                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Finally!!  After surprising Trinket six months ago to take the top spot, I never
thought it would be this long before returning.  It just goes to show how tough the
competition is here in Lapur, especially guys like Gilean.  Well fought!
     My boss says I can't give out any of the specifics about myself, since I am not
going into retirement.  He is sending me off to the new arena opening on the Isle for
those of us that have not fought in tournaments.  He also informed me I will be
joining Mid Earth guild members and Lapurian Lord Protectors Beleg, Rindel and
Lhisson to compete there.

Duelmaster and Lord Protector Jehlch.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LAPUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team MID EARTH was unseated 
this week as CARDOW HUNTERS moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at TREKKERS' guildhouse after a 
0-5-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 7th.  Dark Arena anyone?  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
METAL MINCERS went 4-1-1 to move up 6 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 
3-1-0 record which SERPENTS HOLD managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such 
a record will draw challengers!  SWEET BIRCH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested PLUTONIUM PUNCH and was awarded 27 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BAG OF BONES put 
down ULPHOR, causing him to lose 20 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has JEHLCH in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In LAPUR "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  LAPUR, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names 
of thy guilds is BLUNT FORCE, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of METAL MINCERS are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after CLAYBANK.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week THE IRON LUNG, at 6-5-0, departed LAPUR 
forever.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, 
better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

Plutonium Punch -- Cute alliteration, but phew, what a mouthful.  Mind if I call you
Pee Pee instead?  And don't get too excited about your victory.  I was distracted the
entire "fight" by your manager yelling, "Choot 'em Lizabeff" from the sidelines. --

Bismeth Bender -- Congrats on the TC.  Well done! -- Scruffy Puff

Jehlch -- Congrats on the title (again) and the invite. -- Scruffy Puff

Congrats to Oremaster and Ora on bringing a TC back to Lapur from the recent tourney.
Well done!!! -- Visionist

Okay, a quick scan to see if there's anything in turn six-sixty-one that needs or
could benefit from a comment--

Gilean Yasur -- Well, if YOU aren't drinking that much, you've got it to spare, don't
you?  And besides, the duelmaster gets a percentage of the total gate receipts (a
small one, but still!), so you can AFFORD to buy drinks. -- the Cardow Hunters

Gilean Yasur -- Buy drinks for others if you want, but do NOT buy them for the Cardow
Hunters.  They drink too much as it is. -- Jorja, manager, Cardow Hunters

Casimir Pulaski -- Jorja says that your win over me was "predictable."  Or maybe that
my loss to you was predictable.  Bummer.  I don't like being predictable.  I think...
yeah, I'm gonna rain on her parade! -- Stormrider

Bag of Bones -- Well, I liked that fight.  Buy you a drink? -- Hardwood

That Irritated Housewife called me a BROOM.  I swept her away. -- Sweet Birch

Nothing like a little cheese when dealing with a Common Riverrar. -- Claybank

Nero -- Ah, but you see, I *understand* about fires. -- Grassfire
P.S.  Darned if I know why I said that to you.  It must be one of Jorja's alternate-
universe references.  Oh, well.

Current stuff--

First, our congratulations to the graduating Jehlch. -- Jorja and the Cardow Hunters

Pub O'Connor -- Yes, ale would make the grass grow--it's full of nutrients.  But it
also works fine if swallowed, which is my preferred method of using it. -- Grassfire

Sulu -- Heck.  I just can't seem to get up a good storm these days.  Too hot, I
guess. -- Stormrider

Khan -- Huh, I expected you to be Rirorni.  I know the Commission is biased against
us Rirorni, but still.  After all, the various tribal war-leaders are khans. --
Claybank

Gowron -- Would you say I was "vicious"?  I didn't feel vicious, but, of course, many
people react to fire by going into a panic, so I suppose it might have seemed vicious
to a pyrophobe.... -- Grassfire

Ulphor -- I dunno about Grassfire, but *you* were vicious, through and through!
Ouch. -- Hardwood

Cincius -- They tell me I dassent' say anything more than "good fight" to you. --
Sweet Birch

                                   Announcing!

          The No-Tourney ADM arena will be opening for business on the
