                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Arvat!

Looks like I am still here!  After another fight with a Roman--this time Servius--I
have managed to attain victory and also my all important 14th win.  Once I reach 20
fights, I am ready to depart for the Isle, provided I live that long.

The fight with Servius was a solid one.  I swung, he got hit.  Oddly, I was much more
bloodthirsty in this fight, though not by intent, and Servius lived, whereas I killed
his compatriot last week when I was trying to NOT achieve a kill.  The Fates work in
mysterious ways, I must say.  Actually I'm pretty mellow in random matchups and on my
challenges, whereas my usual IF CHALLENGED strat is extra bloodthirsty....  That's
the usual policy with my guildmates, so challenge at your own risk....

The city was strangely quiet this week.  True, there is still construction going on
as the golf course is built and I saw some new sites going up--a new inn and a
casino, as far as I can tell, but the streets were even more empty than usual.  I
suppose all the casual day labor is out working for once. At least it was easier
getting around as I was shopping for new weapons and armor.  The boss springs for new
gigs if any of us hold the title for three turns in a row.  If I hit five I get a
cash award....  So stay out of my way, you guys.  I'm on a rampage!

On a final note--good luck in the tournament, Arvat!  I am not going, but many of my
guildmates are!  With luck we will pull down an award or two!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARVAT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave CAESAR'S THUGS a 0-0-0!  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!  NOTORIOUS is now ranked 7th with a 4-1-0 turn.  DEVIL ADVOCATES showed 
ARVAT what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-1-0.  
Welcome to ARVAT, I HOPE I AM!  We need more teams who can get a 2-1-0 their first 
time out!  What's with FILLIS BOUY?  She actually beat LUROCIAN GUARD's LARRY, and 
walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at FISHERMAN'S WHARF 
while they watched PETER PIQUIN clobber FRANKENROOSTER.  He lost 7 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the Duelmaster challenged 
FISHERMAN'S WHARF's HERON?  That sort of initiative is how he got where he is now.  
Try as he might, HERON wasn't good enough at persuading BILL BERITH to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  ARVAT 
thinks RILL'S GCSC2 and their 109-98-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, 
give up...  In my day, no team with a 107-95-2 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, DEVIL ADVOCATES?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, MAXIMUS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  THE 
ORPHAN MAKER of BIG LAKE NOMADS knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged TED ICKENS of 
DEVIL ADVOCATES who is up by 25.  Now was this a wise move?  THE ORPHAN MAKER perhaps 
got his just desserts, seeing as he defeated TED ICKENS and ended up with 90 
recognition points.   
     Warriors of ARVAT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  LORIE looked pretty 
sick and surprised when she learned LUROCIAN GUARD is sending her to the Dark Arena!  
Whadd'she expect with a 10-13-0?  BRUTUS larned his lesson (BLUNDERER HAMMER taught 
it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any AAAAUUGH HAMMERZ members 
with the same gusto.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Peter Piquin -- You left me bleeding, weaponless and defeated....  We will just HAVE
to do it again and soon. -- Demonic Egg

Sarlow -- <UUUNNNNNNGHHHHH!!!!!> Me win!  <SNARL!, DROOL!, DROOL!> Me look you up
again soon. <RAWLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!> -- Frankenrooster

Maximus -- That darn arena master stopped me from gnawing on your arm.  I thought
that was my right!  I win and I get to eat the loser.  Oh well.  I have to say that I
will be happy when this darned Bloodfeud is over. -- Cannibalistic Cow

Master of Blades/Stormblades -- Welcome to Arvat.  Sorry to see that you had a rough
first turn.  Stick with it though. -- Mad Max, mgr. Barn of Horrors

Eastern Horde -- Is that Mr. Mojo that I see?!?!?!  WOW!  It has been years!  Welcome
back.  I hope you have a long stay here in our fine city. -- Mad Max mgr. Barn of
Horrors

Destitute Noble -- Do you want for Thunder Road to get in on the mini PR tourney?
Just let me know. -- Mad Max

All -- I am hopeful that Undead Duck & Werebunny will finally be able to make their
Arvat debuts this turn.  We'll see how they have done after the tourney.  Both are
eager to test their mettle on the sands of our fine city. -- Mad Max 

Caesar -- We petitioned the City Council to erect a shrine in the memory of Sextus
for all of those that the infirmary allows to die or directly contributes to their
deaths.  We are still awaiting word.  I am hopeful that we can have something
finalized by the end of the year. -- Mad Max

Destitute Noble -- I certainly hope you bring back those losers on Call the Priest.
Arvat just isn't the same without them around and my guys kicking their tails. -- Mad
Max

