                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I think the Cook must have Messed Up rather badly on that one.  Not that I'm
complaining!  So the hashbrowns were carbonized, I've been told that a little carbon
in the diet cleans toxins out of the system and makes the hair shiny.  Works for me.

                                   Long Biggar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in ARDIVENT, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--THE 27 CLUB.  THE 
27 CLUB posted a nice gain, to come in 1st.  Everybody loves a winner...  FANDILS had 
cause to celebrate, after SHELLEY ANN got 14 points by beating THE COOK MESSED UP.  
NOVA certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to KURT COBAIN and 
losing 13 points in the process!  In ARDIVENT, nothing is permanent (except Death), 
and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, WHAT WATER?.  Word has it one team in 
ARDIVENT is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet 
it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in ARDIVENT avoid AZURE CLOUDS.  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of BASH BROS. WAITRESS, so did that sorry team shy from AZURE 
CLOUDS Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and THE COOK MESSED UP is it right 
now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't BASH BROS. WAITRESS proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in ARDIVENT would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

My, my.  The Cook Messed Up.  Really messed up.  How interesting.  All hail the new
Duelmaster, Long Biggar. -- Fandil The Wise and crew

Azure Clouds -- There you go with those big point gains again.  What has that
Slugbait fed you? -- Fandil The Wise

If I have not already said "Howdy and Welcome" to Superheroes and Exotic Blades, I
meant to.  Old age limits me, you know? -- WOF (Wise Old Fandil)

Well, a 2-0 is nice, especially following an 0-6.  Slugbait has brought me bad luck.
(wink) -- WOF

Jimi Hendrix -- If you're gonna dance, you have to be prepared to dance long.
Perhaps you should keep to singing/playing/wailing? -- Irvin

Arlene Ross -- Finally!  Finally a win.  Finally someone who makes me feel positive
about myself! -- Uncle Junior

Hah!  Gotcha, Slugbait!  You did not beat me once! -- Fandil The Wise

Assur The Converted Delarquan -- What was that you said about your warrior, The Cook
Messed Up? "...Otherwise, don't be surprised if she sits on the throne for most of
her time left here on the red sands..."  Ahem.  Let me read that again.  I guess it
simply took someone long and bigger to straighten the cook out? -- WOF
P.S.  I do admire you for accepting the customs, Sir.

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

Fandil -- Apparently, I spoke way too soon.  Excuse me as I try to get my foot out of
my mouth over the next few turns. -- Assur

Black Bile -- I think we're seeing a trend.  Long Biggar, low tipper and warrior of
rudeness. -- The Cook Messed Up

Shelley Ann -- A good trade school is not a bad idea at all.  Gives you a fallback
position, a day job you can turn to at need.  Maybe I should look around, too. --
Marci Foote, who may graduate but will never fight on the Isle

Swirvin' Irvin -- Ah, I didn't realize you were THE gray-and-gold tabby.  That makes
a difference.  Could I interest you in a can of tuna fish? -- Arlene Ross

Uncle Junior -- You're too modest. -- Arlene Ross

A credit line?  Yes, that would be worth having! -- Jorja

Black Bile -- Nonono!  You have the wrong end of the issue.  A polite warrior spares
his opponent the need for exertion by winning quickly. -- Long Biggar

What Water? -- Good enough. -- Joubert Klee

Violent Orange -- Well, okay.  With fourteen wins, you could graduate at any moment,
and that is a goal to strive for.  So good work. -- Marci Foote

Black Bile -- Huh, you seem to have saved up a lot of parrying and riposting to use
on me!  Well, parrying, at least.  I was too tired to tell if there was any
riposting. -- Corbin Ross

No Name -- Having a name gave me the edge. -- Joubert Klee

Uncle Junior -- Bad boy!  Bad!  Didn't your momma teach you not to hit women? --
Arlene Ross
