Hail gladiators of Rocanis!

The gods of the plains saw it fit for me to remain as Rocanis' Duelmaster for a second 
turn. However, breaking Jommy's weapon in minute two did give me the advantage, which 
made his last hit a little less painful.  

I didn't challenge anyone this turn, as I'm unsure if I could challenge champions, so 
it'll be interesting to see which Men of Steel gladiator I match up to this turn.  

Speaking of Men of Steel, I was surprised to see Hochopepa with a torch in his hands 
for the night games last turn, but even more surprised he returned.  Congratulations, 
as that is no small deed!  I thought he won the previous match too.  I'm expecting to 
see great things from him, as no gladiator returns from the Dark Arena the same.  
Maybe it's a new found feeling towards life, but equally likely they don't want their 
manager to send them back again.

Speaking of returns, I'm glad to see Pancakes of Get back in the arena, which is 
another unusual gladiator name--oh wait, I get it.  I love play on words.  However, I 
think their manager will need to go back and Get his other stablemates where ever he 
left them.  I'd check the breakfast table.

Speaking of Get, it's time me to get going for the Duelmaster's feast at Mylar's.  
DA1, I couldn't get Mylar to waive your cover charge this time as it is renowned that 
when you lose a fight, you can really pack it away with comfort eating.  However, I'm 
picking up the tab for Jommy for allowing me another turn on the throne. 

Finally, to my fellow gladiators, I will leave you all with some words of 
encouragement.  Remember, each defeat in the arena is only a delay on the long road 
(or short in my case) to becoming the Duelmaster of Rocanis.

                                          Humbly,

                                          Anusha of Skull Squadron
                                          Duelmaster of Rocanis
                                          Grimwood, manager

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ROCANIS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with TARGUS?  He 
actually beat ROCANIS' AMBITIOUS GUARD, and walked away with 13 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at MEN OF STEEL while they watched MUD KING clobber PANCAKES. 
He lost 5 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  DA1 was 
reminded on the sands why ANUSHA is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ROCANIS thinks MEN OF STEEL 
and their 330-370-45 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SKULL SQUADRON ain't reelin'!  MEN OF 
STEEL's mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if 
GREYLOCK can return from the Dark Arena.  HOCHOPEPA looked pretty sick and surprised 
when he learned MEN OF STEEL is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with 
a 6-7-1?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young 
rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ROCANIS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

DA1 -- I was not excited to see our match-up last turn.  I had to wipe the sweat from 
my eye to see I actually won.  It seems my Achilles heel is minute 6. -- Rao

Jommy -- That was too close of a fight and breaking your weapons won the day for me. 
However, I was expecting you to teach me more than 3 skills, as my Wit isn't that low.  
-- Anusha, Duelmasater of Rocanis
