                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I finally made it to the top.  All that hard work and penance paid off.  I thank
the gods for all my blessings.
     I suspect I shall be around a while as this makes only my 7th political point--
despite my experienced record.  I hope to make that stay on top, as that will
minimize my time in Ardivent.  Then I shall return to the monastery.
     I shall dedicate this specific column to the Fandil Team and their "real life"
identities.  All are related to The Consortium in a fashion as such:
Monsignor Mark (me) -- younger brother Mark
Shelley Ann -- younger sister Shelley Ann
Clara Rose -- second grandchild Clara Rose
Irvin -- household, now inside only, stray cat Irvin
Snuffy -- nickname of his father
     Enough for now.  Enjoy the holidays with loved ones.
             Monsignor Mark

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARDIVENT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  LONG BIGGAR caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KHALHUMS DWARF and was awarded 
17 points in recognition.  Although MARCI FOOTE made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious MONSIGNOR MARK.  Heed this!  A seer has 
warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just 
remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARDIVENT.  ARDIVENT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is FANDILS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of FANDILS are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  JOUBERT KLEE take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in ARDIVENT.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARDIVENT as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

P.S.  Thank you for the concern.  I really enjoyed our last fight.  And I promise my

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

     The crowd was surprisingly orderly, but it was still a crowd, and the Commission 
clerk, Algernon, looked at it uneasily.  Whenever this many people came together to 
petition for something, it meant trouble.  For him, anyway.  Records to be altered.  
Altering records was Bad.  It made Extra Work.
     His assistant clerk leaned close and whispered, "If it weren't for gladiators, we 
wouldn't have jobs.  Smile at them and ask what they want."
     Algernon closed his eyes briefly.  Looking at this crowd made him dizzy.  They 
were all wearing black and white stripes.  Like a herd of zebras, except that zebras 
didn't carry swords.  Then he took a deep breath and managed a smile.  "What... ah, 
what can I do for you?"
     "We want new names," the first gladiator said.  There was a number on the front 
of his shirt:  0381.  He thumped the number with his thumb.  "This here isn't a 
     "We want REAL names!"  That voice came from farther back in the crowd.
     "Yeah!  We've paid our dues," another shouted, "and we've EARNED real names!"
     One from the very back yelled, "I want to be called Tom."
     All the others turned to look at him.
     Algernon couldn't see him, but apparently those looks were accusing.  Well, he 
could understand that, "Tom" was such a... common name.
     "My mom called me Tom," the voice in the back protested.  "It's a good name."
     "It isn't the name you put on the petition," 0381 said.  "We talked about this.  
We got our manager's agreement.  You get the name on the petition."
     Algernon didn't really want to keep staring at all these stripes while they 
argued.  He picked up the petition.  "These names are the ones you want?"
     0381 turned back.  "Yes."
     "It's a lot of trouble, and when other people see that YOU are getting name 
changes, THEY are going to want them--"  Seeing the gladiators beginning to frown... 
and finger their weapons, he went on quickly, "So I figure we might as well make it a 
complete deal.  A Name-Change-O-Rama.  Everyone who wants a name change can petition 
for it.  Get it all over with at once."  He glanced at the petition, shuddered 
slightly, and passed it to his clerk.  "We'll announce it, proclaim it, even, and you 
will get the names on this petition.  And others will get the names THEY think they 
should have had, too."  He paused.  "And I think I'll get a new name, I'm tired of 
being an Algernon...."
