                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Now, that fight WAS a surprise, Corky.  What were you thinking, to lose like
that?

                                    Bearfoot

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  DULLENS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, ARCANE ROYALTY 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by CARDOW HUNTERS!  Way to 
go CARDOW HUNTERS!  What was the name of that team who got 3-1-0 this turn for a 
total 7-6-0 you ask?  (Sure)  HOUSE CANNITH's their name, and fighting's their game!  
MVP award for GRIM LAUGHTER?  CARDOW HUNTERS' proud of her after beating PONDERING 
ANGYL and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  GRAY BEAR got smashed 
by MICKEY HANDS, and lost 11 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
BEARFOOT stopped CORKY dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Can CARDOW 
HUNTERS' BLACKBUCK be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
