                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Finding myself matched with Inferno, I brought a fire hose to the fight.
Amazingly difficult to get it past the stewards, but I managed, and it worked.

                                    Gilbern Juss

P.S.  Halberd?  Gods.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VALAMANTIS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, PLUMBER'S BUTT fought HAIL 
STORM and gained 15 points and contributed to CHICKS DIG IT's 1-0-1.  TREMOR has lost 
to NEEVAN POVAR, falling 8 points, while helping make DISASTERS a 1-4-0 turn.  We 
should ask INFERNO about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster 
does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Drake's Lodge?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was MIDDLE WAY 10's warrior NEEVAN POVAR.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Whatever bright future HAIL STORM may have had, it's all history 
now.  The manager of DISASTERS has lost a promising 3-0-0 warrior.  We'd like to 
remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; 
and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in VALAMANTIS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

And three wins against standbys--  Oh, wait, make that two and one against standbys.
Kolbert wasn't on his guard against the Convicted Assassin.  But *I* managed quite
well, as usual, against a Veteran Mercenary, and Neevan Povar forced the Userous
Merchant to give him a refund.  So, not a bad day.  Although we wouldn't mind if our
fifth teammate showed up before we need to provide ourselves with ANOTHER new
recruit. -- Imrom Llews
