                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Dee S. Troyer stood in Arvat's Hall of Champions, the long, marble laden
corridor that led from the main gate of the arena to the access doors.  She'd
recently posed for her own statue to join the others in the long line of great Arvat
Duelmasters, but she was now taking the time to look over another of the more recent
Statues -- that of former guildmate and backstabber, Father O'Lies.
     Dee had gotten the word out to Duke Arnie, to the Isle of the Eye and to all the
other guilds that FOL had taken up with the swamp dwelling monster and was most
likely up to no good somewhere else in Alastari.
     Fortunately she didn't have to deal with him.  Actually dealing with HIM would
have been fine.  But the metal creature was another story.  It had trashed the group
sent to fight it, without the slightest problem.  Dee heard that the small army
gathered to stop the creature further along the coast didn't fare any better.  And
there had been Lord Protectors involved in that battle.  Sooner or later there would
be an even greater confrontation, but Dee wasn't at all interested in being part of
that.
     After all, she wasn't really a warrior.  The funny thing was that Dee had
started her career as a dancer.  But being from Arvat and the fact that her family
had no money conspired to have her take up a career as a waitress with a side job as
a dancer at a local theatre.  That was where the recruiter for the Devil Advocates
found her.  He's seen some of her dance moves and immediately offered her a contract
worth a small fortune for her to sign up and fight in the arena.  The contract
promised that when and if she was offered to join the Lord Protectors she would be
set up with a professional troupe and allowed to go her own way.
     She was shocked that anyone would want her as a fighter, but apparently the
recruiter had been right - she did have aptitude and her graceful dance moves were
parlayed into solid dueling maneuvers.  And now she was Duelmaster.
     Just a little while longer...

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARVAT games.  Former top team IL MALVAGIO was unseated 
this week as DEVIL ADVOCATES moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon THE WILLBURYS this time out 
who this turn suffered a fall into 12th position in the wake of a 0-3-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
ROMAN HEROES went 3-2-1 to move up 7 in the rankings.  My praise to ASSORTED for 
their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving 
of notice!  OPPIUS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested ISMAEL and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, SWERK put down HANNAMARIE, causing her to lose 12 points 
of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of SLITHER, for with 
its arena victory it may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARVAT.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  FISHERMAN'S WHARF is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of DEVIL ADVOCATES are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
PETROV.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  This week marked the last days of OCTAVIUS who at 
5-13-0 was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of ROMAN HEROES' demanding 
management.  ROSE must hold silent, for this week she was humbled in the arena by a 
successful Bloodfeud won by ARTEMIDORUS V of ROMAN HEROES.  Hail ARTEMIDORUS V for 
thy victory!  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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Artemidorus -- Wow.  You popped up out of nowhere and I thought I was in for it, but
it looks like I found my favorite weapon.  Just in time, too!  Thanks! -- Dee S.
Troyer

Tremundo -- So you're one of those 'stand and wait' sorts...  Hmmm.  It worked pretty
well for you. -- D. Dave Ell

Catfish Annie -- Whew.  I was nervous about that challenge, given our difference in
experience.  Looks like my skills I learned at the tournament took, as I didn't do
too badly.  If you don't mind, I'm going to try one more time for some more of those
sweet skills, then I'll move on. -- Domination

Caesar -- Welcome back!  Not the best return for the Legions, but now that you can
challenge/avoid, you'll be rolling along in no time. -- the Dark One

Domination -- Huh, I looked at my weapon, and I said to myself, where the heck did
this come from?  So Jorja, ever the trouble-maker, went back to my original file and
showed me that I've been carrying the damned thing all along.  I don't like this. --
Catfish Annie
P.S.  It's sabotage.
P.P.S.  Congratulations on having a tv challenge to use.

Lemmiwinks -- How is this a design of death?  I'm not getting it. -- Hannanna

Chardras -- Well, drat.  I thought you were a vegetable.  Nothing vegetative about
you, though. -- Fizzgigue

Sampson -- You pull down the arena around your ears, and Arenamistress Sugar will be
SOOO pissed! -- Hannamarie

Tomaso -- Hmm.  Tomato sauce. -- Psirena
P.S.  With garlic and, I think, a little basil.  Maybe oregano.
