                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's a bit embarrassing to hold the title because of a fight with a standby, but
at least I won.  And she wasn't venomous at all.  Quite a friendly lady.

                                     Dolby Klee

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  DAYLA KIV needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, CORPS had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by SAND DANCERS!  Way to go SAND 
DANCERS!  MVP award for LIRINI TYL VARIN?  SAND DANCERS' proud of her after beating 
CHANDAR LO and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  KOLBAN TEN TAHL's 
match with PELIS THE OLD cost him a loss of 12 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DOLBY KLEE should let TRAVELING TINKER be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

I think we should retire Pelis the Old, out of consideration for his gray hair and
all that. -- Lirini tyl Varin
P.S.  And to keep him from behaving in unbecoming ways, such as winning a fight he
SHOULD have lost.

But they do say that the Traveling Tinker is really good with damaged kettles.
Everyone should have SOME skill, after all. -- Kolban ten Tahl

I'd like to take the Traveling Tinker and boil his head in a defective kettle is what
*I* would like to do.  Kolban's an ass. -- Moro ten Zora

Yeah, and Moro's an ass, too.  I could've told you that.  And Dolby isn't so hot, I
beat U-Tana same as he did.  Easier, even. -- Moko ten Zora

Oh, no, Google DEAD?  Or at least forcibly retired.  Damn.  I hope it wasn't because
of the loss to me last time; I'd hate to have that on my conscience. -- Dolby Klee
