                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings North Forkians!  Or is it Double Xers...soon to be SCOMMSers, I'm sure.
Whatever you may be called, I send you greetings and well wishes.

Not much to say.  Good luck at the tournament to those who are entering.  I will
fighting in my second Champions tournament with hopes of picking up my third TV,
hopefully a TC.  I did well at 21 FE, so here is hoping that 30 FE is the magic
number I need it to be.  It didn't work out so well for my late brother Kill*Switch,
but this is a new day...hopefully.

Anyway, the throne is up for grabs this turn because I'm sitting on 30 FE right now
and the tourney runs after this arena.  Luck to all of you who thought you would be
taking a shot at me for this chair.

Duelmaster Smokescreen

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DOUBLE-X!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  I have begun to suspect trickery on 
the part of LOST SOULS.  How else weeks like this one's 3-2-0?  How else the sudden 
move to 13th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
RAPTOR's team record!  A 2-2-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 16th place ranking.  
Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which THE OPERA managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  SISTER MARY SUEELLEN caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested RAZOR and was 
awarded 37 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NIKKO put 
down DAVID WEST, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
his absence and inability to defend the throne, SMOKESCREEN has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of SISTER MARY SUEELLEN, for with hers 
arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  
A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall 
perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in DOUBLE-X these days is OF WOLF AND MAN.  At least, most blades in 
town are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild 
it was that spent the better part of last week avoiding OF WOLF AND MAN.  Indeed it 
was OLD HABITS.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after JACK & JILL.  Watch your back!  I can not but 
mention with disdain the name of SISTER MARYJANE who this week posted a challenge to 
a warrior a full 11 points below in the rankings.  I thought SISTER MARYJANE showed 
great skill and promise when she beat DAVID.  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!  Look no more for BEAR AWARE in the arena or on the 
streets of DOUBLE-X.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 
7-8-0.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen men cut down in their prime.  
This week LOST SOULS must mourn the loss of 11-7-2 RAZOR to OLD HABITS.  The 
warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past 
week JOAN OF ARC, at 4-7-0, departed DOUBLE-X forever.  My hearty congratulations 
SMOKEY BEAR, for thy revenge upon WINKIE, 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!   
     The girls are as pretty in DOUBLE-X as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Horus -- Glad to see ya back!!!  I 'member ya, and all the help you provided.  Too
bad Phat-Phat ain't still around, or we'd have fun picking on him.  Hell...I think
the only one still playing from the "Manic Union" is Goat...and he's relatively quiet
these days.  Anyway...thanks for providing the address.  I'll be sending you a nice
phat (fat...pun intended) package with some info I think might help. -- Baphomet,
mgr. Knights Templar

SCOMSSers -- Well done.  A nice, solid move forward.  Driving steadily towards the
finish.... -- Oz The All Thankful

Father O -- I understand Sister Mary-Beth being killed by The Bartender, but Sister
Mary-Kate was disposed of by Putrid Patrick?  Didn't she say her prayers? -- Oz The
All Facetious

A Darque Duelmaster?  Again?  Let there be light! -- Oz The All Praising

Hammer -- The Turf War Tuffies DO enjoy beating your stable whenever they can!  Of
course.  A Hammer a day keeps the blacksmith away, etc, etc.  (wink) -- Oz The All
Fun-Loving

Momba -- You old snake-in-the-grass!  Your hiss is grass! -- Nikko

Fratsfa Slave -- Gee, did I do THAT?!  Little old me? -- Winkie

Sister Mary Sueellen -- I must admit that I took great pleasure in that act.  Oh, I
can see that you truly know how to handle a wand, you devil, you.  Yes you do. --
Magic Wand

Suculant -- Patience is a virtue, they say.  What do you think? -- BOQ

Good luck to all in the Mailer.  May all you non-SCOMSSers go 7-3. -- OZ The All
Hopeful

-- Oz The All Jolly

My Sleep -- Your vicious subduing of Justice For All seems unpatriotic.  What were
you thinking? -- Oz The All Interested

Jethro -- How could you let Fidelio beat you?  Embarrassing....  Perhaps you should

coach? -- Oz The All Puzzled

Redemtion -- An education paid for with blood is never forgotten. -- Owlin the Wise

SCOMMS -- Looking good down the stretch.  Unfortunately, I'm going to sit out 2 again
this turn for tourney timing.  Looks like I have enough reward miles to get 2 return
tickets to the FtF in Jan, so odds of all the SCOMMS showing is getting better bit by
bit. -- Crip

Winkie -- You Beast.  Did Oz acquire your from Mannequin in a trade for future first
round draft picks? -- The gang at the Flush

Razor -- We must say we were surprised at your rating.  Knowing your manager, we
would have thought you'd be further ahead of the curve than that. -- Jack & Jill

In the Grip Of Eryx -- Who is Eryx?  Why does he grip the bat so hard?  Should make
him easy to strike out. -- Bullpen Ace

I believe. -- Tempus

Horus One Eye -- Welcome back.  I only wish I had charts to share...maybe after the
FTF in January. -- Coyote
P.S.  Maybe if I had them, I would do better....

Smokescreen -- Oowch!!  I guess I didn't dress well for that dance.  Congratulations.
-- Tempus

Question -- If a warrior in the stands says "Brilliant" at the end of your fight does
that have anything to do with finding your favorite weapon or off. number?  Always
wanted to know that, so let's hear from you mega managers--Oz, Crip--'cuz I'm out
celebrating the Rockies win!! -- Coyote

All -- I've finally got my ducks in a row, and my Bimbo Brigade 7 is on the sands.
But, alas, I must work from memory only.  Please, somebody send me the basic charts
and info, so I can make a good showing.  Good luck to everybody, but not too much.
-- Horus One-Eye

All -- Here we come! -- Bimbo Brigade
