                         SOMETHING DIFFERENT ON THE HORIZON
               (Reposting from last turn as Hal apparently forgot us.)

     A Consortium team is going to try something different.  While it is common
throughout Alastari, Consortiumites have seldom, if ever, attempted to improve a team
via the Dark Arena.  That group has been known for "playing 'em all".
     Ora and Oremaster have reached the point of a blase' attitude. (except with each
other).  Much of it stems from the makeup and the quality of 'borgs in play.  Perhaps
Ora's metal suppliers have been providing lesser quality of late?  Perhaps Oremaster
has lost his touch in crafting gladiators?
     Under the current scenario, one warrior is of tournament quality and is awaiting
The Face in a maxed-out condition.  All else is fair game.  Excluding Beryllium
Buffer, the team birth stats look like this:
ST - 5,11,11,21
CN - 11,12,13,15
SZ - 10,12,17,20
WT - 6,13,15,17
WL - 7,8,9,19
SP - 3,9,10,12
DF - 5,7,17,21
     The time has come.  Wish Ora and Oremaster well as they maneuver their way
through the pitfalls of crafting a Metal Mincer team of value.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LAPUR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as CARDOW HUNTERS is pushed 
out of top team by STREET WALKERS, who came from 7th with a 5-0-1 this turn.  Now 
keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for CARDOW 
HUNTERS, whose 1-3-0 this turn dropped them by 7 into 8th.  STREET WALKERS stable has 
parlayed this turn's 5-0-1 into a 6 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, MISS CONDUCT fought BATTON MS'KELLEY 
and gained 17 points and contributed to STREET WALKERS' 5-0-1.  KULMAR has lost to 
KICKER MURPHY, falling 10 points, while helping make WAR PARTY a 3-2-0 turn.  This 
turn ORATHAI challenged INCONEL INDENTER in what was LAPUR's Title bout.  Defending 
his title for another turn, ORATHAI kept METAL MINCERS' warrior, INCONEL INDENTER, 
from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Burning Tree until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the STREET WALKERS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on LAPUR, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding STREET WALKERS more than any other team we find METAL MINCERS.  LAPUR, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was MID EARTH's warrior JEHLCH.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  TREKKERS made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as they 
sent LOCUTUS OF BORG, with a record of 6-6-0, to LOCUTUS OF BORG death.  Farewell, 
his.  The manager of TREKKERS will not be pleased to learn that Q, a 2-0-0 fighter, 
has been killed at the hands of STREET WALKERS' MARY WANNA.  We'd like to remind 
certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's 
considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in LAPUR and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Tapper O'Dool -- Now that's what I call a fight!  Back and forth, back and forth.
Good thing you ended up back and I was forth.  Now I can do a little more damage and
you got some nice skills.  Well fought, sir. -- Q

Shralla -- Nice learns sister, keep that up and you'll turn your record around very
soon. -- Uhura

Maplesong -- That'll be enuf of that missy.  How 'bout ye be keeping yer distance. --
Scotty

Jorja -- So sorry about Butterfly.  ABs shouldn't be killing each other, but after
only 2 hits I Quark didn't have time to back off.  You could have taught more than 1
skill, having 24 more fights than him. -- Deep Thought

Butterfly -- That's what happens when you bet 20 bars of gold-plated latinum at the
Dabo tables and don't pay up.  We'll call it even. -- Quark

Obregon -- You have every right to expect a chnce to extract revenge.  While we are
not bringing Beryllium back until after The Face, we understand your frustration.  We
will not avoid you with any warrior we fight to better allow your challenges to get
through. -- Ora
P.S.  Is that really you in those television commercials?  Wow!  You are one fine
hunk!

Aye, Ora.  Jest like this'n ole miner be!  Har, har. -- Oremaster

The Scribe -- Our answer to your question is that we are ambivalent.  We are NOT
ambivalent to wishing and wanting you to get well. -- Ora and Oremaster

Quark -- It was my pleasure to take that trip with you.  Happy Trails to you.  (wink)
-- Inconel Indenter

All -- We are trying again to post a spotlight which Hal did not seem to like last
time.  We hope it shows as it is important to us. -- Ora and Oremaster

Locutus of Borg -- Listen, I'm just getting the hang of this "winning" stuff, and I
don't want to slow down!  It might go away. -- Thunderbold

Viedras -- I always heard that elves were nasty, you're proving it. -- Hardwood

Saryn -- Ooooh, the handicapper hates me!  Or maybe I need to practice harder. --
Stormrider the chastened

Yarara -- Ouch, though not a big ouch.  This time.  If you laughed, it's okay. --
Maplesong
