                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So the Babes think we are silent.
     Sadly, I would have to agree with them.  It is not by choice, it is just that
Nomad has been so busy that he hasn't been able to watch over our writings as he
normally would do.  We have all tried to tell him that we can write our own stuff,
but for some reason he doesn't seem to trust us to do that.  I don't understand why.
He trusted us enough to leave us in charge of the guildhouse last week and nothing
happened.  Okay, so Balboa almost burned it down, but he didn't.  "Almost" is a
really important part of that sentence!  Who knew that a pig roast in the practice
yard was a bad idea?  And it didn't burn down!
     But I did get the Okay to write something this turn.  Skara Brae will be annoyed
when he hears; he was really frustrated about not getting to write anything when he
held the title.  Personally, I think the Boss was just so impressed by my victory
over Annalee that he couldn't say no.  What do you say, Annalee, shall we celebrate
with a little party at the Beach?  Nomad won't let us hold the party at the
Guildhouse.
Your Duelmaster and wordsmith,
Anzahanzek

                                      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.  Later days, BEACH BABES, since TOOL 
SHED took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see GREEN win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SPRAY CAN beat BALBOA and BALBOA lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, BONSUR may be getting bland, as ANZAHANZEK stays top 
dog in the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From BONSUR's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  BONSUR, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  TOOL SHED the most avoided team?  What 
insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SENTINELS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in BONSUR to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Surfer Girl -- This time I left the Surfers alone and went after the pirate.  It was
almost too easy.  I'd say you and I should stick to the beach sand and avoid fighting
on the arena sands, but given the size of the place these days that seems unlikely.
So I will just enjoy seeing you on whatever sands you are on. -- Mack

Mona -- Indeed I am here.  The variety was nice.  But really, all you really need is
one lovely young Babe and everything is good.  Bring that Babe to a good old
fashioned pig roast, add some smash and a good bucket brigade to control the flames,
and you are in for a good time! -- Balboa

M. Chardinee -- I thank you for the easy victory.  A standby or a Babe, those appear
to be my options. -- Ozawindib

Come on!  One more chance??!  Please??!  I know I can do it!  Wit is over rated!  So
is strength!  And speed!  And skills!  You won't regret it! -- Prospicio, the
desperate

Anzahanzek -- Just as well.  The cranberries are coming in, and I don't have time for
doing the Duelmaster stuff--the column, the public appearances, all that.  We're
working on a new batch of smash. -- Annalee

Annie Awl -- You just bored right in, didn't you? -- Dellea Dover

Woodchip Willa -- Woodchips would be BETTER.  Right now, everyone is burning leaves!
Talk about air pollution, argh. -- Bellamore

Balboa -- It would HELP if you guys made a comment every once and a while.  Do you
realize how HARD it is to come up with personal EVERY TURN?  Brain stress!  Burnout!
-- Mona from Maui

     Ask and it is given!

Dremmel -- Nothing like having the right tool for the job. -- Surfin' Sara
