                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greeting again my fellow Illisians,

     It is with great seasonal sorrow that I have to announce that Crip's Crap are
going on a hiatus again, for at least 6 months, to deal with some real life issues.
Hope to see you all again on our return, except for those Bashaholics that have been
bashing us up lately.

Chapel Rock
Duelmaster of Illis

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ILLIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CHAPEL ROCK was unseated 
this week as BASHAHOLICS ANON moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 
2-1-0 record for the round.  DILLIS RHIN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested TITUS PULLO and was awarded 14 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CANCER put down I'M POWERLESS, 
causing it to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Due to its absence and 
inability to defend the throne, NAZARETH has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail I'M A BASHER, Duelmaster of 
ILLIS!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ILLIS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  ILLIS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is NOT QUITE, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of BASHAHOLICS ANON 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.  CANCER take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in ILLIS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Crip -- Thanks for the best fight I've read in a long time.  Absolutely ridiculous.
See you on the sands again soon, I'm sure. -- Assur

Wise Old Wayne -- Perhaps you should be named Wise Old Stingy Wayne.  Don't you
realize I just need a couple skills to graduate?  Share some of your wisdom with the
less enlightened of us. -- I'm a Basher

Chagua Korbin -- I keep asking Assur when we can take names off the list, because the
longer I do this, the more people I must add to the list of -- Those I Hurt

Flaming Moe -- What?  I have nothing against setting fire to Moe, and Curly and the
other one, Larry?  Him too.  Set 'em all flaming.  But I'm not getting the connection
to the team name. -- Coco Nuttal
P.S.  Although too much Stooges WILL give anyone a horrible headache.

Stone Temple Pilot -- Probably you should stick to what you know and just fly stone
temples. -- Dillis Rhin

Margarita -- Ah!  This one we've heard of. -- Belitris
P.S.  Too much salt.
P.P.S.  Not to mention the worm.
