                             Notes from the arena champ.

Friends, enemies, friends of enemies, here I am, Hart Crane, Duelmaster of Sunset.
First I must thank Assur and Volleyball.  If not for your repeated challenges and
repeated humiliations, I would never be where I am right now.  I'm forever in your
debt.  Looking forward to meeting again on the sands in the near future.  Oh, sorry,
I forgot, you're leaving.  Well, if you ever manage to surgically remove that tail
from between your legs, come on back.  I'm sure we're all breathless with
anticipation.

It's lonely at the top in Sunset.  Literally.  There's no one else up here.  I have
the choice of either challenging Mushiko Bo...or not challenging Mushiko Bo.  In
which case I'll match up with him randomly anyway.  What options!  What variety!
What a dead arena.  It looks like there's a whole battalion cowering beneath the
Champions line, just out of reach.  After sleepless nights and much consideration,
I've made the difficult decision of challenging Mushiko Bo.  Now let's watch him
forget his skivvies and not bother to show.

Hart Crane

                                      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 LAKOTA, whose 0-5-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 16th.  
LIGHT BRIGADE stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 5 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  The GRIM FANDANGO 
guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, GLEEK fought SUNSHINE and gained 
27 points and contributed to SONS OF SATAN's 2-3-0.  SUNSHINE has lost to GLEEK, 
falling 22 points, while helping make LAKOTA a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone 
the Duelmaster have failed, and HART CRANE 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 NOMADIC 
TRIBE stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SUNSET, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding NOMADIC TRIBE more than any other team we find METAL 
MARVELS.  SUNSET, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, 
sports fans, take notice that AZRAEL from SONS OF SATAN was SUNSET's most challenged 
warrior this turn.  In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), 
SONJA challenged DR. DREAM today, facing a 32 difference in recognition.  And though 
SONJA lost to DR. DREAM, the valiant attempt earned her 1 worth of recognition.  
Foolhardiness can sometimes pay.  In a brave attempt, CROUCHING HAMSTER from D.R.I. 
challenged up 22 points to fight FLAMING FLAMINGO from the DOC LEGRAND'S AVIANS 
stable.  CROUCHING HAMSTER perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was subdued by 
FLAMING FLAMINGO and ended up with 64 recognition points.  BOREALIS of GRIM FANDANGO 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge which he 
won.  I thought BOREALIS showed great skill and promise when he bested ROOSTER FISH.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill declares a free round for ELITE GUARD and 
all of LIGHT BRIGADE, for having revenged SONS OF SATAN's ZAN for killing one of 
their comrades.  Kudos go out to VINCENT this turn, for revenging METAL MARVELS' 
bloodfeud against D.R.I.'s warrior DRIVE BY SAMURI.  Well done.  Is it really true 
that SUNSET has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in SUNSET, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in SUNSET again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Stik -- You speak the truth.  Shall we dance? -- Ikillu

Sir Steele -- I had a body guard who was inside the deli stuffing his face the only
moment he was needed, I was not alone so I didn't run so I acted out of instinct.  I
wish I did have something to scare him away. -- Ikillu

Stik -- Nice to see Bonedust out of here.  He was a thorn in my scum's side for too
long. -- Var

Phillipa -- The defeat at your hands has sealed my fate to the DA.  Over, gone done,
out. -- Shaka Connie

Doily -- Your name sickens me about as much as that loss did. -- Genghis Tron

Vengeful Vulture -- Always bet on the hamster over the vulture. -- The Crouching One

Shaman -- Even with your modified strategy I am still the superior scum. -- Violent
Pacification doing the happy fat guy dance.  The dance kind of looks like the truffle
shuffle.

Broken Ring of Stars, Big Lake Express, and Firestorm -- Welcome to Sunset!  First
round's on us tonight at the Broken Bone! -- Grim Fandango

Sherman -- Don't know what face-sucking you're referring to.  As a matter of arena
pride, I take it upon myself to congratulate any new Duelmaster, tourney victor, or
graduating warrior.  Hell, look, one of your warriors finally made it to the throne,
congrats!  If/when you get one graduated, I'll wish them well, too, if they continue
on in ADM because I want Sunset to do well and carry a good rep.  Assur is a fine
veteran Delarq manager who is well respected across Alastari, and I'd like him to
show up and run in Sunset more often, thus I don't just throw degrading insults at
him for no real good reason.  That said, just cause I'm friendly to most managers
here doesn't mean I'm not still trying to challenge their guys in any direction I see
fit to get a win and take their heads off if possible. -- Stik

Sir Steel -- No alliances for this manager, been a lone wolf since the beginning! --
Stik

Damion -- Good to see you back! -- Stik

Stik -- Me, 'making friends'?  I think I might've had a friend once.  If I remember
right, he barked too much, so I had to have him put down. -- Sherman, mgr. Literate
Loons

Bulgakov -- I keep thinking that a matchup with you should be in my favor.  It should
be!  But obviously, it isn't.  I want to say "I'll get you next time!"  But, at this
point, I think I'm willing to simply avoid next time.  I'd compliment you on a good
fight, but apparently your manager has some messed up sense of machismo.  Maybe you
did just get lucky. -- Nerve Raker

V.P. -- Ok, I give up.  You can simply last longer than I can.  Feel free to assume I
will be avoiding you from here on out.  At least the losses don't result in many
wounds.... -- Shaman, the warrior

Mushiku Bo -- I didn't see that one coming.  Nor did I have long to see it! -- Tiger

Artose -- When I first saw you walk into the arena I thought I might have drawn a bad
matchup.  Guess not.  Endurance. It is nice to have a little. -- Ziggy

Sir Steel -- Pulling a firearm on the General will only make him smile. -- Crambus,
Firestorm

All -- What are the chances of getting a manager and team list here? -- Crambus

     Here's what I have.  This is teams listed in last turn's newsletter.  If I've
     gotten anyone's name wrong, just let me know and I'll fix it. -- The Saint,
     keeper of lists
