                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I just knew this was a town that could appreciate a good dog!

                                     Bully Boy

P.S.  A piece of good advice for you all, and there is no better advice than what you
can get from a dog (ignore the cats!):  Stretch all over, scratch anywhere that
itches, turn around three times, and take a nap.  This is very relaxing.  Try it!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly COLLUSION COVE games.  The proverbial rising comet can 
only hope to compare with DEATH STUDS XII's team record!  A 4-1-1 week and now a firm 
grasp on a 7th place ranking.  My praise to PASTAFARIANS for their 4-1-0 week this 
time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  HOWLER XIII 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE 
WITCH and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, PAULINE put down 911, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the 
process.  Not for nothing has BULLY BOY in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's 
throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to 
the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his 
armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  PASTAFARIANS is feared.  This much 
I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of PURE EVIL last week.  Busy avoiding PASTAFARIANS?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  MYSTIQUE take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in COLLUSION COVE.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of 
VENGANZA who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 13 points below in the 
rankings.  I thought VENGANZA showed great skill and promise when he bested GALWAY.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  LLUCKY DAY has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  
Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  ENIGMA XXV has the 
town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  Dark alleys may hide both 
secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep 
vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in COLLUSION COVE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

Be it known to all, especially to his TOGS Partner, Slugbait, that The Creepster
managed a perfect round last turn.  100%!  1-0.  He says to bring on the TOGS and the
colluding little guy, ponytail-less guy, combo. -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

Bully Boy?!  Bully Boy it just does not seem right that you are on top in Collusion
Cove.  It's like having The FONZ on top and what all. -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

Cork -- It was such a pleasure to thump your down-challenging butt!  It was just a
plain cleansing of the joint. -- Mr. Clean

Hey diddle diddlyronious doo dah day! -- The Creepster

Clark Kent:  "Did he just say have a good day to everyone?"
The Crazy Creeps Scribe:  "Maybe"

FONZ = Floundering Oysters Nicely Zoned

We would say congratulations to Death Studs VII (Bloodlust CCVI 11-3-0 TV in the
Freshman Mailer) and to Death Studs XII (Razor XXV TV in the Initiate Mailer), but we
would not like to see the Stud head balloon smaller, so we won't. -- The Crazy Creeps
Scribe et al

BTW, Manager, Creepy wants to know why you could not Dead TV (Storm Fire--Superior
Forces Dead Adepts) when you partnered with him, you Creep! -- The Crazy Creeps
Scribe

Crazy Creeps Scribe -- Mac was actually going to be named Tiny Mac out of deference
to my massive Studness.  But I was gracious and allowed the "Tiny" prefix to be
removed so as to not make him feel any tinier than he already is.  My generosity is
without limits, yea verily. -- Death Stud

FONZ = Foxy Obtuse Natty Zoomers

Mr. Oblivious -- Yes, I was talking to you. -- Death Stud

Haunt -- Welcome! -- Death Studs

Aradi -- Come now, boys, I can't believe that we let Technogeek come back from
retirement to run away with a sick 13-2 record in the last 15 turns.  Have some
pride, men.  Losses and deaths, that's what he needs.  Santa said so. -- Studs

     Santa has changed since my day. -- Ed.

Welcome, welcome to the new teams!  It is very good to have you here and I presume
that you are getting ready for the upcoming glorious TOGS.  Please heed my advice to
protect your head and genitals in the arena as there may be unscrupulous folks who
would revel in your misery upon killing your warriors (*cough*Mannequin*cough).  Get
yourself a TOGS partner if you don't already have one and prepare to fight it out on
the sands and in the spotlights with some of the strongest competition and sickest
minds in all of Alastari.  We look forward to your contributions. -- Death Stud,
incognito manager of an unknown stable that you'll never guess

Pure Evil -- Welcome! (scary name, nice start)

House of Grain -- Welcome! (the sun always rises in the yeast)

Fruit of the Loom -- Welcome!

The Eyes Have It -- Welcome! (one of your warriors better be named conjunctivitis or
I'll be sorely disappointed)

Death Studs XII -- Welcome! (oh wait, that's me)

Funky Folk -- Welcome back!

Villainous Legion -- Welcome to a member of the fine US Army!  Or is that Air Force?
Or National Guard?

Dreamtime -- Welcome!

Pastafarians -- Welcome! (nice name)

Rescue Rangers -- Welcome back!

Rush Reborn -- Welcome!

Celtic Price -- Welcome! (Paul Pierce is really good)

Everyone Else -- A pox on you! (and I'm talking a SERIOUS pox, not that wimpy chicken
kind)

TOGS STARTS TURN 436!  My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my scrod, now prepare to
die.

OMFG, did I really lose to Ambitious Guard last time out?  I'm hoping that someone
has found my dignity, because I seem to have lost it somewhere.  Please return it at
once to the Death Studs guildhouse if you come across it.  Thank you. -- Black Widow

Rolldozer -- Only another 11-1/2 months until the next Dead Tourney! -- Death "Always
Seeing the Silver Lining" Stud

Soultaker -- Wakey wakey, gramps.  The tourney and the TOGS approach. -- Studdy Buddy

Stitches -- I'm not understanding this?  It's like itching, but more so, isn't it?
That's an easy one, you itch, you scratch, and never mind people telling you not to.
What do they know?  Why should it be a trauma?  You itch, you scratch. -- Flummax

Shannon -- (sitting down and panting)  See, that isn't so bad, is it?  (licking her
opponent's face)  It's all friendly.  Everyone needs a friendly dog.  Oh...I guess I
am sitting on your chest.  But I'm not a BIG dog, you know.  And I did have a (wince)
bath.  It's a friendly gesture. -- Lassie

Red Barchetta -- (mournfully)  I didn't know that was your FAVORITE shoe, although it
DID taste really good.  Will you ever forgive me? -- The Err Mutt, very hang-dog

That Trustworthy Scribe thought he was going to hit me with a rolled up paper, but it
was the wrong kind of paper.  Parchment?  Doesn't work.  I grabbed it and tore it up.
-- Little Big Dog

Clark Kent -- Oh.  Well, if you don't know where here is, maybe you are from here.
It's the kind of thing people around here don't seem to know. -- Flummax
P.S.  But you do smell...different.  Maybe you need to eat more garlic.

Pauline -- (pained look)  My name means me.  It doesn't have to mean anything else.
-- Flummax
P.S.  What does your name mean?

Hendrick -- Woof, woof!  (wags tail) -- Lassie, glad to meet a proper
conversationalist

Our congratulations to Bluodlust CCVI, Razor XXV, Stitches, Edward Kingsley, and
Storm Fire for their Tourney Victor status. -- Spot and the Red Dog Gang
