                             Notes from the arena champ.

     "I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow death and
madness..."
     The perfect set of challenges....  The boss is pleased.  For some reason he took
off looking for Angel muttering about the fall Tourney.
     Let's see... I am now your 4 time Duelmaster.  I know... think about that!!  The
shame of it...
     Lots of smack being talked from the Throne lately:
Blah blah blah Dawg Powdaz...
Blah blah blah Storm Front...
     El Nino -- Much of a onslaught, but what can you expect of a fighter who shows
up every 2-7 years.  You must have been too busy cleaning up after Hemorrhoidz Droopy
with your Snoopy scooper to notice me coming.
     Reaper was looking at his records; it appears I entered Kati Tei on Turn 535.
Who says 40 fights at 60% in regular DM is not possible anymore.  You just have to be
willing to ...Wait?

Your Duelmaster
The Wait

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KATI-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DA DOG POWNDAZ was 
unseated this week as THE STORM FRONT moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-0-1 record for the round.  FIREHYDRANT DEFILER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DODO and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FIREHYDRANT DEFILER put down 
DODO, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, THE WAIT has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail SYKLONE 
SEQUEL, Duelmaster of KATI-TEI!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die 
in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KATI-TEI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  KATI-TEI, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is THE PLAGUE, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of THE STORM FRONT last week.  Busy avoiding THE PLAGUE?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  BALIN CHANE take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in KATI-TEI.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, 
it seems that DEVIL DOG posted a challenge against the more highly recognized BALIN 
CHANE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand DEVIL DOG beat BALIN CHANE.  
Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week KOHOUTEK, at 6-10-0, departed KATI-TEI forever.  Fate 
is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies 
against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in KATI-TEI as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Mohnsoon Mayhem -- Ahhh, the crit to the junk...  What a way to end a fight!!! --
Angel Of Arkham
P.S.  Thanks for the skills.

El Nino -- Ahh, the joy... -- The Wait

Balin Chane -- I knew it was an ambitious challenge, but decided to go for it anyway.
Well done! -- Devil Dog

Dodo -- Now, that's more like it! -- Old Yeller

Marlin Reeve -- Well fought. -- Firehydrant Defiler

Tore Naydo -- That sure put a smile on Marma Duke's face! -- Pure Breed

Birds -- Welcome back to Kati-Tei! -- Marma Duke and Da Dogs

The Wait -- Hey, that's not fair!  How did you get to challenge me when you didn't
even fight the turn before.  I'm filing an official protest. -- El Nino

Virginal Concubine -- I think you have to find a new line of work! -- Syklone Sequel

Angel of Arkham -- Thought you were holding out for the tourney.  Pretty sneaky, sis!
-- Mohnsoon Mayhem

Pure Breed -- I'm kind of partial to mutts myself.  Sheesh! -- Tore Naydo

Devil Dog -- Devilish indeed.  But how about a backup weapon? -- Balin Chane

Firehydrant Defiler -- I don't actually care about the fire hydrants, but I'm hoping
to hang onto a winning record here. -- Marlin Reeve

N'kai -- When I saw your personal identity number, I almost quit on the spot.  A
tricky, lucky number.  Fortunately, I had an experience edge that saw me through to
victory.  I liked that. -- Kohoutek

Ubba-Sathla -- I kept expecting you to start playing a drum and grunting.  Glad you
didn't, but the thwarted expectation may have cost me the fight.  Oh, well. -- Samara

Red Tentacle -- Ah!  I've been trying a new tactic, the "Tie a knot in it" tactic.
Seems to have worked, but can I do it again? -- Grimm Lurcher

Devil Dog -- Indeed.  Bu the way, could I interest you in a hunt in the hills west of
town? -- Grimm Lurcher
P.S.  We might make a good team.

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
