                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Arvat!

I, Bill Berith, have returned as your Duelmaster.  Unfortunately the arranged title
battle with Sextus did not go off as planned.  Certainly the fight itself was fine.
I leapt forward and struck the first blow, hitting the noble Roman in the arm.  The
wound was deep and clearly crippling, so the Arenamaster stopped the fight and Sextus
was carried off to the infirmary.

Imagine my surprise when some hours later after my sauna and massage, I heard that I
was being credited with a kill.  Sextus had been dropped several times on his way to
the hospital and bled out.  He was dead.  Though the wrath of the Romans is upon the
clumsy hospital staff and not me, I still feel somewhat responsible.  Sextus was a
powerful fighter and skillful opponent.  He will be missed.

Let there be a moment of silence in his honor at the noon hour every day this week to
celebrate his life and untimely death.

There is some additional news for our extended stable.  The Primus team, which has
included many Devil Advocates in its numbers, has finally achieved 2,000 wins.  Quite
the achievement.  Now all we have to do is reach our 1,000 win goal here and we will
have the triple:  1,000 wins in basic, standard ADM, and Primus.  That has been a
goal of the boss for some time, I hear.  Perhaps there will be a great
celebration....

Until next time, Arvat, may you be stout of heart and strong of arm!

Bill Berith

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARVAT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, BARN OF HORRORS, since 
RILL'S GCSC2 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for ANGELS OF PAIN, whose 
0-1-0 this turn dropped them by 8 into 21st.  Ha!  BIG LAKE NOMADS turned their 2-3-1 
turn into a 8th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, 
RILL'S GCSC2, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see PSYCHOTRON win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, PSYCHOTRON beat GELEN and GELEN lost 28 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, ARVAT may be getting bland, as BILL BERITH stays 
top dog in the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARVAT's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
NOTORIOUS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DEVIL ADVOCATES.  Ha ha ha ha!  
SHAI ALYT was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to HOLD of ERRATA 
for challenging up by 18 to GEROGE ROFT.  HOLD won to get 29 points of recognition.  
And we have LARS in a challenge, going down 13 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I 
thought LARS showed great skill and promise when he subdued THE ORPHAN MAKER.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Gee, SARATOGA GLORY, ain't it past due for sending 
PERSONAL LEGEND Dark Arena?  What took ol' '12-5-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  
Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next guy, but hey SARATOGA GLORY, whyja 
send PERSONAL LEGEND to the Dark Arena, look at his record, huh?  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

All -- Sorry that I have been mute as of late.  It always seems like once or twice a
year real world issues pop and I end up being incommunicado for a month or so.
Hopefully things have finally settled down for me to focus on DM a little more. --
Mad Max

Thunder Road -- The boss was talking about doing a mini-PR tourney between me Mesharr
and Karlrak to see who could lay claim as Arvat's top PR.  I'm glad that you decided
to throw your hat into the ring.  If you'd like to do a best 2 out of 3 or even 4 out
of 7 let me know. -- Demonic Egg

Karlrak -- <UGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!>  Me hit you!  <NNNNGUGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!>  You fall
down!!!!!  <MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNGGGGGGG>  Me win! -- Frankenrooster

Bubba -- When you dodged my crit I thought I was going to be in trouble.  Fortunately
for me that was not the case. -- Cannibalistic Cow

Welcome to Errata, Big Lake Nomads and Aaaauugh Hammerz.  We hope you all enjoy a
long and prosperous stay.  Unless you face my warriors, of course. -- Mad Max mgr.
Barn of Horrors

Caesar -- That's right, baby.  I am a Pizza eating machine!!!!  Now bring me 5 large
Pepe's pizzas with extra cheese.  Mad Max has spoken!!!!!

