                             Notes from the arena champ.

Another turn, another loss for Mystic.  But at least he's learning skills rather
well.  Before too long, I may have to put up a fight.  I, on the other hand am not
learning skills very well.  When I look at the skills learned, I think I may be your
Duelmaster for years to come.  So I hope you are all happy with me up here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZUWAYZA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, JAGUAR WARRIORS 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by CURTAIN CALL!  Way to go 
CURTAIN CALL!  MVP award for VIN DIESEL?  XXX's proud of him after beating SIMON'S 
REVENGE and getting 27 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  VED BUENS ENDE's match 
with CHAOS cost him a loss of 11 points!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome MYSTIC.  Aren't ANARCHY proud.  (Oh, 
my.) Who was the wiseguy that said ZUWAYZA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Drunken Ox?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  Can CURTAIN CALL's CHAOS be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZUWAYZA ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  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

Mischef -- I am terrible, I know it.  But I will have a second win before I die.
Maybe three or four more wins.  I can't keep on losing.  Can I? -- Sforno

Gulf Coast D. -- Hi there.  You're going to be my second win. -- Sforno

Slow Burn -- Nicely done.  But I don't think you have what it takes to beat Adara. --
Ved

Malign -- Ha!  And I wasn't even using a power weapon. -- Ding Hao

Chaos -- Next time I'm bringing a bigger shield to hide behind! -- 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!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
