                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So there you have it, Ventriie.  Scorn the column, lose the title.  Scorning it
is even worse than ignoring it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZUKAL.  Too bad, DARK WARDS, but SERPENTS 
HOLD 3 was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for RECOIL?  SERPENTS HOLD 3's 
proud of him after beating DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and getting 17 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  BODY LANGUAGE got smashed by CLARISSA TEAL, and lost 7 points!  Oh, 
wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all ZUKAL.  He got the most 
challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, VENTRIIE must be pretty gutsy!  He 
challenged the Duelmaster from BLUE MOON.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  JED TARRAN DAPP stopped VENTRIIE dead in his 
tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of BLUE MOON must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  
What kind of warriors are DARK WARDS?  BLUE MOON, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZUKAL ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What a bummer!  BO RHAP got wasted by BLAMMO!  But with a 
10-12-0, I guess QUEEN aren't too bummed.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
