                             Notes from the arena champ.

Go figure!  The first successful Parry Lunger I run to ADM without dying looks on
paper like a pile of dung.  I can't even give a reason for his success.  Manager?
Not likely with a PL.  Faves?  Doesn't look like it.  Bonuses?  I'll let you judge
that.  Good rolls?  Laughable.  Stellar training?  He's above average, but nothing
stellar.  Unstoppable stats?  I guess that has to be it.  Regardless of why, I will
not complain.

Dave:  12(2)-16(2)-9-11(1)-21(1)-7-15(1) Great End, Normal Damage
Current Skills at:  16/10/16(-3)/22/13(+4)/18(+1)
Faves:  LO/LO LO (never used LO)
45 learns and 7 trains in 44 FE.

And so I'll be looking for a couple replacements.  Sadly, my attention to DM right
now is at a low and after looking at what Barney represents, two turns after creating
him and having already sent strats in for turn three, I realize that he doesn't make
it on my team.  Sorry, but Lungers who are cursed in attack, get a bad damage roll,
and then don't train out of their bad damage roll don't get to fight for me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Sherik here.  Malic hates doing these reports and so he's giving me leave to do
the spy report as long as I don't mention anything about you know what....  But not
to worry.  I fully expect my lawyer to fix this situation shortly.  But it just takes
time.  Enough about me, though, because it is the fighting you want to hear about.
     JOLEE BINDO retook the throne from the one who took it from him.  JOLEE spoiled
DAVE's going away party in a popular 6 minute fight.  Of course, when you beat a Lord
Protector, the commission often makes sure you are noticed.  JOLEE was noticed and
will leave Talcama next turn.  LA TOUR also got his invite.
     There was only one death on the sands, but it was a big one.  VORN matched up
with SALT and quickly pounded him into the sands.  And SALT did not get back up.
Quite stunning to watch, I hear.  I wish I had seen it, but I'm not allowed out right
now.
     Luckily, they can still get me all the stats for my report.  Sixteen warriors
moved up a recognition class, with VYKTAN's 20 point jump the biggest class jump.
Only four warriors dropped a class.  Down challengers went 9-3, up challengers went
4-1, even challengers went 0-1.  'SLOSHERS was the most challenged warrior and won
against the young THARKON.  CENTER FOR OLDS was the most avoided team, receiving 4 of
the 18 avoids.  WASTELAND could be called the team that avoided the most, though the
same warrior avoided CENTER FOR OLDS twice.
     In team news, WASTELAND went 4-1, but could only get a single point in the BR
contest.  Meanwhile, SUPERIOR FORCES 6N went 3-0 and gained 3 points in the contest.
These two teams appear to be tied for the lead, each needing 2 points to win.  With a
tourney before next turn, it will be fascinating to see how it turns out.
     The scum seem to have forgotten how to scum, for their ten turn record is
terrible.  Aimed Blows are leading the way, followed by Lungers.  Total Parries have
been put down to 6th of the ten styles.
     I will do my best to convince Malic to let me do the spy report next turn.  No
promises though.  I'd rather if this all just went away.  But I can't talk about
that.  Hope to be back shortly. -- Sherik

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
