                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Not time for termination, Morgue.  There's still deeds to be done, sights to be
seen, women to be appreciated, great meals to be eaten, you get my drift?  Let's do
that before we think about ending it all.

                                      Stonebow

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MALCORN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SOURWOOD win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, POT OF GOLD beat 
TERRASQUE and TERRASQUE lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like MALCORN 
has some guts at least, STONEBOW the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged 
warrior.  AVERY challenged MALCORN's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as AVERY takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
MALCORN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  DARK CREATION the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was TERMINUS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     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 MALCORN to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of MALCORN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Terrasque -- Olaf was right, that was a dirty challenge.  Never fought a Parry Strike
and thought it might have netted me better skills.  Worked out for you, though, in
the skill department.  Either I'm the best teacher of all time or you're a genius. --
Avery

Qreated -- After eight minutes of getting batted around the sands, I think you got
the better end of the fight. -- Quasil

Stonebow -- I thought Quasil and Avery were exaggerating about how hard you hit.
Apparently not.  Well fought. -- Morgue

Venomous Concubine -- Guess you didn't appreciate all that talk by Miyamoto. --
Morgue

Sourwood -- I'm getting good at these narrow wins. -- Varick

Swordmage -- Too much mage, not enough sword. -- Pot of Gold

Honeysuckle -- Looks like I'm the green one this fight! -- Steve

Silver Ghost -- How can I fight a ghost in the dark?!? -- In the Dark

esreveR -- Maybe if you didn't put your helm on as backwards as your name you'd last
longer. -- Jim

     Yeah, but then he'd see you coming.  He might not have wanted that.

Bobcat -- I can see why you're the lowest Boy Scout rank. -- Skittles

Varick -- Hmm, getting uppity, aren't you?  I guess I'll have to try harder. --
Sourwood

Steve -- The deal with rainbows, and I suppose with being connected to them, is that
they're dependent on sun angles.  That can be a handicap. -- Honeysuckle

In the Dark -- Been there, didn't care for it. -- Silver Ghost

Skittles -- There should be beer around here, too!  Where's the beer? -- Bobcat

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Readers of Malcorn -- I've been sick, and the story has suffered for it.  What would
you prefer, that I synopsize to remind us where we were and then go on, or just drop
the whole storyline as being doomed? -- the Scribe
