                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hmm, it would appear that today, Dayne Jerous did not live up to his name.  He
was probably having an identity crisis, being another one who has been hit by the
Commission's "Height Jokes."  If he's a dwarf, I'm a pussycat.
     As for Elnean last time, well, good luck to you.  But you're right about your
manager's attention problem--he's blown his free fights by failing to send in any
strategies at all.  Life is tough, but some will live, and I wish you well.
     Of course, if the Funky Folk should go inactive, the whole arena might shut down
for a while....

                                     White Wolf

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for (PLAIN WRAPPER), 
who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing VED BUENS ENDE like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was JERRY 
ATTRICKS, who dropped 14 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
ELLE.  Our battling duelmaster WHITE WOLF has managed to hold the title, fending off 
DING HAO's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, JAGUAR WARRIORS.  Can 
you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ZUWAYZA arena.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

just go along to a meeting with him and see what they do. -- Sports Ill

I really wanted to send the Mordant Deserter back to Mordant in a body bag, but the
arenamaster, that well-known party-pooper, stepped in at the last minute.  I suppose
it's hard to replace Mordant Deserters here in the east. -- (Plain Wrapper)

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
