                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Weird, Theodosius.  Did you not get enough sleep last night, or something?  Why
should you lose?  I'm not complaining, but I'm totally surprised.

                                   Grishort Hurm

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ALJAFIR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, MIDDLE WAY had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by THE GENERALS!  Way to go THE 
GENERALS!  MVP award for BRADLEY?  THE GENERALS' proud of him after beating DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ALIDA BERN got 
smashed by BRUNHILDA, and lost 4 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the 
most popular guy in all ALJAFIR.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about 
proposals?) And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome THEODOSIUS.  Aren't FIELDS OF ELYSIUM proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the 
wiseguy that said ALJAFIR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Vile Vizier?  
Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  FIELDS OF ELYSIUM was ALJAFIR's 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
GLADIATORS?  FIELDS OF ELYSIUM, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Cheese louise!  I made a passing comment about the Venomous Concubine's hair, and she
CREAMED me.  Totally wiped the floor with me.  Just because I warned her, in the
friendliest possible way, that her dark roots were showing.... -- Yarek Zurn

Constantius -- I dunno about "nothing new under the sun," but there doesn't seem to
be much new under the clouds up here. -- Salara Lormin

Hannable -- I hope the real Hannibal comes along and takes your head off. -- Ghost of
Welsy Yoru

Edgar Allen Poe -- I read somewhere that you were thwarted in love and you blamed her
father.  Wrong.  First, fathers can only do so much, and second and most importantly,
you're such a gloomy fellow, you aren't much of a catch, you know. -- Alida Bern

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
