                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Adelita, at least I'm not Goldeneye.  But I do seem to have an experience
edge on you, even if you have hidden tourney fights.  Are we ever going to find OUT
about the last two tourneys, by the way?  Who won, who lost, all that kind of thing?
It's only an academic curiosity at our place, but still, we do wonder.
     Anyway, good fight.

                                    Gray Bear

                                      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 DDB CLONE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DDB CLONE beat 
JA-HEE and JA-HEE lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as SHOCK TOP 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, DULLENS?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, SHOCK TOP was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DULLENS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Hello to Ja-Hee.  This isn't a bad place, but bring a book or something.  Things can
be slow and quiet here. -- the Cardow Hunters
