                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Welcome to the pretenders Duelmaster Column of Zuwayza.  For an arena to allow
me to sit on the throne so young is wrong, just wrong.  But apparently, I am good
enough to beat Model Railroader, so that puts me on top.
     I would like to invite everyone to a party at our place to celebrate this event.
Milk and cookies for everyone.  We need to drink the milk fast, before it spoils.  It
seems to get left out a lot at our house.
     I also welcome the Street Walkers, if a welcome it can be called, to Zuwayza.
There are certainly worse towns to be in.  We do have personal ads and duelmaster
columns.
     My immortality countdown: 8 wins, 13 fights, and 14 pps.  Wouldn't that be silly
if the fights were the last thing I need...

-- Milk is Out

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZUWAYZA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, MINI ME fought MODEL RAILROADER and 
gained 25 points and contributed to CUNNING RUNTS' 4-0-1.  AURELIUS has lost to DR. 
RUTH, falling 69 points, while helping make IDES OF MARCH a 1-3-0 turn.  We should 
ask ERIC CARTMAN about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Drunken Ox until they win.  
Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  STREET WALKERS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ZUWAYZA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided STREET WALKERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was BASH BRO HOUSEMATE.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
MONOPOLY's warrior THE BOOT.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, DID NOT FLUSH from BASH BRO HOUSEMATE challenged up 
18 points to fight THE ENQUIRER from the THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS stable.  DID NOT FLUSH 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he defeated THE ENQUIRER and ended up with 
55 recognition points.  AUNT FLO of STREET WALKERS had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 10 points in a challenge which she killed.  I thought AUNT FLO 
showed great skill and promise when she killed LUXURY TAX.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  I guess it was coming sooner or later, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS has lost MODEL 
RAILROADER, and ZUWAYZA is bound to miss him.  For a little while, at least.  Is it 
really true that ZUWAYZA has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought 
I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Model Railroader -- And apparently, that Concubine has invited others to join in this
red light district.  I notified the authorities and got the standard run around.
Apparently, the right people have been paid to look the other way. -- Assur

     It is our duty to look ALL ways.  We can't stand around staring at red lights
      all the time.  Think what people would say! -- The Right People

The Enquirer -- Truly your pages are filled with wisdom and I am now as much a fan as
the milk spoiler.  I think we're going to put issues of you in every room.  Do you
want to become our housemate? -- Did Not Flush

Jorja -- When I stop paying, the publishers will stop sending me magazines. -- Milk
is Out

Milk Is Out -- Yes, I know, a constant problem requiring trips (by train, for choice)
to replenish it.  I note with pleasure that it is you who will have to do the
"executive" thing, and I can get on with work on the railroad.  A railroader's work
is never done, you know. -- Model Railroader

Did Not Flush -- No!  I refuse to feature that as a title on the cover.  Maybe a
short note on one of the back pages.  I have *some* pride and self respect, you know!
-- The Enquirer

The Enquirer has pride and self respect!  Believe it if you can!  Article on... wait,
I can't find the article in here....

Unless the Veteran Mercenary is prepared to beat his sword into a plowshare, he'd
better look elsewhere for a "day job." -- Farm Weekly

Free Parking -- Everybody says that, but they just mean they can dump their
schoolbooks on my clean kitchen table, and I won't have it!  NO MORE! -- Cooking Lite

Luxury Tax -- Ah, you city people, you think biodiversity is a luxury?  You're wrong,
completely wrong, and the truth will come home to bite you one of these days. --
Desert Plants

Assur -- I'm not in this business to do my pudly gladiators favors! -- Jorja
