                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, dear, defeated by the Traveling Tinker (a Dwarf but not from Khalhums), and
I STILL take the title.  This is, well, my face is red, you know?  I don't belong up
here.  I will turn this column over to the Dwarf, if so be he feels like writing
anything.

                                     Kirssarina

     My thanks to Kirssarina, who has proven herself a true lady.  It is no wonder
that I defeated her on the sands; she is too green for this position.  Give her a
year of wins and losses and she might--possibly--be worthy.  Then again, she might
not.  She seems sadly lacking in stamina, and unless she stays with the exercise
regimen I have set for her, this will not change.  Sitting on a cushion eating
chocolates while a minstrel sings of courtly love will not improve the stamina of a
gladiator.

                    Khad'drakh'n'dhaz of Khra,
                         known as the Traveling Tinker, maker of superb blades

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon DAYLA KIV, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SAND DANCERS had cause to celebrate, after KOLBAN 
TEN TAHL got 16 points by beating LALVO OF THE PEN.  Out with the old, in with the 
new.  Enter KOMAR THE PENNILESS, handily defeating KIRSSARINA.  With 60 points, SAND 
CRAPPER of ARENA FELINES takes the position of DAYLA KIV's Duelmaster.  Word has it 
one team in DAYLA KIV is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are DAYLA KIV's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for DAYLA KIV?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Fase -- I find it difficult to face you any more.  I'm just not up to it. -- Dolby
Klee
P.S.  If that's an error, I'll take one.

I curl my lip in scorn of Rornis the Dark, one-shotted by me. -- Moko ten Zora

My brother gives himself airs.  The Shameless Beggar was no more difficult than
Rornis. -- Moro ten Zora

I don't think that Cutpurse was REALLY Cringing.  I think it was all a ruse by which
he meant to lead me astray and defeat me against my expectations.  But I foiled HIM!
-- Kolban ten Tahl, terror of cutpurses everywhere

Five fights, and We were It.  Bad. -- Jorja, Sand Dancers

Moko ten Zora -- Fool that you are, do you think that was the best I could do?  But
Arenamaster Dernal asked me to "go easily" on you lest you lose heart and quit.  I'm
not sure you're worth it. -- Rornis the Dark

Moro ten Zora -- And nothing in my CUP?  What are you, a miser? -- Kuran of Ankolin
Street, Beggar by Trade and the Grace of Mantor

Kolban ten Talh -- Go on, lord it over people just because you're so TALL.  That just
means that when you FALL, you'll come down harder.  And I'll LAUGH. -- Densian the
Coward, Cutpurse
