                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The sun had risen an hour ago, but the cold dense fog still held a tight grip on
the city of Lapur this late winter morning.  Outside the arena the streets were empty
except for a lone figure hugging his cloak trying to find some warmth.
     Each steamy breath he took seemed to add to the mist around him.  Stomping his
feet the Rirorni tried to warm his feet and mumbled, "Where is that damned scribe, I
am going to freeze to death?"  Being from the south he wasn't used to the cold
weather.
     A few moments later he heard what sounded like someone cough and footsteps
approaching.  Out of the mist a commission scribe appeared carrying what he had been
waiting for.
     "Good morning sir, eager to see the lists are we?" grinned the scribe.
     Jailyn held back an angry reply and simply nodded before the scribe quickly post
the parchment nodded and disappeared into the mist.  Stepping up the list he quickly
scanned for his name.
     "Hmmm, I haven't fought him before, wait, didn't Gaeglin fight him a few turns
ago?" he asked himself rubbing his chin.  After thinking for a moment a smile breaks
across his face.  Reaching into his pocket he pulls a small piece of parchment out
and quickly notes the rest of his mates' opponents and turns back for the guild house
whistling tune.

Later that afternoon...

     Jailyn watches his opponent lose grip of his weapon as he is backing away.
Vindocomus nods to Jailyn and the arenamaster that he cannot continue.  Jailyn nods
toward his injured opponent and raises his weapon above his head in victory.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in LAPUR 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 TREKKERS is pushed out of top team by MID EARTH, who came from 2nd 
with a 5-0-0 this turn.  METAL MINCERS stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 4 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 6th place.  Good work, guys!  The 
MID EARTH guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, FIRE CRYSTAL fought 
GELLIUS and gained 21 points and contributed to CARDOW HUNTERS' 1-3-0.  ATTICUS has 
lost to GAEGLIN, falling 10 points, while helping make EQUESTORS a 1-4-0 turn.  
DEATHWIND FORGE challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
MID EARTH's warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, JAILYN kept CLAN CROW's 
warrior, DEATHWIND FORGE, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for 
me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  TREKKERS has cause to stand tall, as they 
were LAPUR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided TREKKERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was MID EARTH.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was MID EARTH's warrior 
LHISSON.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  MISTY RAIN of 
TRAIL OF TEARS had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a 
challenge which she lost.  I thought MISTY RAIN showed great skill and promise when 
she was subdued by COMMANDER DATA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that LAPUR has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 LAPUR 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
