                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I tip my hat to you, Sazerac.  It was a good challenge and a good fight.  And
now I'm gone, and that's good, too.  Details on request.

                                    Maire McAngus

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for FROZEN IMAGE, who flew up 23 points in 
the rankings after mashing KEEGAN GALL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was BANFF, who dropped 19 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with AXAZOH.  Drawing on all of his experience 
as a 12-9-1 warrior, SAZERAC went for the Duelmastership against MAIRE MCANGUS this 
week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was ON THE 
ROCKS' SAZERAC, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by MAIRE MCANGUS.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that PHILANTHROPISTS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of PHILANTHROPISTS' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause ON THE ROCKS beats feet every time PHILANTHROPISTS smiles at them.  
Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of ABEL BROWN, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.  Was it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had 
ICICLE challenge up 32 points in the rankings to take on TAMRA KAI?  Trading many 
whacks on the head and a loss for 3 recognition points, ICICLE shows that a beast 
doesn't have to be good to get places.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
LORD SNOW went after ABEL BROWN, who was higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, LORD SNOW bested ABEL BROWN.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  STARGAZER defied all odds and slew SPYMASTER in the Dark 
Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as SPYMASTER's meat is 
notoriously tough.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a 
very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

All -- Sorry about not being active in the newsletter lately.  I have been busy
moving back into the city and it has been both cumbersome and time consuming.
Hopefully, I will be able to find more time to post ads and columns from now on. --
Bartender

     Do your best, we can't ask more than that.

Stargazer -- I feel like I'm picking on you but you're a fun target practice.
Congratulations on your graduation.  Perhaps, come winter, we'll cross swords again
in the Freshman tournament. -- Scapa

Maire McAngus -- You're like green cryptonite to me, my manager says.  Don't know
what it means but he's always making these unalastarian references.  Glad to see
you're off to the Isle. -- Sazerac

Tamra Kai -- I miss one turn and when I get back you've turned into some superhuman
beast.  Unfair!  Especially since I quit improving a long time ago.  But I will
reclaim the style master title somehow.  It belongs to me! -- St Magdalene

Kailie Rhinn -- Oops, sorry about the down-challenge.  Must've been some old
challenge that was reposted for some reason.  Glad to see that you're alive and well,
though. -- Banff

Fratsfa Slave -- Well, I guess none of us is too happy about that match-up. -- Oban

Urban Jungle -- 1-12!  Really?!? >;) -- On the Rocks

Abel Brown -- I feel you man!  7-3 sucks! -- Oban

Aragorn -- Congratulations on Ale'chai's TV! -- Bartender

St Magdalene -- I couldn't remember whose turn it was to win, so I figured with you
being a saint and all, you'd be more patient than I would with a loss. -- Tamra Kai

Banff -- Ouch, those rocks are HARD. -- Kailie Rhinn

Second Wind -- Huh, you didn't give me a chance to get mine! -- Tarran O'Harec

Thieves.  Bah. -- Keegan Gall

Congratulations to Stargazer. -- Jorja and the Children of Llyr

We salute the tourney participants, with special note to Ale'chai Tallsky, tourney
victor in Eligibles. -- Jorja and the Children of Llyr
