                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings my fellow warriors.  Before I begin my one and only column, I would like to
say congratulations to Beleg, Connie and Whirlwind.  Your absence from this arena
will surely be felt.  Now, If I may get down to business.  Zero Visibility.  It was a
valiant effort on your part, but today was not your day.  I truly believe that one
day you will be writing your own Duelmaster column.  To my fallen brother, Mentu.  I
will miss you.  I have asked Sovereign to let me avenge you, but he has told me that
I will be defending the title and not seeking revenge.  I will leave that to my
sister, Morrigan.  My title defense will be against Your Mama or Gallienus.  They are
the two highest ranked that are not leaving.  Good luck to whomever I face.

Now I guess I can give my vitals since I will be retiring after my next fight.  My
stats are 9(+1)-12-11-17(+1)-15-11-11.  Ad experts in initiative, decise and attack.
My favorite weapon is the battle axe.  Favored Slash and response and favorite learn
is defense.  Now the reason for the retirement.  Very low OE and low AL.  Not great
for a striker.  I may one day fight again but as of right now, I will be enjoying my
time off.  I wish everyone the best in the future.

Agasaya

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LAPUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team STREET WALKERS was 
unseated this week as EQUESTORS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-1-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at FORCE OF NATURE's guildhouse 
after a 1-4-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 14th.  Dark Arena 
anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week CARDOW HUNTERS went 3-2-0 to move up 6 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes 
note the 4-1-0 record which GODS OF WAR managed to post this round?  I don't doubt 
that such a record will draw challengers!  SPARKLE FARKLE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested ELDACAR and was awarded 26 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SPARKLE FARKLE put 
down ELDACAR, causing him to lose 20 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has AGASAYA in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the 
old women in LAPUR seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In LAPUR "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it 
but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after S'TOU.  Watch your back!  A 
match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that KYOKO posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized WHIRLWIND.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand KYOKO won victory over WHIRLWIND.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of YOUR MAMA who 
this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  I 
thought YOUR MAMA showed great skill and promise when she won victory over CONNIE.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for ATIMA in the arena or on the 
streets of LAPUR.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 
5-6-1.  This week marked the last days of BARUL who at 5-6-0 was dispatched to the 
Dark Arena by the command of MID EARTH's demanding management.  My hearty 
congratulations MORRIGAN, for thy revenge upon WEIPA, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  
Next time he will know better, eh?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Dirmael -- I like Beleg's bashing touch, and he comes off as eligible for any number
of bashing weapons, including my fav for strikers, the morning star.  <jump>
Swango!!! -- Scion

Whirlwind -- Bummer dude.  Broke my off hand weapon and everything.  That was good
work. -- S'tou

Siren -- Don't laugh, I know those are supposed to come prepackaged. -- Petunia

Wendy Day -- Once again I am victorious.  *whew*  I can't remember the last time I
lost so many feathers. -- Sparkle

Longinus -- The head-cheese has been limiting my practice time on said busting bronco
claiming I should know more about more (a whole week of scimitars & hatchets ensued)
then you come along and it's right back to the one beloved.  Thanks. -- Buzzsaw

Enyalius -- I guess you got what you were looking for with that challenge.  I feel so
violated. -- Brickhouse

Tessa -- That was just a warning, next time you're meat. -- Your Mama

Buzzsaw -- Well I gotta admit, that fight surprised me a little.  Maybe I'm not as
pathetic as Roadkill keeps telling me. -- Dirty Sanchez

YES YOU ARE!!!! -- Roadkill

Re'Amemait -- You should have kicked my butt.  And now you'll never get another
chance. -- Scary Sherry

Stormfront -- A little late on my part, but nice 5-0...with the competition in this
arena, that doesn't happen too often for anyone. -- Roadkill

Beleg -- I have to admit I did better than I thought I would, but knew what the
outcome would be when I made the challenge.  Good luck on the Isle. -- Brickhouse

Camulus -- Nothing personal about that challenge, everyone who's not the same style
as me kicks my butt, so I thought what the heck. -- Dirty Sanchez

Tye Foon -- With my fight advantage, I probably should have taught you more.  But at
least you picked up a nice rating. -- Your Mama

Amie -- Well that makes us 1-1, care to try a tie-breaker? -- Goldie

Forward -- Geez, I was hoping to get bloodfeuded, and put a miserable ending to this
poor career choice. -- Scary Sherry...on her way to the DA

Sporkis -- Don't get too excited about being "Most Avoided", I only avoided you once
with one fighter. -- Roadkill

Congrats to Agasaya, Connie, and Whirlwind on your invites. -- Roadkill and the
Street Walkers  (Wow, fighters are graduating left and right around here....)

