                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Do you know why orcish assassins get caught and convicted?  It's because their
idea of "subtle" is "throw them off a tower and claim they fell."  This fool of a
standby is a PERFECT case in point.

                                   Mirial Adamant

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LIN TIRIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CHELBAGHEERA win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CHELBAGHEERA 
beat DA OTHA BARKEEP and DA OTHA BARKEEP lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, LIN TIRIAN may be getting bland, as MIRIAL 
ADAMANT stays top dog in the city.  The Lost Hope Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale 
at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From LIN TIRIAN's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  SAND 
DANCERS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was EARL'S TAVERN.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LIN TIRIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Oh, good gods!  Does this mean I'm going to have to listen to the "Khalhums Dwarf"
explaining at the top of his considerable lungs that he is NOT from Khalhums?  I wish
he'd go back to Khra! -- Deelar Marion
P.S.  Of course, I can see that Khalhums might be running a bit low on willing
volunteers.  But still, if they get resurrected all the time--  Oh.  Ah.  I suppose
after a while, they just get, well, fed up, so to speak, and retire.  I know *I*
would.  If *I* get killed, you won't find *me* coming back to the same old life!  As
if!

Da Otha Barkeep -- I do wish you'd take the potato out of your mouth before
identifying yourself. -- Chelbagheera

Convicted Thief?  Pathetic.  I didn't even need both knives for him. -- Shana Two-
Knives

If the Persistent Beggar thought I would be SYMPATHETIC, having been forced to beg
myself, he was wrong.  I despise him and all his kind. -- Messalida

time to join and make a name for yourself in one of Alastari's fiercest contests!  I
