                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     First off to Ferrin Mondor.  You sounded like Homer Simpson in your last column.
"De fault the two greatest words in the English dictionary.  Woo Hoo!"  Congrats on
winning it last round by default and thank you for giving it up to me so easy.
     Second it pretty amazing to be up this high in the rankings with how few fights
I have actually been in.  But I guess my record speaks for itself and stand alone
here on top of the heap.

               IT'S SO LONELY ON THE TOP OF OLYMPUS!!!

     I hope to be here for a few rounds and the move off to greener pastures and
retirement.
     As for now I stand most humbly your Duelmaster.

Caprica

P.S.  Yes, Caprica the WORST show ever on TV.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KOLACT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DORA T. EXPLORA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested EUTHERINE PLANEDA and was 
awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DORA T. 
EXPLORA put down EUTHERINE PLANEDA, causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in 
the process.  Although FERRIN MONDOR made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to 
topple the reign of victorious CAPRICA.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in KOLACT seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KOLACT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in KOLACT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Tremors -- Hey thanks for all those skill learns.  Plus, thanks for helping me to
finally get over .500 on my win-loss record. -- (Fat Girl) Thong... err Trog

Firefox -- Can you find someone else to pick on??? -- Dora T. Explora

Chase -- Maybe so, but being right doesn't help when I'm dead.  It's seriously boring
here in the land of the dead.  Nobody has any conversation. -- Ghost of Terrine Orbin

Chase -- Yeah, but sometimes it's a great relief for ME.  Or throwing them against a
wall. -- Jorja

Caprica -- I was expecting something like this.  And I got it.  I suspect you will
make a more impressive, though abominable, duelmaster than I did. -- Ferrin Mondor

Bonnie -- Spending your nights going from club to club is probably not a good way to
train for the arena.  But if you want company, I'll join you. -- Deimoon Farr

Tony Soprano -- You're a beast in the arena, but your voice is amazing. -- Iayelle
Orbin

And we get a pair of Embezzling Scribes, or maybe the same one twice.  No complaints
from us. -- Monzar Orbisar and Eutherine Planeda
