                             Notes from the arena champ.

Master is not happy with this team.  We're not fighting with any consistancy.  Win, 
lose one is not what he's looking for.  Master also thinks we should have more kills. 
I'm trying but Tirraj just won't die.  I'm gonna use the Halberd.  We'll see what 
that does.  At least the replacements look promising.  They'll be showing up soon.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome VEASTIAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  VEASTIAN 
watched with glee as CLASSIC GAMES got knocked off top spot by THE FAMILY!  What's 
with KURESSA D'GEN?  She actually beat ANIMAL MAGNETISM's LION, and walked away with 
11 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at ANIMAL MAGNETISM.  LION lost 8 
points to KURESSA D'GEN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LION will provide more 
easy wins...  I'm sure VEASTIAN is excited about STILJANZ, the new Duelmaster from 
THE FAMILY.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was CLASSIC GAMES.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at ANIMAL MAGNETISM ain't 
reelin'!  CLASSIC GAMES' mad!  What do people see in ASTEROIDS?  His 2-4-0?  CLASSIC 
GAMES ain't talkin', but he's got 10 points.  TAMARA RAHN of TERMAGANT VOTARY knows 
how to pick 'em.  She challenged TIRNIELLIS of THE FAMILY who is up by 20.  Now was 
this a wise move?  TAMARA RAHN perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was 
subdued by TIRNIELLIS and ended up with 49 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Someone told FEROCIOUS that CLASSIC GAMES never 
Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right 
sorry.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young 
rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  VEASTIAN 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Tirraj -- Back on top where I belong. -- Ethon El Keer

Konjor -- Sorry for picking on you again.  You make it so easy.  And the skills you 
teach come in handy. -- Tamera Rahn

Otis -- Never mind the bloodfeud.  Prepare yourself for the tourney.  Maybe you'll 
run into one of my Zuwayza killers there. -- Noachian, Servant of Kjarran mgr. 
Termagant Votary

Tamara Rahn -- Damn.  Some people you just can't be nice to.  See if I let you make 
the first move next time, eh? -- Konjor
P.S.  But what else could I expect from an orc?

Ethon El Keer -- Much more like yourself this time. -- Tirraj
P.S.  And I don't have to do the "column."

By golly, I beat the Kung-Fu Master!  That's almost as remarkable as beating the 
Dangerous Criminal. -- Stiljanz

By his own words, my victory was more remarkable than Stiljanz's, as I DID defeat the 
Dangerous Criminal.  Ha! -- Tirniellis

Pacman -- Well, thing is, I never did get the hang of games more complicated than 
poker. -- Kuressa D'Gen
P.S.  Or maybe I should say, requiring less thought than poker?

Ethon el Keer -- On the whole, I think not.  They itch, and it's harder to get the 
girls to kiss me if my face is hairy. -- Tirraj

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm
