                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Of course I AM a godling!  How do you think I beat Ima Slayer (a mighty
sandbagging Khisanth godling) and Eldarran (recently returned, studly and experienced
Brethren)?  Both for the title.  I am good!  I am also now a Lord Protector!
     Okay.  Okay.  For my last DM Column, I shall tell you all about my godlingness
...get this.

     Well, I'm off to see the wizard, the terrible wizard of....  Get it?  That means
I will try my expertise in the Dark Arena in the final fight.  Wish me luck.
          Alamo, your favorite godlingish Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARKERS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see URA GONER win a fight and gain 37 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ZEST beat 
PORT-A-FORTRESS and PORT-A-FORTRESS lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  ALAMO 
Dark Arena Challenged SPYMASTER for ARKERS' Title this turn, and guess what happened? 
The crowds were amazed this turn, as SPYMASTER killed the Duelmaster, ALAMO, leaving 
SMITHSONIAN in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, URA GONER 
from YOU PAY I SLAY to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is 
not happy.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, ARKERS?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  ARKERS, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE CHOSEN the most avoided team?  What 
insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like STEEL PROPHETS avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  ORVILLE ROUSE 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but OCEAN 
SIZE has challenged up by 29 in an attempt against LELAND OLVEN.  Not that I'm 
surprised or anything, but OCEAN SIZE was defeated by LELAND OLVEN, leaving the 
latter lower for recognition points.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARKERS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARKERS to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of ARKERS.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

The Chosen -- That was a very fine spotlight.  Way to go Pyrat!  Well written and
well enjoyed.  Keep up the great work. -- Curator

Porta -- You think?   A little presumptuous of you to think we would meet for the
title.  Very Chosen-like.  (wink)  You had to get past Yosemite first, and, well, we
saw how that went.  Maybe some day.  (Maybe not.) -- Alamo, Duelmaster

Port-A-Fortress -- Well, heck, thanks for the easy win.  I almost broke wind.  (And I
guarantee you'd have known if I had.  Bwaha.) -- Yosemite (Hoping he had a decent
Challengers tournament so he can graduate sometime soon.)

Kotter Nahl -- A good and lucky win for me. -- Iwo Jima (workin' his way up that
hill.)

Steel Spar -- Well, you put it to me.  A attest to you being my better. -- Mayflower
(currently plugging and caulking lots of holes)

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Curator

An opher?!  We started back with an opher?  0-3!  How ugly!  That wasn't fun!  Thanks
for the lovely welcome, Arkers. -- Mr. Zee

Spotlight!  Good 'un.  Loved it. -- Mr. Zee and The Z Gladiatorz

DM Column, drab, but seemingly appropriate for the 4th of July. -- Mr. Zee

Pyrat -- You may be I nice guy, (I read your column.) but you surely didn't treat me
right, you Bum! -- Zinc

Leland Olven -- Well, you showed me!  Did you have to let the animals out, too? --
Zoo

Penny -- You snippity Slayer!  You had to beat me on my challenge, did you?  Curator
is going to give Khisanth a tongue lashing at The Face in Orlando!  So there! -- Zork

Ima Slayer -- Port doesn't like you, but that was a good fight.  I MUST get faster.
-- Lionik

Pugachev -- Good fight.  I take it you are another 'tourney only team'. -- Ria

Zinc -- Good fight.  I got a lucky hit in.  Let's try it again. -- Pyrat Ironforged

Yosemite --  Next time, I'll bring the sandwiches and you bring the drinks. -- Port-
A-Fortress

Dingo -- ***In an Australian accent***  Dingo ate my short sword. -- Ocean Size

Plymouth Rock -- I didn't land on Plymouth Rock.  Plymouth Rock landed on me!  I
don't know what this means, but Longshot told me to say it. -- Lionik

Alamo -- Congratulation on the invite. -- the Chosen

Curator -- You need to clean out some of the displays, though.  They're all dusty and
even moth-eaten. -- Jorja

Zephyr -- Unfortunately, no. -- Imerta Loel

Ria -- Delicate and entrancing. -- Orville Rouse

Our congratulations to Alamo. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Fielder -- If my refusal to pay will keep you from slaying, then I'm glad I'm broke.
-- Imerta Loel
