                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My one big concern was that some tourney stud horse would pop up out of nowhere
and wax me.  Fortunately, while the first part of that fear is exactly what happened,
as Deano of Mark's Party materialized to get a title fight, not only did I not get
killed, but I took him out.
     Looks like I'll be fighting an immortal Deano again next turn.  That should be
more interesting, I think.
     Too bad his name is so terribly lame.  Well, who am I to judge?  At least his
name isn't a typo.
     One more time, I'm here, I am Duelmaster and I am...
               Lucky Devil

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MALCORN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, WREN fought CHANGE and gained 18 points and contributed to 
GREENWARDENS' 3-2-0.  SLEEPY HOUSE has lost to SARA, falling 13 points, while helping 
make BLIND MELON a 2-3-0 turn.  Well done, MALCORN, the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most challenged warrior.  Perhaps LUCK DEVIL is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 
times.  DEANO challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone THE 
DEVIL'S OWN's warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and LUCK 
DEVIL remains MALCORN's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I 
have heard from unimpeachable sources that Drake's Barbecue uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  MARKS PARTY has cause to stand tall, as they 
were MALCORN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided MARKS PARTY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was THE DEVIL'S 
OWN.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, MALCORN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MALCORN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in MALCORN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Greenwardens -- Sorry for felling Blackoak, he seemed like a solid fellow.  You may
punish my young teammate, Fried Ogre, as you deem appropriate. -- Duskblood Pudding

Uh? -- Fried Ogre

Treeshadow -- Too bad they wouldn't let you bring a an umbrella.  I think it would
have helped. -- Eric

Wren -- It is good to have Orcs to kill in the arena. -- Ogre

Our congratulations to Deano. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Sara -- Well, you should have KNOWN I'd try to bite you, it's what I DO.  No reason
to get suddenly annoyed and beat up on me like that! -- Little Biter

Axel -- Damn, I thought you were a tree, and I was just going to stand quietly on
your shady side and... whammo.  Ouch. -- Treeshadow

Ogre -- Stupid beast.  I hope a whole FLOCK of birds comes along and commits a
nuisance on your head.  You've got it coming. -- Wren

Duskblood Pudding -- Uggh....  Horrible stuff. -- Ghost of Blackoak
P.S.  If golems have ghosts.

Change -- Yeah, change always does that for me.  And it wraps up an oh-fer turn for
us, too.  Oh, well. -- Badger
