                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sometimes a guy just gets busy.  Packing, and things like that.  Some people
tell you things like, "Get ready, I'm sure you'll graduate this time!" and you take
them at their word.  So you pack.  Then you go out and do your job and win again.
Then you don't graduate.
     If it was just wasted packing time that wouldn't be a big deal.  Hopefully, I'll
need to do that task eventually.  But somehow in the rush to pack I seem to have
neglected the very important task of writing a column.  My manager was not pleased
about this.  He seems to take such duties seriously.  So, it seems, should I.  So I'm
now writing this.  As for the missing graduation, it seems that while I have the
needed ratings, they are not all in the proper categories for a Total Parry.  Anybody
have a spare defense skill?
    That leaves Phlegm to deal with before I am done with this writing business.
Uhm, did you say lucky, Phelgm?  (Honestly, though, how can you talk with all that
stuff in your throat?)  I believe the arena newsletter suggested you were
"devastated" this time.  Now that doesn't sound like just luck.  You are welcome to
try again if you so desire.  We will see if my luck still holds.

Still your Duelmaster,
Chagan of the Vikings

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KOLACT will ever be the same.  And let's see, CIRIC fought LIA HOBERN and 
gained 15 points and contributed to VIKINGS' 4-1-1.  LIA HOBERN has lost to CIRIC, 
falling 11 points, while helping make THE MOONDOGS a 1-4-0 turn.  We should ask 
PHLEGM about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a 
warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that Don Corleone's uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  ABOMINATION has cause to stand tall, as they were KOLACT's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding 
ABOMINATION more than any other team we find VIKINGS.  KOLACT, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
VIKINGS' warrior HAGAR BLUETOOTH.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Congratulations go out to 
ABOMINATION, with GOLDILOCKS revenging a bloodfeud against SIMOON TERRAT of THE 
MOONDOGS.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, KOLACT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KOLACT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Demon -- It is good to have your team here, but I could do without the losses.  Nice
win, I shall let my higher ranked teammates have a shot at you.  No, not Ulf, the
other ones. -- Ciric

Chase -- It is good to see another team back in the arena.  Kolact is an arena with a
proud history and a proud future. -- Nomad and the Vikings

Chagan -- When are you graduating?  So I can keep challenging another warrior. --
Phlegm

Ciric -- That was a pretty impressive block of my critical shot when you're all
crumpled on your knees.  Too bad for you that you couldn't do it twice. -- Demon

JFK -- Congratulations, you're the first person since I got back to actually hit me
more than once.  I'm thinking you're a bit better than your record states. --
Goldilocks

Simoon Terrat -- Vengeance will be mine. -- Chase (mgr. of Abomination)

Footloose -- Well, maybe you should tighten the nuts then.  What if it falls off? --
Lia Hobern

Tremors -- This is bacon?  Very strange. -- Moon-Eye

Friday the 13th -- Nah, not this month. -- Lunelle Merrin

Tom -- That was one for Tweety. -- Ferrin Mondor

Obama Care -- Oops.  Don't know my own strength or something. -- Simoon Terrat
P.S.  Of course, you weren't doing so good, either, no armor, couldn't use your
weapons, that kind of thing.  But it was probably fate.
P.P.S.  And it does settle the one bloodfeud, even as it brings on another.  Proving
that there is truth in the "live by a sword, die by a sword" saying.

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
