                             Notes from the arena champ.

Wut do you mean I gots to do tha skribbul-skribbuls?

(BlackHart explains the Duelmaster's column)

(Borkdup glares at BlackHart)

(BlackHart insists Borkdup do a DM column)

(Borkdup raises one eyebrow)

(BlackHart threatens Borkdup if she doesn't do a DM column)

(Borkdup calmly picks up her broadsword)

(BlackHart throws his hands in the air and storms off muttering "crazy
she-orks!")

(Borkdup grins evilly...breaks the third wall and stares at you)

My chair.  Come and gets it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
OSKSI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MERCURY RISING, since 
HOWLIN VANDALS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see DELTA AURIGAE win a fight and gain 13 points, 
terribly.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, DEAN has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as VICIOUS SID takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for OSKSI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the OSKSI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide
