                             Notes from the arena champ.

     While I cannot honestly say that I take the title with pleasure, I am sure it is
better I have it than (shudder) Frzngrmdbeefpatties.  Setting aside that her name is
much too long for the forms, she is such a cold fish that we really don't want her
sitting at the top of the heap disseminating waves of disinterest.  Unlike my
opponent, I will keep this seat WARM for somebody better.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in CLIFFHOME!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, INQUISITION CLONES, but 
U.A.K. was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for DASHER?  JINDA-BAN's proud of 
her after beating CONVICTED THIEF and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  FRZNGRMDBEEFPATTIES' match with CPT. CRUNCH cost her a loss of 4 points!  
Like, ZIPPO must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from JINDA-BAN.  Does 
this guy have a death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in ZIPPO's eye, as he took 
over Duelmastership?  And wasn't BALLOU YS fit to be tied!  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  CLIFFHOME is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Lee Lee Lo Lee -- You laughed.  I heard you very clearly. -- Ghost of Articulate Lori

Scrod Boy -- You gotta remember, fish stink after three days. -- Lomber Bos
P.S.  My momma said that.  What I think is, they stink a lot sooner.

     Depends on how you keep 'em.  They're not too bad if frozen--as long as you get
     them out to the garbage STILL frozen. -- Ed.

Well, okay, I can understand why an elf would LEAVE Mordant, but deserting is a
different matter. -- Riquettie

Poulan -- When you return to activity, I wish you many wins.  Well, ten, anyway.  I
don't have to worry about the Dark Arena, but every time I step out onto the sands,
the odds tip farther against me.  It's a gamble whether I graduate or suffer
Developed Warrior Death.  Nick seems to feel that either would be bad, he hates
recruiting, but I have MY preferences, sure enough!  Good luck to you. -- Ballou Ys
P.S.  A strategy change?  Hmm, that hadn't occurred to me.  Could it have happened
without me noticing?

Average Joe -- Goofy hats have a lot to answer for! -- Riquettie

Riquettie -- I make my way to this city from the den of inequity which is Mordant,
and what do I get?  Silly little girls in black leather beating me up!  Hmm, black
leather...?  There are interesting possibilities here. -- Morfindel, Mordant Refugee
and reluctant gladiator

Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

To those interested, G.E.C.K.O., Inc, is looking for able-bodied warriors to embark
on a dangerous mission.  Those interested (or for more details) diplo me at:
Juice, DM 93, mgr. Arena Masters, Inc -- Juice

30 June 2006
All -- I am looking for able bodied warriors, magic-wielding wizards, faith-healing
clerics, and quick-handed thieves to begin a quest requested by the Emperor of the
Southern Kingdom of Crailmia.  All interested parties can diplo me in arena 93 --
Noblish Island, c/o Will-O-Wisps (1422) or write to me at -- Robert Bennett, 317173,

BROTHER KNIGHTS OF THE DESOLATE EMPIRE -- Hail brothers where ever you are to be
found!  We are engaging in arena 31.  Let them feel our wrath.  Onward to glory!!! --

Soultaker -- Read your e-mail! -- Guardian

10 July 2006
The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
Knight.
     AS OF JULY 1, 2006 -- WAR IS DECLARED ON THE ALLIANCE KNOWN AS THE VENDETTA
CARTEL.
     The Desolate Empire -- Dark Knights:  Ancient Creep, Blackstorm, Dok Sik, Goat,
Heathen, Hatebred, Kon, Osiris, Toker, Wasby the Great

14 July 2006
In response to the Desolate Empire's declaration of war, the Vendetta Cartel offers
the following response:

The members of the Vendetta Cartel can be found in 1, 8, 9, 10,  11, 14, 22, 25, 28,
31, 39, 45, 47, 50, 52, 54, 59, 60, 100, and 106.  Stop yapping in the all-arena ads,
pick an arena, issue a challenge, actually win something, and then maybe (and we
stress maybe) you may speak.  You may come to our home arenas (8, 31, and 47) and
confront us, but we suggest you learn to win in your own "home" arena (52) first.
