                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am ashamed to have been a part of the bloodbath we experience last turn.  But
when you play with sharp toys, accidents happen.
     Seaweed fact of the day: Seaweed has been used for centuries as fertilizer.  It
is especially effective on light sandy soils.  While I may not be universally
effective as a fertilizer, there are clear benefits with the right crop and
situation.

-- Seaweed

                                      SPY REPORT

     Turnout was light this turn.  Either the bloodbath of last turn or the
tournament was the most likely culprit.  In total, we saw 19 fights (including one
Dark Arena) with 35 warriors representing 8 teams.  Both bloodfeuds were successful
and 5 of the remaining 16 fights were challenges.
     Since no team had a memorable performance, good or bad, the most interesting
thing to report was THE INAUDIBLE's challenge of LITTER.  Normally a striker beating
up a basher isn't newsworthy, but when the striker kills that fine young basher and
gathers his 3rd career kill in 13 wins, it is definitely something to report!
Perhaps next turn we'll see a fight to the death for the throne as both our
duelmaster SEAWEED (who beat a Kung-Fu Master to retain the throne) and THE INAUDIBLE
appear to be killing machines.  THE INAUDIBLE took over the career popularity award
from the inactive RAPTOR.
     PUMPKIN ROLL received a favorable matchup with C++ and continues to roll through
the rankings undefeated.  6-0 with only 51 recognition.  How far can our sweet
dessert go?
     And one other fight ended in death.  SOJUTSU killed TOKVY SWORDMAGE.  If this
continues, the dead list will exceed the living list!  Go Chimlevtal!  Keep up the
great work!
     THE CANUCKS were the most avoided team, receiving 7 of the 37 avoids.  Who
wasted the most avoids on a team that didn't fight?  GHOSTWALKERS 3.
     CASPER was reported as the most challenged warrior, but I suspect it was a lack
of challenges that made it so.  LIPOR was the the one that was got his challenge
through, winning in 2.
     Next turn I'll report on the tourney.  Hopefully we have great success to report
from our results (even a few kills would be enough to satisfy me!).

Assur -- You dog! Congrats on Seaweed as your champion Duelmaster, and congrats, too,
for your topnotch 3-Turn Record.  You think you own this arena? -- Smithy
(interpreted by Useful Weapons Publicist Lady Smith)

Casper -- Ha, ha!  And another set of Ha Has!  You challenged because you squeaked
out a win over me before?  You dimwit!  Well, for you, that is.  For me, the easy win
was like an ice cream sundae. -- Wet Noodle, Useful Weapon

Ryo of Avengers -- Who is the avenger now?  Rope was a fine and friendly teammate and
you should not have killed him.  Grrr.  I like blood feuds as I get to trash someone.
-- Trash Can, Useful Weapon

COBOL -- In answer to your question, do you know where I can buy any Viagra cheap?
Lots of it? -- Wet Noodle, Useful Weapons

Assur -- Sure I know seaweed.  It is slimy spinach, isn't it?  Actually, they teach
us it is a macroscopic, multicellular, marine algae. -- A UCLA student Phycologist
P.S.  I understood the spinach and the algae part and I dated a Marine once.

Hopin' y'all done reel bad in yer Mailey thang.  Yup. -- Smithy, Useful Weapons

The warriors of Language Barrier pour our libations on the ground for dead homey,
Stratos.  You gave your all in the Title Match.  Respect.

Sojutsu -- Interesting fight.  We shall have to meet again. --Pascal

Tokvy Swordmage -- Did you know, your name spelled backwards is still
incomprehensible to me? -- COBOL

     Sneaky of him.

Bam-Bam -- Generally, one uses an off-hand shield to defend themselves with.  Not
you, apparently. -- C++

Lipor -- This fight game may not be for me. -- Eiffel

Flash -- Much better!  Now let's see if I have an antidote for your can opener. --
BASIC

Useful Weapons -- "Silly is as silly does..."  My understanding is, the only silly
question is the one that does not get asked. -- Spectre

Assur -- That answered my question very nicely.  As always, your insight into my
question was most useful.  Thanks. -- Spectre

Smithy -- I'm not sure I can be considered a true Delarquan.  Definitely close, but
my pacifist nature and desire to not kill warriors definitely sets me apart from many
other Delarquans.  Sadly my kill ratio here in Chimlevtal is higher than I'd like it.
-- Assur

Raptor -- I thought dinosaurs were dead when they fell in the tar, not the other way
around.  Saddened by the loss of his most promising warrior here. -- Assur

Arnage -- Most pleasing to give you your first loss.  Next time you'll know to dress
warmer. -- Mr. Freeze

Pumpkin Roll -- Meanwhile I simply continue to be a mark on your quest to go 20-0. --
