                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Convicted Assassin.  The man's a fool.  I don't say I wouldn't kill, if
provoked, but I hope I would not stoop so low as to do it for money.

                                   Kolbert Moon

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
VALAMANTIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see JIMMY LOW win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, VALAMANTIS may be getting bland, as KOLBERT MOON stays top dog 
in the city.  Drunkard's Guild, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where 
do they get this stuff?  From VALAMANTIS' 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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in VALAMANTIS to get a drink than Drunkard's 
Guild!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens

Not only is the Convicted Assassin of low character, he doesn't teach well, either.
-- Imrom Llews

I knew it would come back on me when Kolbert was so scornful of the Mercenary last
time.  Things always seem to come back on me.  I'm the Designated Loser or something.
-- Neevan Povar

Ghoul -- Oh, cheese louise!  Our only match against a managed opponent, and it turns
out to be a damned killing machine.  Neevan thinks HE has problems, I'll swap! --

If that's an Osksi Noble, why hasn't Osksi been buried in its own ruins?  That...
person is a joke. -- Harbert Kreigh
