                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Managers of Niya.. Niyo.. oh, heck, Niatoli (that's the way it's pronounced here in 
the Commission offices) -- Might I have your attention for just a few moments?  I 
would very much appreciate knowing who manages which team here.
     Properly, of course, Debby should have asked you, or even the UnknownSpymaster, 
but, well... (shrug)  Unknown is having one his `mysterious' phases and hasn't been 
seen except briefly; we all assume that he (or possibly even she!) has slipped into 
some identity we don't know about and is doing whatever Unknown does at times like 
that.  And Debby... (sigh)  She flitted in to where I was doing some back filing (I'm 
working as a clerk for the Commission, at the moment) and mentioned something about 
`checking out the tanning season' in Mazgourrah, which is about as far south as she 
can get and stay in touch with the Commission at all.  She asked me to `keep these 
boring old lists up to date', which of course I will do for her.  I've suspected that 
sooner or later this job would end up on my desk; so many do. She's exasperating, but 
really quite a nice person, good-hearted, once you know her, even if she is a little 
careless about things like deadlines. (aside)  I don't know how she ever came to be a 
spy reporter, though.  It seems so far from her main interests.
     So, anyway, from reading the last few newsletters, and using the list of teams in 
the cycle 299 newsletter, this is where I stand for Niatoli:
     Animal Dezire -- manager unknown
     Assassins Five -- manager unknown, though I have my suspicions
     Assassins X -- manager The Elder
     Girl Scout Cookies -- manager Cookie Monster
     Homes -- manager Coeur
     I'm Dan, Man -- manager Hoffa.  Dan Hoffa?
     Impressions -- manager False
     Obsidian Hall -- manager unknown
     Snotzi's II -- manager unknown
     The Warbirds -- manager Bird Master
     The Wild Hunt -- manager unknown
     Could I just take a minute here, managers of N. Island, and suggest that you join 
me in petitioning the Commission to regularize the spelling of this arena's name?  I 
can NEVER remember how to spell it, and if I see it written, I can't remember how to 
pronounce it.  I realize that my convenience is a very small point in the life of N. 
Island and it's people, but I just thought I'd bring it up.
     Thank you all for your assistance; I do appreciate your cooperation. -- Livia

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in NIYTYOLE ISLAND since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is 
great while it lasts, HOMES.  But how many friends do you have now?  Up 'n down.  Up 
'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, 
OBSIDIAN HALL's 4th moved them up to 1-0-0 place.  What's with SAVANNAH?  It actually 
beat HOMES' PASADENA, and walked away with 11 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at HOMES.  PASADENA lost 11 points to SAVANNAH.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe PASADENA will provide more easy wins...  See how the Duelmaster 
challenged GIRL SCOUT COOKIES' KOOKABURRA?  That sort of initiative is how he got 
where he is now.  Try as it might, KOOKABURRA wasn't good enough at persuading BEAG 
LOICH 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.  
NIYTYOLE ISLAND thinks HOMES and their 106-112-4 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at THE WILD HUNT ain't 
reelin'!  HOMES' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, KOOKABURRA!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of NIYTYOLE ISLAND unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a 
warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND 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

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt NIYTYOLE ISLAND will ever be the same.  And let's see, CONDOR fought BLACKER 
and gained 11 points and contributed to THE WARBIRDS' 3-2-0.  BLACKER has lost to 
CONDOR, falling 5 points, while helping make HOMES a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, BEAG LOICH has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We 
should ask SAVANNAH about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster 
does for a warrior, it's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Don't Drop Inn uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say 
sometimes), ORANGE PARK challenged SAMOA today, facing a 29 difference in 
recognition.  And now nobody knows where SAMOA is right now, after giving ORANGE PARK 
29 points worth of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind me.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, NIYTYOLE ISLAND, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in NIYTYOLE ISLAND, but never 
good to wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises 
and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

All -- Hey, where has everyone gone? -- Bird Master

Condor -- I don't doubt it.  Good luck. -- OP

Livia - The manager of Obsidian Hall is me.  My name, Dameon Darkheart.

     Livia -- I think changing the spelling of the name of our island is a great plan!  
     Count me in.  But why not even change the name?  How about--Sugar's Island?  Nah, 
     just kidding.  But getting something people can spell sounds like a winner to me, 
     and as the Arenamistress, I know a winner when I see one! -- Sugar, Mistress of 
     Niatoli (Arenamistress, that is!)

10/31/97
All -- A new and powerful alliance has formed that will raise the level of competition 
within the game to a higher level.  We hve been active in the game for more than ten 
years and have now joined forces to dominate Alastari.  First came the Dark Circle, 
then the Numbers Crunchers Alliance, Legion 7 next...and now LEAGUE ARCANE.  We are:  
Destitute Noble, Carnage, Bird, Stimpy, Shadow, Floyd, and Talon Volksie.  Prepare, 
for the future of Duelmasters is now!

