                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

I am saddened by the state of this once great arena.  My manager has said that he has
attempted to liven the arena up to no avail.  Despite this I am proud to be the
Duelmaster of Lyratilan.  There was only one available challenge this turn and that
was to my alliance mate.  As I am not yet ready to give up the throne I challenge no
one and will likely run into an assassin or merchant.  Till next time....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of LYRATILAN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  ERRATA?  Who?  
MADTOWN is the top team these days, buddies!  MADTOWN had cause to celebrate, after 
TINKERBELL got 17 points by beating DAVIA HANNAS.  A certain someone should cut down 
on the drinking and practice more, after losing 13 points to TINKERBELL.  (Discrete 
enough, DAVIA HANNAS?) MENTAL successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
THEODORIC of MADTOWN.  Does LYRATILAN have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  
Word has it one team in LYRATILAN is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of MADTOWN should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of ERRATA, so did that sorry team shy from MADTOWN Everyone is 
famous for fifteen minutes, and ERHLIE FAY is it right now.  Most challenged warrior. 
Isn't THE MIDDLE WAY 4 proud!  ERHLIE FAY found herself challenged by a warrior 22 
below:  PUPPET.  PUPPET of ERRATA kept his wits as he was bested by ERHLIE FAY.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Erhlie Fay -- Thanks for the skills, give me a turn or two and we will have a
rematch.  I think I can take you next time. -- Actin

Theodoric -- Nice "stab".  You had me worried, but JE told me to change the rhythm of
the fight if you started hitting me.  I tell ya, sometimes that guy can be a genius.
I assume you will try again.  Well good luck, JE has something cooked up for you this
time too. -- Mental

Quia Salian -- I am truly sorry if I hurt you...no...wait...no I'm not.  It was fun
poking you into submission.  I am not sure yet, but I think I really like this Long
Spear. -- COLJ

Xeno Yohl -- Interesting fight.  Bear in mind it is really hard to fight with all of
these strings attached. -- Puppet

Carnage -- Welcome back.  Have I kept up the Circle of Order's home arena well enough
for you during your absence? -- JE

Actin -- I was going to say, "bad match," and then I saw that you challenged me.  So
I have to come up with a new saying.  Hmm.  How about, "Lots of nerve, was it worth
it?"  After all, I have to say SOMETHING. -- Erhlie Fay
P.S.  No, I really DO have to say something.  You should hear Leeta on the subject of
gladiators who don't do personals when they fight!  Be glad YOUR manager isn't such a
stickler.

Colj -- Any relation to the Coljes who live near Zensu?  Actually, that's not their
family name, it's Farmer or Smith or something like that, but they live on the Colj
estate, tenants, you know, and it works out that they're called that now. -- Quia
Salian
P.S.  Just wondered.

Jocko -- Well, I put a socko on the Jocko, didn't I?  I love it when I get a chance
to toss of a "smart remark" like that.  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, even if
I did have a gross advantage over you.  Try making a smart remark out of a name like
mine!  Er, on second thought, don't.  No telling what someone might come up with, and
I'd just as soon pass.  Does that mean I should take back my play on your name?
Er...good fight, considering the mismatch. -- Beltran Foss

Bloodshed -- I wish you wouldn't do that.  It makes a mess of my clothes, you know.
Even with the "soak in cold water and hand-wash" bit, it's such a chore.  And, of
course, since I lost, I didn't get any of the gate purse, and that means no cash
lying around to spend getting stuff cleaned.  Being a gladiator isn't all glamor and
cheers. -- Davia Hannas
P.S.  Aren't you, well, kind of SHORT for a Fratsfan?

Puppet -- Darn. -- Xeno Yohl
P.S.  I hate getting hit with that.

Carnage -- Gosh, sorry, I thought you were Huckle Cat!  I'd've waited around to give
you another loss, but I didn't realize you were coming back. -- Velond Wok

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
