                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Black Eye, that's what you get when you fall on your face.  Try falling on
your back next time.  Wind sprints wouldn't hurt, either.

                                    Laelkorissa

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ERINIKA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  PLAY BALL like really 
fought hard to move up to 6th from 14th.  Way to go!  MVP award for CARDINAL?  PLAY 
BALL's proud of it after beating THOMAS and getting 25 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  NOLAN MARRIK got smashed by SKIN PEELER, and lost 16 points!  Was that 
a tear I saw in BLACK EYE's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't 
LAELKORISSA fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said ERINIKA's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Like, is 
NOLAN MARRIK popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ERINIKA!  He's 
got a 9-3-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  CARDINAL of PLAY BALL wasn't planning on 
killing THOMAS, I bet.  Now it has to worry about being Bloodfeuded, and getting put 
on lists...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ERINIKA is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Thomas -- Ah, blindsided by a new blade on the scene.  They tell me orcs aren't quick
thinkers or adaptable, and now I see it. -- Nolan Marrik

Frisbee -- Ah.  Jorja says she "remembers your team from elsewhere."  Okay.  And this
means to me what?  No answer.  Women. -- Ros Quin
P.S.  Drat, still a golem.  I'd hoped that leaving Noblish Island might cure me of
that.

What the heck?  The Captured Orc isn't an orc!  Not even part orc, would be my guess,
no tusks, not even big teeth.  A disappointment. -- Tarin Sills
P.S.  Probably his non-orcness is why he was able to win, yes?

Tarin thinks SHE has it bad, the Fratsfa Slave isn't Fratsfan, he isn't even BLOND.
I was really looking forward to messing up a tall, supercilious blond.  Oh, well,
maybe another time. -- Lisa Karol

Death Sucks -- Possibly, but probably only the PROSPECT of death is so unwelcome.  I
expect once you're in the middle of it, you probably don't mind. -- Salinda Renn

                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with
appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
