                             Notes from the arena champ.

      The Kung-Fu Master is a dwarf, too!  They're all over the place, the hairy
little, er, fellows.  Good enough in their way, I suppose, but they've got to be kept
DOWN, you know.  Nothing so disgusting as an uppity dwarf.

                               O. Poste

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to LETHAL LEGION, as they are pushed from the coveted 
top team spot by the BEYOND THE PALE stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for NOMAD, who 
flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing FRATSFA SLAVE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
FRAIL FREDDY was beat by DELLIS LINZ and drops 11 points.  Well, everybody's pal O. 
POSTE moved his record to 21-34-1 by defeating CONVICTED ASSASSIN in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 2 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, 
but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ZENSU arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ZENSU 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

No two ways about it, the Veteran Mercenary is just past it all.  He should be
allowed to retire. -- Darron Linz

Junkyard Dog -- It was disappointing to find that you are a neuter golem, all metal
and glass.  I was hoping for something, well, not warm and fuzzy, exactly, but closer
to that. -- Dellis Linz, frustrated dog-lover

Stroke -- (irritated look)  I wish you'd stop shouting that, or else get out on a
boat in the river and shout it at the rowers, or something.  It's so WEIRD. --
Tilarin

Disease -- How am I going to get any work done when I'm coughing and sneezing like
this?  You've ruined me, AND my wife and kiddies! -- a poor innocent Thief,
wrongfully Convicted for stealing bread to feed his family

Darron Linz -- Ho, it all seems easy when you're young and rising, doesn't it?  But
there'll come a time.... -- Sinjanos Thropian, Veteran of Many Wars

O. Poste -- Ah!  You think yourself puissant, do you?  If I had been allowed a
weapon, matters would have gone differently, but the arenamaster is my enemy.
Beware, however, for things may change at any moment! -- Gabro Ironaxe, Master of
Kung-Fu and Archmaster of the Battleaxe

Darron Linz -- You are a foolish and ignorant child. -- M. Kellervan Chardinee

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!!! --
Dark knight Blackstorm

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.
