                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Is there no one on this planet to even challenge me?!?

     Anyone?

     How 'bout now???

     I still (UN)humbly remain your Duelmaster...again...and again...and (OH!  You
get the point!)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KOLACT games.  Former top team BACON MAKIN' was 
unseated this week as THE MOONDOGS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  CRESDENE ARCT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested FLATLINERS and was awarded 20 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SIMOON TERRAT put down 
FOOTLOOSE, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has THE GRINCH in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KOLACT.  KOLACT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is THE MOONDOGS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of ROGUES 
GALLERY last week.  Busy avoiding THE MOONDOGS?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  GOLDILOCKS take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in KOLACT.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 KOLACT as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Friday the 13th -- OMG!  That's 2 in a row!  I love it.  PLUS you didn't break my
spear.  Unlike other unmentionable warriors here. --  Goldilocks

Lia Hobern -- I guess all I can really say is OUCH!  You're pretty good with that
Hatchet.  Stop using it.  And, hey, my spear is still in one piece.  Goldilocks
warned me about you and your breaking things.  Anger Management, maybe?!? -- Wizards!

Crimson Reaver - Oh, there will be payback for you and your Aunt Flo!!! -- (Fat Girl)
Thong

Lunelle Merrin -- Just when I started getting better you had to go all Mortal Kombat
on me.  My team shall avenge me.  Four turns, start counting. -- Ghost of G.I. Jane

Wizards! -- I totally agree. -- Lia Hobern

G.I. Jane -- Looks to me like you need to bribe the handicapper, or else issue
challenges.  He's out to get you.  And, it would seem that he did.  Sorry about that,
but it was probably faster than the Dark Arena would have been. -- Lunelle Merrin

Tremors -- I still don't see that as having to do with bacon. -- Ferrin Mondor

A stupid Fratsfa Slave.  Damn.  He didn't teach me a thing, though a win is always
good to have. -- Cresdene Arct

Jerry -- Good gods, we... we had a five-oh turn!  You clinched it for us.  Gods! --
Simoon Terrat

Chase -- Sorry about Jane, that was a bad match for her.  Lunelle will be available
for a bloodfeud. -- Jorja

Bacon Makin' -- I am prepared to receive your fury for your lost comrade. -- Stick

Bacon Makin' -- Overall, a poor turn for my bravoes against yours.  It seems Hatchet
Man and Duellist need more training before fighting Flatliners and Footloose again.
Stay deadly, my friend. -- Obregon

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
