                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I like being duelmaster, and no Venomous Concubine is going to stop me.
Besides, she's an elf.

                                     Blhu Murther

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZUKAL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with EIGHTH MATE?  She actually 
beat BLUE MOON's BISBEE BLUE, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  
KHALHUMS DWARF was reminded on the sands why BLHU MURTHER is Duelmaster.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of ZUKAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some advice: 
study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ZUKAL is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Blue Moon -- I was going to give you guys a break, take a few turns off, compete in a
tournament.  However, my manager's orders got delayed by some foul weather.  Perhaps
it was those freak fall snowstorms.  Now you are stuck with me. -- Eighth Mate

Coal Backer -- There was no need for you to THROW the coal at me! -- Saffira

I could really find it in myself to dislike the Khalhums Dwarf. -- Kingfisher
P.S.  "Just doing his job," phaugh!

Eighth Mate -- I don't think I can count that high. -- Bisbee Blue

The Embezzling Scribe is amazingly uneducated.  I could do a better job of embezzling
than he even dreams of. -- Bluestocking
