                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Bad match for you, Jocko, but at least you survived it.  There are people who
get into real trouble sassing off at me the way you did at the beginning.  Sure, I'm
a patient man, but that doesn't mean I'm forgiving!

                                      Velond Wok

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LYRATILAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MADTOWN, since THE 
MIDDLE WAY 4 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see QUIA SALIAN win a fight and gain 22 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AMBITIOUS GUARD beat DAVIA HANNAS and DAVIA HANNAS lost 12 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LYRATILAN 
may be getting bland, as VELOND WOK stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the LYRATILAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Bloodshed -- Stereotypical. -- Beltran Foss
P.S.  That's where you have a typ in each hand.

Tinkerbell -- At least the audience all clapped to keep you alive.  I didn't think
they would. -- Davia Hannas
P.S.  Some arenas are a lot more cynical than this one.

Giglie -- (crossly)  Really, you should be a round little blonde. -- Quia Salian

I don't find constables all that friendly. -- Desmin Erh

your shields protect you (except, of course, against MY warriors *grin*)!! -- Lord
