                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The man is of average height and weight, with close-cropped brown hair and a
clean-shaven jaw.  A Harkeny by birth, he is clothed simply and conservatively.  On
casual inspection, there is nothing noteworthy at all about him.  A closer look
reveals his piercing, appraising grey eyes.  And though his face may smile, his eyes
never join in the mirth.

     "Obregon informed me that a column by the Duelmaster is expected of me.  Ironic;
as a fixer, a problem-solver, a 'hatchet man,' I am low-key by nature.  I don't
advertise.  I'm the last thing people see before the problem is solved.
     "At any rate, my stable-mates and I have both a long and short history in
Kaltos, having been put on ice for over a decade.  Obregon put together our motley
crew in one of his darker moods and put me in charge.  They're not bad for a group of
cutthroats, loners, and psycopaths.
     "It looks like Tremors is the only non-commission foe I can face, so he'll have
to do.  We've faced each other twice before and each won once.  Time for the
uncomforably-named 'rubber' match.  I have little doubt that he aims to skewer me on
his pike, and my little sword has his name on it.  It's entirely possible that one of
us doesn't live through this...
     "And that's the way I like it."

-- Kal Voort, the Hatchet Man

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KOLACT to see 
what's new.  MVP award for WIZARDS!?  ABOMINATION's proud of him after beating 
TREMORS and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  TREMORS' match with 
WIZARDS! cost him a loss of 14 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think HATCHET MAN should let LIA HOBERN be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said KOLACT's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at Don Corleone's?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  BACON MAKIN' was the most avoided team.  Is a 82-59-5 
record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why ROGUES GALLERY's been 
avoiding BACON MAKIN' so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is 
TREMORS popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of KOLACT!  He's got a 
19-11-3, is that good?  STICK must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair 
fights.  He challenged TOM.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell 
me.) I thought STICK showed great skill and promise when he beat TOM.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KOLACT 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!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  KOLACT is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
