                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wooooooooo!  It's good to be on top!  Any of youin's who wan to take a stab at
me, go ahead, Pat Sajak has this thing about not seeing his name in the spy report as
avoiding people.  He's recruited an old friend to come join the festivities here in
Iaye, and he can drink me under the tabel any day.  So everyone give a warm welcome
to the Pacemaker, manager of Pace's Wild.  Now let's get this pary started right...
The first 10 shots are on the champ, the next 10 on the slowest to finish them! 

                            Jack Daniels

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in IAYE this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, CRACKER JACK fought STRIPE and 
gained 18 points and contributed to ALL JACKED UP's 2-3-0.  PACE GHOST has lost to 
SULTRY WALK, falling 7 points, while helping make PACE'S WILD a 2-2-1 turn.  HERR 
HAGEDORN challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone ALL 
JACKED UP's warrior.  And not without some honor, HERR HAGEDORN now claims the title 
and throne of Duelmaster of IAYE.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the 
top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dragon's Blood Inn until they 
win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  RESCUE RANGERS II has cause to stand tall, as they were 
IAYE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding RESCUE RANGERS II more than any other team we find LENPROS.  IAYE, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
MOONDOG from RED DOG GANG was IAYE's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that IAYE has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in IAYE, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Nota Butterfly -- I'll just bet you are a wasp or a hornet or something.  It just
isn't right that you would sting an Archbishop like that!  Naughty, naughty. --

Pug -- Horse?  Horse!  You aren't calling me horse-faced, are you?! -- Duchess Dobbin

said "hi."  (And good luck.) -- Lenpro

Congrats to Duelmaster Jack Daniels, a fine warrior and a fine drink. -- Lenpro

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Iaye Forever. -- Lenpro

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --

All -- It's been twelve years since I've been in this game.  Be sure not to slack
because I'm on the attack. -- Pacemaker

Pat Sajak -- Let's spin the wheel.  I would like to buy a vowel. -- Pacemaker

Lenpro -- So you're saying your favorite style is a plunger?  Why?  I don't think
I've ever seen you run one.  I would've thought a wall of steel or total parry.  I've
nemver run any of the parry pukes except the rippers.  They're definately my
favorite.  So versitale. -- Pat Sajak

Madwand -- I hate to see you leave, this arena sure needs you.  Ahhh...the internet,
I guess bein locked up for years kinda throws a wrench in you technological skills.
Cell phones and computers are way more advanced than I remember.  I can't figure out
these forums. -- Pat Sajak

Pacemaker -- What up, Koontz?!  If I go back to the pen you better keep playin.  We
can communicate like this and they'll never know.  Those coons we seen in mudfork was
a freakin omen!  Wooooooooo! -- Pat Sajak

Emerica -- Ah... I could suggest that we are in the same line of work?  You rescue
rangers, I rescue charming idiot children who stray into the middle of busy streets.
We should become a team, not adversaries. -- Moondog

Jack Daniels -- Tastes bad. -- Little Rosie

Jack Hammer -- You sank!  You aren't supposed to do that, you're supposed to float,
and I can come swimming out and fetch you back.  Do it RIGHT next time. -- Splash

Jack the Ripper -- You smell... crazy.  I don't like that.  I don't want to be near
you any. -- Stripe

Queen -- You should stay home and mind your pups. -- Pug

Duchess Dobbin -- Well, for a good bone and a rug in a warm corner, I'm prepared to
overlook things like royalty. -- Pug

Pat Sajak -- I dunno which one you're thinking of, but a lot of stuff just came to a
premature stop when I got sick in November and December.  A website with a newsletter
archives is in the planning stages, however, and as soon as it gets together, I
expect it to be announced in all the newsletters. -- Jorja

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Red Dog Gang
