Clan Crow's Votes

After lookin over the newsletters of the past, we at Clan Crow have decided once
again ta cast our votes.

     Best DM -- We must admit we cannae decide this award.  There be so many good
ones this year!  Our own Killian McGuinnes, Lucky Eireann, plus Whip Me O'houston,
Silver Saw, Snow Drop, Mr. Spock.  Me was just impressed with the over all quality O'
leadership in Lapur so me an me Clan want ta vote for all ye!  Cheers ta a good year
all round.
     Worst DM -- This be easy for us.  It be Forge Deathwind the worthless lout!
Cannae get his act together, had a dung record an we thought we never be rid O' him!
     Most Disliked Team or Manager -- Zodiac we personally knew this team and manager
and she be much like Forge.  Unreliable, cannae get her act together and dannae play
enough or participate enough, never replied ta personals, made a spotlight or nothin.
     Most Avoided Team -- Though we not be 'fraid O no one in particular we found we
avoided those Street Walkers quite O bit due to the quality of their stable compared
ta ours.  Those wenches be bad!
     Most Challenged Team -- We think we challenged many Clubs N Clones, Equestors
and Serpents Hold.  Mostly cause they always be 'round me clan an in kickin distance.
     Best Team Name -- As much as me clan avoided them we still like the name(s) O'
the Street Walkers me could have a lot O fun with a team like that! (wink)
     Worst Team Name -- Plates gets our vote again this year and we suspect that be
why they dannae be back since!
     Best Warrior Name -- Me like Capt. Antsy Pants cause me mummy use ta call me
antsy pants when me was a wee lad.
     Worst Warrior Name -- Lucullus and his brother Lucilius just cause we kept
gettin them confused and they names be a pain ta spell right.
     Best Personals Writer -- Though Jorja's quips be makin us laugh, the one(s) that
really bust our guts is Ora and Oremaster, Lapur's own version O' Jerry Springer show
right in our very own Arena!  HA!
     Best Spotlight Writer -- Jorja always has good stories for us ta read before bed
time!  Keep up the good work lass!
     Marcus Award -- Mad Dog cause he seemed ta not wanna go and O' course Forge
Deathwind we just wanted him off the team!  We couldna DA him just cause he was an
AB.
     Ahringols Award -- Trail O' Tears never seen so many visit the DA.
     Bonnie Award -- Carnage he seems like a bad mofo!

Best AB -- Trinket -- we wish Forge be a lot more like you!
Best BA -- Inconel Indenter whatchamacallit -- it be the only BA to make it anywhere
     of note since Smack O'malley that we recall.
Best PL -- Snowdrop and he/she had a good record ta boot.
Best PR -- Ours goes to Pinky over Rindel just cause we think there be a conspiracy
     in Pinky's death so Rindel could have the spot!  Pretty sneaky, Mid Earth!
Best PS -- Capt. Antsy Pants -- You be pretty antsy to be a PS in the first place.
Best SL -- Mr. Spock his pointy ears were distractin.
Best Striker -- Carnage did Lapur proud in arena and the tourney.
Best TP -- Cairraig Amadon -- just cause there dannae be many ta choose from that
     went far.
Best WOS -- Lucky Eireann only WOS duelmaster the whole year (unless we overlooked
     someone.)

So there ye have it!  Clan Crow votes of the year!  Good lucky this year! SLANCHE!!!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as EQUESTORS can attest...  Say what you will 
about blind luck and dirty fighting, but MID EARTH will tell you 590-527-27 is 
nothing to laugh at...  Practice pays for DANYA, who pummelled SWEET BIRCH, to pocket 
18 points.  MENHOIR certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to 
GILEAN YASUR and losing 13 points in the process!  Like a flirtacious debutante, 
LAPUR's Duelmaster CARNAGE found itself the creature of the hour, being "invited to 
dance" 4 times!  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as QUARK of TREKKERS met 
the Duelmaster.  In LAPUR, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves 
a new Duelmaster, QUARK.  Word has it one team in LAPUR is taking speech lessons to 
try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of METAL MINCERS should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of METAL MINCERS 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as CLUBS 'N CLONES apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Call 'im brash!  Call 'im brassy!  Call 'im 
brave!  Call 'im sassy!  UHURA will face CAPT. ANTSY PANTS, up by 27.  Aaaah, just 
call 'im dead meat.  Soopreyes, soopreyes!  UHURA emerges from the fray 1 points the 
richer.  Good show, UHURA!  Word has it SAMM suffered a romantic setback.  Note how 
he challenged RUTILIUS, 27 points his senior.  Not to smear a reputation, but 
EQUESTORS must be a little surprised, as RUTILIUS blew it when facing SAMM, 27 points 
below him.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
LAPUR would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  LAPUR, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Burning Tree.  'Til 
next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Oh, how nice!  Had me some Snake for breakfast.  Tasty little serpent.  Yup. --
Bismuth Bender

