                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Looks like I beat out the 'Rhoomba' by only a snake's tail.  Fortunately I've
won more.  I completely expect that pain in the asp to try and take the chair from me
next week.  Thus I better tell my snake joke quickly.  So the flood is over, and Noah
tells all the animals on the ark to go and be fruitful.  All the animals go off
except some snakes.  Noah goes and asks the snakes what's wrong.  The snakes ask him
if he can bring them a tree stump.  Noah asks why and the snakes say "We're adders,
we can only multiply on log tables."

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZENSU!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, CAPTAIN PLANET, but 
OLDER BY FAR was just too good to be stopped.  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  HEART stopped CORBIE LEK dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of BEYOND THE PALE must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
OLDER BY FAR's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
BEYOND THE PALE, that's fer sher.  Like, is CORMEK DEANE popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of ZENSU!  He's got a 13-10-1, is that good?  People were 
asking me did HEARING AID REALLY challenge CORMEK DEANE?  (all right, maybe they 
didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but CORMEK 
DEANE wants me to write about it since he was defeated by HEARING AID.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ZENSU is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Linaea Deane -- I was sick enough as it was and then you decided to beat up on me.
That's crass! -- Got The Runs

Persistent Beggar -- I am not giving up my chair for anybody, you hear?! -- Rocking

Dirty Coal -- I can hear you now.  I can hear you now.  Why don't you go take a bath?
-- Hearing Aid

It is pleasing to know that our Duelmaster has heart.  Kudos! -- Methuselah

Hearing Aid -- I SAID, NICE CHALLENGE. -- Dirty Coal

Corbie Lek -- How do you get gravely injured on your left hand?!? -- Heart

Rhomba -- I only lost because I though you were here to clean the floor. -- Earth

retire.  I like it. -- Corbie Lek

Does anybody think it unfair to the other standbys that we so very much of the Kung
Fu Master, the Khalhums Dwarf, and so on?  Although I suppose when new fodder comes
in from the bottom, they'll work their way through Mordant Deserters and Embezzling
Scribe.  Ah, well. -- Cormek Deane

Yeah, well, I've got a Captured Orc.  Seems a decent sort, for an orc. -- Corbett
