                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Again??
     I'm probably the worst Lunger this arena saw on the throne!  Crappy learner,
pathetic attack skill... how can I win??  Please!  Can somebody worthier take my
seat?

Tezcatlipoca
P.S.  Thanks for the congrats, though.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of MORYA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  THE PENTARCHY showed MORYA what they 
were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-0-0.  What's with 
SPIDER?  She actually beat THE DEATH LORDS' YAN LO, and walked away with 13 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE PENTARCHY while they watched WHITE 
BECT clobber MADELINE.  She lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Try as he might, VETERAN MERCENARY wasn't good enough at persuading 
TEZCATLIPOCA to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to 
have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, FORCE OF 
FIVE!  The bums at STEEL AND SILK couldn't face the challenges from FORCE OF FIVE!  
No excuse for that!  What do people see in GARROT?  His 2-8-0?  STEEL AND SILK ain't 
talkin', but he's got 14 points.  Keep challenging up 29 points, POSTAGE, and I won't 
have to write about you much longer.  PYRITE always accepts those kind of 
challenges...  Sometimes what you expect to do (like in the fights) doesn't expect to 
turn out like you thought.  POSTAGE overcame PYRITE.  It don't make sense.   
     Warriors of MORYA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Tezcatlipoca -- I will certainly inform Lady Fern.  She will appreciate having a
customer for life.  (wink) -- Finance Manager

Wild Daisy Hammerz -- Sheesh!  I challenged YOU?!  Well, you showed me I am not in
your class, and you smelled so good doing it! -- Capex

Chandalen -- Wham, bam, okay, okay, you don't have to put a stamp on it! -- Postage

Boomerang -- I am lucky I won that, and I hope you don't come back around and get me.
-- Rental Car

Tez and The Pentarchy -- Congrats again! -- Finance Manager
P.S.  Loved the DM Column.

Holidays commanding, I have to send the actual turn before I get the fights... so all
this will be a little blind! -- Le Pentarque

Sorry, Chandalen, I guess your team is cursed again me. -- Patte de S.
P.S.  Better luck next time!

Yan Lo -- Seems we both have a few things to work on. -- Anvil

Druj Nasu -- Ah spit!  Bloody Orcs just don't know when to die! -- Spider

Funky Chicken -- Guess I SHOULDN'T have tried my luck again. -- Carrot

Tezcatlipoca -- Can't blame a Dwarf for trying, eh? -- Pyrite

Scarlet -- Howdy, sis!  Did ya miss me? *wink* -- Valerian

LP -- I gave up on the rooks.  *wry grin*  So I've got two really big, but workable
new members.  Odd mix, but I'm tired of paying the light bill for my fights.  Keep up
the good work, and see you on the sands my friend. -- Michael Eldritch

Dear Scribe -- First, get well soon.  As to the story, I'd hate to see it fall to the
wayside, but since I let my own do the same I could hardly fault you. *smile* --
Michael Eldritch
P.S.  That storyline IS complete, but I'm an edit freak and am working on a much
larger piece at present.  If you'd like, I'll forward the whole thing to you... in a
nice large font. ;)

     Well... you could if you want to.  But what I'm finding or just now admitting is
     that the problem with me getting stuff written for the newsletters is lack of
     time, that was the problem before, and it is not likely to ease.  So I don't
     know if I'd have time to read it properly.  I really need to be twins. -- the
     Scribe

Rollergirl -- How do you stand having those THINGS in your hair? -- Gopher Broke

Colgate Smile -- Keep that up and you'll get bugs in your teeth. -- Lily of Sarmatia

Yama -- Ah, when you get to be my age, you get good at dodging death, you see?  Or
you don't GET to be my age. -- Pop Target

Porcupine -- I was never really fond of your clan.  Nothing personal, just... too
prickly. -- Madeline

Ah, the Ambitious Guard.  Now and then, a standby makes a pleasant change. --
Cloudrider

Accruded! Interest -- You might try for suavity next time. -- Pop Target
