                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Good day all!

I greet you one last time as Duelmaster of our city, and after this turn I shall
never be heard from here again.  Not sure who the boss will have me fight--not even
sure if I'll be fighting.  We did have four of us represent Arvat in the tourney,
Starbreaker and Private Property were positioning for next time, Killing Machine and
I were going for it all in our respective classes, but not much was thought of us
apparently as we were placed in that infamous "other competitor" category, which in
my case made me around 100-1 odds of TCing.  I'm not discouraged though, I'm 12-9 in
my previous three tourneys and now I know what my "favorite weapon" is...not to
mention I will come back if I die, so I can truly let it all hang out.

I'm not sure what the future holds for the Call the Priest stable here in Arvat.  If
Noble's past is any indication, Killing Machine will likely never fight enough to
graduate--so you better have fun whilst you can, kid.  I've enjoyed your hospitality
Arvat, I feel pride in that three of my four losses here were to warriors with three
times my fight experience--not a bad thing to post on the resume.  Stylish, you'll
have to journey to arena #100 if you want that rematch.  I'll be there.

Later days, Arvat!
Locked In

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARVAT to see 
what's new.  Too bad, SARATOGA GLORY, but DEVIL ADVOCATES was just too good to be 
stopped.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but SARATOGA GLORY 
really goofed with their 0-2-0.  DEVIL ADVOCATES like really fought hard to move up 
to 1st from 4th.  Way to go!  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 
3 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it up, FISHERMAN'S WHARF!  MVP award for SILVER MINNOW?  
FISHERMAN'S WHARF's proud of her after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 13 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  PRETTY WILD's match with BASKERVOLE cost him a 
loss of 4 points!  What a putz!  LOCKED IN fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then 
quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome DIETER KWAN.  
Aren't DEVIL ADVOCATES proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said ARVAT's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  CALL THE 
PRIEST was the most avoided team.  Is a 60-31-4 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  
What kind of warriors are DEVIL ADVOCATES?  CALL THE PRIEST, an easy team to beat if 
I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can FISHERMAN'S WHARF's 
BASKERVOLE be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really 
the same?  TAD DEVILLE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged LEVEE LOAFER.  8 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought TAD DEVILLE showed great skill and promise when he defeated LEVEE LOAFER.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARVAT ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"

is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
