                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hola, 
Bien aqum soy para otro ciclo como su DM bravo.  Eso M. Chardinee es un perdedor 
verdadero.  Ningzn desafmo allm.  Optimistamente ahora que el torneo ha corrido por 
lo menos Elena o Ericka regresaran y tomaran este trono lejos de mm. 

El Hobo Jo, yo no soy mucho mas formal que usted tan yo no quiero este ya que usted 
hizo. 

Mas tarde, 
Frean

P.S.  Just thought I would try something different since no one reads this anyway.
P.P.S.  I don't actually speak Spanish so appologes to any who do.
P.P.P.S.  Next cycle, Dutch.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for HOBO JO, who flew up 15 points in the 
rankings after mashing LOCKHEART like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SELAUNAH was bested by TINDEL and 
drops 12 points.  It's a proud day for the SITTIN' ON ACES stable, as their warrior, 
ELENA, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the 
body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that SITTIN' ON ACES was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of SITTIN' ON ACES' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SAFE HAVEN beats feet every time 
SITTIN' ON ACES smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this HOBO JO you ask, 
with 77 points and a 13-8-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the AMEN-TEI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  
Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Hobo Jo -- I am more than willing to share my safe haven with you.  *wink* -- Frean

Passer By -- You know you should see a cleric about that.  I am sure they must have a 
potion to fix you right up. -- Tindel

Lockheart -- (taking the offered hand gingerly)  Never let it be said I can't return 
a friendly gesture.  Mind if I lean on you getting out of the arena?  My leg really 
hurts. -- Joe Chill

Tindel -- (blushing)  I guess that was TWO of us swinging wildly.  Glad it didn't 
kill you! -- Passer By
P.S.  I don't know WHAT you can do to keep your manager from getting, you know, 
carried away with the "excellence" thing.  Managers are so susceptible to that!

Deevine -- (thoughtful look)  You ever consider a different career?  Maybe as a 
dancer, I know a place on the lake that could use another dancer.  They're a decent 
crowd, mostly, but they do like to look. -- Hobo Jo

The Friendly Constable tried to lure me into a bathtub with him!  That... cad! -- 
Selaunah

Ah, but I never trust people who put things in writing.  So risky, you know.  Anyone 
could find it! -- Shady Lady

Deevine -- Sure worth a try. -- Joe Chill

Safe Haven -- Looks like it's just our two teams here.  Kinda spooky.  I hope we 
don't get closed down. -- Leeta, Wayfarers

Safe Haven -- Sorry about no North Woods spotlight today (or last turn), but what can 
I say?  Stuff just keeps happening in real life, and somehow that seems to prevent it 
happening in the newsletters.  I'll try harder next time. -- the Scribe

     This notice is to inform the DM world that CHAOS INC. has added CHEETO to its
ranks.  He joins APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and RUDE BUDDHA as the 6th member.
May your chaotic wings spread disaster and CHAOS for all your days!  Welcome CHEETO!!

27 March 2004
     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"
is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
-- Goat
