                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Jorja says I'm committing the cardinal sin of Over-Confidence, but I kid you
not, the Kung-Fu Master was pathetic.  He was easy.

                                    Blhu Murther

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZUKAL.  MVP award for SAFFIRA?  BLUE 
MOON's proud of her after beating HEMPEN JIG and getting 11 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  HEMPEN JIG got smashed by SAFFIRA, and lost 11 points!  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to M. CHARDINEE, BUT BLHU MURTHER is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZUKAL ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  It was kind of sad, seeing old CYANITA stumbling around the 
arena, before SEA LEGS finished her off.  Oh well!  Hey you guys, don't you think 
your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Through the Window -- Oh, yeah, this is good.  No, it IS.  Think about it:  it means
you don't have to go outside on a cold snowy or rainy day and dig around in the
bushes for the paper.  Is this a deal, or what? -- Bombarzol

Hempen Jig -- Don't your feet get tired? -- Moravia Mauve

Filthy Tom -- Well, listen, it wasn't personal, but something on the back of your
neck was moving, and I thought it was some kind of vermit, so I whacked it.  Well,
okay, not the back of your neck, that's a metaphor because this is a family
newsletter, though I shudder to think of what kind of family reads this newsletter.
Still, if I just could've got the rat or whatever, probably whatever and
unmentionable at that, I wouldn't have minded if YOU lived. -- Saffira
P.S.  Of course, if you BATHED sometimes, you wouldn't have had those THINGS crawling
around on you.

Sea Legs -- Ah, I understand fishnet stockings now. -- Cyanita

M. Viransvurj Chardinee -- What business is it of yours to feel "quite embarrassed"
for me?  Back off, bub. -- Moravia Mauve
