                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Another turn for Time.  Was a good fight vs Sparticus and I'm sure next time he
will reign here soon enough.  As for me I believe its Hals time.  I'm sure if Hal had
the time he would want to be DM. -- Time

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SUNSET brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, KANO CLAN, since RAGING 
LORDS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, 
GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 9 in 
the rankings?  THE RED BLADES turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 9th place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's 
all watch CAJUN APOCALYPSE's heads swell from their 4-1-2 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  
Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
CLUSTERFLUFF win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BIX beat ACHERON 
and ACHERON lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, SUNSET may be getting bland, as TIME stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in 
a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, SUNSET?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  SUNSET, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
NOMADIC TRIBE the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like KANO CLAN avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, MOSHI HARU was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can 
give a little credit to WHIRLED PEACE of BEN & JERRY'S for challenging up by 25 to 
MOSHI HARU.  WHIRLED PEACE lost to get 66 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SUNSET's 
morgue.  More variety.  Gee, GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS, ain't it past due for sending 
BLOODSONG Dark Arena?  What took ol' '9-10-1' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  I could 
say I saw this coming, but so could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  THE 
MAGIC SHROOM's 7-6-2 has earned it the Dark Arena.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  
YODLE LAYHE WHO, a glorious 12-17-1 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad BEN'S 
BAZAAR.  Ya gotta go sometime, and NINJA BARBIE's time was this time.  Hmmm, not a 
bad fighter, had she lived... (what?  me pity?).  And what a stunning loss we have 
here, boys and girls, LIKE WATER of GRIM FANDANGO has added the final loss to his 
9-11-1.  Tee hee!  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was HALO of GRIM FANDANGO this 
turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have a belly laugh.  Heh heh.  
Seriously now, is it really honorable for TROWSUL THUNDER from RAGING LORDS to kill 
YODLE LAYHE WHO and give BEN'S BAZAAR the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  It's 
about time LUPUS MAJOR got beat for picking on warriors like CHESTERTON.  Bravo, 
LITERATE LOONS.  See you at Cagliostro's Castle.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it 
only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this 
one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of SUNSET.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Metaru Hei -- It looked like you were going down several times during that fight and
I thought I had you for sure.  Those were some serious Will checks you made! -- Row
Dayo Drive

The Magic Shroom -- Them shrooms must of had something special in them... because
that result boggles my mind! -- Level of Malevolence

Minami Tori -- It looks like you guys set out to fight some Deviates last turn.  Duly
noted... well done. -- Hoosier Daddy

Illoosiv -- Nice matchup for you.  Welcome to the arena.... we'll be seeing each
other again! -- My Sword and Savior

Batwamba -- 'Cause this key, it won't unlock the door. -- Red House

Barca -- Thanks, but I'm immune to Mace. -- Slowhand

Rocksie Rhodes -- Maybe you should have sent Randy Rhoads? -- Red House

Kano -- Okay... let's break down your latest PAs.  First off, "insignificance" is in
the eyes of the beholder, buddy.  Not only are Nomad's losses fewer than yours, his
wins outnumber his losses by over one hundred, which is the opposite
for you, my friend.
     Your ideas on armor and whether or not to wear it reflects your record, by the
way, not your "experiments."
     If you didn't care about these people OR what they say, why the unending rants?
Crystal Clear?!  I've had better vision looking into muddy waters.
     Am I impressed with your past two turns?  Sure.  Do I think you could be a
respectable manager?  Maybe.  Do I think you waste too much time on matters that
supposedly do not concern you?  Definitely!  Do you know me?  If not, you will! -- 
Khorvinus

CONGRATULATIONS! to Cajun Apocalypse (602), Ominous Reign (584), Puddle of Blood
(500), and Tool Shed (592), for the smack down of Nomadic Tribe warrior-wimps.  Good
work, guys!  Here's to hoping you can keep it up against the Tribe.

