                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sunset, it is I, Speedo Smurf, the blue legend in white speedos, your duelmaster
and top dog this week.  I am here to regale you with my presence and my charm <a sly
wink to the ladies>.
     I have battled it out on the sands many times here in Sunset.  For the most part
I have been victorious.  I am giving the top guy the first shot, good luck, Blakskul,
you're going to need it.  It has been a while since Gentleben has had a duelmaster
ANYWHERE and here in Sunset the only Duelmasters he has had have been Smurfs... makes
you wonder why he doesn't hire more of us, and I use the word HIRE loosely, more like
slavery!  Either way it is I that had to go out onto the sands every other week.  It
was I that swung the sword or dagger, not him.  It is I that dodged another's blows,
not him.  It is I that did all this with NO ARMOR <another wink to the ladies> while
Gentleben sits up in the STANDS not SANDS with a PEN not a SWORD, I never did believe
that the sword was ever nor will ever be mightier than the sword, all the while
wearing his expensive robes that OUR sweat and blood have earned him while I sport
these tight fitting custom made baby seal leather speedos <another yet slower wink
accompied by a nod to the ladies>.  That's right, Mr. Kano, I must be an idiot not to
wear armor, <shaking and quivering> guess I can blame my record on that... wait... I
am 13-5 going into this week's fights, so screw you <hahaha> <another wink to the
ladies>.  Well, I guess I need to go get ready for my fight this week, I have enjoyed
the attention <several winks and finger pointing at several SPECIFIC ladies
accompined by a develish grin and hehe>, good luck to all in the fights and I hope to
be sitting a top the throne once again the next time you see me, either way I will be
seeing YOU latter <wink, nod and pointing at ALL the ladies>.

SMURF OUT!
Speedo Smurf

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SUNSET.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
RAGING LORDS was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Some people say 
I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 
OMINOUS REIGN moved up 7, to 2nd.  What's with BATWAMBA?  He actually beat BEN & 
JERRY'S' DUBLIN MUDSLIDE, and walked away with 28 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at NOMADIC TRIBE while they watched BATWAMBA clobber DUBLIN MUDSLIDE.  It 
lost 24 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged GRIM FANDANGO's BLAKSKUL?  That sort of initiative is how he 
got where he is now.  Try as he might, BLAKSKUL wasn't good enough at persuading 
SPEEDO SMURF to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  SUNSET thinks KANO CLAN 
and their 336-415-22 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The 
bums at NOMADIC TRIBE couldn't face the challenges from KANO CLAN!  No excuse for 
that!  What do people see in BITTER DOVE?  His 4-12-0?  SWORD OPERA ain't talkin', 
but he's got 24 points.  TISTHESEASON2BLETHAL didn't quite know what to make of a 
challenge he received from HARDY of CAJUN APOCALYPSE, who is 23 points below him.  
HARDY perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was bested by TISTHESEASON2BLETHAL 
and ended up with 30 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Death is no stranger to a warrior.  BEN & JERRY'S' 
CHUNKY MONKEY led a good life before leaving SUNSET.  Many would be proud to leave 
behind a 9-6-2.  XIAN LIN was plum wore out after WALLI WEEBLE pounded 'im silly in a 
Bloodfeud.  KANO CLAN'll have to get a little better before going after WALLI WEEBLE 
again!  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so 
young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  SUNSET is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Sunset -- It's good to finally be back in one of the most competetive arenas in
Alastari!  Good luck, pimps! -- bubbaganoosh, mgr. 420 b.c.

