                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Finally graduated my first Aimed Blow!  Aikido was nothing special, but I
enjoyed him tremendously anyway.  9-10-10-15-14-5-21, Ad Ex Riposte, Ad Master Attack
and Ad Ex Parry.  Adept with the epee and very low/very low.  He was blessed with +4
in parry.  I'm going to DA him and hope that Aneurism can move into his spot.  Good
luck in the fights (except against my guys, of course) and maybe I'll be lucky enough
to write another of these soon.

The Walkin' Dude

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LYRATILAN to 
see what's new.  MVP award for FENELLA JHEN?  THE MIDDLE WAY 4's proud of her after 
beating COL. MUSTARD and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  URBIN 
YATES' match with SUE CHURZ cost him a loss of 14 points!  Like DARK ARENA's HALF-ORC 
GUARDSMAN is sweating since he got Dark Arena Challenged by Duelmaster AIKIDO!  The 
crowds were amazed this turn, as HALF-ORC GUARDSMAN killed the Duelmaster, AIKIDO, 
leaving DARK FORCES in mourning.  ANEURISM gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't 
this mean people might try to kill him, too?  Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  LYRATILAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Kolter Neethe -- I'm not all that great at fighting, but at least I make a good
teacher. -- Kraken

Urbin Yates -- I'm more like an ambitious slacker. -- Kraken

     It's an art.

Mrs. White -- We're 1-1 now, so I suppose we need an obligatory tie-breaker. --
Stalin

The Happy Peasant?  How can any peasant be happy when he's snowed in?  Or any non-
peasant, come to that.  Cabin Fever Time! -- Tol Voram

So!  The sort-of-Honest Merchant DOES sell second-hand horse. -- Urbin Yates

They aren't even GOOD second-hand horses, if there is such a thing. -- Isek Krol

The truth comes out, the Happy Peasant is stoned to the bone. -- Fenella Jhen

Kraken -- Ah, a managed opponent!  That makes a pleasant change, especially since I
won.  I like that. -- Kolter Neethe

Heart-felt congratulations to Aikido.  It's great to come back from the past and
graduate.  We salute you. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
