                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Khalhums Dwarf?  Good old reliable but not exciting Goban Steelsinger.
(sigh)  I can't take in pride in this position, or even in my graduation.  It's all a
travesty.  It's pathetic.  I'm pathetic.  I'd cry, but at this time of year, my tears
would freeze, and I have a lot of trouble with my facial de-icer.  Needs repair, I
guess, but who can afford it?

                                     Parnian

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KATI-TEI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, WHEREFOUR WILLY fought RUTHLESS JAYWALKER and gained 17 points 
and contributed to WANDERERS' 3-2-0.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, 
lost to NOBLE ASSASSIN, and PARNIAN has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With 
PARNIAN clearing the throne, 072905R of 5 GOT PICKED takes a proud seat as KATI-TEI's 
new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was WANDERERS' warrior 
SATURN.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in KATI-TEI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

5 Got Picked -- Not by ME.  I would never stop at a mere FIVE.  How stingy!  At least
a dozen.  With pesto.  And crispy little crouton-like crackers.  That would be
gazebo! -- Saturn, mouth watering
P.S.  And little sprigs of fresh broccoli.

That "Friendly Constable" put his hand...!  I can't say it.  But I'm so GLAD I cut
his hand right OFF.  And I cut off some OTHER appendages, too, and I'm glad about
THAT.  And I would have cut his throat, but the arenamaster stopped me.  That was
unnecessary.  The stopping, I mean.  Well, I suppose for HIM it was obligatory, but
still I wish he hadn't.  We don't NEED constables like that. -- Wherefour Willy
P.S.  And he should never have worn that melon-colored tie.  It clashed HORRIBLY with
the blood.

There are a lot of things that I do NOT agree with Willy about, but he's right about
that tie.  The WRONG color.  Especially with that sickly complexion. -- Fritillary

Hey, nobody warned me about these shiftyeyed guys.  They give me a genuine creep.
You can never tell what they're looking at! -- Chock

Lord Protector Parnian -- I am sure I don't need to explain the "problem of lands" to
you, as your teammates have already begun to deal with it.  I'm sure they can put you
in the picture, as the saying goes.  Good luck to you. -- Arenamaster Jailon

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
