                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     House Cannith, Floyd, and ghost of Irontower:  I don't know what's come over me
lately.  Jorja doesn't know, either.  My strategy has not been changed, still
attacking the arms with a kill-desire of five.  Could it be your lack of armor?
     And don't wear your heart on your sleeve.

                                      Wolfdog

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DULLENS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see FLOYD CASTAWAY win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
THAT I DO SIR beat GRAY BEAR and GRAY BEAR lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, DULLENS may be getting bland, as WOLFDOG stays 
top dog in the city.  The Sleepy Smithy, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DULLENS' trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     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.  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 The Sleepy 
Smithy!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of DULLENS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Wolfdog and Jorja -- In my 25+ years playing Duel2 I have never seen one warrior
single handily shut down an arena like you have.  Enjoy the emptiness. -- Ghost of
Irontower and Floyd

Jorja -- Ignore Floyd!!  He is just a bitter old manager...  I am the one who died
and I don't hold it against you... these things happen.  I will convince Floyd to put
another team here. -- Ghost of Irontower

     Generously spoken.

That was incredibly embarrassing. -- Ghost of Bearfoot

Livewire -- I'm shocked, just shocked, at the outcome of that fight. -- Blackbuck

That was not as embarrassing as Bearfoot's loss.  I suppose that's something. -- Gray
Bear

Impersonators!  Liars at heart, every one. -- Grim Laughter
