                             Notes from the arena champ.

Wow, that was unexpected!  Shows you what can happen when your manager gets lazy.
Rillion figured he would go ahead and use the extra free fight he won last turn to
get a new warrior on the cheap while he set up Loren for a tournament.  Being lazy,
he sent me to the Dark Arena and just told me to use the same strategy as I did last
time I fought.  So instead of ensuring that I did not come out alive by messing with
my weapons and armor, I end up earning a victory and becoming Duelmaster!  Miracles
can happen.  Now he is even considering keeping me alive.  Of course since I won some
more free fights I think that spells bad news for Brek & Brak.  I doubt he will be as
lazy again.  Well, let's see how I can do against one of the Champion class stand
ins, unless of course any of the Sierras return to the arena, in which case they can
have the pleasure of beating me instead.

Elnean, lucky to be alive

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUWAYZA games.  Take note that THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS 
has lost its top team spot, having missed the turn.  Where are you boys?  Did only my 
eyes note the 3-1-0 record which THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  SUE SHE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was 
awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, M. 
CHARDINEE put down ELLE, causing her to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  
Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, ELNEAN has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of WHITE WOLF, for with hers arena 
victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants 
"close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on 
beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZUWAYZA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ZUWAYZA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

sort of meaning to your team name? -- White Wolf

Dayne Jerous -- Well, probably, but also chivalrous.  A win is a good thing to have,
and I thank you for that one. -- Elle

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
