                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     As you know, Shy Guy is a shy guy.  I tried hard.  I did.  But I couldn't get
him to write another DM Column.  Perhaps the best thing would be for someone to beat
him and take him out of his misery?  As a manager, I hesitate to say that, but the
poor guy is in real pain.
     Will someone help him out?
              Luigi, Manager Paper Marios

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to PAPER MARIO, as they are pushed from the coveted top 
team spot by the THE MIDDLE WAY 5 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for FELISSA HURM, 
who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing KELLY like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  JAMMY 
LARKE lost to TUBBA BLUBBA and drops 10 points.  It's a proud day for the WIZARD'S 
WRATH stable, as their warrior, HALIBUTT, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple 
a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad CASSEY'S CREW?  Big bad CASSEY'S CREW.  Big bad CASSEY'S CREW.  KALTOS' 
afraid of the big bad CASSEY'S CREW.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  CASSEY'S CREW + Weapons That go Boom = PAPER MARIO + Avoid City. 
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, JAMMY LARKE would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Felissa -- Thank you for the positive comments about the upcoming Face.  I hope I do
OK, but I am not so sure.  But your support helped.  It is only a week away now.  I
look forward to the warmth, the sunshine, the sands, the pretty girls, ..... (Uh,
don't tell Luigi, I said that.) -- Goombario

Irvina -- I AM a tall dwarf and I still think you have a pretty name.  I heard girls
like tall males. -- Star Kik

Jammy Larke -- Watching me eat makes EVERYONE want to barf.  It's a talent I have. --
Tubba Blubba

Halibutt -- I really am not sure how I did that.  You having all that experience and
all, and you being able to talk to people, you know? -- Shy Guy

Katirona -- Just because you don't like dancing with me is no reason to beat up on
me!  Gee! --     Tiny Toes

Felissa -- That was fun.  Now let's go eat! -- Tubba Blubba

Kadaysa -- You have such a pretty name.  Somehow I made myself do that, but I sure am
sorry. -- Star Kik

Good job, Paper Marios.  Good job. -- Luigi

Tiny Toes -- Good thing you forgot the steel-tipped shoes, isn't it?  I bet they're
uncomfortable after a while, inflexible and hard to walk in. -- Katirona Murh

Kelly -- I like a woman who holds her own.  Just don't try to hold mine, okay? --
Jammy Larke

Tubba Blubba -- Rather unpleasant, though I suppose you could do well at sumo
wrestling. -- Felissa Hurm

The Userous Merchant?  Bah.  Humbug. -- Pendru Rost

Quilyan -- Darned wizard.  What do you have to be wrathy about? -- Irvina Korl

Shy Guy -- The ultimate inducement. -- M. Tolovi Chardinee
