     "It's infamous!"  Ardane, spy reporter for Andorak, scowled and drew back his
arm to throw his goblet through the window at the crowd outside.  Then paused to
drain the contents before resuming the about-to-throw-it position.
     "Now, now, it isn't THAT bad."  Desiree of Darkholm, always the voice of sweet
reason at these meetings, laid a hand on his, smiled, and guided the goblet back to
the table.  "It's just a little mistake, you know."
     "Ha!"  Debby Tonte of Free Blades stabbed viciously into her drink with an
umbrella.  "That's easy for YOU to say.  The Delarquans aren't complaining."
     "Of course not."  Galen of Talahya looked faintly envious as she pulled a chunk
of pineapple out of her glass and began to nibble it.  "That's because the Delarquans
are THE Masters of Kung-Fu."
     "You think some managers are complaining," Olaf Modeen said, "you should hear
what the GLADIATORS are saying.  All these rumors about the Aimed Blows having
'special enhancements'..." he shook his head.  "I know it isn't true, you know it
isn't true, the top managers know it isn't true--"
     "Of course it isn't true!"  Ketchum, spy reporter for Crysalis, matched scowls
with Ardane and said, "If ANY one style was going to get a special enhancement, it
should be--"
     "Not now, Ketch," Olaf said.  "Nobody gets, nobody has gotten, nobody WILL get,
special enhancements.  That's always been the rule, and we all know how the Greywand
hates changes.  The real problem--"
     "Try telling that to some of the managers," Debby muttered, peering into her
glass for more fruit.  "They don't want to hear it.  Every time I turn around, some
manager is claiming that someone got a special change and, you know, HE didn't and
it's all unfair."
     "The REAL problem," Olaf said firmly, over-riding her voice, "is explaining to
all the second-rate Aimed Blows why they haven't received any of these 'special
enhancements' they keep hearing about."
     "There aren't any special enhancements," Ardane growled.  "None.  Just managers
who noticed that the Kung-Fu Master is a lot more dangerous than anyone expected, and
have put YEARS into the study of Kung-Fu and learned how to really USE it for their
own gladiators."
     "Saved a lot on weapons, too," Ketchum murmured.
     "But people keep complaining," Debby Tonte said.  She fished one last piece of
fruit out of her glass and stared at it dubiously.
     "There WERE no special enhancements," Olaf said.  "There ARE no special
enhancements.  There WILL BE no special enhancements.  It's all a matter of deep
study and skilled management."
     "Like anyone's going to believe that!"
     "They have no choice," Ketchum said.  "If no 'special enhancements' were given
out, then none can be taken back.  It is the way it is.  What's the point in
complaining because the sun rises in the east?"

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I get it.  These columns were not designed for multiple Duelmaster winners.  No
way!  Usually, one puts everything into such a column and after that first one there
is not much else to be said.  But I will make a few comments anyway.
     My favorite breakfast is mush.  I like vegetable soup at lunch, and my cook
makes a great meat loaf for dinner.  How about you?  I'm no Southern Lady; I do not
like my iced tea sweetened.
     My favorite sport is jousting--especially NCAA basketball jousting.  I do like
to get my own exercise, but I am not going to tell you about that!  (wink)
     I will take on any comers for the crown.  Come and get me.  But beware, I will
be coming after you, too!  I WANT YOU!  (for exercise - wink)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARKERS games.  Fortune did not smile upon LEVIATHAN 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 18th position in the wake of a 1-4-1 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week PENUMBRAL MISTS went 4-1-0 to move up 7 in the rankings.  My praise to THE 
LAST SAMURI for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought 
round deserving of notice!  LRAPAUD PUANT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested VIRTUOUS SCRIBE and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ARAMIL DRALLION put down FAIRY 
FIRE HAMMER, causing her to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Most 
watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on OL' GRIZ as he bore arms 
against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster LADY MACBETH.  Not for nothing has LADY 
MACBETH in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven 
hers combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team 
has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  YAKUZA is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Apparently the stalwarts of Z GLADIATORZ 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.  GINGNIA take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in ARKERS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week BGAZ REDCLAW, at 4-9-0, departed ARKERS 
forever.  My condolences to CHAMPIONS OF STEEL for their loss of a very promising 
warrior, DESPAYRE.  DESPAYRE went to doom before the arms of ROCK GLAS HUT FUN, a 
warrior of ORCISH IDIOMS.  I must report the passing of DREYA, veteran of many duels. 
2-8-0 final record Hers was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  This 
week's duel proved deadly to DESPAYRE as she fell to the more renowned warrior, ROCK 
GLAS HUT FUN.  How will CHAMPIONS OF STEEL find revenge?  Dark alleys may hide both 
secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep 
vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARKERS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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

Blackheart -- We wish you well in your quest to go longer and harder. -- The Z Man

Fairy Fire Hammer -- Zing, zing, zing! -- Zinger

Blackheart -- Remember, long and far; long and far. -- Zanzibar
P.S. Catch that tune .....
     Long and far
     Zanzibar
     Long and far
     Zanzibar

