                             Notes from the arena champ.

It is a pretty sad state of affairs when your predecessor has more learned skills
than you have total skills.  I do not belong here!  In fact, even with my planned
Bloodfeud towards Annabel Blackheart, it could be that I will not be on the throne
next turn.  That would be a great embarrassment, but is a very real possibility.

I will say that my spirits are much better this month.  Christmas is just a time of
depression.  But it is a new year with new opportunities.  Assur would really like me
to hold the throne for at least one turn.  He tells me this would pretty much ensure
that I will graduate on or before my 21st fight.  Speaking of the old man, he wants
to speak, so I turn this forum over to him.

-- Virginia

Hopefully the deaths on this team are done.  I want all three of my remaining
warriors to graduate!  Unlike the Woody and the Mighty Ducks (who have earned my
respect and admiration), I have no qualms using avoids and any tool available to
accomplish my own goals.  This is, after all, a Delarquan arena, and I am about a
Delarquan as they come.  To Duckman, I give my congratulations.  I do not expect
early graduations for any of my crew (might be possible with 5 Golden Warriors, but
it is still a long way off), but we shall see.  Certainly, invites to the Isle of the
Eye are always welcome to my warriors.  For that is often my only long term goal for
warriors.  Until next time (I can only hope it'll be next turn) -- Assurnasirbanipal

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  MIGHTY DUCKS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, MIGHTY DUCKS has advanced 3 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for KASSAL TEN DRU, who flew up 15 points in the 
rankings after mashing HELVAN QUICKHAND like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  JERI TAVAN was beat by 
MASTER OF THE EDGE and drops 17 points.  Unlike most arenas, VIRGINIA, NO SANTA 
managed to get his challenge off against the 16-11-2 KO LAO-DEN.  Well, everybody's 
pal VIRGINIA, NO SANTA moved his record to 12-2-0 by defeating KO LAO-DEN in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 7 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the DAL SHANG arena.  Here's 
a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad POSSE?  Big bad POSSE.  Big bad POSSE.  
DAL SHANG's afraid of the big bad POSSE.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo 
me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS beats feet every time 
POSSE smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
JAEGO SARL, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the DAL SHANG 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.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

$1.25 -- I'm surprised I actually jumped you.  I wasn't surprised that you won the
fight. -- B.B. Sage

Mighty Ducks -- Missed a turn, sorry about that.  Not an arena I run in regularly and I lost track of time.  My fault, not B.B Sage's. -- Barnabas

My Two Front Teeth -- 17-17-11-17-3-12-7 B Very Little Endurance, Good Dmg.
Estimated skills at:  12/5/14/-2/-1/11
     One of the cooler warriors I've run, but I was very disappointed in his damage
dealing abilities.  Ultimately, though, he was pretty bad and not a great loss.  He
represents an attempt to fulfill my goal of graduating a basher with a starting stat
of 3 in each stat and a starting stat of 21 in each stat.  Obviously he was a 3 Will
Basher.  I fully expected these guys to see death, hence I used an immortality prize
on such a warrior in another arena.  To date, I have lost three 3 Will bashers and my
immortal has died once.  Besides the immortal, I have one other active 3 Will basher.
-- Assur

Tebas Ten Kogan -- Tarnishing under Assur's management is not something anyone wants
to do....  After last fight, though, I'm more worried about you holding out!  Let's
stick to the basics and keep us both alive! -- 5 Golden Warriors

Sigban -- I have been meaning to ask Assur about that winning thing.  He doesn't let
me train with Virginia or Golden.  He says I'm special and need special attention.
But I see them winning all the time while I struggle to win at all.  I wouldn't mind
trying their winning ways and forgetting all this stuff Assur is trying to tell me.
He says I'm special, but I haven't seen it.  But he's given me a home to make it to,
so I can't complain too much. -- Made it Home

5 Golden Warriors -- The reflection off all that gold is just blinding.  Easy for
you, because you don't have to stare into it, but I figure that's why I didn't learn
anything.  I couldn't really see you. -- Tebas ten Kogan

Virginia, No Santa -- Okay, NOW you can gloat.  Ouch! -- Ko Lao-den

Sweet Anella -- You want your backbrush back, do you?  No way.  I won it fair and
square, and I'm KEEPING it. -- Jeri Tavan

I hate fighting people like Sagat of Paidan.  He's a criminal, you know, a deadly
killer-for-hire, and he just fights in the arena as a front.  Oh, nobody TALKS about
it, exactly, but word gets around. -- Jaego Sarl
P.S.  I'm sure the Kansarians hired him to GET me.

Mim Yellowhair -- You bleach it, right?  I mean, orcs don't come in blonde, do they?
-- Kassal ten Dru

Maldi Stonebreaker -- (smugly)  I'm not a stone!  Nyah-nyah. -- Dakoril

Mim Yellowhair -- I don't care if you bleach it or not, you've got a lot of, ahem,
womanliness there, and I like what I see. -- Gobarl

Blackthorn -- Nah, you're not pathetic, just doomed by the style match, or so they
tell me. -- Sigban

Ko Lao -- Den -- If I actually had a warrior with an even close amount of FE, you

her record or anything. -- Rosebud
