                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Kung-Fu Master, what a thrill.  Holding this title by fighting standbys is
such a travesty.

                                      Delange

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, DARK HORSEMEN, since 
ALL-UGLY TEAM took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see SAM CASSELL win a fight and gain 10 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL beat ROBERT PARISH and ROBERT PARISH lost 8 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
PIT FIGHTER 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.  What's 
the big D?  FRUITS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like ALL-UGLY TEAM avoided them the most this turn.  
What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, ZALGEI was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, 
sports fans.  ZALGEI was challenged by one of FRUITS' warriors this turn, with GRAPE 
having a lead of 18 points going into the fight.  Question now is, will TRICORUS 
accept this sort of tacky behavior?  GRAPE beating ZALGEI.  The insult, the....yech!  
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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 TRICORUS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