Caesar -- I was sorry to see the loss of Sextus.  A shrine of him at the Temple of
Caesar should be erected.  Good luck in your bloodfeud attempt. -- Mad Max

Bill Berith -- Congrats on taking the title. -- Mad Max

All -- I am also sorry that we have been out of commission lately.  I needed to do
some house cleaning and form a little bit better of a plan.  We should have
everything ironed out and ready to go for a while now. -- the Trainer mgr. Saratoga
Glory

Geroge Roft -- I would ask that we have another go at it but alas the boss has stated
that it is my time to fight at night.  He did say that if I win that it will be my
last time to fight at night.  If I lose then, fare thee well.  I have enjoyed our
duels. -- Personal Trainer

Arvat -- If we keep this up we may replace Zukal as the arena of death. 5 kills!!!!
You all are a bloodthirsty bunch....  Just the way I like it. -- the Trainer

Bubba -- Nope, that was me you hit.  We'll have to try it again, very soon. -- Mystic
Mirage

Den -- Welcome to Arvat.  I believe I have heard of you in the past but I do not
recall if we have crossed swords or not.  Regardless, Welcome to Arvat.  If we have
not crossed swords before I am sure we will soon. -- Mad Max

Caesar -- I have changed the names of all Little Caesar's to Big Mad Max Hands Pizza
Palace.  I hope that clears things up. -- Mad Max

Hammer -- We would hate to see you go, but if that's your choice, then fine.  Who

would not want to stay here?  Where else could you find such dismal replacement
fighters?  Sorry about Backwater Hammer.  See what happens when a brother and sister
have offspring? -- Caesar

Desperate Noble -- Are you on a budget or something?  Also, why so quiet?  We miss
you! -- Caesar

Dark One -- I really hate those infirmary kills....  May Sextus rest in pieces.
Another Arvat pud bites the dust.  "Fredo, you're my older brother, and I love you.
But don't ever take sides with anyone against the family again.  Ever." -- Caesar

Old Man -- Has The Consortium bailed on our fair city?  For a guy with unlimited
funding, you should be running a full stable here. -- Caesar

Beware worthless fodder of Arvat!  Caesar's killers are out in full force on the
sands!  Daisy didn't know, but the rest of you do!  No quarter will be given!  It is
the Will of Caesar!  Caesar has Spoken!

Den -- Yep, you do smell me around here.  Smells good huh? -- Rillion

Rage -- Yeah, good riddance to you.  I like matching up against others better. --
Roland

Hey, I'm managed to submit strategies and personal ads this turn.  What a shock!  I
guess finally realizing I had a warrior graduate and I needed to submit a replacement
rollup had something to do with it. -- Rillion

Hear me now, both warlords and weaklings!  The Master of Blades has chosen to open a
training camp in this fair city of Arvat.  Let it be known that Vindictus arrives
this turn, and the rumbling thunder of his Stormblades will echo across the sands!

Rillion -- Could you take it easy on me?  I'm sure you love all the wins but man my
record versus you is taking a beating.  Maybe I should DA all these puds and start at
the bottom again. :) -- TGG

Welcome to all new teams and I hope you'll stay around for awhile. -- TGG

Den -- Anytime you would like to fight against my guys just put there number in that
challenge box.  I'm sure many of your guys' numbers will be in mine. -- TGG

Hammer -- Don't listen to that old coot Den.  We enjoy having you around. -- TGG

Den -- You do realize this is the home arena for our alliance.  We have about 9 teams
here I think.  Might want to be careful running off at the mouth too much or you
might find yourself at the receiving end of a lot of bad challenges for you. -- TGG

Maud'Dib -- I had an aunt named Maud.  She was fishing in the main channel one foggy
morning and got run down by a barge. -- Heron
P.S.  Damn, I didn't realize at first that I'd killed you.  That's what I get for
skimming the fights.  Look, I wasn't really trying to recreate my aunt's accident.
At least, maybe it wasn't an accident, but I don't suppose YOU had anything to do
with.  If your teammates want to bloodfeud, I'll be here.

Ted Ickens -- No, and I don't like you any more than I like hospitals.  You have damp
hands. -- Sarlow

Evil Fantasies -- Finest KIND!  And trust an elf to know them all. -- Fillis Bouy

The Orphan Maker -- I get so tired of people with over-long names.  They don't fit
the form and I have to actually WORK to fit 'em in. -- Peter Piquin

Larry -- Listen, if orcs ever made golems, we'd make one that would TAKE YOU APART.
-- Geroge Roft

The Gambler -- (recoiling in horror)  Not the persimmons! -- Jorja
