                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Don't get any ideas, you worthless arena warrior slaves.  Yes, it is unusual and
maybe unheard of to have a Dark Wards Duelmaster column.  But I have some things to
say, and you can just sit there on your pansy-axx donkey-dung couches and listen.
Get it?
     This is my 15th title.  You have not been kowtowing sufficiently to suit my
expectations.  Suck it up and kiss my ring or rump, you diddly-doo-dahs.  You will
never see another as great as me.  Start now.
     Clean up the arena, Commission flunkies!  Do it now.  Warriors like 7-45 Through
The Window should be excommunicated.  Probably managed by either Assur or that
Consortium, kings of the scuzzbums.  In fact, get rid of the warriors and the
managers.  Clean this place up now!
     And lastly, stay away from me.  I don't want to fight second-class tiddly-wink
scrunchers, and I can't stand the smell of your un-deodorized armpits.  Go take a
bath in cow urine and roll in horse dung; it just might help.
          Ventriie

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZUKAL this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
BLUE MOON is pushed out of top team by DARK WARDS, who came from 2nd with a 4-0-0 
this turn.  And let's see, BICYCLE RACE fought BLUE STREAK and gained 19 points and 
contributed to QUEEN's 1-1-0.  BLUE FUNK has lost to TRAKE DARROWS, falling 9 points, 
while helping make BLUE MOON a 0-5-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between 
BLAMMO and our Duelmaster VENTRIIE, making a challenge.  Defending his title for 
another turn, VENTRIIE kept BLUE MOON's warrior, BLAMMO, from claiming the throne.  
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at The Blue Boar Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  CRIMSON DEATH has cause to stand tall, as they were ZUKAL's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who 
avoided CRIMSON DEATH stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was DARK WARDS.  Anyone 
surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that BLUE STREAK from BLUE MOON was 
ZUKAL's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, ZUKAL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUKAL and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--
