                             Notes from the arena champ.

It's a pretty sight to have such a studly scum sitting atop this arena!  The larqs hate
to see a warrior like me on top.  It insults their pride.  Can I hold on to it before I
graduate though?  I don't know if Mushiku Bo or Hart Crane have the skills or the
endurance to take me out.  So it looks like I might be sitting here again next turn.
I'm off to the bar to drink some saurkraut whiskey!  

Violent Pacification

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SUNSET!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  NOMADIC TRIBE were a bunch 
of dogs after PESTILENCE got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Hmmmph!  
I always thought GRIM FANDANGO was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 
2-3-0!  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat 
myself.  I ramble.  Well FAMINE moved up 6, to 8th.  What's with MATSUDA KAO?  He 
actually beat LITERATE LOONS' BULGAKOV, and walked away with 19 more points from the 
fight.  SHAMAN was reminded on the sands why VIOLENT PACIFICATION is Duelmaster.  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, NOMADIC TRIBE!  In my day, no team with a 63-43-0 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, GRIM FANDANGO?  What do people see in MUSHIKU BO?  His 18-21-0?  
KANO CLAN ain't talkin', but he's got 87 points.  BLESSED BLUEJAY didn't quite know 
what to make of a challenge she received from GRAVEYARD TAN of GRIM FANDANGO, who is 
18 points below her.  GRAVEYARD TAN perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
defeated BLESSED BLUEJAY and ended up with 66 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A 
warrior can't stick around with a 4-8-0, and THANATOS easily took care of SKIRMISHER. 
VULGE was plum wore out after SHERWOOD pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  GRIM 
FANDANGO'll have to get a little better before going after SHERWOOD again!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

For it is told that when The Lord Of Famine appears, death spreads throughout the
land.  Sunshine of Lakota, be thee dead, for The Lord Of Famine hath struck. --
Apocalypse

Vulge -- So, you finally managed to knock old Conrad's head off [12(2)-13(1)-11-
11(2)-21(1)-11(1)-13(2)].  Congratulations, it only took you a 20 point down-
challenge to kill a less experienced, 9 wit PR.  Your two daddies must be so proud.
-- Sherman

Nomad -- Points well taken, a bit more genteel than I'm use to, but well stated. --
Sherman

Violent Pacification -- I still don't understand where the violence of your namesake
comes into play, but 8 minutes without a weapon (or shield in your case), that's some
major-league crash-test-dummy damage taking. -- Bulgakov

Shaman -- You bastard!!  Why couldn't you just quit.  How many times do I have to hit
you? -- Crouching Hamster

Conrad -- Who's the guppy bait now? -- Genghis Tron

Samael -- Looks like Death needs some new disciples. -- Socrates of Shred

Sherman -- Apology accepted--and hopefully I did not sound self righteous myself.
Now we can simply return to attempting to smash the other guy's warriors. -- Nomad

Bluejay -- Nice try.  It was an interesting match-up. -- Raker

Scout -- A daring challenge, young one.  I'm still here if you need another lesson. 
-- Dream

Hamster -- I have been trying for that match-up for a while.  It was closer than I
had hoped for, but if I can't beat one D.R.I. warrior, perhaps I can get another?
That felt good. -- Shaman, the warrior

Brood -- Ouch, ouch, ouch.  I don't think I like this whole losing thing. -- Ziggy

Light Brigade -- How far do you have to fall before you are no longer overrunning the
arena?  A 54% win-percentage is nice, but it hardly qualifies as overrunning much.
Send more challenges like Scouts and we'll continue your downward trend. -- Nomadic
Tribe

Stik, Nomad -- That was me a couple turns back.  I did forget to sign.  Last week was
missed due to a computer failure. -- Woody

Stik -- Skirmisher was my best prospect out of this team.  Footman (Foorman) was the
worst...by far.  Go figure. -- Woody

Zan -- Well fought, I underestimated you.  Cannon Fodder is still healing from that
one. -- Woody

Dr. Dream -- Excellent instruction, the Light Brigade thanks you. -- Woody

Bad Handwriting -- I'm flattered to warrant a priority challenge. -- Elite Guard

All -- YES!  Now that's the type of competition I was looking for when I came to
Sunset.  Let the blood flow! -- Woody, Mgr. Light Brigade

Sherman -- Apology accepted, probably no need really for my windbag response (and it
got edited, too!), but there it is.  Blades up... -- Stik

Ultraist --Welcome home.  Too long without one of our cornerstone stables!  I hope
that one fight isn't just tourney timing! -- Stik

Chaos and Famine -- Welcome to Sunset!  I hope your names are just metaphorical, hard
to get much dueling done when everyone's starving and fighting in the streets!  First
round's on us at our establishment of choice, the Broken Bone Tavern, post fights
tonight! -- Grim Fandango

Matsuda Kao -- (gesticulating irritatedly with bandaged hands)  Looks like a couple
lucky "breaks" went your way that time, lucky for YOU anyways!! -- Bravos

Literate Loons -- A death for a death, and our fallen teammate is avenged in full at
last.  Who wants some more? -- Vulge

Foorman -- Nice challenge, and a rather disappointing showing on my part, the Old Man
was not happy.  I'm sure we'll see you again, though. -- G.T.

Skirmisher -- Please. -- Borealis

     HDFA Mission Statement
     "Show me the money!"
     This is the battle cry of a newly formed collection of like-minded individuals:
The High Dolla' Free Agent$.  We are not a tough guy alliance:  No...we offer no
battle without reward.  We search for victory and the prizes and accolades that
follow.  We are motivated by winning and will freely use whatever means necessary to
obtain our currency.  No stuffy rules, no mandates, no constitutions, no leaders,
only a few objectives:
     1) Win as often as possible
     2) Celebrate freely and revel in your victories; the more meaningless the
victory the more we celebrate.  Highsiding and chest thumping are encouraged.
Ostentatious endzone celebrations with prop usage are encouraged, regardless of
fines, penalties, suspensions or arrest by local authorities.  It is important to let
your opponent know how great you are; more importantly, you must let your own
alliance mates know how great you are.
     This is a 1-up alliance, let the performance of your fellow Free Agent$ motivate
you.  If a Free Agent wins a TV, win 2; if a Free agent wins a contest, win a more
prestigious one.
     Current members of the HDFA include:  CFH and Abraxis.  Inquires can be directed
to:  CFH/Rat Salad DM 47
