                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I was a bit surprised to defeat you, Mongol, but I'll take it.  I'm guessing
you'll be back next time, yes?  Looking forward to it.  Sort of.

                                    Korienellen

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NIATOLI ISLAND?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TALON STORM win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
DARK JOURNEY beat THE MONGOL and THE MONGOL lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as TEMPEST takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks 
and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
RAVAGING LORDS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like STORM BRINGERS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     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.  I can't say as I'm proud to find out that 
RAVAGING LORDS' KOBALT has killed BEARTRACK from THE SEWING CIRCLE.  I can say I wish 
THE SEWING CIRCLE good luck in their bloodfeud.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it 
only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this 
one.   
     What does the NIATOLI ISLAND arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Zombified -- Yeah, there's too much of that going around.  Seems like a lot of
Someones Higher Up want us to be that way.  Ha! -- Beartrack

Ranger -- This totally does not make my day, to no one's surprise, I am sure. --
Rintirisse

Kobalt -- Dang!  You're really cleaning up here, aren't you? -- Dirty Howel

Toby -- I don't think you were cut out to be a ravaging lord.  Or else your manager
hates you, or, possibly, he's trying "conserve" you for some future Startling
Incident.  Either way, good luck; you're going to need it. -- Carolina Lily

Hey All -- Everyone's favorite team is back.  I know everone missed us.  Well maybe
not everyone.  I heard a Ravaging Lord was the Duelmaster.  hmmmm... I think we're
gonna have to change that. -- The Rake
