                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     If I have to fight a standby, Karolvingar the Roving Demon will do.  He has
conversation, and sometimes he shares it.

                                    Fisher King

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUKAL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BLUE FUNK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SERPENT 2 put down 
BLAMMO, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has FISHER KING in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  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.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  BLUE MOON is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding BLUE MOON.  Indeed it was BREWERS.  Loose talk at 
the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after HUDSON.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games 
this week, it seems that CECIL BB posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized HUDSON.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand CECIL BB defeated 
HUDSON.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ZUKAL as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into 
a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani
