                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, it appears I've been neglecting my duty as Duelmaster since I haven't been
writing a column.  But when you fight mostly NPCs, it's kind of hard to get
motivated, but that's no excuse (but it will be short).
     First of all, welcome back to Of Wolf and Man, and also to Errata, I hope you're
here to stay, we could use you.  Hopefully, Master Darque will be back soon, though
I'm not sure why he's worried about us.  We would prefer to stay away from Payne, and
we also know about that little flower you have waiting in the wings so I think that
makes us even.

Good luck to all on the sands,
Courtney

                                      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 SHIVOR win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SHIVOR beat FRIGGA 
and FRIGGA lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, STORMCROWE may be getting bland, as CALLOUS COURTNEY 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, STORMCROWE?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of STORMCROWE.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Line -- Wasn't expecting that one, I appreciate the skills, thanks. -- Mini Driver

Elishar -- It could have been worse, it might have been lower. ;) -- Mini Driver

White Bear -- Just four minutes?  You made me want more. -- Frigga

Aurora Marie -- Ouch! -- Thor

Standby -- I thought the referee meant get ready.  I didn't think he was introducing
you. -- Aegir

Rhino -- I didn't think I was ever going to cut through that armor. -- Elishar

121 -- I see, you make me do all the work, and you get the prize. -- Njord

White Bear -- Yes, Neutral Ground and I'll show you the skills put to good use that
aren't arena skills. *wink* -- Frigga

Thor -- God of Thunder, you better start winning or I hope you can see in the Dark--
as in Arena. -- Sir BlackGuard

Cheese louise!  It seems like everyone else fights standbys before our fights are
ever called, and only our two juniors get standbys then.  The rest of us have to

fight the tough guys.  Talk about life being unfair! -- Northern Lights
P.S.  Okay, we didn't do so badly.  In fact, we did fairly well.  Still.  Even if
life wasn't unfair TODAY, it will be again, any minute now.

Frigga -- You're such a toothsome little morsel, I couldn't resist prolonging the
encounter, even though it cost me the win. -- White Bear

Shivor -- And well you should!  The temperature is dropping tonight, and I'm dropping
on you right along with it. -- Avalanche

Thor -- I keep thinking you should be a basher armed with a warhammer.  Probably just
as well you aren't. -- Aurora Marie

A Convicted Thief and a Mordant Deserter.  What nonsense.  But the wins are wins,
even so. -- Glitrina and Iapere
