                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This must be my year for startling events.  I did NOT expect to defeat Armored
Echo.

                                   Elifas Kent

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in RODEKI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  The INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP guild has had a 3-0-1 
turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of 
thing can lead.  And let's see, TRUGOY THE DOVE fought IGRINA SOCKINETTE and gained 
21 points and contributed to INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP's 3-0-1.  ISENGALEN has lost to 
GAVEN ADLER, falling 13 points, while helping make DELVERS a 0-5-0 turn.  And not 
without some honor, SEAFOOD RISOTTO now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
RODEKI.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  FLAGG'S FIVE has cause to stand tall, as they were RODEKI's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who 
avoided FLAGG'S FIVE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was VENETIAN CINQUE.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that ISENGALEN from DELVERS was 
RODEKI's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Banners at half mast, warriors, DELVERS has lost IGRINA SOCKINETTE, and you 
might say all of RODEKI has felt the loss, except maybe INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP.  Is it 
really true that RODEKI has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought 
I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in RODEKI and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Our congratulations to Common Sense (an alien concept) and Armored Echo (really like
that name). -- Harby and the Delvers

Talib Kweli -- Eat cold steel, buster brown! -- Isengalen
P.S.  Because at this season, all the steel is cold.

Hippo Huntress -- Okay, so you have to practice.  I understand that.  But couldn't
you teach me something other than "nine ways to cook a hippo"? -- Igrina Sockinette

I never did care for the assassins.  At least, not for the convicted ones.  They're
so stupid!  The ones that don't get convicted... might be another story, hmm? --
Karligrena
