                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I salute you, Nakor, and with luck will hand off this title to you when I leave
after next turn.  Anything to keep that Cheap Shot Ignore down.

                                    Opara Persi

P.S.  The census form says I have a low ego rating.  Probably due to the Cheap Shots
around here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in XOCHITHLAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for 
COLLINGWOOD?  KIWI CONNECTION's proud of him after beating NATIVE LOOTER and getting 
14 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  RENNOR SIMM's match with WHAKAPAPA cost him 
a loss of 4 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  OPARA PERSI stopped 
RIRORNI ASSASSIN dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of DOG SOLDIERS II 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why CHEAP SHOTS' been avoiding DOG 
SOLDIERS II so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  XOCHITHLAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Rirorni Woman -- You dead piece of dung, only REAL women belong in this arena.  And
you aren't real--alive or dead! -- Snicker

Morei Neb -- Another day, another dollar.  Ho hum. -- Ignore

Opara -- Your jealousy befits you.  Of course you wish you were a Cheap Shot or had
what Cheap Shots have, but sadly, you will have to live as you. -- Cheap Shots
Management

Was that a 2-0-1?  Hmmmmm.  Perhaps there will be bonuses this year for some. --
Cheap Shots Management

Yeah, sure.  For management, I'll bet. -- Sneak (not at all fooled by the statement)

Like I'm going to notice some golem?  No way.  I'll just ignore it. -- Mori Neb

An Elite Assassin?  What does he assassinate, then?  Elites?  That's a kind of
antelope, isn't it? -- Deela Ellis

D'Urville -- (surprised look)  You're a long way from home. -- Rennor Simm

Pony -- An animal I never did care for.  Stupid, hysterical, and surprisingly
fragile.  I just wish YOU were fragile.  No such luck. -- Xyokor Yahl

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

Chase a.k.a. SwineTiger

ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with
appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
