                         Ode to Dirt Nap

                Lucky for you, I'm the Cluckeroo
             Connecting with the ladies is what I do
            When I'm not putting you on your derriere
             While sipping me some Chanticleer, I'm
                 The ruling Chicken who's Alien
              Slapping people claiming they salient
         Like I was Catholic and they were Episcopalian.

             Watching you drop with your pride torn
                Like the battle of Little Bighorn
                        And you a newborn
             Get with it, I ain't no Foghorn Leghorn
            Admit it, you're going about it all wrong
                       And I already won. 
            You're a joke, I say, you're a joke, son
                         Pay attention.

            Take some notes, brat. Did I mention that 
               I'm cutting but you ain't bleeding?
               Showing you skill you were needing
         But you ain't picking up what I'm putting down
                   Too busy acting the clown.

         I'm the Alien Chicken but you the one clucking
              After you leap at me and I'm ducking, 
                    Snuck in and struck chin 
                        Like a dump truck 
              You were dumbstruck while I ran amok.

    I'm Chicken Little and your sky was falling, I was all in
            Called your bluff, you ain't good enough
   To walk like Chicks walk, I'm the eraser and you the chalk
      Lecturing up at the blackboard while you lack a sword
        Trying to find your vocal cord but unable to talk
         Watching you bleed all over your throat reeds,
               You need to make time ta take some 
                      Fine rehabilitation.

           Like the Christians nit picking on Wiccans
                Throughout history, you sicken me
             I'm Chicken Licken and not done kicking
              Your clock is ticking, wait and see.

                                          -- Cluckeroo

                                      SPY REPORT

Hello to all of my pretties in Seam!  It is wonderful to see you once again in this 
beautiful Andorian jewel.  When the job was posted for this assignment, I called in 
every favor owed me to get the post.  Nothing beats the hot springs in Seam!  I 
suggest the gladiators (and managers) take advantage of such luxuries to take away all 
the soreness from fighting in the arena.  Oh well, you didn't come here to listen to 
me prattle on about the bathhouses, so let's take a look at the arena action.

We have an oldie, but goodie taking over the throne this turn as Smokehead retakes the 
Duelmaster title.  A random match up found him face to face with the reigning 
Cluckeroo.  It was a brutal bout, but Smokehead came out on top.  I would daresay that 
Smokehead will be one of the newly opened Seam's first immortals.  I will not jinx the 
young warrior in any way by mentioning life, death, and the Fates.  Oops!  I need to 
stop talking.  Congrats to DMobster and his Thirsty Thugs for reclaiming the title, 
and condolences to Vlad and Cluckeroo on the loss.

While they did lose the throne, I'm Not Eggbert can stand tall as Seam's most avoided 
team.  It is a minor consolation in light of the throne, but I suggest taking any 
positive and basking in it.  It looks like Painmaster and his House of Pain guild 
avoided Vlad's crew the most.  The bravest challenge came from Stanza this turn, as he 
went up 30 points after Geoplastique.  It was a gutsy challenge that paid off big as 
Stanza beat Geoplastique and took home the Chartered Recognition Leader award.  In 
another challenge worthy of note, Cobra Monsoon of 7th Sanctum challenged up 25 points 
to beat Kininvie of Thirsty Thugs.  There were no down challenges this turn.  I 
repeat, there were no down challenges this turn.  The 3 blood feuders challenged 
upward, going a combined 2-1 respectively.

We missed the 3 inactive teams this turn.  Hurry back, boys!  Darque Knights took over 
the number 1 position on the shoulders of a 3-2-1 turn.  The former top team, Thirsty 
Thugs, fell to 6th place with a 1-4-0-1.  Way of All Flesh made the biggest leap to 
reach the top 5, climbing 8 spots.  Though not in the top 5, Lost Sentinels and Big 
Lake Justify made gains this turn rising 5 places, while Huckle's Cats moved up 6 to 
11th.  The biggest falls this turn came from Philanthrolords and I'm Not Eggbert.  
Aragorn's crew dropped 7 places to land at 18th.  Vlad's 1-4-1 turn caused the I'm Not 
Eggbert squad to plummet from 5th to 16th.  Way of All Flesh looks to have the 
momentum to make a charge for the top spot, going 8-2 over the last few turns.

This was an uncharacteristically deadly turn for the gladiators. There were 8 deaths 
and only 2 came via the Dark Arena.  Holy Ship! lost 2 as Daring and Gallant's crew 
members plan burials at sea.  Two veteran gladiators also died this turn.  Ava Crowder 
of Big Lake Justify and Oban from Thirsty Thugs have fought their last duels.  Both 
gladiators were nearly as old as the reopened Seam itself with 15 fights to their 
credit.  Does losing more experienced gladiators make managers more vindictive?  Does 
it even matter?

That is it from me, my sweets!  I hope each of you have a wonderful holiday season.  
There are various celebrations going on all over Alastari now.  I'm not sure what each 
of them mean, but I've never been one to turn down a party on account of my own 
ignorance to the reasoning behind it.  All I know is the Temple of Denmat, here in 
Seam, knows how to throw a party and I must attend... for the sake of journalism.  
Yes, that sounds right!  On behalf of the Yellow Press and Commission, farewell!

Mr. Hobbit -- I cannot give you the treasure you seek...it is not in my possession, 
but I can fill in some of the blank spaces on your map.  Perhaps we can search 
together, the way we sought trouble when we were bellicose lads chasing the moon and 
antagonizing the sheriff. -- Nile

For your Yuletide bloodletting pleasure, sung to the tune of "Winter Wonderland."

                          Slay bells ring, are ya listenin'?

                        Beneath the moon, blood is glistenin'!
                         A grisly sight, we're happy tonight,
                         Watchin' all the Dark Arena fights!

                       In the daytime we can catch the action,
                         as the Duelmaster defends his crown!
                         All the criticals and bloody drama,
                     and if you're nasty you can challenge down!

                              Later on, by tavern fire,
                             managers, they'll conspire,
                        to face unafraid, the challenges made,
                            Duelin' in that Alastari land!

Wishing all good D2 managers a Happy Holidays!

                                          -- Stik and Grim Fandango of Sunset
