                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hmm, the idea of a naked lunch is perversely appealing, but it would be MUCH
better if the parties involved were of opposite sexes.  Still, tigers are adaptable,
and I eat what I can get.  Cooked--not raw!  I'm a CIVILIZED tiger.  Well, not really
a tiger, I'm not one of those werecats, although the Lunch IS.  Weird.  Not even
really naked, when in cat form, fur everywhere.

                                  Tiger Jonsalmin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  LIME JHELUM caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ROCK HARDMAN and was awarded 8 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GREEN GIANT put down 
KORYLUS VRAE, causing him to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail NAKED LUNCH, Duelmaster of LIN 
TIRIAN!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the 
whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- 
Zontani Sharp Eyes

One Armed Bandit -- We hope you DO stick around for a while, even though Tiger swept
up some of the awards this time.  Your company is enjoyable.  More so when you write
something, but enjoyable anyway. -- Jorja
P.S.  One of the pleasant features I note today is that, although there are only five
fights, there are NO standbys out there!  Quite a change from the arenas where there
are my five guys and ONE other, and the standbys.  Talk about SMALL!

Steamed Muscles -- Huh, it was MY muscles that were steamed, not yours.  You may have
noticed:  steaming turns them into over-cooked spaghetti.
P.S.  And the heat disorients me.

Green Giant -- I'm not used to someone making me feel small.  Or "vertically
challenged," at least, since I'm not small in other ways--I'd make two of you by
weight, or at least one and a half.  Us orcs are like that, heavy bone and solid
muscle (not steamed!).  I reckon I cut a good figure out there.  And then YOU come
along looking emerald and elegant.  Pah. -- Korylus Vrae

Monster Mash -- Hmm, it would appear that mashed monsters are not suited to eating
with silver spoons.  More like... an iron fork, maybe -- Silver Slim

Lime Jhelum -- For some reason, one of the orderlies told me I was supposed to try to
run in deep jhelum, and suggested lime was a good flavor.  Cheese louise with orange
sauce!  WHAT a bad idea. -- Rock Hardman
P.S.  If it was meant for a JOKE, someone should have EXPLAINED it to me.  What am I,
some kind of mental giant to pick up all these tricky concepts?

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
