                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm walking down a long hallway with giant stone pillars that are flanking my
sides.  The hallway seems to go on forever, the wooden doors are two warriors in
fierce battle.  Then for some unknown reason, the doors slowly open inwards and
inside the mysterious room is a chair.  Not a chair, but a throne, in the middle of
the room.  Of which is being illuminated by the sun's rays.  As if the gods are
guiding me to my destination.  I cautiously walk towards the throne.  Slowly up the
steps.  And with ease and grace, I sit in the huge throne.  A smile creeps onto my
face.  Yeah, it's good to be King.
     I would like to thank some people for helping me to become your new King, I mean
Duelmaster.  So here goes.  Thank you to Dirty Girl Scout for losing to me.  I would
also like to thank Wraith, Haugha Ryde, Ernie Guul, Professor Older, Tobeornottobe,
Turnpike, and last but not least, Kali Flower for giving me the 23 points that
started my journey to the Duelmaster's throne.

Your Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KYR'TERR will ever be the same.  TOTAL CHAOS stable has parlayed this turn's 
3-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, MOTHER OF PUS fought BEEF and gained 11 points and 
contributed to OUTER GODS' 4-1-0.  BEEF has lost to MOTHER OF PUS, falling 10 points, 
while helping make PIZZA TOPPINGS a 1-4-0 turn.  We should ask TOBEORNOTTOBE about 
the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's 
now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  ZOMBIE SQUADS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were KYR'TERR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided ZOMBIE SQUADS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was OUTER GODS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that BEEF from 
PIZZA TOPPINGS was KYR'TERR's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in KYR'TERR, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KYR'TERR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

And a rousing cheer for the New Year back at you, Warlock. -- Jorja, the Zoo

Beef -- I was tired, I'd been up late the night before, the moon was in the wrong

Three-two for us, AND you will note, Beef, that I was "up" for our match today.  Not
up for lengthy personals, any of us, because it's so darned COLD here, but hey, it's
