                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Victory over a standby, to take the title from an outgoing teammate.  This is
pathetic.

                                  Lirini tyl Varin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DAYLA KIV!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, TERREINE TYL TAHL fought LALVO OF THE PEN and gained 21 
points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 3-2-0.  MOKO TEN ZORA has lost to MADAME 
U-TANA, falling 5 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 3-2-0 turn.  We should 
ask GREEN DISEASE about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Crystal Wheel uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

                          SUMMER FACE-TO-FACE IN CLEVELAND!

Our summer FTF will be an eastern one this time, located in Cleveland, Ohio  on July 
17-19, 2009.  It will be held at the Holiday Inn in Strongsville, OH, at 15471 
Royalton Rd (440-238-8800).  Rooms are only $95.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy.  

There is a free shuttle from the airport, free parking, and free high-speed wireless 
internet in all guestrooms ($3/day in public space).  The hotel has an indoor pool, 
pool table, and hockey, and a fitness center.   The hotel is located 1/2 mile from the 
largest mall in Northeast Ohio, with indoor minigolf and pottery painting, and right 
next door to Iceland Arena, which offers open skate and skate rental.  They also have 
four bikes on property available for checkout, as the Metro parks are next door as 
well.  The rooms are blocked--ask for the "Reality Simulations" room block.  There are 
many restaurants and nightspots nearby and at the Mall, as well as a cafe in the 
hotel.  

The tournament information sheet will be out imminently.  We hope you're all looking