Louis -- You should have had me in that fight.  Perhaps a change in fighting rhythm
would be beneficial? -- Morikawa Take

Row Dayo Drive -- You had me going at the start and towards the end, but an endurance
contest against me was your undoing. -- Metaru Hei

Hoosier Daddy -- A commendable effort indeed, and regret giving you the skills. --
Minami Tori

Punksure -- Talk to your manager about allowing you to wear some armor protection.
So typical of the over-confident jerk to down-challenge, but to an obviously better
fighter than you.  Very lucky you didn't get killed. -- Musubu Kin

Blakskul -- How in the world did you get a winning record by using the wrong fighting
strategy and such limited armor protection?  Maybe you're not cut out for this arena
combat thing.  Perhaps your manager chose the wrong fighting style for you? -- Moshi
Haru

Well, there were 14 Lungers that fought and still didn't do any better than 7-7.
Perhaps there are some managers not competent with running Lungers?  Maybe not, I
dunno, but the the cherished ABs finally got back on the winning side.  And look at
the PLs getting a 5-1 result.  That's unusual for PLs which are normally nothing more
than a smarter Lunger.  I love this arena!  The competition here is much better than
many arenas.

You guys ever notice how the top 5 or 6 teams like to boast about their greatness,
and then down-challenge in the hope of easy wins or challenge the bottom 5 or 6 teams
in the hope of easy wins?  What does that tell you about their greatness?  Sounds
like your typical Skum to me.  Seems as though they should be fighting among
themselves for the right to lead.  Think about it (or perhaps thinking is too much to
ask for some of you).

A question was raised concerning one's amount of participation here in Sunset.
Seriously?  It's nobody's filthy stinking business how often or how many warriors you
run in any given turn.  Run just one or two, disappear for two turns, return and run
four if you like, or virtually any combination you well please.  Don't break your arm
patting yourself on the back, Stik, about how you run every turn with a full squad.
Goody two-shoes for you, pal.  Nice try.  Don't care.  Now go sit down and shut up.

Got a repeat news flash for you all.  I have absolutely NO concern what-so-ever about
what you appreciate, or what you like or don't like, or what you assume to know about
me.  In fact, if whatever I'm doing gets you upset, perturbed, or just plain PO'd and
agitated, then I'm elated.  I've been playing you boys like a finely tuned
Stradivarius and you know it.  You dopes (mind you now, not all of you) can't see
past your astronomical arrogance and self-righteousness to notice your own stupidity.

I told you how I would now concentrate my efforts on Sunset.  Is that just too much
for some of you?  Have you really become that ignorant, lazy, and confident here?
Better wake up!  You ignorant slobs at the top of Sunset don't control jack.  Some of
us are aiming right at you and it appears to be working (not saying that will
continue for long either). -- Kano

Have never professed to be an undisputed expert with regards to this game (who is,
after all), but I've had some pretty good luck in the last couple turns.  Now just
watch how the top teams in Sunset will try to down-challenge the Clan and attempt to
explain away their losses using them as the scapegoat instead of blaming their own
stupidity.  Their behavior speaks volumes with respect to their own egomaniacal
indignities.  It's pathetic. -- Kano

Stik -- Parse my words, make assumptions, and be as presumptuous as you will, bub.
You're not even worth my time. -- Kano

ALL -- Quote from the PA's in Turn 664; "Am hoping to get some competent dialogue
initiated here (Sorry, that counts you out, Nomad)." Have absolutely no intention of
explaining myself or discussing anything with someone so stone cold stupid as that
Nomad twit. -- Kano

Jorja -- What are you talking about, man?  Please don't obfuscate.  Never heard of
Shadowspire and don't care. Ever considered Bashing with a hatchet?  Perhaps your
interests in Tricorus would like to hear about such possibilities. -- Kano

Never did get around to saying anything about Popularity Points this turn, so just a
question to ponder: Do you think that the PP's should weigh so heavily with regards
to the outcome of any fight?

