     "The Moonshadow Cult sends its members into the arena," Vilishizar hissed.  "Why
should WE do the same?  It will make us seem as cheap and small as they are."
     "Not so," Grandmaster Hallvordin said, being careful not to hiss.  He found
Vilishzar's lisp annoying, though he would never say so, that would be rude.  It
wasn't like Vilish could help it, with that forked tongue.  "It will enable us to
establish a pressence in the minds of the gladiatorial community, which is good.  The
Mysterious Cult must not be the last to do this."
     "You seek converts from among them?" Vilish asked, frowning.  "Is this wise?
They are irreverent.  They are drunken carousers.  They--"
     "They are prefectly acceptable to the Mysterious Force, one way...or another,"
Hallvordin said.  "We always need more recruits to feed the Force."
     "If we sacrifice gladiators, Salgreid will not be happy.  He will be very not-
happy."
     This reminder seemed to make hallvordin not happy, also.  "He won't know, if
we're careful.  And if he does find out, well--"
     "You aren't thinking we could capture and sacrifice SALGREID?  Half or more of
the Cult would die in the attempt, he is as bad as a demon!"
     "All reputation, Vilish.  I have a plan."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

First I would like to thank all those that choose to fight in this fine arena and to
apologize for not writing when I first became DM.  Now that I have chosen to make my
voice heard I will probably lose the throne.  :(

I am proud to stand above all the fine fighters from all the fine stables in this
arena.  May all that come to follow me share that with me.  With that said I hope to
maintain my position for some time to come.  Blood and sands.  Life and death.  Come
find me and we shall see what comes for you.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TELORINTHE games.  Former top team CIXELSID HEROES was 
unseated this week as INVIDIOTS moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 
5-0-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at FEMME FATALE's guildhouse 
after a 0-5-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 13th.  Dark Arena 
anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week INVIDIOTS went 5-0-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note 
the 4-1-0 record which OLDIES managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  GOSSIPID caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested TAUTROSA and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BUZZ put down PEP RALLY, 
causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most 
sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster 
OSSERC himself.  This time out 3RD AND 98 made its bid for the throne as it 
challenged OSSERC in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  Not 
for nothing has OSSERC in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TELORINTHE "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  TELORINTHE, city of gladiators!  Mighty among 
the names of thy guilds is CIXELSID HEROES, a guild shunned and avoided by many in 
the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that 
spent the better part of last week avoiding CIXELSID HEROES.  Indeed it was 
INVIDIOTS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  My sources at FEMME FATALE stable claim they've 
never seen the guild bitterer.  This as a result of the untimely demise of TAYLOR 
RAIN.  Beware CYCLIDIA!  MASTER SHAKE must hold silent, for this week he was humbled 
in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by ROYAL RAGE HAMMER of AAAARRGH HAMMERZ.  
Hail ROYAL RAGE HAMMER for thy victory!  Walk proud, warriors of OLLIS HEROES!  By 
striking down MEATWAD you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known 
to all in TELORINTHE.  My hearty congratulations LETTER SWEATER, for thy revenge upon 
SEA OF GORE, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in TELORINTHE as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Osserc -- Champeen!  Yowsir!  You da man!  Yup! -- Smitty

Sea Of Gore -- Did you have to go and kill 4H?  Poor Smitty.  He is so greatly
distraught that he cannot attend the funeral.  He's away dousing his pain in
moonshine.  You did a bad, bad thing! -- Oldies Spokesperson
P.S.  It was a 9-10-16-15-9-14-11 +4 riposte striker (and, yes, the recruit was
better--smile)

Katja K -- If you want to get anywhere with me, you have to drive. -- Draggin' Main

Salgreid -- The Oldies refuse to list the race of any standby-types they fight.  Why,
that is downright discriminatory! -- Oldies Spokesperson

Michael -- The boss says it is so neat of you to remember the pledge.  Those were the
days.....  Can you believe 18 projects one summer?  Yep.  18.  (sigh)  But 4h is now
dead due to Sea Of Gore. -- Oldies Spokesperson

Fi, no fee, and no fum, but a win for the Draggin' one! -- Draggin' Main

Ra -- A Letter Sweater is always too much protection for a God Of The Sun.  Yes! --
Letter Sweater

Shu?  If you go barefooted, you will fit right in with Smitty and his clan, but you
won't be happy at any pep rallies.  Really, I can assure you. -- Pep Rally

Rizzyn -- My, my, my.  Make that 6 Our Fathers, 5 Hail Mary's, and an even dozen
Glory Be's--and consider yourself lucky I didn't throw in any Rosaries! -- Confession

Ho, Ho, Ho. Merry Christmas to all from...
     The Oldies and Consortiumites everywhere.

