                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

In keeping with tradition, here is Omaha:
     12-4-6-17-15-9-21   9-22-36-21-18-15
She uses an EP or SC, it don't matter which.  It's been a while since she threw a
normal.  Unlike Stud, she ain't hanging around.  She is going straight to Darkholm,
where Todd, Jason, and I are having a little party this switch.  You are all invited
to come play.

                                          -- Coach

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RODEKI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
RODEKI may be getting bland, as OMAHA stays top dog in the city.  The Welcome Wench, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
RODEKI's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
DELVERS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE SOVEREIGN.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, JURGENHALEN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have SALSANE in a challenge, going down 15 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought SALSANE showed great skill and promise 
when she was defeated by ZAK PAIN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RODEKI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  JURGENHALEN, a glorious 14-51-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad DELVERS.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it 
only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this 
one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of RODEKI.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

One Eyed Jack -- I resemble that remark!  I didn't really expect to survive to
graduation. -- Jurgenhalen

Three-two for us, and one of them was NOT over a standby!  Are we great or what?  Ah,
don't answer that.... -- Jurgenhalen, for the Delvers

Razz -- The devastation vanished when I saw my graduation notice.  Life is good, and
it seems like life is going to continue for me, once a doubtful prospect. --
Jurgenhalen

Blue Smoke -- Very back-and-forth. -- Silver Lady

Deep Blu -- I wouldn't eat there. -- Joseph George

And two standbys.  Good cess. -- Rocksnail and Anvil

Scorpio -- That isn't so unusual for a total fight count in one of the older arenas.
When you see a manager with fewer fights in some given arena, it MIGHT simply mean
that he has junked an old team (or more than one!), and started a new one.  And yes,
I've been playing for a long time. -- Harby, Delvers
P.S.  And that only equals sixteen years of play.  Practically nothing.

Jurgy -- Congratulations.  You will be missed.  Hope you run in Darkholm. -- Coach

Stud -- You pud, you lost to an extra.  Oh, the shame. -- the rest of Dealer's Choice

Jurgy -- Hey, cool.  Thanks. -- Razz

Delvers -- Oops!  I forgot to divide 34 by 2.  That's still 17 yrs!  Impressive.  I
would still think you'd like to begin a new team, but that's just me. -- Scorpio
