     "It's infamous!"  Ardane, spy reporter for Andorak, scowled and drew back his
arm to throw his goblet through the window at the crowd outside.  Then paused to
drain the contents before resuming the about-to-throw-it position.
     "Now, now, it isn't THAT bad."  Desiree of Darkholm, always the voice of sweet
reason at these meetings, laid a hand on his, smiled, and guided the goblet back to
the table.  "It's just a little mistake, you know."
     "Ha!"  Debby Tonte of Free Blades stabbed viciously into her drink with an
umbrella.  "That's easy for YOU to say.  The Delarquans aren't complaining."
     "Of course not."  Galen of Talahya looked faintly envious as she pulled a chunk
of pineapple out of her glass and began to nibble it.  "That's because the Delarquans
are THE Masters of Kung-Fu."
     "You think some managers are complaining," Olaf Modeen said, "you should hear
what the GLADIATORS are saying.  All these rumors about the Aimed Blows having
'special enhancements'..." he shook his head.  "I know it isn't true, you know it
isn't true, the top managers know it isn't true--"
     "Of course it isn't true!"  Ketchum, spy reporter for Crysalis, matched scowls
with Ardane and said, "If ANY one style was going to get a special enhancement, it
should be--"
     "Not now, Ketch," Olaf said.  "Nobody gets, nobody has gotten, nobody WILL get,
special enhancements.  That's always been the rule, and we all know how the Greywand
hates changes.  The real problem--"
     "Try telling that to some of the managers," Debby muttered, peering into her
glass for more fruit.  "They don't want to hear it.  Every time I turn around, some
manager is claiming that someone got a special change and, you know, HE didn't and
it's all unfair."
     "The REAL problem," Olaf said firmly, over-riding her voice, "is explaining to
all the second-rate Aimed Blows why they haven't received any of these 'special
enhancements' they keep hearing about."
     "There aren't any special enhancements," Ardane growled.  "None.  Just managers
who noticed that the Kung-Fu Master is a lot more dangerous than anyone expected, and
have put YEARS into the study of Kung-Fu and learned how to really USE it for their
own gladiators."
     "Saved a lot on weapons, too," Ketchum murmured.
     "But people keep complaining," Debby Tonte said.  She fished one last piece of
fruit out of her glass and stared at it dubiously.
     "There WERE no special enhancements," Olaf said.  "There ARE no special
enhancements.  There WILL BE no special enhancements.  It's all a matter of deep
study and skilled management."
     "Like anyone's going to believe that!"
     "They have no choice," Ketchum said.  "If no 'special enhancements' were given
out, then none can be taken back.  It is the way it is.  What's the point in
complaining because the sun rises in the east?"

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Once again I'm on the throne.  Look, my boss says if we get the throne we defend it.
We are not blocking for anybody or trying to spoil anything.

Anyway, Cup of Toe, nice challenge.  It says a lot about your skills, Mr. Twinkle
Toes.  That neck shot hella hurt.

