                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Roadkill took his time walking down the hallway, he was in no hurry, but he also
didn't want to miss out on her departure.  While he always tried to be bias when it
came to the team, he finally admitted to himself that he always did have a soft spot
for Miss Conduct.  She was one of his favorites, just like Himey, Chrissy and the
Wild Thang!.  They may not be godlings, but he knew there was something special about
them when they walked into the arena, and she deserved toa a chance to follow her
path of choosing.
     "Well it looks like you're all set to go, young lady."
     "I guess so, but it seems kind of weird, it feels like I just got here and now I
have to leave again."
     "You don't HAVE to leave.  You can stay here for along as you want."
     "I know, I know...that's not what I meant.  I really want to continue fighting,
at least for now.  I've made up my mind and I think this is what's best for me right
now.  At least through the Freshman and possibly ADM ranks."
     "I just want to be sure you've thought this decision through carefully.  Maybe
take a little down time and weigh all your options."
     "Roadkill... I was dead for about 10 years!  Just how much down time do you
think I need?"
     "Good point."

Alright if anyone was curious, or even cares here's the low down on Miss Conduct...

7-11(+1)-10-21-15-4-17  She has Masters in Attack and Riposte, ADX in Decise and
Parry, and EX in Defense.  Her skill learn rate is 2.54/FE.  Her favorites are the
longsword (which totally shocked me since she only crit with it just over 50%, while
her crit rate with a dagger was over 75%.)  She favors Low/Low rhythm, the Bash
tactic (real handy with a longsword), and decisiveness was her favorite learn.  She
fought in 5 Tourney of the Dead compiling a record of 21-12-3 (and died a 2nd time).
Granted the decise learn was an asset but what hurt her the most was the fact she
never learned a single defensive skill until the last tourney of the dead when she
went 8-3-2 to get resurrected.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well me got me spot back O' top.  It be amazing how much junk O' borg can move
inta the throne room O' the duelmaster.  Me be guessing they be getting all that junk
when they assimilate.  Me also dannae relize Plutonium be having so much BO Whewee!
Me dannae think he took his armor off the whole week he be in here, much less had O'
bath.  So to whoever takes me throne ya have me ta thank for the better scent than
what me started with when me moved in.  Ya have ta do withoot the sexy flower lass
though, when me get kicked oot me taking her with me!  Ya can keep the rose petals
though!  Me would like ta stay a couple O' weeks up here on the throne.  The Ale and
whiskey be good, the servants are hot the food be good the O' belly.  Me promised
Owsly me wouldnae get plastered this time 'round so ya all can expect me ta show up
an fight.  That bein said me need ta end me column as the dancers be comin in and me
dannae be missing this for no one!  Then me havine trainin after.  Oh an for the
recored Plut (ya dannae mind me dallin ye Plut do ya?) me dannae have no intentions
O' killin ya.  Just wanted ta make that clear.  Til the next week or the next time me
sit on "me" throne, Peacw and Pints! 

                        Your Duelmaster,

                        The Pob O'Connor

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for LAPUR.  Uncool, JESSIE'S LOVERS.  I mean 
0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  CLAN CROW like really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 5th.  Way to go!  
MVP award for LINNAEUS?  CAVEMEN's proud of him after beating SNOWFLAKE and getting 
12 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SPIN MCDUECAN's match with CLAYBANK cost 
him a loss of 10 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy 
in all LAPUR.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, SULU 
must be pretty gutsy!  He TV challenged the Duelmaster from CLAN CROW.  Does this guy 
have a death wish or what!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome SULU.  Aren't TREKKERS proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  BOHICA was LAPUR's most avoided team.  Is there some award for 
that?  Is there some deep dark secret why STREET WALKERS' been avoiding BOHICA so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  I'm not so sure IRYANA knew all the 
facts when she challenged SOLWYN of MID EARTH.  I saw IRYANA stumbling and dribbling 
at The Warty Toad last week...  Do you think IRYANA knew something before she 
challenged SOLWYN?  She got a win and 25 points.  What will the gal do next?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Owlsy -- Loved the Clan Crow spot.  Very nice touch.  Kudos! -- Ora

Shambling Mound -- I had to come; I had to shudder; I had to die.  Phbbttt! -- Brass
Bander's last words

Pub O'Connor -- You showed me who is boss and I hate you for it!  I hope you rue the
day.... -- Plutonium Punch

