                             Notes from the arena champ.

And I think we can finally put to rest the question, "What is the best Fruit of them 
all?"  Now we will see whether Hannah wants to have anything to do with me and my 
winning ways.  He calls it scumming; I call it winning.  I wish I could tell you that 
I was so good that I brought home the Champion TC to our arena, but alas, that is not 
the case.  A couple of warriors got lucky wins against me and stopped my run.  I was 
really close, though!  And it is a good thing it didn't happen, too, or Assur would 
not being have fruits in his diet, but Humiliation Pie.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRICORUS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  DARK HORSEMEN had cause to celebrate, after 
DELANGE got 8 points by beating CULT MEMBER.  HARZOGH certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to BELLONA and losing 5 points in the process!  
Duelmaster APPLE from FRUITS is going for the gold, as he Bloodfeuded AMAZON ELITE's 
HANNAH.  Ooh, the excitement!  HANNAH found out that TRICORUS isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in TRICORUS is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and HANNAH is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't AMAZON ELITE 
proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see FRUITS retaliate 
against AMAZON ELITE in bloodfeud!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for TRICORUS?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

To the Manager of Amazon Elite -- Obviously, you have no clue who I am.  I assure you 
that I care not one whit about winning or losing.  I play this game for fun.  I am 
the manager that ran a warrior to 0-72.  I am a manager who has some 30 basher 
graduates; most are active in ADM.  I ran in this arena before with the Mighty Morals 
team and graduated 2 bashers with losing records.  The comments by the warriors I've 
been running are Role Playing, as are most of the comments I'll make in the personals 
-- this one NOT included.  Obviously, you were very upset to lose to Orange in the 
way that you did and are upset with the warriors I'm playing to cause the comments 
that came last turn.  I apologize right now if I've taken away from your enjoyment of 
this game.  Such was not my intention!  I write personals to add a little color and 
flavor to the arena.  I mean nothing personal by my comments and I hope that by 
killing Orange you regained that enjoyment to the full!  Certainly, it was fitting 
that you should get that kill!  I intend to have Apple Bloodfeud for 4 turns with a 
complete scum strategy.  You are welcome to avoid, not run, and you may even ask me 
to not Bloodfeud (which I will happily stop as soon as I possibly can after you've 
asked, assuming I've successfully BF'd once).  The best way to reach me is 
assurnasir@yahoo.com or write a personal next turn.  I have had some fun with my TP's 
here.  Apple is a complete scum.  I did not run Orange as a scum and his fights can 
attest to that.  If I'd been interested only in winning, I would have been trying to 
scum Hannah with Orange and not using his normal strategy.  Orange is at least as 
good as Apple as a pure scum.  However, I had a lot more fun with what I did do.  
Since his Novices tourney, he has won 4 fights due to exhaustion (2 TP's, Venemous 
Concubine, and an AB -- the turn after the tourney).  He won one fight to a STK 
breaking his weapon and one shotting himself against Orange's off-hand shield.  The 
other 16 wins during that period came from Orange's attacks.  I've continued to run 
these two warriors because I've enjoyed them and I've had fun with the personals, 
pitting them against each other as much as the warriors in the arena.  I am going to 
consider this matter closed and again I apologize if I've taken away from your 
enjoyment of Duelmasters.  Such would never be my goal or intention.  The rest of the 
personals (and my DM column) should be taken as 'in game' personals.  And note that 
after Apple dies or graduates, this team will likely go away and I'll bring a new 
team of bashers here, though again, I'm only running the ones that I think I'll have 
fun with.  I will never activate the other 3 warriors on this team because they'd be 
no fun for me.  I don't even have their ID #'s with my DM stuff.  You can look for 
other warriors of mine later.  I intend to run Mighty Morals II, though that could 
change. -- Mikey, manager of Fruits

Hannah -- Looks like I had a rotten Orange after all!  11(1)-17-7-11(1)-21(1)-10-
11(1) -- TV'd Novices & Initiates.  Expert Attack, Advanced Expert Parry. -- 
Assurnasirbanipal

All -- YIIIIHAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!  One could hear the shouts of joy and celebration for 
blocks after Hannah 'viciously butchered' Orange.  It was a party like no other as 
Hannah danced spryly among the women of the Elite.  The Amazons are well known to 
have unique parties of their own for killing an arrogant male, so their manager kept 
his distance and allowed the Elite to have their fun.  But toward the end of the 
evening, he whet their appetite for blood by announcing that Hannah would be given 
the priveledge to attempt the same against Apple.

Fruits -- I want you to bring out all your fighters in order for the Elite to get 
more target practice.  The Amazons have expressed their desire in no uncertain terms 
to beat them down at every opportunity.

A-Keen Ms Kitty -- Wow, you elves, well, half-elves, are really sliph! -- Harzogh

Reality -- Frankly, I don't have much interest in that sort of thing. -- Kolvegh

The Embezzling Scribe is a golem?  That just goes to SHOW, you can't trust golems. --
