                       Reflections by the Champion of the Horn

     Today will be my final fight in Storm Rock.  It has been a pleasure, but it is
time to move on.  Hopefully my final fight will be with Azaghal, but he missed last
cycle.  It would be fitting to fight the next best warrior in the arena on my way
out!  Either way, I do hope to write one final column, but to do that, I need to win,
today!
     Time to run to a meeting.  Assur has way too many of those.  I just want to
fight!

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Oh, hi.  It's just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out STORM ROCK to
see what's new.  MVP award for DIRTY DIAPERS?  BASH BROS CHILDREN's proud of him
after beating OUT FOR A DUCK and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!
THE UPRIGHT MAN got smashed by PINCH BLISTER, and lost 18 points!  Don't you think
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think GAD should let AZAGHAL be Duelmaster for a
while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said STORM ROCK's
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  COLOR ME
SUAVE was STORM ROCK's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!
What kind of warriors are SENTINELS?  COLOR ME SUAVE, an easy team to beat if I ever
saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All STORM ROCK ever talks about is fighting!
Me, I'm more laid back.  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.  STORM ROCK is like such a dump, and you guys
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

     Debby wanted to do it, and I wanted to sit in a corner and pamper my broken
tooth, so I let her.  But!  Nine fights--we're bigger and better than Andorak and
closing in on Darkholm.  Ha!  No challenges, three avoids, no standbys.  Without
comment, because my mouth hurts, here are the fights.0

     OUT FOR A DUCK (83-275) (16-18-0,53) of BAD SIGNS fought DIRTY DIAPERS (38-5071)

1977 AMC Matador -- I was supposed to stay and terrorize you, but Assur says I have
to move to Primus.  Good bye. -- Shiny Penny

Moist Towelette -- You should join Shiny Penny and move to Primus, too! -- The
Upright Man

Almost Pretty -- Your ability to maintain your looks for so many years (and after so
many scars) is almost super natural. -- Arugula

Jello Knuckles -- Your really should wear armor, you know. -- Luc Starwalker

Pocket News -- A win!  Hopefully I'll get a lot more of those in the Home Guard. --
Ruth

Argula -- That would be best.  Other members of the staff produce the interior, and
they are deficient in imagination. -- Pocket News

Ruth Is Ruthless!
P.S.  This reporter was required to spend MUCH TOO LONG in the dentist's office, thus
