                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I have achieved greatness.  Immortality.  I am a Lord Protector.  Of course,
now TigToad tells me I will be protecting from the comforts of my estate as my
fighting career is done.  Such is the life of a striker, I suppose.  In all fairness
to myself, I have the best favorites of any striker TigToad has graduated.  My
portfolio is:  9-3-15-21-15-6-15 ST.  Poor/Good.  HI/MO GA.  I was a decise favorite
learn, too.  I do make for the ninth style TigToad has graduated from Jade Mountain.
Once Anne joins me on the Isle, TigToad's last arena goal will be accomplished.  I
suppose it is time for him to get off of his chair and start making new goals!  He
did say that the new warriors coming in will not be on maintenance as it has made him
lazy.  Good for him, he needs to be poked into action! -- John Michael

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JADE MOUNTAIN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
DARQUE?  DARK TOADS' proud of her after beating SAI-KI THE PEGLEG and getting 15 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ARNAL REDAXE got smashed by PRONGS, and 
lost 2 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think JOHN MICHAEL 
should let TABATAN 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?  The warriors of DARK TOADS must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are I AM SAM?  DARK TOADS, an easy team to beat 
if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can SAND DANCERS' TREENVA 
TARAL be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?  See if I ever talk to SAMARIUM again!  TREENVA TARAL was so low when He 
challenged he.  Hhmph!  Is this how I AM SAM advances, by having their members 
(SAMARIUM) fight people that are really below them (TREENVA TARAL)?  For sure, I was 
holding my breath when I found out SAMOSET challenged ANNE.  After all, haven't I AM 
SAM and DARK TOADS had a long standing duel in JADE MOUNTAIN?  It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but ANNE wants me to write about it since she bested 
SAMOSET.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Well, I have nine styles down.  If Anne can live to graduation I will have achieved
my goal of graduating all ten styles from one arena.  She is close to graduating if
Samarium doesn't find her and kill her. -- TigToad

All -- Please welcome Vern and Darque as the newest members of the Dark Toads. --

Tabatan -- Sorry about neglecting my parting column.  I feel just terrible, but I
have prodded John Michael into writing one. -- Mockingbird

Sand Dancers -- Yeah well, Woody may not have had perfect 'numbers', but Woody had
that special something that made him someone you just wanted to be around.  Probably
because when we were around him we were fighting and when he fought he lost...but
still.  I'll always have a fond place in my Duelmasters heart for Woody. -- TigToad

Samoset -- Didn't I used to lose to you?  Or am I confusing you with somebody else?
-- Tabatan the confused

Prongs -- That isn't, or they aren't, an allowed weapon.  Are they? -- Volto Leeni

Well, I did win, and I think Shizaran is one of the tougher standbys, so I guess
that's good.  But I bet he doesn't write me a personal. -- Treenva Taral

I hate lawyers. -- Arnal Redaxe

21 May 2005
Amendment for "Fratsfa's Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance

I am in the process of moving house, and spotlight writing for the next two months
