                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Kung-Fu Master?  Dear Pitr is a good man, but... for the duelmastership?
How tedious.

                                    Lady Slipper

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of AMEN-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BUD BOLLARD caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LUCY BORDEN and was awarded 12 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MEDICARE put down 
LILLY SCOOTER, causing her to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
out BONNIE BARROW made hers bid for the throne as she challenged LADY SLIPPER in an 
all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail BONNIE BARROW, Duelmaster of AMEN-TEI!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In AMEN-TEI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  WAYFARERS is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of TOO OLD are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in AMEN-TEI as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --

Lady Slipper thinks the Kung-Fu Master is tedious, she should try the Virginal
Concubine.  Well, maybe LS wouldn't mind.  I did.  Talk about wasted time!  And I
wasn't even making a pass at her, she isn't my type. -- Eban Stranger

Chelsea -- Normally I don't go for women who are taller than I am, but... are really
bad?  Good bad, if you know what I mean?  I could maybe get with something like that.
-- Bud Bollard

Politeness never helped a beggar much, especially not in the arena.  And that's GOOD.
Good he should be polite, and good I should RUN HIM DOWN. -- Illy Scooter
P.S.  Besides, he had a beard.

Slither -- What kind of idiot thought a six foot long mechanical serpent would be a
good idea?  Managers!  Tcha! -- Coco Sweet
P.S.  Not your fault, but I figure since you're a golem, I don't have to worry about
hurting your feelings, right?

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Wayfarers
