                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I have little to say as I prepare for my annual retreat.  I must get down on my
knees and thank the Greater Being that oversees my life.  I will say prayers for
Yvonne also, for losing to a Jaywalker is a difficult and stressful situation.
     Meanwhile, challenge me as Betty just did.  Betty, that was a great job and you
almost did it.  Kudos.
                 Brother Jerome, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to FANDILS, as they are pushed 
from the coveted top team spot by the SERPENT'S HOLD stable.  Coming up with a solid 
4-1-1 outing, SERPENT'S HOLD has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the 
rankings was DEATHTONGUE who went from last turn's 1265-938-59, to this week's record 
of 1269-939-60.  Hey everybody, watch out for OLIVER, who flew up 26 points in the 
rankings after mashing BINGO LITTLE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was BINGO LITTLE, who dropped 40 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with OLIVER.  Drawing on all of hers experience 
as a 20-18-0 warrior, BETTY went for the Duelmastership against BROTHER JEROME this 
week.  In front of all the crowds, BETTY took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I 
give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid FANDILS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does ARDIVENT really have that many 
liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch SERPENT'S HOLD's act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from FANDILS.  Well dang howdy, but 
if challenges were votes, TONGAN BURKE would be president.  Although it may be a 
contest he doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, EARL 
went after ROSEBUD, who was higher by 20 points.  Well, when the dust settled, EARL 
lost to ROSEBUD.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  SNORKY defied all odds and slew HIGH ELF in 
the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as HIGH ELF's meat is 
notoriously tough.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, TONGAN BURKE was 
mashed by KEELBACK, who let TONGAN BURKE know that killing members of SERPENT'S HOLD 
is a no-no.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter 
problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARDIVENT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Congratulations to Lord Protector Snorky.  Way to go, Technogeek. -- Fandil The Wise

Khisanth -- It was good to see you again in Orlando, and to sit and strategize at The
Face.  We had a hoppin' table.  Nice Bloodgames! -- WOF and All The Consortium

Ruthless Jaywalker?  I lost?  I am beginning to think I am not a warrior after all.
-- Yvonne (sniffling and tearing)

Betty -- Pray for endurance.  (wink) -- Brother Jerome

Oliver -- It was mighty close, but I will take the lucky win.  It is always a feat to
overcome a Deathtonguer. -- Earl

Happy Peasant -- I treated you gently so I hope you are still happy. -- Mildred Leona

     He's totally stoned and has no idea what goes on in the arena. -- Arenamistress
     Fandette

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands of Ardivent await. -- WOF

Snorky -- Oh, I say!  Binged you right on the bean with that bun, what? -- Bingo
Little

Coral -- Ah, pretty but dangerous.  I'm lucky to be alive, aren't I? -- Katerina
Collin

A Trustworthy Scribe?  As if!  They're sneaky, every one. -- Mollie Scot
P.S.  And terminally unreliable.

The Friendly Constable is (recoiling) THAT kind of guy.  I am NOT. -- Tongan Burke

Yvonne -- Going shopping is good, but an occasional trip to the cleaners saves money
to make the shopping more fun.  Who wants to find the most darling outfits and then
throw them away after wearing them once? -- Katerina Collin

Our congratulations to Snorky. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors
