                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So much for "no softer feelings," Courtney.  Unaided, they are not enough for
victory.  I'm not really keen on "softer feelings," or in my case "warmer feelings,"
either.  But you can probably move back into the title as I graduate.  I salute a
valliant effort.

                                    Lady Winter

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, STORMCROWE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see AURORA MARIE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AURORA MARIE 
beat FORSETI and FORSETI lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as CALLOUS COURTNEY takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, STORMCROWE?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
NORTHERN LIGHTS, 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 it looks like STREET WALKERS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for STORMCROWE's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the STORMCROWE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Lady Winter -- I figured my luck was running out, well fought and Congrats in your
invite. -- Callous Courtney

Sir Blackguard -- Welcome to the arena! -- Roadkill

Frigga -- I think I have to work on my follow through. -- Mini Driver

Grateful Dead -- Well...I'm not dead so I guess I am grateful. -- Mr. Beefy

I assassinated a convicted assassin...I think I have mixed feelings about this. --
Josie Wales

White Bear -- Sometimes, the only time I wish I was taller is when picking apples. --
Frigga

Aurora Marie -- I was looking but must have missed the light show. -- Aegir

Mini Driver -- Mini, you're not, but Driver, most would say maybe. -- Frigga

White Bear -- I almost got that rug off your corpse for Sir BlackGuard. -- Elishar

Sir BlackGuard -- The Unknown Spymaster must be blind as well as unknown.  We, as a
team, had a 5-0-0 turn last round, and NO acknowledgment except for Frigga, making
Mini Driver lose 5 points.  Time to get known. -- God or Goddess stable

Line -- Only an error if you cross it. -- Gelidnia Hale

Somehow, I feel certain that the "Osksi Noble" was a fake, neither Osksian nor noble.
Oh, well. -- Stormwind

Elishar -- Who would make a god or goddess of a golem? -- White Bear

Aegir -- You can't tell whether you're a god or goddess?  That's really confused. --
Aurora Marie

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!
