                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well...that was legendary, Redd.  Sort of.  But then, one doesn't expect REAL
legends from mere humans.  No doubt you did the best you could.

                                       Irlon

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LIN TIRIAN to 
see what's new.  MVP award for FRANK?  THE LEGENDS' proud of him after beating 
PERSISTANT BEGGAR and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  CLINT got 
smashed by AMBITIOUS GUARD, and lost 12 points!  Like, NATASHA must be pretty gutsy!  
She challenged the Duelmaster from SAND DANCERS.  Does this gal have a death wish or 
what!  Was that a tear I saw in NATASHA's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And 
wasn't IRLON fit to be tied!  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.  The warriors 
of THE LEGENDS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys 
know something that I don't?  I don't know what LETHAL HERITAGE's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from THE LEGENDS, that's fer sher.  Can 
THE LEGENDS' JAMES be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  LIN TIRIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Clint -- The clint in your eye made me really nervous.  I figured I should get out
while I was still alive.  And I was right!  Because I AM still alive. -- Mirial Steel
P.S.  People think that I must be dumb, since I'm a gladiator.  But I'm not THAT
dumb.

Sammy -- You know, if I didn't have seven times your fights, I'd feel good about that
win.  (sigh)  Do you ever get the idea you're not cut out for this life?  I do,
often.  But it was this or debtor's prison. -- Jigger Kree
P.S.  And I'm still not sure I made the right choice.

Hmm, the Cult Member is an elf.  I wonder what kind of cults elves have.... -- Shana
the Knife

Marthe -- Well, you're lucky you got sent down here instead of in the Delarquan
Federation.  I hear they actually KILL the losers there.  Barbaric. -- Mirial Steel

Aidon -- Why would I want to jump on you?  Other than in recognition of your general
perversity. -- Irlon

Vlad -- Oh.  Well, good.  Cleanliness is next, you know. -- Jigger Kree

Loch Ness -- And may this year be the best yet. -- Li Dan, Sand Dancers

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
