+ ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ Sword Opera ]H[ + ---:--- + ]H[ +

     Ace glowered at the people clustered in the other end of the long, drafty hall.
With the arrival of Black Victor, he had been completely shut out of the opera cast
and the work of rehearsal and general preparation.  He hadn't much liked being in the
opera, but he liked even less being thrown out.  It was an added grievance that the
Butterfly hadn't insisted on Victor wearing the loathsome curly blond wig.  If he'd
thought he stood a chance against the Advanced gladiator in a fair fight, he would
have challenged him to a duel.  Killed him, too--let the Butterfly ship his body back
to the Isle for resurrection.
     But he'd watched Victor move, watched the mock duel with Lugo Beloski that was
being developed for the big scene in the opera.  Any man who took Victor on for real
stood a strong chance of losing, even dying, and for him, Ace, dying would be
permanent.  No way he was going to risk that.  There had to be some other way to
handle this.  Some sneaky way.  After all, nobody said he had to be a hero in private
life....  Come to that, it turned out this Black Victor guy had enemies, some of the
Lord Protector enemies, who'd be willing to help rub his face in the dirt.  Ace was
looking forward to that, even if he didn't much care for his graduated teammates
Livid and Vidal...and Gore Juss, too, a tasty dish, but what a temper!  Oh, yes,
they'd make Mr. Hero Black Victor look like dirt, and if the damned hoity-toity
Butterfly didn't like it, too bad!  After all, it was in keeping with her story: the
Hero Canary foully murdered and all.  She should thank them for adding
verisimilitude!
     But not now, not yet.  It'd be too conspicuous if they did it now, and besides,
some of his conspirators had an axe or two of their own to grind, first.  Well, he
could wait.  No problem.  He could wait as long as it took.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Sunset,

     It's always a great honor to graduate from an arena as unforgiving as this one.
Hopefully, I will be able to kill Tsunami in my final fight and repay Storm Warning
for the Villian's untimely death.  And then it's off to Free Blades.
     Meow Mix will probably go inactive unless my replacement is has stellar as I am.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SUNSET brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, CARNAGE CANARIES, since 
BOOK OF STINK took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If Wildlife 
Unlimited is buying drinks for NASTY MOB's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be 
dry before long.  A 2-0-0 makes for a big thirst.  Now let's all watch GRIM 
FANDANGO's heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big 
talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see KITTY CHOWDER win a 
fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KITTY CHOWDER beat RUDI JAMOS and RUDI 
JAMOS lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to 
defend the throne, CLAW has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm 
earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as SANTO STINKO takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Wildlife Unlimited, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
SUNSET's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  CARNAGE CANARIES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was YAKUZA.  Ha ha ha ha!  MIRANDA GRACE was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a 
little credit to SONJA BLOODBANE of THE BLOODBANES for challenging up by 18 to RAZOR 
MELODY.  SONJA BLOODBANE won to get 86 points of recognition.  And we have VIVAMORT 
in a challenge, going down 8 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought VIVAMORT 
showed great skill and promise when he was overcame by THE BUTCHER.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Harlots of Hell -- 2 challenges in one turn?  You must not know how vindictive I am.
Know that I will return you 4 losses. -- Sylvester, mgr. Blackest Pride

MotS contestants -- Don't get disheartened by my rise into the champs so quickly.
I've competed in each of the previous contests and died multiple times and even if I
manage to survive this one, I will stop when I reach 20fe and give you losers a
chance to catch-up. -- Sylvester Frothingslosh

Pototaemac -- You can't even beat tsunami and you wanted to fight me?!?  Silly lad.
-- Claw

Klep -- Well, at least you wrote a column, sort of.  Scum??  I don't run scum
anymore.  Not real ones anyway.  My wastes and pikers are just as likely to take you
out on wounds than exhaustion any day.  Good luck to you in the MOTS!! -- Stik

All -- I finally got Carnal out of here, and none too soon.  His faves came out all
right after all, got the BA which is my first SL with that fave.  He is a pretty
average rollup who came back blessed in damage and endurance and +4 attack, exp on
the overview.  He'll be representing in Talahya soon! -- Stik

Mordy -- That's one loss.  Oh so close to planting you.... -- Sonja Bloodbane

Veg-o-matic -- Nice challenge, not a good matchup for me. -- Glimmor

Sylvester F. -- Champs already??  SIMMA DOWN NOW!! -- Stik

Brick -- Those learns were sweet right before tourney time, thanks! -- Syrano
Bloodbane

Chunky Famine -- I'll be back when I can do some damage, perhaps. -- Montrieux

Holy mass exodus!!  Congrats to Claw and the Sons of Satan on their graduations, make
us proud! -- Stik, TB and GF

Welcome to I.Q. Central and Air Attack!!  Stay awhile and spill some blood! -- Stik,
TB and GF

Volleyball -- Who taught who a lesson?  I think I have learned mine.  Be seeing you
later on in the game, friend. -- Stormchilde

Hello all, I am Rogan and I and my compatriots appreciate the warm welcome you have
all extended to us thus far.  We have been in retirement for quite a few years so
please be respectful and try not to beat us too harshly.  Our manager is Myrrdin but
I will be his mouthpiece here for now.  'Til we meet upon the arena sands, may you
drink deep and live well. -- Rogan

Hey, thanks Ace. -- Wrathchilde

OUCH!!  Oh me oh my I might need to find a new line of work...ouch...ouch.... -- Moon
Beam

I had about enough of these men in my neighborhood mouthin off so I am here to show
for the girls.  Hope I don't embarrass you too much, guys, but it takes quite the man 
to beat me into submission, and thus far there haven't been any! -- Emnity