     Can you believe that this will be the 20th Face-to-Face???
     We have settled on a date for the next winter Face-to-Face:  January 30th-
February 1st, Friday through Sunday.  It'll be at the Ramada Valley Ho Hotel in 
downtown Scottsdale, Arizona (6850 Main Street).  Room rates are $90.00 per night for 
singles and doubles.  They are offering free suite upgrades while they are available--
you just need to ask when you make your reservations.  The rooms are blocked, so you 
can call ahead to reserve your room (tell them you're with the Reality Simulations 
tournament).  Their phone number is 800-321-4952.  You'll want to fly into the Phoenix 
Sky Harbor airport, and there's a free airport shuttle to the hotel. 
     The tournament information sheet and strategy sheet should be out soon.
     See you there!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  NIYTYOLE ISLAND needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, THE 
WARBIRDS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by GIRL SCOUT 
COOKIES!  Way to go GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-0 
this turn for a total 7-4-0 you ask?  (Sure)  I'M DAN, MAN's their name, and 
fighting's their game!  MVP award for DROP DEAD DAN?  I'M DAN, MAN's proud of him 
after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
TEMPE's match with KING FISHER cost it a loss of 3 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  SAVANNAH stopped CONVICTED ASSASSIN dead in his tracks!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said NIYTYOLE ISLAND's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Don't 
Drop Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  Like, is EAGLE popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all 
of NIYTYOLE ISLAND!  He's got a 6-9-0, is that good?  People were asking me did 
ORANGE PARK REALLY challenge FALLSWORTH?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but FALLSWORTH wants me to 
write about it since he won victory over ORANGE PARK.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  How cruel!  THE WARBIRDS heartlessly sent 
hers to HAWK certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 2-12-0 bad or something?  Hey you 
guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have 
someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Orange Park -- Wow!  How'd you do that? -- Samoa

All -- Savannah graduates!  Yay!  In case you care, Savannah's a 13-10-8-17-11-8-17 
slasher.  Ad master init, Master attack, Experts in riposte and decise.  Favorites:  
great axe, high, very low.  Not awesome, but not bad either. -- Cookie Monster

Bird Master -- We're still here. -- Cookie Monster

Dameon D. -- Someone use a resurrection prize on you?  Say, what'd you end up using 
that +5 prize on?  I hope the answer isn't "one of my stinkin' P-strikes!"

BTW, I run 'I'm Dan, man' here now.  You gonna be active for awhile?  If so, I may as 
well run.  I'd love to kick the crap out of Ryanator! -- Shoto or Hoffa or whatever I 
called myself here...

     Dameon Darkheart -- It is my pleasure to meet you, sir.  May your team always 
     fight well. -- Livia

     Arenamistress `Sugar' -- In case you have failed to note the fact, you are the 
     arenamistress (the gods know why) of ARVAT, not of Niytyole Island.  Please 
     confine your opinions and comments to your won little newsletter. -- Arenamaster 
     Kaghal of Niytyole
     P.S.  Do you employ the denominative `Sugar' in the hope of distracting people 
     from the faint but inerradicable odor of fish and river mud that lingers about 
     your admittedly `well-rounded' person?

     Kaghal -- Frankly, I think your ragged-tailed, ship-wrecked gladiators would be 
     happier with a warm, friendly person like me than with a stiff-necked old megorst 
     like you.  I'm a lot more fun. -- Sugar

Bird Master -- Dunno.  Serious vanishing act, tho. -- Coeur

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  NIYTYOLE ISLAND needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
JUBILEE?  GIRL SCOUT COOKIES' proud of it after beating KING FISHER and getting 24 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  RYANATOR got smashed by CONDOR, and lost 9 
points!  Was that a tear I saw in SCOT TEA's eye, as it took over Duelmastership?  
And wasn't FALLSWORTH fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Can THE 
WARBIRDS' OSPRY be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  Speaking of challenging 32 points above did you hear about ORANGE 
PARK of HOMES vs. GIRL SCOUT COOKIES' KOOKABURRA?  (And how was that intro!) What did 
ORANGE PARK expect, anyway!  Of course KOOKABURRA won.  Next time stick to people you 
have a chance against, dummy!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this beast???  VEGETIUS gets sent to the Dark Arena, 
battles GERELIN LOSTFIRE, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet OBSIDIAN HALL manager 
is surprised!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from 
you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

     Well, what do you want to be called, Shoto or Hoffa?  I'll credit you either way. 
     -- Livia

     Kookaburra -- You graduated at a bad time.  The only land we've got available at 
     the moment are a couple of lots in the cemetary.  However, there's always the 
     chance that something will turn up--some old miser die of the cold, for instance, 
     and leave his entire estate to the government of Niatoli, or something like that.  
     We'll give you a raincheck, if one of the cemetary plots doesn't appeal. -- 
     Arenamaster Kaghal
     PS.  Join me in lobbying for better government on this island of Niatoli.  OTHER 
     arenamasters don't have to handle ALL the details themselves, the way I do.

like to hear from you!  Diplo Dirt Nap, mgr. Dragonmasters, DM-10.

