                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     A search has been on for the missing warrior and suspiciously the hooded
stranger has not been seen for nearly as long.  He shows up on a ship on a foggy day
to the Isle of Sunset and everyone's attention seems to be attracted to him despite
him making contact with very few people.  There's something mysterious about him that
draws everyone's eye and brings about much gossip!
     A committee of managers, if a group of drunken old men at the Broken Bone
counts, led by some of the most experienced managers such as Stik and Nomad are
meeting to discuss the mysterious disappearance of a former Sunset Duelmaster.  Some
of the younger, experience in Sunset-wise, managers grumble as the topic of putting
together gold  for a reward to anyone who can give information leading to a solving
of the mystery of what happened to the missing Champion comes up.  Daikkan, York,
Gentleben, and Pat Sajak all are pointing out that their gold is better spent on
Drinking and Wenches then on some silly reward.  After all, it's not their warrior
that is missing, and it appears to be an isolated incident.  Gentleben shouts at
Stik, over all the other's complaints, "The lousy drunk probably wandered off, got on
a ship, and sailed off to some land and cannot afford to pay his way back!"  After
all, he was acting quite strange in the days and weeks leading up to his
disappearance.
     Doc LeGrand speaks up as well, "Besides I've got to hire a bunch of new warriors
to replace these losers I have right now.  The Dark Arena fees alone are hitting my
coffers quite hard!  I see no reason why I should kick in seeing as how I just
recently returned and am also having my Guild House renovated on top of everything
else.  The exterminator alone practically held me up at Dagger-point with what he
charged to get rid of the Spider infestation I had."
     Nomad and Stik look extremely annoyed at the callousness the others managers who
are there are showing.  Stik slams his half full mug of Ale on the table, causing the
remaining contents of it to splatter out of its container and all over the other
managers.  Most stop mid-sentence and shoot him an ugly stare but it does not deter
him.  He pulls his weary, aging body to its feet commanding everyone's attention.  "I
will not stand idly by and do nothing, and you should all be ashamed of yourselves,"
his fist shaking angrily in the air as he speaks.  "What if it were your warrior, a
former Duelmaster who brought your House great honor, that was missing?  Would you
not want and even appreciate that other fellow managers, be they friend or enemy,
assist in the safe return of your warrior who you have cared for, taught your wisdom
to, spent sleepness nights worrying about!?"  Some of them hang their heads slightly
as Stik slams himself back down into the chair staring sternly at each member of the
table as he turns his head to meet each one's gaze.  He signals the Serving Wench
over and when she arrives he requests something harder than Ale to ease his tension.
     Nomad speaks as Stik is shaming each of the managers with a stare that could
turn them to stone, it seems.  He meets the eyes of Buri, as he tries to avoid being
shamed, and says, "Indeed this could be an isolated incident as Gentleben pointed
out.  But we need to find out what happened and if he be alive find this hero of
Sunset!  And perhaps this may not be an isolated incident.  Let us not forget this
stranger who arrived in our town who is often seen around town but never seems to
talk to anyone.  Is he a manager, a warrior, a member of the Commission, or even an
Andorian Spy!  Is he dabbling in magic as some have suggested.  He was seen going
into a long inactive Guild House and yet no team, nor any warriors, have been active
from that stable."  He peers around the table and sees that he has everyone's
complete attention, "It also seems strange that both the missing warrior and this
stranger were both last seen on the same night.  There have been some that state they
have seen him since but he has not been into the Broken Bone where he could regularly
be seen, at least 3 to 4 times a week.  Now all you tight wads open your coin purses
and let us put together a fund to hire an investigator and put up a reward!"
     Something about the 2 veteran managers speeches has stirred the others as they
all reach for their waistbands, or into their robes, to pull out their coin purses.
Stik and Nomad glance at each other as a number of star shaped gold Astrums plunk
down on the table, perhaps 20 to 25 of them.  Being the Elders of Sunset both Stik
and Nomad rifle through their gold and each pulls out a Talcaman Lytarri as the
others toss out a number of Bashari to add to the pile of Astrums.  The 2 veteran
managers thank the others as they gather together the pool of gold and head for the
Grim Fandango Guild House to discuss how much the allotment for a reward will likely
be after they figure the probable cost of hiring a good, reputable investigator, or
spy, for their search mission will cost them.  They also must discuss which of them
knows a good investigator or whether they will have to ask around among the other
managers.  After all, most managers in Sunset have their spies that they send around
to scout out the other Guilds.  Friendly or not a good manager is always prepared!
     They drink late into the night easily outlasting all the Grim Fandago warriors,
even Soulstice who has been given a respite from the arena as Stik is spending time
with him concentrating on getting him ready for an upcoming tournament.  Nomad
decides to stay the night as he is not sure he can remember how to get back to the
Nomadic Tribe Guild House in his current condition!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SUNSET?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, NOMADIC TRIBE, since BEN'S 
BAZAAR took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, 
MASTERS OF MELODY, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 6 in 
the rankings?  STEELERS turned their 3-1-0 turn into a 9th place rank in the listings 
this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch 
BEN'S BAZAAR'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 GREEN KING win a 
fight and gain 66 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TEXAS FLOOD beat XIAN LIN and XIAN LIN 
lost 26 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  KING BEE challenged SUNSET's Duelmaster 
for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, SUNSET may be getting 
bland, as DONEGAL stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but 
why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, SUNSET?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  SUNSET, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  NOMADIC TRIBE the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like THE UNHOLY ONES avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  MIME 
BOGGLING was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, MIME BOGGLING 
was challenged by BRACKUS, who was ranked 70 points below him.  And sure, BRACKUS 
lost alright, but gained 4 recognition for his pains.  And pains they may indeed be!  
Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, CHELL challenged up 26 to take on 
SL'S IRONWOOD of NOMADIC TRIBE.  But here's a pretty tale--CHELL did lose the fight, 
but gained 7 worth of recognition.  Some long shots can pay off, I guess.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, KARN of DOK SIK KILLAS has added the final loss to its 5-3-0.  Tee 
hee!  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these 
kinds of weapons?   
     What does the SUNSET arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of SUNSET.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

many. -- Ben's Bazaar

will see what we can do about putting you back down in your place bwahahahaha. --
Ben's Bazaar

Ominous Reign -- Welcome back you, ol ominous reigners, and all that... good to have
you back. -- Ben's Bazaar

Steelers -- I have no idea who you are but glad you came back to the arena.  Allow me
to introduce myself, I am Gentleben, the manager of Ben'a Bazaar.  Hope you decide to
stay longer than just timing a few guys. -- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

Manne, Ben & Jerry's -- I know you're just timing one or two but I hope that the RUGs
have been generous enough to you that you HAVE to stay around for a while. --
Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

     How about, "If he doesn't stay, we'll break his fingers"? -- RUG #764153

until the humilation goes away. -- Build a Bard

Webster -- Now when you go look up butt kicking you will have first hand knowledge of
the definition. -- Mime Boggling

Sunset managers --

I know that I have been gone a long time and my laboratory is in pitiful shape, but
that has been no excuse for the wretched performance of the team since we have been
back.  I filled my white board with possible recombinant DNA options, past iterations
of clone patterns for these five bird clones, and finally discovered that the base
human strains from the 1990s were no longer viable.

I have retired all the current members of LeGrand's Clone Bank and offered them jobs
attending to the 4 LeGrand warriors on the isle.  Taking their place will be a new
group of clones: Pink Flamingo, Petulant Pelican, Azure Albatross (a different one)
Crystal Condor and Snowy Owl.  I can only hope that they perform better than the last
group.
