                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     By the Fates' grace, I once again proved to be the victor.  Perhaps the
Commission shall deem me worth of Induction, but until then, I shall continue to give
it my all.  Since not doing so can put one in a box real quick.  Best of luck to all,
unless, of course, it's vs. the Inconsistent Fury.

                                          -- Manza Wiggles

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ROCANIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The MIDDLE WAY 20 guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in 
the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ELISE 
GOUDGE fought BAM! and gained 23 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 20's 4-1-0.  
BAM! has lost to ELISE GOUDGE, falling 20 points, while helping make THEM a 2-2-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and MANZA WIGGLES remains 
ROCANIS' top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ROCANIS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Manza Wiggles -- Congrats on the title.  I thought if I won, I'd get my faves for the
Halloween tournament, but looking again at my skills I don't know why I waited.  Way
too much INI and not enough ATT, DEF, or damage.  Not to mention I've been using the
epee at an incredibly low crit rate.  Either way, good fight and good luck. -- Calis

Magnus -- Close, very close.  I'm sure that in the future our matches shall be just
as quick but much more... ah... not close.  Hopefully I'll continue to come out with
the victory. -- Linkin Logger

Elise Goudge -- Yeouch!  I'd best get used to it, cause you seem to be most skilled
with a blade. -- Tam Tam Ka'Blam

Leelayla Norin -- Zing!  Guess my sparkling smile didn't distract you at all. -- Tiki
La'Bane

Chabob Erle -- I smiled also--yulp, doesn't help--so next time, I'll not do that and
just hit ya. -- Rathnok Mulroot

Mr. Hooter -- My, my and oh my.  See grin'in works--first round's on anybody who's
got the coins.  Ha ha. -- Manza Wiggles

Manza Wiggles -- You and your stars!  *I* had the luck of the stars with me, and I
was doing *fine*... right up till Mercury went retrograde.  Curses. -- Forlis Hooler

Rathnok Mulroot -- I didn't mean to *demolish* you, exactly.  Well, not really.  But
I was trying a new smoked meat recipe, and I was out of mesquite roots, and there you
*were* and.... -- Chebob Erle

Hey, he sabotaged me, okay?  I don't want to hear any more about it. -- Dobie Frome
P.S.  Besides, I have a headache.

Tiki La'Bane -- It's your style. Or maybe your stars.  You're born to be unlucky.  I
can tell. -- Leelayla Norin

Tam Tam Ka'Blam -- Right, what Leelayla said.  Maybe you can hide behind Tiki, and
all the bad luck will hit *her* leaving you alone? -- Elise Goudge
