                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail gladiators of Rocanis!

Four turns as Duelmaster and as promised, another Duelmaster Column.  However, the 
odds of this trend continuing have greatly decreased.  It turned out the shadow of 
Turn 666 did not leave Rocanis without a whisper.  Undgari, the Rirorni the God of the 
Dead, patiently waiting since DA1 Dark Arena match on Turn 634 and has finally claimed 
him back.  While I nod my head in his passing, I suspect Mylar's quitely relieved that 
the Rocanis buffet will soon be back in the black with DA1 gone.  As with everything, 
DA1 always considered it a contest to ensure Mylar didn't earn any money on him at the 
buffet and he usually won.   

However, I suspect the sting of the losses won't last too long, as it seem the R.U.G.s 
have shown great favor on the Men of Steel stable as Nakor burst onto the initiates 
scene.  One fight and already an Advanced Expert?  You choose wisely.  

Speaking of skill trains. Pancakes, Advanced Master, are you kidding me?  There are so 
many tournament charged warriors now that the arena doesn't need torches anymore as 
its warriors provide a glow of their own.  I'm talking to you too, Vealzebub.  I saw 
you sneaking back into Rocanis.

I also want to nod my appreciation to my stablemate Rao for running interference last 
turn and this turn.  I know that challenge was hard to make, but there was no one 
higher than you and it increased the odds of a good match up for me.  It's for the 
greater good!  (In the background:  The greater good!)  Shut it!

Speaking of the greater good, it's time for the Duelmaster's feast at Mylar's.  So, 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

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ROCANIS games.  My praise to MEN OF STEEL for their 
3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  VEALZEBUB caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested JOMMY and was awarded 10 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, RIRORNI SOLDIERS put down BOSH, causing him to lose 10 
points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of MUD KING, 
for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole 
city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  ROCANIS, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is MEN OF STEEL, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of SKULL SQUADRON are catching 
the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  JOMMY take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in ROCANIS.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that RAO posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized GREYLOCK.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand RAO was subdued by 
GREYLOCK.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My hearty congratulations MUD KING, for 
thy revenge upon ANUSHA, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time she will know 
better, eh?  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 ROCANIS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
