                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings from the throne.  A special thanks goes out to Gremlin Stew, for being
such a pushover.  My boss tells me I could get my invite next turn if I can hold on
to the throne.  I am leaving behind a bottle of Pepto-Bismol, hopefully that will
help keep the Stew off the throne in the future.

Your Duelmaster,
          Irwehn

                                      SPY REPORT

     Okay, first things first:  A word of warning which may not be needed (they never
tell me stuff in the office).  We have been Split, and some or all warriors
accustomed to fighting in Storm Rock may have been thrown back into Talahya.  If you
have teammates in Storm Rock, check and make sure they have not wandered off!  Storm
Rock does not have warriors to spare, and Talahya already has too many.

     Now, the current stuff about fighting HERE.  First, hmm, it looks like Cult of
Bacchus has taken the Top Team spot from The Mothership 011.
     Hmm, major point movements:  Vlad Tepes up 21.  Blue Nova down 17.  Different
fights.
     The duelmaster, that would be Irewen, was most challenged.  The outcome of that
leaves me confused, which is not difficult.  We'll get to it later.
     Otto's Diner was most avoided, and of those who avoided it, Big Lake Outcasts
did more than anyone else.
     We had thirty-six fights, nineteen challenges, and one standby.  No Dark Arena
fights, no bloodfeuds.  Rather quiet here, really.

     CASSIOPEIA (81-2005) (0-0-0,0) of SEARCH THE SKY fought PERSISTANT BEGGAR (81-4)
(0-0-0,10) of Fine Imported Standbys.  CASSIOPEIA overpowered PERSISTANT BEGGAR in a
1 minute one-sided match.  Good work, Cassie.  You don't want to lose to a Beggar,
not even on your first fight.
     FURIO 5 (81-1998) (0-0-0,0) of CULT OF BACCHUS fought MYNOCK MAELSTROM (81-2006)
(0-0-0,0) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS.  FURIO 5 subdued MYNOCK MAELSTROM in a 2 minute
gruesome novice's struggle.  The beginning of the 4-1 that brought the Cult of
Bacchus to top team.
     WORRIED WILDEBEEST (81-1989) (0-1-0,1) of DOC LEGRAND'S LAB fought STOLIDI PETRA
(81-1995) (0-2-0,2) of SEARCH THE SKY.  WORRIED WILDEBEEST viciously subdued STOLIDI
PETRA in a 3 minute novice's duel.  This is perhaps the strategy by which wildebeests
hope to avoid extinction?  Good luck.
     LADY ORIEL (81-1984) (3-0-0,18) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought BRINDLE BADGER (81-
2004) (0-0-0,0) of FURRY FURY.  LADY ORIEL was luckily beaten by BRINDLE BADGER in a
dull 20 minute novice's bout.  Ah, Lady, probably you should not have worn that fur
trim on your armor.
     BEORDIN (81-1980) (2-1-0,9) of CULT OF BACCHUS fought MISTRESS MINK (81-1988)
(0-1-0,1) of DOC LEGRAND'S LAB.  BEORDIN demolished MISTRESS MINK in a 1 minute one-
sided fight.  Interesting.  We know about minks....
     TACOMA (81-1869) (1-5-0,19) of THE WILLBURYS II fought MAIMONIDES (81-1987) (1-
2-0,5) of DARQUE AGES.  TACOMA was handily defeated by MAIMONIDES in a 1 minute one-
sided fight.  Good going, Maimonides, come from below and kick their feet!

     LYCANTHROPIC LYNX (81-52) (12-7-1,56) of DOC LEGRAND'S LAB fought EREKOSE (81-
1965) (7-1-0,44) of THE MOTHERSHIP 011.  LYCANTHROPIC LYNX overpowered EREKOSE in a 2
minute gruesome one-sided fight.  That is one peculiar dog-cat.
     SENSUAL SHREW (81-49) (12-7-0,51) of DOC LEGRAND'S LAB fought SANTA CLAUS (81-
1966) (4-4-0,26) of LA PENTARCHIE.  SENSUAL SHREW overpowered SANTA CLAUS in a 1
minute uneven competition.  And if the Sensual Shoe meets the Flirtatious Foot, then
what?
     HENRY MILLER (81-1846) (5-23-1,43) of LITERATE LOONS fought XIOMBURG (81-1964)
(6-2-0,56) of THE MOTHERSHIP 011.  HENRY MILLER won victory over XIOMBURG in an
action packed 2 minute one-sided fray.  The triumph of easy pronunciation.
     RAMIRUS (81-1935) (11-2-0,66) of WARMASTERS fought ORTING (81-1815) (11-19-0,52)
of THE WILLBURYS II.  RAMIRUS was savagely defeated by ORTING in a dull 23 minute
brutal match.  I slept through, so no comments.
     CABICHON (81-1914) (10-7-0,60) of LA PENTARCHIE fought BAD BORSCHT (81-1894) (9-
11-2,56) of OTTO'S DINER.  CABICHON overpowered BAD BORSCHT in a 1 minute one-sided
duel.  If a bit of better butter makes the bitter batter better, does a better beet
make better borscht?  If there is such a thing as a better beet.
     CAT N TONIC (81-1870) (7-8-1,58) of FURRY FURY fought GAMBLE (81-1635) (12-11-
0,47) of THE MOTHERSHIP 011.  CAT N TONIC overpowered GAMBLE in a 1 minute one-sided
duel.  Never gamble around a furious cat.

