                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Convicted Assassin?  That's the only person willing to fight me?  He's
probably crazy, besides being an inept criminal.

                                  Elvorn Marslan

                                      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 RIGATONI win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PERFECT DRUG 
beat VECTOR UNSTABLE and VECTOR UNSTABLE lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as HELIAS SOL takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, OSKSI? 
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  GENERATION X, 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.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, KOVARAMANN VOTH was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I 
can give a little credit to TV DINNER of GENERATION X for challenging up by 23 to 
KOVARAMANN VOTH.  TV DINNER lost to get 69 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone 
else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  PSIONIC PSYCHO's 6-13-0 has earned him the Dark 
Arena.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     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

Virtual Reality -- Yes, before you say it... that was a pitiful effort!  I'm hanging
my head in shame!  Oh well.  At least my manager has a soft spot for me and decided
not to send me to fight in the night.  Don't get too cocky though!  What goes around
comes around. -- TV Dinner

Zombie Bait -- I think I saw you in the 'Night of the Living Dead'!  I guess I should
have known you can take a beating, but I thought you guys just wandered around in
torn shirts and jeans... sheesh! -- Kareoke Killer

Cthylla -- You know, my teammates and I are really starting to hate you! -- Instant
Access

Man, this was a brutal turn!  One of the worst I ever had.  I am sure Marma Duke is
going to make it worse by barking like a little chihuahua!  Enjoy it while you can,
Marma.  :P -- Stormy

Rigatoni -- Something was telling me... pasta... you want pasta for dinner tonight.
-- The Voice Inside

     Shouting, more like it.  I heard clear over here.

Psionic Psycho -- I hate to do this to you, old friend, but I must say so long and
farewell.  You were a fun experiment (13-19-8-15-5-9-15 AB) gone awry... created
during the 90s pre-terrablood.  I would have loved to have graduated you, but you
just didn't want to cooperate. -- Marma Duke

TV Dinner -- BWAHH HAHA HA!!!!  Wait a moment... let me get this straight....  You of
31 arena fights couldn't handle little ol' me with a paltry 2-2 record?   You have to
thank your lucky stars there because I came oh so close to killing you during that
little tango of ours!!  When I get in range I think I'm going to up-challenge for the
easy win!!! -- Virtual Reality <laughing oh so hard>

TV Dinner -- LOL... really... how did you not beat me? -- Virtual Reality

Nug-Soth -- For some reason I think I may have been distracted during that fight, but
I'm unsure why that may be. -- Stoned Immaculate

Ghost of Channel Surfer -- My apologies for your loss, as it was un-intentional
during a random matchup. -- Virtual Reality

Taint of the Sea -- Ah... iodine?  Maybe a bit of an oil spill, too. -- Skaevolovian
Kor
P.S.  And apparently the Commission has not yet seen fit to acknowledge my non-
dwarfdom.  It isn't that I have anything personal against dwarves, except that their
ceilings are too low.  Just that I'm not one.

I get really annoyed at the Kung-Fu Master, and it doesn't do a bit of good.  He just
gives me this maddeningly serene smile and calls me a grasshopper. -- Tarobinz Maur

Damn, that Khalhums Dwarf's a nasty dude. -- Kovaramann Voth

Good gods, EPEE?  I absolutely don't have either the wit or the deftness to handle
one. -- Elvorn Marslan

TV Dinner -- Oh, good, that's just what we need, a TV dinner with confidence. --
