                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I'm outta here, the first from this stable.  I'm kind of unusual, being a
low speed Striker:  7-9-15-21-17-4-11.  With numbers like that, I'm actually a decent
candidate for an ADM Striker, if one were inclined to do so.  I thought for sure the
SC would be my favorite weapon, I sure used it well, but it turned out to be the SS.
Good Luck to the next DM! -- Red House

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SUNSET a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as THE RED BLADES is pushed out of top team by THE BOWLS, 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 LUDUS MAGNUS, whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 7 into 14th. 
ALL JACKED UP II stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-1 into a 7 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 10th place.  Good work, guys!  The GRIM FANDANGO 
guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, JACK THA RIPPA fought RUTUBA and 
gained 20 points and contributed to ALL JACKED UP II's 4-1-1.  LUPUS MAJOR has lost 
to CC RIDER, falling 17 points, while helping make NOMADIC TRIBE a 1-3-0 turn.  
TIMOTH challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone THE BLUES' 
warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and RED HOUSE remains 
SUNSET's top warrior for another turn.  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.  DEVIATION has cause to stand tall, 
as they were SUNSET's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding DEVIATION more than any other team we find DEATH MOB 4.  SUNSET, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was DEATH MOB 4's warrior BLACK LOTUS.  More fighters challenged her than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, JACK AND COKE from ALL JACKED UP II 
challenged up 22 points to fight XIAN LIN from the KANO CLAN stable.  JACK AND COKE 
perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it defeated XIAN LIN and ended up with 21 
recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  RUTUBA has departed SUNSET, leaving LUDUS MAGNUS without their 5-5-1 
warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  Kudos go 
out to HELRAZOR this turn, for revenging GRIM FANDANGO's bloodfeud against LUDUS 
MAGNUS' warrior TRIUMPHUS.  Well done.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob 
the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Venemous Concubine -- I hope that left a lasting impression on you as I leave this
place and head to Talahya! -- Level of Malevolence

Venmous Concubine -- Okay, I see my friend Level of Malevolence has pissed you off to
the point where you took it out on poor lil' ol' me....  Where's your holiday cheer,
I ask?! -- Tistheseason2blethal

Gitchigoomie -- Well done, young nomad. -- Hoosier Daddy

Inspire -- Go hit the treadmill, young padawan. -- Dirtywork Scapegoat

Gwenhyvar -- I shall not let darkness come between me and the light. -- My Sword and
Savior

Congrats to all of the recent grads! -- Marma Duke

Crixus -- One sided challenge melee?  Yeah, one sided, me doing all the attacking.
That was rather scummy of you, don't you think? -- Gwenhyvar

Lupus Major -- You were close to helping me tie the record for kills in Sunset,
thought I was going to get another notch.  Oh well, maybe next time. -- Timoth

Galina -- Well, thank you very much, you probably sealed my fate.  The Master says I
could not attack a hay bale or parry a twig.  After him witnessing my fight against
you, I think I got some dimly lit fighting coming my way. -- Man-O-War

Whirled Peace -- That makes twice recently that the Tribe has been able to give you a
loss.  That feels good.  And beating one of the best in the game on your challenge,
which is even better.  So, will 50 FE finally be the charm for graduation? -- Walli

Timoth -- I've been avoiding that challenge, but there isn't much you can do about a
random matchup.  But at least you kept those kills away from me. -- Lupus

Hoosier Daddy -- Nope, I was wrong.  Not being in Hoosier country wasn't your
problem.   Repeat matchups are your problem.  Thanks for win #2. -- Gitchi

Kerza -- Got one!  I'm not sure you realize how important that was. -- Wambasu the
Lucky

Bix -- You are quite the teacher!  I would down challenge you just for the learns,
but that does go against my general principles.  We'll do this again once someone
knocks me down some. -- Fish

Xian Lin -- Next time I'll try to take a swing at you.  Probably won't hit you, but
I'll try. -- Manute Jr.

Rutuba -- I like it when I get random matchups like this one!  Back to .500, maybe
F.E. Bowl will stop that Dark Arena talk for a while. -- Bulous

Stiletto -- Honestly I feel a little bad about this one... here I am with 7 fights
vs. your 2 fights.  But I really needed to try to get stronger.  I'm sure you will
make me pay for this later. -- Dust

Crescens -- I guess I can expect to lose if I can only hit you once. -- Questiona

Welcome! -- To all of the new and returning teams. -- The Red Blades

Congrats! -- To all of the recent grads. -- The Red Blades

My Sword, etc -- Despite how awesomely that went I'm avoiding you again. -- Charity
Springs

Boudreaux -- Just how I like 'em to go down. -- Shirley

Cold Shot -- Tough break for you.  Too bad avoids can't stop matchups. -- Bruno

Inspire -- Decent fight and excellent trains.  Don't be surprised to see me again. --
Lenny Spark

Embezzling Scribe -- Was it worth it? -- Lavern Temple

LP/DM Red House -- Congrats on both the grad notice and the throne!  Glad you
survived long enough for you to get here. -- Ben's Bazaar

Kano San -- You have been extreamly quite as of late.  What up with that?  Inquiring
minds want to know. -- Gentleben

Fish -- No. -- Aunt Tilla

Spoonful -- You are a handful, that is for sure. -- Aunt Tilla

Door Man -- I saw you back there, I am not that kind of lady. -- Tank Ewe

Tymora -- You have good defense, it is a good thing I have great endurance. --
Beastly Smurf

Pietros -- Thank you for the nice replacement. -- Slaughtered Smurf Lightning

Red Blades -- Congrats on top team, nice jump. -- Ben's Bazaar

Good luck to all participants preparing to participate in the upcoming Spring MI
Tourney. -- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar
