                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Few things have given me so much pleasure as this victory over the Mother-in-Law
and thus over all mothers-in-law.  It's been a long time coming, and well worth
working for.

                                    Pendru Rost

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KALTOS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week TECHNOLOGY went 3-2-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this 
week was none other than Duelmaster PENDRU ROST himself.  Who here was not present 
for the title fight this week as MOSQUITO boldly challenged PENDRU ROST in order to 
strive for the Duelmasters honors?  The city has turned out in honor of MOSQUITO, for 
with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
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 KALTOS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  KALTOS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is 011510A, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding 011510A.  Indeed it was TECHNOLOGY.  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that SONNY posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized CREDIT CARD.  The results, you ask?  Well, the 
firebrand SONNY subdued CREDIT CARD.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of 
steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
