                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

 ....and some days.... Ambition is ALL you need as Falrondial discovered!  <smirk>
     Ah, yes... it's GOOD to be back on the throne of Osksi!  A little Hustle and a
little more Ambition sure do go a long way!  You know what they say about us TP's...
sometime we can be offensive and at other times we're just plain Offensive!  <where
is that drum roll?>
     I'm glad I had these purple robes tailored the last time I was DM... they sure
do fit nice and snug!

Until next turn,
-- Hustlers Ambition --

                                      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, GAMES LIBRARY, since STATE 
OF MIND took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see EXISTANCE MUNDANE win a fight and gain 15 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, EXISTANCE MUNDANE beat HERMOD and HERMOD lost 14 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, HUSTLERS 
AMBITION has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as FUNNY FARM FIEND 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.  What's the big D?  AESIR was the most avoided team?  
Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  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.  Looks like time for laurels 
or hemlock, FENRIS was challenged by DARK SARCASM, who was ranked 27 points below 
him.  And sure, DARK SARCASM lost alright, but gained 4 recognition for his pains.  
And pains they may indeed be!  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, 
but LOABAL DOMINATION has challenged up by 28 in an attempt against ROAD TRIPPIN.  
Well, ok, the upstart knave (where've I heard that before?) won this match and gained 
22 points to boot!  Ha ha ha, ROAD TRIPPIN.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for OSKSI's 
morgue.  More variety.  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!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Viper -- Snakebit, to say the least? -- Dark Sarcasm

Fenris -- My, my... you are a testy little bugger! -- Loabal Domination

Hustlers Ambition -- And here you are, back again.  That was well fought, and no more
than I deserved for letting my mind wander off during the fight. -- Falrondial Voth

Hype Machine -- You'd think I'd know better by now, not to believe a single word you
said.  Words like, "This won't hurt," and, "I'll hit you lightly, just for show, and
then you can do the same to me."  Those kind of words.  Ouch. -- Velovorinsal Nors

The arenamaster should have let me kill that Convicted Assassin!  He told me at the
beginning of the fight that he had been sent by the King of Kekoral back home, and
that he was going to kill me using the arena as his cover.  A gross violation of...
ah, something or other.  Truly!  I should have and would have killed him. --

Gnocchi -- Tasty.  I liked that sauce, but... more garlic.  Maybe a dash of fresh
basil, as well. -- Darirokan Kor
