                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings all,

Glad to be here, even though it won't last long as I will take a few weeks off to 
enjoy my stay in Chimlevtal a little longer...  It was close against Arson last turn, 
but that made the win even nicer.  Good luck to you this turn, no doubt the throne 
will be fiercely contested again.

                                          -- BRUTALIX

                                      SPY REPORT

     A tourney happened since the last turn.  As is usually the case, our arena did 
not send very many.  But since it is one of the bigger events of gladiatorial combat, 
I feel compelled to report on our results.  The good news:  3 teams sent warriors.  
DEEDERS BULLIES sent 3, NUMBERS GAME and JUST DESSERTS sent 2 each.  All total, our 
warriors went 12-18-0-1.  Not very pretty.  The best of the bunch was FROG-EYE SALAD, 
who went 4-3.  Some of you (and you know who you are) need to step it up (really, you 
didn't even send a single warrior from 31?!?).  Get your butts in gear and start 
representing Chimlevtal!  Bring some success (if not glory) to our great arena so that 
people will start coming back to see what the excitement is about!!!  I will commend 
the three managers who did represent us and I can only hope that next time, you have 
days to remember!  One last note:  All Chimlevtal's warriors were in Rookies, 
Apprentices, and Initiates.
     Only one team had a turn which is worth writing about.  The rest of you all had 
mediocre turns at best (and there were many less than that best).  But La Guillotine's 
crew...  4-0 for the turn, 12-0 for the last three turns, and 4 awards.  The 4 awards 
seems especially insulting to me because he'll only get credit for 2 of them.  When 
someone has a turn like that and everyone else has crummy turns, we should just 
commandeer one of the awards to the team that did so well!  Then WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U 
would get that ever coveted 5 awards!
     I also liked LG's move at the top!  BRUTALIX sits out, causing all those non 
existent challenges by challenger champs that are sitting out of the action to be 
completely wasted, then takes the throne and earns his invite.  The only piece missing 
was the downchallenge from FHTAGN to one of the other puds sitting in the Chumps 
class.  Now THAT would have been a sight to behold!
     There were 22 avoids by 11 warriors.  That is two each.  I guess some of you know 
how to use the avoids (the down challenge being a mostly lost art).  AVENGERS and THE 
OUTLAWS 4 each received 4 avoids (the most).  The team avoiding the most?!?  Not 
shockingly, the manager who uses the most of the tools available will often be the 
most successful.  WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U sent 3 avoids to those two teams.
     28 total warriors fought representing 7 teams.  Only 8 styles were to be found on 
the sands, with Pikers and Lungers not seeing any action.  I'm sure most of you 
managers missed the Chimlevtal Times article saying how over the last 30 years, lunger 
has consistently been one of the best styles for success.  Or maybe you are all 
running shell corporations here in Chimlevtal for tax write offs. Wouldn't shock me!  
I know how the world works!!!  And poor me stuck here with your cast offs.
     As good as LG has been recently, his precious 3-0 LITTER BLASTER is heading for 
trouble.  3-0 with 40 recognition is a good way to get killed by some old dinosaur 
(and we've got plenty of those to choose from!!!) DAMEON DARKHEART apparently wanted 
to win points (or maybe his low intellect finally got it - DCing works) with me by 
sending a 9 point downchallenge from OROKE STONEMAGUS to ADIOS AMIGO.  A DC to a big 
FE warrior!  Fishing for skills AND wins?!?  I love it!
     I will close by noting that Lady Smith appears to also be 'seeing the light.' She 
has realized the Smithy is a deadbeat.  If she had only listened to EVERYONE around 
her for the last few years, she could have come to her senses a long time ago, not 
invested so much into a relationship she really didn't want to be in, and maybe we 
wouldn't have had to listen to Smithy's drivel!!!  I know the Consortium would not 
have let this go on but for Lady Smith's smooth management of politics amongst the 
Consortium leaders.  Amazing what a Lady who knows how to use her assets can achieve 
in the world!  I certainly know all about such things!!!!

All, it must be the Christmas season as Smithy was apparently feeling quite giving.  
Is 0-3-0-2 really an arena turn?  0-3-02!  I am thinking that Smithy is, perhaps, a 
Consortium embarrassment at the moment.  0-3-0-2?!  And I am married to the guy? --