All right, being the Duelmaster is really fun, so eat your vegetables and study hard
in school.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DOUBLE-X games.  I have begun to suspect trickery on 
the part of DESOLATE ONES.  How else weeks like this one's 4-1-0?  How else the 
sudden move to 2nd team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
RONIN's team record!  A 3-2-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 5th place ranking.  I 
have begun to suspect trickery on the part of THE OPERA.  How else weeks like this 
one's 5-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 7th team?  The proverbial rising comet can 
only hope to compare with INDIFFERENCE's team record!  A 4-1-0 week and now a firm 
grasp on a 12th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of 
CHEERS.  How else weeks like this one's 4-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 17th 
team?  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you 
fall.  This week THE LAST RESORT went 3-2-0 and fell 11 notches into 23rd!  The 
proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with MALICE KEEPERS' team record!  A 
2-3-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 26th place ranking.  JGW PERISHABLE bore the 
brunt of major assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 37th position 
as the result of going 1-3-0!  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record which NATURAL 
B. KILLERS 2 managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  ITHYIC THING caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
she skillfully bested OBLIVION and was awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, ITHYIC THING put down OBLIVION, causing him to lose 13 
points of recognition in the process.  This time out PIZZA PIE PARTY made its bid for 
the throne as it challenged OPAI in an all out contest of skill for possession of the 
title!  Although PIZZA PIE PARTY made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple 
the reign of victorious OPAI.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
DOUBLE-X seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DOUBLE-X "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in DOUBLE-X these days is INDIFFERENCE.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of OF WOLF AND MAN last week.  Busy avoiding INDIFFERENCE?  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  SAMGLANT take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in DOUBLE-X.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games 
this week, it seems that DRAMA QUEEN posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized ROISIN DUBH.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand DRAMA QUEEN was 
subdued by ROISIN DUBH.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can 
not but mention with disdain the name of SISTER SLEDGE who this week posted a 
challenge to a warrior a full 12 points below in the rankings.  I thought SISTER 
SLEDGE showed great skill and promise when she won victory over RHIANNON.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  DON KING has sworn to take up religion upon living 
to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Look 
no more for CRYPT ANGEL in the arena or on the streets of DOUBLE-X.  Hers fate was 
sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 10-11-1.  The warrior's path is 
harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week ICHORID, at 
12-11-1, departed DOUBLE-X forever.  Cruelly, COURT JESTER of EMPIRE RISING has slain 
the lesser ranked ANTOINE L'JOI.  Word already flies around town that KNIGHTS TEMPLAR 
plans a bloodfeud!  This week's duel proved deadly to ICHORID as he fell to the more 
renowned warrior, MY SLEEP.  How will SALEM'S LOT find revenge?  Many townsmen have 
begin to remark over the fact that after one more round of duels KNIGHTS TEMPLAR's 
Bloodfeud against COURT JESTER will have expired.  My hearty congratulations LAST 
CALL, for thy revenge upon PILSNER, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will 
know better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Kat -- Thanks.  Yes, indeed, we SCOMSSers are strategizing.  (Not colluding like they
do in the FONZ, but rather true, solid strategizing.) -- Oz The All Thinking

No personals?  No personals last time?  The Commission must have sent up a hot air
balloon with my Hal confirmed packet.  Shucks! -- Oz The All Frustrated

Medee -- Humbug wants to know how all-embarrassing it must have been for your manager
Manager to have challenged and lost with a very heavily favorable style-challenge-
match?  He feels for you, Medee.  (In his own "Bah, Humbug" fashion.) -- Oz The All
Helpful

Hanta -- You da man, but I da winner! -- BOQ

Flesh Hunter -- We carnivores enjoy the likes of you flesh guys.  We do! -- King Of
Beasts

David -- And that day Goliath slew the non-Philistine....  (Chuckling loudly) -- Miss
Gulch

Last Call -- You showed me some magic.  Salute. -- Magic Wand

Opai -- Congratulations Duelmaster!  Salute. -- Oz The All Envious

Wretch -- Thank you for the comment.  (And yes we ARE quite capable of the tripping
and self-flagellating of which you asked.  Quite.) -- Oz The All Helpful

SCOMSSers -- Well done!  Very well done just before!  Solidly done last.  Time to
rock and roll. -- Oz The All proud (and doin' the twist)

Mad Max -- Welcome.  This is cool! -- Oz The All Excited
P.S.  The Creepster says Mid Med Mod Madderooski Maxeronious!

In the Grip of Eryx -- I didn't think anyone of your kind would be able to rip me so
easily.  That was a very impressive win on your part.  Well done! -- Anti (tw)

Queen of Tarts -- See, even us runts can hit hard every once in a while.  Wait a
second...what happened to my ponytail???? -- Soultaker (tw)

Jedbull -- Yankers WANKERS Yabba Daba HONKERS!!!!!  Unbelievably bested my foot!  I
yippee yahoo snickerdoodles whipped you!  Yet another win for the Creep, Creep,
CREEP, CREEPSTER!!!!! -- the Creepster (tw)

Salty Dog -- Thanks for the skills.  The boss is mentioning something to me about the
Apprentices and Face to Face.  I don't know what he's talking about however. --
Slugbait (tw)

Temp Ed. -- Sorry about that.  I had no idea my ads were so screwy.  I certainly hope
I have fixed the issues. -- Mad Max

     Probably, as they look okay to me this time around. -- Ed., sort of back on the
     job

Rumor of the Month -- Mannequin was too busy polishing Daydream Believer's multiple
TC trophies that he forgot to send in any warrior to the mail in.  He started to ask
Soultaker to help him out but he was blinded and confused from the gleam off of
Souly's dome.  Managers everywhere are rejoicing!

