                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Last turn's column:

Wooden Arrow, the title is yours for the taking.  Ah...yes, I know, you don't take,
so I still have a chance with a C.W. or a random with Darkbreath...I mean...
Blackwind.  In any event, I really am

                                                       Charismatic

This turn's column:

    Goodness!  And mercy, too.  What were you DOING to lose that, Charismatic?  Oh,
wait, classic style match...okay, it makes more sense now.  But still, the boss is on
the road, doing everything in a hurry in motels after exhausting days, and I don't
get a chance to do justice to this occasion.  So, ahem, how about if everybody makes
sure I'm here NEXT time so I can really do a proper column?

                                   Wooden Arrow

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  MALCORN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Uncool, STARBASE 5.  
I mean 1-4-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  Talk about yer major upsets!  SLAYVER's match with GREENGROVE cost him a 
loss of 3 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  WOODEN ARROW stopped M. 
CHARDINEE dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said MALCORN's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  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?  TRIPLE CROWN was the most avoided team.  Is a 
313-243-17 record really that scary?  I don't know what DARK CREATION's been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from TRIPLE CROWN, that's fer sher. 
Can DARK CREATION's NYARLATHOTEP be more popular than me?  He was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?  NYARLATHOTEP is being unfair.  He's challenged 
down 21 against FOREVER.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better 
shut up) Is this how DARK CREATION advances, by having their members (NYARLATHOTEP) 
fight people that are really below them (FOREVER)?  People were asking me did BOXXER 
REALLY challenge PUTRID CORPSE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) 
It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but PUTRID CORPSE wants me to write about 
it since it was overcame by BOXXER.  Satisfied?  XANE REAVER must not be a good 
enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged INDEMOS.  11 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought XANE REAVER showed great 
skill and promise when he beat INDEMOS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal! 
     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!  Quit laughing!  Just because ARKAIK 
SLAUTER had 4-7-0 was no reason for DARK CREATION to send him to the Dark Arena!  
Stop it!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
