                             Notes from the arena champ.

YES!!!  That's it for me!  I took a shot at Roland 'cause I wanted the quick invite.
He got it for me and I am out of here.

Not bad for an untalented hoser, eh?  My teammates keep laughing at me, but I kept
winning.  It just goes to show--you don't have to be good, just lucky!

So what is the state of the union around here?  Things look pretty good.  Anguish
seems to be really coming around and fighting well.  Frenzy is very good and is
holding out for the tournament.  Same with Defiance.  I will be off to the Isle and
there will be a replacement fighter on the sands for me next turn.  I think that the
boss said that Wrath gets a night fight.  Angels of Pain are in great shape for a
while to come.

How about at the top of the ranks here in Arvat?  I am not challenging or avoiding
this turn, so it's a free for all to see who gets the title.  I'm guessing a
challenge from Psycotron--though he was not a match for me the last time we fought.
Demetren joins me on the Isle, and he's probably the worst possible challenge for me.
But if he wants the honor, he is welcome to it.  Heron doesn't challenge, so that's
out.  Good luck, fellows, whoever it is!

I am off to the Isle and a nice early retirement!

Adios!

Rage

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARVAT once again!  Biff!  Pow!  ARVAT watched with glee as 
ANGELS OF PAIN got knocked off top spot by DEVIL ADVOCATES!  Phhbltt!  Too much 
drinking and too little dodging gave LUROCIAN GUARD a 2-3-0!  I got a good laugh out 
of it!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  CAESAR'S THUGS is now ranked 7th with a 3-2-1 turn.  Some people 
say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  
Well BARN OF HORRORS moved up 2, to 6th.  What's with GELEN?  He actually beat 
NOTORIOUS' PSYCHOTRON, and walked away with 29 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at RILL'S GCSC2 while they watched GELEN clobber PSYCHOTRON.  He lost 23 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ROLAND was reminded on 
the sands why RAGE is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, CALL THE PRIEST!  In 
my day, no team with a 193-104-9 would scare me off!  What's the problem, SARATOGA 
GLORY?  What do people see in HERON?  His 14-33-0?  FISHERMAN'S WHARF ain't talkin', 
but he's got 79 points.  CYRUS expects the easy win by going 17 points down.  DAISY 
will find this a hard lesson!  Just who can CYRUS beat?  I mean, the last matchup 
with lesser-ranked DAISY shoulda been a piece of cake!  Taunt your opponent VELMA!  
That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 16 points!)  LUCIUS 
should have an easy win.  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, LUCIUS!  
He can't set himself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see VELMA lose.   
     Warriors of ARVAT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ARVAT is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Arvat Arena Assemblage -- Took longer than I expected, but my AAAAUUGH HAMMERZ stable
has finally arrived as promised a few months ago!  There are two, maybe three
prospective ADM gladiators who hold my interest here!  My plan is to remain active
until they either graduate or Die!  As long as their replacements are worth running
this stable shall remain active based upon Financial Feasibility! -- Hammer/Minister
of War

Erudite Ed -- Please Reveal the list of Managers so I can get acquainted with who is
running what stable here!  Thank You! -- Hammer/Minister of War

Arvat Arena Assemblage -- Having Finally Graduated an Aimer after 10+ years I am now
turning my attention to running a few new stables to possibly send a few qualified
new graduates to the Proposed New No Tourney ADM Arena!  Whether or Not I choose to
write any Spots here will be determined from cycle to cycle! -- Hammer/Minister of
War

Our turn envelope burst open in the post office (or so I'm told, I wasn't there), and
a lot of turns fell out.  Some--not all--of the fights and other pages showed up at
the guildhouse about five days later.  If there's something missing from our
personals, blame it on the post office, okay?  We're doing our best here. -- Jorja,
Fisherman's Wharf

Ah, okay, in THIS arena, the fights I have all begin with the audience rising, like a
batch of bread dough or something.  Interesting.  In Iaye, I think it was, the fights
all began with the audience shutting up (they were talking a lot).  In yet a third
arena, the fights all began with the audience transferring their attention to the
warriors away from something so riveting that they turned back again and again
between fights.  Dunno what it was that the second audience was talking about, or the
third one watching.  Do you suppose THIS one is rising because it's napping between
fights?  Inquiring Minds, etc.

Personal Legend -- That was well done.  You knew that, right?  Well, it was. --
Geroge Roft

Ted Ickens -- Well, Teddy boy, I have no idea whether you did in fact make a career
error (I know I did), but I can tell you know that you're probably not suited to
being a stilt fisherman.  You lack a defense against stones falling from the sky, and
this is critical for stilt fishermen.  Very dangerous, stones falling from the sky.
-- Heron

Belle Zeybul -- Short, gorgeous, and really nasty.  NOT my kind of woman. -- Sarlow
P.S.  What can I say, I like 'em tall.
P.P.S.  But I might make an exception in your case, hmm?  It shows something or other
the way you kept coming back to visit me while I was recuperating.

Shea Tann -- Well, you seem to have picked and pickled my peppers.  Sort of thing
elves do, I suppose.  Drat. -- Peter Piquin

Daisy -- Where'd that bicycle come from?  You can't do that there here! -- Fillis
Bouy
P.S.  But...hmm.  We might be able to convert parts of it to operate a pedal-paddle
boat, maybe give tours around the harbor, up into the delta.  Have to watch out for
the areas where there, ah, violent hazards, but other than that, almost half the year
the delta is quite...scenic.

Our congratulations to Rage and Demetren.  Watch out for the road bandits on the way
to the Isle. -- Fisherman's Wharf

We want to thank you all for providing work for the Dark Arena crew this week.
People were getting a little lazy, thinking they'd never need to get out on the sands
and so on.  Much better to have work to do; it gives the team purpose. --
