                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, dang.  You know I didn't MEAN to kill Bub, right?  But I sure don't mind
getting to be Duelmaster.  What does that make you and me, Hard Knocks?  Two for me,
the first one for you?  Weird, but good.

                                     Rockhog

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RODEKI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BRAID win a fight and gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MORDANT DESERTER 
beat RODEKILL and RODEKILL lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as ROCKHOG JR stays top dog in the 
city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to 
know what's new, don't you, RODEKI?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, GASTAIGNE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have JELLO KNUCKLES in a challenge, going down 
12 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought JELLO KNUCKLES showed great skill 
and promise when he beat GASTAIGNE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Ya gotta go sometime, and FLIMSY KNICKERS' 
time was this time.  Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had she lived... (what?  me pity?).  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in RODEKI to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Rockhog -- There aren't many wells to dip into.  And you used to bucket up when we
fought.  Sadly, you appear to hold water better now.  Congrats on your wins, the
throne, and your probable graduation this turn.  May Faroman do the same and leave
the seat open for me to get out of here. -- Hard Knocks

I Can't Brush You -- I'd apologize for the relentless downchallenges, but (1) I mean
'em when I issue 'em, and (2) there aren't many options around here.  I'd rather
control who my warriors fight than let them get murdered by Venemous Concubine and
Khalhums Dwarf.  Once you get killed by an NPC, it changes your mindset.  Feel free
to avoid us. -- Suave

     I've noticed that.

Faceless Factors -- Nice entry.  Good luck consistently finding persistent deserters
to fight. -- Color Me Suave

And the Rodeki Dwarf to see me off.  I think I might go to Khalhums, I like
mountainous places. -- Eacham

Flimsy Knickers -- That's almost embarrassing.  Some things should be kept private.
-- Faroman

Toothbrush -- Cheap plastic. -- Damon Shovell

Tantrum Yoga -- Great name!  But you need to practice a little more. -- Gastaigne

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
