                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I was all set to dance with you, Ria, and then you went and fell over.  Too much
party the night before?

                                    Ebria Gannet

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ROCANIS this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, SEAMAN fought MAGE'S APPRENTICE and 
gained 20 points and contributed to SEA DOGS' 3-2-1.  FREM HARID has lost to RIA 
ROSEDANCER, falling 6 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 20 a 2-3-0 turn.  And all 
eyes were on SPLAT this turn as it ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ROCANIS has 
a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Wanton Troll?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  MIDDLE WAY 20 has cause to stand tall, as 
they were ROCANIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And avoiding MIDDLE WAY 20 more than any other team we find INCONSISTENT FURY.  
ROCANIS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  PURPLE KITTEN was 
sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  Is it 
really true that ROCANIS has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought 
I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in ROCANIS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Mainakha-Te -- You're awesome, even with a 20 spd ya went first.  *grin*  I know why
you're so awesome--cause I named ya! -- Banthius
P.S.  I am sending PK to fight in the Dark, hope she doesn't match wit you. -- B.

Ebra Gannet -- I guess we be back ta switching. *sigh* -- Ria Rosedancer

Abelinda Chase -- Still reconsidering the 'gladiator' stuff?  *smiles*  Least the
perks are good or so I hear. -- Fonzeth Hilgra

Rirorni Spy -- Shall we try that again? -- Balzec

Frem Harid -- Ahh it finally seems the commission has reconized me, thanks for
arranging it. -- Purple Kitten

Night Fighters of Rocanis -- I've been issued a torch and my favorite weapon!  Who
shall cross blades with me? -- Purple Kitten

Fonzeth Hilgra -- What I was "rethinking" was the business of paid assassins in an
alley.  The more I rethinking it, the better it sounds as a solution to you. --
Abelinda Chase

Purple Kitten -- Surely it was my turn to win? -- Frem Harid

And the most offensive thing is that the "Rirorni Thug" isn't even Rirorni!  Humans
are so unreasonable. -- Debra Farin
P.S.  Oh, wait, I'm human, too.  Huh.  When did that happen?

The Mage's Apprentice is a fool, but this is not news.  He kept muttering something
about brooms bringing buckets of water, which makes no sense at all. -- Erbin Goetz

Our congratulations to Purple Kitten, and we think it's high time she was recognized.
-- Jorja and the Middle Way
