                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     From the out-house to the penthouse!!!  What a turn of events it's been for me
over the past 29 turns, as my career started with a trip to the DA and then lived to
tell about it... only to ascend to the throne as Osksi's Duelmaster!  I owe Marma
Duke a big thanks for never sending me back to the night fights....  I'm sure that
thought had crossed his mind more than once.
     A big shout out Mega Pixel over these past two (hopefully three) turns... there
is nothing more enjoyable than pounding a tin can into submission under the weight of
my shiny Morning Star.  Some people may hate that weapon, but let me tell you it sure
leaves an impression (literally) on heavy armor when it connects!  You'd think he'd
thank me for ventillating the platemail with puncture holes so he could be a little
cooler while fighting on the sands.  Oh well!!!
     In case you couldn't guess... I'm challening Mega Pixel again this turn
because... I LOVE the smell of TP swiss cheese in the morning!!!  Ha... that was
FUNNY!!!!

Until next time.... your crazy duelmaster,
-- Funny Farm Fiend-

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, OSKSI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, STATE OF MIND, since 
GENERATION X took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  AESIR turned 
their 4-1-0 turn into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
FALRONDIAL VOTH win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FALRONDIAL VOTH 
beat HUSTLERS AMBITION and HUSTLERS AMBITION lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as COBBLESTONE 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
OSKSI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  PASTA the most avoided team?  What 
insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was STATE OF MIND.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, SALDORINIVAN KIRO was this turn's most challenged warrior. 
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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
