                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     As I record my 19th Duelmaster Title, and as I hope I can soon become a Lord
Protector and retire from this rat race, I think it is time to reflect on my
teammates and explain what they really, really mean to the boss....
     4-H (Me) The boss was a 4-H member for many years, and had wonderful times and
memories at 4-H Camp each summer.  He was known for taking 18 projects one year,
including sewing, baking, entomology, forestry and a bunch of other stuff.  Great
pleasure came from the week long Forestry Camp and Purdue Leadership trips that he
won.
     QUALITY -- When he graduated from Engineering School, he started work as a
Quality Engineer at G.E.  He spent about fourteen years moving up the Quality ranks
until he gravitated into General and Operations Management and the Executive level.
     CIRCLE-K -- During College, after an inglorious fraternity membership in S.A.E.
(Sigma Alpha Epsilon), he joined Circle-K, College Kiwanis.  While being involved in
many charity and volunteer activities, he also became an officer and Chairman of The
1969 State Circle-K Convention.
     SAXAPHONE -- The boss began taking piano and accordion lessons appx. age 10, and
still "messes around" with both today.  But his real love was taking up the saxophone
for High School Band and Orchestra, where in his sophomore year he moved into first
chair.  He doesn't play it anymore but he should since his "hot wind" would play well
with this instrument.
     CANTEX -- the newby -- For 30 years his father worked at Cannelton Sewer Pipe,
later to become part of the merger Can-Tex.  In his early years he enjoyed sneaking
into the "pipe yard" and playing around and in the massive clay pipes.  Later, he
often went with his dad, a truckdriver and Teamster organizer, to Union Meetings.
Luckily (or sadly some say) he later changed his politics.
     Perhaps my column has become a little too personal for you?  Well, heck!  When
you become DM you can write just about anything you want too.  Come and get me and
maybe the next column will be yours.

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SNOWBOUND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ZURISDAY win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
QUALITY beat GARUTH HOLM and GARUTH HOLM lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, SNOWBOUND may be getting bland, as 4-H 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.  
SNOWBOUND, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  PUBLIC ENEMY the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like LIFE IMPACTS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the SNOWBOUND 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.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Shucks, Lifeys, a goldurn 3-1 be gud.  Yup.  Proud 'o yuh all. -- Smitty

Shobart Teague -- Ouch!  That hurt!  You speared up a good one and I salute you. --
Quality (feeling anything but)

Jenna Kuhl -- Was that me playing and wailing or me playing and you wailing? --
Saxaphone

Heart Of Glass -- I love it when we all take our time to accomplish good things.
Lots of time.... -- Circle K (feeling rather patient at the moment)

Moldar -- My turn. -- 4-H
P.S.  The party and fancy hats and noisemakers was lots of fun, though.

Smitty asks that you welcome his newest recruit, Cantex, to Snowbound.  He says
"Yikers!  Gotta take what comes!  Rite?." -- The Life Impacts Publicist

Snowbound -- Need a wizard to cast the following spells on the lot of land and the
old tower I've bought from the Donnegil Noble; watch ghost, negative energy pulse,
symbol of death, soulfire, boiling blood, nova of souls, thedying dance, dancing
bones, fog of death imlosion, word of destruction, word of disruption, word of death,
blood clot, and slay living. -- Liam the Goth

Snowbound -- The Tower of Ahringol is open to the public, as well as classes of the
fate, mummies 101, and are you dead and don't know it (Wednesday nights).  Starting
next month full moon dances and how to conduct your own funerals in the back yard. --
Liam

Jorja -- Hey, so you know who's the big fate in this neck of the woods? -- Liam

Smitty -- Lady Fern said I like it here so here I am, some of my followers should be
coming in the next five months.  My other team landed in Aruak City (Grave Dancers

XXV).  This team here was 606 back when I was younger.  Nice place Snowbound is. --
Liam
P.S.  Will be hit and miss on my team running for a while.

4-H -- Fair enough, but I do wish you'd graduate.  Surely three+ years is enough? --
Moldar Nay

Saxaphone -- Do I need to be syncopated gaited to keep up with you? -- Jenna Kuul

Quality -- Today, *I* had it. -- Shobart Teegue

Nefara -- You looked like such a pretty little thing, and then... OUCH! -- Garuth
Holm

Zurisday -- I'm always better at Maundays. -- Newlin Ohm
