                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's been another good run for us here at Numb-ers.  Top Team, Orange O'Clock is
this week's favorite (but honestly I think it's the name, who wouldn't come to a
fight with Orange O'Clock?) and of course, I'm Duelmaster.  Normally this is the part
of the column where I'd pretend to have something witty to  say, pretending I'd
learned something by becoming Duelmaster... but there has been a vicious rumour
spreading about my wearing pantyhose to my fights.  This needs to stop... they are
stockings.  The pantyhose itches too much under my leather armour. -- -....

                                      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 GORBLE win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ONE beat 
POLYNIKES and POLYNIKES lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as DIENEKES takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, DAYLA KIV?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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

Polynikes -- Nice try, but looks like you're not quite ready to take the DM chair
from me.  Hope you have better luck in ADM. -- -....

Hesti Tyl Varen -- I'd say something mean about beating you, but at 13 and 24 you
probably feel bad enough already. -- 111

Nimini Tyl Zo -- Losing to you made me sleepy. -- Orange O'Clock

Rooster -- I know I lost, and I know you won't write a personal, but still, I'm glad
to fight you instead of just "taking a number," so to speak.  It feels more real. --
