                             Notes from the arena champ.

Not much to say other than I'm close to graduating.  If I survive this next turn and 
gain 1 pp then I will get my invite.  Once again I'm going after Ten Tricks.  Sorry, 
Crip, but I'm something special that Spirit wants to get immortal.  Let's hope I 
survive. Until next turn!

                                          -- Lil Johnny

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in FREEDOM FRIES LAND this turn, and 
let's start with a look at some of the teams.  I want to know who's buying the drinks 
for who tonight at The Warty Toad, seeing as THE HEATHENS' 15-28-2 has earned them 
5th place in the ranks.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for ROYAL FLUSH, whose 2-3-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 13th.  
The SERPENTS HOLD 200 guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  TEN TRICK'S EX has lost 
to YRSA, falling 13 points, while helping make ROYAL FLUSH a 2-3-0 turn.  QUEEN OF 
THE SOUTH challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone D.A. 
REJECTS' warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, LIL JOHNNY kept ROYAL 
FLUSH's warrior, QUEEN OF THE SOUTH, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty 
Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the LAND OF OZ 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on FREEDOM FRIES LAND, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided LAND OF OZ stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was BIG LAKE GROOVE.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that CRONUS 
from WHITE SHADOW was FREEDOM FRIES LAND's most challenged warrior this turn.  I 
don't know about you, but EGG NOGGIN challenging down 21 points to JOMSVIKINGS' 
GAUTREK, is not really worthy of MYSTIC ORC FEAST.  We're not surprised to hear that 
EGG NOGGIN won victory over GAUTREK, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why 
MYSTIC ORC FEAST made such a challenge.  In a brave attempt, CYCLONUS from DARQUE 
FORCES challenged up 20 points to fight ROOK from the SERPENTS HOLD 200 stable.  
CYCLONUS perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he overcame ROOK and ended up with 
56 recognition points.  BRAINOR of THE HEATHENS had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 15 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought BRAINOR showed 
great skill and promise when he overcame CRAZY FOO.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Congratulations go out to WHITE 
SHADOW, with ORESTES revenging a bloodfeud against CONSTANCE of GARDEN STEWARDESS.  
Is it really true that FREEDOM FRIES LAND has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, FREEDOM FRIES LAND, the taverns have old wine, and young 
serving girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in FREEDOM 
FRIES LAND and I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises 
and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Congrats again to Lil Johnny. What a Duelmaster. -- Oz The All Jealous
P.S. Enjoyed your DM Column. Often a Duelmaster has no place to challenge, but down. 
Even in Andorian arenas that is the accepted practice; indeed, it is an honor to be 
challenged by the Duelmaster.

Turf Wars are coming. Turf Wars are coming Turf .............................. -- Oz 
The All Excited

Fox, gotcha! -- Crystal Ball

What?! I downchallenged? No way! How? Oz will kill me! Mea Culpa. -- Crystal Ball

Bugs, I just love raw bunny for breakfast. -- Lion

Den? Den? Is that you? Show me some moves? Nice. I didn't now you knew any moves. I am 
flabbergasted. -- Oz The All Surprised

Steve Kornacki, yep. You got me. With moves as slow and boring and misleading as your 
network. Your boss should be proud. -- Golden Cap

Blinding Man, thanks for showing me YOUR moves. They were quite funny. Is that the one 
move Den knows also? How cute and funny. And typical. Thanks though, for the easy no-
sweat win. -- Munchkin

Health. Humility. Honor. -- Oz The All Motivating
P.S. And FTFs and Turf Wars and ..................................

Master Fox, "bad skills"? There are really no bad skills. But there are good skills, 
which are the ones most relevant to the style. When a striker learns parry or a 
slasher learns defensive, those might never be used. But when a striker learns decise 
or a slasher learns attack, well, now ..... Hence, while any style can use any skill, 
some are just "gooder" for the style than others. So, yes, a defensive can always use 
a little decise, just not so much as defense or parry or riposte or ... And pikers 
need all the skills they can get as they start with the lowest base. That can make it 
difficult for them at all levels, unless they are really optimally designed and 
hopefully blessed. Which makes pikers more fun. Real Men Run Pikers. -- Oz The All

Clan Kitfox -- Please don't scramble me on the bloodfeud. -- Egg Noggin

Rook -- Almost, almost, almost. -- Ala Mode

YRSA -- You were one shot from killing me.  Lucky me. -- Diaper Leek

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
