     Wow, these Andorian Fruit Juices are wonderful.  Here I am across half the world
and through the marvels of magic and technology, I am getting information about the
happenings way back home in Talcama!  'Tis a wonderful world we live in, for sure.
Nobody wanted much to do with Duelmaster GROBRAUM, as he was unchallenged and his
challenges didn't go through.  As such, the commission saw fit to match him up with
BILLY THE SQUID.  GROBRAUM won within the first minute and held on to Talcama's
throne and earned himself a spot at the Isle of the Eye next turn in recognition of
his fine skills and venerable status.
     VINCERE AUT MORI led the way in avoiding PENTARCHIE-18.  Not surprisingly,
PENTARCHIE-18 is not part of the BR contest.  A new team/warrior was the most
challenged warrior, OPEN BAR.  YAJIROBE got his challenge through and handily
defeated OPEN BAR in 2 minutes.
     HELTER SKELTER was the team to beat this turn and VIOLENCE FETISH was the one
who was able to do it, outgunning TRIGGER HAPPY.  The rest of the HELTER SKELTER crew
all won their fights.
     Needs require me to make this short, so as my last words for this turn, I want
to point out that SOLSBURY HILL won his first Dark Arena fight this turn.  So perhaps
the old adage is true.  If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.  Of course,
most warriors don't have that option in the Dark Arena.... -- Sherik

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