Drake -- Great names for your warriors, btw! -- Mad Max

Kon -- Congratulations on killing Galius...13(1)-9-13-15-7-17-11; VL END/GD DMG; +4
INI AND +3 DER...not exactly ADM material, so it didn't matter that much...hope you
enjoy the next round...'cause one of my warriors is coming again...BTW...I know
you've been sandbagging Court Jester.... -- Baphomet (who fears nothing)

Court Jester -- You've managed to kill 2 of my sword-brothers in a contest at arms.
Now let's see if you can make me take the Death Plunge...I'll bet you don't!!! --
Antoine L'Joi

Mr. Tremendous -- Ah, mon chere!  'Twas a great fight, but alas...I'm built for the
long haul...striking isn't it? -- Michele Clough

The Ron -- Excellent fight between similar styles.... -- Roger L'Beau

Ufalin -- Amazing, simply amazing!!! -- Antoine L'Joi

Swamp Syndicate -- Alas, I score a 3-1-0 and a winning record for the turn and still
come up on the negative style for the turn...dang...Dang...DANG!!! -- Baphomet
P.S.  I've started a thread on my site for our alliance to trade information...
www.freepowerboards.com/baphometd2.  This should help us with the
communication...it's passworded so you'll have to email me to get the password....

Opai -- Ok then let's hear you pronounce the last 12 letters, as we all know it's the
ending that's most important -- Drama Queen

Mad Max -- Welcome to North Fork.  I'm not sure we've ever met in the arena before.
-- Crip, mgr. of Royal Flush

North Fork -- Don King, one time Duelmaster of North Fork, is off to retirement in a
far off land to manage a few of Crip's Crap in Home Guard.  His final ringside
appearance shows a 21-8-7-21-8-8-11 with Masters in Attack, Decise and Riposte, and
Advanced Expert in Initiative.   He was -2 in Init, but +2 in Rip.  He likes the
Broadsword, with a moderate/moderate rhythm, and has a tendency to learn riposte
skills. -- Crip

Red Devil -- Thanks for the send off.  Have to figure out a new way to keep you away
from Jack and Queen. -- Don King

Suculant -- You are lasting longer at least. -- Jack and Jill

Orc Plague -- Somehow, methinks on your challenge, the results may be a little
different. -- Drama Queen

Bexar -- That's 2 for 2.  With my record, you'd think you were in hibernation. -- Ten
Is Raquet

Party Trap -- You seem to have an extra Trapy Part. -- Bullpen Ace

Jugglenought -- That fight pretty much went exactly how I wanted with the exception
of my uncontrolled swings.  At the end of minute one I thought I had you, but it was
not to be.  See you soon. -- Asylum

Woody -- Man, I didn't even hit where I was aiming half the time, but I will take it.
-- Samglant

Swamp Storm -- I think I found my favorite weapon! -- Fade to Black

Siege Best -- Man, at least teach me something. -- Justice for All

My Pillow -- That went well! -- Blackened

Bezubub -- You're right.  That was fun. -- Blunder Woman
P.S.  So, which circle of Hell do you rule?  The circle of eternal bad musicals?

All -- If at first you don't succeed, pay someone else to do it.

Xoan -- So, is your team 20/20? -- Drake

Liam -- But how do you expect Debbie to work on her tan when she visits here in the
winter? -- Drake

Drama Queen -- Entree!  ENTREE!  The fact that I was sitting in a restaurant at the
time should have been a clue. -- Da Ting

Mad Max -- Greetings.  You know, most people would consider therapy to help them deal
with their aggression.  Of course, your method has its merits. -- Drake

Kon -- Eh, we just like to take a day off ever now and then.  After all, if you kill
everyone, who is there left to kill? -- Drake

Asp -- Bulk out of poetry now.  -- The Rampaging Bulk

Hellith -- I think your manager may want to think about sending someone else.  Unless
he's trying to use me as a Dark Arena substitute. -- Blunder Woman

Black Thunder -- I like you much better than DQ. -- Da Ting

Captain Kirk -- HAHA, that tickled!  Perhaps we should call you Captain Feathersword?
-- Puddy

Madame Butterfly -- I was under the impression that Butterflies who crumple to their
knees were supposed to yield.  Customary, you know? -- Barbarino

