                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hey, what's up?  I am!!  It is good to be here.  I want to tip my hat to Snake
Charmer, it was about time someone from Just Chillin finally beat you.  It has been a
long road to the top and I hope I can last longer than my buddy No Hurry.  I see some
strong challengers that all want it--The Democrats, Poison Clan, and of course
Kellumbo's Kids (haven't they had enough Duelmasters of late?).  I hear there is a
big tournament coming up, but when I ask Mr. Freeze he just keeps talking about some
other contest with a bat and a ball--I'm not sure what that is about, I'll take a
scimitar over a club any day.  Well, I would rather be fighting than writing so it is
back to the practice yard.  Until the next time.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SOLVEN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as KELLUMBO'S KIDS is pushed out of top team by DON'T ASK SANDY, who came from 4th 
with a 4-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for TREE PEOPLE 2, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 7 into 
14th.  LEGIO ITALICA stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 6 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 7th place.  Good work, guys!  The DON'T ASK SANDY 
guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, JUSTUS fought TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE 
and gained 20 points and contributed to LEGIO ITALICA's 4-1-0.  BIFF STREICHER has 
lost to CHARLES RANGEL, falling 15 points, while helping make MEDIEVAL CHAOS a 3-2-0 
turn.  NANCY PELOSI challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to 
dethrone JUST CHILLIN's warrior.  And all eyes were on NANCY PELOSI this turn as she 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  SOLVEN has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls 
in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were SOLVEN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding KELLUMBO'S KIDS more than any other team we find THE ZOO.  
SOLVEN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that ELDRIDGE PHANT from THE ZOO was SOLVEN's most challenged warrior 
this turn.  I don't know about you, but SCHWARZENEGGER challenging down 20 points to 
THE REPUBLICANS' SUPPLY SIDE, is not really worthy of KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  We're not 
surprised to hear that SCHWARZENEGGER overcame SUPPLY SIDE, but I bet it would be 
interesting to hear why KELLUMBO'S KIDS made such a challenge.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  ON A 
DATE, does your manager know you're challenging down 16 points to fight ELDRIDGE 
PHANT from THE ZOO?  It pains me to see warriors take advantage of the system like 
this.  ON A DATE subdued ELDRIDGE PHANT, as if it surprises anyone.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SOLVEN and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Al Gore -- Liar!  Me a liar, no you're a liar!  Pffft.  For the record, I can not
remember a single time that I have ever down challenged.  You on the other hand...
whew, I thought you just had bad posture.  Then I found out you were always looking
down for someone to challenge.  Oh, and another thing.  I never lie!  Well usually
not.  OK, sometimes I don't. -- Master Tazo, mgr. The Poison Clan
P.S.  That shut you up didn't it, Ya.

Zebroe -- Sorry about the dirty challenge, but Kellumbo told me we were shooting to
break Tazo's three turn mark, and we needed a good turn.  Best of luck and enjoy the
skills. -- Schwarzenegger

Off Style -- I guess you shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.  Thanks for the
easy win.  Care for more? -- Lucias Clay

What Up -- Congrats and well done.  If it hadn't bad been for that last shot before
you went down from being tired...ah well, if wishes were horses we'd all be riding.
-- Snake Charmer

Blind Illusion -- Hey now big boy, if you had wanted to dance, all you had to do was
ask! -- Jessica

The Pheonix -- You had better watch it.  I know someone, who knows someone, who knows
Bonnie, and I just might have to call in a favor or two. -- Name Dropper

Arishtarte -- Funny PA last turn.  :)  You sure are a funny guy! -- Name Dropper

Leeta -- My warriors and I would love to be included in your team spotlights.  If I
can be of any help in any way, just give the word.  Humbly yours, -- Detective
Kellumbo

Talon -- You sound like my kind of guy.  Welcome to the best darn Delarquan arena in
all of Alastari! -- Detective Kellumbo

Master Tazo -- I do believe that Al Gore just called you a...I shudder to say it...
LIAR!!!!  Don't take that from him!  Show him who's boss. -- Detective Kellumbo

