                             Notes from the arena champ.

Blood and Saarveghal parts everywhere...
Hmmm....Not tourney prepping....
Oops....

And to think I was having difficulty keeping Reaper's head in the game.

That is not dead which can eternal lie.
And with strange aeons even death may die.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BEAST win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WACHICHU beat WHAT 
and WHAT lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to 
defend the throne, OF SEA AND WIND has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting 
that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BEAST takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and 
bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
TRICORUS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  DARK HORSEMEN the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like AMAZON ELITE 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, GRAPEFRUIT was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in TRICORUS to get a drink than The Blue 
Dolphin Inn!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be 
so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Answer of the week:  It's just a rash...

Answer of the week:  I'll call you...

Answer of the week:  Who down-challenges?

SAARVEGHAL -- Wow!!!  I guess I am a viscous bugger. -- Of Sea and Wind

JUBHAL -- Back at you... -- Mountain of Steel

Who -- You need to armor up that trick hit location you have. -- Everyone Burns

WARLOCK -- Thanks for the skills there... -- Y'HA-NTHLEI

BAROCHDAL -- That was kind of competitive?  Now I have to find a new dagger... --
Nyarlathotep

Y'ha -- It would seem we each benefited from that match... again we should meet,
though the outcome will be different, oh yes... -- Warlock

Habu -- Crafty!  Mayhap we will meet again. -- Priestess

Why -- not?  -- Beast

Answer of the Week:  Patience.

Looks like the violence level in the arena just went up a notch.  Welcome back,
Amazon Elite! -- Assurnasirbanipal, mgr. Fruits
P.S.  Please don't tell me you're back to continue a silly Blood War declared so long
ago!  That is all I don't need, Head hunting women with a taste for fruit, sweet or
sour.

Jorja -- Sadness.  You should have graduated her as soon as she got the PPs, but
alas, the commission refused on account of silly things called ratings. -- Assur

Most challenged warrior, Grapefruit, in more ways than one...  Be kind!

Of Sea and Wind -- You know, that was really unnecessary. -- Ghost of Saarveghal

Nyarlathotep -- Out of chaos cometh an Invite?  I can go with that. -- Barochdal

Mountain of Steel -- We need to get some miners in here, what a resource! -- Jubhal

Phaedra -- I didn't expect to one-shot you.  Surely you can do better?  Just... a
little rusty, maybe? -- Mahaghal
P.S.  Not that you look rusty.  In fact, you look FINE.

Osksi Noble?  Bah. -- Glador O'Hare

Answer of the Week:  Wipe the hard drive and we'll start from scratch.

Assur -- Yeah, been there, cussed at that.  Such as when I saw that Saarveghal died
this time.  Bummer. -- Jorja

Barochdal's details on request. -- Jorja

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
