                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

It is good that I am Duelmaster, intead of Dio.  The throne was getting covered in
drool!

                           N.I.B.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KOLACT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, DEIMOS fought CAPTURED ORC and gained 11 points and 
contributed to THE MOONDOGS' 3-2-0.  REESE SILEEN has lost to IRON MAN, falling 2 
points, while helping make THE MOONDOGS a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, N.I.B. kept KOLACT's warrior, M. CHARDINEE, from claiming the throne.  
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at Don Corleone's until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that KOLACT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KOLACT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Reese Sileen -- Puff, puff, snort, snort, bad Reese! -- Warpig

Lunar Coyote -- I am Iron Man! -- Iron Man

Reese Sileen -- Nativity In Black, baby! -- N.I.B.

Iron Man -- Ack, I feel like I've run into a tree! -- Reese Sileen

Warpig -- I suppose I should take some small comfort in being such a good teacher,

but I really don't like pain.  Why couldn't we meet in some relaxed venue and I'll
just do a few demonstration moves, you can practice them on straw man, and then we
adjourn for a couple of beers? -- Lunar Coyote

A Cult Member?  Disgusting.  Frightened.  Pitiful.  BORING. -- Deimos

Huh, the Embezzling Scribe was probably just out for all the officially sanctioned
bedrest he could manage.  Wimp. -- Joleen Kruz

Why do they sling these useless Convicted Thieves into the arena?  Fine for THEM,
punishment without a charge on the government, but what about US?  A totally wasted
match. -- Orbin Paes

Dio -- You do realize that in a fair and just world, *I* would be the Duelmaster? --
Silver Lotus, maligned concubine

Ozzy -- I don't know a damned thing about fighting in the arena, you know?  Not my
style.  And they won't let me find a teacher.  It's a set-up deal, they just want to
see me suffer. -- Convicted Assassin (name withheld on request)

N.I.B. -- Well, that was a decent effort on your part.  Not great, but decent. --
Steel-hand Harnak, Dwarf of Khalhums and other places

Deimos -- My fellow cultists will be calling on you. -- Ranzargas, of the Cult of the
Black Chalise

Joleen Kruz -- I did not embezzle, dammit.  If you were engraving an account in
stone, would YOU go back and start over for every fiddling little mistake?  Of course
not!  Like it's going to matter in a hundred years?  Nobody listens to me! -- Gromet
Stonefinger, Engraving Scribe

Orbin Paes -- Couldn't I just write on some blackboard how I won't slip my hand into
someone else's pocket, even if my hand is COLD and I don't have a pocket of my own?
Cheese, talk about unfair! -- Danno, sort-of-Convicted Thief
