                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I do believe I have been had.  Rumor has it a certain manager made a small
fortune on my last fight and it wasn't mine!!!!
     The fight (from my painful perspective):  Apocalypse's first swing = my left arm
numb from shoulder to forearm.  His second swing = my right arm totally devastated
and armor destroyed in bicep area (somehow my weapon hilt got stuck to my gauntlet,
weapon not dropped--think someone used magic here but can't prove it).  His third
swing = the removal of all armor in my left buttocks area and about half of my said
sitting gear!!  (And for those of you who are wondering why I don't fight with an
undergarment on, I do, he just cut me out of them.)  At this point in the fight,
about three to five seconds, I decided (mostly due to blood loss and massive damage
to my ass) to fall to the ground and call it a day.  In route to said desired
position, Mr. A threw his right leg in front of my dangling weapon and screamed.  He
promptly nodded to the Arenamaster he could not continue.  I awoke from the assorted
healings with everyone patting me on the back and telling me how great I am....
     Studying the armor from my recent victory, it looks new except for three areas
that a blacksmith would be hard-pressed to remove as cleanly as Mr. A had done.  On a
hunch I had my runner go check the odds for a rematch.  I'm favored to win in a
rematch and the odds are insane for Apocalypse to win via my death!!!  SOOOOO...
     Long story short, I will be avoiding the dreaded Aimer and my challenge goes out
to Mr. Schicicles.  Should be a good one as we are the same styles and our last fight
went back and forth.  I hope you win so I can go hide in the Champ bracket until
Apocalypse moves on or gets timed.

                                          -- Duelmaster Filburt

Note:  A wise man follows the money and doesn't let success go to his head, lest it
be removed prematurely.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARVAT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at SECRET 
SQUIRRELS' guildhouse after a 1-4-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
8th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week B.I.G. went 2-2-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  My 
praise to DEATH BY DESIGN for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a 
skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  INFECTED IRVING caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 160 SWIFTLY and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DEVLIN DE TALIS put 
down UNGNOME SOLDIER, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  
Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on MR SCHICICLES as he bore 
arms against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster FILBURT.  The city has turned out 
in honor of MR SCHICICLES, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top 
team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARVAT "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this 
week's challenge seeking began.  THE WALKING DEAD is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of SECRET SQUIRRELS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  CHEAP WINS take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in ARVAT.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that SLUETHY LU posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
APOCALYPSE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand SLUETHY LU was bested by 
APOCALYPSE.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Look no more for S.H.I.E.L.D. in the arena or on the streets of 
ARVAT.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 6-7-0.  This 
week marked the last days of BOHICA JOE JR. who at 6-5-0 was dispatched to the Dark 
Arena by the command of BORN TO KILL's demanding management.  My condolences to KAOS! 
for their loss of a very promising warrior, PYRE.  PYRE went to doom before the arms 
of DURTAIN, a warrior of URT'S DURT URCHINS.  SKINNY PETE must hold silent, for this 
week he was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by CHICKEN SKIN of 
DEATH BY DESIGN.  Hail CHICKEN SKIN for thy victory!  Walk proud, warriors of OTTOMAN 
EMPIRE!  By striking down DEADHOUSE GATES you have avenged the honor of your dead.  
Your virtue is known to all in ARVAT.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he 
bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