                                TOURNEY PRIZE REMINDER

     This is just to remeind all managers with unused tourney prizes that these prizes 
must be used within six months of the tourney in which the prize was won.  Prizes left 
unused after six months will become invalid.  Please contact Customer Service to use 
your prize as soon as possible.

                                  CENSUS FORM UPDATE

     The Gladiatorial Commission would like to thank all the managers who have been so 
kind as to correct the few mistakes we may have made in noting the races of your 
warriors in our files.  At this point we are beginning to work on the warriors listed 
as "Other" on the census forms, and we would like to issue a reminder that if you have 
a warrior who qualifies as an "Other," please let us know.  In other words, if your 
warrior is a cat, please let us know he's a cat rather than penciling him in as an 
Aruaki--the Temple of Demnat gets very touchy about this sort of thing.  Likewise for 
warriors now classified as golems--if your warrior is a specific type of magical 
construct, summoned spirit, or the like, please provide us with as much detail as 
possible.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIYTYOLE ISLAND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  FIRE AT WILL caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BLACKER and was awarded 
17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FIRE AT WILL put 
down BLACKER, causing it to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has SCOT TEA in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
it's proven its combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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

     Hoffa or Shoto or whatever your name is -- Keep a better control over your 
     warriors!  I can't afford to be constantly replacing Embezzling Scribes and the 
     like.  Do you think standby fighters grow on trees?  I actually have to import 
     them!  This is extremely expensive, and you may expect to receive the bill. -- 
     Arenamaster Kaghal

     Dameon Darkheart -- You are lucky it was a Dark Arena warrior that Vegetius 
     killed.  THOSE, I can get resurrected, although even that isn't free.  Your bill 
     will be smaller.  But I congratulate Vegetius on the win. It isn't everybody who 
     can defeat a High Elf. -- Arenamaster Kaghal 
     P.S.  Gerelin is a renegade Monuntialese elf, in case you wanted to know.

     Orange Park -- Good advice, but how many of these lazy warriors are likely to 
     take it?  They sit around the taverns for ten or twelve days, then rush into the 
     gym and try to make up for lost time...  "Quick," they say, "I've got a fight in 
     two days, and I need to work on my parry!"  Tcha!  A bunch of slackers, that's 
     what they are. -- Arenamaster Kaghal

All DM Arenas -- Are there any other managers in the West Tennessee area?  If so, I'd 
like to hear from you!  Diplo Dirt Nap, mgr. Dragonmasters, DM-10.

To:  Sheila, Lady of the Grey Wand
From:  Darkwolf, Arch-Wizard of Stormcrowe, High Advisor to King        Brynnjolf

Hello dear lady,

     I trust you are in good health and you find the struggle for peace less 
demanding.
     This is my yearly report of happenings of your ancestral homeland of Stormcrowe 
and Glacks Keep.  Your cousin, my King, sends his best wishes.
     T'was a rather quiet year this year.  The weather was mild this year, which 
spurred more shipping than usual.  There were actually LESS rainy days than sunny 
days, something that has not happened in my 27 years.  Perhaps this will be a 
continued trend.
     Talks continued with the Karnhorn Empire for a more open relationship between our 
two countries.  We are hoping to buy the Durukar Canal in the near future.  I hope we 
can strike a deal by the end of the summer, but I'm told I am too optimistic.
     I am still trying to get the Satrap and King Brynnjolf to meet.  I think if the 
two could talk face to face without middlemen, that much animosity between the two 
could be cleared.  I cannot believe that the Satrap is as closed minded as I've heard.
     I spoke with the High Shaman of Blacks Keep early last spring.  Quite a 
remarkable man.  He predicted the unusual weather that occured.  I shall have to 
consult him before the trading season begins again.  You should be pleased to hear 
that all is well on the Island.  You should try to take time out of your busy schedule 
to visit your ancestral home.  They would love to have you, as would Stormcrowe.
     There was a disturbance in Kurukar last Jadeflower that supposedly involved some 
Stormcrowe citizens.  My sources have not confimed this, nor have they denied this.  
The Kalif will not allow us to assist in the investigation.  If the reports of his 
idiocy are ture, there mmay be trouble between us.  The last thing any of us need is a 
war between Stormcrowe and Kurukar.  If that happens, may Elyssindal have mercy.
     Disturbing news.  In the wild swamps on the northern edge of Stormcrowe Bay, we 
discovered what I believe to be the remains of a Chaos Gate.  I have been studying it 
to determine if it could be reopened.  So far my findings are inconclusive.  I have a 
round the clock guard on the site until I can determine what we are dealing with.  If 
you feel it necessary to investigate yourself, I can give you the coordinate.
     On a more positive note.  Do you remember the man who designed our beautiful 
arena?  A man name Hooper?  He has invented a flameless lantern powered by the energy 
found in lightning.  No magic involved whatsoever.  It is not a bright light, but I 
believe that with a little work, he could make it powerful enough to be seen in 
Aljafir.  I tell you the man is a genius.
     I shall end this now, since you have much to do.  We in Stormcrowe are ever 
indebted to you.  Should you ever need us, just call.

