                             Notes from the arena champ.

     On top again, and how sweet it is being that I am headed out of here to the big
show after this turn.  Thank you all for making my time here in Sunset a memorable
one.  Most of all, I'd like to thank my master and mentor, The Cajun.  Thank you for
training me to be a bone-crushing bad ass and not just an everyday scum.  Everyone
think of me on these sands of Sunset, and may we all meet again.

                                          -- Hardy

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SUNSET!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE BLUES was unseated 
this week as ALL JACKED UP II moved up from 8th ranking to take the top spot with a 
5-0-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon THE BLUES this time out who 
this turn suffered a fall into 9th position in the wake of a 0-4-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
ALL JACKED UP II went 5-0-0 to move up 7 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 
4-1-0 record which BLOOD AND SAND managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that 
such a record will draw challengers!  IXION caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested UNDERDOG and was awarded 23 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, PHILLIPS HEAD put down BLITZ, 
causing him to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon 
the will of others, Duelmaster HARDY Bloodfeuded HAMILCAR last week in a match to 
decide the fate of the throne.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  
All hail HAMILCAR, Duelmaster of SUNSET!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SUNSET.  SUNSET, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is TOOL SHED, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of GRIM FANDANGO are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  MIDNIGHT take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in SUNSET.  Give JACK REACHER credit for its courage.  Did you note how 
it challenged ZEE despite the 31 point difference in their rankings?  I must admit to 
some joy.  Before my very eyes the underdog in this contest, JACK REACHER, defeated 
ZEE to claim victory and recognition.  I cannot but express pride for the 
fearlessness of BLOOD N GUTS who cast caution to the winds and challenged TYQUAN 
DEAUX, a fighter 31 points higher.  4 points of newly earned recognition and a dose 
of my admiration is what BLOOD N GUTS must now weigh against the defeat which 
resulted.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of SUPER CHICKEN who this week 
posted a challenge to a warrior a full 15 points below in the rankings.  I thought 
SUPER CHICKEN showed great skill and promise when he was defeated by WHEELBARROW.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  This week's duel proved deadly to BLOOD 
N GUTS as he fell to the more renowned warrior, TYQUAN DEAUX.  How will BREAKERS find 
revenge?  TEXAS FLOOD must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the arena by 
a successful Bloodfeud won by BRACKUS of RANDOM CHAOS.  Hail BRACKUS for thy victory! 
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Metaru Hei, Brackus, Bishop -- Why why why??  Stop challenging me!  You're just
beating your heads against the Super Sauce! -- Super Chicken

Cajun -- "Chuckless?"  Did you mean, "Chuckles?"  "Chuckles" is okay I suppose;
"Chuckless" I could do without.  I am Chuck; I am not "without Chuck." -- Chuck

Stik -- LARGE FE disadvantage...HUGE.  When people complain about so-called
"downchallenges" coming from a warrior with half their experience, I have very little
sympathy.  My skill learners challenge to maximize skills, and challenging warriors
they might be able to beat with lots of FE is a good strategy.  For example, Tom
Slick with 3 FE challenged a 7-5 striker.  He got tooled...but he learned 5 skills,
so mission accomplished.  On the other hand...if Underdog gets one of his
challenges...that would leave something to complain about.  Lol. -- Chuck

Lil' Jack Horner -- That was a very fun fight even though I lost. -- Mime Boggling
P.S.  You're not making me feel very good about my chances in the tourney haha.

Thak -- That was fun.  How's the arm? -- Beastly Smurf

Kilmoar -- That was an enjoyable fight.  I was a productive scouting trip. --
Centaurian

Texas Flood -- You are much better than I had hoped you would be. -- Bishop

Pink -- Good fight, the least you could do is teach me something....stingy. -- Great
Mother Smurf

DM Hardy -- Hey!!!  Look at you all sitting on the throne and everything!  Congrats.
-- Ben's Bazaar

Celestial Wrath -- Welcome back, sorry for your loss.  Hope your replacements were
worth while but I know it will be hard pressed to replace those two. -- Gentleben and
Ben's Bazaar

Stik -- Thank you, my friend. -- The Cajun

Hamilcar -- Damn you.  Bobby may have gotten a little cocky, but damn you! -- The
Cajun

Cajun -- Thanks, sorry for your loss. -- Brandon

C. Wrath -- Sorry about Tolliver and Vax.  That was a harsh random matchup for Vax.
Guess Nick is gonna be busy the next few turns. -- Tolbin

Centurian -- Hope that plan works for ya at our next meeting. -- Samuel

Hardy -- Grats on the invite and good luck. -- Thak

All -- heard that insane namager of mine talking about a night fight for me because

of a few losses to a Smurf.  So I figured a few max challenges and I'll either
impress him or die.  Sooo...scratch Stout and Blitz as they didn't fight.  WB I'd
have to pack a lunch so that leaves that friggin Smurf!  So to the Death! -- Thank

Oenamaus -- Nice fight! -- Samuel

DM/LP Hardy -- Pretty good results from one good parry with that big stick, eh?  The
win, the throne, and your immortality!  Maybe a rematch this turn...congrats! --
Evnmor Blak

Absente -- That is how that is supposed to work, I do believe. -- Chok Owtlyn

King Bee -- Got me there.  Ouch. -- Sevn Hells

Anubis -- An auspicious debut, my friend.  I would definitely love a rematch some
time soon... -- Soulstice

Gramm -- Unorthodox, yes.  Intended?  No.  At least I got my train... -- Wonswing

     Burlington-Northern, wasn't it?

Cajun -- Condolences on your piker there.  He was lookin' good, but, live by the
sword... -- Stik

Dark One -- Welcome indeed to the sands of Sunset!  I hope your stay is more
permanent and long-lived then the average tourney team drop-in.  Time will tell.
Meantime, join us down at our watering hole, the Broken Bone Tavern (team-owned), for
a round or two on us post-fights! -- Stik and Grim Fandango
