                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Good evening Dullens!!

     I'm not quite sure what to say...I'm tied for fewest wins on my team, and I'm
tied for most losses, yet I am the duel master.  Not sure if it's fair or not, but I
do know that I like it.  You see...our guild made a pact the eve of the first turn
that the first one of us that became DM would not have to do their share of the
household duties for two full arena cycles.  My fellow warrior TIDS (That, I Do Sir)
was certain it was going to be him, and he had already given us a list as to who was
to do what when he became duel master.  After we got back to the guild house when the
fights were over, I pulled out my list, crumpled it up, and jammed it in his mouth.
Almost lost a finger for that one.  He got over it though, while he cleaned Grim's
blood off of my tunic.  That shot to the throat went right under your helm...well
placed if I do say.
     Speaking of shots to the throat...Blackbuck, I need to address your comment in
the PAs last turn.  I don't consider myself nasty, though I'm sure TIDS would agree
with you on that right now.  Certainly you can't blame me...you are a whole foot
taller than me!  Plus you had a lot of FE on me.  The good news is that I hate death.
Don't wanna cause it...don't want anyone to cause mine.  I'm a medicine man by trade.
I know where to hit, and where not to!  Our arena here is small enough without us
dispatching each other so let's all try to keep it that way.
     I hope you all have a great night of celebration here...since there are so few
of us there is more to drink!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in DULLENS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for BLACKBUCK?  CARDOW 
HUNTERS' proud of him after beating FLOYDRIFFIC and getting 12 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  FLOYDRIFFIC got smashed by BLACKBUCK, and lost 9 points!  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KOO KOO KUNG FOO, BUT FLOYD CASTAWAY is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Who was the wiseguy that said 
DULLENS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Yellow Dog Tavern?  Don't look at 
me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

I won't tell you what I thought of Toodles Enslaved.  They wouldn't print it.  But
he's much worse, morally, than the stupid Lost Potato Farmer. -- Wolfdog

Floyd Castaway -- Oh, well, at least you took the title on a win.  That's the right
way to do it. -- Grim Laughter

That I Do Sir -- And you did.  Thoroughly. -- gray Bear

Floydriffic -- What *I* don't believe is that the crowd was so damned pleased by your
victory.  Or maybe it was by my spirited defense?  Yeah, that must've been it. --

I hear tell the Cranky Old Coot is the father, or maybe even the grandfather, of the
