                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You Blade and Blood people are WORTHLESS.  AGAIN I was stuck with the title and
the column.  Xander Haxan, what were you THINKING?

                                    Tillise Ulam

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JURINE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, BLADE AND BLOOD, since 
MIDDLE WAY 16 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see LADY THORNE win a fight and gain 20 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ROEKFORT SIMS beat MIKAI ABADOS and MIKAI ABADOS lost 13 points. 
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JURINE may be getting 
bland, as TILLISE ULAM stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JURINE's trash 
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, PARLEN QUIR was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad 
to see VERELLE WIST and MIDDLE WAY 16 at The Warty Toad tonight celebrating their 
bloodfeud victory over CIRSIUM VULGARE.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the JURINE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

Tillise Ulam -- There was something wrong with my weapon.  Yeah, that's it.  My
weapon failed. -- Xander Haxan

Parlen Quir -- You've got to learn how to finish a fight.  You should have won that
one. -- Mikai Abados

Rockfort Sims -- I want another shot at Tillise Ulam. -- Sibi El Keer

Abetta Belanji -- A common thistle?!  I think not !!! -- Cirsium Vulgare

Listen, I am indignant to be here in this foul city!  A minor bureaucrat can't handle

one of my pleasure slaves, and I get punished for it.  They take away my House of
Pleasure and my freedom!  Ah, they tell me if I graduate, I'll get back my house and
my freedom.  So don't anybody get in my way! -- Lady Thorne

Mikai Abados -- Listen, you guys have got it backwards!  You're supposed to win TITLE
fights and let us win the rest. -- Parlen Quir

Sibi el Keer -- Ah, good one!  For that, allow me to buy you dinner, maybe some
dancing afterward? -- Roekfort Sims
P.S.  And if you think the invitation is on the cheesy side, well, I'm like that, as
my name should tell you.

Ambitious Guard?  I lost to the Ambitious Guard?  The shame! -- Verelle Wist

Cirsium Vulgare -- You darned common thistle! -- Ghost of Abetta Belanji
P.S.  Let this be a lesson to you all:  low con will get you killed.

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.

consulted to determine a winner.  The tie-breaking criteria are known to the
Moderator and RSI.  They will not be made public knowledge to avoid any exploitation.


Master Darque will be serving as Master of Ceremonies for the Slaughterhouse II.  As
such, all his decisions are final.  Any rules inquiries should be directed to him.
