez Goth

Golden Eagle -- That was Impressive.  Maybe your skills are a wee-bit higher than
mine.  Let me study up before our third date.  Hugs and kisses. -- Eleesia

Team Yamabushi -- My condolences on your loss of Yorukai.  Hope you got a good roll-
up for him.  I await the bloodfued. -- Coyote

Willaf -- After a lengthy absence, my stable of gladiators from distant lands has
returned to Willaf to seek fortune, glory, and death.  Stay deadly, my friends. --
Obregon, manager of Far Travelers.

Sad Slacks -- A worthy combat.  -- Katarina

Silly Suit -- Ach, me armor is ruined... knocked down by a man in a clown suit.  I
need some ale. -- Angus

Gold Charm -- Sorry to spoil your coming out, Liebchen.  But our time on the sands
will not soon be forgotten. -- Siegfried.

Sakuron -- *snores loudly, then wakes suddenly*  What?  Is our match started?  Oh...
bother. -- Simon

Ghengis Kahn -- Ah, that's the way I like a fight to go. -- Fangs Ardente

Silence Is Gold -- People keep telling me that, but I don't think I believe it. --
Cris Croft

Crazy Capri -- Maybe even Capricious Capri, except that name's too long and would be,
hmm, Capricious Capr.  Jorja's gotten picky about name length lately.  I think it's
the heat making her generally cranky. -- Sardo Grackel

The Dread -- Ah, I felt it, be sure that I felt it! -- Billy Jack
P.S.  But my memory isn't much good, and I'm going to forget it again.

Mourndread -- Do you dread mourning, or mourn the loss of dread?  As an educator, I
want to get this clear. -- Horus Mann

Our congratulations to Silence. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals

Sorry, friends.  We are going to miss a turn or at least some personals as we head
off to vacation with our grandkids. -- Midas et al
