                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I have probably mentioned, one time or another, how sad it is for this once-
great arena to award its highest title after a fight with a standby.  Probably not in
those precise words, but... one can hardly escape the thought when facing, again, a
standby.

                                      Pascella

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CALEAM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BAKED FRATSFA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested JACKIE O and was awarded 6 points 
in recognition.  Although KUNG-FU MASTER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to 
topple the reign of victorious PASCELLA.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

The Virginal Concubine says she won't eat anything but unfertilized eggs!  Dumb.
Does she think I'm going to go around and make sure the hens are chaste? -- Alfreda
Creme

Alfreda -- The hens are not chaste.  Count on it.  We've got good roosters around
here. -- Ovaella June

Elenore Roosevelt -- For some reason, you make me think of chocolate pudding, smooth
as velvet, sweet, melting on the tongue... ah! -- Jellia Boone

Jackie O -- Potato doughnuts?  Hmm, let me think about this. -- Spud Loomis

The trouble with the Shewish Buffet is that after half an hour, you're hungry again.
Cheese louise, aren't you getting ANY good recruits?  We want to meet you on the
sands. -- Jorja and the Golden Canyon chefs
