                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha ha ha HA!

                                        Hoffa

P.S.  That was not a copy of my previous column.  That was a new laugh.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KALTOS games.  NORLE PARTH caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HOFFA and was awarded 17 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KHALHUMS DWARF put down 
CHESTER EGG, causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of INGOLD KERR, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KALTOS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in KALTOS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Well, the dog ate our homework.  Uh...the neighbor's dog.  We have a cat.  He might
have used our homework for some other purpose, I suppose.  Or the carrier is reading
it.  Anyway, the turns are not present, so we're doing our personals based on the e-
newsletter. -- The Middle Way 5
P.S.  Next time, we're going to take the high road and AVOID the dog.

Jiles -- There's a verb "to heart"?  I never knew! -- Fergus Hill, humbled before
these new depths to which the English language can sink

Ah, the Venomous Concubine!  She never gives her name, probably has a Secret
Identity, but how many redheaded concubines can there be on an island this size?  I
think we should TRACK HER DOWN and make her brush her teeth. -- Ingold Kerr

Hoffa the Duel2Dude -- I think you're a pig. -- Chester Egg
P.S.  And you would probably eat and LIKE those disgusting Heart Balls of Fergus's.
(shudder)

What I want to know is how Ingold thinks WE can compel the Venomous Concubine to do
anything she doesn't want to?  She beat us both, after all.  That's got to be
significant. -- Norle Parth who has no ambitions to go teaching somebody with a
poisonous bite how to handle basic dental hygiene

Hoffa 4622, not the one who was Duel2Dude and is probably laughing at us again, the
other one -- You're no better than your teammate is. -- Gloria Imbro

Shanno?  Who is this Brutal Shanno, and why did I have to fight him, her, or it?  I
didn't want to!  I wanted to stay home and eat liver and onions with garlic toast! --
Fergus Hill
P.S.  And ice cream for desert.

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
