                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Huh!  Check your thermometers and break out your diaries!!  It's officially a
cold day... uh... when you would otherwise expect it to be hot... er, umm...
     Anyway-- It's ME!  Patroclus!  The guy voted "Most Likely to Make a Meal for the
Shewish Giant!"  I made it here at last!!  I'm not gonna change the decor of the
room, or the throne or anything.  H.S. left it under a pile of spongy cushions in
soft browns and yellows, and who am I to complain?  I probably won't be here after
the next turn, so I'll just enjoy it while I may.
     I won't challenge anyone-- I hate down-challengin' THAT much!  So hey!  C'mon
and 'step right up' and all that stuff!  Marco, I'll be expectin' you!!

Patroclus

                                      SPY REPORT

     Okay, you guys, Novgorodny Vir took the basic notes, so bear with me when he
misses things.  He notes that the Mothership went 3-2-0 and moved up by 11, whether
points or positions he doesn't say.  Furry Fury moved up significantly, from 21st to 
9th.  No note about their win/loss, but it must've been good.  Summerborn dropped by
11, probably points.  Bond-Age moved up by 9, again, probably points.
     Flavor to Go had the biggest personal point gain at twenty.  Five had the
biggest loss at sixteen.  Same fight.
     The duelmaster got the most challenges, ten in number.
     Jungleland was most avoided, and of those avoiding them, Warmasters were doing
it the most.
     There were a total of fifty-nine fights, which is down, but that's life.  Three
standbys fought.  A total of twenty-eight challenges, five to the Dark Arena, no
bloodfeuds.
     In the interests of moving things along, since the fights were delayed today,
I'm going to try to be brief.  Otherwise, the hands are going on to some other job,
and I can't type without 'em.

The Dark Arena, five would-be gladiators who were not given a chance:
     DAX (81-1768) (0-0-0,0) of FURRY FURY DA challenged STONE GOLEM (81-26) (0-0-
0,40) of DARK ARENA.  DAX was dealt death by STONE GOLEM in a 2 minute Dark Arena
fight.

Big Bones -- Shoosh, that was quite a drop.  Revenge complete, good luck in the
future against others. -- Squashapillar

Vanek -- I see you got some revenge.  Good turn. -- Grimm

Flaccus -- I am coming again. -- Porcupain

All -- I am the first of the new replacements; let me see what I can do to help this
sorry bunch of chumps. -- Old Moe

Max -- Not sure your strat in min 3, but whatever it was it worked. -- Angeroo

All -- Shoosh TP heavy up top.  I guess that means the influx of aimers are about to
cycle in. -- Grimm

     But, by the time new aimed blows reach the top, the total parries will be gone!

Michelle -- Big isn't necessarily beautiful, sister!  Maybe you should lay off the
bon-bons and cookie dough ice cream?  I think it'll help. -- Laodameia

Gremlin Stew -- You're not what I expected!  Tough, chewy, and gooey-- more like a
gristle-filled sloppy G!  Well... I'll bring something larger to smack you with next
time. -- Ronin Zen

Fidget -- It's embarrassing.  Beating you I won the throne, but it didn't even make
the spy report!!  Is that a jibe against me, or you?  Either way, you should probably
start avoiding me.  Haven't I beaten you twice already? -- Patroclus, your Duelmaster

Alarond the Scribe -- Look carefully into every dark passage, every dimly lit room
and corridor.  Your sloppy, drunken scribbling has brought my fists to your door!
Tell me-- honest:  Is Darque paying you to avoid writing our names?  Or is it that
new guy?  Punky Cracker, or Cyber Bill, or whatever.  It doesn't matter--  It's gonna
be tough holding a quill with your hands all bandaged up, buddy. -- Havoc

Monster Manual -- Hey, I know how Patty feels.  I thoroughly perforated Earth
Elemental; the crowds loved the way the blood spurted out through its surprised
expression.  Did I get mentioned in the obituary notice?  NO!  Alarond the Scribe
must be on someone's payroll!  Well... bloodfeud when you're feeling lucky.  I'm on
my way to take that throne next! -- Pandera Pax

Tara the Red -- Interesting strategy:  get beat up for one minute, then turn the
tables!  Not the usual tactical ploy from someone using your style.  It worked this
time.  Hopefully not NEXT time!!  See you soon. -- Antenor

D. Noble -- You're probably aiming too low.  The higher up the challenge, the more
likely it is to go through.  At least, that's been my experience.  Just be careful
about the style and the strategy and go for it!  If you don't get a fighter killed,
they'll usually learn quite a bit from the experience. -- Kid Arcane

Consortium -- When Cyber told me you were leaving, I had to chime in here on the ads.
Good riddance.  I exposed you for the fraud you are and now you're leaving.  You
basically called me a liar.  I lied about you fighting whenever you wanted even
though the pledge says you'll fight five warriors every turn?  You didn't do that?  I
lied about you challenging sub par warriors (50% or less)?  I lied about you
challenging warriors with less FE?  Go back and look.  I did.  That's what you do.
Take your sorry self to some Andorian area where nobody will call you out on this
stuff.  I'll make you a deal.  Come back here and so will I.  We will see what's up.
-- Elephant

All -- Anyone out there that want to defend Consortium, go back and look at the
facts.  They support everything I said about him.  He sucks and is overrated. --
Elephant

     Thanks for the resend effort in nearly-plain text.  The first transmission did
     arrive, but the nearly-plain (apostrophes, for example, show up as hollow
     squares) is easier to deal with. -- Larkin

Consortium -- Rhymes with Some Sort of Bum.

Red Blades -- Was that three challenges on one turn?  Wow.  That is almost...
noticeable.  I might say something about "watch out" or something if we were actually
winning more of those fights!  So maybe we need to watch out.  Please note that one
of the Pikers got you. -- Nomad and the Guild

Patroclus -- Congrats on attaining the Duelmaster title! -- Vanek, Manager of
Warmasters (who coincidently has 4 title challenges coming your way!)

Consortium -- I hope you change your mind and come back.  I am very disappointed to
see you leave! -- Vanek

Porcupain -- That is how I do it, parry stab stab bam.  SS to the kidneys.  Poor
Grimm. -- Flaccus :p

Magic Rat -- I knew I could beat you if I got another chance! -- Victor
P.S.  That was a fairly impressive Total Parry impression you made there to start
that fight!

Hey old man -- I hope my DC is the reason you are leaving here. -- Cyberpunk

Crybaby Otto -- You're next on my list.  One down, one to go. -- Cyberpunk
P.S.  Stop avoiding me.  My new guys aren't really that good.  What are you afraid
of?
