                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, well, well!  What is a girl to do after leaving this isle for another?  I
will tell you what I'm going to do!  I am going to retire!  No more of this gladiator
stuff for me.  I have my entire life ahead of me.  Being now immortal, I have many
lives ahead of me.  I am going to start the first one as a farmer, or perhaps a
farmer's wife.  Not really sure on all the details yet.
     For the interested, I began life 9-17-20-3-19-8-8.  I finished it 12-18-20-5-21-
9-11.  Interestingly, I have burned more skills than I have learned (17:24) and you
will notice there is only 1 CON train in my 45 fight life because 3 attempts failed,
even with a 21 WILL and only 1 previous train.  Needless to say, Darque thought it
best to just move on.  Plus, he said I could already soak up damage like a sponge
without training more vigorously in that area.  The Commission says that I like the
LG, VL/LO rhythm, and the Response tactic.  I apparently like to learn Attack, but in
reality, I don't like to learn anything (as my skill learns testify).
     Once again, enjoy yourselves in Stormcrowe.  Darque says that he did not begin
his managerial career in Stormcrowe, but this place has become home.  My challenges
go to the top Challenger Champs.  I figured if I was going to relinquish my seat, I
was going to make the men work for it.

Your Duelmistress,

Lady Protector Roselyn

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for STORMCROWE.  MVP award for PULLED ORC?  
SHEWISH BUFFET's proud of him after beating THE WINTER QUEEN and getting 29 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  LAPUR BISQUE got smashed by BENEZIA, and lost 21 
points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause she's Number One!  A TALENT 
SCOUT knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  ROSELYN stopped A TALENT SCOUT dead in his tracks!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said STORMCROWE's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Shadow's 
Fountain?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of DARQUE FORCES must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are AVID FANS?  DARQUE FORCES, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can NORTHERN LIGHTS' AURORA MARIE be more 
popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  STORMCROWE is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Roselyn -- Had you not been training skills, you could have stuck around a little
longer. -- A Talent Scout

Ermine -- How quickly do you think I can clean up your mess. -- The Janitor

Pulled Orc -- I'm more used to dealing with Pulled Muscles. -- An Arena Doctor

Belldandy -- I hope you helped me find a strat I can actually win with. -- The

P.S.  Or maybe... lightly crushed red raspberries, and ice cream.

Our congratulations to Roselyn. -- Jorja and the Northern Lights

Benezia -- You're a devastating woman, no doubt about that. -- Seal Dancer
P.S.  But you don't teach well.  You should work on that.

The Janitor -- You swept me away.  I didn't care for that, but it could have been
worse. -- Ermine

Caer Salad -- Didn't like my anchoves, eh? -- Aurora Marie
P.S.  Truth to tell, I didn't like 'em, either.

The Userous Merchant?  Bah. -- The Winter Queen

     Roselyn and Master Darque -- Thank you for the plain text version.  I wasn't
     eager to tackle the "block of code" version. -- the Editor
