                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Does the Gnu come back the turn before the Big Tournament so that he fights as an
immortal?  Or does he wait until the summer to play his hand?  Can I stay alive if he
does fight?  Can I get out of here before Lum makes his way to the CCs?  Will the
Meat Dancers fight this turn or skip another?  Which TP will I fight?  What's that
smell?  Are we having meatloaf?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Not for nothing has ZIG in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CLIFFHOME "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games 
this week, it seems that ZAG posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
LUM BUSBY.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand ZAG bested LUM BUSBY.  
Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in CLIFFHOME as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

     And to finish out Zig's list of questions:  Who's on first?

Bent -- Don't worry about how you look now.  Before you leave for the Isle, we'll fix
you up like you wouldn't believe.  You've earned it.  After that, Sheila can take on
the all the healing/repair duties. -- Guys and Gals at UAK

Lum -- So you go after another woman that's a lot less intimidating?  I may just be
too much woman for you after all. -- Bertha

Karty -- Is an older man intimidated by a woman that puts a warhammer up aside his
head in the arena?  If not, how about a drink later? -- Bertha

That Turkey Leg Tango will put a hurtin on you if you don't stretch before hand.  I
was expecting a little girly standin.  Have to remember to stretch next time. --
Franz
P.S.  I think I can guess your favorite learn.

Zig -- That just about made my day.  Or wrapped a day that had been made already but
a bunch of annoying stuff.  Yeah, I know, what else could you do but your best?  It's
just that this is one of those days where I wonder why the heck I ever thought
entering the arena was a good idea. -- Bent Fender

Bertha -- Impressive, as usual.  I salute you, and if I can make the offer without
getting hit, how about if I buy you a drink? -- Kartikaya

Zag -- If Johnny wants you buttered up, he has to do it himself. -- Lumb Busby

Ribeye Rhomba -- I'm not so dumb as to cultivate two women at once, and Zag has me
fully occupied.  But if you could recommend a steakhouse I could take her to, I'd
appreciate that. -- Jitney Johnny

T-Bone Two-Step -- You need to practice the footwork. -- Thea Dozzier

Zag -- Ah... it'd be a long way to the coast, we'd have to make it an overnighter at
the least.  But I do know a good place in Bonsur. -- Jitney Johnny

Otis -- Fraid not.  Some arenas just can't hold onto their extra teams.  It's the
pits, but it's life. -- Jorja
