                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Still here.  Not much to say.  The Venomous Concubine wasn't very venomous.  He did
teach well, so it wasn't a complete waste.  Makai has his sights set on Parlen Quir.
So I'll probably be fighting a standby.

We're glad to see another team return to Jurine.  Welcome back, Black Pearl.  We're
tired of killing only Middle Way guys.  We're sure they are tired of it too.

Venenoso
Blade And Blood

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to BLADE AND BLOOD, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the MIDDLE 
WAY 16 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for ZOE ALDEN, who flew up 14 points in the 
rankings after mashing SUBU EL KEER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was SUBU EL KEER, who dropped 12 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with ZOE ALDEN.  Going for the gusto and coming 
up with aught but bloody knuckles was MIDDLE WAY 16's PARLEN QUIR, who was turned 
away from the Duelmastership by CIRSIUM VULGARE.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed 
protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, PARLEN QUIR would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Well, the arena is no place for slow 
learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and CIRSIUM VULGARE demonstrated that very violently 
on PARLEN QUIR's body.  Big man!  CIRSIUM VULGARE kills PARLEN QUIR.  Who ya gonna 
fight next, CIRSIUM VULGARE--Minnie Mouse?  I hope MIDDLE WAY 16 has a good enough 
fighter to beat the snot out of CIRSIUM VULGARE.  Yesterday I talked to the MIDDLE 
WAY 16's manager and LADY THORNE, slayer of VELLIA WYE.  The manager:  'I think I 
can, I think I can'.  LADY THORNE:  'I already did'.  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JURINE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Parlen Quir -- You want me to go to the Dark Arena, don't you?  You are cruel.  I
just need to beat you once and I'll be safe.  But you don't care, do you?  <sob> --
Makai Abados

Bladedancer -- Nice to fight someone new.  Now, don't interfere with my climb to the
top. -- Lady Thorne

Cham Dugan -- I've gotten a second chance.  Thanks for the win!  Now can I keep it
going? -- Subu El Keer

Aekir -- I'm feeling dizzy now.  That last hit was unnecessary. -- Jehad Nga

Mikai Abados -- Nothing like getting together with old friends to trade attacks and
parries.  Except maybe having some new attacks and parries to trade.  Failing that,
how about beer? -- Parlen Quir

Subu el Keer -- I wish you were a woman.  A woman could do anything she wanted with
me, well, almost anything, and I'd love it.  You...well, let's just say I draw the
line a lot sooner, okay? -- Cham Dugan

Cowl Skirling -- Odd name, you're not from around here, right?  Maybe...cowl?  Oh,
gods, you're a CULT MEMBER?  NOOOOO! -- Takole Urm

Blackmoon -- I don't CARE what Certain People (aka some of my teammates) say about
this being a great chance to Meet Women.  I almost DIED because of you!  I don't want
to meet women who are going to kill me. -- Xavan Yole

Beegars.  Bah. -- Zoe Alden

Mikai Abados -- And you put UP with that kind or orders? -- Parlen Quir

Subu el Keer -- After only three turns, you're "played out"?  That's barbaric. --
