                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ink and Steel, huh?  Better to have STEEL and steel.

                                   Sweet Freddy

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TRANSEL needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  The guys at BLACK 
TIDE like really pulled together to get a 3-2-0 this turn, moving up by 5.  MVP award 
for HARD CORE?  INK & STEEL FOREVER's proud of it after beating LIZZIE BROADAXE and 
getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  LIZZIE BROADAXE got smashed by 
HARD CORE, and lost 15 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think SWEET FREDDY should let INK AND STEEL be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  PSYCHO SQUAD 
was TRANSEL's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep 
dark secret why BLACK TIDE's been avoiding PSYCHO SQUAD so much?  Or is it just that 
they're too scared?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  FLY 
returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at hers WINGED LEGION 
teammates...  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Well, a 3 str, 3 con, and 3 will is not all that good with a 21 wit and 21 df; bye
bye, Lich Fiend. -- Liam

Persistant Begger -- That was all wrong. -- Lich Fiend

Jorja -- Rain, rain, rain in your neck of the woods. -- Liam, *casting a rain spell*

Jorjaaa -- Bad luck on Chelesley and Dazey May who liked long walks in the woods. --
Liam

     Well, you walk in the woods wearing a red hood, you can guess what's coming.

Hello to everyone. -- Liam

New Team Blues, hah-no. -- Liam

Warwind -- Well, I can understand that.  I may not LIKE it, but I can understand it.
Just don't do it again. -- Shirley Knott

Liam -- One of the spy reporters on the Isle, I think it was Galen in Talahya, was
talking about flying places on a pegasus.  Insane notion.  First, those stupid
creatures are MAGICAL CREATIONS and thus basically unreliable.  What if the level of
the Arcanum fluctuates while they're in the air?  And then, they're predators.
Carnivores.  Only MORE magic restrains them from attacking and eating their "riders."
And then there are the magicians down in Ratan who have "flying carpets."  At least
the carpets won't try to eat you, but they're still MAGIC and as such, untrustworthy.
Seems to me that a lot of people up here in Alastari have allowed themselves to be
convinced that magic will solve any problem.  This is a self-defeating attitude.
People get to DEPENDING on magic, and the magicians end up in power, and if something
happens, no one can contest control with them.  What if the Arcanum fails entirely? 
This has happened before; it could happen again.  At which point, only us Adantri
will still have a functioning civilization.  Not that civilization is all that hot to
begin with, but it beats whatever's in second place. -- Jorja
P.S.  But... Mazatlan sounds like it might be so much fun... there's this little
restaurant on the shore of Lake Patzcuaro....

Memphis Mike -- Chop-chop-chop! -- Lizzie Broadaxe

Michelin -- What?  Dead?  Oh... well, I guess it'll be quiet. -- Ghost of Dazey May,
barely noticing a change in state

Torpedo -- You bully. -- Shirley Knott

Jumbo -- The bigger they are.... -- Son of John
