                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail gladiators of Rocanis!

     Six turns as Duelmaster and as promised, another, but my last, Duelmaster Column.  
I'm surprised and yet not surprised I received my invite.  I can easily say I'm the 
youngest, and least skilled, of any gladiator my manager graduated with only 31 skills 
to date, a couple trains, and only two ratings; a master and an expert.  Don't get me 
wrong, I'm glad I received my invite, but I'll need to train up a bit in order to 
compete in ADM.
     I also wanted to welcome back Grizzled Veterans with their 78.9% winning record 
percentage to Rocanis--I think.  Last turn, I was expecting to match (and lose) again 
against Vealzebub of Demonic Delicacies, but he physically disappeared from the 
rankings.  This doesn't bode well, as the last anyone saw him was on top of Spirit 
Ridge offering final prayers to Ahringol, God of the Dead, prior to heading off to the 
Halloween Tournament.  While it's always good to remain in Ahringol's good graces, 
it's even better to not draw his attention to one's self.  For my last turn, I'm going 
to light the torch and try out my new rhythm and new ancient wood quarterstaff  in the 
Dark Arena.  The good thing about having a two handed weapon as your favorite for an 
aimed blow, is you never need to worry about a backup weapon.  Am I right, am I right?  
Up top from my fellow aimed blows.  Nothing? No other aimed blows out there?  
(crickets).  Anyway, for anyone who might want to cross swords, or wood, again and 
read newly crafted arena spotlights, I'm traveling to Talahya #100. 
     In closing, it's time for the Duelmaster's feast at Mylar's and everyone is 
welcome.  The guest of honor, other than me of course, is Jommy of Men of Steel for 
our last, final bout in the arena and allowing me to ascend to the Duelmaster throne 
one last time.  Your meal and drinks are on me.  To my other fellow gladiators, I will 
leave you all with some words of encouragement.  Remember, each defeat in the arena is 
only a delay on the long road (or short in my case) to becoming the Duelmaster of 
Rocanis and a Lord Protector of Alastari!

                                          Humbly,

                                          Anusha of Skull Squadron
                                          Duelmaster of Rocanis and Lord Protector
                                          Grimwood, manager

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ROCANIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SKULL SQUADRON, since MEN OF 
STEEL took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  MEN OF STEEL turned 
their 3-0-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
GUARD DOG win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Due to absence, and inability to 
defend the throne, ANUSHA has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm 
earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as GREYLOCK takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next 
guy, but hey THEM, whyja send BUMS to the Dark Arena, look at his record, huh?  We're 
all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
