                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello warriors of X-town!  I like the view up here and I hope to keep my throne next
turn also.  A congrats to the skill of my opponent last turn, Duck a l'Orange.  My
challenge goes out to Hot Air Duck this turn.  It is not exactly the match up that I
would like to take, but I have few other options.

I wish everyone well in the tourney.  It will have come to pass the next time we
fight here, but I still hope that X-town was well represented and no one met with an
untimely demise.  It is such a bother to die in the tourney, your friends and family
have little luck with revenging your death.  I hope that I'm not sealing my own fate
for the tourney.

Your Duelmaster,
Outlaw Star

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail XOCHITHLAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  The THE MIDDLE WAY guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched 
in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, 
KAHR, JACK fought RIRORNI OFFICER and gained 15 points and contributed to CRIMINAL 
ELEMENT's 2-2-0.  MATT RISIDE has lost to COLLABORATOR, falling 5 points, while 
helping make CRIMINAL ELEMENT a 2-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and OUTLAW STAR remains XOCHITHLAN's top warrior for another turn.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Swinging Aardvark?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the DUCKS UNLIMITED 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on XOCHITHLAN, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided DUCKS UNLIMITED stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was DARQUE ANGELS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was THE 
MIDDLE WAY's warrior QUIA RAYNE.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in XOCHITHLAN and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in XOCHITHLAN again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Duck a L' Orange -- I figured the jump was going to decide that fight. -- Outlaw Star

Mann Slaughter -- Not the ideal match up in my mind, but if I'm going to lose it
might as well be to an alliance mate. -- The Fallen One

Anaconda -- Ducks, snakes, and demons...this really is a strange arena.  Who deals
out the real estate around here? -- Etrigan

Magua -- I keep matching up with you, and I really don't like it. -- Black Guard

Wendal Xoki -- Three in a row for me.  I just hope the luck continues. -- Malice

Sonja -- Should I consider myself part of an adult literacy teaching group?  No, that
would imply that I cared whether or not you could read, and you're a CAT.  Who cares
if cats can read?  In fact, better that they can't.  No telling what a cat might get
up to with a little extra power. -- Quia Rayne

Black Adder -- But today, you engaged in subtraction.  I wish you wouldn't. -- Belle
Cor

Kahr, Jack -- Listen, Jack, you bring my carriage BACK right NOW, or I'm going to the
Arenamaster. -- Opara Persi
P.S.  I know that isn't part of his job in the usual way, but he's the scariest
person around, so I figure he's the one.

Malice -- (recoiling)  Good gods, a killer!  Who sent me out to face an experienced
killer?  Someone hates me! -- Wendal Xoki the very alarmed

Well, I realize being a Rirorni Deserter is apparently Very Bad, hence his presence
in the arena as a standby.  But If *I* could desert this place and this job, believe
me when I say that I would do it in a split second! -- Mori Neb, not cut out for this
life

Sonja -- Break my knuckles?  I have KNUCKLES?  Those are so low class! -- Opara
Persi, sure that she has a much more refined joint

Magua and Sonja -- Is this about the special drinks concession we started back in
January?  Because I sublet my share of it to Quia Rayne, so come down on HER. --
Opara Persi

12 October 2005
Magic Man -- You are a fellow Canadian, are you not?  Where do you hail from?  I live
in Kelowna, B.C. -- Maximillian, 8,13, 28, 47, 54

It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
