                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings, all!

In case any of you had not noticed (I know the leather cap I wear in the arena can
shade some of my features) I am P.Y.T., and that stands for something.  Noble told me
that originally, when he first saw me, P.Y.T. stood for "pretty young thing".  Since
then he says he has assigned new meaning to the letters P.Y.T. when it comes to
describing me--though he won't tell me what the acronym stands for in his head now.
Probably something dirty....

As for our steadily growing arena...hussah!  It is fantastic to see so many (non)-
friendly faces and to know that you likely won't have to face the same warrior again
and again, like was the case when I first joined the games here in Arvat many years
ago.  The challenger champ pool is still a bit light though, and littered with
warriors I do not really want to face.  Bill, that Khalhums Dwarf is one tough
customer...ok...I've never really fought him, and he did not really look all that
tough, but he survived your onslaught so he must not be half bad.  Sorry you won't be
collecting your "bonus" or whatever from the Dark One...he probably woulda withheld
it from you anyway.  Our newest member Thunderkiss has made a big (and I mean BIG)
splash in the arena with a 2-0-1 start.  As they say though, it's not how you
start....

That's it for this turn Arvat...here's hoping to see another day with a Notorious
Duelmistress on the throne.

P.Y.T.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARVAT games.  Former top team RILL'S GCSC2 was 
unseated this week as LUROCIAN GUARD moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of 
ANGELS OF PAIN.  How else weeks like this one's 4-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 
10th team?  Fortune did not smile upon AAAAUUGH HAMMERZ this time out who this turn 
suffered a fall into 20th position in the wake of a 0-2-0 round.  Did only my eyes 
note the 4-1-0 record which LUROCIAN GUARD managed to post this round?  I don't doubt 
that such a record will draw challengers!  A new guild, THE JOKER'S WILD, entered 
ARVAT with a clash this turn, showing off a 4-1-0 record.  Indeed, a worthy addition 
to the city guilds.  CANDICANE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as she skillfully bested NADAR and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, CANNIBALISTIC COW put down GEROGE ROFT, causing him to 
lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon the will of 
others, Duelmaster P.Y.T. challenged ROLAND last week in a match to decide the fate 
of the throne.  The city has turned out in honor of ROLAND, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" 
to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath 
his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARVAT.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BIG LAKE NOMADS is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of DEVIL ADVOCATES are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  ROLAND take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in ARVAT.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it 
seems that DROOL ROCKWORM posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
DEMONIC EGG.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand DROOL ROCKWORM beat DEMONIC 
EGG.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  SNOWSTALKER has sworn to take up 
religion upon living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare 
thing indeed!  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  BIG 
BETTY has the town astir with the news of hers Dark Arena victory!  BILL BERITH, may 
you forever slay thy enemies with impunity as you did SEXTUS.  Are there none left in 
ROMAN HEROES who hold honor as a virtue?  THE WEAPONSMASTER must hold silent, for 
this week he was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by THUNDERSTRIKE 
of STORMBLADE.  Hail THUNDERSTRIKE for thy victory!  My hearty congratulations 
CARKEN, for thy revenge upon THUNDERKISS 65, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time 
it will know better, eh?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with 
fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARVAT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Psychotron -- Big words from a guy who hides from me by not fighting this turn.
Curious that none of my challenges make it through also when you do manage to drag
yourself out onto the sands.... -- Bill Berith

Khalhums Dwarf -- Three hits for extra damage and six altogether....  You sure ate
your wheaties this week. -- Bill berith

Roland -- Race you for the most wins in Arvat! -- I. M. Ceytin
P.S.  I think the number is either 34 or 35....  Warrior called Sartre of the
Philosophers back in the day.

Caesar -- Hope your vacation is going well.  Hopefully we will see you back on the
Arvat sands shortly! -- the Dark One

Gelen -- No, no, NO!  Was there ever such an inept fisherman?  You don't just stand
there and jab everything that twitches, not unless you want a catch of minnows,
crawdads, frogs, and dragonflies, not to mention the odds of stabbing your own FEET.
I freely grant you superiority in the arena, but shallow-water fishing is MY arena,
and you have to do it RIGHT.  Still as a fence post, preferably on one foot, and you
WAIT.  You wait for a fish worth spearing, you wait for it to get into the right
position, you wait for the waves to still because you can't stab accurately through

water if there's any disturbance at all, you--  (sigh)  You need patience to fish my
way.  Maybe you need to try some other method, such as throwing dynamite into the
harbor and scooping up all the fish that are stunned by the concussion. -- Heron

Frankenrooster -- Seems to me I saw a really interesting recipe the other day...for
"coq au vin."  How about if we just give it a try, eh?  I've got some vin right here
to make it easier to decide. -- Sarlow

For the Goldings! -- Yes, well, (cough cough) you know how Jorja feels about
goldings.  Uh, godlings.  She never was much for packing gladiators in cotton, or
wool either.  I don't get the "cotton wool" thing, because cotton and wool are two
DIFFERENT things, aren't they?  Well, anyway, if you can't handle the pepper, don't
eat at the Wharf. -- Peter Piquin
P.S.  Or the garlic.

Evil Fantasies -- Drat, I wish Arenamistress Sugar hadn't stopped me.  I really
wanted to know more about your fantasies.  I mean..."evil."  That's so subjective.
Maybe they're just...novel.  Really different.  I could maybe get into something
different. -- Fillis Bouy
P.S.  Unless it involves blood.  I see enough of that in the arena.

Anguish -- Wow, I bet that was a good one!  Did you feel it? -- Geroge Roft

T. Love -- There is an organization, not really bounty hunters exactly, based south
of here to catch teams that go sneaking off in that direction.  I could maybe give
you a name to contact, well, not a NAME, but a door to knock on and a password to
whisper, they're very careful about who they let in.  If you're interested. -- Jorja
