                             Notes from the arena champ.

This may be two successive columns arriving all at once due to problems with hal.

     Hello, Jade Mountain!  Thanks, Ling, for a memorable 20th fight.  I am the first
member of Runeblades to make it to the Isle.  I have had many great fights and a
number of superb victories here.  I am sure Sand Dancers will be happy to see me
leave, as I have had great success against them.  Special thanks goes to Claws of
Night.  I hope to see you very soon on the Isle.  Cheers, Jade Mountain!

                   Xavier

     Well, it's been a very long time since I last held the throne here, but I don't
feel much like celebrating.  I'm going to miss Starr.  Winter Rose, it looks like I
am mostly likely to face either you or a stand-in.  Either way, I will do my best to
be ready.  I am not challenging anyone.

Your Duelmistress,
Anda

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for DEADLY FORCE, who flew up 17 points in 
the rankings after mashing CLAWS OF NIGHT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was IRON HANDED, who dropped 6 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with TEASER II.  Well, everybody's pal ANDA 
moved hers record to 13-7-0 by defeating WINTER ROSE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout 
and gaining 7 recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get 
a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the JADE MOUNTAIN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- 
The Unknown Spymaster

Kogan -- Glad I could help. -- Anda

Winter Rose -- Three and a rating?  Wow, thank you so much! -- Ling

Xavier -- I know, the style matchup favored me, but your hatchet scares me!
Hopefully, I'll see you at the Isle soon. -- Anda

Locutus -- Thanks! -- Teaser

Jade Lotus and Jorja -- I don't think that was why Starr said she didn't want any
more matchups.  I always try to avenge deaths, but I don't believe that was in any
way intentional, so the Bloodfeud should reflect that. -- Guido

All -- Starr was 3-3-14-13-18-12-21, Aimed Blow.  A three Con Aimer is pretty much
destined to die, but I was starting to get my hopes up once she got past her first 10
fights... -- Guido

Ling -- That has got to be a false outcome, as well as a false overture.  Actually, I
suppose... not bad. -- Winter Rose

Rage -- I have struggled with rage all my life.  Glad to win this one. -- Kogan Djian

Ghost of Starr -- That was not intentional, but you must realize that you were
betrayed by your style?  Everyone says that what aimers do best is die. -- Jade Lotus
P.S.  Of course, it didn't help that the orderlies dropped you on the way to the
Infirmary....

Angel -- That was NOT angelic. -- Claws of Night

Iron Handed -- Definitely. -- Ko-Hain the badly bruised

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission. 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $145.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI--please make your reservation by 
December 15 before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and 
people have been unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the 
tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all 
looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
