                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Whew, I thought for a while that I got the throne by losing to a standby, but it 
came out all right in the end.  I won.  At least our Khalhums Dwarf IS a dwarf, and 
he might even be from Khalhums.  I've heard that GENUNINE Khalhums Dwarves are 
getting rare.  Some so-called Khalhums Dwarves even have glued on beards!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, IAYE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? 
Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, THE WARLOCKS, since GAMEHENDGE took 
top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TRIPLE-X win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
TRIPLE-X beat THE RIVER and THE RIVER lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Looks like IAYE has some guts at least, FREEDA the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  JET'E challenged IAYE's Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as JET'E takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  THE BRIGADE was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was LOVE LETTERS.  Ha 
ha ha ha!  I guess I can give a little credit to STINGER of RANDOM for challenging up 
by 19 to DR. ROSENZWEIG.  STINGER lost to get 78 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the IAYE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as comfortable 
to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I 
won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the 
kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

So I guess Hal chose not to publish our confirmed ads last turn?  I wonder if it was 
something we said? -- Lenpro

     With Hal, who knows? -- Temp Ed.

Tela, good riddance!  You are way too much for me! -- Admiral Iso

Sierra, there was nothing "lucky" about that planned win.  Not at all. -- Dr. 
Rosenzweig

Walt Weiss, man, I am not in your league in either experience or skills.  Salute. --
Paratoms (having been really MUGged!)

Good luck to all in St Louis. -- Lenpro et al

Ijaz -- Let me guess, now, I can figure it out....  Your manager named you by drawing 
letters out of a hat, yes? -- Bigfoots

Jet'e -- Your name looks familiar to my manager, but *I* haven't seen you around 
before.  Have I?  You're tourney prepping, I presume? -- Gissanniah

Candyman -- Ooooh, chocolate. -- Rishteke

H. Hatrack -- If the arenamaster hadn't stopped me, I would have turned that fight 
around and won!  Don't laugh, I would!  I know it. -- Perrojo, master of delusions

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
