                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, Hard Knocks!  That woman really turns me on.  She can take it, and she can
dish it out, and those are things an orc understands and values.  I hope to spend a
lot of time with her.  She's great!

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RODEKI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see BRAID win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL beat WHY DO YOU ASK ME and WHY DO YOU ASK ME lost 7 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  JELLO KNUCKLES challenged RODEKI's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  
And if variety is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as DAMON SHOVELL 
stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do 
you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
GASTAIGNE was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RODEKI's 
morgue.  More variety.  A big yahoo goes out to HARD KNOCKS this turn, for revenging 
COLOR ME SUAVE's bloodfeud against DELVERS' warrior FELLERMAN.  Heh, heh, heh.  Honor 
is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of RODEKI.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --

Jello Knuckles -- Black cherry?  Hmm, hadn't thought of that one.  Intriguing
possibilities. -- Gastaigne

Toothbrush -- Floss is important, too. -- Hondurkan
P.S.  Esepcially around the tusks.

Why Do You Ask Me -- Who else is there? -- Fellerman

Spork! -- Damn, the gravy just got away from me. -- Elifas Kont

We salute the tourney participants. -- Harby and the Delvers
