                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I finally got a winning record, a Duelmaster's title, and an invite, all in one!
Last turn was a crazy one, lots of deaths, lots of invites... it sure makes things
exciting around here.  As tradition dictates, here are my stats: 13(+1)-5-10-17-17-
10-13 LU.  Pretty ordinary, I know... and I had to do that ST raise to get good
damage.  Got LO and mod/hi, Decise learn.  I learned a lot of Dec early on, and I was
bonused there, as many of you found out.  Now to try and get a bloodfeud in before I
go, and make room up here for Suzy Q.  Once she's gone, it will be a whole new stable
for the Blues, and we're not settling for mediocre anymore!  I'm off to the isle and
retirement. --- Texas Flood

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SUNSET!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  GRIM FANDANGO were a bunch 
of dogs after THE CEREAL KILLERS got through with 'em!  6th ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too little dodging gave BEN'S BAZAAR a 1-4-0!  I got 
a good laugh out of it!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n 
down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, THE CEREAL KILLERS' 1st moved them up to 4-1-1 
place.  What's with PACEBALL 2?  It actually beat 420 B.C.'s KNUCKLES, and walked 
away with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at CELESTIAL WRATH while 
they watched NICK SEAFORT clobber OZADANWIN.  He lost 36 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  JACK B. QUICK was reminded on the sands why TEXAS 
FLOOD is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was NOMADIC TRIBE.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at KANO CLAN ain't 
reelin'!  NOMADIC TRIBE's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, JACK FROST!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  Maybe 420 B.C.'s COLONEL ANGUS is one of those guys who likes pain, or 
something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 27 to SAM-MARIAH 
SAMURAI.  COLONEL ANGUS subdued SAM-MARIAH SAMURAI (COLONEL ANGUS getting 21 points, 
too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that BONHAM gets in.  He fights people like JACK FROST, 10 points 
below.  I thought BONHAM showed great skill and promise when he slew JACK FROST.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  HOOCHIE COOCHIE looked pretty sick and surprised when he 
learned THE BLUES is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 6-5-0?  
JACK FROST, with its forgettable 13-16-0,  was dealt death by BONHAM in a forgettable 
match.  ALL JACKED UP II didn't seem to mind very much.  KNUCKLES of 420 B.C. didn't 
know when to quit.  When you've got a 8-8-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  
MONTEREY JACK of ALL JACKED UP II got 12 points for removing another young punk.  
Tough luck, GRIM FANDANGO!  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  
You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  SUNSET is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Yarlsons everywhere!  I guess we just need the right matchup.  Wambusu was happy with
the win, he doesn't get many of those.  Ironwood was a bit less pleased with the
results of his Yarlson fight. -- The Tribe

Nick Seafort -- Nice try.  But some things just aren't meant to be.  You are, of
course, below me again in the standings so you are welcome to give me another win by
trying again.  Then, if you do win, you can get all arrogant with me.  But for now,
it is my turn. -- Torino

Random Chaos -- Well, your bashers have given our team a bit of a headache recently,
so what happened to Thak seems almost fair.  Except that we usually don't mean to
kill.  And I didn't in this case either, it just sort of happened.  And, I managed to
do it while getting ready to leave the arena, which was good for me.  So I guess you
get one shot at the BF--will Brackus attempt to do what his teammate could not?  Good
luck to him, I shall await him with my favorites ready. -- Lord Protector Ozadanwin

Professor Pummel -- And here I thought "Professor" meant smart.  That was not a smart
challenge.  I thought only non-professory people like me made challenges like that.
But thanks, you are welcome to try again if you get within range again. --
Traevenmore

Hyena -- Well, of course, the arena master likes me more... I am Bold!  Not a
mangy... well, you get the idea.  Hmmm... maybe insulting the guy who just kicked
your butt isn't a good idea.  But at least I am popular!  And Bold! -- Wambasu the
Bold but not Brilliant!

Grats to all the grads -- A mass exodus from the top begins: 4 recent champ deaths
and now 4 grads on one turn.  Make way for the young ones. -- Nomad and the Tribe

Nomad -- Congrats on the grad, the kill, and the nice 3-turn!  I got you by a kill,
though! -- Stik

420 B.C. -- Good to have you back in action!  The kill of Nannerpuss was...
unfortunate.  I have a soft spot for slashers, and hate to see them bite it,
particularly good ones.  That kill was aimed at somebody else who didn't wind up
fighting.  Perhaps this turn... you've got one shot at the bloodfeud, but I'll tell
you now Sevn will be trying to take his own vengeance for the team on Smithwick, so
we will see how it all pans out. -- Stik and Grim Fandango

The Blues -- Are you gonna make me sing them?  Come on, it was one little challenge!
Things just got a bit out of hand is all.  You know, roar of the bloodthirsty mob,
adrenaline rush and whatnot... stuff happens.  At least have the decency to teach me
something, all right? -- Fever Dream

Destiny -- Who you calling "youngin's"?  Even a lot of the newer teams here have
veteran managers behind them, so beware.  And again, welcome back to the fold! --
Stik and G.F.

Ben -- Condolences on the loss.  Best of luck on the bloodfeud! -- Stik

All -- Seven Hells graduates, he is my 3rd or 4th striker to make it out, I don't
make a lot of them.  He looks: 17-9(+1)-9-17(+1)-9-14-11, pretty much mode, only did
good damage.  He did indeed get the ol' BA for fave weapon, MOD/HIGH rhythms, learns
decise.  Exp. init, adv. exp. attack, master decise.  Started out learning really
well and I thought he could be dominant but tailed off.  Not too shabby in the end,
in any event.  Off to retirement for him! -- Stik

Congrats to all the grads this turn!  It's always nice to be able to live forever, in
my opinion anyways... -- Stik

And Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all Sunset managers wherever you are!
Looking forward to another year of crossing blades with you all! -- Stik and Grim
Fandango