So, will this turn be "beastly"?

One Armed Boxer -- Can you sing?  That's the main requirement.  We can get someone
else to do the heavy lifting. -- Elise Isla

Our congratulations to Boneface. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera cast

Like Water -- Ah, but I know the secret to handling water!  Add lots of wine.
Although I must say that you soaked it up with more enthusiasm than I expected. --
Kallia May

Kipling -- You left me feeling like a rag, a bone, and a hank of hair, and I hate it
when that happens. -- Elise Isla

Raging Bull -- I can understand your urgency, but you were supposed to take care of
that BEFORE the fight. -- Trelaine

Wheelbarrow -- Oh, well, I was never one for getting my hands dirty. -- Bitter Dove
P.S.  But it does seem unreasonable that neither of us learned anything useful.  I
was training skills, but gardening... not my line.  What were you up to?

Fergie -- The bigger they are....  Never wear high heels to a fight.  It just makes
it easier for us short people to cut you down.  Very breakable, high heels. -- Celina
Hye

Kano -- So, do wins work as a measuring stick or not?  First you say "no."  Then you
suggest that my recent struggles (and the team certainly has struggled lately) are a
sign of my insignificance.  So, which is it?   If wins and losses count, then I am to
blame for my current losses, but also get credit for my overall record.  If they
don't matter, then why bring it up?  You wanted intelligent discussion--try to be
consistent.  But overall, why continue the personal attacks? -- Nomad

Sledgehead -- How many challenges is that now?  Honestly, find someone else. -- Walli

I Smoked What?!  -- Honestly, I'd like to know.  What exactly did I smoke? --
Batwamba

Youngblood -- I have the sneaky suspicion that I was seriously outclassed in that
one.  A bit of an experience disadvantage at the least.  But the skills were good, at
least. -- Lupus Major

Musubu Kin -- Sadly, armor would not have made a difference in our fight.  I did not
lose because you beat me senseless.  I lost because I became exhausted before I could
finish you off.  Armor might have helped you in that case, but it would only have
made my loss more certain.  Not having armor gave me a chance.  Sadly, it was not
enough of one.  And, it seems, I am just not very good at this and the boss indicated
that my particular experiment is over. -- Grunge

LP Boneface -- Congrats on the invite, do Sunset proud if you should proceed on in
ADM! -- Grim Fandango

Moshi Haru -- Nice challenge on your part, good thing you got yours through and not
the other way around.  We'll see this turn... or the next. -- Blakskul

Kallia May -- Thought I had the goods that time, guess not.  I do appreciate the
decent learns, however. -- L.W.

Kano -- Already know what you're gonna say, man, so might as well save it.
Regardless, I have to congratulate you on a nice 3 turn record, despite all the
mindless blathering.  Don't let it go to your head (although I'm guessing it's too
late for that already...) -- Stik

Ruin -- I was hoping that first scummy crit would have landed... sigh... went about
as well as expected when you started swinging back.  Well done.  The skills were
consolation at least. -- Sugar Magnolia

To all the aimed blows of the arena -- Okay, already!!  I get it... I get it!! -- I
Smoked What?!

DM Time -- Congrats on the throne, always nice to see a  basher at the top. -- Ben's
Bazaar

Kano Clan -- Damn!!!!  All that mouthing off and karma didn't bite you in the ass!
Good show ole' chap! -- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

Chesterton -- You couldn't let me have jus one could you? -- Yodle Layhe Who

One Armed Boxer -- Have you seen a Bandit around?  Wait a minute...!!! -- The Foiler

Hope Springs -- Yeah, that's right, that's how I roll.  I's gots skills.  NINJA
kills! -- Ninja Barbie

Trowsul Thunder -- I think there might be a little lightning in there as well.  Ah
well, Smurf heaven for me. -- Ghost of Barbaric Smurf

LP Boneface -- Well, you come back and then leave just like that, congrats stud. --
Ben's Bazaar
