                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Backhanded to the last, aren't you, Incisor?  Still, I'll take the title however
I get it, and hang onto it as best I can.

                                      Blu Jon

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, BLUE MOON, since DARK WARDS 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see CECIL BB win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, CECIL BB beat BLUJACK and BLUJACK lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Looks like ZUKAL has some guts at least, BLU JON the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  BRUJAH challenged ZUKAL's Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BRUJAH takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Blue Boar Inn, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZUKAL's 
trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  BLUE MOON was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DARK WARDS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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 ZUKAL.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Gangrel -- Oh, it's you again. -- Bluette, not having a good day (the horse wouldn't
start)
P.S.  (among other things)

Newlin -- What did you want to go do that for?  Just because your team name is
"Crimson Death" doesn't mean you have to die one! -- Bleu Bonet, not a killer by
intention
P.S.  I knew a guy once who tended to parry with his face.  It didn't do him much
good, either.

Well, um, I, ah, felt sorry for the Persistent Beggar? -- Moravia Mauve

I can tell that I'm going to have to talk to Jorja.  She enrolls me, hands me a name,
and then she's off, and I don't know whether I'm supposed to be some kind of cheese,
or a pirate!  No character notes, no cue cards, no script at all!  How am I supposed
to come into this cold and get any sort of feeling for my character? -- Blujack

Dark Wards -- Of course we missed you!  Unless we used bows and arrows, we had no
CHOICE to miss you, because you didn't come within arm's length. -- Blue Moon

Nosferatu -- Did you have to take so LONG about it?  I had things to do. -- Hollin,
Mercenary of long standing (too long, my feet hurt)

Debarrows -- I hope you taught that oaf something.  Training up a matched squad of
Guards is hard enough on a GOOD day. -- Del'Borasan, trainer of Guards
P.S.  If Zrof hadn't agreed to let me run them through the arena for seasoning, well,
they'd be mightily unseasoned.

Glindora -- That was. -- Osksi Noble Mark 11, patent pending

Moravia Mauve -- You're a pussycat, ma'am, and we thank you for the food baskets. --
Padrian, Speaker for the Beggars' Guild

Blujack -- That was unnecessary roughness.  Thieves don't grow on trees, you know. --
Taralbos, Senior Thief
