                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, la la!  Sea Legs this time, and what legs they are!  The curves, the sway,
the fishnet stockings....  Hard not to drool.

                                     Blhu Murther

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZUKAL.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  HOT STUFF had cause to 
celebrate, after LIP GLOSS got 18 points by beating KINGFISHER.  Win some, lose some. 
Speaking of which, LIP GLOSS was winsome, after beating KINGFISHER and seeing her 
lose 15 points.  Now I can't insult SEA LEGS, as she has gloriously dueled to the 
top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, KINGFISHER is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in ZUKAL would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUKAL is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUKAL 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Well, you'll hear some members of my team speak well of Karolvingar the Roving Demon,
but not me!  If he wants me to speak well of him, he can darned well lose the fight
first. -- Saffira

The Venomous Concubine is a totally shocking person.  I couldn't even look at her--
those CLOTHES!  Shameless. -- Moravia Mauve

Userous Merchants are a dime a dozen, but they do charge you fifty percent interest
on the price. -- Kingfisher
P.S.  So they need to be beaten up regularly.

The Ambitous Guard du Jour was pathetic, but then, they only send us the pathetic
ones, don't they? -- Bisbee Blue
