                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I am Duelmaster, and I really do not deserve it.  Whoa, now!  I didn't say
I would turn it down.  I just did not earn it in the true warrior fashion.  I fought
the graduating Duelmaster, Robert Johnson, but, as he proved before, he is the better
warrior.  I salute him.  The Commission then decreed that by virtue of my highest
recognition points, I would be awarded Duelmaster.  I suspect many of the other top
warriors were in hiding, unwilling to accept the Title because they did not want to
come anywhere near a DM Column.  Their loss, I say.
     As I write, The Mailer has concluded, but the results have not been aired by
pigeon.  It seems interesting to have fought in a tournament, and not really know or
remember how one did.  What's with that?  I hope I did well.
     I wish everyone in Ardivent well.  May you fight your best and earn Ardivent the
glory it deserves.
                      Sadie DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ARDIVENT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for JANIS JOBLIN, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after 
mashing TRIA SKATHACH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Well, everybody's 
pal SADIE moved hers record to 13-4-1 by defeating FINGERS BROOKE in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 5 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, 
but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad BLUVALLEY WARRIORS?  Big bad BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  Big bad BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS.  ARDIVENT's afraid of the big bad BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  Tra la la la la!  
For those of you who like math, try this one:  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS + Weapons That go 
Boom = FANDILS + Avoid City.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  There's got to be more reason for the 
sending of PIGPEN to the Dark Arena than his record (7-4-0).  Anybody got any ideas 
THE 27 CLUB?  For those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed LUIZA KLU by 
the ear and took her away to a place where she won't need a coat.  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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Well, well; kudos to our own Sadie who may have lost the DM fight to Robert Johnson,
but wins the crown on points. It is her second Title. -- Fandil The Wise

All -- However, an 0-3 and a backed-into-title, is NOT grounds for a good day.  We
must overcome. -- WOF

Khalhum's Dwarf -- I hate you and the plate mail you rode in on! -- Fleetwood

Robert Johnson -- I salute you as my better and wish you only the best in The Big
Time. -- Sadie

Pigpen -- Turnabout is fair play--even though I didn't like the idea.  Salute. --
Jerome

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

Good goddess!  An oh-fer! -- Tria Skathach, embarrassed
P.S.  Seriously, Rocksock even lost to a Trustworthy Scribe!
