                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is my season to rule.  December, January, February, I hold the balance all
across the land.  Beware!  Dress warmly!

                                      Norther

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see VASQUEZ win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SHORT SKIRT beat 
BITTERMAN and BITTERMAN lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as FREE WHEEL takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else 
do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  MABUSHI 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, BLUESTOCKING of BLUE MOON has added the final loss to hers 16-15-0.  Tee hee!  
Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