Azaziel -- The TW5 is fought in DM47 (North Fork, Double-X, SCOMSS Swamp--winner
names the arena) hence it is in a slow arena.  It is a wonderful event.  Our
affiliate Oz manages Land Of Oz there, and he says he is looking forward to seeing
you there. -- Curator

Holga Kobb -- A downchallenge is one whereby a warrior with more recognition points
challenges one with lesser recognition points.  Visible fights is not a reasonable
factor, especially in this day and age of "hidden" tournament fights in a warrior's
record. -- Curator

Elizir -- That was a well-matched battle.  Thanks for the "exercise".  I salute you.
-- Lady Huntsman

V. Baltimore et al -- I submit.  You are by far my better. -- Lord Byron

Malborgia IV -- Your name must be a fine one for you to be the fourth.  I hope your
ancestors bought some bonds. -- War Bond

Damn.  Again.  Is this team cursed, or what?  Why are all my guys getting killed?  No
More Moore...ugly match-up!  Max seems to enjoy killing my helpless wimps, but
Baltimore is not really anxious to fight the timber walker again, so I guess it will
be difficult to bloodfeud.  Argh. -- Le Pentarque

Hum, Z Man -- Why this question to Bgaz Redclaw about being French? -- Le Pentarque

Elixir -- I'm afraid More Moore won't be able to read your ad! -- Le Pentarque

Michael and Azaziel -- You're both in, no worries.  However, due to some major
internal issues involving one of our members, we're kind of on standby awaiting
decisions and etc.  We'll know pretty soon.  The turf war is in 47 a slow arena, and
if you could both start a team there it would be great.  We may have some openings as
I have deactivated my team for the duration of the decision making.  I will diplo in
the future, and make sure to send me you addresses. -- Blackstorm

All -- I should be re-activating here while 47 is unresolved, then here anyway 'cause
I miss everyone!! -- Blackstorm

Aramil Drallion -- What is it with you, a death wish?  Talk about your reckless
challenges, that one definitely belongs in the category. -- Imber Lack
P.S.  Been a while since I one-shotted anybody.

Illmyrn Nailo -- I kinda like your name, it sounds like one of ours.  And I love the
way you lose fights. -- Morg Potts
P.S.  Kinda like us....

Kiseru -- Heck.  That does not do much to improve the quality of my day.  (sigh)
Sneaky and successful of you. -- Feordis Ink

Blood Stain -- Out, out, damned stain.  I can see why Lady Macbeth was so upset about
such stains, and no, I don't think soaking in cold water and hand washing is going to
help a BIT.  Drat. -- Kerbin Notts

Unholy Terror -- No, wait!  Listen!  I mean, STOP!  You can't do this to me!  My
religion specifically prohibits me from feeling anything but HOLY terror. -- Indior
Landis

Curator -- Thank you.  Now I see why there is so much difference in my warriors. --
Savant
P.S.  I agree with the Ghost of Haga Kobb I was 0-5 with 5 recognition points and
challenged a 3-0 with 20 recognition points and was accused of down challenging.  Did
I?

Lady MacBeth -- If I want to have a chance I'll probably have to hit you more than
once. -- Elixer

Nymira Nailo -- I think it was the kidney shot. -- Husk

Aardvark -- I will be avoiding you from now on. -- Kylun

Death Walker -- That was close, good fight. -- Warpath

Dreya -- It was your fight all the way, I just got a lucky swing.  Thank the gods of
luck. -- Bruiser

Lin Minmei -- Well, you can't blame me for trying. *wry grin* -- Nythia

Zaerena Nailo -- You chose a poor time to match me, lass.  I'm working on my mastery.
-- Bgaz Redclaw

Civilized Criminal -- I beg to differ. -- Morngrym

The Haberdasher -- No hard feelings.  Malborgia was due for an overhaul anyhow. --
Oniromancer

War Bond -- I'm working on the endurance thing...but I don't believe I'll EVER punch
a Golem in plate again. *wince* -- Malborgia IV

Lady Macbeth -- I would congratulate you on your continued Duelmastery, but I believe
you've said enough yourself. *wry grin* Salute! -- Michael Eldritch

Z Man -- Bgaz has met his share of your stable, and I don't believe he's ever
expecting an easy win.  Zip, zing, zowwy! -- Michael Eldritch
P.S.  No, I'm no French *lol*

Curator -- Your calculated response concerning ADM acceptance was enlightening.
Thank you for that bit of esoteric info.  And thank you, Savant, for posing the
question. -- Michael Eldritch
P.S.  Hope to see you both in DM 83.

Pauly -- You're probably gone now, but I wanted you to know there are no hard
feelings...Malvorgia III was flawed and slated to fight by torch light soon.  You
merely expedited the process.  Besides, Oniromancer had the chance to fulfill honor's
due.  Salute! -- Michael Eldritch
