                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Can you believe what Assur is going to do?  He's going to have me sit out!  He
doesn't want me to sit on the throne.  I'm his star, his prize basher, his future
hope, yet I get to sit down and do nothing this turn.  I begged, I pleaded, I
grovelled!  Still, he said no!  He is one harsh manager and so I will sit and watch
Dirty Diapers either ascend to my rightful place (being the best warrior here right
now) or watch him embarrass Assur by losing the throne that is his to lose at the
moment.
     I understand what he is trying to do, but shouldn't warriors earn the throne on
their own merit and not have a manager manipulate the rankings to achieve his own
goals?  Part of me hopes the Diapers are cleaned up.  I know that isn't very nice,
but Dirty Diapers aren't nice.  And Assur wants to glorify them and put them on top
of the arena.
     At least he is getting my column to the commission in time for print.  I did my
work and wrote my column, but Assur was 'too busy' to deliver it to the commission.
How hard is it to send a note?  He claims he was 'busy' with other things.
     If anyone wants to hire a basher, come talk to me!  Assur has lost my respect
and even though he's promised to send me an Adepts tourney, I'm open to changing
hands.  Hear that Assur?!?  I'm shopping myself around.  You should have more respect
for your finest bashers.  I understand you made me what I am and for that I thank
you.  But don't throw me out at the pinnacle of my career!  That is just wrong!

Talks Nonstop

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, CLIFFHOME?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see JELLY BELLY win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JELLY BELLY 
beat VORONSAL MAUR and VORONSAL MAUR lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due 
to absence, and inability to defend the throne, TALKS NONSTOP has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as DIRTY DIAPERS takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, CLIFFHOME?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
CLIFFHOME, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SHEWISH CANDY the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like BASH BROS CHILDREN 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  KORGENDAL FARS was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have DIRTY DIAPERS in a challenge, 
going down 9 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought DIRTY DIAPERS showed great 
skill and promise when he overcame KORGENDAL FARS.  All right, so I slept through it! 
Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for CLIFFHOME's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the CLIFFHOME 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 CLIFFHOME.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
