                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well Caleam, just as it appears as RSI is announcing they are off to Baltimore, I'm
off to the Isle.  Nothing spectacular to write about in terms of a dueling career.
I'm a 11(1)-10(1)-8-16(1)-17-10-15 Slasher, Masters in Attack and Init, AdEx Decise,
and an Expert in Riposte, 60 learned skills, and all mode except for a +1 in Decise.
Faves are Hatchet, High/Very Low and learning attack.  My last fight will be against
the Dark Arena, then I'm retiring from my fighting career.

3-time Duelmaster of Caleam

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for COLORADO SPRINGS, who flew up 21 points 
in the rankings after mashing DELICIOUS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DE DE MAO lost to 
KHALHUMS DWARF and drops 22 points.  Unlike most arenas, BALTIMORE managed to get its 
challenge off against the 0-0-0 WURM KIN.  Going for the gusto and coming up with 
aught but bloody knuckles was DARK ARENA's WURM KIN, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by BALTIMORE.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  BALTIMORE defied all odds and slew WURM KIN in the Dark 
Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as WURM KIN's meat is notoriously 
tough.  This round goes to HERE TO PHOENIX, their 7-6-2 warrior, COLORADO SPRINGS 
slew the 7-3-0 DELICIOUS.  Stay tuned next week to see what happens.  The audience 
likes blood and there was plenty of it covering GOLDEN ONE as he was driven to an 
early grave by VISITING ORC of the CALEAM.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in CALEAM have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
