                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Once again, here I am.  There seems to be a revolving door attached to this
place.

                                      J'Korou

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch MEDAL OF HONOR F1's 
heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see NAPOLEON win a fight and gain 
16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, OSCAR MEYER beat GEORGE and GEORGE lost 6 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as JEREMY CAMP 
takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
VEASTIAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  CIV LEADERS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DEVILED HAM.  Ha ha ha ha!  
SJORDHAL 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 LEO POWERS of 
MEDAL OF HONOR F1 for challenging up by 23 to SJORDHAL.  LEO POWERS won to get 96 
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?   
     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 VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Oscar Meyer -- "Deviled ham"?  As if!  My grandad always used to say it was floor
sweepings in the butcher's shop.  I admit I never went to look.  Didn't really want
to know.  But at this time and place, it gives me a certain satisfaction to think of
you as being...floor sweepings. -- Bitt Betro

Prince Connor -- Somehow I had expected a prince to be taller.  Must be all that in-
breeding, royal houses are notorious for it, of course.  And you're not an elf. --
Sjordhal

The Venomous Concubine is an amazing spoilsport.  Which figures, when you think about
it. -- Selinsia

King Corey -- You're taller than the prince.  Good, that's the way it should be.  If
he ever gets to be king, then he can grow a little. -- Noriltenne
