                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I have very little to say.  This is my first win for the Duelmaster Crown in
four fights.  I have the "points" to graduate, but not the skills.  Please help me
get them.
     I would like to recognize our newest teammate, Shelley Ann.  May she make the
Duelmaster Top faster than I did.
            Mildred Leona, DM

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARDIVENT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 
record which SERPENT'S HOLD managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  SCALES caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested MOLLIE SCOT and was awarded 22 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, W. D. PURDY put down LONG 
BIGGAR, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has MILDRED LEONA in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARDIVENT.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in ARDIVENT 
these days is BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of FANDILS last week.  Busy avoiding BLUVALLEY WARRIORS?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARDIVENT.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a 
turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its 
prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Oh, my!  Condolences to Serpent's Hold and Errata.  Apparently it matters not whether
arena or tournament, as The Arena Of The Red Sands strikes down its own.  May the
great warriors Keelback and Antler fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky; and
also in The Dead Tournaments hence. -- Fandil The Wise

A salute to Lord Protector Anchorman.  Well done!  That is one way to beat The Red
Sands Arena! -- WOF

Katerina -- It was simply my day.  Let's blow this place and go shopping over at the
big mall some day. -- Mildred

Lila Deane -- Three rounds in a row?  We are getting to be a regular couple! -- Earl

Mollie -- Tsk, tsk.  A candle is best known for its light, not its heat.  Kneel with
me in prayer; it will help your dueling, and, who knows but it will help get you
through The Red Sands. -- Monsignor Mark

Marci -- I enjoyed every minute of our fight.  Every single minute.  (wink) -- W. D.
Purdy

Please welcome my newest gladiator, Shelley Ann, who should debute this round. -- WOF

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

Monsignor Mark -- Well, listen.  It's MY number, so give it BACK. -- Mollie Scot

We congratulate Anchorman, who hasn't been fighting here recently and now is leaving.
So be it. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

And we salute the tourney particpants. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors again

Mildred Leona -- Don't listen to the stewards, *I* believe you won.  Ouch. --
Katerina Collin

Earl -- One skill apiece, and you trampled my feet mercilessly.  That's no way to run
a railroad. -- Lila Deane

Monsignor Mark -- Huh, it isn't like there's anyone ELSE for us to fight, I guess.
But I should get to win sometimes. -- Mollie Scot

W. D. Purdy -- Did anyone get the number of the freight wagon that hit me? -- Marci
Foote

Marci -- I think the Ruthless Jaywalker knows it, and I'm going to beat it out of
him, even if the arenamistress tries to stop me. -- Long Biggar

13 July 11
                                   Announcing!

          The No-Tourney ADM arena will be opening for business on the
          first of August of this year!
     It will be ADM Arena #107, making use of that idle installation down at Lirin
Kiv.  If the managers involved in this arena wish to rename it, suggestions will be
entertained through the months of August and September.
