                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It looks like we have a column for last time, and a column for this time.
     I'm including both.

     Another standby, another win... life goest on.  If all goes well, and I don't
end up getting slain by a standby, I should be fighting in the tourney as an immortal
Challenger.  Not expecting much, but if I can pick up a few skills it'll be worth it. 
     A big welcome to the Drink Ups.  I guess that means we won't see Senator Bob
Dole around anymore, eh?  Hopefully my teammates can keep Big Red occupied for a
couple of turns.  If nothing else, we have something to put in our avoid slots now,
since we know challenges will be forthcoming.

                                          -- Ohmygod

     One more to go.  If I'm still here when you're reading this then that means I
made it!  Immortality at last.  An immortal Champion going into the tourney, if I'm
not mistaken.  Although I won't have faves knowledge in time.  Ah well, I'll take
what comes to me and be thankful for it.
     I was my manager's first "godling" type set of numbers.  Only took 4.5 years of
playing, 30+ team sheets, and god only knows how many DAs to finally get me.  Too bad
I didn't get much of a bonus roll.  Hosed in Init, bonused in Rip, and appear to be
mode elsewhere.  Could be worse, I suppose.  Here's what I look like:  9-6-11-17-21-
3-17.  Upon receiving this team sheet my manager's initial response was "OH MY GOD!"
The name stuck. 
     And if I'm listed in the dead column... well, see you all again in a few years.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly AMEN-TEI games.  ZIT POPPER caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested GYPSY JUNE and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ZIT POPPER put down 
GYPSY JUNE, causing her to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has OHMYGOD in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  AMEN-TEI, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is LSU COLLEGE RADIO, a guild shunned and 
avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have 
been hard pressed to find any of WRATHMEN last week.  Busy avoiding LSU COLLEGE 
RADIO?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in AMEN-TEI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can 
I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