Whirled Peace -- Good match up.  Probably not our last, either. -- silver haze

Milina -- Nice.  A match up between a couple of killers... and no death intent!  Too
bad. -- nannerpuss

Hoosier Daddy -- That was ugly, but you've got quite an FE edge on me.  Stay away! --
knuckles

Hope Springs -- At least you taught me a couple of sweet skills.  Get up on out of
here already, though.  Good grief. -- panama red

Xian Lin -- Nice win and kill.  Padoka was a solid roll-up, but not great.  Based on
your team's past behavior, I assume we will not see you fighting for at least the
next 4 turns.  No doubt your manager will brag about the kill, but scream when others
note his cowardice.  We will see you on the sands... eventually. -- Nomad and the
Tribe

Despair -- I need more avoids, it is as simple as that. -- Walli

Slowhand -- That is the sort of fight I am built for.  But those skills you taught
aren't likely to do me much good. -- Lupus Major

Bruno Squall -- All I need is the right matchup.  You would be the right matchup.
And the boss wanted me to add that he thinks you have a cool name for a warrior. --
Batwamba

Mundane -- I think I need to thank you for that particular weapon selection.
Anything else and I would have had problems. -- Kadoka

Celina Hye -- Good fight, maybe another try.  Back away, Hal! -- Inspire

Kadoka -- Um, I bet that was a good fight, I think. -- Mundane

Gangol -- I applaud your offensive effort but it doesn't seem to go hand-in-hand with
your fight style.  Thanks for the skills! -- Minami Tori

Pietros -- I commend your valient stance though perhaps you are not as adept with
that toothpick as you might think. -- Musubu Kin

Kadoka -- Sorry about your teammate, Padoka, but simply standing idle while I made
her a pin cushion for my spear was not an effective strategy. -- Xian Lin

Helrazor -- I'm only slapping myself for having allowed you the victory after I had
you in desperation.  I had you!  Now that I know what to do to defeat you, looking
forward to the rematch. -- Moshi Haru

Tistheseason -- Good for you; for once again demonstrating how your style can fare
against mine.  Watch out for all those lungers lurking around, just looking for a
target like you not wearing any armor protection. -- Metaru Hei

Jorja -- What do you mean by saying "No" to me.  Fortunately you don't know.  Are you
one of the game designers?  "The more experienced warrior is not going to win on
nothing but that experience over a higher-ranked warrior who has fewer (visible)
fights."  You just admitted and went on further to admit that Points do have a
dramatic effect on our fight results.  Why else would there be repeated references to
the large difference in Points between warriors in places like Duel Newsletters?  And
no, it doesn't have anything to do with a "GOOD" warrior.  You might have a moron
with a 1-10 record and 50 Points against a star warrior with a 6-5 record and 30
Points. The dope with 50 Points has a tremendous advantage to win because of the 20-
Point superiority. What is there not to understand about all this? -- Kano

All -- Couldn't help except have a good time ROTFLMBO! reading the little juvenile
tirade by that Stik character.  Wow!  What a total buffoon.  I'm just tickled to hear
he gives up.  That's wonderful news.  Apparently he really is too dumb to realize
we've got him right where he needs to be.  If he wants to devote his team effort on
targeting the Clan, then bring it on.  Would simply be a reflection of his own
ignorance, lack of character and self-control.  LOL!  I'm thoroughly convinced he
requires professional assistance for his mental impairment.  Anyone willing to
assist?

There goes that Nomad-freak blowing it all out of his backside again.  Hey!  If he
refuses to look over the evidence contained in his own fight results, then that's his
own bust.  "Theory on points," he says.  I might tend to agree with that part, at
least.  So, if he, or any of the rest of you dopes of like mindlessness want to talk
like you know how it works, then you're all full or more bovine offal than I thought.
None of anyone short of the game designers knows for sure, and thankfully they're not
talking.  So Nomad should just just his stinking piehole, as if he knows anything at
all, because "guesswork" is all we got.  He can go crunch his filthy numbers with
someone else, it doesn't work here.  If he's truly incapable of comprehending
conceptual notions, then perhaps a refresher course in Elementary School education
would be beneficial.  His empt-head comments (like those from Stik) just fall on deaf
ears here.  No bearing.  No relevance.