All -- Sorry again.. for the lack of comments...again.  I apparently just have this
habit of totally forgetting about them until it's too late.  I'd be lying if I said
it won't happen again.  Guess I just need to get off my lazy behind and hop to them.
And sorry for missing this past turn.  I just had other things that took priority
that week, and I just said the hell it with...that and the fact Atima somehow
weaseled his way out of the Dark Arena the turn before didn't help.  So apologies
aside, I'm playing catch up with some of you again here.  First let me give my
congrats (some past due) to our recent graduates, Ladybug, Marius, Solar Flare, &
Beleg.  Hats off to ya and hopefully you'll run into one of my rejects in the near
future.  To the ones that will be leaving after what is it this turn?  Agasaya,
Connie, and Whirlwind, my mug of Froth & Slosh Slurpie raised to you as well.  If any
of you stop by the tavern even though we're remodeling, the first round is on me.
Whirlwind, you can drink for free for life since I know how much Storm Front wanted
you gone one way or another.  Granted we none of us helped that matter, but it's the
thought, I think. :) -- Sporkis, Will Duel 4 Mead

Eldacar -- Hey I can't help it.  You, like everyone else, knows that due to my
choosing style, I see death's shadow on a daily basis.  So sorry if I was just a
little overzealous of making sure that you would stay the hell down.  You didn't take
the hint when I knocked the weapon out of your hand at first so I had to improvise.

As for the skill raping...I'm just lucky like that. -- Tessa
P.S.  Sporkis says that was one of the most amusing matches he's even seen, no
offense.

Ankiie -- Didn'ts youz knews I's dooz mez best warks on mez backs anz mez poonts
around mez anikels? -- Rewrite
P.S.  Three minutes on his back from the opening shot and he still walks away with
the win.  I'm having that match framed.  lol :) -- Sporkis

Morrigan -- What can I say, I like baseball. -- Kyoko

Pier -- Mmmmm...five minutes, almost broke my record.  Maybe next time I won't wear
full armor and we'll see if I can improve things. -- Kyoko

Camlus -- What kind of nectar of the gods have you been shooting into your butt
cheeks lately?!?  You've just been blessed with super awesome god like strength since
the last time Goo & you fought, or someone bribed the arenamaster to end that fight
way too early.  Either way I'm calling shenanigans.  SHENANIGANS!!  I demand that you
be tested!  To top it off I still can't get Goo to come out from under the bar. --
Sporkis

Your Mama -- Standing in the same sands with you is like standing on tracks of one of
those metal rooster things called trains Sporkis told me about.  Just as fast, just
as big, and just as loud & obnoxious with its howl as it lunges forward towards
you....  Scary.. -- Tessa
P.S.  It's hard to learn anything from someone to takes remedial classes.

Whirlwind -- Hate or not, be grateful.  *Motions to come closer* You're immortal now,
and trust me, it couldn't have come sooner. -- Kyoko

Sparkle Farkle (in regards to Rewrite's 'brain case') -- No.  No there isn't.  You
just read what was in the Dueling for Dummies book I gave him to read before the
match.  Idot used it as a crotch guard instead. -- Sporkis

All -- Greetings to you who dance the sands of Lapur.  Fresh from Noblish Island are
we who walk the Abyssal Plains and eagerly do we seek to drink deep the lessons of
you who've come before. -- Lazarian (Necromancer and Ahringol Priest)

Connie and Whirlwind -- Congratulations to both of you.  Make us all proud in ADM. --
Sovereign and the Gods

Beleg -- And a belated congrats to you too. -- Sovereign

Dirty Sanchez -- Jeez!  That was quick. -- Camulus
P.S.  What was that smell?  My eyes are still burning.

Weipa -- I guess my guys have 4 cracks at you now.  I really wish you didn't have to
kill Mentu but what's done is done.  For all those that keep up with these things,
here are Mentu's stats.  13-4-7-21-11-11-17 lunger.  Yes I know.  His will is too
low, but he had experts in parry and riposte, ad experts in attack and defense and an
ad master in initiative.  Did I mention how much I hate you, Weipa. -- Sovereign
P.S.  There's always the Dead Tourney

Gallienus -- Gods, you're like a sponge.  Most warriors would have gone down after
that 2nd or 3rd hit.  I hope we can do this again soon. -- Morrigan

Jason -- I hate having to be a scout.  If we ever meet again, I'll have to see if I
can wear 2 sets of plate. -- Enyalius

Aronwe -- I see it now, you just wanted cut flowers for your table, didn't you? --
Red Lily

Ah, M. Chardinee. -- Snowshoe
P.S.  HE has a secret admirer?

     Who'd want to admit to it? -- Ed.

Fortitude -- Cold comfort, isn't it?  But some days, it's all we've got. -- Cloud
Tiger

Hot Fudge -- Ah...how to ask this....  Does your manager have really bad handwriting,
such that the abbreviation for your primary weapon was intended to be the same as
your backup but was misread?  If necessary, write out the whole name of the weapon;
it might help. -- Firefly
P.S.  I know it's the pits, but the Inputter isn't a mind reader, and she works
really fast.  Make it easy for her.

Celadus -- Be that way, but I'll GET you yet.  Just step outside any day! -- Sky
Falling

Barul -- Leaps and bounds, eh?  I guess that's why Uncle Wolf's got me working on
broad jumping? -- Cloud Tiger

Congratulations to Agasaya, Connie, and Whirlwind. -- Jorja, Uncle Wolf, and the
Cardow Hunters

Hmm, I see the slave driver has arrived to make sure I finish my personals tonight,
all in one swoop.  Darn cat.  I can't get up and walk away without stepping on him,
and then the claws come out.  (mutter grumble) -- Jorja

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