Al Gore -- I simply cannot believe how Taco lies about you and writes those rotten
team spotlights and all.  Are you going to take it!?  Give it to him, big guy.  I
wouldn't put up with it! -- DK

Hey new teams -- Just curious who manages each of you????  Speak up, and let your
name be known. -- Detective Kellumbo, mgr. Kellumbo's Kids

Schwarzenegger -- I can see why other people get all upset about this.  6-3,25
challenging 0-1,1?  Heck, I'm moderately upset myself.  So I guess I will actually
have to bestir myself to the point of issuing avoids.  This arena really isn't small
enough for that to be necessary. -- Leeta, The Zoo

Clint Eastwood -- Shot down in the street!  At least it wasn't fatal.  For that
slight mercy, my thanks. -- Zooie

On A Date -- Not even if you offer to feed her?  In broad daylight, besides?  Gosh,
that's tough. -- Eldridge Phant
P.S.  Well, okay, I can sorta see it since you're a golem.  What woman would want to
date a golem?

The Basilisk -- A bad style match for you, sword-sister.  Fare you better next time.
-- Arishtarte
P.S.  And the more males you turn into statues, the fewer dirty socks there'll be
lying around the guildhouse, eh?

Neon Knight -- Wow, that really IS neon-colored hair!  I'm shocked and, uh,
chaotically illuminated, too.  Gosh. -- Kiwira

Solven -- So the arena's not so small as it used to be.  And the challenge of
Schwarzeneggar to Zebroe really was out of line.  (sigh)  You may congratulate
yourself, Detective Kellumbo, you have driven me to using avoids.  (deeper sigh)
Next thing you know, I'll be making strategy changes.... -- Leeta, The Zoo

Talon -- I would say welcome to you, but I can't.  Let's just say, you don't DC me, I
won't retaliate with DC's. -- Al Gore

No Hurry -- Good fight.  I got you with my scum hunter setup.  I thought I was toast.
-- N. Pelosi

Brujah -- I hate scum.  Too many here in Solven.  Killing my record.  Might be time
to make my own. -- Al Gore

Judge -- Looks like we got identical lungers when I look at the skill learns.  Let's
see how it goes after Edwards gets five fights under his belt. -- Al Gore

Leeta -- The Republicans offer the following rebuttal to your position on
downchallenging in last turn's personal ads.  You state "the way a manager challenges
and how he feels about doing it is between him and his conscience or other
appropriate concept.  It is not, in my opinion, something that requires the sanction
of the arena community at large."  You could not be more wrong.  If you play like a
punk, you deserve the scorn and retribution of the managers in the arena who do not
appreciate this type of play.  No one is telling you that you cannot do it.  But
those managers who do not appreciate this type of play should not be "silenced"
simply because the rules do not technically bar this type of dishonorable play.
Interestingly, the few managers who downchallenge here in Solven are the same
managers that routinely gloat about their winning percentages.  You cannot seriously
believe that we should remain silent about that.  Why do you think their winning
percentages are high?  Also, it's not just small downchallenges certain managers
(cough...Kellumbo) challenge down in excess of 20 points.  Give me a break.  Your
predecessor, Morris, was annoyed by the massive downchallengers as well.  So in
conclusion, you play like a punk in this arena, you can expect to be ridiculed and
attacked. -- Judge

Easy Breeze and Just Chillin -- Nice 18 point downchallenge punk.  When we get in
range, you will get yours. -- Judge

Leeta -- The challenge system was set up to protect a manager who believes only in a
certain way of game play.  In a Delarq arena, it's acceptable to DC.  For those who
want to play that way, they should have put their team there.  Here in Solven, I play
the way an Andorian should.  Upchallenge only, in general.  My team in Sunset plays
by Delarq rules.  If I and others can follow the rules, no reason you or anybody else
can't.  Nobody is making you stay here.  If you choose to stay, please follow the
traditions of the arena. -- Al Gore
