Hail and well met, Cliffhome.  Tedious Ted goes to ADM 26-12-2, a warrior I once sent
to the Dark Arena only for him to kill and come back.  So I kept him around and what
a record he amassed as a scummy sponge waste.  He ran 15-13-8-13-16-6-13 trained to
16-14-8-13-17-6-13.  He goes to ADM Master +3 parry, Master +2 attack, Master
Initiative with 65 learned skills and 4 burns with that 17 will train.  He is mode as
far as I can tell with a +2 in parry.  He got favorites of High/Very low, battle axe,
and learns parry.  One last turn running his favorites and he's out of here.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail and well met, Cliffhome!  It is I, Steven Scimitar, the hatchet wielding slasher
Duelmaster speaking.  Korrible, it was a great fight and you taught well!  Thank you
thank you THANK YOU!  Sui Generis, I know you deserve the crown because you are quite
good.  You've fought a sponge waste the last two turns and maybe I'll give you a
title shot again.  But you are the most likely to upend my winning streak so I won't
challenge you after all.  I leave it up to the fates to decide.

Steven Scimitar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  DENNY'S BKFAST after a sorry 0-0-0 might want 
to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' 
blues!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to FIRE DECK.  FIRE DECK had cause to celebrate, after DARK 
TYPHLOSION got 20 points by beating DINGIL BILL.  A certain someone should cut down 
on the drinking and practice more, after losing 12 points to ROBERTO.  (Discrete 
enough, THUNDER THIGH?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
CONVICTED ASSASSIN, of CLIFFHOME, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome CLIFFHOME's 
Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging 
dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are CLIFFHOME's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BOY O'S, alone and 
unchallenged.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SUPER BASH 
BROTHERS2, so did that sorry team shy from BOY O'S If challenges were horses, DINGIL 
BILL could open up a fast food joint!  JACKY - VF challenged RUNABOUT!  Who says 
SUPER BASH BROTHERS2 are just a bunch of wimps!  JACKY - VF of SUPER BASH BROTHERS2 
kept his wits as he was overcame by RUNABOUT.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in CLIFFHOME would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  CLIFFHOME, 
I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Choking Ogre.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Suie Generis -- You may think that but I am an old wise waste of a warrior with skill
and experience.  Bwahahahah, I almost got that out with out laughing. -- Tedious Ted

All -- Farewell, my fair Cliffhome.  See you on the other side. -- Tedious Ted

Stimpy -- I have never had an undefeated warrior make it to ADM, closest was 19-1-2.
I do not hold my breath for the unlikely.  Even in this small arena. -- Talon

Crapola Crayon -- Get on up to the challengers and I'll give you a shot. -- Steven S.

Korribie -- I have it on good authority that our manager's team supercedes the other
namesake we find in other cities run by some fella who allegedly takes souls.  It
appears that our manager, once young, somehow managed to accept a stable of even less
experienced warriors.  The historical scrolls indicate that everybody was as clueless
as the Persistent Beggar on how to fight on the sands.  Perhaps that is the reference
to our stable name?  Fortunately, I have no clue and really could care less so long
as I don't get sent to the dark arena. -- Crapola Crayon, keeping the dialog
going....

Bob, Eternal -- QUIT PICKING ON ME!!!! -- Crapola Crayon

Jingaree -- Now there we go.  I was beginning to wonder what the hell I was doing
wrong!  I was beginning to think it really was bad luck to BBQ a unicorn. -- D'ark
Cataan

Boy O, Boy O, Boy...where have all the bashers gone.  A forgotten style perhaps?  A
very interesting breakdown of the styles being used in this arena. -- Stimpy

Pinocchio -- Did you realize that when you said your gods would protect you, your
nose began to get longer?  Very odd, I thought it. -- Harandur

Steven Scimitar -- Gods, I hate it when that happens.  I didn't even get a chance to
salute the arenamaster.  Oh, well, some days it happens like that. -- Korribie
