                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hey there, Arvat.

     I'm on vacation.  Title fights, bloodfeuds, turkey zombies, real zombies.
I've been supremely busy these last couple of months, and I'm on the beach this
week, working on my tan.
     I have the scribe writing down this column, but I'm not doing anything
except rolling over to tan my back.
     Not too much to report this week, as it's been a little quieter.  I did get
a chance to go a few rounds with Brains McGee, who left some zombie matter all
over my armor.  Quite gross.  But I have had all kinds of fun with zombies
lately, so fighting him was a way to work out my frustrations.
     One thing about those zombies is that they don't quit, so you can hit them
a bunch and they keep coming.  Take Brains for example.  I hit the guy five
times for extra damage and he kept on rocking.  Definitely a good workout.  So
thanks Brains.
     By my calculations I get one more fight and then I'm off the to Isle.  I've
heard that I may get to keep fighting for a while, which is pretty cool.
     That's about it for this week.  I need to get back to concentrating on the
rays.

     Catch you later, Arvat.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to DEATH BY DESIGN, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SAVAGE 
HORDE stable.  It was a tough week for B.I.G., to drop 9 places in the rankings.  
Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, LOST LEGENDS has advanced 8 places in the 
rankings.  SAVAGE HORDE is no joke as it posted a 4-0-0 week advancing from 7th place 
to 1st place.  Hey everybody, watch out for FREY, who flew up 14 points in the 
rankings after mashing JEZZA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was IRONWOLF, who dropped 8 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with MUFFY STOFELES.  Drawing on all of his experience as a 
20-13-0 warrior, SIR VEILLANCE went for the Duelmastership against PAM DEMONIUM this 
week.  Our battling duelmaster PAM DEMONIUM has managed to hold the title, fending 
off SIR VEILLANCE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, SECRET 
SQUIRRELS.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming 
at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARVAT arena.  Did you 
hear that DEATH BY DESIGN was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of DEATH BY DESIGN's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch SECRET SQUIRRELS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to 
be fairly deft at running from DEATH BY DESIGN.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges 
were votes, BRAINS MCGEE would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't 
want to win.  Was it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had KAMI FLAUGE 
challenge up 36 points in the rankings to take on TRUST BUSTER 1?  A Carrion Bird 
Sellout:  KAMI FLAUGE 9-9-0 fights TRUST BUSTER 1 9-0-0.  (BYOB)  
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  FOR THE GODLINGS! defied all odds and slew 
HIGH ELF in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as HIGH 
ELF's meat is notoriously tough.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, BONE 
GNASHER was mashed by SHAGGOTH, who let BONE GNASHER know that killing members of 
LOST LEGENDS is a no-no.  Congrats to SHAGGOTH for revenging the death of his 
teammate (but more importantly, feeding BONE GNASHER a bit of dirt).  Ask not the 
elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARVAT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Miss American Pie -- While driving your Chevy to the levee did you REALLY have to
drive it over me?  Two tourney babies in a row...  Sigh. -- Muffy Stofeles

Catalyst

All -- Also, what are the arena's views on proper challenges? -- The Catalyst

Pam Demonium -- Using a BF to dodge me will only make my thrashing of you more
enjoyable. -- Sir Veillance
P.S.  Congrats on your defense of the throne, this should be your last turn here so
