                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail, Arvat!

It's good to be back.  This week I traveled to the tournament to see how my
guildmates performed.  I must say that for the most part I was quite pleased.  No one
really under-performed and a few showed good promise in tournaments that they were
not really ready for.  By next time I feel that we'll have several TVs in the bunch.

I got back to town just in time to fight Heron.  It was a worthy fight and Heron did
his best, but I subdued him quickly with several well placed shots to his arms,
causing him to drop his weapon and surrender.  My first challenge, Psychotrom, was
nowhere to be found this week.

I noticed that there were no Romans on the sand this week as apparently they all got
together for a Roman-style orgy on an island called Sardinia.  Those Romans are tough
but they make life interesting.

In the meantime we have several MORE new teams arriving in Arvat.  I cordially
welcome all of you and request that you identify yourselves.  Any newer players
please definitely do so.  Anyone who does not identify themselves will be considered
to be an experienced player and will be open to challenges.  If you are new we
typically give you a 10 turn grace period where we will not challenge you.

Until next time, fair Arvat, I remain:

Bill Berith
Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  It was a tough 
week for CAESAR'S THUGS, to drop 8 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 
3-2-0 outing, ARVAT STRONGHOLD has advanced 6 places in the rankings.  It looks like 
the guys(?) at LUROCIAN GUARD had a good week as they went 4-1-0 to put them in 2nd 
place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for GEROGE ROFT, who flew up 
24 points in the rankings after mashing ANGUISH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was ANGUISH, who dropped 14 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with GEROGE ROFT.  Our last turn's 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, and BILL BERITH has made the way 
for a new Duelmaster!  With BILL BERITH clearing the throne, NOTORIOUS of P.Y.T. 
takes a proud seat as ARVAT's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad NOTORIOUS?  Big bad NOTORIOUS.  Big bad NOTORIOUS.  ARVAT's afraid of the 
big bad NOTORIOUS.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
NOTORIOUS + Weapons That go Boom = DEVIL ADVOCATES + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, 
but if challenges were votes, FILLIS BOUY would be president.  Although it may be a 
contest she doesn't want to win.  Well, it looks like THE ORPHAN MAKER wasn't happy 
with last turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 26 points.  No guts, no 
glory.  A Carrion Bird Sellout:  THE ORPHAN MAKER 9-6-1 fights ROLAND 28-15-0.  
(BYOB) Challenging down 17 points was DROOL ROCKWORM.  Pretty soon he'll be using two 
shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  I just want to 
congratulate DEMONIC EGG on beating DROOL ROCKWORM.  She overcame hers 
superior-ranked opponent and gained 24 points.  Congrats!  Getting lots of flowers 
from sympathetic fans was HOLD, who was successfully challenged by LARA who had a 
mere 17 points more than HOLD.  Definition of petty:  LARA subdued HOLD, a mismatch 
of 17 points.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, LARS went after P.Y.T., 
who was higher by 21 points.  Well, when the dust settled, LARS was overcame by 
P.Y.T..   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  We might as well mark the passing of 
GLAMOROUS HAMMER, who was relatively new to the arena at 3-2-0.  Probably killed 
before hers first shave.  ROMAN HEROES has one more week to get their bloodfeud off.  
I talked to the manager, but he could only grunt 'SEXTUS who?'.  Ya gotta luv em!  
Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on 
the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Ouch!  You step away for one drink and the team goes South.  I have to slow down at
the post-fight socials. -- T. Love mgr., the First XV

Mountain General -- I need my armor made by the same guy who makes your dagger.  My
maul took more damage than you did. -- Tighthead

Pentad and Saratoga Glory -- Honor's demand is now doubly hard.  I look forward to
satisfaction and competition. -- I. Love mgr., the First XV

Rumor of the week:  An artifact of ancient power was hidden in the hills North of
Arvat.  It is said that whoever finds this artifact will have three consecutive
undefeated turns in the arena!

Orphan Maker -- Good time for a challenge.  You caught me in the middle of an
experiment--which was clearly a failure.  I'll catch up with you a little later on.
-- Ted Ickens

Roll Up Gods -- Finally you guys appreciated my sacrifice!  Which one was it?  The
dozen virgins or the case of scotch? -- the Dark One

Trainer Max -- Rough tourney...I'm confident that you will make a huge comeback for
the mail-in, though! -- the Dark One

Look at all these guilds that are participating in furthering the glory of Arvat!!
Who'da thunk the arena could be this vibrant again??  It appears we had a good
contingent at the tournament too!  What a difference a few years makes.... -- D.
Noble

Max -- Thanks for the offer on the PR tourney...but I'm not certain if either Thunder

Road or Devil Digger will be around to participate...if you know what I mean.  Every
turn I flip a gold piece, and it keeps coming up heads so they are dormant instead of
DA'd.  I really gotta get that team whipped into shape. -- D. Noble

Bill Berith -- Congrats on your defense of the title last turn.  Wow--your challenged
opponent certainly has a lot more fights than you...takes a lot of juice to challenge
the most worthy opponent every turn.... -- Psychotron
P.S.  Feel free to throw a challenge my way and let's see who is the better striker.

Bill Berith -- What, me in a title fight?  No way!  This gladiating is just my spare-
time job, it's the fishing that matters.  I wouldn't have TIME to do all the parties
and speeches and stuff, not to mention all the drinking binges.  Can't go out fishing
with a hangover, because the fish CAN TELL.  Fact.  They won't come anywhere near a
fisherman with a hangover.  If you're in a boat, of course, this is fine, gives you
time to rest and recover.  But when you're standing on one leg, up to your knee in
water, you want FISH. -- Heron
P.S.  But I'm sure you'll do fine.

Frankenrooster -- Oh, for pity's sake.  I know you can do better than that.  You just
need to work out a good training program.  Maybe start with peppercorns, and then
work your way up to the hot ones. -- Peter Piquin

Lara -- Have you considered the fact that your name is Aral spelled backward?  And an
anagram for Arla, as well.  These things can make an enormous difference.  Even an
orc should be able to see that. -- Sarlow

Hold -- Heck.  Every time someone in the stands shouted your name, I'd freeze for a
couple of seconds, and every time I froze for a couple of seconds, you belted me one.
Was this some kind of put-up job? -- Geroge Roft, battered and bewildered

Larry -- You think I'm going to fry fish for a GOLEM?  No way!  I want people who
will APPRECIATE the dishes I put in front of 'em.  Or else no one. -- Fillis Bouy
P.S.  But you can wash the dishes afterward.

Demonic Egg -- I also think we should get together.  What spicy dish we could make!
-- Peter Piquin

Frankenrooster -- Gotta work on that, pal. -- Sarlow

Ghost of Personal Legend -- You don't want to die, don't match against me. -- Black
Orc of Arvat

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
