                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Really, this is ridiculous!  Even were he not a standby, the Userous Merchant
would be wholly unsuited to be duelmaster.  And since the Commission in its wisdom
allowed him to fight for the title, I had to see to it that he did not win.

                                 Salorima Tiransith

P.S.  The report is that he "nearly died" in the Infirmary.  Sorry about that, I
intended for him to completely die.

                                      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 TAVELSHAN KETHAL win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, NIATOLI ISLAND may be getting bland, as SALORIMA 
TIRANSITH stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, NIATOLI ISLAND?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of NIATOLI ISLAND.  I feel much better now.  I see the 
crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
