                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hmm.  Still here despite a brave attempt by Roger, as is befitting his name.  I
didn't get to use my excellent parry skills, unfortunately, rather I got to show off
my equally good attack rating.  It probably would have been a different story had I
not knocked him down.  Fortunately I did and I get to retain the title for one more
turn at least.
     I promised a story if I won again, so here we go -- I know a lot of people are
wondering how we Angels get our names, and, I assure you, it's not without reason.  I
was born to a peasant family on the outskirts of town.  My father worked at the
docks, unloading incoming shipments -- it was day labor but he was a hard worker and
most weeks he was able to get enough to pay our bills, if not keep the food on the
table.  My mother worked cleaning fish per diem for local fishermen.  She wasn't paid
for her work, rather she bartered for food.  If she worked a full day, we would
usually have a good meal, fish stew, a crab boil, baked fish, broiled fish...  That
sort of thing.  If there wasn't enough work, we'd get scraps and end up with a watery
fish soup...  Still, compared to some others, we were pretty well off.  As the third
of five boys, with one older sister as well, I was expected to actually attend the
local school, which I did sometimes, mostly when it rained.  Instead, I was usually
out in the streets with the gangs of urchins that beg for coin from travellers coming
in from the passenger ships.  Even the smallest coin would be a huge boon to my
family, so it was worth it.
     I found that I was pretty good at begging.  I was fast and clever and, I'm not
ashamed to say it, not bad looking, so I'd catch the eye of a wealthy matron spending
the night in the town, and with a bit of acting, I'd be tossed a tin jot or copper
wheel and then I'd be off running, trying to keep the other children from catching me
and taking my prize.
     It was a living.  And, surprisingly, I was pretty happy.  I enjoyed the freedom.
Most nights I didn't go hungry and there were plenty of folks passing through to keep
life interesting.  Unfortunately before long a gang of street toughs decided to take
charge of the begging trade.  They would take half of our earnings in exchange for
their "protection."  Which pretty much just meant they wouldn't beat us if we paid
them half of what we made.  Most of the beggars gave in, but I decided to try my luck
and avoid paying.  I'd grab a coin and take off without stopping until I got home.  I
know, it was probably pretty stupid.  One day I was spotted and followed.
     Not to make this a festival of complaining, they came for me one night, to teach
me a lesson.  After beating my father and older brothers, they decided to cut off my
right thumb to show me who was boss of the streets.  Somehow, and I'm not even sure
how, I managed to grab my mother's fileting knife and sank it to the hilt in the
chest of the lead tough.
     The gang scattered, but the town watch had already been called, because we lived
in the slums, they took a while to get there, and we tried to clean as best we could,
but they found the body and I was taken off to jail.
     The trial went very quickly, and, of course, I was convicted of murder.
     Fortunately as I was being taken to the gallows, a dark robed figure appeared
and spoke with the Duke.  I'm not sure what was said, or how it was done, but I was
then the property of the Dark One.  He explained that I would be trained as a
gladiator and that somehow, through magic, my abilities would be enhanced and honed.
I was given the name Murder after my crime, and here I am today.

     Murder

                                      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.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for ZOMBIE SQUAD, whose 0-1-0 this turn 
dropped them by 6 into 13th.  SECRET SQUIRRELS stable has parlayed this turn's 2-3-0 
into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, 
guys!  And let's see, TAKE YOUR LUMPS fought HANNAMARIE and gained 15 points and 
contributed to COLLEGE RADIO's 2-0-0.  JOHN MAC has lost to THOMASO, falling 11 
points, while helping make LUROCIAN GUARD a 3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and MURDER remains ARVAT's top warrior for another turn.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the SECRET SQUIRRELS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARVAT, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided SECRET SQUIRRELS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
CAJUN REJECTS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
ASSORTED's warrior PETROV.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  ROGER THE BRAVE of LUROCIAN GUARD had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 13 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought ROGER THE BRAVE 
showed great skill and promise when he won victory over PSIRENA.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe
