                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, well, backed my way in after losing my third fight in a row.  I didn't really
want to be here but it seems I will be gunning for ADM tournaments rather than champs
or challengers.  I can't seem to learn anything from my fights which is unusual for
my obvious intelligence.  Must be the putrid air around here or something.  Well
whomever I fight, bad luck and here's to you dying! -- Spekter

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  WARRIOR'S after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to 
consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  
What's a move up by 8 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to KARNIVORZ.  Practice pays for ALLEY OOP, who pummelled 
MORTROX, to pocket 22 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 17 points to ALLEY OOP.  (Discrete enough, MORTROX?) 
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by IZZI'S CORPSE, of HOUSE OF 
RATS, who despite a 14-6-0 couldn't overcome JHANS' Number 1.  Word has it one team 
in JHANS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are JHANS' warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for JHANS?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Hey!  Where everybody go?  No Kill Fest?!  No contest?!  Must be worse than I
thought.  I say we go to Mordant and join the special Olympics. -- Buddy Lee
P.S.  Then again, you guys go and I'll keep an eye on things here.

Clover -- Second time wasn't a charm for you!  A mistake in my strategy caused my
first loss; I have corrected it, as you can see.  Nice try. -- Rirema

Olive Oyl -- Good riddance! -- Spekter

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
