                             Notes from the arena champ.

It's about time that I address you all.  I'm Dr. Kloord and I am the Duelmaster here.

Now that I've held the title a couple of turns I'm feeling a little more comfortable.  
I know word got out for my little 'magical mishap' and I apologize for all the 
confusion.  (Looks like HAL is STILL confused!!!)  I'm staying away from magic and 
sticking to fighting.

This turn I was challenged by Filburt who figured I would not be expecting him to be 
so bold.  He was right!  I was not expecting it.  However I have a style advantage 
over him and it worked to my advantage.  He took a few hits but then gave up.  

This turn I'm eyeballing a bunch of matchups that go the other way.  Lunger?  Slasher?  
Noooo thank you!

I'm going to try for the other aimed blow and see if we can get a bare fisted 
knuckleduster.  That could be fun!!!

Anyway, Arvat is about to become a ghost town as most of my teammates and many of the 
rest of you are off to the tournament.  Best of luck to you all.  I will be here 
holding down the fort.

                                          -- Dr. Koord

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARVAT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave B.I.G. a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, THE WALKING DEAD's 2nd moved them up to 2-1-0 place.  What's with STRAWMAN?  He 
actually beat GASTROPUB's LAGER, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at GASTROPUB.  LAGER lost 16 points to STRAWMAN.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe LAGER will provide more easy wins...  Another fighter (LITTLE DRAGON 
20-22-0) challenged another Duelmaster (DR. KLORD 14-3-0).  Life goes on.  LITTLE 
DRAGON was reminded on the sands why DR. KLORD is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to 
have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  ARVAT 
thinks DEVIL ADVOCATES and their 1563-903-73 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at STRAGETY, DAMMIT! couldn't face the challenges from 
DEVIL ADVOCATES!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in BLOATED BARBARA?  Hers 
15-16-2?  THE WALKING DEAD ain't talkin', but she's got 98 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...--

Hal -- Sorry that the personals last turn seemed to confuse you!  We will try to be 
less baffling in the future! -- Angels and Devils

Good luck to all Arvat warriors going to the Face to Face.  Let's try to bring back a 
TC or two to the City by the Swamp! -- Angels and Devils

The Whit -- I'm sorry for that ambush/downchallenge.  I think what happened was that 
my new challenges were not saved and my old challenges were re-used.  I apologize. -- 
Sol Col Lecter

The King -- Its better to be The People's Champion! -- Tenacious D

Steel Garten -- Is this how Arvat welcomes its poets and philosophers? "The battle 
begins" without so much as a "How have you been?" or "What have you been up to?" Very 
unfriendly. -- Little Dragon
