                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It was a pleasure to meet you, Madam Venusia, and I almost regret that I'm
graduating just as we get some interesting people joining us.  Almost.  It looks to
me like, win or lose, you'll take the title this time on points.  And you might win,
stranger things have happened.  Good luck!

                                      Samildar

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TROCAR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see NIGHTWING win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SLAVE-WARRIOR beat JOKER and JOKER lost 3 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, TROCAR may be getting bland, as SAMILDAR stays top dog 
in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, TROCAR?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was 
MOKAN of KIWI CONNECTION II this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have 
a belly laugh.  Heh heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through 
use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in TROCAR to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide

As a first match, that went well.  May they all be the same! -- Worzeel

     Some managers have attempted to send personals and columns to hal, and hal has
been refusing to acknowledge their content.  I don't know what hal's problem is,
specifically, but for best success, send PLAIN TEXT (dot txt) in the body of the
email.  Not attachments.  Thank you. -- the Editor

POSTED:  Arena recruitment effort, DM 32, Arvat -- seeing as our arena Participation
has dwindled in recent months, we're offering the following incentive to any new
teams looking for a new home arena.  We will GIVE a Free Rollup to any manager
willing to agree to fight in Arvat for the next 10 turns.  We have a number of VERY
solid arena teams stockpiled, and while we don't promise tournament godlings, we are
certain we can come up with teams with 3, 4 or even 5 solid arena warriors to start
out with.
     In addition we'll honor any no-challenge requests by relatively new managers to
help you get off on the right foot.
     If interested, please contact the Devil Advocates via Diplo or contact
theDarkOne via IM on the www DOT reality DOT com site.  We will even give a choice of
teams available if requested.

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), free 
airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the tournament info 
sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
