                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You push your luck, Pat.  Quita was right last month, you need to broaden your
horizons, look beyond this father-son thing.

                                   Timor Unred

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
XOCHITHLAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see WORLD BRINK win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
COLLABORATOR beat QUITA ROSALA and QUITA ROSALA lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, XOCHITHLAN may be getting bland, as 
TIMOR UNRED 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, XOCHITHLAN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  UDARN 
VOYL was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to MISTY FORM of 
PROPHETIC OMENS for challenging up by 20 to UDARN VOYL.  MISTY FORM lost to get 14 
points of recognition.   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the XOCHITHLAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

Swirls and Arcs -- No kin, and just as well.  Those brothers weren't fighters, just
scribes.  Being a scribe here would do me no good at all. -- Fallon Grimm
P.S.  Better cheap thrills than expensive ones, I suppose, but I'd go for a placid
life if I could get one.  If I graduate, I *will* go for a placid life.

Ripple Causer -- Yeah, but they were such GOOD chips.  I couldn't eat just one! --
Udarn Voyl

World Brink -- I've been there.  Quite a view, but I think the doomsayers are right,
and one of these days it's going to break off and fall into the ocean.  I don't plan
to be there when it happens. -- Fallon Grimm

Swirls and Arcs -- I enjoyed dancing with you, though you're a little tall for me.
Next time, though, try not to pick me up and swish me through the air when going into
a swirl, okay?  It makes me dizzy and I nearly through up. -- Udarn Voyl

Ripple Causer -- Quite unnecessary.  My hair is naturally wavy. -- Quita Rosala

Steg-O-Sore -- Your enhanced frontage does you no credit.  You shouldn't have done
it, or I guess, gotten someone else to do it. -- Bettina Chim
P.S.  And the hair, what do they call that, a Modified Mohawk?  BAAAD choice.

Tank-Losaurus -- Time to take a step back until a new low front comes in and
reconstitutes me more firmly. -- Misty Form

Udarn Voyl -- Both weapons!  You'd think I could dance around one of those swings.  I
need to do more swirls and less arcing. -- Swirls and Arcs

Quita Rosala -- I thought an old-timer like you would give me all kinds of insights.
Too bad I couldn't have met up with you before you became senile. -- Ripple Causer

Fallon Grimm -- I should have known a doom omen wouldn't work too well vs. an already
grim fellow. -- World Brink

Fallon Grimm -- It's like this.  You remember how you'd try to put the circle in the
square block and it wouldn't fit?  You just weren't compatible with my instruction.
-- Swirls and Arcs

Rirorni Horseman -- That was not cool!  I see you again and there's going to be a
headless horseman sighting. -- Crator's Cause
