                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Razortoothrotey, you can graduate any time now.  I won't mind.

                                        Midnight Rambler

P.S.  Okay, I know that's short, but it's all I've got time for.  I need to go
somewhere cool rather quickly.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
AMEN-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, WHY KNOT, since 
WAYFARERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see MARKOS win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, WANDERING JO beat HANGMAN and HANGMAN lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
DIS-JOINT challenged AMEN-TEI's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as DIS-JOINT takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, AMEN-TEI?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  WAYFARERS was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DIS-TEAM.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, RAZORTOOTHROTEY 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.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next 
guy, but hey WAY OF THE BLADE 2, whyja send PLASO to the Dark Arena, look at his 
record, huh?  And sending TORVIK to the Dark Arena was supposed to be one of your 
better ideas, WAY OF THE BLADE 2?  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  GRANNY, a glorious 
4-6-2 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad WHY KNOT.  A big yahoo goes out to 
WANDERING JO this turn, for revenging WAYFARERS' bloodfeud against WHY KNOT's warrior 
HANGMAN.  Heh, heh, heh.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team 
is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

All -- Remember to put your arena number on your strategy sheets.  Strategies turned
in without an arena number run the risk of missing the turn. -- NAIEI

10 May 2003
To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

Assurnasirbanipal invites all to use his computerized warrior management tool.  The
program is the most extensive management tool ever created.  It was meant to run on a
PALM OS PDA, but will run (emulated) on a PC or MAC.  You can get this program on the
web at: http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir

27 May 2003
A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
