                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Assur has finally released me!  For years I've trained in his facilities, coming
to work every day to practice.  For years Assur has put me off, saying he isn't ready
to let me go and isn't ready to fight me.  My time has come and the persistence paid
many times over (My retirement income dramatically increased with the runner up
award, so I'm very pleased).
     As many of you will know, I was the Runner Up in the Adept tournament.  Now, I
will test my mettle and try to avoid a trip to Sheila Greywand by hopefully winning
in the Dark Arena.  Everything I've heard suggests that the resurrection process is
painful and I'd rather avoid that.  So farewell, Arvat!  Hopefully with my departure,
there will only be full bottles available!

-- Empty Bottle

notes from Assur:  A warrior that I felt was too good to retire completely and too
bad to enter into a tourney overcomes the odds and almost brings it all home.  Empty
Bottle after last turn looked:  11-6-15-21-9-11-11 STK Poor End/Good Dmg, MO/MO ML,
learns Attack.  I really thought he was favorite learn riposte.  He entered the
tournament with skills at 18/18/20/3/8/28 and finished with skills at
23/19/25/7/10/30.  Knowing his faves definitely helped a bit.  The funniest part is
that if he hadn't been immortal, it is highly likely he would not have even entered.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARVAT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as DEVIL ADVOCATES is pushed 
out of top team by SECRET SQUIRRELS, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  Now 
keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for NOTORIOUS, 
whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 18th.  THE CRIMSON CUP stable has 
parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 7 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  The THE WALKING DEAD guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, FLORA D'LUNE fought PUNCH PUPPIES and gained 19 points and 
contributed to THE CRIMSON CUP's 3-2-0.  BALKIR has lost to PUTRID PAULA, falling 9 
points, while helping make GIANT KILLERS a 0-4-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout 
was between SHEWISH GIANT and our Duelmaster EMPTY BOTTLE, making a Dark Arena 
Challenge.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as SHEWISH GIANT killed the Duelmaster, 
EMPTY BOTTLE, leaving FOUND IN THE SAND in mourning.  This incredible death has 
allowed, I might add, ABSOLUTION from ANGELS OF PAIN to ascend to the throne of 
Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  GIANT KILLERS 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 GIANT KILLERS more than any other team we find SECRET 
SQUIRRELS.  ARVAT, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was FISHERMAN'S WHARF's warrior CATFISH ANNIE.  More 
fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  I don't know about you, but 
ABSOLUTION challenging down 34 points to FISHERMAN'S WHARF's FIZZGIGUE, is not really 
worthy of ANGELS OF PAIN.  It pains me to see warriors take advantage of the system 
like this.  ABSOLUTION overcame FIZZGIGUE, as if it surprises anyone.  Tsk, tsk, tsk. 
HAPPY FEET, does your manager know you're challenging down 17 points to fight LISSIE 
POOLE from THE CRIMSON CUP?  I thought challenges were for warriors, not cowards 
looking for easy wins.  HAPPY FEET bested LISSIE POOLE, is nothing sacred?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has PEPPERMINT been sent to 
the Dark Arena by THE JOKER'S WILD?  And why with a 2-0-0 record??  The manager of 
GIANT KILLERS will not be pleased to learn that REDHAMMER, a 3-1-0 fighter, has been 
killed at the hands of LORDS OF CHAOS' ARES.  Is it really true that ARVAT has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ARVAT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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

Hey, Arvat -- Back in action after 16 years of vacation.  Good time ahead.  Look
forward to fighting here, going to be D.A.ing for a few turns to weed out the weak
links in my line up.  Cheers! -- Sir Jesse Jest, mgr Jokers Wild

     And we're glad to see you back.  Nothing like a jest to brighten the day.

Claire d'Lune -- I was having a bad hair day. -- Smelly Feet

Wee -- Oh, you hit me while I was trying to take a leak! -- Candicane

Lissie Poole -- Ha!  You fell for the rubber chicken trick! -- Happy Feet

Welcome to Arvat Mr. Fruit Bowl, er, Froot E. Bowl. -- Angels and Devils

Empty Bottle -- Congratulations and we're glad to see you go!  Now we don't have to
avoid you any more! -- Devil Advocates

Fizzgigue -- I meant to stop challenging you, really I did, but you keep teaching me
defense which I really can use...  I guess I'm trying to say "Thanks!" and "Sorry!"
at the same time. -- Absolution

We have all these apes, squirrels and now rotting corpses wandering around-- crazy
place these days! -- Angels and Devils

RUMOR OF THE WEEK:  Word has it that new construction will be starting on a new block
in town-- apparently Arvat is in the midst of a population boom and housing is in
short supply.  Investors are requested to attend a meeting at the Ducal Manor in one
week to hear about all options.

Bob Blackops Badger -- Well, I didn't expect to win, but you are a lousy teacher!
And, I think you were trying to kill me!  That is really just plain disrespectful and
mean-spirited.  Here I am, trying to help you pad your record, and I demand better
treatment!  You are no longer on my list of people to challenge, so take that! -- T
On

     Wow, harsh treatment!  No more challenges.

Gutted Gary -- Um.  I'm glad that was over quick, your guts are starting to smell a
little bit. -- Terri

Candicane -- That was a fun fight.  I'm afraid you might have given me too many
recognition points, that's a good way to get hurt when you move up too quickly. --
Wee

Angus Greywall -- This is a matchup I hope never happens again! -- Scrab

Flora D'Lune -- I think I was lucky to survive your first few hits. -- Wob

Our congratulations to Empty Bottle.  May you be filled. -- Jorja and Fisherman's
Wharf

Froot E. Bowl -- Welcome.  Glad to have you here. -- Jorja

Absolution -- Ah... once was enough, you know.  Whatever it was I did, I haven't done
it again. -- Fizzgigue

Tia Matte -- You look good in hot water.  With a little lemon and sugar. -- Psirena

Devlin D Segize -- You tall guys push your luck, you know? -- Catfish Annie

Redhammer -- Predictable, though unfortunate. -- Hannalouise

S.W.A.T. -- Senseless Without A Thought? -- Hannanna

Rotting Roland -- I would say rot in hell but that would be reduntant. -- Undercover
Lily

Hannanna -- Chop Chop Baby! -- S.W.A.T.

High Speed Dirt -- Well you sure helped me get traction, I appreciate the boost but I
wish you wouldn't stick to the bottom of my shoes. -- Miss Teary

T on -- This. -- Bob"Blackops"Badger

Sandy Eyes -- There was sand in my eye... and my shorts, socks, hair, navel and
places you do not want to hear about. -- Sir Veillance

L.P.D.M. Empty Bottle -- Congrats on the throne and the invite, maybe now you will
have enough money to fill the bottle. -- Secret Squirrels

The Joker's Wild -- Welcome back from where ever you have been.  So just how wild are
you guys?  Any attempts to domesticate you recently? -- Secret Squirrels

All Those That Participated in The Tourney -- Good show and congrats to those that
did well and condolences for those that did not make it back. -- Gentleben and the
Secret Squirrels
