     What are ya'll starin' at, ya limey FREAKS!?!??!!!!!
     Oh yeah, uh....waiting for the MOTs update I suppose...<ahem>....on with the
show then!!
     Quicksilver here, none other than, none are better than, that is!!  Takin' a
look at the goin's on in this here little contest we've got brewin!!
     Manager on the Sands, they call it, MOTS I say!!  Any manager that wants to
participate names a new warrior on his/her/its stable after themselves and throws
them into the fray!!  First warrior to make it to graduation wins the prize, five
spankin' new team rollups and a DA monster named after them for six months!  Now that
that's outa the way, what's shakin' in "Ye Old Arena" here!
     Mr. Twister holds on to his tenuous lead despite failing to bounce back after
his title bout loss, getting trounced on his challenge, ouch!!  Our illustrious host,
Sylvester F., took the turn off after reappearing last cycle, what's up with that,
Sly??  Don't rest on those laurels too long!  Looking up from below are Rude Buddha
and Sensei Jan still hanging out in adepts.  Old Rudy continues his climb with
another one-minute putdown while Sensei licks her wounds from a Son of Satan, risky
business messing with the devil (or any relation thereof!).  Klep takes the turn off
while Damion starts his climb up the ladder with an aggressive challenge, keep'em
coming!  Slaughter Priest and C. Canary still bringin' up the rear, holding the inits
down with a coupla losses, heh heh!  Without further smartass comment, here are the
rankings:

1) Mr. Twister/Indy                  10-4-0 86 pts
2) Sylvester F./Frothingsloshers      5-3-1 74 pts
3) Rude Buddha/Indy                   6-3-0 49 pts
4) Klep/Indy                          4-3-0 46 pts
5) Sensei Jan/VC                     10-6-0 42 pts
6) Damion/Indy                        3-0-0 30 pts
7) C. Canary/Indy                     4-6-0 20 pts
8) Slaughter Priest/Indy              4-3-0 17 pts

     That is all she wrote for this turn, good duelin' to ya!!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SUNSET games.  Former top team SONS OF SATAN was 
unseated this week as COSMIC FREAK OUT moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at SWORD OPERA's 
guildhouse after a 0-5-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 12th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week BLACKEST PRIDE went 3-2-0 to move up 8 in the rankings.  My praise to 
CARNAGE CANARIES for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully 
fought round deserving of notice!  I ATE A PUTY TAT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ROGAN and was awarded 12 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TIEN put down AGENT 99, 
causing her to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was not present 
for the title fight this week as GLIMMOR boldly challenged TAISHO in order to strive 
for the Duelmasters honors?  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail GLIMMOR, Duelmaster of SUNSET!  Informants "close" to the city champion have 
told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SUNSET.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in SUNSET these 
days is NASTY MOB.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of SONS OF 
SATAN last week.  Busy avoiding NASTY MOB?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my 
ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after BELL BOTTOMS.  
Watch your back!  JADE must really be harboring a grudge against the IRONIC TAILS 
guild!  Merciless, 21 challenged down MR. TWISTER points this week to duel with she.  
All the city knows the duel went in favor of JADE.  I shall not fail to spread the 
word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that SYLVESTER F. posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized PERSIANA JONES.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
SYLVESTER F. defeated PERSIANA JONES.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of 
steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My hearty congratulations EMNITY, for 
thy revenge upon LUGO BELOSKI, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is 
sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

Compactor -- Very close.  I think things would have been very different if I had not
broken your weapon. -- Ronald

Papa Bear -- You and your cursed, silent horde of lungers, I tell you.... -- Stik,
looking forward to the Butcher's graduation or death

Taisho -- Care to go again?  There's a little more on the line this time! -- Syrano
Bloodbane

Ack!!  I've run out of puds to bloodfeud and now I'm in the challenger champs?  Have
to fight somebody for real, I guess.... -- Glimmor

Air Attack -- Pretty good anti-aircraft, eh? -- Drane

Trippy Hippy -- Take that, you long haired hippy FREAK! -- Skydancer
P.S.  We're counting the challenges....

Welcome and welcome back to I Magi, Fever Pitch, Fizban's Follies, and Under the Sea,
hang around a while and spill some blood!  Drop by the Broken Bone tavern post-duels
if you can still walk and have one on us! -- Stik, Grim Fandango and The Bloodbanes

Damion -- 10-5-1 last three cycles, looks like you're shaking the rust off!  Welcome
to the MOTS as well, better late than never! -- Stik

Well, more housecleaning....  Phate was an AB experiment, 21-6-13-7-9-7-21 trem.
damage, but managed to lose to the one TP he fought.  Steelaway was a 13-4(+1)-15-15-
15-8-15 SL, I should know not to make trip-15 slashers anymore, they never turn out,
but I hate to give up on a semi-decent rollup without giving it a chance.  Chance
given, he sucked. -- Stik

Jade -- Congrats on your invite, represent us well!  Hope your manager didn't come
back just to get you out of here! -- Stik, GF and TB

20 stinkin' lungers guys??  Come on, show some imagination with those new recruits!
-- Stik

Glimmor -- Pick on somebody else, you turd!  At least somebody with equal fight
experience. -- C. Kabob

Hurricane -- Well, that rematch sucked. -- C. Canary

Rogan -- Ha ha!  Tell me what "Argle Barf" means?  Does it have to do with a skillet
or me beating you. -- K. Chowder

Moon Beam -- Good fight.  See you around. -- C. Canary

Corsair -- What do you have against canaries?  What have I done to deserve such
treatment?  Brute! -- C. Canary
P.S.  I hope you don't mind a little payback.

