                             Notes from the arena champ.

Pete!!  Edgar!!  Hi Ladies!!!! <big wave>  Ya it's me, Charlie, back again, oh yes,
agaaain.  (pardons, even I've got groupies...such as dey are)  So, did it take me a
while ta gets back, or what?  Top a da world, standin on scum, den a nice swoop down
through tha ranks...gettin my gettins got...an safely arrivin back at tha track nine
pinnacle once again.  20 big arena victories and not a tank job in the lot.

Premeditation, friend basher, was's wif you?  Ya looked ready fer some hea-vy action,
there.  Lady Vinteeloa, whither'st thou now?  S'truth ma'am, tha tank-a-fyin was my
idea, an you was a tuff encounter ta gets over.  But, and I reiterates, a basher's
gots ta do what a basher's gots ta do.  (where's dat sailor-feller when I needs
conferminin)  *sigh*, I've my packed portmanteau, it's been a rompin, avoid Mr. Tree
(he hits hard) an long may da Mountain rumble. -- Chilly Charlie, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for JADE MOUNTAIN.  ONE NIGHT STAND like 
really fought hard to move up to 5th from 9th.  Way to go!  MVP award for 
PREMEDITATION?  LEGALESE's proud of him after beating IAN and getting 14 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  LENTIRIA got smashed by THE LARCH, and lost 14 
points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  TREEMASTER 
knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think CHILLY CHARLIE should let TREEMASTER be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Green Axe?  Don't look at me! 
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  PARANOID ASYLUM was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 83-100-9 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors 
are DARK TOADS?  PARANOID ASYLUM, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Like, is POLLY POX popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of JADE MOUNTAIN!  She's got a 5-5-0, is that good?  
Speaking of challenging 27 points above did you hear about MORGANNA of DARK TOADS vs. 
LEGALESE's LARCENY?  (And how was that intro!) MORGANNA lost to LARCENY, but she got 
1 points.  LARCENY won, and got 8 points.  I don't get it.  People were asking me did 
HAMMERHEAD REALLY challenge TIBA TYL DAIN?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but TIBA TYL DAIN wants me 
to write about it since she defeated HAMMERHEAD.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Like, who is this guy???  CHILLY CHARLIE 
gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles TREEMASTER, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet 
THE JUG O'NAUGHTS manager is surprised!  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

All -- Chilly Charlie, BA 13-10(+1)-15-17-17-6-7 WH VH/VL.  Hard head, hard heart,
hard fists.  Likable lug, always kept his sense of humor about him. -- Still

All -- Next feller what slips me a rubber cigar is gone fetch up wif some arboreal
trouble. -- The Larch

Rip and Swing -- Slick'n and hit'n and more slick'ns. -- The Creamatorium

Charlie -- Congratulations on your invite.  It always pleases me to see our style do
well. -- Nathaniel

Flight -- Now those were informative learns.... -- Nathaniel

All -- Not sure if my earthly alter-ego turned in the paperwork to the Commission on
time so don't know if The Asylum will be here this cycle.  If we are, I do know that
there are no challenges/avoids being made.  My lackadaisical earthly alter-ego has a
serious problem with time management which irritates me to no end....  I train my
Disciples, issue proper challenges <used to have an occasional downchallenge
sprinkled in until the alter-ego from on high told me to try to "get along" with the
locals>, develop new prospects, etc....and he is sometimes negligent to get the
documents to the GC in time...go figure.  You whelps get lucky during his moments of
incoherency.  So if we don't make it to the sands this cycle we will be back with a
vengeance next go around...hopefully.  Do not rest on your laurels yet, Midnight
Mountain. -- Jekyll; Overlord of The Midnight Foundation

All -- Three of the Top 5 warriors are Bashers with a Basher holding the throne of
Midnight Mountain for several turns now....  Huh?  What has become of this place?  I
don't know whether to break into a grin at the success of a misunderstood style or to
shake my head in disgust and dismay.  All things considered, it's been interesting,
to say the least.  Good competition in the Champs and CC.  My prized Disciple,
Flight, has lost three in a row <two of which were to the filthy Toads,
unfortunately> which at his skill level is intriguing.  Good stuff, my servants...
good stuff. -- Jekyll

Still -- Congrats on the Chilly one's ascension to the throne and his invite to the
Isle as well.  I am sorry to see him go.  He was a favorite target dummy of my
Disciples both past and present and he will missed. -- Jekyll

TigToad -- Honor, you say....  No, the naming tribute would "honor" your stable if I
chose to name the sacrifices "Toads suck" or "Die, filthy Toads, Die" or something
along those lines.  The only honor you filthy Toads deserve is the honor of one of my
bloodthirsty Disciples playing "Frog Baseball" with a spiked cudgel as the bat and
one of your Filthy Toads as the ball.  *sigh*  It is more a matter of grudgingly
respecting one who has made my home away from home an interesting and peaceful <for
the most part...the past 2 months excluded> environment.  The naming tribute <a.k.a.
sacrifice to the DA> will continue until I can find a worthy Disciple to join my
stable.  You have been thus aptly honored. -- Jekyll

Still -- Yerix is still borderline.  He has won two in a row so has earned himself a
slight reprieve.  Hell, of his meager 4 wins, 2 have been against your stable.  So I
guess I owe you one...which of your warriors do you want to sacrifice to my
Disciples?  <Grin>  Yerix is still in debate as to whether to invest more time and
resources into, so the offer is still open...for now.  To the rest of the Mountain
reading and/or hearing this...this is not an open invitation to the rest of you to
pay back Jekyll for his prior downchallenges prior to his compliance with the Tig
Ordinance.  There will be consequences and repercussions if any of you decide to feel
froggy <no pun intended, Tig>. -- Jekyll

Crotamiton -- Amazing, wasn't it? -- Woody
P.S.  Sorry about only teaching you two skills, but I was too busy winning.

Standbys.  (sigh)  What if I don't want to learn Kung-Fu? -- Essina tyl Vern

Marianne Kind -- Too bad you strained your muscles early in the fight.  Things might
have gone differently, otherwise. -- Lentiria

Holly Hepatitis -- You're an amazing student.  But, true to your team name, you can't
come back for a second shot now, right? -- Tiba tyl Dain

Wobbler -- Good gods, man!  Stand up straight! -- Leetolvina

                 ANNOUNCING THE RETURN OF STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
     The last Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse was one of the closest and most exciting
contests ever held in Alastari.  Such an epic demands a sequel.  Therefore, Master
Darque and Jack Wolfspider are pleased to announce the return of the Stormcrowe
Slaughterhouse.
     Where?  Stormcrowe DM 45 (slow).  When?  The Slaughterhouse returns on Turn 207,
due August 19.  How can you get into the action?  Bring a team (one per entrant
please) to arena 45 and announce your intention to join the contest in the Personals.
     Rules:  This time around the rules are very simple.  Each warrior win against a
higher rated opponent (one or more points higher in the ratings) brings you 10
points, against even rated opponent 7 points, lower rated 5 points.  Wins against
NPCs or by a warrior who downchallenges are worth 0 points.  Points are doubled for
kills.  All warriors in the arena whether participating in the Slaughterhouse or not
are fair game.  Points are totaled weekly, and the contestant whose team has racked
up the most points at the end of 10 turns is declared Slaughterhouse Champion.
     Prizes:  To be announced; we're still talking with RSI about it.  Figure it will
be something pretty good.  But hey, who needs prizes when the honor of being
Slaughterhouse Champion awaits!
