                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Thanksgiving morning was a whirl of motion and a cacophony of sound in the joint
guildhouse of the Angels of Pain and Devil Advocates.  The gladiators all were
rushing about, cleaning and organizing the dining hall and the servants were busy
decorating the study, the bar and the main entrance hall.  It was a long, long time
since the Dark One had come for the holiday and even longer since all of his
gladiators from across Alastari had attended.
     This year would be different, and they had to be ready for a feast for all 87
active warriors under the Dark One's banner, plus some of the inactive ones as well!
     All of the Angels and Devils were decked out in ceremonial armor, wearing their
finest garb and prepared to play host.  Pam Demonium, as current Duelmaster of the
flagship team of their manager was set to play hostess.  If the horde of internal
warriors wasn't enough, they had the added issue of inviting all the warriors and
managers from the arena as well.  It was going to be a wild time.
     Pam checked the large clock in the entrance hall.  The guest would be arriving
in half an hour.  Not much time remained.  But it appeared that things were really
coming along.  It would probably all work out after all.
     Just then, the head chef of the guildhouse, Menhorve, who had been working in
the kitchen since the guild opened 27 years before, rushed up to her, mopping his
brow.
     "Mistress, there is a... problem in the kitchen."
     Pam frowned, "What kind of problem?  Don't tell me that the ovens have gone out
again?"
     "No, mistress, not that.  It's something else..."
     "Spill it, Menhorve, we don't have time for this.  The guests could start
arriving any moment."
     The chef appeared genuinely distraught.  He took a deep breath and continued.
"You are aware that the Lady of the Wand has recently been planning the prize for the
recent tournament?  Good.  Well, the prize is that the winners can create zombies--
unnatural creatures from beyond the grave that would replace a deceased gladiator?
Well, she asked me for some advice with the recipe.  Hers didn't seem to work
properly, so she asked me for some suggestions.  As you know I am an apprentice to
the Dark One in addition to being a chef.  Well, I gave her some advice and tinkered
with her magical recipe.  Unfortunately I left some of my notes accessible, and one
of the sous chefs found them and thought they for the stuffing recipe for
Thanksgiving..."
     Pam groaned.  "Please don't tell me we have a zombie turkey roaming the
kitchens..."
     "No mistress, we don't have a zombie turkey roaming the kitchens.  We have
NINETEEN zombie turkeys roaming the kitchens.  We needed a number of turkeys for so
many guests.  Plus leftovers..."
     Out of the corner of her eye, Pam spotted a small, scuttling shape rushing down
the hall way.  She turned her head and as she did, the doors to the kitchen burst
open and nineteen large, succulent, fully cooked turkeys rushed out into the
corridor.  These were not slow, stupid zombies, but fast and vicious.  One leapt into
the air and began bludgeoning a nearby servant with its drumsticks, smashing his nose
and cheekbones and bearing him to the ground.
     Pam grabbed a morning star from the wall and rushed to face the meal gone wild.
"To arms!  Bring the guild to alert status!"
     The gladiators, trained for action, quickly grabbed their weapons and met the
onrushing zombie turkey horde.  Weapons flashed, servants screamed and the battle was
joined.  Pam smashed a turkey into pulp with a mighty blow from her morning star,
nearby one of the new Angels was cornered by several of the scuttling carcases and
she leaped to help him.  Another young gladiator was down nearby and the turkeys were
clubbing him and wing-slapping him.  Devlin DeSegize had skewered a turkey on an epee
and was fending off another with a hatchet.
     Pam smashed another turkey and was spattered with gore, gravy and stuffing.  She
saw Rue Lerohell hacking about with a greatsword nearby.  One of the other servants
was down, her throat torn out by several zombie turkeys and another one was feasting
on her blood and flesh.
     In the distance, she heard a bell, but ignored it.
     In a berserk rage, fueled by the fact that her first Thanksgiving as guild
Duelmaster was going to be an unmitigated disaster, Pam smashed every turkey she
could see.
     After a moment, the combat stopped.  The gladiators gasped for breath, their
weapons, their persons, the walls, floors and ceilings all covered with bits of skin,
gravy, juices and stuffing of smashed, mutilated turkey carcasses.
     Pam turned and looked at the doors.  They had swung wide, and a large mob of
guests stood in the foyer, jaws agape and perplexed expressions on their faces, as
they surveyed the carnage.
     Pam wiped grease and gore from her face and shrugged.  "Happy Thanksgiving?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARVAT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain in 
ARVAT, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--DEVIL ADVOCATES.  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing 
at jokes, observe LOST LEGENDS.  Last week they got 0-5-0 to drop by 6!  What's a 
move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, 
according to DEATH BY DESIGN.  LEGION OF SOULS posted a nice gain, to come in 11th.  
Everybody loves a winner...  Like a new team fighting for the first time and entering 
the official rankings, OTTOMAN EMPIRE got 4-1-0 to come in 8th.  SECRET SQUIRRELS had 
cause to celebrate, after KAMI FLAUGE got 23 points by beating NUTCRACKER.  
NUTCRACKER certainly had a baffled expression on its face, after losing to KAMI 
FLAUGE and losing 21 points in the process!  Like a flirtacious debutante, ARVAT's 
Duelmaster PAM DEMONIUM found herself the woman of the hour, being "invited to dance" 
4 times!  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as FOR THE GODLINGS! of NOTORIOUS 
met the Duelmaster.  FOR THE GODLINGS! found out that ARVAT isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in ARVAT is 
taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in ARVAT avoid APOCALYPSE.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the 
"warriors" of SAVAGE HORDE, so did that sorry team shy from APOCALYPSE  
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
I get a special thrill from seeing innocent boy like GURAGK from SAVAGE HORDE get 
pointlessly killed.  Good show, LYRICAL DREAM!  (No mercy.) Charity is unknown in 
ARVAT, and rightly so.  DEATH BY DESIGN exacted their revenge against LEGION OF 
SOULS.  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in ARVAT would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARVAT is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARVAT 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

     Pam -- Really liked your column! -- the Editor

Undercover Lily -- Boooo!  No DM Column!  Slacker!!! -- Pam Demonium

Sir Veillance -- I had no choice but to beat you.  Someone had to write a column! --
Pam Demonium

Arvat -- Tried really hard to bring back a TV for the home arena, but the best I
could manage was a 7-3.  Maybe next time! -- Devlin DeSegize

British Sea Power -- Now THAT was a bit of a surprise.  I know I'm fast, but
apparently my attack got much better in the tournament. -- Muffy

Savage Horde -- My apologies about my incomprehensible e-mail from last turn!!  I had
recently been to Chimlevtal to check on my squads there, when I ran across a report
from a new manager basically pointing out the strengths of his squad there.  I had
mistakenly thought you had given that report here...must be just my old age coming
back to haunt me.  Again, my apologies for the confusion! -- D. Noble

Guragk -- Interesting method of offense against me.  I saw the first shot coming but
couldn't dodge it--the second blow came from outta nowhere--I never even saw it!
Nice job--hopefully we'll meet again! -- Rack City

Jorja -- How about a Manager list to help out the new guy in 32.   Thanks! -- Hawk,
Mngr. of the Savage Horde

Rack City -- That was a quick one... -- Guragk

but I wanted to try it out. -- Makot
