                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All hail Rocanis, greatest place in the realm.  I'd like to welcome an old
returning squad, Skull Squadron, at least I hope they return this round.  Also must
give a shout out to another group of warriors from some of our city's eary days-- Yo!
-- Call of Cthulhu-- hope the turns treat you well.  Okay, best of luck to all unless
of course it's vs the Inconsistent Fury!

                         Your DM,

                          Rathnok Mulroot

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ROCANIS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  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, TIKI LA'BANE fought CALIS and gained 25 points and 
contributed to INCONSISTENT FURY's 3-2-0.  CALIS has lost to TIKI LA'BANE, falling 12 
points, while helping make MEN OF STEEL a 2-2-1 turn.  This turn RATHNOK MULROOT 
challenged FORLIS HOOLER in what was ROCANIS' Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone 
the Duelmaster have failed, and RATHNOK MULROOT 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 Mylar's until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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?  Always good to rest in ROCANIS, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ROCANIS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

     The crowd was surprisingly orderly, but it was still a crowd, and the Commission 
clerk, Algernon, looked at it uneasily.  Whenever this many people came together to 
petition for something, it meant trouble.  For him, anyway.  Records to be altered.  
Altering records was Bad.  It made Extra Work.
     His assistant clerk leaned close and whispered, "If it weren't for gladiators, we 
wouldn't have jobs.  Smile at them and ask what they want."
     Algernon closed his eyes briefly.  Looking at this crowd made him dizzy.  They 
were all wearing black and white stripes.  Like a herd of zebras, except that zebras 
didn't carry swords.  Then he took a deep breath and managed a smile.  "What... ah, 
what can I do for you?"
     "We want new names," the first gladiator said.  There was a number on the front 
of his shirt:  0381.  He thumped the number with his thumb.  "This here isn't a 
name--"
     "We want REAL names!"  That voice came from farther back in the crowd.
     "Yeah!  We've paid our dues," another shouted, "and we've EARNED real names!"
     One from the very back yelled, "I want to be called Tom."
     All the others turned to look at him.
     Algernon couldn't see him, but apparently those looks were accusing.  Well, he 
could understand that, "Tom" was such a... common name.
     "My mom called me Tom," the voice in the back protested.  "It's a good name."
     "It isn't the name you put on the petition," 0381 said.  "We talked about this.  
We got our manager's agreement.  You get the name on the petition."
     "But--!"
     Algernon didn't really want to keep staring at all these stripes while they 
argued.  He picked up the petition.  "These names are the ones you want?"
     0381 turned back.  "Yes."
     "It's a lot of trouble, and when other people see that YOU are getting name 
changes, THEY are going to want them--"  Seeing the gladiators beginning to frown... 
and finger their weapons, he went on quickly, "So I figure we might as well make it a 
complete deal.  A Name-Change-O-Rama.  Everyone who wants a name change can petition 
for it.  Get it all over with at once."  He glanced at the petition, shuddered 
slightly, and passed it to his clerk.  "We'll announce it, proclaim it, even, and you 
will get the names on this petition.  And others will get the names THEY think they 
should have had, too."  He paused.  "And I think I'll get a new name, I'm tired of 
being an Algernon...."

                              "DARK ARENA" -- The Novel

    For centuries, the Shagornan Elves have been forced to live underground. 
    Human invaders, the Delarquans, burned their forests, sparking a war of elven 
    annihilation. The elders told tales that when the Delarquans marched to war 
    against the elves, the land itself bled as they passed. Since the war, the 
    elves have dwindled with every passing year, while the humans multiply like 
    rodents across the land of Alastari. 

    Now, the Delarquans have disappeared. Some say they departed, others indicate 
    it.s a ruse, but there have been whispered rumors of another greater threat 
    looming in the region. Khyron of the Shagornan Elves has been tasked to 
    determine the cause, realizing that failure is probable and at the end of the 
    road death could be the only reward. 

    Khyron has known only the safety of the caves, but now he must journey to the 
    world above...the World with No Ceiling.

Throughout the years, many fine writers have played Duelmasters/Duel II and have 
contributed greatly to the history and background of the world of Alastari.  One very 
intense period, during the early '90's, was during the Rocanis War, when authors from 
both the Delarquan and Free Blades arenas collaborated on writing the history of the 
invasion of the arena-city of Rocanis.  Mark Manley (aka Grimwood) is a long-time 
manager in Rocanis, and was one of the writers who contributed so much to this 
history.  Over the subsequent years, he has worked to bring his novelization to life 
and make the story of the War and the preceding events which led to it available to 
the greater public.  Many Rocanis legends appear in the book: Itoz Trollbane, 
Sandstorm, and others.  The novel is a treat to read--even more so if you are familiar 
with the game!
