                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Arvat!

After a brutal battle with our former duelmaster, Roland, I, Ted Ickens, have taken
the title.  I have to admit that I am somewhat surprised that I was able to hold out
long enough to achieve victory, but my effort was just enough.  I will not avoid
Roland this turn, should he seek a rematch.  My goal was to claim the title and since
I was able to do so, I have no need to keep it.  I just prefer a good fight.  I will
give one of my challenges to Peter P., as he recently defeated me.  I am certain I
can do better.

The Devil Advocates are proud to announce that I am the 29th warrior of our
Guildhouse to hold the title in Arvat!  It is the goal of our stable that every one
of us should hold the title at least once during our careers.  Unfortunately, there
have been 3 or 4 of us how have not managed this feat, the last being our friend I.
M. Ceytin just recently.  I dedicate this victory to all of them!

This past weekend the tournament took place.  With luck the warriors form our arena
were very successful and we managed to bring home some awards.  I suppose we will see
by next turn.  May you all have a safe journey home.

Until next week, I remain.

Ted Ickens,
Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARVAT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, ANGELS OF PAIN's 
5th moved them up to 4-1-0 place.  It seems so recently people were saying LUROCIAN 
GUARD was washed up, finished.  But 4-0-0 moved them up 3.  I guess they're washed no 
more...  What's with DREAD?  It actually beat TEAM SYMBI's UNSER STALLWART, and 
walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ANGELS OF PAIN 
while they watched DREAD clobber UNSER STALLWART.  He lost 9 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, ROLAND wasn't good enough at 
persuading TED ICKENS to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  ARVAT 
thinks BIG LAKE NOMADS and their 79-77-6 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, 
give up...  The bums at TEAM SYMBI couldn't face the challenges from BIG LAKE NOMADS! 
No excuse for that!  What do people see in PETER PIQUIN?  His 20-11-0?  FISHERMAN'S 
WHARF ain't talkin', but he's got 81 points.  Maybe ANGELS OF PAIN's DEFIANCE is one 
of those guys who likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after 
challenging up 40 to PETER PIQUIN.  DEFIANCE subdued PETER PIQUIN (DEFIANCE getting 
27 points, too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!  Taunt your opponent HERON!  That was 
my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 23 points!)  BELLE ZEYBUL 
should have an easy win.  BELLE ZEYBUL defeated HERON.  DEVIL ADVOCATES calls this 
fighting?  In my day...  Fighting is a better craft than farming, FILLIS BOUY, but 
you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by ANGUISH, 17 points above you, is 
dues.  ANGUISH defeated FILLIS BOUY.  I bet ANGUISH could beat two-year-olds, too.  
Well, FISHERMAN'S WHARF knows who to set their sights on.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  GRU THE HATED larned his lesson (CUTLER BATES 
taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any FISHERMAN'S WHARF 
members with the same gusto.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places 
to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Belle Zeybul -- Dammit, you're scaring the fish! -- Heron

Layla -- That was a bit of a shock!  I was expecting some sweet young thing, and
you're a male golem!  Still, thanks for the skills.  Always useful, skills like that.
-- Peter Piquin

Mesharr -- Hang on a minute.  (turns over the page quickly)  Ah!  Well, I suppose if
I get the win, I shouldn't be upset about no skills for me.  Good try. -- Sarlow

Blackmoon -- Drat.  You shouldn't even be able to move under all that weight.  I'd
like to drop you into the harbor, but, as Heron would be sure to point out, it'd
scare the fish.  Drat. -- Fillis Bouy

Gru the Hated -- Is it just me, or is there some kind of bitter irony in this
situation? -- Ghost of Killer Minnow

Belle Z. -- (heavy sigh)  Oink. -- Heron

Here's hoping that Roland gets back on the winning track this week!  GO ROLAND!!!

Heron -- Hey, big fella, I'm pretty good spear fishing....  Then again you just found
that out.  If you want to teach me more standard fishing techniques, I am game. --
Belle Z

Lara -- So kind of you.  I was feeling pretty bad about all my recent losses.  With a
strategy tweak and you deciding to throw me a bone, I did pretty well.  I appreciate
it! -- Anguish

Roll Up Gods -- Come on!  We thought that beer would last longer than ONE
replacement.  It was good stuff!  These last few recruits have been hideous! -- Devil
Advocates stable

All -- Greetings from team Symbi!  I am probably a stranger to all, but used to play
as Dr. Von Flensing and Insidous Rex in Zuwayza and Kurukar.  Hardly any tournament
play.  At any rate, you guys have made for a difficult, but very enjoyable return! --
John (and here, Wulfhere Hausakluifr--anyone familiar with the Andrew Offut
character?  By Erlik's bowels and bladder, why on earth not?)

The Weaponmaster -- The very mention of you (and of Renalto Von Ron, another fearsome
beast) fills the hearts of mine teammates with dread and, for some reason, my recent
success in our engagement has done little to change that!  You are, in short, amazing
and I fervently hope we do not cross blades again! -- Stoltz Abn

Brutus -- Damnation!  Am I naught but a bladder of blood, to be poked and smashed for
your amusement?!?  Wait...do not answer that.... -- Iguana Tek

Skynight -- Och!  Our strategies almost seemed to be mirror-images of each other in
that contest!  Well fought...and thank the gods for armor! -- Unser Stallwart

Redblade -- A challenge from one completely unknown to me?  Makes me a bit "jumpy,"
if you will excuse the play on words. -- Solm Fatir

Ezk Eyejabber -- You mystify and confound me.  I would say more, but I am mystified
and confounded. -- Destry Jarls

Fillis Bouy -- Good show!  But you broke my favorite weapon and now you owe me. --
Blackmoon

Woe -- What a beating.  If I could have held on for a few more seconds.... --
Shadowspawn

I am constructing a fine new establishment in the area, the Stumbling Inn.  I hope
you can all come to enjoy the fine Honey Mead and the delicious black bread made from
the finest molasses. -- Fox, mgr Eclipse
