It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in CALEAM. Hope you enjoy the show. Oh, who am I kidding? I already got paid! Hey everybody, watch out for MAUREEN, who flew up 7 points in the rankings after mashing IRON FORGE like a melon. Keep your eye on this gal. And falling like a basher in the top ten was CLEMMIE, who dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with RUTHLESS JAYWALKER. Our battling duelmaster ENLIGHTENED BEING has managed to hold the title, fending off VIRGINAL CONCUBINE's none too subtle advances. Better luck next time, CALEAM. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle! Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day drinking to their memory. Better tanked than dead! Remember: alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens. Well, there's the manager of the CALEAM giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?). Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors. And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME ENLIGHTENED BEING 4642 12 4 0 97 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME LORIS KEY 4706 7 0 1 64 GOLDEN CANYON (290) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME GOLDERIE 4657 10 8 1 55 GOLDEN CANYON (290) CLEMMIE 4630 11 14 1 48 GOLDEN CANYON (290) MAUREEN 4702 6 3 0 34 GOLDEN CANYON (290) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -PLEXIGLASSJAWJOE 4650 6 3 0 33 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) -ORTH 4643 6 3 0 27 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) -SMAYNURN 4656 6 3 0 25 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME PIKE 4708 3 3 0 21 GOLDEN CANYON (290) IRON FORGE 4707 2 4 0 16 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn. THE DEAD W L K TEAM NAME SLAIN BY TURN Revenge? PERSONAL ADS The Kung-Fu Master. What a...thrill it was to be matched against him. How unutterably nasty he was, ungentlemanly, violent, even brutal, and so stingy with the skills. I can hardly contain my joy anent that match. -- Clemmie the marginally overjoyed My sarcasm sense is tingling. -- Ed. Ah, and the (oh, HA!) "Honest" Merchant. You KNOW nobody has the cognomen "honest" if he really IS honest. It's all a vicious and underhanded trick. -- Golderie I wouldn't want to appear to slavishly echo the statements of my teammate Clemmie, a bit of a peasant, Golderie is, but in this, she is right. The Honest Merchant is not somebody any honest gladiator wants to know. And, as Clemmie said, stingy with the skills. -- Loris Key Iron Forge -- I salute you for being a real opponent, even though you're too short for most kinds of dating. In fact, now that I look closely, why aren't you a dwarf? You'd make a great dwarf, and then I could ask you to help me upgrade my armor and you'd have a clue what to do. Think about getting a race change! -- Maureen That beggar was NOT polite. He made snide remarks, had bad breath, and hit me up for a "loan" on his way to the Infirmary. What are beggars coming to these days? He was a disgrace to all beggars in the city. -- Pike P.S. Of course, having a substantial body of beggars in the city is a disgrace to all the hardworking Caleamites in the city, so who cares about disgracing the beggars? Well, it seems that we didn't get a chance for Cooking with Smaynurn this cycle. Unfortunate, because I believe Clemmie had some ideas involving pasta and persimmons. I guess we'll just have to wonder. -- Pike P.S. No, really, she says if Smaynurn isn't going to be active, she isn't going to cook in public. Or even in the privacy of our guildhouse, so even WE don't know what she had in mind. 20 October 2006 In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders". The group consists of the following members: Doc LeGrande Apex Street Legal Carnage Ghoti Roadkill Valamond This group has only one rule. Respect the play of the managers of this alliance. We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others. We fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager brings. We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions. We have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on the regular city arenas. We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched. Our goal is simple. To create a ensemble of managers that will show their prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those that share the sands with our warriors. Our warriors are many throughout the land. We have no home arena. We have no pacts we abide by. Our fighters range from Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land. Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us. We are what we are. We fight how we fight. And we do it however we wish. We have no rules. We have no leader or ruler. Be prepared. We are. 20 October 2006 The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light: Where are you? EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52. Your pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight. EVERY Dark Knight is more than willing to back up their talk. So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52, REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up. If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire 2 November 2006 I received a Gift Certificate from someone. I'm assuming it's for entry into the Turf War 5. Whoever sent this to me...please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks. 10 November 2006 The Quest of the Best has come to an end. Dark Knight Toker, host of the Quest, wants to proclaim the Ultimate Victor and give a listing of prize winners. Lady Fern and her Flower Girls of the Consortium are the Ultimate Victors of the Quest. Well fought and there's nothing like coming from behind to leave us all in the dust. Can't wait to see you defend your title! (wink) Here is a complete list of managers who placed in prize positions: 1) Lady Fern, mgr. Flower Girls 2) Le Pentarque, mgr. Blood & Guts! 3) Crip, mgr. Otto's Parts 4) D.K. Heathen Hatebred, mgr. Odin's Chosen 5) Ghab, mgr. Assassin Nation 6) Fanthayne, mgr. Dark Raiders 7) D.K. Toker, mgr. Silver Knights 8) D.K. Wasby, mgr. Bronze Knights 9) The Expatriate, mgr. Bleak Legion 10) Still the Distilled, mgr. Springborne Fair Thanks to all that had the gall to show up, but I really want to thank the managers that had the mettle to survive and not run when they started getting their butt handed to them. Respect to All. Quest #1 host, Dark Knight Toker LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS ENLIGHTENED BEING devastated VIRGINAL CONCUBINE in a 1 minute mismatched Title fight.