                                        Yours in magic,

                                        Darkwolf of Stormcrowe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of NIYTYOLE ISLAND.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny 
Vir to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at 
GIRL SCOUT COOKIES left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by 
SNOTZI'S II.  Good show!  Practice pays for OSPRY, who pummelled FIRE AT WILL, to 
pocket 18 points.  FIRE AT WILL certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to OSPRY and losing 15 points in the process!  SCOT TEA successfully staved 
off a grab for the roses by MACABRE of OBSIDIAN HALL.  Does NIYTYOLE ISLAND have no 
one talented enough to dethrone it?  Word has it one team in NIYTYOLE ISLAND is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of I'M DAN, MAN, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, SNOTZI'S II scurried away from I'M DAN, MAN.  Oh, 
the shame!  If challenges were horses, JUBILEE could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in NIYTYOLE ISLAND is the highlight of my life.  Keep 
those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid NIYTYOLE ISLAND farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

     Gods, no dead at ALL?  You didn't have to cease killing each other, you know.  In 
     fact, I would recommend it--clear the ground a little. -- Arenamaster Kaghal

     Kaghal -- I just would like to point out that Gerelin is not an elf at all.  He's 
     an orc.  How could you make such a fundamental mistake? -- Terreg, a fan and 
     holder of a season ticket for the Niatoli arena

     Terreg -- Well, why do you think he's a renegade?  His father was an orc, and his 
     mother was a Monuntialese elf.  He had to leave home when his tusks came in, but 
     he was RAISED as an elf, he THINKS of himself as an elf. -- Kaghal
     P.S.  Don't mention it to him; it's a sore subject.

All -- I have decided to make some changes for the new year. The first one being a new 
manager name. From now on I, formerly unknown as Sweetness, will answer to Hipster 
Dufus. That was easy enough, I don't know what the big deal about New Year's 
resolutions is. "Get busy living or get busy dying."  The Shawshank Redemption - 
Hipster Dufus

All -- Hail Mongo!!!  I, Blackthorn of Sibhikas, have graduated thanks to his wisdom.  
My manager would have sent me away had not Mongo intervened, and suggested a way to 
make me a most formidable opponent in Basic:  WS, 17(2)-17(1)-13-9(2)-17(2)-5-15(2), 
Ex +1 attack, Adex +4 parry, GS favorite.  My record stands now at 27-8-1, with my 
last fight a loss in the DA, ending my career. -- Blackthorn of Drunk Before Noon

1/13/98

To:  Sheila, Lady of the Grey Wand
From:  Darkwolf, Arch-Wizard of Stormcrowe, High Advisor to King        Brynnjolf

Hello dear lady,

     I trust you are in good health and you find the struggle for peace less 
demanding.
     This is my yearly report of happenings of your ancestral homeland of Stormcrowe 
and Glacks Keep.  Your cousin, my King, sends his best wishes.
     T'was a rather quiet year this year.  The weather was mild this year, which 
spurred more shipping than usual.  There were actually LESS rainy days than sunny 
days, something that has not happened in my 27 years.  Perhaps this will be a 
continued trend.
     Talks continued with the Karnhorn Empire for a more open relationship between our 
two countries.  We are hoping to buy the Durukar Canal in the near future.  I hope we 
can strike a deal by the end of the summer, but I'm told I am too optimistic.
     I am still trying to get the Satrap and King Brynnjolf to meet.  I think if the 
two could talk face to face without middlemen, that much animosity between the two 
could be cleared.  I cannot believe that the Satrap is as closed minded as I've heard.
     I spoke with the High Shaman of Blacks Keep early last spring.  Quite a 
remarkable man.  He predicted the unusual weather that occured.  I shall have to 
consult him before the trading season begins again.  You should be pleased to hear 
that all is well on the Island.  You should try to take time out of your busy schedule 
to visit your ancestral home.  They would love to have you, as would Stormcrowe.
     There was a disturbance in Kurukar last Jadeflower that supposedly involved some 
Stormcrowe citizens.  My sources have not confimed this, nor have they denied this.  
The Kalif will not allow us to assist in the investigation.  If the reports of his 
idiocy are ture, there mmay be trouble between us.  The last thing any of us need is a 
war between Stormcrowe and Kurukar.  If that happens, may Elyssindal have mercy.
     Disturbing news.  In the wild swamps on the northern edge of Stormcrowe Bay, we 
discovered what I believe to be the remains of a Chaos Gate.  I have been studying it 
to determine if it could be reopened.  So far my findings are inconclusive.  I have a 
round the clock guard on the site until I can determine what we are dealing with.  If 
you feel it necessary to investigate yourself, I can give you the coordinate.
     On a more positive note.  Do you remember the man who designed our beautiful 
arena?  A man name Hooper?  He has invented a flameless lantern powered by the energy 
found in lightning.  No magic involved whatsoever.  It is not a bright light, but I 
believe that with a little work, he could make it powerful enough to be seen in 
Aljafir.  I tell you the man is a genius.
     I shall end this now, since you have much to do.  We in Stormcrowe are ever 
indebted to you.  Should you ever need us, just call.

