                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What happened to Malice's words of wisdom last turn.  These Angels have sooooo
much to teach us, but shared nary a word.  But Angels are not really my concern.  I
have a bigger goal in life, and it wears a Ski Mask.  One day I will defeat it and
defend the honour of all Ducks With Swords.  But I will not be defending the throne
this turn, as the boss says I get to sit out in order to wait for an Adepts tourney.
Therefore, may the best duck, or angel be here again next turn.

Duck With Swords 
Ducks Unlimited
Duelmaster of Xochitlan

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of XOCHITHLAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BRUNEI caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested SOVEREIGN and was awarded 17 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HOWARD THE DUCK put down 
HORVANTH IRNDE, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
its absence and inability to defend the throne, DUCK WITH SWORDS has lost the title 
of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail GRAPHIC 
VIOLENCE, Duelmaster of XOCHITHLAN!  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in XOCHITHLAN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  DARQUE ANGELS is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of DUCKS UNLIMITED 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.  PEKING DUCK take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in XOCHITHLAN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Black Guard -- I think I need to hire you to protect my fortune. -- Scrooge McDuck

Wovern Yansy -- How dare you look down at me. -- Howard The Duck

Malice -- That's what you get for not writing a column. -- Duck With Swords

Bettina Chim -- Third time's a charm.   Of course, the first two times were charming
also. -- Peking Duck

Mastema -- I concede you have the advantage on the powerplay. -- Mighty Duck

Ulrik Venn -- Maybe next time I'll let you get one.  You know what they say:  fourth
time's a charm. -- M. Black

Selaane -- Hilarious.  I bet you were mad, guzzling maple syrup, overturning Zamboni
machines, etc. -- G. Vale

Mastema -- A nice warm welcome to Xochithlan; thanks! -- S. Staredge

And successful tussles against the very game collaborator and long-range archers.
Thanks, guys, for filling in! -- D. Cain and H. Witcher

Jorja -- It *was* difficult to let Sylah and Basti go.  But, well, it was harder
watching them struggle.  Sylah threw four crits in her DA match!  She really didn't
want to die. -- Lobo
P.S.  Who does?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ASLIN, manager of the Roughriders! -- Lobo and the Steel Wolves 2

     This was found in dm 31, but seems to belong here.

We salute the participants in the summer tourney.  Now if we can get a listing for
the autumn tourney, we might know where we stand.  Or possibly not, of course.  And
we'd rather sit, anyway. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Peking Duck -- Ah, of course.  Women are easy, too.  Just check the hands:  if she's
holding a weapon, she's probably angry.... -- Bettina Chim

Scrooge McDuck -- (puzzled look)  Why should anyone WANT to strive for a marginally
suited weapon?  Find something that works and start whacking. -- Bettina Chim
P.S.  Subtlety is over-rated.

Mighty Duck -- If you move up in the standings, you'll have to fight tougher guys
than me. -- Horvanth Irnde

Howard the Duck -- It was the smoking jacket that through me off.  I was afra-- ah,
CONCERNED, I was CONCERNED that it might catch all the way on fire. -- Wovern Yansy

Peking Duck -- You'd think that in fifteen minutes we could have exchanged more
skills, wouldn't you?  But I found your comments on that ancient classic of kung-fu,
the I Kan Do, fascinating.  I would never have looked at it from that angle without
your insight.  Who would have thought of such a use for a feather? -- Bettina Chim

Hidden Archer, ha!  It's hard to hide when you're 6'4" and the tallest bush doesn't
come to your knees.  They shouldn't have burned down the Shagornan Forest. -- Salome
Torene

Brunei -- You're a world blade, fine, go attack a world!  I'm mis-matched against
you, being a mere person. -- Ulrik Venn

Sovereign -- Huh, I guess that makes sense:  If YOU are an angel, you've got to be a
darque one. -- Horvanth Irnde

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
