                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am going to keep this succinct.  I am praying hard.  One more win up here at
5pps and I am HOME.  Five pps, 5pps, 5pps....

          Monsignor Mark

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARDIVENT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, FANDILS, since BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see SHELLEY ANN win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, SHELLEY ANN beat LILA DEANE and LILA DEANE lost 14 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ARDIVENT may be getting bland, as 
MONSIGNOR MARK 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, ARDIVENT?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks 
like FANDILS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you 
ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARDIVENT to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide

Golly, golly, Fratsfan Noble!  I didn't want to kill you-- just beat you.  Gee!  I am
so, so sorry.  My dad will be really, really mad. -- Clara Rose

Marci Foote -- Sometimes being fast is a good thing.  (wink) -- Monsignor Mark
(praying, praying, praying...)

Lila Deane -- You sure showed me, gal.  I guess I was just too worn out from all that
holiday shopping.  Whew! -- Shelley Ann

Corbin Ross -- I am not going to say anything.  I am just going to kinda keep
smiling. -- Irvin (swirvin' with the best of 'em)

Joubert -- Y'all done be makin' this hard, ya know? -- Snuffy

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

Snuffy -- I tried not to be too hard on you, what with you being such a little guy,
but dueling is a dangerous business.  No two ways about it.  I'm sure you'll get, ah,
re-oriented in good time. -- Joubert Klee

Monsignor Mark -- Really, it seems so unfair to remove yourself from the population
of "available males."  Still if you gotta, well... there it is. -- Marci Foote

Shelley Ann -- Don't go getting above yourself, girl. -- Lila Deane

Damned hairy little runt. -- Long Biggar 

Irvin -- And there you see the difference between a dog and a cat.  You feed a dog,
and he's your friend for life regardless.  Feed a cat, and if the next meal doesn't
arrive promptly, he'll turn and rip your hand open. -- Corbin Ross

                              "DARK ARENA" -- The Novel

    For centuries, the Shagornan Elves have been forced to live underground. 
    Human invaders, the Delarquans, burned their forests, sparking a war of elven 
    annihilation. The elders told tales that when the Delarquans marched to war 
    against the elves, the land itself bled as they passed. Since the war, the 
    elves have dwindled with every passing year, while the humans multiply like 
    rodents across the land of Alastari. 

    Now, the Delarquans have disappeared. Some say they departed, others indicate 
    it.s a ruse, but there have been whispered rumors of another greater threat 
    looming in the region. Khyron of the Shagornan Elves has been tasked to 
    determine the cause, realizing that failure is probable and at the end of the 
    road death could be the only reward. 

    Khyron has known only the safety of the caves, but now he must journey to the 
    world above...the World with No Ceiling.

Throughout the years, many fine writers have played Duelmasters/Duel II and have 
contributed greatly to the history and background of the world of Alastari.  One very 
intense period, during the early '90's, was during the Rocanis War, when authors from 
both the Delarquan and Free Blades arenas collaborated on writing the history of the 
invasion of the arena-city of Rocanis.  Mark Manley (aka Grimwood) is a long-time 
manager in Rocanis, and was one of the writers who contributed so much to this 
history.  Over the subsequent years, he has worked to bring his novelization to life 
and make the story of the War and the preceding events which led to it available to 
the greater public.  Many Rocanis legends appear in the book: Itoz Trollbane, 
Sandstorm, and others.  The novel is a treat to read--even more so if you are familiar 
with the game!
