                             Notes from the arena champ.

     To Ulf Sunderhelm, you should know better than to cross swords with your
betters.  Hope the pain is a good lesson for you.
     I am happy to FINALLY assume the throne and mantle of Duelmaster.  My real name
was supposed to be Fat Girl Thong but apparently that didn't get through the censors.
Can't imagine why.  Nothing more abominable than a fat woman in a thong.  Ugh!
Getting sick just thinking about it.
     I will now be off to retirement but first I need to stop by the Dark Arena and,
if the numbers hold, fight the Stone Golem.  Since apparently he's the only DA
Monster worthy to fight.

I stand humbly as,
Your Duelmaster

Fat Girl Thong

                                      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 ABOMINATION was 
unseated this week as VIKINGS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
2-3-0 record for the round.  IAYELLE ORBIN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested SKYHAWK and was awarded 14 points in recognition. 
In one of the week's more notable duels, TEA LEAF put down DORA T. EXPLORA, causing 
her to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon the will 
of others, Duelmaster TROG Dark Arena Challenged STONE GOLEM last week in a match to 
decide the fate of the throne.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as STONE GOLEM 
killed the Duelmaster, TROG, leaving ABOMINATION in mourning.  With bloody hand ADDAI 
has ascended to the throne of champions.  Is it that one which is spoken of in the 
ancient texts?  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this 
week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  ABOMINATION is feared.  This much 
I can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding ABOMINATION.  Indeed it was VIKINGS.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  BONNIE take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in KOLACT.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Fratsfa Slave -- You should go back to digging ditches and picking cotton.  You sure
ain't no gladiator. -- Dora T. Explora

one of you and tried to kill the last three I fought and my KD isn't even that high.
-- Human Centipede

Stone Golem/Dark Arenamaster/ DM Gods -- How is it that Stone Golem is the only

you have a chance to say it yourself?  Yeah, you can kick half a dozen asses at once.

Instead of beating me up. -- Monzar Orbisar
