                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail and well met my fellow Kati-Tei'ns!

I have two words for you...
1) Wait
2) Arkham

....would you like some puppy love?!  Either one of my personalities would enjoy a
match with either of ya....  Go strong or go home I always say!!!

Until next turn....
     Same doggy time,
          Same doggy place,
               Same doggy channel,
                    Your Duelmaster,
                         Skitzoid Snoopy

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KATI-TEI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, TORE NAYDO fought N'KAI and gained 20 points and contributed 
to THE STORM FRONT's 3-1-0.  N'KAI has lost to TORE NAYDO, falling 11 points, while 
helping make THE PLAGUE a 1-3-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, 
SKITZOID SNOOPY kept THE PLAGUE's warrior, THE WAIT, from claiming the throne.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  THE PLAGUE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were KATI-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding THE PLAGUE more than any other team we find DA DOG 
POWNDAZ.  KATI-TEI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was THE STORM FRONT's warrior EL NINO.  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.  Congratulations go out to THE STORM 
FRONT, with MOHNSOON MAYHEM revenging a bloodfeud against FIREHYDRANT DEFILER of DA 
DOG POWNDAZ.  Is it really true that KATI-TEI has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KATI-TEI and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in KATI-TEI again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Skitzoid Snoopy  (Shlittlez Measly?  Hemorroidz Droopy?)... -- I am thinking about a
champions run in the fall.  So at FE = 26, PP = 16... I do not want the DM (yet) or
the PPs it brings, so We will see what happens.  I will be dialing up your number in
future. -- Angel of Arkham
P.S.  The Wait is a looser.  Not interested in an all AB matchup scenario.  He will
be around this turn as we have some PL and SL as possibles.

Fang -- Surprise... -- N'Kai

Syklone Sequel -- Interesting fight, you are better than your record would indicate.
-- Angel Of Arkham

Requiem -- You've been beaten with a -- Red Tentacle

Marlin Reeve -- Shocking, isn't it... -- Ubba-Sathla

Everyone -- We have to stop giving up cheap wins to Marma.  His head is going to get
stuck in the arena door....  Maybe if we butter up the sides of his head... -- Reaper

Mohnsoon Mayhem -- There you go...  I knew that first fight was a fluke!
Devastated... now that\'s a good word! -- Skitzoid Snoopy

Grimm Lurcher -- Your prospects were grim the moment you saw me standing there my
friend. -- Lucky Dawg

Kohoutek -- I might be man's best friend, but you might be mine! -- Old Yeller

Doomed -- A name has never been more fitting. -- Devil Dog

Ghost of Sue Nami -- Apologies for the kill....  I see cloudy skies in my future. --
Firehydrant Defiler

El Nino -- Listen, can you DO anything about this hot/humid front that's hanging over
us?  We're all wandering around the house feeling like steamed cabbages. -- Balin
Chane
P.S.  Maybe cauliflowers.

Ubba-Sathla -- I never did care for squid, you know.  I figured to leave eating squid
to the whales.  So lay OFF me, okay? -- Marlin Reeve

Old Yeller -- What a voice!  My head's going to ache for a week. -- Kohoutek
P.S.  Although it might have been the peach thrown by a fan.  It had a stone in it.

Lucky Dawg -- Seems like. -- Grimm Lurcher

Sunbane -- And your point is?  I mean, sun isn't everything.  Well, if you're a
plant, it's a lot, but still. -- Samara

El Nino -- Re a storm coming fast and strong, bring it on.  We're on high ground at
our place, don't have to worry about flooding, and maybe a storm will clear the air.
-- Grimm Lurcher

Skitzoid Snoopy -- Well, at least this time you weren't so stingy on the skills! --
Mohnsoon Mayhem

Balin Chane -- That was fun!  Now, that's what I call "Ballin'!"  Hehehe. -- El Nino

Angel of Arkham -- I actually did better than I thought I would against you!  Now
it's your turn to take on the top dog. -- Syklone Sequel

Firehydrant Defiler -- I knew I couldn't trust a dog that would pass up a perfectly
good tree or bush!  I will be avenged! -- Ghost of Sue Nami

teams, please contact Customer Service. -- RSI 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), free 
airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the tournament info 
sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
