                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, what do I see?  A WarHammer on the throne again!  I have also received my
invite to the Isle.  As is the traditional custom here in North Fork, here are my
stats:

I am an AB, 14(1)-9(3)-8-15-17(1)-9-19(2), Expert in riposte, Master in attack,
Expert in defense, naturally adept with the short spear, with a low/low and learn
attack.  Always figured the QS was my weapon...oh well.

Hope my replacement does as well as I.

                                          -- Tempus

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to THE BEAR'S PAW, as they are pushed from the coveted 
top team spot by the ROYAL FLUSH stable.  Coming up with a solid 1-1-0 outing, DOK 
SIK KILLAS has advanced 6 places in the rankings.  It looks like the guys(?) at ROYAL 
FLUSH had a good week as they went 5-0-1 to put them in 1st place.  I guess steroids 
help!  Hey everybody, watch out for BULLPEN ACE, who flew up 27 points in the 
rankings after mashing CYANIDE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  BARBARINO lost to SUCULANT and 
drops 11 points.  It's a proud day for the DOK SIK KILLAS stable, as their warrior, 
HANTA, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but 
an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad ROYAL FLUSH?  Big bad ROYAL FLUSH.  Big bad ROYAL FLUSH.  SCOMSS SWAMP's 
afraid of the big bad ROYAL FLUSH.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause THE SERPENTS beats feet every time ROYAL FLUSH 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
BARBARINO, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  NESSMAN defied all odds and slew FABULOUS FATHER M in the 
Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as FABULOUS FATHER M's meat 
is notoriously tough.  This week 4-10-2 MALT was sent to the Dark Arena.  I know a 
lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of this.  Carrion Bird 
Cinematic Humor:  CYANIDE II:  THE REMATCH.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try 
and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you 
enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be 
leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

Chase a.k.a. SwineTiger

2 February 2008
ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with
appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
