                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, well, who would have thunk.  Big old me on top of the pile and after only
84 turns or so.  And, even more important the team has a winning record for the 1st
time in many, many years.
     I hope to stay on the throne, not get killed and leave well before my 100
fights. But only time will tell.
     Red Special, care for a rematch?

          Through the Window.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZUKAL.  Like, BLUE MOON had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by QUEEN!  Way to go QUEEN!  MVP award 
for CYONE?  BLUE MOON's proud of her after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 14 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  WILKERSON got smashed by GALILEO, and lost 
9 points!  Was that a tear I saw in CHANTAL's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  
And wasn't THROUGH THE WINDOW fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZUKAL ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many people 
were snickering when KING RAT killed PICASSO.  So he had a 7-19-0, that's no excuse!  
That was so totally rude when KING RAT wasted PICASSO.  I think all you warriors in 
ZUKAL should gang up on QUEEN!  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 gotta leave.  ZUKAL is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Those spy reporters!  I did NOT "put down" Mercury, I just defeated him.  He is still
entirely alive. -- Chantal
P.S.  Even though he's a dwarf and I'm an elf, I wouldn't go out of my way to kill
him.  Both of us being gladiators forms its own bond.

Three-two for us today, not bad, really.  My win over Mercury and two over standbys,
but they're still wins.  And the losses... eh.  They happen.  If our manager won't
pay attention, what can anybody expect? -- Chantal the Accepting
