                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail, Transel.

It is I, your bald and beautiful Duelmaster, Cueball!  Enjoying a drink of fine wine
at the Blue Rose, the Casino in town where our team hangs out.  Let me raise a toast
to those teams that are still active here.  Hail to the Drewe, Medol of Honorees, and
the Skarmy, too.  Hopefully, other will return or visit; real opponents are always
preferable.  I gave Flatliner a shot at the title, and I figured, whoever swung first
was likely to win, and being a striker with a master decisiveness, I figured that
would be me.  And a good thing too, after watching how the Flat Guy dispatched some
other opponents when they gave him the chance.  This turn, I will give a shot at the
title (if my challenge is accepted) to the Medal f honorees, and their gladiator,
Grunt 29.  Trying a slightly different strategy, so we shall see how things go.  If
victorious, I may get me my Golden Ticket to the isle.  If not, it may be because my
number came up.  You just never know.  If I do get the invite, I shall see if I can
bag me a Dark Arena victory, so keep that in mind for next turn.  Till next time.


                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRANSEL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  DARK PANTHEON turned their 3-1-1 turn 
into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, KREWE OF 
DRUID, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  TRANSEL saw the first turn 
for SWIM SQUAD, a 2-1-1, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to 
notice.  Take note friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see BUTTERFLY win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DOMINO beat GRUNT 
29 and GRUNT 29 lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, 
our Duelmaster GRUNT 31 challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
TRANSEL may be getting bland, as CUEBALL stays top dog in the city.  The Sultan's 
Tent, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From TRANSEL's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  KREWE OF DRUID was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like DARK PANTHEON avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, DOMINO was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TRANSEL's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in TRANSEL to get a drink than The Sultan's 
Tent!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
TRANSEL.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....

MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with
appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