     TURDUCKEN (81-1784) (19-19-1,90) of OTTO'S DINER fought DROW (81-1774) (23-17-
0,89) of MONSTER MANUAL.  TURDUCKEN overpowered DROW in a 1 minute one-sided match.
Probably the sunlight.
     ONION RINGS (81-1684) (18-27-0,93) of FOOD fought QUINN (81-1634) (12-11-1,93)
of THE MOTHERSHIP 011.  ONION RINGS was vanquished by QUINN in a 1 minute mismatched
fray.  I don't know how Quinn got away with using Onion for a ring-toss, but getting
the Ring over the arenamaster was, ah, let's just say that it made my day.
     IRONHEAD (81-1722) (24-20-0,101) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought AL ZHEIMER (81-1886)
(12-8-0,76) of LA PENTARCHIE.  IRONHEAD luckily beat AL ZHEIMER in a popular 3 minute
gruesome veteran's duel.  Al kept forgetting what he was doing out there.  At least,
that's what it looked like to me.
     REDDIG (81-1838) (21-9-0,114) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought LADY GODIVA (81-1782)
(22-16-0,86) of DARQUE AGES.  REDDIG savagely defeated LADY GODIVA in a crowd
pleasing 2 minute master's conflict.  The amazing power of embarrassment.
     FAILED DOG TRICK (81-1798) (14-13-0,104) of FURRY FURY fought GLABRIO (81-1800)
(16-18-2,93) of WARMASTERS.  FAILED DOG TRICK was overpowered by GLABRIO in a 1
minute one-sided bout.  Do you suppose naming a warrior Failed jinxed him?

Ah!  The challenges:
     SCALPERE FATI (81-2002) (1-0-0,10) of SEARCH THE SKY challenged SEPTIMIUS (81-
2001) (1-0-0,10) of WARMASTERS.  Straight across.  SCALPERE FATI overpowered
SEPTIMIUS in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge bout.  Good work, Fatty, ah, Fati, begin
as you mean to go on.
     TREMERUS (81-1974) (3-3-0,12) of WARMASTERS challenged HAULIN' OATS (81-1957) 
(5-4-0,25) of OTTO'S DINER.  Up 13.  TREMERUS bested HAULIN' OATS in a crowd pleasing
3 minute Challenge brawl.  Still, better oats than beets.
     VLAD TEPES (81-1979) (5-0-1,32) of DARQUE AGES challenged STARRY VOID (81-1958)
(6-3-0,50) of SEARCH THE SKY.  Up 18.  VLAD TEPES vanquished STARRY VOID in a 1
minute one-sided Challenge fray.  This is what led to Vlad's big point gain.
     GRIMSTONES (81-1937) (5-7-0,26) of CULT OF BACCHUS challenged PHYNN (81-1971)
(3-4-0,32) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  Up 6.  GRIMSTONES vanquished PHYNN in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge bout.  Is a grimstone anything like a brimstone?
     ADISSA (81-1949) (6-4-0,40) of CULT OF BACCHUS challenged AELA FIREBLADE (81-
975) (7-10-0,41) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS.  Up 1.  ADISSA was overcome by AELA FIREBLADE
in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Ah, this is the Cult's one loss.
     THE SEAMSTRESS (81-986) (5-12-0,36) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS challenged ROADKILL
SURPRISE (81-1920) (6-4-0,34) of FURRY FURY.  Down 2.  THE SEAMSTRESS was demolished
by ROADKILL SURPRISE in a 2 minute Challenge brawl.  Embarrassing, eh?
     EYE OF THE DEEP (81-1923) (10-6-0,52) of MONSTER MANUAL challenged SYFTAR TRAFF
(81-1876) (9-13-0,66) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  Up 14.  EYE OF THE DEEP slimly won 
victory over SYFTAR TRAFF in a 3 minute Challenge battle.  Huh, I can't seem to get
the Hands to focus on this one, so no comment.  Sorry.

