                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, this is a surprise.  I am the first new warrior in 10+ years for your
friendly neighborhood Sons of Satan and here I am, sitting on the Duelmaster's
throne!  Thankfully I had a great tourney to help me out as I got my TV challenge
through on Gina Tailia.
     I expect to be here next turn.  The Hippy looks to be sitting out until the next
tourney--I'll challenge him just in case he shows up.  Bell Bottoms with 47 fights
should provide for a few learns.  He'll get my other challenge.  C. Canary got the
initiative on me a while ago and managed to beat me, but I have learned a LOT since
then--I think a rematch will go my way if it occurs.  Tofu and Suigenis I know little
about, but at this point I feel I can take on all comers.
     Advice from the DuelMaster -- Aim for the head and keep your kill desire high!
          Minos, Sons of Satan

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SUNSET!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week SWORD OPERA went 2-3-0 to move up 6 in the 
rankings.  MOMORO WA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested SUGAR MAGNOLIA and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, MOMORO WA put down SUGAR MAGNOLIA, causing it to lose 
15 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the 
spotlight was on THE HIPPY as it bore arms against the TV challenge of reigning 
Duelmaster MINOS.  Although THE HIPPY made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to 
topple the reign of victorious MINOS.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in SUNSET seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     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 GRIM FANDANGO.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Apparently the stalwarts of BLACKEST PRIDE are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  ANIMATE TOFU take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in SUNSET.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of SKYDANCER 
who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  
I thought SKYDANCER showed great skill and promise when she defeated DRUNK MOOSE.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Look no more for SIMON COWELL in the 
arena or on the streets of SUNSET.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  
Inevitable for one at 4-10-1.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable 
with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Mask (all K's, go suck on'em!)

Lord G -- I invite you to open the can, if you can.  Bring da noise, and if
necessary, da funk as well.  Better make sure you can beat the girls on the team,
though, before you take on the big boys! (Dazey says hi) -- Stik and GF

Ol' Blue -- Gods, I hate your type.  And your manager who's so good at spewing them
out.... -- Skydancer

Ronny Reagan -- See?  Not enough jelly beans, man. -- Drane, now sitting rightfully
atop the TP world and soon the whole arena!!

Drunk Moose -- You know, you're kind of dreamy when you're laying in the sand all
bloody and writhing in pain.  A girl could fall for you!  Or if you just want to keep
falling for me, that's fine, too! -- a giggling Dazey

Horns -- I knew it wouldn't be easy.  Well fought. -- Blak Mask

Prime Slime -- Truly slimy of you, well played!  Better keep that head on a swivel,
though, you're surrounded! -- Blevins

Happy Holidays to all managers of Sunset, Jewel of the Delarquan Federation!  Free
spiked eggnog at the Broken Bone this weekend for all! -- Santa Stik and Grim
Fandango

Duelmaster Minos -- Congrats on the throne, and your recent TV, I believe? -- Stik

Grimy Fangs & little Black Pridelings -- Bring it on boys!!  Give it your best shot!!
-- Kano Clan

Ultraist -- How about you let us all know why we should care in the least who you
are, pal??  Just so we can get a real good laugh out of it. -- The Clan

Drane -- You barely bored me, even without me setting up to fight you.  Hilarious
that you are still rated below me!  Try again later. -- Ronald Reagan

Toad Licker -- Like I would!  The very idea grosses me out, and that's even before I
saw all the warts on your tongue. -- Lugo Beloski

Ashandar -- I didn't know the age of Empire was an issue.  He's, what, probably about
eleven now, yes?  Of course, once WE get going, no Empire will live to grow old.
Ducks shall rule! -- Duckbert

Kneads Flesh -- In which case you shouldn't be coming after me, my boy.  I am, after
all, a golem.  I don't think I really count as flesh. -- John Darling

FIREWOOD, you creep! -- Ace

Power Thruster -- My... (admiring look), you ARE a big one, aren't you? -- Djininski

Suigeneris -- Yes, we are indeed all superb teachers here.  It's in the basic
contract warriors sign on joining our team.  A bit tedious, at times, I admit--some
warriors simply canNOT learn to teach.  But we do our best. -- Nick, Sword Opera

Stik -- Thanks for the welcome back! -- Lord G.

Blevins -- Yeah, what Drane said! -- Prime Slime

Dazey -- I know!  I stink (of beer)!  I didn't mean to insult you before our fight,
but you didn't have to cut my groin.  You gave me a moose knuckle.  Now I have to
grow my hair long and wear six inch huffs. -- Drunk Moose Knuckle

Battle Royal 4
     The Battle Royal arena contests are one of the purest tests of manager skill
available. The rules are simple.  The scoring is simple.  The updates are live.  If
you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.
