                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I had almost completed my column when a random breeze just carried it away.  I
hope that isn't some kind of omen.

     Well after four battles against Pot of Gold I finally won, rather than not lose.
Small distinction to some (I'm looking at you Quasil), but meaningful to others.
     Nice to see that the Wall of Steels are the style to beat here in Malcorn.  So
far I've only matched up with one of the other three.  Always fun to see how you do
against your own style.
     Hopefully Chykarin will smile upon me again and you'll find me sitting once more
upon the Iron Throne as you read this.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for MALCORN.  MVP award for HAVOC?  TERMINUS' 
proud of him after beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT and getting 20 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  IN THE DARK's match with HONEYSUCKLE cost her a loss of 5 points!  
The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  POT OF GOLD knows 
this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think VARICK should let POT OF GOLD be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  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.  The warriors 
of RAINBOW CONNECTION must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do 
you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what TERMINUS' been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from RAINBOW CONNECTION, that's fer 
sher.  Like, is POT OF GOLD popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of 
MALCORN!  She's got a 10-8-0, is that good?  QUASIL must not be a good enough fighter 
to get in fair fights.  He challenged SOURWOOD.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, 
that's what they tell me.) I thought QUASIL showed great skill and promise when he 
bested SOURWOOD.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Sourwood -- I wouldn't blame any of your losses against me on incompetence.  Just on
cardio. -- Quasil

Honeysuckle -- I remember reading something about honeysuckles smelling sweet if you
break them open.  All I smelt was blood and sweat.  Maybe I need to clean my helmet
out. -- Morgue

     Couldn't hurt.

First beggars and an embezzler, now a thief.  Glad to do our part in crime reduction
in Malcorn.  We'll try harder to kill them next time. -- Havoc and Taedium

     Then we'd have to import more.

Quasil -- Today, just getting close to you makes me queasy. -- Sourwood
P.S.  It's probably the cats.

Morgue -- Cheese louise, you are NOT what I need today.  I know it's partly your
name, but the way you LOOM over me doesn't help a bit. -- Honeysuckle

Steve -- Bah.  You're a fool. -- Silver Ghost

Skittles -- If you'd had beer to go with it, I might've been interested. -- Bobcat

Morgue -- Yeah, once you get the crowd following you, they're faithful. -- Stonebow
