                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Lucky me.  No one to fight and I get to beat up on a stand in.  So I'm back, but
you guys are not chatting!  Other than the Greenwardens, no personal ads.  No chit
chat...
     But then again, Crucial Taunt showed up off of inactivity and hit 5 awards to
get a free turn.  Pretty cool accomplishment, and welcome back.  Looks like you were
last active here a long time ago.  It also seems very likely that Deathstalker and I
will fight next turn, as he's the only Champion.  Good luck, young fellow!
     I'm probably 5-6 turns away from managing an early graduation, so it may be a
while and you may have had more than enough of me by the time I go.  Fortunately, I'm
a benevolent Duelmaster, and drinks are on me at the local taverns tonight!
     I have very little to add, so I wish you all luck, just not as much luck as I
have!

Lucky Devil
Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MALCORN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, GREENWARDENS, since CRUCIAL 
TAUNT took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see OGRE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
OGRE beat BLACKOAK and BLACKOAK lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, LUCK DEVIL has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as DEATHSTALKER takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, MALCORN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the MALCORN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

warrior win and see you on the sands! - Crucial Taunt warriors

Luck Devil -- My name was a typo also but I don't think it was LUCKY for me, hehe. --
Ogre

Luck Devil -- Hopefully in a few turns I will be able to challenge you for the title.
-- Deathstalker

Someday, I'd like to see an overview that says, "X has a common style, well
understood by all," or the like.  Just for the change of it. -- Jorja
P.S.  Okay, it would probably herald a less-than-optimal warrior, but given that we
just went 1-4 today, would we even notice the lack of pizzaz?

Deathstalker -- The Audobon Society will be calling on you. -- Wren

We should rid ourselves of these Kung-Fu Masters.  Going on about how it's "kinder"
not to use weapons.  Bah!  Convincians!  Sneaky buggers.  Probably secret assassins.
-- Blackoak

Strangley enough, the Karnhorn Spy is a Karnhorn, though he claims he isn't a spy but
just a simple traveling trader.  Like I'm going to believe that? -- Badger

Ogre -- I expected someone more... intimidating. -- Little Biter

Sabbath -- Today?  I thought this was... Tuesday? -- Treeshadow
P.S.  I am NOT a dwarf, dammit!

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
