                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail, Sunset!
     Well, how about that, 3 turns in a row and a bunch of Challenger Champs I have
beaten.  I guess I shouldn't spout off too much, crow don't taste good.  Jade put up
a good fight and had a good record, so I was worried I bit off more than I could
chew.  I see a slew of new blood in the arena and it is a good thing.  Maybe it is
time to properly welcome them to Sunset like our forefathers would, hunt them down.
Bottineau, congrats on graduating.  I hope to see you there soon.  Time to go, my
manager is telling me my challenges to Jackass and Bottineau have been sent and to go
out there and try and make 4 turns.  Good luck to all and most of all to me.

P.S.  Sensei, where you at?

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SUNSET needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, THAT 70'S 
TEAM, but CARNAGE CANARIES was just too good to be stopped.  Uncool, KANO CLAN.  I 
mean 0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  The guys at STORM WARNING like really pulled together to get a 4-1-0 this 
turn, moving up by 4.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, YAKUZA!  'Cause 
they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 5th!  This new team IRONIC TAILS shows promise, and 
that's all I'm going to say (for now).  MVP award for FRANK RIZZO!!!?  THE JERKY 
BOYZ's proud of him after beating RAZOR MELODY and getting 27 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  UGLY FOG got smashed by GINA TAILIA, and lost 15 points!  JACKASS 
thinks his 14-14-0 and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  
Any bets?  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome JACKASS.  Aren't TRIAL & ERROR proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy 
that said SUNSET's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at Wildlife Unlimited?  Don't 
look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  CARNAGE CANARIES was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 42-31-5 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret 
why YAKUZA's been avoiding CARNAGE CANARIES so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?  Like, is ORIGINAL STINK popular, or what?  It was challenged the most in all 
of SUNSET!  It's got a 5-20-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when 
I found out POTOMACC challenged HURRICANE.  After all, haven't GRIM FANDANGO and 
STORM WARNING had a long standing duel in SUNSET?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but HURRICANE wants me to write about it since she beat POTOMACC.  
Satisfied?  SOLOMON BLOODBANE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair 
fights.  He challenged TVEDEN.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell 
me.) I thought SOLOMON BLOODBANE showed great skill and promise when he lost to 
TVEDEN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All SUNSET ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Nick -- My friend, you are confused.  I don't run Carnage Canaries, I believe C.
Canary runs that squad.  And I will be active here for as long as I play this game.
-- Sylvester Frothingslosh

Overlord -- I wouldn't blame the Saint for your name getting out.  I wrote a personal
directed toward you last turn or the turn before.  More than likely that is where she
got her info. -- Sylvester F.

Bott -- Congrats on the invite.  If it were me, I'd have sat out a couple of turns to
get to fight champs an immortal though....  But I'm sure you'll do well in Freshman.
-- Sylvester F.

Sensei Jan -- You are wise to avoid. -- Sylvester F.

Solomon Bloodbane -- Bad, bad match-up for you. -- The Villain

Original Stink -- I for one hope you don't DA. -- Sheba

Glimmor -- When/if I ever get my damage up you are toast. -- Brand

All -- Sorry I was absent ad-wise last cycle; May is a crazy month for me; lots goin'
on. -- Stik

I Magi -- I was hoping someone would pick up where Merlin left off, welcome back!!
Care to speak up as to your new ownership, or are you playing coy, too? -- Stik, Grim
Fandango and The Bloodbanes

Welcome also and welcome back to Made Men and The Horsemen, may your stay in Sunset
be long and filled with losses to my stables!  Come on down to the Broken Bone after
the fights, first round's on us! -- Stik, GF and TB

Carnivorous -- Apparently I don't float like a butterfly too well!  Nicely done on
your part.  I hold no hard feelings, especially since I'm now immortal!!  For my last
bout I'll be using my faves (which weren't quite what I thought they were, damnit!)
and for once making no challenges, perhaps we'll meet again one last time.  If not,
good luck and watch your back! -- Lord Protector Bottineau

Hurricane -- Not nice at all, that. -- Carnal, still limping

Kitty Morsels -- Take that, fuzzball. -- Sonja B.

Tveden -- Illusions of grandeur, perhaps?? -- Simon B.

