                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am one lucky lady.  Ace sits out and I beat the veteran Dora Bell to find
myself the top dog, no pun intended.  What more could I ask for?
     Well, I could use an orange.

Scurvy Lady

                                      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 DIAMOND QUEEN win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
ASPASIA beat GIVORSA JIMH and GIVORSA JIMH lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as SCURVY LADY 
stays top dog in the city.  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.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Guillotine -- Excellent!  I have a use for a blade of your quality: chopping pecans
and walnuts very fine.  There are going to be some good cookies when it's all ready
to come together, but I need the nuts chopped. -- Lusintilla Oban

Club Trey -- People have suggested that we make sandwiches, and I suppose we *could*,
but they'd be a deviation from our signature line of sweet stuff.  Still, I suppose I
could just think about it for a while and see what I come up with.  Walnuts and cream
cheese, perhaps?  Let me mull on this... over mulled cider. -- Donnamira

Diamond Queen -- Biscochis!  I've been missing those, and you remind me that... I
could do it myself! -- Givorsa Jimh
P.S.  They're diamond-shaped, at least the classics are.
P.P.S.  But they're probably spelled differently.

Scurvy Lady -- Just for you, lime drops.  They'll fix you up fast. -- Dora Bell

Archytas -- I get a confusing image from you, don't know what you like or want or
need.  So maybe... hmm, baklava? -- Gaylene Vollas

One Armed Bandit -- Oh, I *did*!  And made him a special batch of bridge cookies, as
well. -- Dora Bell
