                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, gods, will the humiliation never end?  Now I'm *holding* the title by losing
to standbys.  This is even worse than... than just about anything I can think of. 
True, it was a Venomous Concubine (using the nom de guerre of Angry Rosita, but
still, once a Venomous Concubine, always one), and everyone admits they can be tough.
But, honestly, if I can't defeat these guys, why isn't someone else up here being
duelmaster?  I'm a lot better at making fudge.

                                      Dora Bell

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RIZTAB?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CLUB TREY win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CLUB TREY beat 
TOM B STONE and TOM B STONE lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like 
RIZTAB has some guts at least, DORA BELL the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  ACE challenged RIZTAB's Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as ACE takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From RIZTAB's trash 
dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  SEA DOGS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it 
looks like BLADES OF TERROR avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  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!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Barbarian of Superior Forces 22T -- I don't mean to be rude, but your record is
pretty awful. -- One Armed Bandit

Club Trey -- How fortuitous!  I thought I was destined for a stand-in, but then you
and your two teammates joined the Initiates just in time.-- Salvage

     Salvaged the experience for you, did they?

Guillotine -- It seems unlikely you're a sign of the return of Andarus, so who's your
manager these days?  I'll bake him a cream puff.  Or should that be a creme puff?
How about a puff pastry with good custard in it? -- Givorsa Jimh

Tackle Box -- You want me to... tackle a box?  How odd.  I was not under the
impression that we at Sweet Magic paid that much attention to packaging, so long as
it was clean and didn't detract from the stuff inside.  Paper packets, mostly, waxed
paper, you know.  Sometimes glass jars.  Boxes would be... new.  Let me think about
this. -- Lusintilla Oban

Hippasus -- I dreamed about you, which is a relief, because I thought I was dreaming
about someone calling me a hippopotamus, and I am *not* anything like that.  I'm
just... well rounded. -- Gaylene Vollas

Rusty Anchor -- Should I go to the Infirmary for a tetnus shot? -- Donnamira

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.

Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
