                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My teammate Yarek may complain about his loss--in fact, I'm sure he will
complain about it--but I found Hamir of Mazgourrah, the Master of Kung-Fu, to be a
complete gentleman despite his style advantage.

                                     Ursila Vine

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ALJAFIR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, INHUMANS, 
but THE GENERALS was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for THEODOSIUS?  FIELDS 
OF ELYSIUM's proud of him after beating YAREK ZURN and getting 21 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  SALARA LORMIN's match with CONVICTED ASSASSIN cost her a loss of 
15 points!  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, 
and URSILA VINE has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  ZALMAN ARVO of MIDDLE WAY 
takes URSILA VINE's place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place of URSILA 
VINE?  Oh, all right.) Who was the wiseguy that said ALJAFIR's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Vile Vizier?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ALJAFIR ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ALJAFIR is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Shagrath, Convicted Assassin -- Why do you let them call you that, as though it was a
bad thing, when you make it clear at the same time that you are proud of your skills?
Maybe you should be called the Confirmed Assassin, or the Admitted Assassin? --
Salara Lormin

Hamir of Mazgourrah, master of unarmed combat -- Did someone forget to tell you that
as a standby, you're supposed to LOSE the fight? -- Yarek Zurn

I wish someone had warned me that M. Chardinee had been working on his endurance. --
Grishort Hurm

And a Veteran Mercenary to round out the day.  I like it. -- Zalman Arvo
