                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Up From the Sea made a good attempt.  Is there anyone who might post a worthier
challenge?  It's starting to feel nice up here.  Now that we replaced all the black
curtains and cushions with pink ones, I think I'll stay up here a while.  Bring it!!
-- Telenia

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TRICORUS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, TERESAI fought NYARLATHOTEP 
and gained 19 points and contributed to DARK HORSEMEN's 2-2-0.  NYARLATHOTEP has lost 
to TERESAI, falling 16 points, while helping make RAISING R'LYEH a 1-1-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and TELENIA remains TRICORUS' top 
warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Blue Dolphin Inn?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  DARK HORSEMEN has cause to stand tall, 
as they were TRICORUS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided DARK HORSEMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was RAISING R'LYEH.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
OMINOUS REIGN's warrior BREAKER BAR.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in TRICORUS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TRICORUS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Nyarlathotep -- Hmm, I wonder if we can use "the onslaught of Chaos" as an excuse not
to write personals today?  I dunno about the rest of the team, but I'm feeling really
confused. -- Barochdal

Brass Monkey -- I never did like monkeys much.  But for you, I'll buy a banana. --
Shalaitha

Vector -- There seems to be an implication here that you'll go veering all over the

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
