                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Double column this time:

     The Grinch has met his match in the Dark Arena.  I'd have rather been the one to
send him to ADM in a coffin, but beggers can't be choosers.  Also, to you Rougelings
out there, you can come back.  Nobody over here liked Queens Logic, so I won't bother
to kill you before going to ADM.  You can get your Stick out of the mud, there is no
bloodfued this time. -- for The Grinch

     Farewell, all you camp counselors, I've enjoyed my time here at the Crystal Lake
Arena, but now it's time to expand my killing spree into a sequel 'Friday the 13th
vs. ADM'.  Hope to see you all there.

                                  Friday the 13th

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KOLACT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Defending his title for another turn, FRIDAY THE 13TH kept THE MOONDOGS' 
warrior, CRESDENE ARCT, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for 
me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Don Corleone's 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
MERCENARY from ROGUES GALLERY was KOLACT's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a 
brave attempt, HATCHET MAN from ROGUES GALLERY challenged up 20 points to fight 
TREMORS from the BACON MAKIN' stable.  HATCHET MAN perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he overcame TREMORS and ended up with 99 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  GOLDILOCKS was sent to the 
Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  Is it really true that 
KOLACT has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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

Footloose -- You took some dance lessons since last we fought I see. -- Hammer

Goldilocks -- Our fight was too hot for you, it seems. -- Duellist

Lia -- I can't start my thing until you let me swing.  Grr. -- Hatchet Man

Cresdene -- That match was mine for the winning... we'll be fighting again soon.
That's a promise.  -- Mercenary

Wizards! -- Yeah, dammit. -- Lunelle Merrin

Mercenary -- You do realize that the audience wasn't booing, jeering, and hissing
because you LOST, but because you're part elf.  We've had a wave of anti-elf
demonstration lately. -- Cresdene Arct

Hatchet Man -- So?  Maybe you should try a hatchet. -- Lia Hobern

Huh, elves are bad enough, but the Ambitious Guard is an ORC.  They're worse. --
Ferrin Mondor

And the Dangerous Criminal is a half-elf, too.  What is it, the Commission feels
sorry for these freaks? -- Simoon Terrat, not feeling at all tolerant today
P.S.  Yeah, I know, toleration is Good.  I still don't feel tolerant.

Our congratulations to Friday the 13th. -- Jorja and the Moondogs

FRIDAY THE 13TH (10-5899) BACON MAKIN' (550)

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), free 
airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the tournament info 
sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
