                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I fought the Kung-Fu Master for the title before, lost, and still got the title.
So this time, I beat him, and it feels good.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for CLIFFHOME.  Like, HOLMES ON THE RANGE had 
to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by ZOMBIE SQUAD!  Way to go 
ZOMBIE SQUAD!  MVP award for SPIKE?  ZOMBIE SQUAD's proud of it after beating 
AMBITIOUS GUARD and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FAITH got 
smashed by MORINDEL SALM, and lost 6 points!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
VETERAN MERCENARY, BUT LUM BUSBY is still the Duelmaster because he has the most 
recognition points!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All CLIFFHOME ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  CLIFFHOME is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Morindel Salm -- I'm glad you got out of the infimary, you're a deer for letting me
win. -- My Deer Watson

Sauvarn Maur -- It's okay, I had a lovely time at the infirmary with Morindel Salm.
I learned to play Gin. -- Baskerville Pig

     I thought Gin was something to drink?

Spike -- I was told you couldn't fight... I was told wrong! -- The Cows Afoot

Faith -- Clearly I'll need more faith to beat you.  Crom protect me. -- Lion's Mane

My Deer Watson -- Drat.  Still, Jorja says I'm better off with one loss on my record.
But only one, mind!  Don't do this again. -- Morindel Salm

Baskerville Pig -- If that's a kind of sauce... hmm.  Too sour, I'm thinking. 
Probably needs just a bit of honey in there. -- Sauvarn Maur

Zander -- I see you're a sexless golem now, quite proper for a zombie, but what were
you before you died? -- Kevsilessa Kiro

Baskerville Pig -- Ha! -- Morindel Salm
