                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Halberd, low/very low, lunge and response?  Are they insane?  Do they think *I*
am insane?  A halberd is what you use to knock birds' nests out of the eaves.  Prune
the highest branches of your trees.  Stuff like that.  Of course, if I was carrying
one of those things, I'd *have* to move slowly, they're so darned heavy.  I'm fairly
sure that someone in the Commission office hates me.

                                    Billy Jack

P.S.  I picked up *three* ratings in that fight, which probably explains my
graduation.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, WILLAF?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see DEE NILE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DEE NILE beat 
LONELY HANDMEDOWNS and LONELY HANDMEDOWNS lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Looks like WILLAF has some guts at least, BILLY JACK the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  GOLD LOCKET challenged WILLAF's Duelmaster for a shot at 
the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, WILLAF may be getting bland, as 
BILLY JACK stays top dog in the city.  The Welcome Wench, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From WILLAF's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  PUNNY AMINALS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
it looks like GOLDEN GLADIATORS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of 
would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on 
this one, but TRICILLIAD has challenged up by 31 in an attempt against JOHN DERE.  
And The Welcome Wench has banned JOHN DERE from service until next turn for losing to 
TRICILLIAD and giving him 27 points in the process!  Ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for WILLAF's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
