                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay, the word is that I'm still duelmaster.  Good, I like being duelmaster,
even if it makes me a target.  And this Ellanseis the Wonderful, Elite Assassin,
well, we didn't want HIM as duelmaster.  So I bashed him around a little.  What the
heck, he was actually fool enough to come out with no weapons!  Figured he could take
me with his bare hands, I suppose.  He was wrong.

                                   Timor Unred

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly XOCHITHLAN games.  PAT RISIDE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested QUITA ROSALA and was awarded 
16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, PAT RISIDE put 
down QUITA ROSALA, causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  
Although VETERAN MERCENARY made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious TIMOR UNRED.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told 
me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city XOCHITHLAN.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
XOCHITHLAN these days is CRIMINAL ELEMENT.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of PROPHETIC OMENS last week.  Busy avoiding CRIMINAL ELEMENT?  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after FALLON GRIMM.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that SWIRLS AND ARCS posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized FALLON GRIMM.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand SWIRLS 
AND ARCS was defeated by FALLON GRIMM.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of 
steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in XOCHITHLAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --
Tripwire

Terror-Dactyl -- After what happened to you guys the last time you were hit by
something that left a crater, I understand perfectly why you were terrorized to see
me. -- Crator's Cause

     Because they turned into birds?  Nothing terrifying about being a bird, surely?

Tank-Losaurus -- I can't fade out like that!  Hope you're not topped off yet, cause I
plan to fill you up. -- Misty Form

BoB -- Swirl you around and remove a few arcs and we can make you ODD which I though
it was after wearing my arm out and then you not giving me any learns. -- Swirls and
Arcs

Udarn Voyl -- Thanks for the leg up!  I'm glad you were able to get that off your
chest.  My blade was sharp. -- Ripple Causer

Steg-O-Sore -- I brought you to the brink and you fell off.  I didn't make you
extinct yet though.  You still have some time left. -- World Brink

Udarn Voyl -- Seems you're onto something.  What I drank, good or bad, loosened me up
enough for a victory finally! -- World Brink

Ah, I see that this is going to be one of those "Adventures in Personals-Writing."
We got four fights but no newsletter.  Okay, we can deal with this....

Hulagei, Rirorni Officer -- You should probably have stayed with some job you could
do mounted.  The way your left hand kept groping for the reins, and you leaned into
the turns, and... well, you practically defeated yourself there. -- Quita Rosala

Ripple Causer -- But what's the POINT in ripples?  I've been told that they make the
potato chips crisper or something, but who needs potato chips? -- Udarn Voyl

Pat Riside -- I have probably said, and if so I repeat, I'm glad I'm not your daddy.
Nasty little ingrate, aren't you? -- Fallon Grimm
P.S.  Looks like the fans agreed with my analysis, since they made me Popularity
Leader and This Week's Favorite.

We only had one tourney participant?  Well... we salute him. -- Jorja and the Middle
Way
