                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Arvat -- Another day, another title.

     Looks like a bunch of the prospective challengers missed this turn and only
Roger has moved up into striking range.  I'll let him decide if he wants a title shot
or not.
     There's not too much to talk about this time out, other than the fact that the
streets just seem so much more crowded these days.  And forget about trying to get a
dinner reservation.  I heard last week that most of the good restaurants in town are
now booked a week in advance.
     You can still get into the dives, but, really, why would you want to?
Fortunately as Duelmaster there are a few perks-- most restaurants will deliver meals
to me here at my office or at the guildhouse.  Fortunately all my guildmates are off
until after the upcoming tournament, so there's no one to bother me and steal my
dinner.  The Devil Advocates are all too proud to ask for scraps, but my fellow
Angels are not...
     I'm actually going to be opening a tavern in the city after I receive my Lord
Protectorship-- which will happen after next turn's fights, unless I get killed,
which is always a possibility.
     I just received backing and support to break ground on the Cry Murder! bar and
grill in the downtown area.  We're going to be specializing in grilled fish-- all
locally caught-- and beef items imported from the free ranges of Dullens.  And of
course we will have beer from all over Alastari and a specialized wine list.  I'm
looking forward to it.  I  may have to tend bar myself for the first few years, but
it's definitely something I've wanted to do and I think there's a definite market for
quality bar food and good drink in the area.
     We'll have arena memorabilia from my best fights and from those who want to
contibute from other arena teams.
     First round will be on the house for any arena teams who want to stop by!

Until then, I remain,

Murder

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARVAT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, 
for there are sorrows to drown for THE WILLBURYS, whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them 
by 5 into 8th.  Ha!  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see HANNANNA win a 
fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SPIDER MONKEY beat PETROV and PETROV 
lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
ARVAT may be getting bland, as MURDER stays top dog in the city.  The Welcome Wench, 
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?  DEVIL ADVOCATES was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks 
like DEVIL ADVOCATES avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  BARRY THE BOLD was challenged more times this turn 
than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now here's guts 
and stupidity all rolled into one, MAMMIFERE challenged up 30 to take on NICK E. 
DEMUS of DEVIL ADVOCATES.  And, oof!  MAMMIFERE saw stars around its helmet, after 
losing the fight, and disappointing the crowds, I might add.  I suspect either a 21 
will or a 21 ego on this one, but CARRO ARMATO has challenged up by 27 in an attempt 
against MATHEU.  My sides still hurt from laughing about MATHEU losing and giving 
CARRO ARMATO 20 points of recognition.  Ha ha ha ha!!  And we have RR in a challenge, 
going down 9 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought RR showed great skill and 
promise when he was overcame by BARRY THE BOLD.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARVAT's 
morgue.  More variety.  And sending CARKEN to the Dark Arena was supposed to be one 
of your better ideas, ARVAT STRONGHOLD?  Whoa!  I'll even buy ESPION a drink tonight! 
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good side!  Honor 
is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Someone ate all the birdseed.  I won't point any fingers but, I will say they might
receive a different kind of pellet next time around.  Rodents are rodents.

RR -- I have no idea why that was so easy for you.  Well done. -- Carro

Fizziguughooh -- Can I just call you Fizz?  I want to ask how it is you could only
teach me one skill.  How? -- Il Macellaio

Destitute Noble -- Uh...  Not sure if you read what I wrote, but the Dark One wasn't
telling me to learn parry, it's just a knack thing...  Of course one, of his other
teams has a TP who learns decisiveness, too...  We're all messed up... -- Murder

Damned squirrels seem to be all over the place in here...  They are out of control!

RUMOR OF THE WEEK:  Word has it that the city of Arvat is suffering from a housing
shortage.  Apparently the poplulation has surged by 35% in the past year and shows no
sign of decreasing.  Investment opportunities in the newly designed Arvat Towers
abound.  Entrepreneurs take notice!

Dark One -- I see we're starting up right where we left off... with your squad
dominating mine (even when I have the "upper hand").  Congrats on Tia's win; she
looked good.  Guess you still do train something other than parry... -- D. Noble

Arvat -- We're sitting this turn out, but will be back for turn 656; maybe I'll
unleash the full squad next turn... -- D. Noble

Is that a Floyd sighting?  C'mon over to the Notorious guildhouse.  Bring a dustpan
and a broom also, this place has three inches of dust on it. -- D. Noble

Secret Agent Ed -- Well done.  The cocky part of me wants to tell you to enjoy it
while you can... I'm sure you'll see me again and it'll be a different outcome.  But
since I've spent the last 36 hours in bed with a bad hip injury caused by you, I'll
keep my yap shut. -- The Rollercoaster

All -- Maybe it isn't just the squirrel infestation, thanks for the invite by the
way... us Cajuns like to drink, but perhaps it's most of this arena that is SCUM!
Seems like that's all we keep running into! -- The Cajun

Kano -- Since you put it that way, you're very welcome.  I did happen to enjoy the
demise of a challenger. -- Shog

Sorry guys but Roger the Brave will not be fighting as he is in training for the
summer tournament. -- TGG

I had to run on Maintenance this turn so I'll probably go 4-0 as I usually screw
things up. -- TGG

Lost Chicken -- I LOST TO A CHICKEN!!!  How am I supposed to face the guys back at
the gym? -- S.W.A.T.

Xessey -- I felt so good with nothing on I forgot to grab a weapon, silly me! -- Anna
Sassin

Zee Pee -- So you can draw Zs in the sand with your pee, I am not impressed. --
Undercover Lily

Love Rollercoaster -- What did that spy reporter mean by LUCKILY BEAT!  That fight
went just as planned. -- Secret Agent Ed

     We knew that, sweety, but we were trying to preserve your secrets. --
     Arenamistress Sugar

Nick E. Demus -- Congrats on the invite. -- Secret Squirrels

Oh, no!  Spied on by secret squirrels!  Welcome. -- Jorja and Fisherman's Wharf

And welcome to other new teams, which I often miss because I'm working from the e-
newsletters and generally go straight to personals and fights. -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Nick E. Demus. -- Jorja and Fisherman's Wharf

Roger the Brave -- It should be "Roger the Brave and DANGEROUS."  Ouch.  Well done.
-- Psirena

Take Your Lumps -- No, no, I want to SHARE them. -- Hannamarie

Il Macellaio -- Wow, I won a fight over someone with a fifth of my experience!  This
is... um.  Very um. -- Fizzgigue

Matheu -- Drat.  I'd like to see you assorted into buckets of fishbait. -- Catfish
Annie, today a bad loser
P.S.  Burying me in the sand was rude and unnecessary.

Tgg -- No surprise, you're probably slowed down by the difficulty of pronouncing your
name.  It sounds like somebody clearing his throat.  Actually, I was surprised to win
that.  But it was a pleasant surprise, so I'd be glad to invite you to our June Fish
Fry. -- Hannanna
P.S.  Just show up with an appetite.
