                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Either through luck or the avoids Assur sent in, Kill Kitten matched with Red
Alert.  A cruel trick to play on Howlin' Wolf's poor warrior, but better him than us.
While that young upstart brat might be able to make Kill Kitten look bad, the rest of
the Shepherds and Next Generation warriors aren't so optimistic on beating the nasty
cat.
     This turn, the goal is PP management.  So Assur wants me to match against Red
Alert.  That should ensure that the brat can run only only gain 2 PPs.  Most likely
I'll be running until graduation.  Assur wasn't upset about my performance, but my
learning has dropped dramatically.  And he says that while I'm not a poor warrior,
there is nothing to suggest I'd do better as a Champion than as an Adept.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TALCAMA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, WEIRD CUT OF MEAT 
fought FROGS FORM THE SKY and gained 16 points and contributed to SHEPHERDS' 3-0-0.  
RED ALERT has lost to URANIUM, falling 12 points, while helping make HIP HOP HEROES a 
1-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, AARON kept TALCAMA's warrior, M. 
CHARDINEE, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the 
top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Original Arthur's Last Stand 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the HIP HOP HEROES 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TALCAMA, what are you afraid of? 
And guess who avoided HIP HOP HEROES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was NEXT 
GENERATION.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, TALCAMA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TALCAMA and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission. 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $145.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI--please make your reservation by 
December 15 before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and 
people have been unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the 
tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all 
looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
