                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     By the knots in my natty beard, look who's the Champion of Dayla Kiv, the 
Duelmaster, as they have come to be called.  Who?  Why, it's me, Tane, your favorite 
dwarf.  
     Hanval the Claw tried mightily hard, but these Stand-Ins just can't get the job 
done against a well-polished gladiator and his even better polished sword, and that 
was the case with good ol' Hanval.  I do hope he does something about that claw hand 
of his.  It looks rather peculiar.  
     Who will I fight this round?  Another Stand-In, you ask?  Hanval the Claw again, 
you ponder?  Or will it be that pesky Khalhums Dwarf, who's now calling himself the 
Traveling Tinker?  Masks, masks, masks.  Everyone's wearing a mask these days.  Why, 
here, even the High Elf calls himself Hagar the Northman.  
     Anyway, these and other burning questions have yet to be resolved, mates.  Time 
will tell, and I will get older.  It's the way of the world.  If you have no idea what 
I'm talking about, HAR, HAR, that makes two of us.  
     Until next round, Dayla Kiv, keep your swords sharp and your beer cold.  Speaking 
of ale, I'm off to the Frothy Mug for a cold one--I have to train, you know.  

                                          -- Tane
                                             Duelmaster of Dayla Kiv

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for RAVANA, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing UNCLE FRANK 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  UNCLE FRANK lost to RAVANA and drops 18 points.  It's a proud day 
for the THE FUNKENSTEINS stable, as their warrior, BIG SAL, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at 
that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Chandar Lo -- Running with favorite weapon and rhythm, probably not a bad thing. -- 
Erebus Impact

Red Kogan/Sand Dancers -- Thanks, gents.  See you somewhere in retirement.  And 
farewell, all.  This is the last ad I'll write. -- Erebus Impact 

Komar the Penniless -- You're getting better, you actually attacked this turn.  Hey, 
wait a minute... either you're getting better, or I'm not as good as my teammates.  
Oh, man, you just ruined my day. -- J. Fair

Red Kogan -- That wasn't pretty.  Time to reconsider everything about the way I fight. 
-- S. Horror

Hanval the Claw -- Three for three on attacks/criticals.  I'm diggin' it. -- Tane 

Krenshew -- Thanks for the introduction to the "fight game."  Entertaining duel, and 
good job, sir. -- P. Mosaic

Arenamaster Dernal -- No apology necessary.  But we must inquire where you live, where 
it's always so cold that it interferes with writing. -- Argonauts, collectively, as 
one entity  

Argonauts -- Remind me to teach all of you how to write a DM Column.  This is becoming 
embarrassing. -- Medea (your lovely and talented manager)

Shewish Horror -- That was, yep, horrible.  Now all we need is a Shew. -- Red Kogan

Parsifal Mosaic -- Decorative.  I figure giving you a loss on your first fight is, 
well, you have nowhere to go but up, right? -- Krenshew

And 2-1 against standbys.  Oh, well.

Regulus Fury -- Come on up any time. -- Baikal s'Kren

Regulus Fury -- I'm a tinker, we can fix things, including ourselves. -- 
Khad'drakh'n'dhaz of Khra, known as the Traveling Tinker, maker of superb blades

Erebus Impact -- My lips are sealed, except for the passage of beer. -- Hanval the 
Claw

Jakarta Fair -- Alas, parties don't pay well in these desperate times. -- Madame U-
Tana

Shewish Horror -- Well, it depends on "hinterland of what"?  To the Adantri, it's the 
Imperial capital and full of action. -- Red Kogan

Jakarta Fair -- I was never from Khalhums.  Krha is a dwarven nation north of Lirith 
Kai.  Quite a different place. -- Khad'drakh'n'dhaz of Khra
P.S.  One could probably make a good story of the fall of Khalhums, but my boss 
refuses to do it at this point.  Says it "isn't in her job description."