We gleefully celebrate the death of a Nomad Tribe member in the same fashion we did
when Pikritori got himself killed.  We ducked the Bloodfeud then for the express
purpose of denying the Tribe any freebie wins against us.  The lure of denying them
any free wins this time is powerful, but we'll go ahead and see just how far down
he'll challenge for the sake of his own disgusting arrogance and self-righteous
mentality.  It's such an elementary strategy to employ, I'm sure Nomad cannot grasp
the concept.

Seems as though I must reiterate some of the content in my PA submissions because a
couple of you are apparently looking at the words and not reading.  Or perhaps
English comprehension is the problem.  Pay attention now, once again, here it comes;
I have absolutely NO concern what-so-ever if you don't like my PAs.  In fact, should
my writing make you frustrated, angry, animated, or just plain hair-ripping insane,
then I'm simply jubilant.  I want you off balance.  I want you to make mistakes.  The
advantage is then mine (Try writing something relevant instead of trying to respond
to me all the time). -- Kano

Crixus -- That was a freaking good fight. -- The Foiler

Level of Malevolence -- I guess the level of malevolence is not as high as the level
of Smurfevolence. -- Speedo Smurf

The Ghost of The Hunter -- Such a strange fight but such is the life, and death, of a
warrior. -- Pain Gwen

Buri -- Sorry to come over and clean house for you with you asking but let me say you
have some very nice junk... erra, HAD some nice junk I should say... sorry! --
Gentleben

Squiggy Crow -- Hello, I never did care for the flavor of crow and squiggy crow is
not different. -- Anita Phixx

All -- Speedo has been ranting all week about needing more smurfs to eliviate the
city blues. -- Gentleben

All -- It's good to be the king! -- King Speedo Smurf

Wow, I'm the Popularity Leader!  The crowd really must like my rendition of Queen of
the South in the opera of that name. -- Kallia May

We note with sorrow the passing of the Librarian Smurf.  His was an important post,
and he filled it well. -- the Sword Opera cast

Stik -- I dunno about beating you to seven hundred wins--plenty of time for a turn
around on that yet.  But I have definitely beaten everyone here to one thousand
losses.  Shows you what luck and no management will do. -- Jorja

Lithe -- And I'm sure you are, and if you want a day job, we have an opening in the
chorus line, but on the sands, litheness isn't enough.  Of course, me having a higher
ranking than you just about guaranteed my win, right?  At least, that's what the
boffins seem to be saying, that in order to win on a challenge, you have to challenge
down. -- Celina Hye
P.S.  How did you manage to teach me that many skills?  (pause to check)  Ah, right,
I'm really smart.  That must be it.  But you must be fairly so yourself to teach all
that while doing... ahem, not a lot.

Dred -- Interesting.  You defeated me "handily" in a "one-sided" duel, and I'm the
more popular?  Well, okay, Popularity Leader isn't the same as Favorite, but still.
If I had to guess, I'd credit the black lace body-stocking I was wearing under my
armor.  Once that got exposed... well, most of the fans are male. -- Kallia May

Sledgehead -- How utterly weird you look in profile! -- Elise Isla
P.S.  I don't like being on the losing end of gruesome fights, so I will *not* call
that a "good fight."

Row Dayo Drive -- Maybe I'm narrow-minded, but the introduction of a bucking horse
into our fight seems a little over-the-top. -- Trelaine

Feytalony -- Augh, remind me never to order a sandwich of feytalony and and cheese!
It'd probably be the death of me.  Clever, though. -- Bitter Dove

Minami Tori Spelling -- You're right, that was quite a match-up, 17 FE vs 2 FE.  Who
is choosing these matches? -- Rhaskos, the 2 FE

Reduvius -- I think you may have found your favorite weapon, well done. -- Dagan

Musubu Kin -- I thought I had you worn out, and then you have to throw that big
attack that rearranged my innards.  I gotta learn some damn riposte. -- Pietros

The Foiler -- That was some nice back and forth, but you won't take down the Champion
of Capua.  With a name like "The Foiler" I expected you to use an Epee. -- Crixus the
Gaul
