                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm Lost In Pace and I'm on top.  Come at me and you're gonna drop.  Dr. Petter
is my favorite kind of pop.  I have to get a mop to clen up all this slop.  Don't be
acting lake a bunch of cop, like you come sniffing after my crop.  If you do you
surely will get chopped, Jack Rabbit likes to hop.  Good day Chappy!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of IAYE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team PACE'S WILD was unseated 
this week as ALL JACKED UP moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-1-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon LENPROS this time out who 
this turn suffered a fall into 6th position in the wake of a 0-2-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
ALL JACKED UP went 3-1-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  My praise to RED DOG GANG for 
their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving 
of notice!  LUMBER JACK caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it 
skillfully bested PACESON VORHEES and was awarded 13 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, LUMBER JACK put down PACESON VORHEES, causing it to 
lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has LOST IN PACE in 
the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its combat 
skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In IAYE "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
IAYE these days is DELTA BLUES.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  Apparently the stalwarts of LENPROS are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  LEADBELLY take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in IAYE.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My hearty congratulations JACK 
SCAGNETTI, for thy revenge upon TOOTH PACE, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time 
it will know better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the 
arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in IAYE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, 
indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await 
me!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The 
wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hey, Pat, is Jack Knife coming back from the dead anytime soon?  Kudos on the
"resurrection." -- Lenpro

Lost In Pace -- You did it to me again!  I guess I shall have to get out of these
robes and into armor.  Or maybe into lots more practicing and praying? -- Archbishop
Arndt

Lumberjack -- It's that baseball grip you use.  My victory should teach you that one
MUST use an overlap grip.  We will get you in playing form yet. -- Professor Putt

Chevy Pace -- Sorry it took me so long to win. (chuckle) -- Senator Smith

It will be interesting to see the response....
   There once was a feller named Pat.
   Who sang off-key and flat.
   His pal named Pace
   Was wild and base.
   And jacked ole Pat like a rat.

   They fumed and they fought.
   Whilst attention they sought.
   But stardome never caught.
   So life was all for naught.
The Lenpros wait with bated breath.  (Meaning they are napping.  At least, Lenpro
is!)) -- Lenpro

A big congrats and kudos to Lost In Pace, Duelmaster of Iaye. -- Lenpro

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  And Merry Christmas to all. -- Lenpro

Pat Sajak -- Duelmaster once again, nice.  Thanks for the congrats sphiny. --
Pacemaker

Arch Bishop -- You Arndt not treat Tooth Pace that way without trying some pace.  You
probably use Polident like Merle Haggard.  No offense!

Pug -- You were a good cur. -- Lost In Pace

LenPro -- Yes!  That's what I'm talkin' about!  Reading the personals actually made
me smile for once.  In a small, boring arena, the least we can do is make it
entertaining, right?  But please, finish that nice bit of poetry. That's a much
better way to end your personals that Health, Humility, Honor. -- Pat Sajak
P.S.  We Jacks ALWAYS finish what we start.

Jorja -- Nick Nack Pattywhack, give a dog a bone, Lenpro came rolling home. -- Jack
Scagnetti

Pacemaker -- Are you kidding me?!  Cheese!??  You know I hate cheese.  If they are
going to make me change my name to Cheese, the least they could do would be Pepper
Jack.  Man, that really ticks *me off!* -- Cheese
P.S.  I feel like they just waved *me off*, or maybe even laid *me off*, hey, why
don't you break *me off* a piece of that kit kat bar!

     All right, that did it.  You set me off.  Pacemask's full helm and loin cloff,
my horse drinks from a troff, sexy tomb raider Laura Croff, hack and coff, a Lungren
named Dolff, Professor Putt likes to golf, a goonie named Sloff, put hay in a loff,
not a butterfly but a moff, chicken broff, actor Tim Roff, now I'm off! -- Jack
Scagnetti
P.P.S.  A Hitler named Adolff!  Drink Smirnoff.

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

Pacemask -- Damn, I knew that first win was too easy. -- Muley

Blind Lemon -- I hope nobody every throws one of those at me like it was a ball
again.  It tasted AWFUL. -- Speckle

High Points -- My record remains unbroken.  It doesn't matter HOW many people throw
boots at me. -- Midnight Barker
P.S.  Besides, the boots give me something to chew on when not barking.

Politeness doesn't pay.  I knew that. -- Little Bayer

I don't think I'm supposed to be taking meat from Friendly Constables.  I think
that's probably wrong. -- Rupert Mutt
