                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I was ready for you this time, Chaldea.  No sneaky, half-elven GUY (and we all
know about half-elves!) is going to fake me out twice.

                                    Loden Norvis

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
CHIMLEVTAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MIDDLE WAY 7, since 
DARQUE FORCES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see EDEN win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, CAPTURED ORC beat MANDIN ORLE and MANDIN ORLE lost 12 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as CHALDEA 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  PIRATES 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 DARQUE FORCES.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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

Jack Sparrow -- Huh, just LIKE a pirate!  You just nipped in and stole the win I had
my eye on.  I guess this means I'll have to practice more, doesn't it? -- Mandin Orle

Club-Foot Cody -- Damn, I was doing FINE untill you up and clubbed me with your foot.
That totally freaked me out, and it's a well-known fact that you can't defend
yourself properly when totally freaked out. -- Lumus Nelp

Well!  A Dangerous Criminal surrenders to me--that feels really good.  I like it.
Maybe I'll become a city guard or something. -- Ombert Qurl

Xandar -- And you're a guy, too.  Are there NO exotic women around here? -- Oswell
Quirn

Master Darque -- Then again, perhaps you should NOT start another war.  The last one
kept this place so unpleasant in tone that I avoided it as much as I could.  No
telling if any other players had the same reaction, of course.  Let's put our heads
together and see if we can come up with something more positive to draw in players
old and new. -- Jorja

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
