                             Notes from the arena champ.

Looks like I'm back after succeeding in my challenge of the Parry-Riposte, Blood
Sports.  He did pony up three skills, so I'm a happy camper!  Anyway, two more turns
for me and then I'm out for a while to work on my golf game and sit things out until
the next Adepts tourney....

Jaguar Warriors -- You chickens!  Sitting out Venenso last turn.  I wasn't going to
bloodfeud him again with a massive, despicable down challenge like I did on Turn 559.
No, no, no...I was going to let Metellus give him a whirl last turn.  Oh well,
Metellus probably would have lost anyway.  Regardless, we like you Jaguar guys and
everything is "cool" at the moment as far as we are concerned.

Aurora...what do I do?  TV challenge you?  You are still an unknown quantity to me,
despite my upset random match-up victory against you back on Turn 557 when I first
landed in the Duelmaster's chair.  I'm willing to bet that Sierra guy sits out this
turn.  Looks like a come and go tourney deal for them.  So here it is:  I will avoid
you both and hopefully draw a random matchup?  Why so conservative, you ask?  Well, I
only have 12 arena fights and 11 tourney fights.  Aurora still has 25 regular arena
fights and who knows how many tourney.  Why risk it?  I may still beat him again as
well.  Or he may come out and slash me to ribbons....

We'll see what Turn 561 brings.  Until next time...I remain....

Dardanius, Duelmaster of Zuwayza
Ides of March (226)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  TEAM CHAOS were a bunch of 
dogs after IDES OF MARCH got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Ya gotta 
be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
WALI'S FINEST is now ranked 4th with a 5-0-0 turn.  What's with ISIS?  She actually 
beat ZUWAYZA's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight. 
Major screwup at TAHAHN HAH.  FINESSE lost 18 points to JEWEL.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe FINESSE will provide more easy wins...  Try as she might, AURORA 
wasn't good enough at persuading DARDANIUS to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  In my day, no team with a 384-495-17 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, IDES OF MARCH?  What do people see in BLOOD SPORTS?  His 15-6-0?  
THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS ain't talkin', but he's got 98 points.  I hate going to the 
effort of writing about the kind of fights that GIMME SOME SUGAR gets in.  He fights 
people like PUBLIUS, 10 points below.  I thought GIMME SOME SUGAR showed great skill 
and promise when he bested PUBLIUS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of ZUWAYZA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Dardanius -- Certainly it is not surprising.  A boy being scared and avoiding a woman
of power, but...aren't you the so called Duelmaster!  Such shame you bring upon the
crown of ZUWAYZA.  Perhaps this final bout I may yet again see your boyish looks
again. -- Aurora

To all warriors and the managers that I have fought over the last 7 months on these
bloody sands of Zuwayza, I bid my farewell to you all.  I have been swept off to ADM
(I see your smile Dardanius).  To those warriors that remain that I have dueled in
the past (and beat ) I enjoyed each battle and every drop of blood  (mostly yours)
spilled.  Please don't be sad over my leaving, I am sure my Team Chaos teammates will
fill my shoes nicely, and perhaps we may yet meet again in the next life. -- Aurora

Fregadera -- Perhaps your shortspear had a blunt tip.  Must be since your 5 shots in
the first fight didn't do much but that hatchet in the 2nd fight sure did me in with
only 2 whacks.  Then again, maybe that was my fault for trying to stop it with my
forehead...OUCH!  You know that's gonna leave a scar. -- Solstice

Nifty Nickel -- I was trying to remove your head from the rest of your body.  How did
I do? -- Hideki Hao

Ong-Bak -- Your name confuses me.  And how can a dwarf move the way you do? --
Matarse Fury

Soltice -- No luck for you this time. -- Fregadera

Teerapong -- Good fight.  Very close. -- Rechoncho

Hot Rod II -- I did NOT lick you!  What do you think I am?  A pleasure slave?!  Stop
the rumors! -- Matarse Fury

Dardanius -- I wish someone would take YOU for the Rides of March.  Except that
they're the Rides of April now.  Oh, well. -- Blood Sports

Hideki Hao -- Hao now, brown cao? -- Nifty Nickel
P.S.  Hey, it's a weird day.  I couldn't resist that.

Gimme Some Sugar -- Your teeth will rot, and I'll LAUGH. -- Hot Rod

Metellus -- It's a bad plan to become frantically careless in the air. -- Flight
Journal

Publius -- (recoiling)  I can't just SELL you the front cover! -- Times

Matarse Fury -- It's this cursed catalytic converter.  I just can't get the power. --
Hot Rod

Our congratulations to Aurora. -- the Magnificent Mags
