                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's with a heavy heart that I'm writing to you one final time, as this will be
my last turn as Fratsfa's Duelmaster.  I was unable to write last turn, as Marma Duke
and I were on a scouting mission to determine which ADM arena I would attend upon my
graduation.  Marms ultimately decided Talhalya would be my new home upon leaving
these fair sands... which is exciting, for I will once again be reunited with my
brethren Nay Palm and White Flame.
     Marma Duke informed me that it had been a long standing tradition of his to
share the stats of his warriors who graduate when on the throne, so here is a look
the fire which burns under my armor:

          17(+1)-10(+1)-9-15-17-9-9 

.....Now, while I'm not the sexiest thing to look at, I'm most definitely kinda
hot!!!
     Before I leave you, I have a tidbit for those warriors who are taking a bit
longer to graduate than expected.  I was created approximately 16-17 years ago...
and I highly doubt Marma Duke expected me to take my sweet old time getting that call
to ADM, but the wait was surely worth it!  Because, my friends, even though your
manager might think you're Not So Hot, you just might have what it takes when it
really counts on the sands.
     Now break out your lighters in unison and bid me farewell.... for Talhalya holds
my future.  I hope it's a Hot one!!

Your Duelmaster,
Not So Hot

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out FRATSFA to see 
what's new.  Like, DRAGONS GUARD II had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off 
#1 spot by PYROMANIA!  Way to go PYROMANIA!  MVP award for AMBROSE?  THE ORDER's 
proud of him after beating THE SCRIBE and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  AREOPOLITE's match with ONYX cost him a loss of 6 points!  The Duelmaster 
isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  STONE GOLEM knows this.  He was Dark 
Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  NOT SO 
HOT stopped STONE GOLEM dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said FRATSFA's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  BLOOD AND GUTS! was FRATSFA's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why FLOWER GIRLS' been avoiding BLOOD 
AND GUTS! so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is CONFLICT 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of FRATSFA!  He's got a 4-1-0, 
is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this guy???  NOT SO HOT gets sent to the Dark Arena, 
battles STONE GOLEM, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet PYROMANIA manager is 
surprised!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  FRATSFA is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Congratulations to repeat Duelmaster and now Lord Protector Not So Hot.  We think
he's HOT!  Come on over and vixit my gals at The Flower Shoppe Not So, and bring
along all those other Pyromaniacs.  You'll be glad you did! -- Lady Fern and The
flower Girls

My, oh my, Not So Hot, you were one hot studmuffin in our wrestling match!  And what
a weapon!  (wink) -- Gloating Gardenia
P.S.  And thanks for all those new tricks you taught me!

Champ Chump -- You sneaky devil, you!  Or is it your manager who is sneaky French?  I
sure did love the way you used that tool, hon. -- Caustic Crocus (hugs and kisses)

Salient -- The ending to that fight was rather salient, but we had fun on the way,
didn't we?  I hope to see more of you. -- Savage Snowball

Zoum La Bouse -- That was loooooong, slooooow torture, but it surely ended with a
wonderful climax.  I loved it! -- Torturing Tulip

Otto's Parts -- A BIG 4-1 and 41 points!  We want a piece of you! -- All Us Flower
Girls

All, personals, personals, personals... where are all the loving personals? -- Lady
Fern

     Acapulco?

How can the tides turn!  After two splendid turns, and a beautiful tournament, I was
starting to feel confident about the end....  Well, I lost the Current Top Team
bonus, and three of my guys lost fights they could have won... what an ugly day!  The
good point is that the contest remains in the reach of many teams. -- Le Pentarque

Nicely fought, Tulip, I love to be slowly tortured by a gal. -- Zoum la Bouse.

That was not Jolly! -- Two

Gloating Gardenia -- A nice quick visit to the flower shop... is there any other
kind? -- Not so Hot

Anastrianna -- Yes, we Pyromaniacs do enjoy your company in the arena! -- Hot Stuff

Onyx -- Too hot!  Too HOT!!! -- 451 Degrees
