                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, that ended up working out pretty well.  Because of my team's little
contest with Kellumbo, I could not bloodfeud Smelly because it would have been a
downchallenge.  Fortunately, he got a little ambitious and challenged me.  Hope you
enjoyed that beating, Smelly.  Come back anytime.  While I have the worst fighting
style for Basic DM, I am better than my record reflects.  I hope to see you all next
cycle.

                                             Your Duelmaster,
                                                       Brookes & Dunn

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SOLVEN will ever be the same.  The THE ZOO guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, ZEBROE fought TAMMY and gained 19 points and contributed to THE 
ZOO's 3-0-0.  JOHN ROBERTS has lost to GRANDPA RAT, falling 10 points, while helping 
make THE REPUBLICANS a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and BROOKS AND DUNN remains SOLVEN's top warrior for another turn.  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The 
Victory Tavern?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  THE REPUBLICANS has cause to stand tall, as they were 
SOLVEN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided THE REPUBLICANS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that CAPITAL PUNISHMENT from 
THE REPUBLICANS was SOLVEN's most challenged warrior this turn.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  
DONNETTA, does your manager know you're challenging down 16 points to fight CAPITAL 
PUNISHMENT from THE REPUBLICANS?  It pains me to see warriors take advantage of the 
system like this.  DONNETTA defeated CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, as if it surprises anyone.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that SOLVEN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SOLVEN and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in SOLVEN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Judge -- Well done on your initial 3-2 lead in wins.  It will be interesting to see
if you bloodfeud with the Duelmaster this turn, even though it will be a
downchallenge, and thus worth zero points. -- Kellumbo

Up -- What was up with that?  Wow. -- Tashell

D.O.A. Dominance -- Is this a demonstration of your name? -- Zebroe

John Roberts -- Aren't you a little, well, TALL for a cat?  I don't even want to
THINK about what kind of monstrous feline you'd be if you shape-changed! -- Benito
Chatte

Capital Punishment -- For what? -- Chaz Ducker
P.S.  You have to be specific here.

Kellumbo -- My lead, 3-2, in our little contest.  You had two losses to two of my
guys.  I even sent a warrior to the Dark Arena.  I am sure you will do better next
cycle.  Good luck! -- Judge

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
