                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Pam sprinted up the stairs and into the lower levels of the Devil Advocates
Guildhouse.  The zombie was following her, and it was faster than one expected
zombies to be, but she was still well ahead of it.  As she passed some servants, she
shouted that they should get into their rooms and lock the doors.  One look at her
face told them she meant business, and they scurried away, slamming the large, iron
bound doors behind them.
     She ran into the great room of the guildhouse and shouted to the other
gladiators to join her.  Quickly she explained what had happened--apparently some
combination of the zombie prize from the recent tournament, combined with the
preservation magic used in the guild tombs was causing spontaneous zombification of
various dead beings.  First the turkeys, and now one of their own.  A long dead Angel
of Pain named Malevolence.
     As if on cue, the zombie staggered into the great room, blinking in the
sunlight.
     'At least it's not bellowing 'BRAAAAINNS' anymore...' Pam thought to herself.
     The other gladiators fanned out and surrounded the confused zombie.  Domination,
who still lived and practiced with the team, but who was on hiatus from fighting in
the arena, called for them to stop.  'Hold on a moment.  This doesn't seem like your
usual undead situation.  He's not trying to kill us.  He looks almost like he's...
remembering.  I knew Malevolence, we did our rookie training together, and the does
seem a little like he was when I knew him.  Maybe there's still some of him left in
there.'
     'That's different.'  Pam did see the glint of intelligence in the zombie's eye.
It wasn't simply a mindless killing machine.
     Domination stepped forward, hands spread wide.  'Is that you, Mal?  Are you in
there?'
     The zombie cocked its head to one side.  'Mrawaaaar!'
     'Damn.'  Pam nodded.  'It does remember.  Not sure what.  This is something the
Dark One is going to want to see!'
         ***************************************************************
     Later that evening, the gladiators sat around in the comfortable chairs outside
the Dark One's chambers.  He had taken the zombie in and was running tests.  Hours
had passed, and still there was no word.
     Suddenly there was the sound of locks being opened and the double doors swing
outward.  The Dark One strode forth to address his people.
     'You were all correct.  Somehow the magic of the prize interfaced with the
spells I have cast around the guild.  The magic was focused on Malevolence, and he
reanimated.  I have run a full battery of tests.  He remembers who he is and most of
his past life.  He appears to be unaware that he is a zombie, but I will break that
news to him at some point.  Until then, treat him as if he were a new recruit.  Get
him back into training.'
     Pam was shocked.  'You mean, you expect him to fight on the sands.  Isn't that,
like, cheating or something?'
     'I've reread the arena rules.  There's nothing prohibiting undead from fighting
in the arena.  If anything, the GC encourages participation by all the races of
Alastari.  Not that 'zombie' is a race, but one could argue that the undead, as a
whole, are their own form of being.'  The Dark One seemed amused, which was rare.
'In addition I will find it interesting to monitor his progress.'
     Pam nodded.  He was the boss, and what he said, went.  She could not help but
feel a little chagrined...  First zombie turkeys, then a zombie gladiator.  And all
during her stint as Duelmaster...

                                      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 SAVAGE HORDE, whose 2-2-0 this turn dropped them 
by 4 into 7th.  Ha!  LIVESHIP TRADERS turned their 2-3-1 turn into a 8th place rank 
in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, 
I'm impressed, a 3-1-1 is nice, but don't get cocky, DEVIL ADVOCATES, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
MISS AMERICAN PIE win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MISS AMERICAN 
PIE beat MUFFY STOFELES and MUFFY STOFELES lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
PAM DEMONIUM Bloodfeuded BRAINS MCGEE for ARVAT's Title this turn, and guess what 
happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, ARVAT may be getting bland, as PAM 
DEMONIUM stays top dog in the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARVAT's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  DEATH 
BY DESIGN, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DEVIL ADVOCATES.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BONE GNASHER was this turn's most challenged warrior. 
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, DAHAK of LOST LEGENDS has added the final loss to his 5-9-0.  Tee 
hee!  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  PURPLE DRAGON, a glorious 5-5-1 fighter, has 
passed away.  Gee, too bad SECRET SQUIRRELS.  And now a passing thought on a warrior 
dying young (GORT of DEATH BY DESIGN):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh 
well...  Seriously now, is it really honorable for STRYKKER from DRAGON RIDERS to 
kill GORT and give DEATH BY DESIGN the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  It's 
about time BRAINS MCGEE got beat for picking on warriors like PAM DEMONIUM.  Bravo, 
DEVIL ADVOCATES.  See you at The Swinging Aardvark.  Titanium shields and bamboo 
daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARVAT to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of ARVAT.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Brains McGee -- No hard feelings on your killing of May Monn...  She was a serious
underperformer for us.  However, we do require a bloodfeud.  Seeing as I'm the best
chance of actually winning said bloodfeud, we will get a re-match.  And you get a
title fight out of it. -- Pam Demonium

