                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow!  This must be surprising to everyone... including myself!  With some more
heralded members of my stable near the top of the standings, who would of thought
'The Sequel' would make the top of the box office!
     Now I know that The Wait didn't fight this turn, and some might say I backed
into the throne.  But I say there has to be something said about consistency!  The
Wait seems somewhat fickle...  I've had a few girlfriends like that.  But as your
reigning Duelmaster, I promise to uphold the honor of this throne, and fight to
defend the title I now hold.  I'll be here to defend the mantle of Kati-Tei, while
others of our arena seek fame and fortune at the tourney of far off lands.  I still
contend there is no greater glory than being 'DuelMaster' of your home arena.
     Our top ranks seem barren at the moment, but if The Wait decides to come out of
hibernation, I will be here to challenge him!  Now I'm off, to do whatever it is
DuelMasters do!

Farewell, Kati Tei!

Syklone Sequel

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KATI-TEI will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as THE STORM FRONT is pushed out of top team by WANDERERS, who came from 
3rd with a 1-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, DODO fought MARLIN REEVE and gained 23 
points and contributed to BIRDS' 2-0-1.  And all eyes were on ANGEL OF ARKHAM this 
turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  KATI-TEI has a new victor!  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  THE STORM FRONT 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 STORM FRONT more than any other team we find THE PLAGUE.  
KATI-TEI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that DODO from BIRDS was KATI-TEI's most challenged warrior this turn.  
UBBA-SATHLA from THE PLAGUE took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 27 points 
in a challenge against DEVIL DOG.  But Fate isn't always willing to be cheated, and 
UBBA-SATHLA was subdued by DEVIL DOG, and DA DOG POWNDAZ has not stopped laughing.  
In a brave attempt, N'KAI from THE PLAGUE challenged up 18 points to fight PURE BREED 
from the DA DOG POWNDAZ stable.  N'KAI perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
subdued PURE BREED and ended up with 26 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The grave that BIRDS had dug for DONE 2 may yet be filled with the body of 
HIGH ELF.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  DONE 2 lives still!  Is it 
really true that KATI-TEI has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just 
thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KATI-TEI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in KATI-TEI, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Samara -- The being is of a monstrous fecundity, spontaneously generating primordial
single-celled organisms that pour unceasingly from its shapeless form.  It guards a
set of stone tablets believed to contain the knowledge of the Elder Gods. -- Ubba-
Sathla
P.S.  Technically it is Ubbo, but I wanted to be different. -- Reaper

     Ubba-Satha rolls off the tongue more gracefully than Ubbo-Satha.

Kohoutek -- ? What is so cool about my ID? -- N'kai

Balin Chane -- Who said you can't teach a young dog new tricks? -- Devil Dog

Dodo -- So happy to see you're not extinct... I almost pee'd in your general
direction! -- Firehydrant Defiler

Grimm Lurcher -- I think people openly wept when they saw you defeat me like that! --
Old Yeller

Devil Dog -- AAAAH!  Not THOSE shoes, those are my GOOD shoes!  You're a devil, you
dog! -- Balin Chane

Old Yeller -- What a racket!  I guess no one ever taught you to whisper, eh? -- Grimm
Lurcher

The Honest Merchant?  I curl my lip in scorn! -- Marlin Reeve
P.S.  But I'll take the win.

Wrolling Thunder -- Well, damn.  Not a good day to be a comet, was it? -- Ghost of
Kohoutek

That Happy Peasant is MADDENING. -- Samara
P.S.  And less happy, for now.

M. Chardinee -- I've been waiting for that one for quite a while.  Thanks! --
Mohnsoon Mayhem

Virginal Concubine -- For a virgin, you sure do make a lot of repeat performances! --
Syklone Sequel

     It's an art.

Veteran Mercenary -- I guess now you can consider myself a veteran as well! -- El
Nino

Spirit of Kohoutek -- Now, that's the way to get back in the swing of things!  It's
been a while since I've been on the sands, so I thought I'd be a little rusty.  But I
didn't think I'd shake the rust of like that.  RIP! -- El Nino

All -- Well, I hope everybody is just taking a break and timing for the tourney!  We
fought 3 stand-ins this turn!  Where IS everyone? -- Storm Lord and The Storm Front

     Acapulco.

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!
