                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I did it! I did it! I did it! Beat that old Blizzard-Rat this time! AND, I am 
Duelmaster! AND, I am a Lord Protector! 
     It was a cold, cold fight, for sure. The Rat had blizzards blowing everywhere, 
and I apparated (learned that from studying those Harry Potter Books so thoroughly) us 
to the South Pole with lots of ice and snow and ccccold. Even though he had mufflers 
and gloves and hats and hefty coats on, I braved it out and got him in a claw hold 
(learned that from Baron Von Raschke on TV wrasslin' many years ago) and put him to 
sleep in six. It was really quite beautifully done. And The Lady called. So I am 
finally, finally out of here, (Consortium grad # 1217) and heading to the Isle to 
retire. 
     Many of you will wonder what kind of godling is that South Pole? Allow me to 
dispel you of that godling-thinking conspiracy. Here is me: 13-6(+1)-15-15-15-14-7 
Basher. My only superpower (other than knowing lots of spells and holds) is my damage-
doing. Tremendous helps. Yes, indeed.
     So this is my last hurrah. And I am glad. I think I shall go out in style. Dark 
Arena, here I come.

                                          -- South Pole, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of STORMCROWE!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down. 
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, CANDY CRUSHERS' 
8th moved them up to 1-0-0 place.  What's with OTHER MOTHER?  She actually beat RAT 
PAK's BLIZZARD-RAT, and walked away with 25 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at YUPPIE SHELTER.  MAR-A-LAGO lost 17 points to KUNG-FU MASTER.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MAR-A-LAGO will provide more easy wins...  See how the 
Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's DARK CHAMPION?  That sort of initiative 
is how it got where it is now.  DARK CHAMPION was reminded on the sands why SOUTH 
POLE is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DARQUE FORCES!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at RAT PAK ain't reelin'!  DARQUE FORCES' 
mad!  Maybe GOING BERSERK's KURR is one of those guys who likes pain, or something.  
That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 35 to MIRAGE.  KURR subdued 
MIRAGE (KURR getting 16 points, too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, 
if SOUTH POLE can return from the Dark Arena.  Here's some advice:  study your 
opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Yes, Boss Rat, you are correct in your supposition that The Abattoirs are a Hammer 
team. -- U.N. (Feel free to call on your local U.N. anytime for free international 
information)

Blizzard-Rat, we are 1-1. Perfect! -- South Pole, International

Ontor, I was hot! You were cold. But, then, it is pretty darned cold in the Urals this 
time of year. -- Urals, International

What a letdown. A 1-4-0 performance on T-442, but I guess no one dying was a plus. 
Altho it's not like I have a team of godlings racing to the Isle  of the Eye, or 
anything. I guess I should be used to this team  under-performing. This may be the 
best group of 5 fighters this team has  ever had, but that doesn't mean they are 
actually any good either. (sigh)  Why do I continue to torture myself like this? Clues 
and suggestions are  welcome.

Send to: Boss Rat P.O. Box 79 Stormcrowe, Alastari. LOL -- Boss Rat (I promise I will 
read them all) o_0

South Pole -- I guess you found your winning strategy. Good fight. Now I expect you to 
write a duelmasters column. Don't shirk on your responsibilities! We'll see, (peeks up 
to the top of Newsletter) -- Blizzard-Rat

Nightshade -- You challenged me? 0-2 vs 6-12? Either you have: 1) an over inflated 
sense of self worth 2) decided to send an insult my way 3)  thought you'd garner some 
skills (you did) or 4) you wanted to die and provide an easy target for your teammates 
to Bloodffeud. I may suck but I'm not that big a patsy! LOL -- Mia-Rat

The Clairvoyant -- I was just saying to a fellow drunk at the local watering hole, I 
want a random fight with someone who has a dozen or more fights than me. Sounds so 
exciting. NOT! Especially when it's 18 to 5! -- Tia-Rat
P.S. (middle finger at the gladiatorial commission for their corrupt hyjinx)

Poppy -- I think you forgot an "O" in your name. -- Razor-Rat

Sandles -- I think that fight was my calling card to visit the dark arena, but I'm 
counting on the boss being to cheap or complacent to send me there. I thought I was 
better than I showed, but apparently not. /sad -- Zed-Rat

Editorial note from a member of the peanut gallery -- As I tour the many gladiator 
arenas of Alastari, it strikes me as odd how quiet it is everywhere. You'd think the 
commission charges coin of the realm to speak up and have your words of wit and/or 
wisdom published in the local newsletter.I can only surmise that the arena managers 
are lazy or apathetic  Neither is an excuse. Contribute to your local arena and help 
re-build the long lost excitement. Is everyone's life so overwhelmingly busy that 
taking 10 minutes or less to write something is to much to ask? Talk smack! Brag about 
a warrior! Say grats to someone! Go on a rant like me! Or go back to plotting your 
almighty numbers. Where has the magic gone? -- Boss Rat
P.S. I probably should've written this rant in the 100 or 102 NL, for greater 
exposure, but I got on a roll here and don't feel like being some crusader for a lost 
cause that publishes a rant in every NL. Besides, my money says nearly everyone 
doesn't even look at their respective NL's, so what's the point. I rant because I can. 
LOL  How I miss the Duelmaster 90's -- Boss Rat
