                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My final column as outgoing Lord Protector and Duelmaster will be all about me.
Finally, I get the time and place to share this information.
born: 13-10-7-21-9-9-15 basher
Poor Endurance/Good damage as expected.
At 7-2-1 arena and 11-6-2 tournaments (1 TV) I was killed
I went 8-3-2 in Dead Adepts and arose from the dead.
I have gone 7-2-0 arena (2 DMs) and 5-3-1 tourneys since
My skill learn rate is 1.83
I have advanced master attack, masters in init and rip, adex in decise, and 2 experts
I like both the WH and GA. (info since arising)
28-85-4 1K   WH
19-39-2        GA
     So I leave with 5 kills, 2 TVs, 2 DMs, and I hope Janis Joblin is around for my
next and last turn to allow me to attempt to avenge the fallen Fleetwood.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARDIVENT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as THE 27 CLUB is pushed out 
of top team by FANDILS, who came from 2nd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
MILDRED LEONA fought LORENS KLU and gained 13 points and contributed to FANDILS' 
3-1-0.  LORENS KLU has lost to MILDRED LEONA, falling 9 points, while helping make 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, SADIE kept 
THE 27 CLUB's warrior, JANIS JOBLIN, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that 
our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?  
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the THE 27 CLUB 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARDIVENT, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided THE 27 CLUB stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
FANDILS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was THE 27 CLUB's 
warrior JANIS JOBLIN.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Congratulations go out to FANDILS, 
with SADIE revenging a bloodfeud against JANIS JOBLIN of THE 27 CLUB.  Is it really 
true that ARDIVENT has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd 
ask...   
     I like this place, ARDIVENT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Sadie -- I am proud of you. -- Fandil The Wise

Tria Skathatch -- I had a fun girls-day-out with you. -- Sadie

Sad, sad, sad.  The Red Sands continue to take their toll.  27th Club's Janis Joblin,
why did you have to kill Fleetwood?  He was a +4 Decise, Endu bonused 17-9-7-15-9-16-
11 striker and he had one of my all-time favorite names.  May you take a magnificent
bath in a large pile of recent bovine excrement.  May Fleetwood fight well in that
Great Arena In The Sky. -- Fandil The Wise and Sad

Ambitious Guard and Happy Peasant -- What gives?  Is The Commission feeding you
steroids in your stew?  You fought well--too well--and we are appropriately
embarrassed. -- Earl and Jerome

     Good! -- Harbad Kore, Ambitious Guard

Hereford Jones -- I guess you must have caught me on a good day.  It was certainly a
better day than Fleetwood had. -- Casper John

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Beware the pull of Ardivent, Arena of The Red Sands. --
WOF

Fleetwood -- Just remember that!  Luck, pure luck.  And luck always goes sour in
three days. -- Rocksock
P.S.  Oh, sorry, I just noticed that you've died.  What a dumb thing to do!

Two-three, with the new guy defeating a standby, and Fingers settling the Owl's hash,
or whatever owls eat, for killing Luiza. -- Tria Skathach

Our congratulations to Sadie. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Sadie -- If that's what it took to get you to immortality (actually, just eternal
youth and the promise of resurrection, but hey), I was glad to do it. -- Tria
Skathach

Blind Owl -- For Luiza, even though it was random. -- Fingers Brooke

Casper John -- I thought you were a FRIENDLY ghost.  That wasn't friendly behavior,
bub. -- Hereford Jones
P.S.  You're a real skill-sucker, too.

Deathscar -- Darned hairy little runt!  You can count yourself lucky I didn't have
time to get my socks off.  I'd've beaned you a good pair. -- Rocksock Jones

Pish. -- Lorens Klu
