                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Dear Saltilla is, of course, quite wrong about elves, but she's correct about
Kung-Fu.  The way these "masters" practice it is an offense all by itself.

                                   Little Venus

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
BONSUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SONYA win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BARILOCHE 
beat HARPOON and HARPOON lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, BONSUR may be getting bland, as LITTLE VENUS stays top dog in 
the city.  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.  
BONSUR, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  CHURCH LADIES the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like SENTINELS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, HARPOON was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to SCRAMBLER of 
REAVERS for challenging up by 19 to SUZIE.  SCRAMBLER lost to get 24 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.  It's about time L'DY DEATHSTRIKE got beat for picking 
on warriors like CAJETAN.  Bravo, SENTINELS.  See you at The Welcome Wench.  Honor is 
like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of BONSUR.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Barrio -- We hardly knew you!  The oddly named "O" warriors would be welcome to stick
around for a while, instead of simply depriving us of our High Elves and then
disappearing. -- Sentinels

     True, those High Elves are hard to recruit. -- Arenamster Ilhume'

L'dy Deathstrike -- You killed Pelargir!  Slasher that are +4 decise don't come along
every day, so he will be missed.  Still, since it was his own challenge there is only
so much he/we can complain about.  A bloodfeud will ensue as we attempt to figure out
the point of the apostrophe in your name.  You're only eliminating one letter (we
think) so what's the point? -- S'ntinels

Harpoon -- What?!  I lost that?  That is going to have to be fixed! -- Blago the
Frustrated

Scalp-Hunter -- I warned you not to mess with my scalp.  And you just had to try it
again.  Was that one also, "damn close"?  I kinda like the long fights. -- Barlioche

Suzie -- Sometimes you just run out of gas.  It makes my job much easier. -- Cajetan

Sarah Sundance -- You're faster than you look, girl!  Is it all the practice you get
running after ingredients? -- Etugan Khan

Drat.  But at least they didn't make the Venomous Gigolo (a total cad, I assure you!)
duelmaster. -- Saltilla
P.S.  Remind me never to believe a smarmy elf with charm and a cheesy mustache again.

M. Chardinee offered me rubies if I'd throw the fight to him.  Odd, I never thought
he cared that much.  I don't know if they were real rubies, either, because I started
by throwing the edge of my blade to him... and finished with that, too.  Ah, well. --
Palmetta Patty

Scrambler -- As some of my teammates have said to some of their opponents, if not
here then SOMEWHERE in Alastari, don't parry with your face.  I wasn't aiming at it,
and I don't know how ELSE it could have gotten in front of my sword. -- Queenie

Etugen Khan -- But!  The new batch of smash is due to be decanted tonight.  I think
you should take the initiative and show up early. -- Sarah Sundance

Sentinels -- Oh, absolutely!  Every barrel and bucket must be emptied tonight!  Or
was that last night?  Whenever, all must go!  With buffalo wings on the side
(expensive, because the winged buffalo are rare, but I like 'em, and it's *my*
party), and all sorts of other good stuff. -- Palmetta Patty

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
