                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is DOGGY TIME yet again!  Unfortunately this will be my last column I'll be
sharing with you as both Tyefoon Turmoil and I have gotten that fateful call to the
Isle.  I wonder if this was in fact the first time in Kati-Tei history that two Parry
Strikes got the call on the exact same turn... quite a feat and I'm proud to be a
part of it.
     Tyefoon and I have agreed to meet up one final time to settle both of our claims
to best PS in Kati-Tei.  We're both going to run our favorites and see which one of
us remains standing at the end.  Although I have to admit... I have the advantage
because I stand on four feet instead of two.
     Just in case you're wondering what I look like under all that fur of mine...
here's a look:
11-13-11-17-10-5-17
Master Parry/Init, AdEx Attack/Dec
Low/Low QS
     If I had that rollup today, I'd likely make him an AB or PR... but hey, 15 years
ago it looked good!  I never ran him with the QS from what I can remember, but we
will see how it looks come next turn!!!

Until another doggy takes the throne.... (Skitzoid, this pup\'s for you)
     Same doggy time,
          Same doggy place,
               Same doggy channel,
                    Your Duelmaster,
                         Four Pawz

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KATI-TEI games.  MOHNSOON MAYHEM caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BALIN CHANE and was 
awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SYKLONE 
SEQUEL put down MARLIN REEVE, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the 
process.  As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this 
week was none other than Duelmaster FOUR PAWZ himself.  Who here was not present for 
the title fight this week as TYEFOON TURMOIL boldly challenged FOUR PAWZ in order to 
strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Not for nothing has FOUR PAWZ in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KATI-TEI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  KATI-TEI, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is THE PLAGUE, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of THE STORM FRONT are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in KATI-TEI 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 next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Tyefoon Turmoil -- Huuzzaah!!!  Does that make us 2-2 against one another?  Looking
forward to our rematch so we can both go out in style.  Parry Strike style! -- Four
Pawz

El Nino -- The storm has passed!  Looks like you can teach an old dawg new tricks! --
Lucky Dawg

Balin Chane -- You, my friend, are one very unlucky customer. -- Skitzoid Snoopy

Requiem -- I think I saw a tear in Marma Duke's eyes after that fight. -- Old Yeller

Syklone Sequel -- Always with the sequels!  I like things to be *new* sometimes. --
Grimm Lurcher
P.S.  Not that I mind the kind of "sequels" that make for a winning record.  Jorja
considers that strange, but I figure it's my natural superiority.

Wrolling Thunder -- We've been having a lot of that around here. -- Kohoutek

Skitzoid Snoopy -- You're mad, you know.  Totally bonkers. -- Balin Chane

Red Tentacle -- Rather an anemic red.  You probably need to go out and suck the blood
from some farmers, as the samples found on the waterfront really aren't the best
donors for a healthy red. -- Marlin Reeve

Doomed -- Oh, yeah, I can relate to that!  I was named for a maple seed, and talk
about unappreciated, and under constant hostile attack!  Even the kids around here
just throw us down on the sidewalks and stamp on us because they "like to hear them
pop."  Philistines. -- Samara

Skitzoid Snoopy -- It's probably some kind of curse.  Or else the handicapper is
trying to pay off the Userous Merchant by betting on you. -- Balin Chane

Our congratulations to Four Pawz and Tyefoon Turmoile.  A well-deserved graduation
for both of you. -- Jorja and the Wanderers

Four Pawz -- You know you got lucky there!  But at least we still both got the call.
How about one more match before we leave and give our grand arena a good send off!
It will be Clash of the Parry Strikes! -- Tyefoon Turmoil

Grimm Lurcher -- I wish you were a little happier!  Then maybe you wouldn't hit so
hard.  Sheeeesh!!! -- Syklone Sequel

Ubba-Sathla -- I like fighting you!  You're one of the few people I can look in the
eye!  And the win wasn't bad, either. -- Mohnsoon Mayhem

Kohoutek -- That's how I wroll!!! -- Wrolling Thunder

Lucky Dawg -- Now how did that happen?!  I guess you really are lucky! -- El Nino
