                             Notes from the arena champ.

Zuwayza,

I, Tmarack, am your new Duelmster.  Well, Traq, unfortunate for you it was a 
Thursday.  Don't let my 6 fights fool ya, I'm primed and ready to fire!  I wish my 
competitors luck, for you will need it and some if you meet me on the sands!  Hmmm, 
who will I go after 1st?  We shall see, soon!

                              Tmarack

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see KOOKOOYCOCOABLUNTS win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
KOOKOOYCOCOABLUNTS beat MURPHY and MURPHY lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
LADY DEATHSTRIKE challenged ZUWAYZA's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting bland, as TMARACK stays top dog 
in the city.  The Drunken Ox, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From ZUWAYZA's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  QUASI-LEGAL OPS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE SIERRAS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, BLUE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUWAYZA to get a drink than The Drunken Ox!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
ZUWAYZA.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

28 January 2004
All -- I send out this invitation to all teams and managers.  A new Alliance has been
formed.  The Living Essences Alliance is being formed to join forces in an effort to
eliminate common foes and to help the joined warriors grow and learn to the best of
their abilities by offering suggestions and advice.  It doesn't matter what arena
you're in, or if you're in another alliance already, as of today.  This Alliance is
open to one and all!  If you are interested in joining, please DIPLO me, or send a
personal ad to DM 93's newsletter.  If you wish to join beyond March 2004, send a PA
to DM 82.  Come join the fun! -- Dagan LifeGiver, mgr. Shadow Warriors (DM 93)

28 January 2004
This notice is to formally introduce our young alliance, CHAOS INC.  We consist of
APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and now RUDE BUDDHA.  If we aren't already there, we
WILL be coming to an arena near you soon!  Hope to see you all at the ZALCON II.

4 February 2004
Greeting from Jhans, DM 36 -- In 2 turns the kLk will host our first annual "St.
Valentines Day Massacre" in Jhans, arena 36.  (Kill Contest)  The contest will begin
on turn 450.  It will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461 the winners will be announced.
There will be 3 separate categories, the team with the most kills, the alliance with
the most kills, and the warrior with the most kills.  For the manager of the team
with the most kills a PRIZE of 10 ROLL-UPS will be rewarded (or $50 deposited into
his account).  No need to declare yourself in the personals.  If you are in DM 36,
you will be part of the contest whether you like it or not.  We encourage as much
trash talk as you'd like.  All teams, managers, and alliances invited.  Please
contact Polarius (mgr. of Blitzkrieg) in DM 36 with questions.  Or you can email me
at jamieptmo@hotmail.com.  Good luck and see you in the sands. -- Polarius
