                             Notes from the arena champ.

Continuing the Duelmaster Sis, real life saga ........... 

     See, my mom, Sis (Anna Beatrice) was born in 1923 to Grandma Miller (Lillie) and 
Grandpa Sykes (George). She had five siblings, Junior (George), Fleetwood (Kenwood), 
Juanita, Skeet (Leroy) and Pooty (Harold). (They had SOME nicknames in those days, and 
they used them exclusively.)  They lived in a big old two-story on Main Street in Tell 
City, IN, next to the USPS, and across from Citizens National Bank and The Five and 
Dime Store.  It was a great old river (Ohio River) town of nine thousand or so and 
quite industrially prosperous due to Tell City Chair Factory, General Electric, 
(vacuum tubes and motors) and Maxon Marine (boats and ships).
     Those were the good old days, of The Great Depression, World War II and The 
Korean War.  All the uncles joined except Pooty, who died in a car wreck at 16.  
Junior to the Army, Fleetwood to the Navy, and Skeet to the Air Force.  All returned 
from action in tact, and were wonderful uncles.
     Sadly, none of these great folk are left on this earth. Times, they are a 
changin'.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly IAYE games.  TANK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and was awarded 12 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ROSE put down ERINE, 
causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Although M. CHARDINEE 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SIS.  
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 IAYE "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
IAYE these days is MANNE'S MERRY MEN.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of LENPROS last week.  Busy avoiding MANNE'S MERRY MEN?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in IAYE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
