                             Notes from the arena champ.

Tha ends of an era.  "Tha arena is done bein dominated by da Larch!"  Speakin abouts
oneself in tha third personal tense is a sign a breedin.  I'm gonna need such
refinements when I gets ta fightin da monsters at tha gate.  Morganna, yer as worthy
as yer ever were, an ta tha rest a yaz...I'm holdin myself ups as an example a
tenacious livin an what it can accomplish...T'was a DA experiment which kick-started
me, an dat's my only kill.  *surprisingly enough*  Not dat some a yaz didn't
deserve...buuuut, <grin/gape>  I'm da one dat's leavin.  Okay, n' look...if'n I tried
ta cut anyone in half, s'okay, I forgives ya.  Geez-whiz, (on crackers) Charlie was
da talk-em-up one, an he'd say "da Mountain is da place!" ...works fer me. -- The
Larch, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JADE MOUNTAIN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with 
HAROLD?  He actually beat SAND DANCERS' TIBA TYL DAIN, and walked away with 12 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at LETHAL ANATOMY.  PINKY OF DOOM lost 8 points 
to LENTIRIA.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe PINKY OF DOOM will provide more 
easy wins...  See how the Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's ARENAMASTER 
KENDAR?  That sort of initiative is how it got where it is now.  The crowds were 
amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER KENDAR killed the Duelmaster, THE LARCH, leaving THE 
JUG O'NAUGHTS in mourning.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on? 
I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
LETHAL ANATOMY.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at DARK TOADS ain't reelin'! 
LETHAL ANATOMY's mad!  What do people see in MORGANNA?  Hers 21-13-0?  DARK TOADS 
ain't talkin', but she's got 93 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Lorana -- I don't expect to need any luck to graduate all 10 styles out of here.
What I expect to need is about 14 months. -- TigToad

No wonder we beat Lightfoot Lu so easily, he had to fight twice this turn. -- Arden &
Cyrus

The Larch -- Congratulations on the throne and all, but did you have to knock me out
of the challenger champions?  I'll never get my political points at this rate. --
Morganna

All -- The Larch, BA 13(+1)-5-19-17-17-7-7  GS VH/L.  An arboreal name taken from a
Monty Python episode which was screamingly funny...however, upon reflection, I'm hard
pressed to explain why.  My inverse relationship between size and brains really came
to the fore with this fellow, too.  (I mean, the guy was named after a tree.)  He and
Charlie practicing in the yard would draw the riot squad.  Children, gaping at his
size, would follow in his wake.  His snoring rattled all the downspouts loose.  These
though...these were extra proclivities.  As, him being a basher, it all came down to
mash-a-bility.  Now, Chilly Charlie knew what it was to hit hard, but he claimed the
hardest his bell ever got wrung was fooling around with The Larch. -- Still, the
Distiller
P.S.  Great Sword?  Well, I was half right.

Pinky of Doom -- Ah, the fickle finger.  Boss'n says I'm to start at the bottom and
work my way up...all-day, I ain't got.  You are tough, though. -- Marianne

Vona Leile -- There's never enough of your style to go around, and I've eliminated
you right off. -- The Horn Blower (taps?!? right outta the bucket?  I was hoping for
a little Ella Fitzgerald accompany-menting)

Dismissed 2 -- I'm not sure there's anyone here to avenge the feud.  Oops, guess I
was it.  Ummm uh-oh mmmm...Ya know, we've a funny system here.  Those of us, do/clean
what we like to do/clean to make the guildhouse run, but then there's job's nobody
likes to be doin and are doled out on a points system.  Losin to you gained me a ton
of points...black points...<shrug> s'gonna be a long time between cycles. -- G.
Wilikers

Writ of Mandamus -- Fuzzy reception. -- Rabbit Ears

Habeas Corpus -- Have mine, I'm not using it. -- Woody
P.S.  It's in bad shape, too.

Harold -- That was definitely the act of a toad, not a gentleman. -- Tiba tyl Dain

Allocution -- Have any of us ever beaten you? -- Essina tyl Vern and other inquiring
minds are mildly curious

Ah, nothing like a standby when you really need a win! -- Lentiria

The Horn Blower -- Hmm, the sequence of warriors that started with Vinteeloa and went
on to Leetolvina and then Vona Leile seems to be cursed. -- Lorana
P.S.  Perhaps she mistook the horn in question for Gabriel's?

Harold -- Try LOSING. -- Lentiria
