                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's no wonder I defeated you, Beakster, and I'm not talking about me being so
enormously superior--I don't know if I am or not.  But unless you have a LOT of
hidden tourney fights, I have so much more experience than you do that it isn't
funny.  I'm not sure what put me over the line here, probably the political points.
I'll take it.  The Commission flunky has offered me a really fine stallion and three
quite decent mares "in lieu of lands," and I'm going to take THAT, too.  Retire to
horse-breeding.  Sounds good.

                                    Blackbuck

                                      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 PANCHO SPORTER win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
PANCHO SPORTER beat MIST ON GRASS and MIST ON GRASS lost 8 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DULLENS may be getting bland, as 
BLACKBUCK 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.  GRIM LAUGHTER was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the DULLENS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Koo Koo Kung Foo is so... CUTE that she's embarrassing. -- Gray Bear the Embarrassed

I'm getting a handle on this "ghost" business. -- Grim Laughter

The Librarian -- I like an educated woman, but that's no reason to let her hit me! --
Goldeneye
P.S.  Besides, you needed a loss.  Every gladiator should have one.

Pancho Sporter -- Well, of COURSE you lost.  Look at my experience edge!  Not to
mention that once the grass gets wet, as with a mist, you know, it's desperately
slippery and QUITE unsuited for sports. -- Mist on Grass
