                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's just before noon Owsly walks thru the front door of Forge's old pub, a
gruff look upon his face.  Forge is standing behind the bar polishing a tumbler with
an old rag before stashing the glass on a shelf.  He looks up at the sound of the
door opening to his establishment as Owsly strides across the room.
     "Odd seeing you here, Owsly.  I didn't figure you would grace my bar with your
presence after we parted ways," Forge says in a sarcastic manner.
     "Aside from da face ye record sucked and ye cost me far more golds than ye made
me, you never listened ta me advice and me wanted ta kick ye arse from here ta Sunset
and back, me really got nothing personal against ye."
     "Thanks, Owsly.  Coming from you, that means a lot," Forge says with a sneer.
     "Look, lad.  Ye may not be one o' the best Aimers 'round, but for whatever
reason, Pub be coming ta seek yer advice.  Ye be seein' him lately?  Me dannae see
him since he took the throne."
     "Maybe I have."  Forge pretends to examine another glass nonchalantly.
     Owsly lunges across the top of the bar and grabs hold of Forge by the collar and
half drags him over the top of the bar.  "I DANNAE BE HAVIN' TIME FOR YER SNOTTY
SHAT!!!  Me be blisterin' yer eye if me need ta!!!"  Owsly roughly releases Forge.
     "I was just messing with you, you old badger!  He's over there!"  Forge nods his
head in a direction toward the entertainment stage.  "Get your pup and get the hell
outta my bar!" Forge growls.
     "Thanks.  Sorry, been lookin' fer the lad all night.  Guess me nerves be gettin'
da better o' me."  Owsly pulls out a silver piece and tosses it on the bar.  "Get ye
shirt pressed.  It be all wrinkled up.  Lookin' like ye be sleepin' in it all day."
Owsly gives a half grin and walks toward the stag.  As he nears, he can hear the
sound of short snores.  Looking around the area in front of the stage, he follows the
snores until he finds his man.
     Curled up under a table with a boot for a pillow lays Pub, snoring.
     "Oh Pub, lad, what ye be doin' ta yerself?" Owsly says softly aloud.  He kneels
down beside the sleeping fighter and gently shakes his shoulder.  "Pub, lad, ye need
ta be gettin' up."  The figure of Pub moves slightly and groans, as if talking in his
sleep.  "Pub!  Get up!" Owsly barks.
     Pub's eyes open and he squints at the figure looming over him.  "Oh, hey,
Owshhhly.  Me be duelshhmashhter betsha be O' proud o' me, huh! (hic)"
     Get up, Pub.  This be no way ta be representin' ye clan, lad.  No way a'tall!"
Owsly glares down at Pub.  "Ye be in no shape ta fight like this, laddie."
     Pub rolls onto his elbows to push himself up.  "Me got thish, Owshhly.  Me be
fit ta take on me challenger."  He raises up and knocks his head hard on the
underside of the table and lets out an expletive.
    "Nay, not like this.  Ye dannae be ready, lad, and ye dannae be embarrasin' da
clan like this.  Me throwin' ye fight and ye can earn it back when ye sober up.  Now
let's be gettin' ye home and cleaned up."  Owsly helps Pub to his feet and half
carries, half drags the man out of the tavern. "And no more hangin' oot with Forge.
He be bad fer ye, lad.  Bad fer ye."
     "Whatever ya say, Owshhly.  Ya be da bosssh."

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LAPUR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, CLAN CROW had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by CARDOW HUNTERS!  Way to go 
CARDOW HUNTERS!  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but CLAN CROW 
really goofed with their 1-3-0.  MVP award for SAMM?  DAGGERS DEEP's proud of him 
after beating AKUMU and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  KICKER 
MURPHY got smashed by ANSHIN, and lost 10 points!  What a putz!  PUB O'CONNOR fights 
so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he 
was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  
Oh well, welcome CASIMIR PULASKI.  Aren't BOHICA proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of BLACK SAMURAI must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why METAL MINCERS' 
been avoiding BLACK SAMURAI so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, 
is WINTERSONG popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of LAPUR!  She's 
got a 3-4-0, is that good?  People were asking me did GOWRON REALLY challenge 
CLAYBANK?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but CLAYBANK wants me to write about it since he won 
victory over GOWRON.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All LAPUR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  LAPUR is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Pubber!  Champeen!  Duelmaster!  Aye.  Ole Pub O'Connor done it!  Git me sum free ale
ta celerbrate? -- Oremaster

Murasaki -- First we match up.  I win.  Then you challenge.  And I win.  I like your
persistence.  I love the freebies. -- Brass Bander

Kim Kardashian -- It was my pleasure to tussle with you and let you come out on top.
Time of my life! -- Lead Lancer

Tane -- I think you are my favorite gladiator.  We match up; I win.  You challenge; I
win.  I win.  I win.  I win.  Gotta love it! -- Steel Sharpener

All -- I just want to congratulate Pub O'Connor on the DM Title, my Metal Mincers on
their 2-1, and Cardow Hunters on their big point gain. Life in Lapur is so neat.  It
is. -- Ora

Oremaster -- What are you getting me for my birthday, Luv? -- Ora (batting her
eyelashes)

Some o' them than spanx thangs, gal!  Aye. -- Oremaster

All -- I may have gone 0-5 last turn, but I had the first and second most popular
fighters.  Perhaps it's because the crowd loves watching us suffer, but I prefer to
think it's because we are so good looking! -- The Open Hand

Nero -- For the record, I may be a little clumsy but I don't cower.  If I see that
commentator on the street, I'll show him how I cower! -- Bahram

Anshin -- I strike, cut, slash, smash, bash, circle, shift, step, and basically jump
around like a monkey-- all to entertain the crowds and who gets the win? Not me!
Ugh, this place is sooo unfair! -- Magdala

Steel Sharpener -- Okay, now I'm embarrassed.  What doesn't kill us, eh? -- Tane

Sulu -- How come no one ever wields their weapon with benevolence? -- Iryana

Wintersong -- I could have won.  But everyone else on my team lost and being the
newest member I just wanted to get that sense of belonging. -- Atash

Congratulations, Pub O' Connor!  I hope this means we get a heavily accented DM
column! -- The Open Hand

     There speaks someone who doesn't have to proof it.

Ulphor -- Congratulations!  It's a good thing my head is attached securely or you may
have had one more kill!  I hope to be retiring soon myself. -- Bahram

Steel Sharpener -- But *I* was slim, and very lithe, as well. -- Grassfire

Solwyn -- They're only weeds to the uninitiated.  Those who appreciate them properly
realize that they're specimens of biodiversity. -- Grassfire

Atash -- Surely that wasn't "vicious"?  I don't do viciousness.  Sometimes a deathly
chill, but not vicious. -- Wintersong

Wenien -- Oh... I thought the arenamaster said "When" and started.  Must've been your
name, instead.  Oh, well, works for me! -- Claybank

A Standby!  How demeaning.  But it's a win. -- Grassfire

Now, I am *not* demeaned by fighting a Captured Orc.  Bored, maybe, but not demeaned.
As my teammate noted, it's a win. -- Windflower

Cindy Crawford -- Your need was greater than mine? -- Snowflake