     QUARTON (81-827) (13-14-0,53) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS challenged EDNA MILLAY (81-
1834) (13-18-0,57) of LITERATE LOONS.  Up 4.  QUARTON demolished EDNA MILLAY in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge competition.  Some people just don't like poetry.
     STORM GIANT (81-1819) (15-17-0,62) of MONSTER MANUAL challenged SACRED SABLE
(81-335) (9-7-0,66) of DOC LEGRAND'S LAB.  Up 4.  STORM GIANT beat SACRED SABLE in an
exciting 3 minute Challenge fight.  A crashing storm will do that.  Excite the crowd
and all.
     CAEDMON (81-1873) (13-10-0,57) of DARQUE AGES challenged JOURNEYMAN (81-1967)
(6-2-0,75) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  Up 18.  CAEDMON beat JOURNEYMAN in a 2 minute
Challenge melee.  I expect Caedmon has shot up the ranks a little.
     HOMONCULOUS (81-1851) (13-13-0,72) of MONSTER MANUAL challenged HARE BINGER (81-
1790) (16-13-1,105) of FURRY FURY.  Up 33.  HOMONCULOUS vanquished HARE BINGER in a 1
minute one-sided Challenge fight.  The crowds always like to see an underdog win.
     AGORIX (81-1842) (17-12-2,74) of WARMASTERS challenged TOSSED SALAD (81-1686)
(13-32-0,78) of FOOD.  Up 4.  AGORIX unbelievably bested TOSSED SALAD in a popular 5
minute expert's Challenge duel.  And this is unbelievable why?  Salads are easy.

     THE CRISCO KID (81-1912) (10-7-0,84) of OTTO'S DINER challenged THE DRONE (81-
1862) (13-12-1,76) of LA PENTARCHIE.  Down 8.  THE CRISCO KID overpowered THE DRONE
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  Greasy, very greasy.
     FEOHR (81-1737) (20-23-1,84) of CLAN LONGBEARD challenged BLUE NOVA (81-1898)
(11-8-0,97) of SEARCH THE SKY.  Up 13.  FEOHR overpowered BLUE NOVA in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge brawl.  For this, Blue had the biggest drop today.
     INGRAT (81-1805) (18-16-0,88) of LA PENTARCHIE challenged ZADIE SMITH (81-1701)
(21-25-0,88) of LITERATE LOONS.  Straight across.  INGRAT was devastated by ZADIE
SMITH in a popular 4 minute uneven Challenge brawl.  Better Zadie Smith than Zadie
Hawkins.
     JULIAN OF NORWICH (81-1783) (18-20-1,82) of DARQUE AGES challenged RYAK RAZORSAW
(81-597) (18-29-2,86) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS.  Up 4.  JULIAN OF NORWICH overpowered
RYAK RAZORSAW in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  Gotta watch those razor saws,
they're too easily blunted.
     MARTILN (81-1742) (24-17-0,91) of CLAN LONGBEARD challenged JOSEPH MITCHELL (81-
1746) (19-23-2,104) of LITERATE LOONS.  Up 13.  MARTILN defeated JOSEPH MITCHELL in a
crowd pleasing 3 minute master's Challenge duel.  Right, Martiln finally gave me the
clue I needed to make sense of the title fights!  Thanks.

For the title:
     Confusion.  First, PURPLE WORM (81-1775) (19-21-1,103) of MONSTER MANUAL
challenged IRWEHN (81-1785) (23-15-0,147) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  Up 44.  PURPLE WORM
subdued IRWEHN in a 2 minute veteran's Challenge melee.  Irewen was duelmaster last
time, Purple Worm defeated him.  Purple Worm should be the duelmaster now, yes?  Even
that idiot Snide Clemens expected it.
     But, WORD THIEF (81-1849) (15-10-0,103) of CULT OF BACCHUS challenged GREMLIN
STEW (81-1710) (34-11-0,113) of OTTO'S DINER.  Up 10.  WORD THIEF bested GREMLIN STEW
in a 3 minute master's Challenge Title fight.  And Word Thief is now listed as the
duelmaster, with Purple Worm nowhere in the rankings at all!  And it isn't that
Purple Worm is a stealth warrior in the normal way, he was listed in the rankings
last turn.
     I don't have a clue what is going on here, so I'm just going to congratulate
both winners, wrap up this spy report, and call it a night.

                                       Larkin

P.S.  Okay, I finally got a clue, checked the last newsletter again.  I must be
working on this too late at night.  Purple Worm is GONE after today's fight.
Graduated.  Phew!  I am SO glad to have that cleared up.