Let's see, only 9 (!) warriors advanced to ADM in the five turns I've been back.
Somebody must be passing out bribes left and right to clear the way to the throne. --
Damion

Stinkalogical -- Life would have been hell, but some clown thinks I know enough to
jump to the Isle.  More likely retirement, though.  War Flail, for heaven's sake!
Well, let's see if I can knock off Claw as a farewell.  Unlikely, but I gotta try. --
Vivamort

Gale Force -- What did you say to Mallia before the fight?  He has *never* gone off
like that in his career! -- Damion

Origional -- Bad style matchup but I thought I would learn something.  I may be back
for another lesson; you teach well! -- RR

Carnal -- (wincing)  Why does learning have to be so painful? -- Miranda Grace
P.S.  I WASHED my face.

Compactor -- Like I'm trash?  No way! -- Rudi Jamos

Rogan -- You're fairly villainous yourself.  Go villainize someone else. -- Lugo
Beloski
P.S.  There should be good will between villains.  We have to stick up for each
other, because nobody ELSE will.

Wrathchild -- You really stick in there and keep your wrath warm, don't you? -- Ace

Beavis -- Anybody tell you you're a bad liar? -- Talper

Stik -- I know, I'll have to watch what I say, won't I?  It was not at any point my
intention for one of my warriors to kill a lunger. -- Nick

Ed. -- Because they don't wash 'em, I guess.  But it's the pits peeling your own
grapes--I know, I've tried.  I usually end up slicing 'em in half by accident, and
sometimes the fingers go, too.  So, somebody else can peel my grapes. -- Ace
P.S.  Also, I can't stand to LOOK at peeled grapes.  Disgusting.  Like frog's eggs.

     I think it'd be easier to wash them.  Or change to oranges or something. -- Ed.

Magna Don -- Today, I was a peeled grape. -- Talper

Persiana -- A good massage is always good. -- Ace

Ugly Fog -- Thanks for all those skills.  See you soon. -- C. Canary

Sensei -- Good fight again. -- C. Canary

Horns -- Another easy win.  Thanks for sucking. -- Tweety

Ska-Boom -- Good fight again.  It was closer than I thought it would be. -- C. Canary

Sluggo -- I like beating up on defenseless cat lovers. -- C. Canary

Nick -- I would contribute to the opera, but I lack any artistic ability.  But do
feel free to mention how good I am and how I continually beat the Bloodbanes.
Nothing too grandiose. -- C. Canary
P.S.  On a serious note, good work so far.

Lugo Belaski -- You have thumbs?  Then why do you keep dropping your weapons? -- C.
Canary

To the Graduates -- Congrats! -- C. Canary

All -- I told you my Harlots were feeling better. -- Sluggo

Skull Stroker -- Perhaps next time you'll get a chance to swing...perhaps. -- Si-
Shree

Ace -- Such language!  I expect more from my heroes. -- Persiana

Sensei Jan -- Do I frighten you so much? -- Hi-Jinx

Sensei Jan -- You better watch out.  You better not cry.  You better not pout.  I'm
telling you why...I'm gonna' getcha'. -- Persiana

Taisho -- You were my Hero!  I wanted to vote you in for president when you got rid
of that milky nipple fest, Frank Rizzo!  An honor to spar with you, Sensei. -- Razor
Melody

Little Fujiko -- Nice bump and learns.  Watch your challenge chart next time, pal. --
Mr. Twister

Robin Red Breast -- You are the death of me, and so soon after the acquisition.  My
big brother sucked too (a.k.a. One Man Swarm). -- Magna Don

Montrieux -- Well fought and thanks.  Best of luck eating more. -- Chunky Famine

Ron Ron Clou -- No offense taken on the death of "Monkey Grizzle."  I was fairly
satisfied with his stats vs. Class as a (PS) 13-16-10-17-9-6-13, but each gladiator
must continue to strive to achieve their own goals.  Submitted faithfully, -- Mr.
Twister

                       TOURNEY FREEZE CHANGE -- ADVANCE NOTICE

     Beginning at the Winter Face-to-Face in Tempe (January 2004), we will implement 
several changes affecting tournaments.  The tournament announcement for the upcoming 
FTF and future tourneys will reflect these changes.
     First, we will eliminate the tourney freeze for all regular DM warrior classes.  
Regular DM warriors will not be classed ahead of the tournament, but instead will 
fight according to their FE on the date of the tourney.  There will still be a freeze 
for the ADM classes, occurring on the same timeline as before, approximately 6 weeks 
before the tournament.
     In addition to the above change, the warrior classes will be slightly altered.  
The new tourney classes will be as follows:

                DM Tourney Classes                 ADM Tourney Classes
              ======================              ======================
                  0 FE:  Rookies                        Freshmen
                1-4 FE:  Apprentices                    ADM
               5-10 FE:  Initiates                      Eligibles
              11-20 FE:  Adepts                      ---induction---
              21-30 FE:  Champions                      Contenders
                31+ FE:  Challengers                    Primus

     All regular DM tourney classes will remain solely FE based.  All ADM classes will 
now be based on warrior characteristics (i.e., the ADM split algorithm), including the 
Freshmen class.
     The Gateway and Primus arenas will be merging before the FTF to form one top 
arena.  These warriors will be split into two tournament classes, the Contenders and 
the Primus classes, again based upon their characteristics.  More information on this 
will be published in the newsletters for those arenas.
     If you have any questions about the above changes, please contact Customer 
Service.  Good luck in your games.
