                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Arvat!

I'm back again after a good fight against the stalwart Gelen.  He may have a poor
record, but he's not a bad fighter at all.  Gelen got off two impressive attacks but
was unable to penetrate my defenses.  And after a tip I received from one of his
teammates, I figured out how to best him.

Now things are coming down to the wire.  I'm 16-3 and have plenty of political points
in order to graduate.  All I need is one more fight, win or lose and then I move on
to the Island.  I'd really rather win this one, set the all time record in Arvat for
consecutive titles, and head off into the Sunset.  As it is I share the record, but I
want it all to myself!  Still, the options are to fight Gelen again, or Blackmoon or
Malignant Tumor.  I've beaten each of them at least once....  But I can't bring
myself to choose on to make a challenge.  I think I'll leave it up to the Fates and
go with the random matchup or let one of them challenge me, if they so choose.  Of
course I won't make it all that easy--and I'll have my teammates make challenges as
they see fit to muddy up the picture.  Only time will tell if I can do it one last
time!  It's rather exciting, don't you think?

Apparently the return of Mad Max and the Trainer was a false rumor, my sources tell
me.  We keep hearing that they will be back with all of their gladiators, but who
knows when?  At that, we have several inactive teams--Apocalypse, Big Lake Bandits,
Arvat Stonehold and Team Symbi were all missing last turn.  Hopefully they will
return and in force--Arvat can use all the teams it can get!  For that matter,
whatever happened to Fisherman's Wharf?  They are a key part of Arvat's history and
it would be a shame if they did not return!  Plus we can always count on them for
personal ads!

That's about it for now!

Until next week!

Shea Tann

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARVAT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DEVIL ADVOCATES is pushed out of top team by ROMAN HEROES, who came 
from 2nd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for TEAM SYMBI, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 
11th.  And let's see, APPIUS fought SLAPYOUINPUBLIC and gained 18 points and 
contributed to CAESAR'S THUGS' 3-1-0.  SLAPYOUINPUBLIC has lost to APPIUS, falling 16 
points, while helping make CRUCIBLE a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and SHEA TANN remains ARVAT's top warrior for another turn.  
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome 
Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  ECLIPSE has cause to stand tall, as they 
were ARVAT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding ECLIPSE more than any other team we find ROMAN HEROES.  ARVAT, are we going 
to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
ROMAN HEROES' warrior LUCIUS.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  DEFIANCE, does your manager know you're challenging down 
23 points to fight BLACKMOON from ECLIPSE?  I thought challenges were for warriors, 
not cowards looking for easy wins.  DEFIANCE won victory over BLACKMOON, is nothing 
sacred?  ARTEMIDORUS IV of ROMAN HEROES had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 13 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought ARTEMIDORUS IV showed great 
skill and promise when he subdued FUTARK.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ARVAT, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ARVAT again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Fox -- Be careful what you wish for!  A Roman onslaught of massive proportions could
strike you at any moment. -- Caesar

Beware to all who step out onto the sands!  Caesar's killers have been unleashed!  No
quarter will be offered!

A new Roman dynasty has arrived!  Bow down and worship at the Temple of Caesar!

Fox -- What can I say?  Reaver seemed to be a promising young lad.  Sorry about his
demise.  The drinks are most certainly on me.  CrosseyedMarry is better than her
record would show.  She has suffered from repeated down challenges from those scum at
ROMAN HEROES.  Let's drink to a good roll-up, shall we? -- Kodiak

ROMAN HEROES -- That's three turns in row of down challenges from you miscreants.  I
am forced to believe it must be personal and shall respond in kind. -- Kodiak

Snowflake -- I can admit when I get lucky.  I'll buy the drinks.  You can drink left
handed, no?  And yes I will be avoiding you this round. -- Slapyouinpublic

Woe -- I owed you that one.  You're still up on me so we shall have to do it again
some time.  Good luck till then. -- Bolt Thrower

Snowflake -- We'll forgive you for whacking Pete.  He was really close to night
fighting anyway.  The boss says to lay off and not bloodfeud you--he says we owe your
manager for our recent TC and to keep off. -- the Devil Advocates

Slayer -- Hang in there.  My manager says that he once had one of your style start
out 0-5 only to turn it around.  That warrior was once Lord Marshall of Free Blades
AND the Lady's protector in Primus.  So go for it! -- D. Tim Terr

Roland -- Now that you've graduated it's MY turn to try for the most wins in Arvat
history before graduation.  And as bad as I am, I might pull it off! -- Anguish

Mad Max/Trainer -- We know you're sneaking around out there!  Now get back on the
sands! -- Angels and Devils...
