                             Notes from the arena champ.

Feels great to sit in the DM's chair for the first time.  I thank my predecessor for
keeping it warm for me.  I'm probably going to need help doing 2 jobs at once--you
know, my regular day job and overseeing our great arena.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SOLVEN to see 
what's new.  Like, THE DEMOCRATS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 
spot by KELLUMBO'S KIDS!  Way to go KELLUMBO'S KIDS!  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, KELLUMBO'S KIDS!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 1st!  MVP award 
for TOYS?  OLD MCDONALD's proud of her after beating FANG and getting 27 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  TWO PLUS TWO got smashed by JUSTICE, and lost 10 
points!  SARGENT SUGAR thinks his 22-19-1 and studly character is good enough to face 
up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Was that a tear I saw in SARGENT SUGAR's eye, as he 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't SUE fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that 
said SOLVEN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at 
me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS was SOLVEN's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why THE DEMOCRATS' been avoiding 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is BEAR 
MARKET popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of SOLVEN!  She's got a 
4-5-1, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I'm always kinda bummed when a decent warrior gets killed.  FANG, of 
SERPENTINE INC. had a 11-5-0 when he got bumped off by TOYS.  PISHTUSH bloodfeuded 
(is that a word?) MAXIMUS for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really 
worth it?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

I'll most likely encounter some of you again in tourneys so this probably isn't good-
bye. -- Sandy
P.S.  Mess with Morgan and there'll be a lot to answer for!!

Kangaroo Kate -- FINALLY I beat you.... --Judith

Major Muffins -- I think you've been overcooked.  You know, so spongy that pieces
flew off too easily. -- Sue

Kelldumbo -- I assured you I would keep Quisling under control.  Now you have gone
and let Max put him under ground.  A little more certain I am sure.  Unfortunately we
don't have anyone high enough to bloodfeud.  Oh well, I guess we will just carry on.
-- Wimpy

Commission -- We don't know if Darkle is good or not.  Three of his four wins have
been against the Arenamaster's hacks.  Can you find a real fighter to test him? --
Wimpy

Belorian -- With your win you have sealed my doom. It's a...Pity

Platinum -- I guess it wasn't very smart to get you desperate?  At least I learned
more than you. -- Klutz

Skeemer -- Before you challenge someone you can only hit twice and has a lot more
endurance that you, I'd think twice if I were you. -- Pishtush

Morgan -- That a shield is purple is not enough.  It needs to be impervious, too. --
Deaf Smith

Homeless Prince -- I wish you would GO home, dammit. -- Turkey Joe

Flat Tax -- If we feed you skills that way, does it make you more probable? --
Inarinda

Judith -- I had some kind of mental block against fighting you. -- Kangaroo Kate

Blind Girl -- Oh, trying for the tear-jerking "I'm so helpless" effect, huh?  Like
fun you are helpless. -- Vilma

Al Gore -- That's about what I'd expect from you.  Vilma is my NAME, dummy. -- Vilma

Vilma -- Pretty pretty. -- Robert Byrd
P.S.  Please excuse Byrd.  He's a little old and mumbles a lot. -- Al Gore

Kellumbo -- Thanks. -- Al Gore
P.S.  This doesn't mean I'm not looking for some payback.

Man, I fought four Old Mcdonald fighters in one turn.  This is not good for my
cholesterol. -- Al Gore

Judge -- Nicely done. -- Al Gore

Major Muffins and Sandy -- Congrats on graduating. -- Al Gore

Quisling -- Guess you won't be spitting on any more graves, will you? -- Maximus

Wimpy -- No problem.  I think he'll be quiet now. -- Kellumbo

Pity -- Quit making me laugh out loud.  Funny P.A. -- Kellumbo

Judge -- Uh...you were supposed to see the name.  That's the idea, wonder boy.  At
least I didn't name it Judge's "Little Buddy", if you know what I mean...wink,
wink...oh wait, you probably don't. -- Detective Kellumbo

Turkey Joe -- Hey now!  I think I found my favorite weapon!  Thanks dude. -- Prince

Rumsfield -- See, one wild swing by a little blind boy was all it took.  How
embarrassing. -- Blind Boy

Vilma -- Quit swinging at me!  I'm just a little blind girl!  No manners....

Well, after a charmed life I feel that the streak of wins may be over.  Let's see my
options:  31 FE striker, Scum TP, Scum WS, 8 FE Lunger.  Things are lookin' bleak, I
would have to say... -- A worried Maximus

Bear Market -- I hope you enjoyed that beating.  There is more where that came from.
-- Guantanamo Bay

Inarinda -- Thanks for the win and the 6 skills. -- Flat Tax

Wimpy -- I hope that you make Maximus pay. -- Judge

A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
     More info:  Master Darque, MasterDarqueDM@aol.com, or Jack Wolfspider,
russtulp@aol.com.  Or diplo Darque Forces (428) or Dynastic (433) in Arena 45.
