                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is nice to be back on the throne, even if it is for a brief time while I keep
it warm for Deep Thought's next warrior to come and own this place.  Assur says I
have a chance against The Great Gazoo, but it is only a chance.
     The arena is in a bizarre state, in that there are very few matchups here at the
top that have much meaning.  There isn't even a rock-scissors-paper game to play.  It
is simply an ordering of who is the best and on downward.  I suppose that is the way
of things when you have an arena with 5 bashers, 5 strikers, and a lunger for the top
11 warriors.
     Knowing that, I expect to be back next turn.  And for as long as I'm the
Duelmaster, there will always be a Milk Carton (with milk) next to the throne!

-- Milk is Out

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZUWAYZA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The CUNNING RUNTS guild has had a 
3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, MAGIC TODAY fought FREE PARKING and gained 15 
points and contributed to THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' 2-3-0.  DESERT PLANTS has lost to 
THIMBLE, falling 8 points, while helping make THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS a 2-3-0 turn.  
Well done, ZUWAYZA, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps 
MILK IS OUT is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  MINI ME challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone BASH BRO HOUSEMATE's warrior.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and MILK IS OUT remains ZUWAYZA's 
top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Drunken Ox until they win.  Maybe?  
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUWAYZA 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

Milk Is Out -- I suppose it is.  People keep putting it on cereal, and into gravy,
and all manner of extravagant things.  Water works perfectly well for many recipes.

Did Not Flush -- Strange Secrets Disclosed!  Hidden Purposes Laid Bare!  The Monster
in the Bathhouse!  Read all about it, story on page three, photos on page ten! -- The
Enquirer

Free Parking -- It was my pleasure to make sure that all tires in your ill-placed lot
were filled with mesquite thorns.  Drive on that if you can. -- Desert Plants

Kim Jong-Il -- Ah... how provoking.  I thought I was going to see a "Chinese bronze,"
and it turned out to be a bonze instead. -- Art of the World
P.S.  Not that you aren't a piece of work in yourself.

Dualopoly -- In interesting concept, perhaps I could transform it into gold.  I will
have to study this matter. -- Magic Today
P.S.  Spelling it "duelopoly," of course.

Did Not Flush -- The veracity of material reported in my pages is more a matter of
the angle at which you view it than it is of accurate reporting of picayune details.
The details are always accurate. -- The Enquirer

Eric Cartman -- My going away gift to you, a big fat hairball! -- Hair in Sink

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
