                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     We can't get you to accept an invitation, Ventriie?  Should we have been issuing
invitations?  I don't think hosting parties is in our budget.

                                  Jed Tarran Dapp

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUKAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SERPENTS HOLD 3, since 
DARK WARDS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps 
up, QUEEN, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in the 
rankings?  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see THE GREY GHOST win a fight 
and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KATANA beat BLAMMO and BLAMMO lost 10 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like ZUKAL has some guts at least, JED 
TARRAN DAPP the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  VENTRIIE 
challenged ZUKAL's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as VENTRIIE 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.  ZUKAL, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SERPENTS HOLD 3 the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like DARK WARDS avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  I guess I 
can give a little credit to BLACK PRIEST of DARK WARDS for challenging up by 24 to 
FANG.  BLACK PRIEST won to get 44 points of recognition.  And we have LUCIFER in a 
challenge, going down 8 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought LUCIFER showed 
great skill and promise when he beat CLARISSA TEAL.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUKAL to get a drink than The Blue Boar Inn! 
Any suggestions?  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
