                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     We are surprised and disturbed to see the Dreamers inactive.  Sleepy, are you
ill?  Should we send you our very best sweets?
     Ten of Clubs?  Who would bring TEN clubs to a fight?

                                  Jaylene Mokhar

                                      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.  Later days, SWEET MAGIC, since 
DREAMERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  SEA DOGS turned 
their 3-1-0 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-1 is nice, but don't 
get cocky, DREAMERS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see MILES DAVIS win a fight and gain 24 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MILES DAVIS beat WHAT and WHAT lost 21 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BLACK HEART takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
RIZTAB?   
     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.  SWEET MAGIC the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like CARDS 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.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as 
the next guy, but hey CARDS, whyja send TEN OF CLUBS to the Dark Arena, look at his 
record, huh?  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  JOUELLA, a glorious 3-7-0 fighter, has 
passed away.  Gee, too bad SWEET MAGIC.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys 
and girls, WHEN of GUESSING GAME has added the final loss to its 2-6-0.  Tee hee!  
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!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of RIZTAB.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
