                             Notes from the arena champ.

Glad to have held the throne.  Three turns in a row must count for something!  At 
least it does for me and it earned me my invite.  I am also quite proud to be the 
first to graduate from my manager's new warriors, those created since he returned to 
the game.  I know it does mean something to him too.  Well, now I guess it is time for 
me to pack and head towards Crysalis where I will very likely retire.  I know the 
throne of Chimlevtal will go the best.  Hasn't it until now?  Heh. 

                                          -- Dr. Sox

                                      SPY REPORT

     My apologies last turn for listing KANEN VILESTAR as a death.  Copy & Paste is a 
wonderful tool, but also a dangerous one.  The death should have been listed as 
PRIVATE PLACE of MILITARY MAYHEM.  It was correctly listed as in the Initiates class.
     This turn was light, as is often the case a day after the New Year started.  31 
warriors from 8 teams fought in 15 fights.  Surprisingly, all 10 styles were 
represented on the sands, but one of them might have been the lone Dark Arena fight.  
Amusingly, there were 30 avoids (from 15 warriors) which equals the number of warriors 
fighting in regular fights.  WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U avoided WHAT GAUL!
     The title fight was very quick.  STRATOS of OTTOBAHN returned from whatever 
pleasures he has been experiencing and made quick work of DR. SOX, spoiling his 
graduation fight (and I heard he was pretty angry at the graduation party, too).  That 
was enough for OTTOBAHN to get 2 awards, but a 4-1 record made them the team on the 
move, too, and by far put together the best team performance for the turn (and one of 
only 3 teams that put a full 5 warriors on the sands).
     Most of the fights were done before the first minute was over, so thus turn I'll 
recognize the longer fights.  OROKE STONEMAGUS and YETI had the longest fight of the 
turn, going into the 3rd minute.  OROKE couldn't put down YETI (I wouldn't want to 
meet a yeti, let alone try and put it down) but was the most popular warrior for 
trying.
     The second oldest active warrior, RYO, was able to beat WAVES TOO BIG in 2 
minutes.  Both warriors made the popular lists.
     Every warrior that fought (excepting the Dark Arena fight) had experience, but 
two warriors with only a single fight of experience were involved in the other two 2 
minute fights.  Both warriors had lost their first fight.  GREAT ESCAPE lost his 
second fight against UMBRELLA.  I know from experience that an umbrella in the 
right/wrong hands is deadly!  UMBRELLA was the second most popular warrior and GREAT 
ESCAPE made the unpopular lists.
     KANEN VILESTAR only had one arena fight previously, but is coming back from the 
dead after TVing Dead Initiates.  That means technically, KANEN had at least 11 FE 
coming into this turn.  That was plenty to beat FULLIAUTOMATIX in 2 minutes.  The 
opposite happened in this fight, with the loser making the popularity list and the 
winner the unpopular list.
     4 up challenges, no deaths or bloodfeuds.  This place is just TOO nice for me.  
Makes me want to close up shop and retire.  But I need the job, so I guess I won't do 
that just yet!
