                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's an honor to be Duelmaster.  It comes on a sad note as my teammate Kismet
was killed on the same turn.  It just shows that a gladiator's life is always in the
balance.  So, fight well and with honor.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARADI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, TWILIGHT BRIGADE, since THE 
BROTHERHOOD took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see ELLESTRAYA win a fight and gain 14 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HUSH PUPPY beat DARKMOOR and DARKMOOR lost 7 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BB BULLY BOY takes 
the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Blind 
Cyclops Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From ARADI's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the ARADI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ARADI.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back 
of this place-- Snide Clemens

Worlock -- Oh, sh-- shoot!  I wasn't supposed to do that. -- Ready Eddie
P.S.  Of course, you tried to cut my throat first.  But still.

Cinder -- Well, I guess you don't like me, do you?  Was it the barking after
midnight?  The chewed shoes?  The breaking in to get shoes to chew on?  Where did I
go wrong? -- Hush Puppy

That Khalhums Dwarf smashed my toes! -- BB Bully Boy
P.S.  It was probably all he could reach.

Maximillian Ki -- The skills are good.  I learned lots of tricks from you. -- Garm
P.S.  But I want to win, too.  Is that too much to ask?

Trauma Hound -- That one is new to me.  Is it some kind of mushroom, like a truffle?
-- Chiquita Chiwawa

Kismet -- I feel bad about you dying.  Even though it wasn't me, I feel bad.  I mean,
we had an exchange of words!  We might have become friends, gone for long walks
together, chased sticks and rabbits, the good stuff.  But I guess it isn't going to
happen now.  That makes me sad. -- Hush Puppy

Cinder -- Well, if you don't think I should bite armor, then don't WEAR any.  I'm
supposed to bite.  I'm a fighting dog, after all. -- Chiquita Chiwawa

Shadowfire -- I looks like we will indeed get our rematch.  I wish the circumstances
were different but the honor of the team must be upheld. -- Sai Jin

Trauma Hound -- Why, thank you.  And you look very shiny wearing all that metal. --
Ellestraya

Hush Puppy -- Who told you that I used to be a pirate? -- Maximillian Ki

Chiquita Chiwawa -- So, not up for Thai food then? -- Darkmoor