                                        Yours in magic,

                                        Darkwolf of Stormcrowe

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  HOMES now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  
Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, HOMES has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  
Hey everybody, watch out for SCOURGE, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ORANGE PARK was defeated by SAMOA and 
drops 11 points.  In front of all the crowds, FALLSWORTH took the Duelmaster's crown 
for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the 
body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, JUBILEE would be president.  Although 
it may be a contest it doesn't want to win.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the NIYTYOLE ISLAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

     Gods, no dead at ALL?  You didn't have to cease killing each other, you know.  In 
     fact, I would recommend it--clear the ground a little. -- Arenamaster Kaghal

1/10/98
All -- I have decided to make some changes for the new year. The first one being a new 
manager name. From now on I, formerly unknown as Sweetness, will answer to Hipster 
Dufus. That was easy enough, I don't know what the big deal about New Year's 
resolutions is. "Get busy living or get busy dying."  The Shawshank Redemption - 
Hipster Dufus

All -- Hail Mongo!!!  I, Blackthorn of Sibhikas, have graduated thanks to his wisdom.  
My manager would have sent me away had not Mongo intervened, and suggested a way to 
make me a most formidable opponent in Basic:  WS, 17(2)-17(1)-13-9(2)-17(2)-5-15(2), 
Ex +1 attack, Adex +4 parry, GS favorite.  My record stands now at 27-8-1, with my 
last fight a loss in the DA, ending my career. -- Blackthorn of Drunk Before Noon

2/5/98
Does anyone have a favorites potion or a style switch prize that they are willing to 
part with?  I'm willing to pay top dollar.  If so contact me (Papaiz) at DM 26, 
Warckers(362).

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Most new teams do poorly at first.  LEGENDS OF YORE, however, has 
gotten off to a reasonable start at 3-2-1.  Nice job!  Hey everybody, watch out for 
ROLAND, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing BLUDGEON like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was CONDOR, who 
dropped 17 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with ZONKER.  Well, 
everybody's pal SAMOA moved its record to 20-15-0 by defeating ORANGE PARK in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 3 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the NIYTYOLE ISLAND arena.  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad HOMES?  Big bad HOMES.  Big bad 
HOMES.  NIYTYOLE ISLAND's afraid of the big bad HOMES.  Tra la la la la!  And you 
guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SNOTZI'S II beats feet 
every time HOMES smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as BLUDGEON goes 
down under the sword of ROLAND.  Thanks to this, ROLAND now has 22 recognition 
points.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter 
problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the NIYTYOLE ISLAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

     All -- Sorry that I was unable to provide some of my illumnating comments for you 
     last cycle, but things have been a bit hectic... in my life.  Not here on 
     Niatoli. -- Terreg

     Gods, no dead at ALL?  You didn't have to cease killing each other, you know.  In 
     fact, I would recommend it--clear the ground a little. -- Arenamaster Kaghal
     P.S.  Haven't I said this before?

     Scot Tea and Fallsworth -- You are, by the declaration of Sheila Greywand, 
     entitled to land here on Niatoli.  Sheila Greywand HAS no land here on Niatoli, 
     and probably has no idea how SMALL this island is.  Where does she think I'm 
     going to get `lands' for every Tom, Dick, and Hairy who graduates from this 
     benighted sandspit?  Still, if you really want a little Niatolian soil to call 
     your own (above and beyond what clings inescapably to one's boots after a brief 
     walk down our main street), come by my office and I'll show you the list.  It 
     isn't particularly inspiring, but this is, after all, Niatoli. -- Arenamaster

