                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail all,

Sorry to disappoint everyone but Rillion has been absent for this turn due to travels
so no one is fighting and this will be it in the way of communication.  So I will be
relinquishing (hey who knew a 3 witter knew such big words) the throne for this turn
but I will make sure to challenge whoever takes my place.  See you all in a few.

Roland, the once and future Duel2master

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARVAT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  TEAM SYMBI turned their 2-3-0 turn 
into a 7th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, ANGELS 
OF PAIN, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see WOE win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, ROLAND has lost the Title of Duelmaster. 
Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
PSYCHOTRON takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they 
get this stuff?  From ARVAT's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BIG LAKE NOMADS was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DEVIL 
ADVOCATES.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, DROOL ROCKWORM was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice TED 
ICKENS challenging down 21 points to fight SARLOW, DEVIL ADVOCATES doubtless has some 
rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  Question now is, will ARVAT accept this 
sort of tacky behavior?  TED ICKENS beating SARLOW.  The insult, the....yech!  And we 
have THE ORPHAN MAKER in a challenge, going down 10 points for the fight.  Guess 
what?  I thought THE ORPHAN MAKER showed great skill and promise when he was bested 
by LARS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Gee, CALL THE PRIEST, ain't it past due 
for sending THUNDER ROAD Dark Arena?  What took ol' '9-8-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha 
aha ha!  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone else.  Anyway, this turn 
it came.  EVERYTHING ZEN's 5-7-0 has earned him the Dark Arena.  And what a stunning 
loss we have here, boys and girls, GEROGE ROFT of FISHERMAN'S WHARF has added the 
final loss to his 7-14-1.  Tee hee!  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what 
brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARVAT to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Roland becomes one of only 3 Arvat warriors ever to record 30+ wins!  Go Roland! --
the Roland Fan Club

Lars & PYT -- Well done!  Looks like we are one of Arvat's very few three graduate
turns.  Salute. -- Bill Berith

Rumor of the Week:  Mad Max was seen sneaking out of the city in the middle of the
night last week.  Word has it that he is secretly conspiring with the Roman Armies to
attempt to overthrow the local government....

Defiance -- Well, yes, I suppose that could be both angelic and painful, often at the
same time.  I prefer to pick my fights, as they say.  I would not, for instance,
waste time and energy defying the formidable foes in your bathtub, I'd find another
tub.  Or go kill a houseplant, if I was feeling nasty. -- Fillis Bouy

Belle Zeybul -- Well, of COURSE you hurt, you silly woman.  When a crab starts
nipping your toes, that's a sign you should MOVE.  You don't get points for standing
there and suffering, although the blood in the water does make good bait for those
fishing next to you. -- Heron

Psychotron -- Cheese, do you suppose they said you were "on top of the fight" because
you had knocked me down and were standing on my stomach poking around with that
darned sharp blade?  Guess that might be a clue, huh? -- Sarlow
P.S.  I taught you five skills and only learned one?  I hate it when that happens.

Gelen -- Actually, this time I was working with long green chiles, very tasty in a
casserole, though I would, given a choice, have left out the corn tortillas.  Who
needs 'em? -- Peter Piquin

Anguish -- I felt that. -- Geroge Roft
P.S.  When you knocked me down and pinned me to the sands.  Not, as they say, my
scene.

A whole slew of congratulations:  to P.Y.T., Lars, and Bill Berith, one and all. --
Jorja and Fisherman's Wharf