Day Dream -- Just my luck.  I fight the tourney baby...  Ah, well.  At least you
teach well. -- Muffy Stofeles

Whoa.  Team #2 in Arvat fought last turn?  Tell me THAT wasn't some kind of input
error!

THE WARRIORS (2) -- Wow, Team ID #2, very impressive except for the fact that you
have only fought 3 fights total in this arena.  I for one hope you decide to join us
permanently. -- Secret Squirrels

POLITICAL NIGHTMARES -- Welcome to Arvat except for the killing of my Sevant, I
forgot to BF this time not that expect you to be there to fight anyway.  I hope I am
wrong and that you do return and with buddies. -- Secret Squirrels

KHAOS -- You are tourney timing, I assume, but I hope I assume wrong.  Hoping you
will join us for some good old fashioned weapon clashing. -- Secret Squirrels

DAGGERS DEEP and Kaylbe -- Well howdy, stranger, I see you have come back to try and
thwart me...try as you will you just might. -- Gentleben and the Secret Squirrels

Pam Demonium -- WEAK WEAK WEAK!!!  Congrats anyway. -- Sir Veillance the ever eager
to have a shot at the throne but doubts your little slug of a self will give me one
;)

Nutcracker -- But not a dragon cracker I guess, hahaha. -- Purple Dragon

Strykker -- That was a surprise and THANKS FOR THE SKILLAGE DUDE!!! -- Kami Flauge
the ever grateful

Devlin De Segive -- Damn you! -- Oprah Tive

BUCHANAN -- You, sir, are a boob!  They forgot to avenge me this time but it will
come if you are brave enough to stay. -- Double O Sevant the Dead

Krion -- Good fight.  You may be a lot taller than me but I can still take a punch.
-- Bogrunt

Soulcatcher -- That was a good match.  Glad my sword didn't break. -- Bugrot

Sorcor -- I'm probably not the best matchup for you.  Didn't do much for our learns
either. -- Makot

Shaggoth -- I would like a rematch while wearing less armor. -- Ratghoul the Fearless

Howlin Wolf -- Where were you last turn?  You said I could bloodfeud you other
warriors since Lyrical Dream was a tourney warrior.  But then you did not fight
anyone last turn. -- Hawk

Makot -- So much for a style advantage.  And I did not even learn something new. --
Sorcor

Notorious -- Sorry about Triple Trouble.  I did not even believe I had hit him hard.
If you want to seek revenge, I will be here.  Of course, it was an accident--those
can be forgiven, right? -- Len

Gort -- Wow, look at all you have learned. -- Alyssum

Disemboweled Dora -- I think you have my manager thinking of doing some disemboweling
of his own. -- Mingsley

Bogrunt -- Good fight.  Seems you are not as soft as I had hoped. -- Krion

Gentleben -- Thank you for your warm welcome.  Maybe we can thrive here. -- The
Catalyst

All -- Another question:  What all does the riposte tactic do?  If I already have a
high skill base, should I try this to add to it?  Or do I first need to succeed with
a parry or defensive roll to riposte an attack? -- The Catalyst, mgr. Liveship
Traders

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
