                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail and well met, my fellow Sunsetters!  The sun has indeed set on another
bloody turn in our glorious arena, and look who woke up and found himself on top!
Very nice!  Fish, nice try but you need a little more seasoning....maybe some fresh
rosemary.  I like mine beer-battered occasionally as well.  Make a note to speak to
the arena chef (or maybe just the short-order cook at the Broken Bone anyway) about
that, would you?  The current crop of challenger champs has suddenly thinned with
some graduations and at least one untimely death, and I find myself with fewer
choices.  I would hate to give my good buddy Lupus a loss.  And Pietros, well, he
smells like soup.  So, if I remember correctly I put out a challenge to Cold Shot.
By now we will know if I met with success or defeat on the sands.  Either way, it's
been real.  Later!

                                      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.  NOMADIC TRIBE turned their 4-1-0 turn 
into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch ALL JACKED UP II's heads swell from their 
4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see DAGAN win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
PHILLIPS HEAD beat CRESCENS and CRESCENS lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
COLD SHOT challenged SUNSET's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as COLD SHOT takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else 
do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  OMINOUS REIGN was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BEN'S BAZAAR.  Ha 
ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, LUPUS MAJOR was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little 
credit to DUST of THE BOWLS for challenging up by 19 to GRASS SEED.  DUST lost to get 
63 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SUNSET's 
morgue.  More variety.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, TITUS 
of LUDUS MAGNUS has added the final loss to his 7-5-0.  Tee hee!  A big yahoo goes 
out to OBSTAKUL this turn, for revenging GRIM FANDANGO's bloodfeud against CELESTIAL 
WRATH's warrior MICKEY O'RION.  Heh, heh, heh.  It's about time RAYLOS got beat for 
picking on warriors like GWENHYVAR.  Bravo, DARK OVERLORDS.  See you at Wildlife 
Unlimited.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

He Be Gb's -- Future fights with you gives me the he be gb's.  Nice! -- Pat Sajak

Edge -- 16 will get ya 20! -- Black Jack

Bell -- I fell 3 times cause I was drunk!  I had blood in my alcohol system. -- Jack
and Coke

Questiona -- You had a leprechaun up your arse didn't you. -- Jack and Coke *shaking
his head*

All -- Sorry I've been away for a while.  Been dealing with a real-life freak flood
aftermath.  But, not to worry, nobody hurt and we are pretty much back to normal. --
The Cajun

     Good.

Lenny Spark -- I admire your team's continuance of the bloodfeud to get your
challenge in, well played.  Thanks for all the skills in this one! -- Bulous

Jack and Coke -- How about let's agree to teach each other a little more next time --
Questiona

Saradoc -- I was just this close to attacking... good job not letting me get there --
Dust

Raze -- Congrats on the throne, didn't realize we were fighting for the top spot.
For some reason, every random matchup I get... one of your style choices, not much
chance of success for me there (even if you weren't pretty good in your own right) --
Fish

Pietros -- I really should have won that fight.  That was impressive for you, but
depressing for me.  I am not used to losing when I get the chance to swing. --
Batwamba

Grass Seed -- I thought things should work out like that.  I don't think I remember
anyone making a joke about planting you.  How is that possible? -- Gitchigoomie

Miter Box -- Somethings I do well.  Cutting up things at odd angles is one of them.
-- Lupus

Edge -- Not so good.  At some point the boss is going to expect a few more wins. --
Wambasu

Deimos -- Congratulations!  You got to be my first!  I look forward to many more
victories in the future! -- Ozadanwin

Welcome to the World Blades!  Stay long and have a drink on Stik at the Broken Bone!
-- Nomad and the Tribe

Is that a Fandangoan on the throne?!  Congratulations to Raze!  We shall raze a glass
to you at the Bone tonight! -- The Tribe

Raze -- Congrats on capturing the throne. -- Ben's Bazaar

Deviation -- Team on the move with 61pts, very impressive. -- Ben's Bazaar

World Blades and Brandy Hall -- Welcome to the sands of Sunset, may your blades run
red with the blood of your foes. -- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

All -- Mime Boggling would like to show his appreciation for all the dance requests
last week but he is a man of few (no) words and to tell you the truth he is still
boggled by the sheer number of requests. -- Gentleben

Flap Jack -- Shut your flap...Jack, you got lucky now go count somewhere else. --
Tank Ewe

Lavern Temple -- Vod-e-o-do, what a woman! -- Mime Boggling

Slayer of Nazguls -- Do I look like a nazgul?  Or nazgulian?  Or what ever?  NO, I DO
NOT. -- Alpha Smurf

Bell -- Not the fight I wanted, oh well. -- Beastly Smurf

Lil' Jack Horner -- Go blow your horn or just go. -- He Be GB's

Marma Duke -- Bruno isn't a great warrior and gets challenged with challenge strats a
bunch so I decided that it would be in his best interest to shake things up with an
If Challenged strat sometimes.  Usually Bruno avoids Batty and Tistheseason, but I
went with Tool Shed due to the sheer number of guys that could hit up Bruno.  Sorry
about your warrior, but from here on out Bruno will sometimes be going for a kill
when he gets challenged. -- Bill the Bard

Dirtywork Scapegoat -- Nice fight, sort of.  Grats on the bloodfued. -- Bruno

Bulous -- I know the BF is already settled, but I wanted to try out a different kind
of strat than I have used before.  Back to the drawing board. -- Lenny

Spoonful -- That wasn't such a great challenge for me but, as I suspected, you didn't
kill me.  Thanks! -- Shirley

Mime Boggling -- The striped shirt and the beret are rather distracting. -- Lavern

Black Jack -- You said "Hit me," right?  That's what I heard. -- Rita Poole

New and Returning Teams -- Welcome and Welcome Back to Sunset!  The dueling is hot
and the beer is cold.  First round's on Stik. -- Bill the Bard and The Red Blades

LP Sledgehead -- Congrats on the invite! -- The Red Blades
