                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail Sunset!  It's my great honor to sit this throne once before moving on.  And
it's my great pleasure to move on rather than be carried out.  Bill gave me a few
dirty looks that had me worried from time to time, but here I am.
     All in all, not bad to be me now.  I met my girlfriend during my frequent trips
to the infirmary.  I'll have a lot more free time, but a lot less excuse to hang
around.  Mixed blessing there, I suppose...
     On my way out I'm challenging Poca.  I don't know much about that guy, but Mr
(or Ms) Wildcard gets the DM's challenge.  Normally I would try taking out Darkness
to set up Ophelia, but she's apparently pretty agitated about being ranked below
Darkness in spite of beating her.  You would not believe how she went on.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SUNSET will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as NOMADIC TRIBE is pushed out of top team by BEN'S BAZAAR, who came from 2nd with a 
4-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for SWORD OPERA, whose 0-5-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 16th.  DARK AT 
HEART stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 6 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  The BEN & JERRY'S guild has had 
a 3-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And not without some honor, WILD now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of SUNSET.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at Wildlife Unlimited?   
     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 KANO CLAN 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SUNSET, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided KANO CLAN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BEN'S 
BAZAAR.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that THE FOILER from BEN'S 
BAZAAR was SUNSET's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, HOPE 
SPRINGS from THE RED BLADES challenged up 21 points to fight TIME from the OMINOUS 
REIGN stable.  HOPE SPRINGS perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she defeated 
TIME and ended up with 103 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  HOLY MOLY was sent 
to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  MACHIDE SHOU has 
departed SUNSET, leaving KANO CLAN without their 6-5-0 warrior.  Question, just what 
was his team doing at the taverns last night?  Wildlife Unlimited declares a free 
round for LEVEL OF MALEVOLENCE and all of DEVIATION, for having revenged GOLGOTHA'S 
BLOOMS' SAM BYCK for killing one of their comrades.  Congratulations go out to THE 
RED BLADES, with BRUNO SQUALL revenging a bloodfeud against CHOCOLATE THERAPY of BEN 
& JERRY'S.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in SUNSET again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

If anybody challenges any of my warriors with their warrior, I'm gonna kill it. --
Ikillu

Blakskul -- You got heart, a lot of it.  Too bad it squirted out all over me. -- Poca

Barbaric Smurf -- Thanks for the skills.  Be seeing you again soon.  X/O -- Edulfo
Papa

It is amazing how much WHAT you learn determines wins and losses. -- Bloodsong

Stik -- Thanks for the welcome...and, likewise on the crossing of blades. -- The
Cajun

Gentleben -- I appreciate the warm welcome from you as well. -- The Cajun

Ninja Barbie -- Agreed. -- Hardy

All beggars -- I spit on you! -- Shog

Idaria -- That'll teach you to challenge me to a staring contest!  However, I must
modestly admit, I haven't trained to be and was not meant to be so terribly boring!
-- Hardy

Daggermouth -- That's a nice Shewish limp you've got there now. -- Bix

Hroloc -- You can be sure to expect better from me, if indeed we meet again. --
Reduvius

Kano -- "Mr. smarty pants?"  Seriously?  How old are you?  As for the Aimer, he might
not be bright, but he defeated you.  And no, I don't make warriors with you in mind.
The numbers just happened to say "aimed blow."  And so I made an AB.  Beat him if you
can. -- Nomad

Grim Fandango -- Well, since Lupus managed to kill Warsaw I feel as though I should
taunt you for being a wimp, loser, small-minded and all around pathetic!  Hah!  And,
Lupus shall now run like a coward and hide for at least 4 turns!  Perhaps if you had
put some armor on him!  Stupid!

Oh, wait.  He was wearing armor, wasn't he?  And Lupus won't be hiding like a coward.
I wonder if being "Kano-ish" is infectious?  I can think of diseases I'd rather have.
As for Warsaw, as you know, it was unintentional.  Sometimes the life, and death, of
a gladiator does not go as planned.  (Or maybe he needed MORE armor?) -- Nomad

I am out of here!  You'll have to find a new goblincatcher! -- Lord Protector Bul
Goblinhewer, retired.

Bitter Dove -- I guess I can see why you might be a touch on the bitter side,losing
like that. -- Hroloc

Karamel -- I keep asking for more than two avoids, but the commission never responds.
I really could use them. -- Walli

Congrats to the many graduates from Sunset and especially to Deviation for getting 2
out on the same turn. -- Blood and Sand

All -- With aimed blows being the most popular style, it is no wonder TPs are doing
poorly here.  At least strikers are not the fav style like in too many arenas. --
Batiatus

High hopes that Sunset represented at the tourney and spilled fair share of blood. --
Batiatus

The Blues -- Since The Hunter has decided to kill and then hide, Blood and Sand will
not get right of Bloodfeud.  Remove tail from betwixt legs and face destiny. --
Batiatus

Wow, we're a Team on the Move in an upward direction!  This is... unexpected. --
Jorja

Sam Byck -- Ah, sorry, I can't go there.  Had a problem with my nose, well, it was
broken more than once, and I don't smell things well. -- Trelaine

Walli -- It must be my expertise in singing lullabies. -- Elise Isla

Yodle Layhe Who -- Ah, managers.  Troublemakers, every one. -- Jonisson

Barbaric Smurf -- It all depends on what you fancy doing, doesn't it?  We might be
able to use you in our next opera.  Just a bit part at first, you understand, just to
see if you're proper operatic material, but it could lead to greater things. --
Kallia May

Our congratulations to Yuedebahl Litha. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera cast

Spartacus -- That was not NICE.  There was no need AT ALL for brutality. -- Elise
Isla

Seliora -- I didn't mean to actually "demolish" you, which was reportorial hyperbole
anyway.  But you were such a tasty little thing, I could hardly help myself. --
Trelaine

Hroloc the Hun -- Vicious, huh.  Figures. -- Bitter Dove

Boneface -- You could try wearing a mask.  It might confuse people. -- Jonisson

Bloodsong -- You were flat.  You started out flat and couldn't seem to get onto the
right track at all.  That really annoys me.  Take voice lessons, or else get a non-
singing part. -- Kallia May

Darkness -- That was an exciting fight, even more so than before.  The fans got their
money's worth.  And one of us got nice skills again.  By the way, if my challenge got
through this turn it isn't anything personal.  I'm a bit miffed about the rankings.
-- Ophelia

Gladiatorial Commission -- I suspect you are actually just one person.  And you
clearly weren't even present for the duels last cycle.  Or maybe you were just late
and missed the fights of the top arena warriors.  Or maybe you just hadn't sobered up
by then.  I could almost see ranking the 2-5 WS below the 4-7 WS he just defeated,
for instance, but you screwed up last turn. -- Ophelia Delphi

Baboons -- I apologize for the unflattering comparison I scrubbed out of the previous
note.  You would have been pretty offended.  Again, I apologize. -- Ophelia

Praechyon -- You're no Punksure, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.  For you
anyway. -- Rocksie Rhodes

Batwamba -- And that is exactly why I was avoiding you. -- Bruno

Ruin -- Nice fight.  You and Darkness should be getting the call soon.  Good luck to
you. -- Yuedebahl

Time -- Okay, I'll admit there was a teency weency bit of luck involved in the first
fight.  Nice job, Time.  I'll have to work on the ol' strat. -- Hope Springs

Congrats from The Red Blades to all of the recent graduates!  You brought honor to
Sunset.

Yue Da Man Litha -- Congrats on both your accomplishments. -- Ben's Bazaar

Nomad -- I had really hoped to have the current top team last turn since I will
probably never get the career top team unless I was alone in the arena and well I do
enough fighting with myself as it is. -- Gentleben

Wild -- That was some party.  This one went to you. -- Yodle layhe Who

Dred -- I bet you hate getting up in the morning, don't you?  I hear they do have
night fights maybe you could try one of those. -- Speedo Smurf

Edulfo Papa -- Whose your papa now. -- Barbaric Smurf

Minami Tori -- I assume that you will be avoiding from here on out so best of luck
avoiding for I will be challenging when and if you ever rise above me in the ranks.
-- Ninja Barbie

Bartt -- I was so named for a reason even though the record doesn't tell the story.
-- The Foiler

To all those that fought in the tourney -- I hope you did well unless you fought my
team from 47. -- Gentleben

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