Cigil!  Cigil?  What kind of name is that.  I had fun punchin' on it! -- Plutonium
Punch

Lhisson?  I drew Lhisson?  Whew!  I'm yet alive.  He was way too skilled, and way too
experienced, and way too good for l'il ole me.  Pshaw! -- Beryllium Buffer

Good luck to all Lapurians.  I hope your Mailer results were fulfilling. -- Ora

Carnage bea duelmaster.  Damme fine!  Aye. -- Oremaster

Viedras -- Boy, did me teach ya O' thing or two...too bad it dannae be with me
weapons! -- Batton Me'Kelley

Plutonium Punch -- You clod, you coulda at least been kind enough ta teach me
something useful after all the time me put inta our fight! -- Cigil Me' Bollix

Quark -- You just have more practice. -- Kicker Murphy

Priore -- I now have an achy-breaky head, thanks, runt. -- Miley Virus

Versus -- Sorry about that, I had a craving for ribs. -- Miss Conduct

Casimir Pulaski -- We find your attention to our team a little suffocating.  Maybe
you should start playing hard to get. -- Mary Wanna

Calypso -- I'm not too thrilled about my arena name and I guess I took it out on you.
-- Broadzilla

Jorja -- We are sorry to hear that our guild name irritates you.  Contrary to popular
belief, we are NOT ladies of the evening.  Every single one of us Walked the
Streets... as orphans.  We had no family, no money, no real purpose.   But someone in
the city took us off the streets, gave us a place to live.  Someone gave us an
education, and for those who wished it, someone gave us training for the arena.
Someone finally gave us hope, someone believed in us, and someone made us believe in
ourselves.  All we that has ever been asked of, is to reach out and return the
kindness that someone gave us, so this cycle can continue.  One of the biggest things
we all have learned is that we ARE someone, and if someone wants to look down their
nose at us, we will break that nose.  We are a family here at the Street Walkers, and
while some may think it's a dysfunctional family, it's still a family that looks out
for one another.  People have jumped to conclusions about us as individuals all our
lives, so why should it bother us that people have jumped to conclusions about our
guild name.  Shame on them, not us. -- All the former, present and future Street
Walkers, and damn proud of it!!
P.S.  You are a great part of this arena, when our vote was cast for best spotlight
writer, it was because you deserve it, regardless of your job.  You are a gifted
writer and we look forward to every single spotlight.

     Well said.  About your team name, that is.

Lapurians -- I thought I was leaving this great arena, but my replacements have been
so interesting lately that I just cannot go.  Besides, I need to graduate Quark and
see his favs. -- Deep Thought

Brlee -- Hellooo, Big Boy, I don't mind getting slapped around a little, but that was
a little too hard. You must not have heard me say the safety word. -- Sulu

Kicker Murphy -- Wanna try that a third time.  I'll put 20 bars of gold-plated
Latinum on a hat trick for me. -- Quark

A new Trekker is beaming down...make it so for KAHN! -- Deep Thought...this one
should be fun to run.

Miley Virus -- I have to admit that I don't LIKE fights that could "go either way,"
because so often they go the OTHER way. -- Stormrider
P.S.  Hey, call me shallow, but I like to win, you know?

Roadkill -- Yeah, well, she was walking around the guildhouse with a bowsaw last
week.  It worries me. -- Hardwood

Hmm, I note that I'm very popular with the fans.  I think this is PROBABLY good, so
long as they don't expect me to "donate" from my meager earnings to their favorite
charities. -- Stormrider

Uhura -- That's the thing about a really hard wood, you can't communicate through it.
-- Hardwood
P.S.  Or with it, according to my teammates.
P.P.S.  I never pictured you as a redhead.

Powder Puff -- Ah... you might have been all puffy and sweet, I suppose, but I
couldn't get the can open to find out. -- Stormrider

Lo'Gosh -- Might you have had an input error?  Somehow your weapon choice seems...
odd.  Yes, I know, the Commission says you're well-suited, but what do they know? --
Claybank

Telandria -- Unlucky for you, but next time you can challenge and avoid and get a
better match. -- Sweet Birch
P.S.  Why didn't you learn something?  I was teaching like crazy.

Polybius -- Wow, I know it won't always be that, well, not EASY, but successful.
Still, I thank you for a promising beginning. -- Grassfire

Did we just go five-oh?  That is weird.  Must be Mercury Retrograde or something. --
the Cardow Hunters
P.S.  No, we have no idea what Mercury Retrograde might imply to someone who studies
that kind of thing, but it sounded cool.