My name is ANKOS, a mad Frenchie.  I just want to know if someone knows a French

                                 FACE-TO-FACE XXI

     Our next Face-to-Face will be held on 24-26 July 1998, Friday through Sunday, at 
the Adam's Mark Hotel in Columbia, South Carolina (1200 Hampton St.).  Room rates are 
$80.00 per night, 1-4 occupancy.  The rooms are blocked, so you can call to reserve 
your room (tell them you're with the Reality Simulations convention).  Their phone 
number is 800-771-7000.  Our room block will be released on 2 July, so reserve your 
room now.
     There is a free hourly shuttle to the airport, as well as free covered parking.  
The hotel is located in the downtown area.  There is a health club with indoor pool 
and jacuzzi (I'm still trying to find out if there is a volleyball court for Sandy) as 
well as a sports bar and restaurant attached to the hotel.  Look for transportation 
info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
May/early June. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NIYTYOLE ISLAND?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  I can just hear all the boasts 
coming in THE SEWING CIRCLE's next personal ads.  Their first turn they went 4-1-0.  
Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CHUBBY win a fight and gain 19 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SAN JOSE beat VULTURE and VULTURE lost 8 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, NIYTYOLE ISLAND may be 
getting bland, as SAMOA stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
NIYTYOLE ISLAND?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  THE WARBIRDS, 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 
it looks like SNOTZI'S II avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Does anyone have a favorites potion or a style switch prize that they are willing to 
part with?  I'm willing to pay top dollar.  If so contact me (Papaiz) at DM 26, 
Warckers(362).

My name is ANKOS, a mad Frenchie.  I just want to know if someone knows a French 
manager who's already playing to DM?  If yes, in which arenas?  Thank for your 
response.  You can contact me by email at yraleh@usa.net

I have been putting together a pamphlet about Duelmasters.  It is called "The 
mousetrap" and is aimed primarily at less experienced managers, but I feel it has much 
to offer everyone.  It includes articles by such famous managers as Scrag, Doc 
LeGrand, Neon Necromancer, Guardian, Shadow, and many others, and a wonderful 
introduction by our beloved NAIMT.  Heck, I even wrote a few articles.  It will print 
some time in March.  To order send your name and street address with a check for 
$10.00 made out to Tom Davis to: Tom Davis, 154 Agricultural Ave. Rehoboth MA 02769, 
or via diplo to Flatlanders in DM 37 or 104.  You can contact me by e-mail at 
TDavis1753@aol.com.  I am sorry I have to charge anything, but this is over 60 pages 
of discussion by some of the best managers in the game for less than the price of a 
turn.  If I make back my investment, I will produce a follow-up next year. -- mouse,

Any Manager who created a team at the January FTF - You need to contact RSI and let us 
know where you want to transfer that team.  The arena (DM 81) in which they are in is 
not an active arena, nor will it be; it is used solely to allow managers to get 
overviews faster.  If you wish to have a choice in where your team is placed please 
contact us soon.

"The Duelist"

This is a (Non-RSI) Duelmasters handbook which represents years of data accumulation, 
analysis, and experimentation by many managers. It also represents thousands of 
dollars of investment into worthless warriors, teams, phone calls, and postage.

I've tried to compile everything I could about Duelmasters and put it in the handbook 
with accurate explanations about the various charts. This is the most complete source 
of information out on the game, as of yet.  Everything is 'top of the line' 
information on topics such as: hit-points, coordination, handedness, intelligence, wit
-statements, endurance, damage ability, encumbrance, quickness, activity, skill 
charts, weapons & armor, along with various other things. This book will allow you to 
"see" a warrior before you send his roll-up sheet off to RSI.

For the newer managers, after sifting through the 60 (sixty) pages, you will be able 
to see the errors that many of us managers have made, create warriors based on skills, 
and have the in-depth look inside the game of warrior design. For the older managers, 
it is a time of reflection about the game, to see the book challenge your concepts 
with writings from other experienced managers, and find out the degree of knowledge 
that is currently known. Yet in all cases, this handbook should be able to fill the 
gaps between the information that RSI has published, and the information you may have 
already gathered.

I have most recently been to the Face-to-Face in Scottsdale, Arizona. I had a chance 
to bring "The Duelist" to the attention of, in my opinion, some of the most 
experienced managers of the game. Below are the managers, in order, that have seen the 
handbook, and verified its contents as 'good information' for any manager to have, 
especially any new manager:

Boss Rat - David Law - Dark Circle
Guardian - Steve McDonald - Dark Circle
Doc LeGrand - Deke young
Shadow - James Vance - League Arcane
Carapace - Joel Breger - NCA
Hoffa - Jim Patrick - Legion 7
Soultaker - Craig Mundale - FONZ
"many" - Wayne Smith - The Consortium

(Thank you, gentlemen, for taking up your own time at the FTF for going through my 
handbook, and allowing me to use your names in the all-arena-add.)

