                             Notes from the arena champ.

     George here.  George like Sunset.  Lots of nice people.  Sorry if George hurt
some of you in arena.  George don't mean to; sometimes George don't know his own
strength.
     Wanted to tell you George won't be here next turn.  George hear something about
29 effee... and need be careful don't go to ADM before Champion tournament.  George
don't know about what all this mean; me just fight.  But George happy; George with
play with his faithful Shep while no fighting in arena.  Here boy!  Fetch!!
     BAMN!  KABOOOOOMB!!
     George sorry about that.  Sometimes Shep don't know own strength.
     George fight in Adepts tournament.  George do good, except for last guy left
other than George.  Other guy strange.  George scared.  Everybody scared.  He...
glowed.  People say he magically enhanced.  People call him freak.  He looks like
short old man with skin stretched over face.  He not even use weapon.  He just laugh
at you.  Very very scary.  George hope he never see him again.  George have
nightmares for weeks.
     George's manager say ADM not for George.  Chuck say George would just lose in
ADM.  ADM judges already been looking at George.  George know he have to go soon.
George okay with that.  George go swing in trees again.  George not only play with
Shep.  George play with Ursula, too.
     It really okay being George.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon SUNSET, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at TOON INN left the arena dejected, after 
being kicked out of the top spot by CAJUN APOCALYPSE.  Good show!  He who laughs last 
didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe BREAKERS.  Last week 
they got 0-5-0 to drop by 7!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as BEN'S BAZAAR can attest...  Good things come to those who 
fight well, as THE JOKER'S WILD can attest, moving up by 4.  Can you believe it?  
GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE apparently has better things to do as SUNSET's Duelmaster than 
show up and fight!  In SUNSET, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, EVNMOR BLAK.  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of TOON INN 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of 
TOON INN found their efforts at combat frustrated as TOOL SHED apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and HARDY 
is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't CAJUN APOCALYPSE proud!  FLAP JACK 
challenged BEASTLY SMURF!  Who says ALL JACKED UP II are just a bunch of wimps!  FLAP 
JACK of ALL JACKED UP II kept its wits as it bested BEASTLY SMURF.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  TEXAS FLOOD of THE 
BLUES spared LORIO (6-6-1) from having to lose any more fights.  What's your next 
plan, RANDOM CHAOS?  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for SUNSET?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Cajun -- Howdy.  George can't challenge anywhere but down now, so George not fight.
Okee dokee? -- George of the Jungle

Cajun -- *sigh*  Some things don't change even after 20 years.  If you wish to
receive no so called "downchallenges," then go to an Andorian arena.  I hear they
don't do that there...at least for the most part.  If it exists at all I would not
know, because I don't fight in any Andorian arenas (for that very reason).  Your
warrior I challenged had much more experience than George, so you really don't have
anything to complain about anyway.  In general, I challenge to maximize skill learns
in addition to winning; 8-0 challenging 20-15 usually works well for that. -- Chuck

Bishop -- I can appreciate your bravery, but I must say I do not understand your
challenge, my friend.  Did you not know about my Super Sauce? -- Super Chicken

Ben -- Thanks for the kind words!  My experience at the FTF far exceeded my
expectations.  There was no way, however, that George had any chance of beating Pepp.
Did we meet at the FTF?  If we did let me know who you were.  I think I learned the
names of about 75% of the guys, but I did not necessarily know "the guys'" manager
names. -- Chuck

Big welcome and welcome back (sorry it's late) to the Cereal Killers, Breakers,
Tomcats, Joker's Wild, World Blades, and Philanthropists!  Damn that's a lot of
gladiators to buy drinks for at the double-B!!  Be seeing you all on the sands soon
enough! -- Stik and Grim Fandango

DM G.O.J. -- Congrats on you and your team's success at the FtF.  I'm up for a round
or two, regardless.  Let's dance. -- Evnmor Blak

LP Spoonful -- Many thanks for the column and the look behind the curtain!  You may
not be all that stupid, but don't kid yourself there, you're not that smart either!
;)  Congrats on the graduation and enjoy retirement! -- Grim Fandango

Hardy -- Great to see a lot of ads from your camp last turn, but no comment for the
guy that planted your teammate?  Guess he wasn't all that well liked... or maybe you
just wanted to let your actions speak.  I heard it was a good fight but I was hoping
for some better skillage against your FE!  Oh well.  Are we done dancing or do your
other buddies wanna give it a whack? -- Sevn Hells

Jack and Coke -- SERIOUSLY?!?!?????? -- Chok Owtlyn

Buddy -- I'd like to say it was a good fight, but somehow I don't think it was.  Just
a feeling. -- Soulstice

Stout -- Shouldn't you be in the Real Beer stable with a name like that?  Regardless,
my thanks for the win and pile o' skills! -- Evnmor Blak

All -- Looks like we all still love the losin' lungers around here, cripes, look at
those stats....  Why, people, why??  Sure, I'm contributing to the glut, but at least
mine's got a winning record, hey hey! -- Stik

NAIEI -- Looks like it didn't matter now being that he is the new DM.  Everyone will
be gunning for him. -- The Cajun

Evnmor Blak -- Evnmor mad.  Let's meet again. -- Stout

Flap Jack -- Jacked Up. -- Blitz

Thor -- I will lose sleep if you are in the DA this week.  Sorry. -- Alyssa

TV DM George of the Jungle -- Congrats on a fine tourney and the capturing of the
throne. -- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

Chucky and your Toons -- Congrats on a fine 3 turn record, 11-3 is very impressive.
-- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

The Thrill -- was all mine. -- Beastly Smurf

Super Chicken -- Can you also leap tall coops in a single bound? -- Bishop
P.S.  I bet you are Super delicious

WHAM-basu the Bold -- Pincushions are a hobby of mine but you should see me get out
of an invisible box, it is absolutely... Mime Boggling

Mime Boggling -- The most boggling thing about you is how you have such a crappy
record.  Moments of brilliance followed up by hours of disappointment, maybe if you
stayed away from the "invisible boxes" you could put a little more attention into
your fights....  Hmmmm, just saying. -- Gentleben, the one who is boggled the most by
you

Wild Card -- So you had a card up your sleeve did you, oh well, too late for me as I
am fighting by torch light this morning. -- Sarah The Cleric

All -- No blood spilt in the arena last week.  Guess everyone took Kano's advice and
wore armor... or those without armor won. -- Gentleben

Bobby Orr -- I had you down and bleeding, right before you jumped up and slashed me
in the kidneys.  Good job, but I think Oenomaus wants another shot at you. --
Hamilcar

Congrats to Spoonful, the new Lord Protector -- The Blood and Sand stable

Blood and Sand should be up to a full team soon.  Deep Thought instructed Batiatus to
clear out the rabble and raise expectations for future wins.