The Villain -- You won the battle, but with learns like that, I can take a few lumps
and maybe, just maybe, win the war! -- Solomon B.

Stinkalogical -- Swing all you want, but he who swings last...usually gets the glory
AND the chicks!! -- Potomacc

Brand -- Persistent, I see.  But still pathetic.... -- Glimmor

C. Canary -- I WISH it had been a TC, but TV will have to do for now. -- Stik

Overlord -- Please, write on, cover or no! -- Stik
P.S.  Are you old school?  I don't remember you from the day, different manager name?

Sly -- Oooh, looks like you've got some issues with the new guy...happy
bloodfeudin'!! -- Stik

Papa Bear -- My apologies for claiming the only Sunset TV from last tourney, didn't
see Stone Killer in there yet again!  Congrats! -- Stik

OK, people, we've got 20 STINKIN' LUNGERS in this here arena, still too many
strikers, and not much else.  Let's be a little creative out there with those
replacements, huh?? -- Stik

All -- Hey!  Look at me when I'm talking to you, flapjack!  I'm Frank Rizzo!  Frank
RIZZO!!  Get the cotton outta yer ears there, sizzle chest!!  I'm coming for you.
YOU!  I'm swingin' at the fences.  I'm good like that!  I got a prediction!  I bet I
won my first fight, right?  G'head, look at the rankings!  I won didn't I?  Guess
what?  I'm goin' undefeated in this dump!  That's right, milky lickers!  20-0-0.  No?
Watch me...maybe it'll be 20-0-1 or 20-0-2 or 20-0-3, huh?  You get the point.  Tha's
right, top unchartered team for ten turns then top chartered, then I'm leaving this
trash heap.  You got that, fruitcakes?  Rizzo!  Frank Rizzo!!  FRANK RIZZO!!! --
Frank Rizzo

Bottineau -- Congrats on the invite to the Isle. -- Abarsis for Storm Warning

All -- Gads!  Unable to attend the festivities for a week and our equipment is
sabotaged when we return.  Spears that break, shields ditto.  We're buying several
large hounds to guard the Guildhouse from now on. -- Storm Warning

Carnal -- Manager said we owed your stables a challenge. -- Hurricane

New & Returning -- Teams that is.  (Horsemen, Magi, Made Men, Dominion...)  Welcome
to Sunset!  The place is really hopping.  Even Klep is talking smack!  What fun. --
Abarsis the Slaughter Priest

Bottineau -- You detestable Dwarf, why didn't you leave me the throne?  I gave you
all that special coaching, and you just walked off without a word! -- Madam Butterfly
the extremely annoyed

Monsoon -- I almost wish it WOULD rain, but then I remind myself that as long as it's
a DRY heat, it's "better."  Yeah, right. -- Sara Divine

Bell Bottoms -- Insult to injury, you trying to bury me in the sand when I was on the
verge of shock and the orderlies were trying to carry me out. -- Rudi Jamos
P.S.  Besides, I was standing up.  You can't bury me while I'm standing up.

Black Razor -- You think it's FUNNY to make jokes about "shaving me close," eh?
Well, it ISN'T!  You hurt me so much I CRIED. -- Lugo Beloski

Victory -- Oh, my!  I didn't realize your name was a portent for ME.  Thank you! --
Miranda Grace

Berylstar or whoever runs That 70's Team -- Nice work on knocking me out of first
place.  Don't get comfy; I want it back. -- C. Canary

Klep -- Thanks. -- C. Canary

Sonja B. -- Nice comeback. -- C. Canary

Jade -- Thanks for the poor learns. -- C. Canary

Ugly Fog -- That was an ugly attempt to scum Kitty Chowder.  Thanks for the skills.
-- C. Canary

Sharky -- Thanks for the easy win.  Now where is that damn samurai! -- C. Canary

All -- Good luck at the Face to Face.  Wish I could go.  Hopefully more than one
Sunsetter can win a prize. -- C. Canary

All -- Alas, I've been searching arenas far and wide for one such as this.  We are
quite uncertain what our stable can expect from you, but you can be sure we'll bring
marvelous feats of splendor, brilliant acts of stupidity or uncanny stretches of
blandness for your viewing and battling pleasure.  I bring you the IRONIC TAILS. --
Mr. Twister

10 May 2003
To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
