                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Again the Kung-Fu Master!  This guy does NOT give up.  Silly of him, some
battles are bound to be losses, but to keep coming back, with nothing more to bring
to it, is a poor plan.

                                   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 ZIGMUND ZAGG win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SCALP-HUNTR beat CHANCE and CHANCE lost 13 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.  
What's the big D?  REAVERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like SERPENTS HOLD avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  HARPOON was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad 
to see CAJETAN and SENTINELS at The Swinging Aardvark tonight celebrating their 
bloodfeud victory over WHIPLASH.  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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide
