                             Notes from the arena champ.

Valamantis!
     Well, I am proud to say that Pauly is 99% sure that I am his quickest warrior to
ever attain the throne (15 fights, no tourneys).  Which isn't that big a deal since
I'm only the sixth DM he's ever had, all of which were in this arena.  Then again, he
hasn't fought anywhere else long enough to have a chance to get one.  Although I hear
he also has had a stable going in Aradi for a while now, so one would think it's only
a matter of time.  Although it is usually a much larger arena so maybe not.  Well, I
didn't challenge anyone this turn because my teammates below me have a better shot at
beating my challenge options than I do.  Hmm, I probably should have more confidence,
being the Duelmaster and all.  Anyway, soh cah toa.
                                                                           -- T.R.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out VALAMANTIS to 
see what's new.  Too bad, RIO VISTANS, but RANDOM SITH was just too good to be 
stopped.  AS SEEN ON TV like really fought hard to move up to 7th from 12th.  Way to 
go!  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 19-12-3 you 
ask?  (Sure)  RANDOM SITH's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for YOU 
OWE ME 1 DOLLAR?  ALL ABOUT BASHERS' proud of him after beating PROSTITUTE and 
getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  PROSTITUTE's match with YOU OWE ME 
1 DOLLAR cost her a loss of 17 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think T.R. should let CONVICTED ASSASSIN be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of RANDOM SITH must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't 
know what RIO VISTANS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from RANDOM SITH, that's fer sher.  Can MASTERS OF RAGE's BERTHA be more popular than 
me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  GREAT WEAPON CHOICE 
must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She challenged MARTAVIUS.  
9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought GREAT WEAPON 
CHOICE showed great skill and promise when she subdued MARTAVIUS.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

For Son of Butch -- Why Gods!?  Why!?  He was so young. -- A.T. JR

All -- Well my double 21 lunger who was +5 in attack is still dead in case you were
wondering.  He went 6-3.  So close, and yet, so far.  Don't worry Waja, you will
return someday.  I swear it!!!! -- Pauly

C.E. (Chia Edel) -- You should go by your initials.  The rounded qualities they
possess should cause many glancing blows that fail to do much damage. -- T.R., your
friendly neighborhood Duelmaster, last turn anyway

Dana Friss -- You were saying? -- Buzz

Indimar -- I'm sure you'll be back this turn, throwing around T.V. challenges like
some kinda big shot. -- Pauly

Nuln -- Did you miss us? -- As Seen on TV

Pauly -- Only one can remain. -- Indimar

Great Weapon Choice -- You damned elves always go on like you're so superior!  All
you really are is slinky and sneaky and just plain nasty.  I hate you. -- Bali Darras
P.S.  Good fight, though, except for me getting the jump.  I mean, I LIKE getting the
jump, but I didn't expect to.
P.P.S.  Break a leg.
P.P.P.S.  Both legs.

Chuck -- If you were so determined to win, the LEAST you could have done in return is
teach me some skills!  But nooo, you had to be stingy.  You had to be too busy
winning to give any thought to being friendly and sharing.  (pause)  Okay, that came
out wrong, that came out Andorian, and we aren't Andorian here.  How about... If you
expect me to keep teaching you stuff, you have to prime the pump by YOU teaching ME
stuff, too.  It's a give-and-take deal here. -- Erfin Goram
P.S.  I had something else to say, but you loomed over me in such a menacing way that
I forgot what it was.

Bertha -- You think YOU have rage, that is NOTHING to what *I* have today.  They
could use me for a street light, I'm so burning up with it. -- Chia Edel
P.S.  Too bad it doesn't help me in the arena, isn't it?  Maybe that's because I
haven't "mastered" it yet.
P.P.S.  Probably the Dark Root.

Valamond Jr. -- You know, this did not make my day any better. -- Ghost of Dana Friss
P.S.  And Nick just laughs and says I was mediocre and not to sweat it, to take my
insurance settlement and go home and raise babies or something.  Well, it would HELP
if I had a head, you know.  Not to mention all the other important parts you hit.
That whole experience just left me really annoyed.

Dominatrix -- What?  What the HECK?  Ouch! -- Gabrella Imbro
P.S.  Was it something I said?

Chuck -- Yes, well, as Nick is always telling us, the arena is full of sharp objects,
and accidents can happen. -- Ghost of Finilla Hars
P.S.  Why should YOU not play with sharp objects?  YOU weren't the one who got hurt.
P.P.S.  I sincerely share your hope!  More people as twisted as you would be...ahem,
not a good thing.

In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the
Turf War 5.  Whoever sent this to me...please email me at rbaphomets@yahoo.com.

     The Quest of the Best has come to an end.  Dark Knight Toker, host of the Quest,
wants to proclaim the Ultimate Victor and give a listing of prize winners.
     Lady Fern and her Flower Girls of the Consortium are the Ultimate Victors of the
Quest.  Well fought and there's nothing like coming from behind to leave us all in
the dust.  Can't wait to see you defend your title! (wink)
     Here is a complete list of managers who placed in prize positions:

1)  Lady Fern, mgr. Flower Girls
2)  Le Pentarque, mgr. Blood & Guts!
3)  Crip, mgr. Otto's Parts
4)  D.K. Heathen Hatebred, mgr. Odin's Chosen
5)  Ghab, mgr. Assassin Nation
6)  Fanthayne, mgr. Dark Raiders
7)  D.K. Toker, mgr. Silver Knights
8)  D.K. Wasby, mgr. Bronze Knights
9)  The Expatriate, mgr. Bleak Legion
10) Still the Distilled, mgr. Springborne Fair

     Thanks to all that had the gall to show up, but I really want to thank the
managers that had the mettle to survive and not run when they started getting their
butt handed to them.
                                                           Respect to All.
                                                           Quest #1 host,
