                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Is it getting HOT in here (this place IS a Greenhouse you know), or is it just
me I ask you?!!!  Zoom La Bouse... a valiant effort in a very difficult five
minutes... thank you for the opportunity to fight for the title of Fratsfa's fairest
warrior.  In fact... I enjoyed the contest so much, that I'm hopefully coming back
for seconds next turn.

Until next turn....
Fratsfa's hottest Slasher,

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly THE GREENHOUSE games.  Former top team THE ORDER was 
unseated this week as FLOWER GIRLS moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week FLOWER GIRLS went 4-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  CHAMP CHUMP caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested ONYX and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, CHAMP CHUMP put down ONYX, causing it to lose 13 points of 
recognition in the process.  Although AREOPOLITE made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious HOT STUFF.  Heed this!  A seer has warned 
that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just 
remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  THE GREENHOUSE, city of 
gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy guilds is PYROMANIA, a guild shunned and 
avoided by many in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of FLOWER GIRLS are 
catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the 
avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  ZOUM LA 
BOUSE take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in THE GREENHOUSE.  At the 
gambling halls I have started to bet money on 451 DEGREES.  He has got the courage it 
takes.  Witness his challenge this turn against DESPAIR!  Truth to tell, 451 DEGREES 
did not come out of the fight a winner, but he managed to capture much attention, 
gaining 3 in recognition.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, 
it seems that LADY MYSTIC posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
HATEFUL HASTA.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand LADY MYSTIC lost to 
HATEFUL HASTA.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  JULIO has the town astir with the news of its Dark Arena 
victory!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, 
better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

uh, Polite Beggar, it is NOT free, you know?  You have to pay for it or fight for it;
fortunately, I'm good at both.  (wink) -- Potent Pansy

451 Degrees -- I will admit you are hot!  Real hot!  But if you want the most out of
an experience with me (giggle), you have to last and last and last.  It makes for
such a grandiose finish!  Yeah, baby! -- Caustic Ccrocus

Tuscan Flame?!  Just what I needed?  Why couldn't it have been a Darkholm Flame or a
Freblade Flame, or even an Aradi Flame?  Oh, no; instead I get a fireball Tuscan
Flame who is done in seconds!  (sigh) -- Gloating Gardinia

Bandor's Shame -- Whew!  I thought you were gonna ruin my day with that big, big
weapon of yours.  Thanks for being so gentle.  (tee hee)  Let's do it again some
time.  Okay? -- Hateful Hasta

Come one, come all.  See you at The Flower Shoppe.  That's what my gals are all here
for. -- Lady Fern (hugs and kisses)

Hey, hey, hey!  Way to go CHAMP CHUMP, the Runner-Up in the Champion Class at The
Tempe Face.  Hubba, hubba.  You brought great acclaim to The Greenhouse Arena of
Fratsfa.  Luckily, Flower Girls' own WHACKING WILLOW smooth-talked her way to an ADM
TV.  Every little bit helps. -- Lady Fern

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --
Tripwire

     Found in Shadowspire and possibly belonging here?

Snowball -- Let's not abuse of the good things (a gallicism I guess !)... --
Areopolite

Torturing Tulip -- Two told me you were welcome to the small cottage he bought for
the delicious retired days ahead! -- LP

All -- I apologize for my absence form the last fight.  I had constructed a shrine to
my family and was singing their praises and lost track of time, for my family was a
large and noble one.  Rushing to the arena I was informed by the Arenamaster that my
paperwork was mislaid with no time to correct the error.  I can only hope that my
performance in this next battle will assuage your disaappointment. -- Glon's Pity

Lighter Fluid -- Someone really dislikes you or really likes me; either way I'm up
two.  But we do make a cute couple. -- Jazmina
