                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Lockheart, I'm shocked, just totally shocked that you lost to me.  How could you
do such a thing?  There I was, just innocently passing by, and now I'm stuck with
being the Duel2Dudette.  What am I supposed to do NOW?

                                     Passer By

P.S.  I'm really glad you didn't die in the Infirmary.  I would have missed you.
Which sounds funny, since if I'd missed you more, you wouldn't have BEEN in the

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  
WAYFARERS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SHADY LADY, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing 
AMBITIOUS GUARD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was CAR AND DRIVER's MARIO ANDRETTI, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by PASSER BY.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SAFE HAVEN?  Big bad SAFE HAVEN. 
Big bad SAFE HAVEN.  AMEN-TEI's afraid of the big bad SAFE HAVEN.  Tra la la la la!  
For those of you who like math, try this one:  SAFE HAVEN + Weapons That go Boom = 
THE FORSAKEN + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Battle Royal 4
     The Battle Royal arena contests are one of the purest tests of manager skill
available. The rules are simple.  The scoring is simple.  The updates are live.  If
you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.

8 December 2004

    exceptions will be made.

    of the alliance he has claimed for;

3.  Only one (1) team per manager may compete.  No multiple aliases please (we'll be
    checking this and if caught...you'll be disqualified and no refund);
4.  The contest will end on Turn 233 (12 turns!).  Winners will be announced on Turn
    234 and prizes sent to winning alliance between Turn 233 and 234.
5.  No declarations will be acknowledged after Turn 231.
6.  For the purpose of scoring, I reserve the right to make all final decisions.
