                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A good try, Nareen, but it was clearly "my day."  Not that I have the day all to
myself, which makes me wonder about that phrase.  The number of living entities and
possibly not living materials whose day this also was, well, it ends up sounding
either silly, or presumptuous, or both.  I wouldn't want to be either, so I'll just
say:  It's been a beautiful day, and I'm glad to be alive in it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JADE MOUNTAIN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for KO-HAIN?  
SAND DANCERS' proud of him after beating MELROSE and getting 17 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  MELROSE got smashed by KO-HAIN, and lost 14 points!  And I was 
just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome DEADLY 
FORCE.  Aren't CRITICALS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

All -- Probably procrastinated too long, so I will likely be inactive this turn. --
Guido, working some weird hours lately

     It probably beats not working, but some days I wonder about that.

Jorja -- Congratulations on your five-award turn. -- Guido

Ko-Hain -- Oh, stop, sir.  You'll turn my head. -- Melrose

Winter Rose -- I wish I was surprised.  Congrats. -- Nareen

Ko-Hain -- What, trying to impress Melrose?  Ow! -- Whetmore

Melrose -- No problem.  I'll hit someone else for a while. -- Ko-Hain

Iron Handed -- Think of me as a rust monster. -- Jade Lotus
P.S.  I didn't laugh, really!  Just maybe chuckled a little.

Deadly Force -- I'm glad you did NOT use that.  It would have been terribly
embarrassing for me. -- Claws of Night
P.S.  You got five skills and two ratings?  I feel... used.

Whetmore -- I do like hitting people with this. -- Ko-Hain

Grape Ape -- If you didn't look on the grape when it was fermented, you might do
better.  Or maybe not. -- Stone Hammer