Arsenic -- I buck conventional wisdom by entering the arena with a WAR FLAIL (no, I
am NOT crazy--I just lack common sense).  The least you could do was actually let me
take a swing or two at you with it.  The only time I attempted to use it at all was
to parry and you BROKE it.  Serves you right that you lost after I punched you out.
Do a few more sit-ups--you seemed to be a little soft in the belly. -- Jethro

Fidelio -- As a patron of the arts, I salute you!  (You armor clad slug!!) -- Niles

Manager/Impresario -- SCOMSS might consider selling the Dark Arena naming rights for
the right price.... -- Mannequin

Baphomet -- I warn you that I'm prepared for Galius' challenge and you still send
him?!?  You are I fool!  I can see now why your team has such a terrible record.  I
guess now you'll try Roger L'Beau with a moderate attack huh?  I'll be ready, though
you should just cut your losses before I take out your whole team. -- DK Kon
P.S.  If you were going to be lazy about running this contest you should have let
someone else do it--you need to make everyone aware of who scored what exactly, who
the champions are, etc.  I'm thinking you're the worst host I've ever seen!

Wretch -- You're not even on my radar yet, so we'll keep things friendly for now.  I
was merely commenting on your alliances unique avoids and nothing more. -- DK Kon

DK Goat -- Way to hold the alliance up this turn, Brother!  I think with my killing
another of Baphomet's scrubs I managed to stay on the plus side this turn, though
just barely!  I'll step it up though you know that!  Hopefully, we can pull a couple
TC's or TV's out of the Mail-In as that would surely help!  Give my regards to the
deserving. -- DK Kon

Dark Knights -- We need to step it up!  One or two of us doing good each turn is not
going to win this thing--we ALL need to step up every turn! -- DK Kon

DK Dok Sik -- How are your Desolate Flowers doing?  I see Virus D'fella made it to
CFH and Abraxis.  Their puerile comments have always come full circle.  Keep sending
your energy of decay to all enemies of the Desolate Empire.  Remember, half the
battle  is your propaganda of festering, runny, pus ridden gangrenous words of
infection.  So, spread the word, in the meantime...send me one of your cure all
potions, a nasty drip (runny nose) was caught while watering one of the flowers...
(Goat looking guilty).  Continue to power to the front. -- DK Goat

DK Wasby -- Diplo was well received.  Your new team is YOU!!  Will send styles every
two turns.  This email really has me in a bind.  I suggest the Desolate Empire
sponsor the next Turf War.  Get back on suggestion (all DK).  Give it to them Mack
Daddy. -- DK Goat

DK Blackstorm -- Greetings wise one.  Info was sent to all DK.  Had to drop team in
81, mail service to slow for fast arena.  Waiting on replacement for Heathen.  His
boots will be hard to fill.  Heathen is in a monastery run by monks in India from
what I perceive from his letter (one letter every six months).  His major (world

knowledge) has taken all modern convenience from him.  Wow!  What dedication.  Food
is exotic (big beetles, goat eye soup).  He thinks that is funny.  His mail gets to
him by pigeon, cool!  I also sent a team to 82. -- DK Goat

Blademaster Kon -- Greetings Capt.  Your skill has brought a smile to this old goat.
I am out of my element when dealing with people that make a decision in the middle of
a contest that changes the format.  I have no email, I have no phone.  I live so far
off the broken trail, you must fly in or ride in on horseback (30 miles off the Rogue
River).  So, see if you can get with the powers that be and try and correct this.
Charge!! -- DK Goat

TWH -- I would like for the team scores to be posted in the newsletter every turn.
Hopefully, you can send the same info you post on your website (team scores) to RSI.
I am unable to acquire your efforts of scoring the contest, therefore I am unable to
challenge your scores.  If I must track all team scores hmm...why are you the host!
I know it is a lot of work, I would like to be able to also benefit from it.  Thank
you. -- DK Goat
P.S.  Problem with space....

CFH/Abraxis -- Since you both seem to be joined at the lips, (Goat laughing) and you
continue to talk out of your b...(Goat holding nose) I wonder why you ran when the
competition started to come our way?  We all were rookies at one time, you never quit
on trying to help the new guys and gals out.  So, save your explanation on your lack
of action concerning your old alliance mates.  I will always appreciate what you
(CFH) taught me.  Don't think that we will continue letting your statements go
unanswered.  As always the pups bark loudest when looking for secure shelter. -- DK
Goat
