                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Good gods, nobody could expect me to defeat a demon!  I cede the column to him.

                                     Ultorino

     And I give my thanks to Ultorino, who has a heart in the right place.  (I know
because I checked.)  He was, in fact, an easy win for me, and I didn't even have to
use my special demonic powers.  Not that I would, I took gave an oath when Zrof One-
Eye offered me the job; well, I was desperate.  There are very few places, even in
Zukal, that will employ a demon, and the gate that would have taken me home was on
Barikala and is now beyond reach.  Perhaps I could get home by some alternate route,
Vashku of Tobir has been good enough to suggest a few, but I am not about to risk my
neck on some of THOSE planes, thank you very much!  What Vashku might do is his
business, but he's always been a big risk-taker.  Not me.  I like a quiet life,
just...with different scenery from time to time.

                                     Karolvingar,
                                          Demon at Large

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUKAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for RAGE OF ANGELS, whose 0-0-0 this turn 
dropped them by 4 into 6th.  Ha!  BLUE MOON turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 2nd place 
rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  
Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see INCISOR win a fight and gain 19 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DD beat BLUBELLE and BLUBELLE lost 8 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU 
MASTER, and ULTORINO has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With ULTORINO clearing 
the throne, FANGS of INCISOR takes a proud seat as ZUKAL's new Duelmaster, by virtue 
of recognition points.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ZUKAL?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  BLUE 
MOON, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care 
to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like FANGS avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUKAL's 
morgue.  More variety.  Ya gotta go sometime, and DARE's time was this time.  Hmmm, 
not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what?  me pity?).  I can't say as I'm proud to 
find out that FANGS' INCISOR has killed DARE from CRIMSON DEATH.  I can say I wish 
CRIMSON DEATH good luck in their bloodfeud.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ZUKAL arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ZUKAL.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Taranj -- Fratsfan Slave, I COMPLETELY agree with you!  May The Venomous Concubine
bite Incisor HARD! -- Toreador

Nosferatu -- Pardon me while I laugh, I know it's uncouth, but one of my teammates
just said that your name--  (dissolves into wild guffaws again)  No, I just can't say
it out loud!  But take the win, if you can live with that name, you deserve it. --
Blu Jon

Ventriiiiie -- At least yours isn't as funny as your teammate's, even though it does
sound like you're stuttering. -- Bluette

Ds216ttr2 -- You have me at a disadvantage, as the catalogs did not transfer from the
mechanically-minded universe on which they originated.  Annoying, because the parts
catalogs aren't the only ones that didn't transfer, and I'm having a TERRIBLE time
getting a decent hat. -- Blubelle

15250 -- With your height and sturdy build, you're well suited to bear the weight of
the world on your shoulders.  How about if you go do it?  Atlas needs a rest. -- Bleu
Bonet

Brujah -- Re your title defense, you call THAT a fight? -- Ultorino

Ventriiiie -- Except when Jorja smacks me for spitting at the table. -- Blu Jon

Taralbos, Senior Thief -- Gosh, I'm shaking in my shoes.  So take the shoes, because
they don't fit. -- Blubelle
