                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Holy cow!  (That's not blasphemy, you know, as they do believe in holy bovines
in some countries.)  I did it again!  I find it hard to believe I defeated Bone Mill
three times in a row, including one on his challenge.  Prior to this trio, I would
not have been sure I could beat him once.  Perhaps I am a better warrior than I
think, but I tend to place more credence in the "lots of praying" alternative.  Oh, I
do get plenty of monastery time, but that taskmaster Fandil The Wise makes us
practice more than they do on "Dancing With The Stars"!  (Go Bristol Palin and Kurt
Warner!)
     I asked the wise Fandil if I could go to the Challengers Mailer Tournament, and
he responded; "Why would you want to place three tournament losses on your record?"
I hope he was being facetious, and would rather believe his original statement that
The Consortium had chosen to focus on newer teams for this tournament.  Besides, he
just might be right with his prediction.  As you can see from my DM posts, I am not
so confident of my warrior stats and ability, but do place great confidence in my
support system.  Pray.  Pray.  Pray.
     Meanwhile, here I am at the top of The Arena Of The Red Sands.  Will it be Bone
Mill again?  Or will Errata or Deathtongue get through with a challenge?  They are
all formidable, and I would bet that any one of them would be favored by those Las
Vegas Oddsmakers.  Pray for their souls.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARDIVENT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ANCHORMAN win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LILA 
DEANE beat HOO BOY and HOO BOY lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ARDIVENT may be getting bland, as BROTHER JEROME stays 
top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ARDIVENT?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  WOE TO WHITECHAPEL was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks 
like FANDILS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you 
ask me.  Hmph.  ANCHORMAN was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  
Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Congrats to our own Brother Jerome for pulling out yet another close DM defense.  We

Brother Jerome

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

Born of the Dark -- As opposed to? -- Katerina Collin

Elmo -- Why is your tongue deadly?  Is its deadliness the reason for your general

finding out. -- Mollie Scot

Rosebud -- Egad, woman!  You're simply too tall.  I couldn't bean you with a crumpet
if I tried! -- Bingo Little

This Findiellisthin, Licensed Financial Scribe, claims to be Trustworthy, but how do

That's a very reasonable request.  If he's so great as a Financial Scribe, why is he
working in the arena? -- Marci Foote

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!
