                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What?  I'm the Duelmaster again?  Looks like One is the only Challenger after I
beat Aradi Scampi.  Since I'm up here so much I've decided to get a sponser.  So
today's DM column is brought to you by the number six and the Ketchup Advisory Board.
These are the good years, in the golden sun, A new day is  dawning, a new life has
begun, Love is flowing, like ketchup on a bun.  Ketchup... for the good time.

     -- -....

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DAYLA KIV brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ORANGE O'CLOCK win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
MARDEL TEN VAREN beat MILKSHAKE and MILKSHAKE lost 3 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAYLA KIV may be getting bland, as -.... 
stays top dog in the city.  The Crystal Wheel, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DAYLA KIV's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And now a passing thought on a warrior 
dying young (ARADI SCAMPI of SHEWISH BUFFET):  You had your chance and now you're 
dead.  Oh well...  Seriously now, is it really honorable for -.... from NUMB-ERS to 
kill ARADI SCAMPI and give SHEWISH BUFFET the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  
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 DAYLA KIV to get a drink than The Crystal 
Wheel!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide

Aradi Scampi -- I'm guessing you're used to swinging first.  Perhaps you can try
again later. -- - ....

Mardel Ten Varen -- Okay, maybe I am laughing at you, but only a little. -- One

Milkshake -- Milkshakes are too much for me, I'm sticking to rootbeer floats. -- 111

     GOOD idea!

Shark -- Of course I was frantic, the fight went long and I was about to miss
Friends! -- Half Past Pi

Krakel -- BTW, Hatchet to the head hurts.  My ear is still ringing. -- Orange O'

One -- Have you considered going beyond that point?  One... nothing more, that's
boring. -- Mardel ten Varen

I curse Darsal the False!  May he speak the truth every time he tries to lie, may he
find himself, all unwilling, acting justly at every turn! -- Hesti tyl Varen

Dangerous Criminals.  Damn. -- Riella tyl Tahl and Nimini tyl Zo

Oddly enough, I have friendly thoughts toward the Street Sweeper, over and above the
fact that I defeated him.  It's an old story in our guild's archives that we once had
a member who used the arena name "Street Sweeper," that he fought the standby Street
Sweeper, and (this was back when standbys could learn skills, even if they didn't get
to keep them) nobody could figure out WHICH set of skills was learned by which
combatant.  Why Jorja finds this amusing, I don't know, managers are strange, but
there it is. -- Gorble

".... -- Nah, ten's just a one and a zero, that isn't more than six.  Anyone can tell
you that. -- Mardel ten Varen

111 -- We all say that from time to time. -- Hesti tyl Varen
