                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, after almost fifteen years, a brother of State of Mind has once again ascended
to the throne of our fair city, Osksi.  I have to say, the view from up here is
everything that Marma Duke told me it would be.... the big question is how long do I
stay on the throne or even, how long do I stay in Osksi now?

Gen X -- you get my avoid, because I just don't think a Psychic Friend matches up
well against someone who Got No Brain!

Games Library -- You get my challenges.... let the Games begin!!!

I have to admit, I would have liked to challenge Farfale but it appears he has his
mind set on prepping for the tourney instead of wishing to wear the golden crown of
Osksi's duelmaster.

Well met,
-Got No Brain-

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, OSKSI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see PSIONIC PSYCHO win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
VANDELSHIMHAN TIRU beat TV DINNER and TV DINNER lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  GOT NO BRAIN challenged ELVORN MARSLAN for OSKSI's Title this turn, and guess 
what happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, OSKSI may be getting bland, as 
GOT NO BRAIN stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, 
how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
DREAMS OF KADATH, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like STATE OF MIND 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  PSIONIC PSYCHO was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Ghost of Melandon Sorn -- I didn't expect that!  But maybe I finally found my rhythm.
I salute our valiant effort. --- Psychic Friend

Elvorn Marslan -- I am REALLY getting sick of you! -- TV Dinner

Taint of the Sea -- I guess I like cleaning up the ocean. -- Mailer Daemon

Spirit of Quachil Attaus -- Watch out!  I'm just beginning to flex my muscles. --
Crash Diet

Reaper --  Round robin?  I thought it was double elimination!  Maybe you guys should
stay away from Crash for a while.  I can't seem to control him! -- Storm Lord

Tarobinz Maur -- I feel like we fight each other every other turn.  Well fought title
Fight, my fair friend. - Got No Brain

Vandelshimhan Tiru -- I get tired just saying your full name.  I came at you a second
time strictly for the learns.  It was too good of an opportunity to pass up.
Besides, I actually got you desperate this time! -- Placid Intensity

Shub Nigguarth -- I was surprised you got the jump on me there, to be honest! --
Virtual Reality

Perfect Drug -- I think I OD'd. -- Psionic Psycho

Bob the Inhaler -- Let's have a rematch in ten turns and see if the result is the
same? -- Under Pressure

Placid Intensity -- Hmm, I tried countering you with what I hoped was tight-focused
relaxation, and it seems to have worked.  But I don't think I can do it again, too
exhausting. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru

If I was M. Chardinee, I'd be really tired of never increasing in my rank, never
getting to keep and use new skills, never having a record... must be hard. --
Kovaramann Voth

Got No Brain -- I must say, it makes you a natural for a gladiator.  Can you manage a
word or two from the top? -- Tarobinz Maur
P.S.  Brainless chatter is quite acceptable.

TV Dinner -- You have been found out!  Even the fans know that tv dinners are
pathetic.  Good thing you've got gladiating to fall back on. -- Elvorn Marslan

Psychic Friend -- Some friend you are! -- Ghost of Melandon Sorn
P.S.  Did you know they have a vampire on the Infirmary staff?

Reaper -- How can you send those wimps to the Dark Arena before we have a chance to
get a few wins off 'em? -- Jorja, Games Library
