                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This will likely be my final fight in Morya.  Assur has me scheduled for a
future champions tournament.  It was a great run back in January, but while I was
able to beat Superior Snotling once, twice was asking too much (and it would have
taken three times to bring victory back to Morya.  Assur doesn't expect me to repeat,
but obviously I get to try.
     In the meantime, anyone know the best makeup to hide these horrible...

...Eye Bags

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MORYA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as PLANETS is pushed out of top team by DODGE BULLETS, who came from 3rd 
with a 1-4-0 this turn.  And let's see, URANUS fought MARY MEI and gained 24 points 
and contributed to PLANETS' 2-1-1.  STORM WARNING has lost to BIG GUT, falling 8 
points, while helping make DODGE BULLETS a 1-4-0 turn.  This turn EYE BAGS challenged 
KOROSHIYA ICHI in what was MORYA's Title bout.  Defending his title for another turn, 
EYE BAGS kept LORD OF DISCIPLINE's warrior, KOROSHIYA ICHI, from claiming the throne. 
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Arthur's 
Last Stand uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  EXPENSE ACCOUNT has cause to stand 
tall, as they were MORYA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided EXPENSE ACCOUNT stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was BASH BROS BODY.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
LORD OF DISCIPLINE's warrior PSYCHO DAD.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in MORYA today as MARY MEI was bid 
farewell to a 13-7-0 warrior, with URANUS of PLANETS standing silent and pensive.  
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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MORYA 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

All -- My guys got thumped last round.  Must be the budget cuts. -- Finance Manager

Big Gut -- You had some power in that gut and it was enough to veto my spending.  I
salute you. -- Prepaid Expense

Mary Mei -- I came; I challenged; I lost.  I suck.      Insurance (Thinking--
affordable health care is expensive)

Electric Bugaloo -- I am shocked! -- Consultation

Pop Target -- Well, somebody HAD to win for the Expense Accounts and it may as well
have been me. -- Travel (feeling vert Road Warriory)

Health$; humility$; honor$. -- Finance Manager

Prepaid Expense -- You have no idea how satisfying that victory was.  I'll just say
that I drank so much celebrating that I think my gut grew even larger last week. --
Big Gut

All -- It was looking like my team could be on a permanent hiatus.  But we are back.
-- Jupiter

Storm Warning -- ...!  ...! -- Mongo Crush

He says that was impressive.  He looks forward to seeing you as duel master. --
Psycho Dad

Eye Bags -- It's all yours.  I am not ready to hold the title. -- Water Rat

Lucky Looie -- We think "viciously subdued" is a bit too much.  But we think it was
an excellent fight. -- Psycho Dad

Pop Target -- Morya is a very cheeky arena.  First you take a short guy and call him
a dwarf.  Now you make fun of my name because it sounds like "itch."  I look forward
to seeing you around the Isle. -- Koroshiya Ichi

Slinger -- Beautiful.  Just beautiful.  The Lords had the most kills in the arena.
But you had to kill that poor beggar.  And now you killed a deserter.  Thanks! --
Water Rat

Farewell, Morya.  I enjoyed my time here.  I have faced some formidable opponents
here.  I even killed my one true competitor.  I have also met and beaten a member of
each style at least once.  My only regret is that I never reached my goal of getting
six kills.  Dewa Mata. -- Koroshiya Ichi

Our congratulations to Koroshiya Ichi.  Good work. -- Jorja and the Bullet Dodgers

Longshot -- We seem to have put snow behind us for now, and we're into "flood and
tornado season."  It's always something.  A manager in another arena complained that
I talk about the weather too much, but my feeling is that where I'm the ONLY ONE
TALKING AT ALL, I can pick my topics. -- Jorja
P.S.  The kicker is that THEY have to write a personal in order to protest!

Three-two-one, the countdown.  Not so bad.

Insurance -- I'm not sure I believe in you. -- Mary Mei

Travel -- You wouldn't've got me if there'd been more rest stops.  My joints locked
up from sitting still too long. -- Pop Target

Psycho Dad -- (mutter grumble complain) -- Lucky Looie

Mongo Crush -- You can't outrun a tornado, you know. -- Storm Warning
