                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I have to tell you that this was an embarrassing experience.  I lost to
the Venomous Concubine.  Sure, she's tough.  Other people have lost to her in the
past and will do so in the future.  But after *I* lost, I was still Duel2Dudette, AND
I received my Invitation to the Isle.  I feel as though it was under false pretenses!

                                      Ballou Ys

P.S.  Greatsword?  You are KIDDING me, that thing's bigger than I am!

                                      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!.  Coming up with a solid 1-2-0 outing, BOY O'S 
has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for VITO, who flew 
up 13 points in the rankings after mashing CONVICTED THIEF like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was LOMBER BOS, who 
dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN.  Well, everybody's pal BALLOU YS moved hers record to 16-39-0 by defeating 
M. CHARDINEE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 4 recognition points.  Can 
you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in CLIFFHOME have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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

Scrod Boy -- You just look like fish sticks to me, boy. -- Lomber Bos

Entei -- If you're going to carry on like that after a trifling little injury, then
you are NOT cut out to be a gladiator.  Give it up, kid. -- Dasher

Jade -- Ah, but this is not, when you come right down to it, the Orient, is it?  But
a good teacher will be forgiven much. -- Riquettie

I can't help it, I just don't BELIEVE in a dwarven Osksi Noble.  It's some kind of

20 October 2006
In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the
Turf War 5.  Whoever sent this to me...please email me at rbaphomets@yahoo.com.
Thanks.
