                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Mario, it's the five of us, you, and four standbys, and that hardly seems
worth holding fights for!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail AMEN-TEI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, SHADY LADY fought RUTHLESS JAYWALKER and gained 9 points and 
contributed to WAYFARERS' 3-2-0.  And all eyes were on MARIO ANDRETTI this turn as he 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  AMEN-TEI has a new victor!  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that AMEN-TEI has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, AMEN-TEI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in AMEN-TEI, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in AMEN-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's
Massacre Kill Contest will begin.  The rules are simple; the team with the most kills
on the last turn wins.  Last year's winner was Shocking Toad.  Can he repeat?  Could
DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
                  2nd.  Renaming of a Stand-In monster.
     Come on and celebrate the Delarquan way!
