                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Kit-Kat, what have you got to say for yourself?  Being chocolate-coated is
not enough.

                                      Delores

P.S.  Hmmm, speaking of chocolate-covered, where are those peanut clusters?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JURINE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see DUKE VATO win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DUKE VATO beat 
KETA and KETA lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, JURINE may be getting bland, as DELORES 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, JURINE?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in JURINE to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- 
Snide Clemens

Chillili Chess -- You again.  I'm getting used to you.  In a few turns I'll know
enough to kill you. -- Xander Haxan

Timo -- No more wins for you!  Stay away from Steatopygous. -- Shivaree Sjden

Randy -- I see the dark arena in my future. -- Steatopygous

Timo -- My "prominence"?  <sob>  So I do have a big butt!  <sob>  Waaaaaaaa! --
Steatopygous

It's amazing that this is the first time in eleven months (maybe longer, but that's
how far back our current listing goes at present) that one of us Favorite Guys has
matched with M. Chardinee.  In a large, bustling arena, this would not be a surprise,
but here?  Very odd. -- Keta

Shivaree Sjden -- Not bad for a pretty little golem. -- Timo
P.S.  Don't seek my death, you NEED me.

Xander Haxan -- You need to change your second name to "Hax-on."  It describes your
fighting attitude rather well. -- Chillili Ches the hacked up

Steatopygous -- Okay if I just call you "Big Buns"?  It's easier to spell. -- Randy
P.S.  Nothing negative, I like well-developed buns.

4 May 2005
Several questions have been asked about Slaughter's Challenge that I'd like to
address and clarify.
     1)  All Prizes must be used on the contest team, this includes the resurrection.
         Remember any fast arena team should be able to transfer to a slow arena
         (except for arena 82, I believe).
     2)  Warriors will be allowed to fight and run in the dead tourney, should there
         be one, and return if an opening can be made without breaking the rules
         (i.e. only one DA fight allowed per team).
     3)  If you win your single DA match you do not get another.  It's one use of the
         Dark Arena win or lose so if you want him/her/it dead be sure and throw the
         match!
     4)  The resurrection potion's longevity has been extended by the commission to 6
         months but the other potions (favorites, and +1 bonus) must still be used
         within 2 turns and on a 5 FE or higher warrior.  The resurrection can go on
         any warrior regardless of FE.
Street Legal

P.S.  My thanks to those already entered (Hammer, The Consortium, Tripwire, Stik, and
Shaman) and hope many more find a reason to come to arena 54.  Again, my email is
triumph1971@hotmail.com or you can diplo me in arena 14 at THE DEATH SQUAD (63) if
you need more info!

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
