                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All Hail Rocanis greatest, yes, the greatest arens in all the land.  Thanks to
Cobra for skipping town, and to Dolgar for allowing me to be the victor!  Best of
luck to all.

                       Hal'igge Joyroc

                                      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, DOBIE FROME fought DOOM FROM THE 
SOUTH and gained 17 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 20's 2-3-0.  ERIK has lost 
to IEZA VON DRAKA, falling 6 points, while helping make MEN OF STEEL a 3-2-1 turn.  
This turn HAL'IGGE JOYROC challenged DOLGAN in what was ROCANIS' Title bout.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HAL'IGGE JOYROC remains ROCANIS' 
top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that Mylar's uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  SERPENTS HOLD has cause to stand tall, as 
they were ROCANIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided SERPENTS HOLD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
INCONSISTENT FURY.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
INCONSISTENT FURY's warrior MANZA WIGGLES.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ROCANIS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ROCANIS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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

Chebob Erle -- Wicked name, let's not match again. -- Rathrok Mulroot

Forlig Hooler -- Bow!  Style matchup gave me the advantage there.

Calis -- Thanks for letting me win, I keep getting the almost to DA syndrome. -- Icza
Von-Draka

Dolgan -- Massive you are! -- Hal'igge Joyroc

Manza Wiggles -- I could've passed on that one.  It makes me look bad, and I hate
looking bad.  Well, okay, I mildly dislike looking bad. -- Forlis Hooler

Rathnok Mulroot -- Wow!  I don't know if that was a fluke, but I like it! -- Chebob
Erle

That was totally embarrassing.  I will never be able to hold my head up after that.
-- Ghost of Jemilla Lourdon

Nakor -- How odd, but how gratifying!  I won't suggest we do it again, though--you'd
probably beat me the second time. -- Elise Goudge

I consider that win a completed bloodfeud agsinst the Mage's Apprentice, though I
would have LIKED to kill him. -- Dobie Frome
