                             Notes from the arena champ.

X-men and X-women,

     Sorry for missing my chance last turn to chat everyone up.  I just assumed no
one was going to show up and listen anyway.  After the nasty letters I got from The
Middle Way fighters and management, I know now that I was mistaken.
     There isn't much to share with you.  I'm not going to the Isle anytime soon.  I
believe I still have 2 more cycles to try and stay alive.  I have sent 3 warriors to
an early grave, so I will refrain from talking about how I'm a shoe-in for
immortality.  The old adage ever rings in my head, "Those that live by the sword, die
by the sword."
     So, I will take this time to remember those that are no longer with us by my own
hand.  I also wish their managers were still active here (or in the case of Crip,
more active here).
     Lionel Hammer (SL) of Cebuano Hammer
     Duck with Swords (SL) of Ducks Unlimited
     Terror-Dactyl (BA) of Dino Sores!

A Salute to the Fallen of Xochithlan!

Your Duelmistress,
Malice

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of XOCHITHLAN!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with MASTEMA?  He 
actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY's ULRIK VENN, and walked away with 18 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at THE MIDDLE WAY while they watched SALOME TORENE 
clobber SOVEREIGN.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Try as she might, COLLABORATOR wasn't good enough at persuading MALICE to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects 
to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, STEEL WOLVES 
2!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at DARQUE ANGELS ain't reelin'!  STEEL 
WOLVES 2's mad!   
     Warriors of XOCHITHLAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have 
I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
XOCHITHLAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Ulrik Venn -- How a fight that is 6 minutes and one-sided be boring?  Since I won the
bout, I'm putting all the blame on you. -- Sovereign

     No chase scenes.

Bettina Chim -- We keep running into one another, or rather, you keep running into my
sword.  Repeatedly.  With your face. -- Malice

Elite Assassin -- I call shenanigans on the whole "elite" moniker.  I feel that an
"elite" assassin would have shown me something innovative and exciting.  You taught
me nothing new! -- Israfel

Enemy Archer -- You can change your name, but a Khalum Dwarf is still a Khalum Dwarf.
And you can never mask that smell completely. -- Black Guard

Lobo -- Welcome back!  I hope you stick around.  While I always enjoy Jorja's
company, the more the merrier in the arena. -- Master Darque

Wovern Yansy -- I have a feeling whoever connected first was going to win that fight.
Luckily, it was me. -- Mastema

Doesn't say much for the arena that we're second current team with (wince) 4-11. --
the Middle Way

Malice -- *DO* you wear pantyhose under your armor?  What brand?  Mine always snag
and run horribly, and I'd be glad to change. -- Bettina Chim

Lobo -- It's good to have you back! -- Jorja

Sovereign -- I bet we coulda drawn that out longer. -- Ulrik Venn

Desslock Cain -- I didn't need that.  I could've gone a whole 'nother month without
that loss. -- Horvanth Irnde

Morgana Black -- Oh, sure, LOOM over me with your extra two inches!  JUST what I
needed today. -- Salome Torene, discontented with snow, tired of winter, and GOING
MAD WITH CABIN FEVER!

Mastema -- And that wraps us up with an oh-fer.  Just what you'd expect with a full
moon and TOO MUCH SNOW! -- Wovern Yansy
