                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I curl my lip in scorn at Toodles Enslaved!  (That's his exclamation point, not
mine, you know.)  Bah, I say to him.  Humbug.  Other epithets as may be appropriate.

                                     Little Ox

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DULLENS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BISHOP win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MEGAMANAGER (NOT) 
beat WINDWALKER and WINDWALKER lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, DULLENS may be getting bland, as LITTLE OX 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  MOMMY DEAREST was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like 
SATAN'S KINGDOMS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if 
you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, RAMSHORN was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in DULLENS to get a drink than Arthur's Last 
Stand!  Any suggestions?  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

Ah.  The Ghost of Eldrad is tough.  Of course, it helps that it had no physical
substance for me to attack--until it attacked ME, then it was physical enough.  Ouch.
-- Windwalker

Hmm.  Megamanager (Not)--one of many.  Suffer. -- Darkwind

Hsst!  D'Artagnon wears pantyhose under his armor! -- Ramshorn

It amazes me that there are standbys in this arena which we haven't fought recently.
-- Jorja

Norman Bates -- I wondered where you picked up those skills. -- Firefly
