                             Notes from the arena champ.

"I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow death and
madness..."

     Embarrassing as it is, The Wait is now your 5 time Duelmaster.  What is Kati Tei
coming to?  43 arena FE and counting...  Not sure if I will be here for too long,
lots of good ABs up here.  Storm Lord is probably seeing purple about now.
     We will see if I remain on the throne but only if you are you willing to...
Wait?

See you on the sands...

Your Duelmaster
The Wait

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for N'KAI, who flew up 
18 points in the rankings after mashing MARLIN REEVE like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SYKLONE 
SEQUEL was subdued by VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and drops 22 points.  Drawing on all of his 
experience as a 13-7-0 warrior, MOHNSOON MAYHEM went for the Duelmastership against 
THE WAIT this week.  It's a proud day for the THE STORM FRONT stable, as their 
warrior, MOHNSOON MAYHEM, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE PLAGUE, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does KATI-TEI really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try 
this one:  THE PLAGUE + Weapons That go Boom = DA DOG POWNDAZ + Avoid City.  And who 
is this OLD YELLER you ask, with 75 points and a 9-8-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!  DEVIL DOG of DA DOG POWNDAZ had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 10 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought DEVIL DOG showed 
great skill and promise when he bested BALIN CHANE.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, WROLLING 
THUNDER was mashed by SAMARA, who let WROLLING THUNDER know that killing members of 
WANDERERS is a no-no.  Congrats to OLD YELLER for revenging the death of his teammate 
(but more importantly, feeding TORE NAYDO a bit of dirt).  Ask not the elves for 
counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the KATI-TEI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and 
I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, 
I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Pure Breed -- Should have kept your eye on Stormy...  Ain't gonna be no rematch... --
N'Kai

Stone Golem -- Death becomes you... -- Angel Of Arkham

Wrolling Thunder -- You've been beated with a -- Red Tentacle

Samara -- Shocking, isn't it? -- Ubba
P.S.  There are not too many ABs around here I can pick on.

El Nino -- Stackin skills like that someday you may win... -- The Wait

Personals from the previous turn....  Huh.  No fight really demands comment.  Let's
look at the newsletter.

N'Kai -- The double numbers.  Four-four.  Seven-seven.  Lucky numbers, most likely,
as mine was not. -- Ghost of Kohoutek

Our congratulations to Angel of Arkham. -- Jorja and the Wanderers

Current personals:

Devil Dog -- Would that I could.  We've considered more than once backing Jorja into
a corner and demanding actual strategy adjustments.  And then we consider Jorja as
we've seen her only twice (but we've heard about other incidents) when she goes
berserk and starts killing everything she can reach and... we get to thinking that we
can manage okay with the strategies and the no-avoids that we've got.  After all,
we're alive. -- Balin Chane

Firehydrant Defiler -- I am unlikely to feel that these wretched yellow hydrants are
worthy of respect, and where there is no respect, there can be no defilement, surely?
In other words, pick your hydrant and go to it. -- Grimm Lurcher

N'Kai -- I don't know about "lucky numbers," I never did get into that id numerology
stuff the way some gladiators have, but you surely do suck up the skills. -- Samara
the Grudgingly Admiring

Ubba-Satha -- Definitely there should be drums, torchlight chanting, frenzied
dancing, all that stuff.  Probably some Unspeakable Cult. -- Marlin Reeve

                        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!