Ye has ta make 'im rue it, now, ye Punch.  Kin ye does it? -- Oremaster

Of course he can, Oremaster.  He is our mighty Platinum Punch!  Go get him, you big
hunk! -- Ora

Nero -- I challenged?  Apparently I know not what I am doing.  Yikes! -- A blunt
Steel Sharpener

Divergent -- Well, you showed me!  I challenge and blammo!  I will learn from that!
-- An overblown Steel Squeezer

Visionist -- We will miss you, Big Guy.  We look forward to the day you will be back
full time. -- Ora (for her, Oremaster and the Borgs)

Owlsy -- That pasture pool you mentioned... none for him since mid April, as my old
miner hubby has been laid up with a bad back and subsequent surgery.  I had to drag
him to the hospital.  As to golf, as a whole, I think like you--how can someone get
pleasure with wasting all that time wandering in the woods chasing a little white
ball--especially when I am around to provide fun and games? -- Ora

     It's a mystery for sure!

Me borgs done slumpin' ta yon 0-4!  Hain't seen no opher inna while.  Naye.  Feelin'
mighty low wif me back, 'n me losses, 'n all. -- Oremaster

We Metal Mincer family would like to congratulate Clan Crow for its mighty deserving
Duelmaster and Street Walkers for their big, big point gain.  There are becoming too
many good teams to avoid in Lapur! -- Ora, Oremaster, and the Borgs

Lapur -- Thanks to all who welcomed us back. -- Roadkill and the Street Walkers

Metal Mincers -- We almost said something last turn, but we figured Oremaster forgot
to wear his bifocals when he read the challenge.  But we do appreciate the apology,
it happens to us all at time.  See you on the sands. -- Street Walkers

Sulu -- Congrats on the TV!  (You do know your don't HAVE to use that challenge
against us every turn, right?) -- Capt Antsy Pants

Captain Kirk -- Wait a minute did they actually call me "puny" during my fight
against you?  Maybe they were referring to the amount of skills I learned. -- Capt
Antsy Pants

Windflower -- Nothing personal about the challenge, just curious about you, that's
all. -- Miley Virus

Double McDipper -- That fight was an eye opener, maybe I'm onto something here! --
Jessie Janes (yes, my name is Jessie Janes not James.  You'd think that since I
haven't worn any armor even the Commission would be able to tell my gender.)

Good going with the spotlight, Owsly.  Keep it up. -- Jorja

Steel Sharpener -- May you be afflicted with a rust monster! -- Windflower

Platinum Punch -- Regarding that "acting suprisingly nice for a borg," what happened
to you guys?  The Lead Lambaster that went on an adventure with Redfox lo those many
years ago was a good guy.  Why not the rest of you now?  Is it a generation gap? --
the Cardow Hunters

Wenien -- No, it is NOT.  Turn about is darned annoying. -- Claybank

Qualm -- The probelm (your ouching) is probably in the way you spell your name.  It
should be "balm" rather than "qualm," and then you'd be fine.  I'm sure of it. --
Wintersong

Naowyn -- It was a heavy snowfall, if that helps. -- Snowflake

Miley Virus -- How tedious of you!  How tedious of me, too.  If I could've held on
just a little longer....  Oh, well, good fight. -- Windflower

Calypso -- It would've been a good dance if you hadn't tripped me....  Well, okay, I
tripped you first.  Still. -- Claybank
P.S.  At least the fans loved to watch me make an idiot of myself.  I suppose that's
something, but do NOT ask me what.  I don't think I want to know.

Kicker Murphy -- At least I scorched your boots. -- Grassfire

A Captured Orc.  Um... just what I've always wanted?  But I've heard they eat a lot.
-- Wintersong

Nishibi -- Drat.  As the steward said, I can't believe you did that!  Talk about
embarrassing. -- Snowflake

Anshin -- Who be tired now?  On O' good note ye sure be scarin da flies sirlin
overhead durin da fight. -- Cairraig Amadan

Grassfire -- Me wanted ye ta know me had no intention O'l brutally attemptin ta
kickin ye grassfire oot!  Me think the Arena master be needin ta get his bifocals
fixed. -- Kicker Murphy

Ms Jackson -- Ye gonna be stayin a Ms for O long time if ye cannae bring somethin ta
the table.  Teachen O' skill or two would O been polite. -- Spin McDuecan

Jessie James -- Ye have a pretty deep voice for O Street Walker.  Me though me be
fightin O lady but me dannae be sure now and it be costin me O win ta boot! -- Double
McDipper
