                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     I almost let the Unknown Spymaster take this, but he and his horse made tracks
all over the office, and I just didn't like that.  Not that there's much to talk
about.  We'd get more conversation from a convention of mimes.
     Seven fights, one standby, no challenges, no avoids.  Kettelman had the biggest
point gain at 32, Bikini Line had the biggest loss at 32.  Odd to have the match like
that, even though it was the same fight.
     You people might want to think about this:  Lirin Kiv was closed when it had
more action than this.

                              "DARK ARENA" -- The Novel

    For centuries, the Shagornan Elves have been forced to live underground. 
    Human invaders, the Delarquans, burned their forests, sparking a war of elven 
    annihilation. The elders told tales that when the Delarquans marched to war 
    against the elves, the land itself bled as they passed. Since the war, the 
    elves have dwindled with every passing year, while the humans multiply like 
    rodents across the land of Alastari. 

    Now, the Delarquans have disappeared. Some say they departed, others indicate 
    it.s a ruse, but there have been whispered rumors of another greater threat 
    looming in the region. Khyron of the Shagornan Elves has been tasked to 
    determine the cause, realizing that failure is probable and at the end of the 
    road death could be the only reward. 

    Khyron has known only the safety of the caves, but now he must journey to the 
    world above...the World with No Ceiling.

Throughout the years, many fine writers have played Duelmasters/Duel II and have 
contributed greatly to the history and background of the world of Alastari.  One very 
intense period, during the early '90's, was during the Rocanis War, when authors from 
both the Delarquan and Free Blades arenas collaborated on writing the history of the 
invasion of the arena-city of Rocanis.  Mark Manley (aka Grimwood) is a long-time 
manager in Rocanis, and was one of the writers who contributed so much to this 
history.  Over the subsequent years, he has worked to bring his novelization to life 
and make the story of the War and the preceding events which led to it available to 
the greater public.  Many Rocanis legends appear in the book: Itoz Trollbane, 
Sandstorm, and others.  The novel is a treat to read--even more so if you are familiar 
with the game!
