                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Don't really know what to say.  I avoided Thimbell because I didn't think I could
win, so I challenged Korienellen.  I won so here I am.  I see the Sewing Triangle has
been reduced to the Sewing Line last turn.  May you spawn more warriors in the
future. -- The Monk 

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in NIATOLI ISLAND this turn, and 
let's start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, THE MONGOL fought 
CAPTURED ORC and gained 9 points and contributed to RAVAGING LORDS' 5-0-1.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and THE MONK remains NIATOLI 
ISLAND's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Don't Drop Inn?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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

Rinterisse -- I have decided to wear a helm seeing that my eye is always freakin ya
out.  But the helm looks strange with the eye slit directly above the nose guard. --
The Cyclops

     You're all heart.

The Monk -- Obviously there are no vows of non-violence here. -- Korienellen

The Convicted Assassin is pathetic, but then, we all knew that. -- Thimbell

The Mongol -- I can stand you defeating me, but do you have to laugh about it?  And
don't lie, you DID laugh, I distinctly heard you. -- Rintirisse
P.S.  Okay, even the steward snickered.  Still.
