                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Ghost of Eldrad, a surprisingly material phenomenon, cannot long keep me
down.  About seventeen seconds.  Then I spring up and graduate.  I am embarrassed to
admit that I seem to be Born to Scum.  Very low, very low, with a dagger and no
tactics.  I was hoping for better.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for DULLENS.  MVP award for CORKY?  
BLACKTHORNE's proud of him after beating BEARFOOT and getting 24 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  BEARFOOT's match with CORKY cost him a loss of 7 points!  Our last 
turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KOO KOO KUNG FOO, and ANVIL has made the 
way for a new Duelmaster!  CORKY of BLACKTHORNE takes ANVIL's place.  (But seriously, 
who could ever take the place of ANVIL?  Oh, all right.) Who was the wiseguy that 
said DULLENS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Yellow Dog Tavern?  Don't look 
at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  MEGAMANAGER (NOT) of DULLENS wasn't planning on killing LAUGHTER 
REDKNIFE, I bet.  Now it has to worry about being Bloodfeuded, and getting put on 
lists...  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's 
what!!!   
     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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

We salute the tourney participants, even though it's called a mail-in and was not
one. -- Jorja and the Cardow Hunters
P.S.  I don't see anyone young and likely to return to Dullens there.  Too bad.

Who let the Lost Potato Farmer bring his pitchfork into the arena?  That thing's a
menace. -- Bearfoot

Of course I was savage with the Tex Impersonator.  I don't like deception, and
deception is what he's all about. -- Laughter Redknife

Corky -- Drat.  I would've liked to bite you, but I couldn't CATCH you. -- Wolfdog

If that is the Captain of the Guard here in Dullens, I hope he's got good
lieutenants. -- Blackbuck
