                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I'm still here!  Mystic lost his third fight in a row.  He doesn't have a
chance against me.  I keep challenging Jimi Hendrix, but he never shows up.  I guess
he knows he doesn't have a chance against me.  I'll leave my challenges open this
turn, so if you think you can take me, give it a try.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZUWAYZA.  MVP award for GULF COAST D?  
ANARCHY's proud of him after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  MALIGN's match with DING HAO cost him a loss of 8 points!  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  ADARA AL ZAHRA stopped MYSTIC dead in his 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  Can ANARCHY's SLOW BURN be more popular than me?  He 
was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Chaos -- Things aren't looking good for me.  But, I'm not going to the Dark Arena
until after I get my second win.  So would you all start up new fighters, so I'll
have someone below me to down challenge! -- Sforno Obadja

Mischief -- Almost had my third kill!  Oh well, it will happen soon enough. -- Ved
Buens Ende

Malign -- Next time I'm gonna use a bigger weapon. -- Ding Hao

Crazy -- I was just getting into my groove when you gave up! -- Deo Volente

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
