                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Gosh, Particle Man, I didn't realize those were pieces of YOU.  I thought they
were just grains of sand!

                                       Selvun

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZENSU!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for CHUCK ELVIS?  
BEYOND THE PALE's proud of him after beating KHALHUMS DWARF and getting 15 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  ELDA MAINZ got smashed by KHALHUMS DWARF, and lost 6 
points!  Was that a tear I saw in PARTICLE MAN's eye, as he took over Duelmastership? 
And wasn't SELVUN fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     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?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Stilbo Steeleye, Khalhums Dwarf -- Thank you for being there for me.  A couple of
minutes spent in your company is always enlightening. -- Elda Mainz

M. Chardinee -- (groaning)  I guess I shouldn't have partied last night.  At least,
not so, um, enthusiastically? -- Daceana Linz

Sinjanos Thropian, Veteran Mercenary -- Damn.  Was I getting cocky? -- Chuck Elvis

Stilbo -- You need not fear that I'll get a swelled head, I know my own quality, and
it is mediocre. -- Bella Deane

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
