                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well Morya, I'm here on the throne again.  I wish I was in ADM but this is not likely 
to happen anytime soon, seeing as I'm a pretty slow learner.  I don't think I'm so 
slow that it will take me 50 arena fights but it might.  'Til then, I'm your 
Duelmaster 'til someone beats me or kills me.

Best of luck next turn.

                                          -- Drunken Donut

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MORYA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SEA DOGS, since BIG LAKE 
PURE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the taverns 
open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for OTTO'S MECHANICS, whose 0-0-0 
this turn dropped them by 6 into 11th.  Ha!  BIG SHOTS turned their 3-1-0 turn into a 
5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, BIG LAKE PURE, 
the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see 12 BRAVO win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 12 
BRAVO beat PRIVATEER and PRIVATEER lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going 
for broke or broken, our Duelmaster THE HIEROPHANT challenged this turn.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as THE HIEROPHANT takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but 
why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, MORYA?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  NUCLEAR 
KNIGHTS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BASH BROS BODY.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, THE HIEROPHANT was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego 
on this one, but SPRAIN has challenged up by 26 in an attempt against GORDONS.  And, 
oof!  SPRAIN saw stars around his helmet, after losing the fight, and disappointing 
the crowds, I might add.  And we have ANGRY MOMENTUM in a challenge, going down 9 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought ANGRY MOMENTUM showed great skill and 
promise when he won victory over 21 SPEED.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of MORYA.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Worley -- We've both stood on that bluff overlooking the river and dared one another 
to jump. Of course neither of us was fool enough.  Young animals fleeing the hunt have 
fallen off, and there's the old legend about the maiden in her runaway horse cart.  
The river swallows it all.  I went back often while you slept, followed the churning 
water around the bend where we both know what's left of the rabbits and fawns wash up 
on the far bank, and I found animal bones but never a cart wheel or a maiden. -- Nile

The Hierophant -- You're definitely tougher than Ugly Kid Joe! -- Sprain

Privateer -- It has become very clear to me that Consortium's KAA philosophy needs to 
be a true goal of everyone in Alastari. -- Assur

Big Lake Pure -- You have challenged and down challenged my stable continously.  Maybe 
one day you will even win a fight against us.  Even pond scum have thier day. On the 
flip side we have decided to return in kind.

Restrained Contemt -- You challenge down to a 0-1 fighter....  You belong under our 
boot heels. -- Bulwyf Wartooth

Big Lake Pure -- Your stay here is going to be a long painful one. You may as well get 
the other losers from your kiddy alliance here too.

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

     The crowd was surprisingly orderly, but it was still a crowd, and the Commission 
clerk, Algernon, looked at it uneasily.  Whenever this many people came together to 
petition for something, it meant trouble.  For him, anyway.  Records to be altered.  
Altering records was Bad.  It made Extra Work.
     His assistant clerk leaned close and whispered, "If it weren't for gladiators, we 
wouldn't have jobs.  Smile at them and ask what they want."
     Algernon closed his eyes briefly.  Looking at this crowd made him dizzy.  They 
were all wearing black and white stripes.  Like a herd of zebras, except that zebras 
didn't carry swords.  Then he took a deep breath and managed a smile.  "What... ah, 
what can I do for you?"
     "We want new names," the first gladiator said.  There was a number on the front 
of his shirt:  0381.  He thumped the number with his thumb.  "This here isn't a 
name--"
     "We want REAL names!"  That voice came from farther back in the crowd.
     "Yeah!  We've paid our dues," another shouted, "and we've EARNED real names!"
     One from the very back yelled, "I want to be called Tom."
     All the others turned to look at him.
     Algernon couldn't see him, but apparently those looks were accusing.  Well, he 
could understand that, "Tom" was such a... common name.
     "My mom called me Tom," the voice in the back protested.  "It's a good name."
     "It isn't the name you put on the petition," 0381 said.  "We talked about this.  
We got our manager's agreement.  You get the name on the petition."
     "But--!"
     Algernon didn't really want to keep staring at all these stripes while they 
argued.  He picked up the petition.  "These names are the ones you want?"
     0381 turned back.  "Yes."
     "It's a lot of trouble, and when other people see that YOU are getting name 
changes, THEY are going to want them--"  Seeing the gladiators beginning to frown... 
and finger their weapons, he went on quickly, "So I figure we might as well make it a 
complete deal.  A Name-Change-O-Rama.  Everyone who wants a name change can petition 
for it.  Get it all over with at once."  He glanced at the petition, shuddered 
slightly, and passed it to his clerk.  "We'll announce it, proclaim it, even, and you 
will get the names on this petition.  And others will get the names THEY think they 
should have had, too."  He paused.  "And I think I'll get a new name, I'm tired of 
being an Algernon...."
