                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Duelmaster Title Three!  I am excited and honored.  Two Sam Talls and a Kung-Fu
Master; two total parries and and aimed-blow.  An interesting combo if I do say so
myself.
     I suspect that my probable opponent, Roid Floyd, is more formidable.  His style
certainly scares the dickens out of me!
     In other arenas, as the Duelmaster, I might challenge Sam Tall again, hoping to
avoid Roid, and allowing Contract Bridge to take care of him.  (again, hopefully)
But this is Telorinthe, and Slugbait is a friend, and most importantly, his team
appears to need all the breaks it can get.  What are friends for?
     May the happiness and peace of the upcoming holiday seasons fill your lives with
a pleasant glow.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TELORINTHE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see MELANIE OBERN win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
MELANIE OBERN beat CUSTODIAN and CUSTODIAN lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as ROID FLOYD takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks 
and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  TELORINTHE, I am losing what little hope I had in you. 
PUNY ORC PELOTON the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
it looks like OLDIES avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, SAM TALL was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  A big yahoo goes out to MELANIE OBERN this turn, for 
revenging MIDDLE WAY 21's bloodfeud against OLDIES' warrior CUSTODIAN.  Heh, heh, 
heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in TELORINTHE to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

All, I cannot tell you how much this particular last turn message "cracked me up."  I
guess you had to have been there.  "Liliputain Levi and slugbait -- Sorry about that.
I didn't realize HOW puny some of your orcs are. -- Melanie Obern" -- Coach (still
chuckling)

Slugbait -- Okay, 7-1 it is.  Start digging.  Perhaps you should hire some heavy
machinery? -- Coach

Look at that BIG point gain by those Orcs!  Sheesh!  They ARE bringing the heavy
machinery out!  Perhaps avoiding is a good policy? -- Coach

Oldies 3 -- NPCs 1.  Somehow this did not seem like a fulfulling round. -- Coach

Sam Tall -- It is always a pleasure to fight you as we both work on our Endurance
Merit Badges.  I think I am closer to finishing it than you. -- Life Scout

Happy Thanksgiving to all from... The Consortium

Whoa!  We're down to three teams?  Is this a sign of DOOM?

Slugbait -- But I'm a little girl, too! -- Melanie Obern

Roid Floyd -- That's no way to treat a little girl! -- Melanie Obern, who couldn't
resist the quip

Life Scout -- Yeah?  Well, if you find my life, let me know. -- Sam Tall

Bad Basso -- This is because I mentioned your squeak, isn't it? -- Petro Salm

Spanish Beef -- Too tough.  Should've been braised instead of dry-roasted. --
Tamarind Urlik

Postal Turncoat -- Wow, you just about went postal on me! -- Olovor Paris
