                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     To defeat M. Chardinee was neither surprising nor difficult.  The members of the
Chardinee Society tend to be predictable.  It hardly seems like a worthy fight for
the title here, but... so be it.

                                   Golden Stairs

P.S.  You know, I ended up on this team quite by accident.  I had neither the
inclination nor the wildwood skills to become a Warden of the Forest.  But if I
survive the arena, I will do my best to fill that role.

                                      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.  Like, GREENWARDENS 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by INK & STEEL RETRO!  Way 
to go INK & STEEL RETRO!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, INK & STEEL 
RETRO!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 1st!  MVP award for ETERNITY?  BLADES 
OF DOOM's proud of her after beating DUMP TRUCK and getting 13 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  DUMP TRUCK's match with ETERNITY cost him a loss of 9 points!  Our 
last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and GOLDEN STAIRS 
has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  SUNDOG of GREENWARDENS takes GOLDEN STAIRS' 
place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place of GOLDEN STAIRS?  Oh, all 
right.) Who was the wiseguy that said MALCORN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at 
The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  SERPENTS' HOLD was MALCORN's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what THE DEVIL'S OWN's 
been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from SERPENTS' HOLD, 
that's fer sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  MALCORN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Well, of course I defeated the Kung-Fu Master "narrowly."  He's a narrow man. --
Honeysuckle

The Venomous Concubine bit me.  I had to surrender so I could rush off and get the
antidote.  I don't think that kind of thing should be allowed in the arena. -- Sundog

Change -- I thought of many sarcastic things I could perhaps have said to you, but
really, all that seems called for here is a sincere, "Good fight." -- Blackoak

Luck Devil -- Yours, not mine.  Ouch. -- Wren
