                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Back on top and a glorious day indeed with an incredible victory and some
incredible favorites!  My manager could even allow me to play in the immortal pond!
So, nicely done, Scarlet, I'm ready for the rest of the Empire...

White Belt

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  MORYA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for SPIDER?  
STEEL AND SILK's proud of her after beating GOPHER BROKE and getting 21 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  XI CRYSTAL got smashed by CAPEX, and lost 13 points!  
Like, CASCELLA must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from THE 
PENTARCHY.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  WHITE BECT stopped CASCELLA dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy 
that said MORYA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at Arthur's Last Stand?  Don't 
look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of STEEL AND SILK must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are EXPENSE ACCOUNT? 
STEEL AND SILK, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is XI CRYSTAL popular, or what?  It was challenged the most in all 
of MORYA!  It's got a 4-1-0, is that good?  People were asking me did THERIAULT 
REALLY challenge MADELINE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It 
wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but MADELINE wants me to write about it 
since she won victory over THERIAULT.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MORYA ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Hey!  Is that really White Bect on top of all Morya?  Kudos and congrats to LP!  And
LP gets another LP.  (Lord Protector)  He's a tough guy to beat. -- Finance Manager

Lily Of Sarmatia -- You have such a lovely name that I felt really, really bad
assessing you with a loss.  But, then, that's what we taxes are for. (wink) -- Taxes

All -- I am sorry not to have fought last turn, but corporations are holding their
cash and not making capital expenditures, so I have placed on hold.  Soon.  (I hope.)
-- Capex

Jennsen -- Well, that was enduring, and really quite profitable for me with a W and 5
skills.  Perhaps I will add you to my Christmas card list? -- Postage

Aesir Vanir -- You should have received some info this round responding to your
interests.  With that fine, fine, fine start and record of Isis Ptah, it is difficult
to believe you would have any questions at all.  Perhaps you should teach te rest of
us? Anyway, welcome again to Morya and may your numbers always be in the black. --
Finance Manager, Consortium Affiliated

Autumn Leaves -- It was my pleasure to start you off into your Fall Season. --
Accrued Interest

Eden Regal -- You dirty, rotten, low-down, ugly WINNER!  Phbttttttt! -- Software
(thinking there must have been a programming error)

Next tournament, Le Pentarque?  One piece of advice I have heard in the rumored
hallways is that you need a new FTF proxier who knows what he is doing.  That one you
have is clearly holding you back! -- Finance Manager

Boudica and Autumn Leaves and cheese louise and Noblish Island graduates or not,
there is a wealth of info to be had at:
     Terrablood.com
     Duel2.com
Join and use both often.  The many experienced managers on the Duel site are always
glad to offer advice or answer questions. -- Finance Manager

White Beat -- I let you win just to prevent a war of succession, not knowing you were
aiming to follow me.  I'll be happy to teach you a thing or two on the Isle, though.
Congrats anyway. -- Scarlet

Postage -- I will gleefully look forward to seeing you filed in the unpaid and
unretrieved trash bin! -- Jennsen

Pop Target -- At least as a target, you can be mended.  Think how bad it could have
been if you were a popped balloon orp opped cap! -- Chandalen

Gopher Broke -- Sorry it had to go like that.  But why would anyone strive to be
penniless?  I'm a go-for-rich type guy myself! -- Theriault

Khalhums Dwarf -- Did you think me being a half-Elf meant I was a half-pint? --
Cascella

Postage -- Perhaps you can tell us, how long does a Forever stamp last? -- the Dodge
Bullets crew

Le Pentarque -- We'll struggle along with the prospect of your full return dancing
before us, mirage like, to keep our hopes up. -- Jorja
P.S.  I have no idea where that mood came from!  Maybe I didn't get enough sleep.

Theriault -- SHEEP!  That is a Bad Word around here. -- Lily of Sarmatia
P.S.  We could use all those torches you're talking about to go down to Rocanis and
burn the town.  I haven't burned a town in months!

Our congratulations to White Bect, hot on Scarlet's trail. -- Jorja and Dodge Bullets

And whatever tourney was reported THIS time, again we salute the participants. --
Jorja and Dodge Bullets

A-crude Interest -- If that isn't just LIKE some people!  Kick the leaves around,
make a mess, laugh and run. -- Autumn Leaves
P.S.  I should've been a swan after all.

Chandalen -- You certainly popped one right on target that time!  Is that any way to
treat an old man like me? -- Pop Target

Taxes -- I will NOT! -- Lily of Sarmatia

Theriault -- My teammates say it's a good think you won that fight.  They didn't ask
ME, though, and I think it's BAD. -- Gopher Broke, sore loser

These Captured Orcs are rather flimsy, aren't they? -- Madeline
