     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARDIVENT to see 
what's new.  MVP award for POISED TO KILL?  CYNICAL DELUSIONS' proud of him after 
beating PALANTIRIATHALASA and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
PALANTIRIATHALASA got smashed by POISED TO KILL, and lost 5 points!  This Duelmaster 
is like something else!  RUSTED SOUL stopped GNEISS GUY dead in his tracks!  I hear 
the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Palantiriathalasa -- Well, this round went a bit further; I didn't expect you to roll
and duck so much.  You're definitely displaying a lot more enthusiasm in your fights
with me. -- Eclipse

Gneiss Guy -- No you're not. -- Poised

Solarius -- Yes, the Basher vs. the Total Parry.  Hmm, I always found that a target
standing still was a great target to practice on. -- Rusted Soul

Becker Collin -- I'm starting to think this arena is getting to small.  We seem to be
bumping into each other a lot lately. -- Break Point

Did anybody notice that we didn't get personals in last time?  No, I didn't think so.
Amazing to realize that people once cared enough about this arena to actually make an
EFFORT to keep it open. -- Leeta and Bluvalley Warriors

Eclipse -- Thank you. -- LP Valley-Jo

Eclipse -- Further, we take back our comment anent the silence and disinterest of the
arena.  You, at least, care enough to write personals.  We appreciate that. --
Bluvalley Warriors

Poised to Kill -- I hope you're not poised to die.  I wouldn't want to do that. --
Gneiss Guy

Ah, the Veteran Mercenary.  A thrill.  Okay, maybe a thrill, in a way, since I DID
win. -- Flint Hills

Gosh, M. Chardinee called on his gods during the fight, and you know what THAT means!
Like, sure loss and maybe even death! -- Debra Collin

Break Point -- My turn to break.  Oh, well.  A skills is always a good thing to have,
though you can't buy a loaf of bread with it.  Or, wait, if I were to STEAL the loaf
of bread, the skill might help me get away with it.... -- Becker Collin

P2K -- Well, it was, you know, a prime tanning day. -- Debra Collin

Break Point -- We hope the win this time helps keep you going, though you failed to
learn. -- Becker

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
