                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Is it turn about, or musical chairs?  Loris lost to a standby this time, the
Venomous Concubine.  Not, I will admit, a favorite person of mine.  And so she, too,
lost the title.  And then *I* defeated the Convicted Assassin to TAKE the title.
There's probably some secret meaning in all this, but ferreting out secret meanings
does not much interest me, so I leave that for others.  Make of it what you will.

                                  Linaea Deane

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZENSU brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see MENDAL KORDIN win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ZENSU may be getting bland, as LINAEA DEANE stays top 
dog in the city.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From ZENSU's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ZENSU to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this 
place-- Snide Clemens

Just passing through.  Nothing to see here. -- Human Horn

     Unfortunately true. -- Arenamaster Diego

Linaea's a good enough kid, for a cousin or maybe a sister, family relations among
the Deanes are complicated, but she just misses the point here.  Yes, true, I find
the Venomous Concubine appalling, but primarily I lost so that *I* would not have to
write the column this time. -- Loris Deane

The real problem Loris had, if I may be so bold, is that women don't know how to
handle the Concubine.  I had no trouble. -- Coolin Dunn

The Khalhums Dwarf really has it in for tall people, doesn't he? -- Mendal Kordin

I should have known better than to play poker with the Userous Merchant.  He manages
to convince ALL the other people at the table--five of us--that a pair and a high
card equals a full apartment.  I never even HEARD of a full apartment as a winning
hand at cards. -- Chad Goram
