                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I finally got to a 50/50 record just in time to go to Advanced.  I have shown I
do belong with the better warriors of the arena by being a three-turn Duelmaster and
going to AD with three Master ratings and one Advanced Expert rating.  I will now go
to the Dark Arena and finish with a kill, I hope.  Onewolf will probably be sitting
here next.  He is onetough cookie.  Good luck to all.

                                         -- Dirk Darkblade

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ARUAK 
CITY.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  DEADMAN'S HAND now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  For every winner there is a loser.  
Speaking of losers, lets take a look at TUFT TUGGERS, who went down to 5th from 9th.  
Life is tough.  Advancing in the rankings was ANIMAL FARM who went from last turn's 
1085-626-37, to this week's record of 1088-626-37.  SINEW seems to have it's eye on 
the top team spot, and if they continue having 5-0-0 weeks they may get it!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SLEDGE, who flew up 28 points in the rankings after mashing 
FIONA STARMANTLE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was FILET MIGNON, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with SLY APPARITION.  Unlike most arenas, DIRK DARKBLADE 
managed to get his challenge off against the 0-0-0 SPYMASTER.  Going for the gusto 
and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was DARK ARENA's SPYMASTER, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by DIRK DARKBLADE.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad HELL'S  BELLES?  Big bad HELL'S 
BELLES.  Big bad HELL'S BELLES.  ARUAK CITY's afraid of the big bad HELL'S BELLES.  
Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  HELL'S BELLES + 
Weapons That go Boom = ANIMAL FARM + Avoid City.  And who is this BULLETPROOF MONK 
you ask, with 58 points and a 4-7-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  DIRK DARKBLADE defied all odds and slew 
SPYMASTER in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as 
SPYMASTER's meat is notoriously tough.  Proving again that ARUAK CITY is not rated G, 
SLEDGE of the NEVERWAKE slew the warrior FIONA STARMANTLE in a rather bloody bout.  
Let's look for a bloodfeud.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both 
yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

P.S.  Also congrats on the Lord Protectorship.  Well-earned.

Horsefly -- If there was a tourney prize for most buzzing, you would win hands down.
-- Filet Mignon

Din Whiteblade -- You looked formidable, but I smoked! -- Snow White, Proud Colorific

Jorja -- Thanks for the congratulations. -- Jackhammer

Shinketh -- I received your going away gift from the Commission and I was most
pleased.  I am humbled that you would be so kind to give me a going away match up
with a member of the despised Scarlet Knights.  I am happy to report if you missed
the fight, that I was able to slay the poor fool before the Arena Master intervened.
Needless to say, Doc Steele was rather pleased with me.  We doubt many warriors have
gone to AD with 5 kills from this arena in the past.  Thank you again, for your gift
of One-Eye. -- Jackhammer

This is not helping my efforts to catch up to your master. -- Doc Steele

didn't want to eat a little crow. -- Jon Flute

Harlin Dobbs -- Well, that was embarrassing.  People told me gladiation would be
painful, but nobody happened to mention the embarrassing aspects of being defeated by
a much less experienced practitioner.  Damn.  Maybe I'll have to start practicing. --

Our congratulations to Dirk Darkblade. -- Jorja and Krill Cavalry

Kennelworth -- I figured that now it's a new year, things would get back to normal
and I could get some decent writing done.  Well, news flash, they redefined normal.
Or maybe it's just because the tourney is treading on my heels here.  Whatever,
sorry, but no spot today. -- the Scribe

                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....
