                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is really no fun!  Being Duelmaster this way, I mean.  First, I luck into
the slot with a timely win over an NPC.  Sheesh!  Is that the way to earn the
Duelmaster Title?  Then I draw a match with a Wrathman, Lala, who is more experienced
and skilled than me.  And what happens?  I luck into a win, but overplay and she
dies!  Oh, my!  One could say it is better to be lucky than skilled, and that would
fit me.  But this is really terrifying!
     I want to be a TRUE Duelmaster, not a lucky one.  I want to be the best.
Perhaps I will get the chance to prove that I can be.  If so, I hope to be skillful
and concise.  I want to zap my drive down the middle about 300 yards.  I want to snap
a sweet iron to within six feet of the hole.  And I want to calmly stroke the putt
into the back of the cup.
     Can I do it?  Like visiting The Jack's casino, place your bets and come after
me.  I can play!
                        Professor Putt, Duelmaster II

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly IAYE games.  Former top team ALL JACKED UP was 
unseated this week as LENPROS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  My praise to WRATHMEN for their 4-1-1 week this time 
out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  BLIND LEMON 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
HONORABLE HAFALE and was awarded 23 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, BLIND LEMON put down HONORABLE HAFALE, causing him to lose 17 points 
of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the 
challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster PROFESSOR PUTT himself.  
This time out LUMBER JACK made its bid for the throne as it challenged PROFESSOR PUTT 
in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  Although LUMBER JACK 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious PROFESSOR 
PUTT.  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city IAYE.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  ALL JACKED UP is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding ALL JACKED UP.  Indeed it was LENPROS.  At the gambling halls I have 
started to bet money on SENATOR SMITH.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his 
challenge this turn against CHEVY PACE!  Do not the gods reward courage?  SENATOR 
SMITH it was that claimed victory in the bout, while also rising 24 points in 
recognition.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My condolences to ALL JACKED UP for 
their loss of a very promising warrior, JACK POT.  JACK POT went to doom before the 
arms of MIDNIGHT BARKER, a warrior of RED DOG GANG.  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in IAYE as ever I remembered them....and the fighters as 
ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Karadmon, Wrathmen -- I am sorry.  I am sorry for the death of the veteran Lala.
Professor Putt had no intention or desire to kill her.  Random matches are sometimes
worse than challenges, but that does not bring the dead warrior back.  We grieve your
loss.  May Lala fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- Lempro

Lord Protector Lumberjack!  Has a ring to it!  Congrats and well deserved. -- Lenpro

Lumberjack -- Did you have to use ME to claw your way to The Isle?  That hurt!  I
guess I should say congratulations, but rather, I shall say "good riddance". (wink)
-- Senator Smith (having gone 1-3 against the great lumberjack)

Lala, Wrathmen -- I didn't mean that.  I didn't!  I did not want Lala to die.  Mea
culpa.  Mea maxima culpa. -- Professor Putt (So upset that he got the "shanks".)

Chevy Pace -- I salute you for putting that first loss on my record.  Well done.  May
that be the last. -- Major Miller

Kaijhek -- Some days you get the bear; some days the bear gets you.  This was merely
my day. -- Honorable Hafale

Jack Tripper -- I shall see you at the casino.  My faves are Let It Ride and 3-Card
Poker.  Of course, I play some 21 and a little poker also. -- Lenpro
P.S.  I will bring the team.  Some of them enjoy a game of chance now and then.
P.P.S.  Pat Sajak, you do have wheelchair access, don't you?  (And someone to get my
coffee and to change my under garments for me?)

Congrats to Pace's Wild and All Jacked Up for their BIG point gains!  Well done. --
Lenpro

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Iaye Forever. -- Lenpro

Pat Sajak -- I suppose it depends on why you play.  A glance at the miniovers for the
last dead tourney suggests that between three and four percent of the losses are
deaths.  Comes of not using the Dark Arena, although I'm not sure which way the DA
would influence it. -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Lumber Jack. -- Jorja and the Red Dog Gang

John Wayne Pacey -- If you hadn't thrown the boots at me FIRST, I might have held on
longer.  But those boots... old, soft, so savory... I couldn't resist them. --
Midnight Barker
P.S.  If the Commission calls me a Fratsfan, when I'm so obviously a Dog....  Ah!  I
must be a BLOND Dog.  Probably a Golden Retriever.

Keira -- Maybe it was luck you won, and maybe it was you just being such a Dog-
friendly person.  That scratch behind the ears... perfectly done! -- Speckle

Jack Pot -- Oh... I thought the arenamaster said "pot luck," and I was all ready to
jump in and start eating.  Oh, well, another day. -- Houn' Dawg

That Shiftyeyed Volunteer is a suspicious person.  I could tell. -- Old Blue

Neor Fey -- Dammit, that was MY bone, and I won't share. -- Red Rover
