                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And Euripedes makes his try, but really, I'm not going to lose to a mere
playwrite!

                                    Kissa Belle

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RIZTAB brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see JOY OF LOSING win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
JOY OF LOSING beat DORA BELL and DORA BELL lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
The Duelmaster's Dead!  Long live the Duelmaster!  Ha!  SOPHOCLES has killed KISSA 
BELLE in the Title bout, and this bout ain't over yet!  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
RIZTAB, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SEA DOGS the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like WHO DA MAN? avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was 
FENNELINDA of SWEET MAGIC this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have a 
belly laugh.  Heh heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the RIZTAB arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Hi,
     Only 3 Dreamers fighting over the upcoming holiday.  The big guys are going to
try and look scary (carry big weapons, wear lots of armor) in honor of the
festivities.  The other 2 are will be busy outside the arena preparing tricks, so I'd
double check your sheathed back-up weapons, just to be sure they aren't styrofoam
copies.  ;)
     Happy Halloween all & good luck in the tourney!
          Sleepy

     And hi to you, and good luck with the tourney.

Yoda Man -- EXCUSE me?  I am certainly NOT a man, much less THE man.  Take that back!
-- Dora Bell

Joy of Losing -- We're not seeming to get your message.  Maybe you should take it
elsewhere. -- Donnamira

Hezash the Mouth, eh.  Well named.  It's astonishing what that man can stuff in
without pausing for breath. -- Fennelinda

Deuce -- Weird, for a while there I thought I was seeing two of you on the sands. --
