                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I heard you were a rabbit, Falkynor, though I must say you don't smell like one.
Very distinctive, rabbits.  You smell more like some bird.

                                    Ready Eddie

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARADI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see JILL RUSTLE win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HUSH PUPPY 
beat CATIPILLAR and CATIPILLAR lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT READY EDDIE is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ARADI? 
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARADI's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the ARADI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

Hornet -- Well, I always did hear that the best way to deal with hornets and stuff
like that was to spray 'em.  So I did, and it worked. -- Garm

Wasp -- And I always listen to Garm.  He knows what he's talking about. -- Hush Puppy

Potato Bug -- Euwh.  And for the potatoes, too. -- Chiquita Chiwawa

Catipillar -- I don't see how you manage all those legs.  I'd like to bite off some
of them. -- Jill Rustle
P.S.  It's indecent to have that many legs.

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), free 
airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the tournament info 
sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
