                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Deathstalker walks into the throne room and says, "wow I can't believe I'm the
Duel Master."
     "It's cool, huh?" Daikkan says as he walks into the room.  "I'm not sure why
Luck Devil didn't fight last turn, but you know he will be back next turn.
     Deathstalker nods his head in acknowledgement.
     "You have to fight a lot better than you did last fight.  Luck Devil is one
tough warrior.  We will worry about fighting him tomorrow, right now it is time to
celebrate.  I'll see you in the tavern."

     Been a very long time since Crucial Taunt has fought in Malcorn.  I remember
this arena was a lot more active.  Hopefully it will get more active soon.  Good luck
to all and see you on the sand!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MALCORN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SABBATH win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WREN beat OGRE 
and OGRE lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like MALCORN has some guts 
at least, DEATHSTALKER the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  LUCK 
DEVIL challenged MALCORN's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as LUCK DEVIL 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?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  THE DEVIL'S OWN was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE 
DEVIL'S OWN.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in MALCORN to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this 
place-- Snide Clemens

Crucial Taunt -- And hail back at you, with sleet, too!  Good to see new (old) faces
on the sands again. -- the Greenwardens

A Userous Merchant?  Pish. -- Badger

Ogre -- So what is that a typo for?  We've been arguing about that in the guildhouse
for two weeks.  Little Biter thinks you meant to be Ogier, a Dane, but... nah.
Doesn't seem like it works for me.  How about Rogue?  Again, using all your letters
with one addition.  Or Gore? -- Blackoak

Timaran Dubrik, our Ambitious Guard, knows better than to annoy me at this season.  I
don't LIKE winter.  And it's going to be in single digits tonight.  And every one of
those digits frost-bitten, too. -- Wren

Eric -- If I can get AT you, I'll BITE you. -- Little Biter

Sara -- THAT is a taunt?  Weird.  But at least I'm not listed as a dwarf now. --

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
