                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Veteran Mercenary.  Gill couldn't handle the Assassin, but *I* could handle
this dude, and I did.  So I'm the Duelmaster now.  Until an Assassin comes for me, I
suppose.

                                    Kolbert Moon

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VALAMANTIS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, NEEVAN POVAR fought AMBITIOUS 
GUARD and gained 12 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 10's 3-1-0.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and KOLBERT MOON remains VALAMANTIS' top warrior 
for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Aradi Alyia uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.  Is it really true that VALAMANTIS 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, VALAMANTIS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VALAMANTIS and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen 
sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

The Convicted Assassin took me by surprise.  From the back.  With a poisoned dagger.
These things happen. -- Gilbern Juss

I was not at all "surprised" by M. Chardinee.  An old familiar foe. -- Gilfmet Ivers

B.F. Skinner -- Losing your cool, are you?  Stepping away from the old "violence is
not the answer" line?  I could wish you'd done it with someone else. -- Imrom Llews
P.S.  Not that there is much in the way of "someone else."

The Fratsfa Slave, as we have long known, is not much of a challenge. -- Neevan Povar
