                             Notes from the arena champ.

Phil, I must really thank you for giving up the throne so easily.  I told you I would
claim it again, but you would not believe me, instead, you just sat in your chair
with that stupid look on your ugly misshapen face and acted cocky.  What a
pimplehead.  Now you know who is the best.  And that's me.  Oh, Hammer, if you're
reading this.  Don't worry about me killing any of your warriors.  I have decided to
only beat the royal crap out of them each turn.  The pleasure has been all yours.
The One.  The only.  The Crippler.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DUCK CREEK HAMMER caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CAPTURED ORC and 
was awarded 11 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
AMBITIOUS GUARD put down BEAR CREEK HAMMER, causing him to lose 13 points of 
recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, 
THE CRIPPLER has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp 
of the usurper.  All hail THE ANVIL, Duelmaster of NIATOLI ISLAND!  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 NIATOLI ISLAND.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
NIATOLI ISLAND these days is KLKASINO HAMMERZ.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding KLKASINO HAMMERZ.  Indeed it was 
ERRATA.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  ACE HEARTS 
HAMMER take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in NIATOLI ISLAND.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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

Phil -- I decided to sit the Crippler out this turn so the Anvil could blatter you
with as much enthusiasm. -- Ikillu

Errata -- You can't even get your sandbaggers to win fights.  What a joke. --

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.