Wrathchild -- Well, heck.  That "nearly dies" bit.  I'm catching merry heck at the
guildhouse over that, and it wasn't ME dropped you on the way to the Infirmary.  I've
got an undeserved record for villainy, you know, just because I have a "villainous"
face.  I don't REALLY want to kill people.  At least, not MOST people.  Have you
considered wearing more armor?  I mean, I'm a basher.  Hitting people hard is what I
do! -- Lugo Beloski the type-cast and mad about it

Slaughter Prst -- Maybe we could reconsider this gladiator stuff together some time?
It has it's moments of, hmm, moments when it really needs reconsidering, let's say.
-- Miranda Grace

Liquid Goliath -- You're some kind of glue, yes?  Because otherwise, why can't I get
my armor unstuck where you hit me? -- Talper
P.S.  Unless maybe somebody--Ace, for example--is playing an impractical joke on me.
If he IS...well!

Bad Acid -- You were ready for that kind of experience, weren't you?  I mean, I was
just trying to give you what you expected. -- Ace

Jade -- Damn, the sand again.  I hate that. -- Rudi Jamos
P.S.  And is Nick is quick to tell me, the best way to avoid being buried in the sand
is to win fights.  (sigh)  NOT what I want to hear as I'm digging the sand out of my
ears.

Wrathchilde -- (alarmed look)  Try not to skewer Lugo fatally until after we present
our opera!  He has the villain's role, and I don't know of anyone who would do it so
well. -- Madam Butterfly
P.S.  He CLAIMS that his unfeeling personal last time was because he didn't realize
your brother had died.  Which may be true, as he is not the brightest bulb on the
tree.
P.P.S.  Although why trees should have any kind of bulbs on them is beyond my
comprehension.

Team Rage -- Seriously, I was doing the personals in a hurry last time and didn't
realize that Lugo had killed again.  KD of 5, aiming right arm, but he IS a basher.
-- Nick

Liquid Goliath -- Why not both?

Damion -- You really are the Son of Satan!  Who the hell else would put a hit out on
Saint Twister? -- Ironic Tails

Taisho -- We salute you!  Duelmaster, graduate, and best of all Slayer of Rizzo.
Fantastic! -- Mr. Twister

Wild Thing -- You had better luck last time.  Perhaps we'll meet again?  Shouldn't
you be getting out of here soon? -- Razor Melody

Persiana Jones -- I should have brought a bigger weapon.  Your clone didn't compare.
-- Mr. Twister

Talper -- I kind of feel bad about that challenge, but then again you thumped my
stablemate and almost me. -- Liquid Goliath

Starfish Sam -- Next time show up with at least something that is borrowed, blue, old
or new. -- Red Eye Love

Mr. Canary -- Whatever do you mean?  I simply waited for you do something and you
were ever so slow. -- A very innocent Hi-Jinx

Twister -- I guess one cheap win deserves another.  Consider that payment for that
tourney fight where you scratched my elbow.  I must ask, why did you use you TV
challenge against little ol' me and not the Duelmaster? -- Persiana

Mr. Twister -- To tell the truth, I am not sure how I got here. -- Ska-Boom

Damion -- Welcome to MOTS. -- Rude Buddha

28 January 2004
All -- I send out this invitation to all teams and managers.  A new Alliance has been
formed.  The Living Essences Alliance is being formed to join forces in an effort to
eliminate common foes and to help the joined warriors grow and learn to the best of
their abilities by offering suggestions and advice.  It doesn't matter what arena
you're in, or if you're in another alliance already, as of today.  This Alliance is
open to one and all!  If you are interested in joining, please DIPLO me, or send a
personal ad to DM 93's newsletter.  If you wish to join beyond March 2004, send a PA
to DM 82.  Come join the fun! -- Dagan LifeGiver, mgr. Shadow Warriors (DM 93)

28 January 2004
This notice is to formally introduce our young alliance, CHAOS INC.  We consist of
APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and now RUDE BUDDHA.  If we aren't already there, we
WILL be coming to an arena near you soon!  Hope to see you all at the ZALCON II.

4 February 2004
Greeting from Jhans, DM 36 -- In 2 turns the kLk will host our first annual "St.
Valentines Day Massacre" in Jhans, arena 36.  (Kill Contest)  The contest will begin
on turn 450.  It will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461 the winners will be announced.
There will be 3 separate categories, the team with the most kills, the alliance with
the most kills, and the warrior with the most kills.  For the manager of the team
with the most kills a PRIZE of 10 ROLL-UPS will be rewarded (or $50 deposited into
his account).  No need to declare yourself in the personals.  If you are in DM 36,
you will be part of the contest whether you like it or not.  We encourage as much
trash talk as you'd like.  All teams, managers, and alliances invited.  Please
contact Polarius (mgr. of Blitzkrieg) in DM 36 with questions.  Or you can email me
at jamieptmo@hotmail.com.  Good luck and see you in the sands. -- Polarius
