                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Make that 15 (fifteen) consecutive DM Titles.  Any Commission that allows that
to happen should have to wallow in its own snot!  Yeah, I am good, but, what the
heck!
     So rather than to discuss the incompetance of The Commission's ways on Lord
Protectorship, I will discuss the positive things said Commission has to offer.  All
The Consortium is excited about these upcoming events:
Turf Wars -- a year long arena event in North Fork DM47 (35ish manager participants)
King Of Primus event -- starting in October at a Primus arena near you
Mail In Tournament -- Halloween?  All Soul's Day?  The dead can fight for life.
Face To Face Tournament -- January in Tempe (glad it is NOT Minnesota in Jan!)
     Life stares you in the face.  Take advantage of it and enjoy!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SNOWBOUND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  HEART OF GLASS caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SHOBART TEEGUE and was 
awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GARUTH 
HOLM put down NEFARA, causing her to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  
Not for nothing has 4-H in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the 
old women in SNOWBOUND seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators? 
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SNOWBOUND "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  SNOWBOUND, city of gladiators!  Mighty among 
the names of thy guilds is PUBLIC ENEMY, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of LIFE IMPACTS are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after SAXAPHONE.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I must report the passing of LADIRO MAELS, veteran of many duels.  
11-24-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in SNOWBOUND.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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

Shiver Me Timbers and Swamp Donkey -- Smitty asked me to state that he is very
impressed with your bloodfeud win.  Well done.  The avengement of a fallen friend is
dictated at all odds.  Kudos to you. -- The Life Impacts Publicist

Heart Of Glass -- Perhaps a heart of something else would have done you better in
this fight.  I thought those catcalls and the thrown rotten cabbage was a little much
of the fans, didn't you? -- Circle K

Garuth Holm -- Some days I merely wonder where that skill in me came from.  I am
pretty sure I did not put it there.  But, I will celebrate anyway, and can celebrate
with the best of 'em. -- Quality

Ladiero Maels -- Well, at least it wasn't that 4-H tank again?  Two, four, six,
eight, what do we appreciate? Numbers, numbers, numbers! -- Math

Moldar Nay -- I want you to know that you are just as much fun as Ladiero. -- 4-H

Swamp Donkey -- My wail was simply not enough to overcome your bray.  I salute you as
my better.  (this time.) -- Saxophone

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Smitty (said in Smitty lingo reads something like--
y'all hasta feelin gud, bein nahce, 'n doin' gud.)

4-H -- Depends on what you have to say. -- Moldar Nay and Ladiro Maels
P.S.  And yes, we appreciate the difficulty of coming up with something new to say
time after time after time.  So... graduate already!

4-H -- Graduate already! -- Moldar Nay
P.S.  The reason the crowd was pleased is because they like to watch ME.

Math -- It's unnatural to force your subject on helpless young people.  It's WRONG.
-- Ladiro Maels

Synergy -- I didn't know that! -- Shobart Teegue

Quality -- True quality would be ME.  I may be, officially, a golem, but I am a real
person.  You're a THING. -- Garuth Holm
P.S.  No offense to cats.

Space Monkey -- Oh, good!  I was expecting my area of greatest expertise (losing) to
determine the outcome of that fight.  I don't mind AT ALL getting the only win. --
Jenna Kuul
