                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't know why the standbys keep trying to defeat me.  It isn't like they can
take the title, even if they win!

                                     Blhu Murther

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZUKAL!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for RAT CATCHER?  SEA 
DOGS' proud of him after beating LOW CUT BLOUSE and getting 22 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  KINGFISHER's match with LIP GLOSS cost her a loss of 14 points!  
And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
EIGHTH MATE.  Aren't SEA DOGS proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey, warriors get killed by other 
warriors, not by their manager sending them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with 
TIGHT BLOUSE's 4-0-1, HOT STUFF?  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

actually Karnhorn, probably enslaved BY the Fratsfans.  That makes it different. --
