                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What the heck?  Utano won the fight but I got the title?  Why... oh.
Recognition points, because neither of us was the sitting duelmaster, the title went
to the one with the highest points.  Bummer for you, Utano, but there it is.  I've
got the minimum points possible for my record, and even your impressive performance
didn't QUITE put you higher.  I bet you get it next time, though.  Good luck.

                                    Bent Fender

P.S.  Just as a side note, I am living proof that you do not automatically graduate
if you survive fifty fights.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for JITNEY JOHNNY, who pummelled ZAG, to pocket 22 
points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, JITNEY JOHNNY was winsome, after 
beating ZAG and seeing her lose 19 points.  The arena was more crowded than usual 
this time, as UTANO faced CLIFFHOME's Duelmaster.  In CLIFFHOME, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, UTANO.  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for CLIFFHOME?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Zig -- For some reason, you remind me a bug I used to know. -- Kartikaya

Bertha -- Gods, you are a lot of woman.  I just can't handle you. -- Lum Busby

Zag -- Remind me to ask Kart if his "bug" had a sister. -- Jitney Johnny

Cult Member, pah.  Worthless. -- Thea Dozzier
P.S.  And his god didn't protect him, either.

Our congratulations to the Torchlight Kid. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

What the...?  Who the...?  Where the ...? M  Chardinee?  Sheesh! -- TK

Well despite the loss Torchlight Kid is off to the Isle.  As you can tell by his name
he was not even destined to fight in the regular arena.  After two Dark Arena wins
right off the bat I guess I had to give him a shot.  And I am very glad I did as he
is a fun warrior to run.  Stats 12-8(2)-15-7-17-20-7, the wit is why I sent him to
the DA.  Shows what I know, 44 learned skills in 17 turns of training.  That's better
than a lot of my 17 and 21 witters.  Master in Decise, Ad Ex Attack.  But he is off
to retirement in AD he is one I may continue to fight down the road just because he
seems to have a knack for winning. -- Otis

Okay, I win the Title fight but don't get the throne due to recognition.  What a rip.
Hopefully, Bent, it gets you some PPs to get that invite you so desperately deserve.
-- Utano

I will continue to fight here as long as I can.  Even though the fights are free due
to the awards, I still need to get some gold to the commission before they send
someone after my kneecaps.  Finances are bleak but starting to look up. -- Otis

     That's good, because the market for kneecaps isn't to hot right now, either.

Thank you all for enjoyable stay.  I never dreamed it would end like this.  I guess
street smarts pays off over book smarts sometimes.  Bent, free body work whenever you
need it.  Just look me up when you get to the Isle. -- TK
