                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello, Sunset!

Another turn, a few more skills, and no invite to AD so all is well.  Doc says we are
pushing our luck, but he wants to push it to be ready for the F2F.  I didn't see any
personal ads requesting a shot at the title, so I threw out a couple of random
challenges.  I thank Blackest Pride for their note of congratulations.  Time is
short, so that is all I have to say this week.

Ashandar, Legion4

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in SUNSET this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for SPORTS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 13th.  
EQUITES VIRTUS stable has parlayed this turn's 2-3-0 into a 7 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 10th place.  Good work, guys!  On their very first 
turn, D.R.I. had a 5-0-1, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  
Welcome to SUNSET.  AEMILIA has lost to SCYTHE, falling 16 points, while helping make 
EQUITES VIRTUS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, 
and ASHANDAR remains SUNSET's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Baba 
Yaga's Bar and Grill until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the SONS OF 
SATAN stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SUNSET, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding SONS OF SATAN more than any other team we find MAGIC CITY 
MAFIA.  SUNSET, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was SWORD OPERA's warrior DJININSKI.  More fighters 
challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, ARTURIUS from 
EQUITES VIRTUS challenged up 22 points to fight SLITHER from the GRIM FANDANGO 
stable.  ARTURIUS perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he defeated SLITHER and 
ended up with 24 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  THE NATURALS XI has lost HOLLYWOOD to the arena in the sky, but they don't 
seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 5-7-2?  Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill 
declares a free round for BONEDUST and all of GRIM FANDANGO, for having revenged 
MAGIC CITY MAFIA's VESTAVIA HILLS for killing one of their comrades.  A brave warrior 
does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     I like this place, SUNSET, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Remedial warrior training in Jhans huh?  Strong words from an anonymous boast...
err...poster! -- Polarius (who signs his name to his ads!)

Magic City Mafia -- Nice challenge with Vestavia, that was my best warrior on the
squad right now.  Luckily there's a dead tourney right around the corner!  I do hope
you'll give the rest of my puds a chance to bloodfeud. -- Stik and Grim Fandango

Equites Virtus and Ill City Pimps -- Welcome to Sunset!  Do stay a while and soak up
the blood loss--er, atmosphere! -- Stik and GF

Rajerek -- Well, damn.  (heavy sigh)  A man works, and works hard, mind you, to
develop as a dancer, becomes a leading ballerino, and what happens?  Some young
hotshot comes along and makes him look old.  It's worst when it happens as he's
actually getting old, because then he can't laugh it off at all. -- Djininski
P.S.  Hmm, maybe I should train stats.  No way I'm going to come out of here with
long-term potential, and at least I do have stubbornness on my side.  Maybe I should
train CN.  Maybe I WILL train CN, and not even wait for Nick to okay it!  Yeah,
that's what I'll do.

Volleyball -- That's an offensive game.  Jumping and grunting and SWEATING, and out
in PUBLIC, too!  I was so grossed out, I couldn't fight you. -- Ace, maker of bad
excuses

Burm N'Hamm -- Oh, go eat a TURKEY, you mammal! -- Duckbert

Arturius -- My DEAR boy!  Was I supposed to be AMUSED?  You were rude, forward, and
to be quite frank about it, crude.  I could not possibly tolerate such behavior,
pussycat. -- Diva Nashona

Ashandar -- You have succeeded in silencing Ace!  Amazing.  On the one hand, he is

all puffed up to be considered "a fantastic teacher," but on the other hand, really
annoyed to be considered "an easy win."  Confuse him some more!  We all enjoy it so
here at the Opera House. -- Madam Butterfly

                             HAMMER ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

     Be it known from the highest mountains to the darkest alleys of Alastari that
the veteran manager known far and wide as Hammer has now officially retired from
sponsoring contests as of September 15, 2005.
     What a long time ago was a fun motivated activity to help promote our common
DM/D2 gaming interest in an effort to promote the growth and competitiveness of
selected arenas has become a far from fun experience.
     In other words Hammer has had it!
     The combination of real life situations interfering with the time needed to
effectively sponsor a contest, plus the attitudes expressed during such sponsorship
interference has led to Hammer closing his personal coin coffers and retiring from
his planned sponsorship of any future contests.
     There are others in our close knit gaming community who are well able to step up
to the plate and continue sponsoring contests that make the basic game a fun
experience for all those who choose to compete and interact in such future endeavors.
     Hammer thanks all managers both active and inactive who helped to make the
Hammer sponsored contests a historical and entertaining experience well worth the
time, effort and money spent over the past several years.
     May the Cheers and the Jeers of future contests build upon the legacies of those
who have paved the way in years gone by to help make this game what it is today.
     Hammer has no regrets for the part he has played in that history.

19 September 2005
I'd like to say hello to everyone I know that is still around after my being gone for
five years.  Hope to see you all on the sands, and may your weapons strike true and
your shields protect you (except, of course, against MY warriors *grin*)!! -- Lord
Xiang, D2-101

5 October 2005
To those once of Willaf -- It's time to come back to the sands.  I'm back,
exclusively at Willaf.... -- Kurd the Vivisectionist, Your Better

12 October 2005
Magic Man -- You are a fellow Canadian, are you not?  Where do you hail from?  I live
in Kelowna, B.C. -- Maximillian, 8,13, 28, 47, 54
