                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hallelujah!  I finally acquired my 14th win and the coveted Lord Protectorship.
And I won my 5th Duelmistress Title to boot.  What a day!  I am so proud.  And I am
even more happy to be able to retire.  This is, indeed, my farewell column to all.
     It is only fitting that my final words be about my journey.  Therefore:
I was born 11-13-10-17-15-7-11 LU hosed attack, blessed parry.
I started with normal endu and good damage doing.
I worked out hard, training to 11-15-10-17-16-7-11, earning good endu and takes lots.
My skill learn rate is a blessed 2.48.
I earned 5 DM crowns. (5-5-0 in DM fights)
I trained to adexes in Init, Attack, and defense, earning those three skills equally.
With weapons I was:
7-64-6 LO
0-39-0 others
I never could find that one good, winning fighting rythym.
I am 14-13-1 with no tournaments.
     Good luck to all you Ardiventians.  May the force be with you.
              Shelley Ann, DMV

                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  FANDILS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  
Hey everybody, watch out for JOUBERT KLEE, who flew up 29 points in the rankings 
after mashing BLACK BILE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like 
a basher in the top ten was BLACK BILE, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with JOUBERT KLEE.  Try as hard as the FANDILS stable might, 
they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) SHELLEY ANN before this 
week's fights.  It's a proud day for the FANDILS stable, as their warrior, UNCLE 
JUNIOR, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold 
to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARDIVENT arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad AZURE CLOUDS?  Big bad AZURE CLOUDS.  Big 
bad AZURE CLOUDS.  ARDIVENT's afraid of the big bad AZURE CLOUDS.  Tra la la la la!  
Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch FANDILS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats 
seem to be fairly deft at running from AZURE CLOUDS.  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, JIMI HENDRIX would be president.  Although it may be a contest 
he doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Anti-Leap Year -- Wow!  I did it!  And against a style-nemesis.  Wowsers! -- Shelley
Ann, Lord Protector Duelmistress

Kurt Cobain -- What a jam!  Somehow I came out best.  What a surprise.

Three times in a row the collective warriors of Ardivent have beaten the environment
of The Red Sands.  Kudos to all.  Zero deaths makes for a glorious Andorian moment.
-- Fandil The Wise

Assur -- Wayne Gretsky, I think I have heard of him.  Yes, Indeed.  I rather like
Arnold Palmer version... 99% of the short putts do not go in. -- Shelley Ann (A Lord
Protector who bided her time, then sank the putt.)

Corbin Ross -- Hain't none 'o that snuff fer me.  Nossir!  Nary smokin'.  Lotsa
'shine, tho.  Oh, yeah. -- Snuffy

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Merry Christmas to you and yours. -- Fandil The Wise

Our congratulations to Shelley Ann. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Swirvin Irvin -- If you don't know what ice is, then you have the good sense to stay
INSIDE when the temperature is headed for single digits.  I could wish some OTHER
cats had that kind of sense. -- Arlene Ross

Flirting at Table -- Wow!  I like it! -- Fingers Brooke

What Water? -- Actually, I was hoping for beer.  You got any beer? -- Corbin Ross

An Ambitious Guard?  Pfui. -- Arlene Ross

Jimi Hendrix -- I did NOT want you to "light my fire" in such a literal sense. --
Joubert Klee

Jim -- Luck is all it was, and don't you forget it! -- Tria Skathach

Shelley Ann -- Congrats, I guess, but did you really have to take the throne to do
it?  Other people actually NEED those PPs to graduate.  You just needed a win! --
Assur

Corbin Ross -- Not sure what the score is between us.  But and down the rankings I
continue to go! -- What Water?