This is how you can get "the Duelist": Please understand that this is not a means for 
me to gain anything monetarily, nor is it sponsored in any way by RSI. My only benefit 
is that I will have done all I can do to help keep this game alive, and hopefully by 
evening out the battlefield, make it more enjoyable for everyone. I have been able to 
reduce the costs of the handbook to $7 (seven dollars), which includes postage & 
handling. Just send a check, or money order, payable to me, along with your name and 
address, and I'll send you the handbook. I know that once you get your packet in the 
mail, it will be the best seven dollars you have ever spent on this game.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome NIYTYOLE ISLAND.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  HOMES showed 
NIYTYOLE ISLAND what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off 
with 4-1-0.  NIYTYOLE ISLAND's got someone new to push around.  C'mon everyone, 
challenge GUYS YOU CAN TRUST.  Let's see how long they last.  What's with CHUBBY?  He 
actually beat NIYTYOLE ISLAND's KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 18 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at HOMES while they watched DABNEY clobber JUBILEE.  
It lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure 
NIYTYOLE ISLAND is excited about ORANGE PARK, the new Duelmaster from HOMES.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  NIYTYOLE ISLAND thinks 
THE WARBIRDS and their 35-63-3 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  In my day, no team with a 34-59-3 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
SNOTZI'S II?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Pillory -- (frowning) I had intended to be more accurate, but your efforts to evade me 
threw off my aim.  It would be much simpler if you would just stand still.  Faster, 
too. -- Inarikta

Castigate -- (raised eyebrow)  Did someone hand you the wrong weapons, or are you 
attempting to commit suicide the hard way? -- Tatharli

Angst -- Ouch.  I see it isn't as easy as it looks.  Well done on your part, sir. -- 
Serna

Well, darn, nothing but Pain Corps and Standbys.  How boring.  Although I don't object 
to skills, and at least none of us got killed.  That would definitely be unboring, but 
much too extreme. -- Lovina, team captain, The Sewing Circle

Gosh, doesn't anyone write personals here?  Would you all be offended if we wrote an 
occasional spotlight? -- Lovina

     Go for it. -- Ed.

I have been putting together a pamphlet about Duelmasters.  It is called "The 
mousetrap" and is aimed primarily at less experienced managers, but I feel it has much 
to offer everyone.  It includes articles by such famous managers as Scrag, Doc 
LeGrand, Neon Necromancer, Guardian, Shadow, and many others, and a wonderful 
introduction by our beloved NAIMT.  Heck, I even wrote a few articles.  It will print 
some time in March.  To order send your name and street address with a check for 
$10.00 made out to Tom Davis to: Tom Davis, 154 Agricultural Ave. Rehoboth MA 02769, 
or via diplo to Flatlanders in DM 37 or 104.  You can contact me by e-mail at 
TDavis1753@aol.com.  I am sorry I have to charge anything, but this is over 60 pages 
of discussion by some of the best managers in the game for less than the price of a 
turn.  If I make back my investment, I will produce a follow-up next year. -- mouse, 
Warden of the Dark Circle

Any Manager who created a team at the January FTF:  You need to contact RSI and let us 
know where you want to transfer that team.  The arena (DM 81) they were originally 
placed in is not an active arena, nor will it be; it is used solely to allow managers 
to get overviews faster.  If you wish to have a choice in where your team is placed 
please contact us soon.

"The Duelist"

This is a (Non-RSI) Duelmasters handbook which represents years of data accumulation, 
analysis, and experimentation by many managers. It also represents thousands of 
dollars of investment into worthless warriors, teams, phone calls, and postage.

I've tried to compile everything I could about Duelmasters and put it in the handbook 
with accurate explanations about the various charts. This is the most complete source 
of information out on the game, as of yet.  Everything is 'top of the line' 
information on topics such as: hit-points, coordination, handedness, intelligence, wit 
-statements, endurance, damage ability, encumbrance, quickness, activity, skill 
charts, weapons & armor, along with various other things. This book will allow you to 
"see" a warrior before you send his roll-up sheet off to RSI.

For the newer managers, after sifting through the 60 (sixty) pages, you will be able 
to see the errors that many of us managers have made, create warriors based on skills, 
and have the in-depth look inside the game of warrior design. For the older managers, 
it is a time of reflection about the game, to see the book challenge your concepts 
with writings from other experienced managers, and find out the degree of knowledge 
that is currently known. Yet in all cases, this handbook should be able to fill the 
gaps between the information that RSI has published, and the information you may have 
already gathered.