All -- Just wanted to apologize for being an absent manager.  Hope to be a bigger
part of this fine arena in the future. -- Wretch

Smitty -- It seems our constant run ins with teams from the Consortium continues.  I
hope we get the better share of the wins in this particular arena.  Love the
challenge, hate to lose.  Congrats to Pep Rally. -- Wretch

Hammer -- Great to see you back and invigorated with the game. -- Wretch

JGW -- That is one sloppy team.  They need some tightening up.  lol -- Wretch

Blackstorm -- Where are you, man?  Lost in the nether?  Waiting to hear from you. --
Wretch

The -- Well fought.... -- Know and Despair

Genericky -- Scary Isn't It. -- Make Me Holy Again

Kornoth -- We put on a 7 min show.  Quality entertainment but no love.  Telorinthe
has a tough crowd.... -- Never Sleep

Eye -- Good fight. -- Unify With A Spade

Oldies -- Hmmm...what can I say.... -- Sea Of Gore

Telorinthe -- Seems our communications made it last turn, but not the strategy
sheets.  That's a Bad Sign.  Rather than send in new ones, I'm going to hope that the
strategies arrived late and will be input this turn.  So apologies in advance for any
obnoxiously rude down-challenges. -- Dark Oracle, purveyor of Bad Signs

0 and 5, huh?  Looks like it's time to start pruning some dead limbs. -- Michael
Eldritch
P.S.  You're welcome, Pep Rally, and Asserc, drinks are on the house again. *wry
grin*

Salgreid -- I'll be sending you a few DA id's in a moment. -- Michael Eldritch
P.S.  Time to step it up Azaziel....

All -- Ahhh!  So that is how you save an Ugly Hat?  You place it out of sight, afraid
to get blood on you Sombrero?  Well, I consider it a 'bad sign' when you opt out of
fighting to avoid bloodfeud! -- Azaziel, mgr. Death's Chosen
P.S.  Whoever this council is, that we supposedly voted for, should take note of
these sort of things, would you agree, Hammer?

The Saint -- Could you be so kind as to share your list of managers with us once
again?  I thank you! -- Azaziel ;)

     Here's what I have.  These are teams listed in last turn's newsletter.  If I've
     gotten anyone's name wrong, just let me know and I'll fix it. -- The Saint,
     keeper of lists

Jenna Haze -- Cheese, lady, it was a bum rap!  They just called me that because I was
the same size as some other Convicted Thief back in Alastari somewhere.  Like this is
my fault?  All those Alastarians are thieves!  Everybody knows that. -- a resentful
Convicted Thief
P.S.  Listen, if you go saying stuff like I was trying to take your purse, Salgreid
would get mad at me!  I really, really do NOT want Salgreid mad at me.  I mean, if
you'd ever seen him mad, you'd KNOW.
P.P.S.  Sure, he SAID he didn't mean to tear that guy limb from limb, that it was
just "the flimsy construction for which elves are notorious," but I know what I
heard, and believe me, he meant it.  He doesn't let ANYBODY talk about his mother
like that.
P.P.P.S.  Cheese, lady, why did you bring your handbag into the arena in the first
place?

Dead -- You were pathetic, which is doubtless why your manager wanted to get rid of
you. -- one of the Highest Elves in the arena system of Telorinthe

Dead 3 -- This is no challenge for me.  Get your manager to send me someone good. --
the Masked Stranger, aka Dark Champion

Katja Kassin -- You think you have the upper hand here, do you?  Your pretensions
amuse me.  My fellow members of the Mysterious Cult will not forget your scorn,
merely because I was here to be punished for a slight infraction of our Rule.
Infractive I may be, but I am a Member in Good Standing of the Cult.

Telorinthe Tuffies -- The SlaughterHouse 3 in Arena 45 has consumed my attention in
recent weeks!  Woke up last night and decided to Shake Things Up with My Stable by a
Phone Call to the Gladiatorial Commission!  No Time for a Spot This Cycle Either! --