Black Orc -- Thanks for nothing. -- the Ghost of Personal Legend

Well Personal Legend has passed on.  I had hoped that fighting at night would be just
the kick in the tail that he needed to prove himself but alas that was not to be.
For those that may have been interested Personal Legend was 15(1)-17(1)-13-5-21(1)-9-
10(3) Trem/Good.  I have never been an expert at scum and while PL was not a very
good example of scum as he had no parry he could certainly take punishment.  I just

get tired of endless fights of nothing but standing around.  While my warriors may
not always win they usually make it entertaining.  Despite my sending of Personal
Legend to the Dark Arena I shall miss him. -- the Trainer mgr. of Saratoga Glory

Brutus -- Sorry for the rough treatment but I'm still a little unhappy that my show
got cancelled all of those years ago.  I am hopeful for a Movie though. -- Spooky
Mulder

Glamorous Hammer -- I blame that loss on my weapon selection.  I will be looking you
up again in the near future. -- Mountain General

Huntress -- Yet another opponent falls to my ability to bedazzle and bewilder my
opponents.  We can do it again if you would like.  Just let me know. -- Mystic Mirage

Octavianus -- Well, it must say something about you when as soon as I come off of the
sands after my loss to you that the boss pulls me aside and says, "It's time to fight
at night, pal."  I fully blame you for this. -- First Samurai

Octavianus -- Don't blame yourself for me sending First Samurai into the Dark Arena.
He was more of an experiment and it just hasn't been working out.  It was time to cut
my losses and move on. -- the Trainer

Good luck to everyone at the face to face.  I would like to thank the Sand Man in
advance for his proxying my warriors to all of those TCs. -- the Trainer

UGGH!!  Do you guys at the Barn of Horrors have any idea HOW bad cow pies from a
meat-eating, cannibalistic cow SMELL when they are left steaming on the sands?
Gross!  I almost stepped in one! -- Bill Berith

Caesar -- Yeah.  Tell me about the infirmary kills.  I've racked up a few losses
myself over the years.  Sorry again. -- the Dark One

RUMOR of the WEEK -- We have seen both a Hairy and Smelly Coolie sent to Dark Arena
over the past few weeks.  If we see a Naked Coolie also go to the Dark Arena, the
rumor is that the Rollup Gods will allow all managers to create DYO warriors the
following week....

Max -- I echo your sentiments form last turn, I too have been far too silent
recently.  As you know many appreciate that! -- Noble

Caesar -- Ditto above!  And...yes, a budget! -- Noble

Bill Berith -- I'm gonna try and mess up that pretty record, and take some of those
recognition points. -- Psychotron

Den -- I guess my two challenges last turn answered your question as did your one
against me.  So 2-1 after round 1. -- TGG

Orphan Maker -- So fighting like that, how do you make orphans?  Oooh, when you die
in the arena your kids will be orphans so that must be it.  You're an orphan maker
cuz you suck as a fighter and will die soon.  Now I get it. -- Lars

The Enervator -- That was a good fight but I was never really worried.  I just wanted
you to feel like you were doing well. -- Layla

Drool Rockworm -- I would have won the fight but that slime all over your chest kept
making my warhammer slide off your armor.  I don't think its legal to have that nasty
stuff on your armor. -- Larry

Commodus -- Well done.  You helped me decide what to do with this warrior now. -- TGG

Hey!  What do you mean by that? -- Lorie

Shai Alyt -- Lady, you can't go dashing around and splashing around if you want to
catch fish my way.  Now, pay attention here.  You pick your spot and E A S E into it,
S L O W L Y so as not to stir up any mud, make any ripples.  And then...you wait.
And you wait some more.  And after that, you wait.  It isn't a job for the impatient.
-- Heron

Frankenrooster -- You're enough to confuse anybody. -- Sarlow

Demonic Egg -- You're a hard-boiled dame and no mistake.  How about if we get
together to make the Really Devilish Eggs? -- Peter Piquin

Hold -- (confused look)  Okay, I'm holding.  Now what? -- Geroge Roft

Lara -- Most days I wouldn't mind a long leisurely chatty fight.  But I have a date
tonight, and it'll take HOURS to fix my hair.  It's got to be JUST RIGHT. -- Fillis
Bouy

Personal Trainer?  Do I know anybody by that name? -- Geroge Roft the confused

The Trainer -- But if we have SIX kills, the whole town might be destroyed! -- Jorja

Old Man -- If you're still here, take note.  Last time I checked, Arvat was still a
Free Blades arena. -- Jorja

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