I have most recently been to the Face-to-Face in Scottsdale, Arizona. I had a chance 
to bring "The Duelist" to the attention of, in my opinion, some of the most 
experienced managers of the game. Below are the managers, in order, that have seen the 
handbook, and verified its contents as 'good information' for any manager to have, 
especially any new manager:

Boss Rat - David Law - Dark Circle
Guardian - Steve McDonald - Dark Circle
Doc LeGrand - Deke Young
Shadow - James Vance - League Arcane
Carapace - Joel Breger - NCA
Hoffa - Jim Patrick - Legion 7
Soultaker - Craig Mundale - FONZ
"many" - Wayne Smith - The Consortium

(Thank you, gentlemen, for taking up your own time at the FTF for going through my

This is how you can get "the Duelist": Please understand that this is not a means for 
me to gain anything monetarily, nor is it sponsored in any way by RSI. My only benefit 
is that I will have done all I can do to help keep this game alive, and hopefully by 
evening out the battlefield, make it more enjoyable for everyone. I have been able to 
reduce the costs of the handbook to $7 (seven dollars), which includes postage & 
handling. Just send a check, or money order, payable to me, along with your name and 
address, and I'll send you the handbook. I know that once you get your packet in the 
mail, it will be the best seven dollars you have ever spent on this game.

                                   FAXING IN TURNS

     If you fax in your Duelmasters turns, realize that most fax machines have a 
border on the right and left side of the paper where no image is transmitted or 
printed.  When you put your strategy sheet in the fax machine, make sure you allow 
extra room on the right side, especially if you are challenging that turn.  When the 
ID# of the warrior you are challenging is cut off, we are unable to enter the 
challenges.  There are four possible solutions to this problem:  

    1)  Load the strategies farther to the left, so the Duelmasters dude is cut off, 
        rather than your challenges, 
    2)  Write the ID# of the warrior you're challenging in the space for the name, 
    3)  Load the strategies long-wise (but then you have to be careful about 
        overlapping the sheets, which can also cut off the ID#s), or 
    4)  Face the fact that you won't get all of your challenges through.  

We'd prefer solutions 1-3, but it's your choice. 
     Also, please be careful that your fax machine isn't transmitting too darkly or
lightly.  If you write your turn in pencil, some fax machines will transmit the 
pencil so lightly we can't read it when it gets here.  If your fax machine can make
copies, it's a good idea to try making a copy first to make sure it's readable, adjust
the darkness if you need to, and then fax it to us.  Be especially wary of the 
Advanced Duelmasters Strategy Sheets, because if your fax machine sends the grey 
shading too darkly, we won't be able to read those lines at all.
     Good luck!

Hey, you guys, I'm still missing a few manager names here! -- Debby

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in NIYTYOLE ISLAND a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can 
make the difference, as GIRL SCOUT COOKIES is pushed out of top team by HOMES, who 
came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for IMPRESSIONS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 
into 10th.  THE WARBIRDS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 6 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
DIGGER DAN fought TEMPE and gained 16 points and contributed to I'M DAN, MAN's 1-0-0. 
TEMPE has lost to DIGGER DAN, falling 5 points, while helping make HOMES a 3-2-0 
turn.  BEAG LOICH challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
GIRL SCOUT COOKIES' warrior.  And not without some honor, BEAG LOICH now claims the 
title and throne of Duelmaster of NIYTYOLE ISLAND.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Don't Drop Inn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  OBSIDIAN HALL has cause to stand tall, as they were NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding OBSIDIAN HALL more than any other team we find THE WILD HUNT.  NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was HOMES' warrior ORANGE PARK.  More fighters challenged it than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, CONDOR from THE WARBIRDS challenged 
up 18 points to fight ORANGE PARK from the HOMES stable.  CONDOR perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was overcame by ORANGE PARK and ended up with 34 recognition 
points.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in NIYTYOLE ISLAND again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in NIYTYOLE ISLAND a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can 
make the difference, as GIRL SCOUT COOKIES is pushed out of top team by HOMES, who 
came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for IMPRESSIONS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 
into 10th.  THE WARBIRDS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 6 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
DIGGER DAN fought TEMPE and gained 16 points and contributed to I'M DAN, MAN's 1-0-0. 
TEMPE has lost to DIGGER DAN, falling 5 points, while helping make HOMES a 3-2-0 
turn.  BEAG LOICH challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
GIRL SCOUT COOKIES' warrior.  And not without some honor, BEAG LOICH now claims the 
title and throne of Duelmaster of NIYTYOLE ISLAND.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Don't Drop Inn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  OBSIDIAN HALL has cause to stand tall, as they were NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding OBSIDIAN HALL more than any other team we find THE WILD HUNT.  NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was HOMES' warrior ORANGE PARK.  More fighters challenged it than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, CONDOR from THE WARBIRDS challenged 
up 18 points to fight ORANGE PARK from the HOMES stable.  CONDOR perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was overcame by ORANGE PARK and ended up with 34 recognition 
points.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in NIYTYOLE ISLAND again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
