                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I must say that leaving the milk out next to the throne worked perfectly this
time.  The Great Gazoo became so sick he wasn't able to show up last week and so I'm
back!  It may be for only a single turn, but that is fine with me!  And I've got a
plan for my next match with The Great Gazoo!
     Sure, using props as a distraction might be called underhanded and dirty, but in
my house, dirty is the least of our problems!  So I hope The Great Gazoo's stomach is
not fully recovered, because my best weapon against him is his memory of last week!

-- Milk is Out

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZUWAYZA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, DUALOPOLY fought 
NAPOLEON and gained 17 points and contributed to MONOPOLY's 4-1-0.  NAPOLEON has lost 
to DUALOPOLY, falling 13 points, while helping make CUNNING RUNTS a 1-4-0 turn.  This 
week's Duelmaster bout was between THE GREAT GAZOO and our Duelmaster MILK IS OUT, 
making a challenge.  And not without some honor, THE GREAT GAZOO now claims the title 
and throne of Duelmaster of ZUWAYZA.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Drunken Ox?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  CUNNING RUNTS 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 CUNNING RUNTS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BASH BRO HOUSEMATE. 
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that THE ENQUIRER from THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS was ZUWAYZA's most challenged warrior this turn.  I don't know about 
you, but DID NOT FLUSH challenging down 22 points to THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' THE 
ENQUIRER, is not really worthy of BASH BRO HOUSEMATE.  I thought challenges were for 
warriors, not cowards looking for easy wins.  DID NOT FLUSH beat THE ENQUIRER, is 
nothing sacred?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ZUWAYZA has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ZUWAYZA, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ZUWAYZA again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
