                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I would like to think I have a charmed life; after all, I am the Duelmaster, and
I earned it.  But my early life was not easy and certainly not charmed.  I was killed
in this very same Ardivent Red Sands arena many moons ago.  Somehow Fandil The Wise
found a fight-the-dead-for-rebirth tournament and I 8-3-2'd myself back to the
living.  (Thank you, Mr. Famdil!)  I guess I have been charmed since I died.  Does
that really sound right?
     Anyway, this DM Title may be my one and only.  I will be abdicating this throne
--Robert Johnson, you lucky dog!--as I am fighting as a maxed Champion, a very, very
hard class for a basher, in the upcoming Spring Mailer.  It would have been more fun
fighting you, Robert, even though you have beaten me before, but the tournament
calls.
     Good luck to everyone.  Wish me well in the tournement--at least as far as
staying alive.
     Hoping to see y'all in late April, Ta ta,
     Sadie, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  FANDILS?  Who?  THE 27 CLUB is the top team these days, buddies!  THE 
27 CLUB had cause to celebrate, after PIGPEN got 14 points by beating ROCKSOCK JONES. 
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, PIGPEN was winsome, after beating ROCKSOCK 
JONES and seeing him lose 13 points.  A certain someone saw SADIE at The Victory 
Tavern with the shakes, and now she fails to show up to defend hers throne.  What a 
pathetic slob!  In ARDIVENT, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, ROBERT JOHNSON.  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 BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of FANDILS, so did that sorry team shy from BLUVALLEY WARRIORS  
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Sadie -- Dear, I am so proud of you.  Dead, a dead TV, and now Duelmaster.  Salute.
-- Fandil The Wise

Robert Johnson -- Today is not that day for you.  You will have to just wait, I
guess.  I enjoyed the tussle and leaving on a high note. -- Snuffy (interpreted by
The Fandils Publicist--for the very LAST time)

Rocksock -- It was me doing the roskin' and sockin'.  Where were you? -- Fleetwood

Tria Skathach -- It was my day to be lucky.  Perhaps yours will come soon. -- Sadie

Polite Beggar and Shiftyeyed Volunteer -- Thanks for being our practice tackling
blocks.  The wins were nice, too. -- Casper John and Jerome

All -- I only have three available gladiators this round.  Snuffy's replacement has
not yet arrived (probably traveling snowy-snail-mail-express) and Sadie has maxed for
The Spring Mailer (Apr 12) and refuses to suit up.  The life of a manager is just not
what it used to be. -- Fandil The Wise

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands Await us all. -- WOF

An oh-fer turn, and more snow predicted!  We can't stand it.  We're going to move to
Tahiti. -- Tria Skathach and teammates
P.S.  We'll even take the Joneses with us, and that's a concession of major
proportions.  We'll just have to hope for a lot of buxom island beauties to keep them
out of trouble.
