                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, this time it was the expected rematch with Deano of Mark's Party.  With
him knowing all his favorites and me just being the same as always, that was
definitely a big advantage for Deano.
     Fortunately, while the battle was a little harder, I whallopped him again
anyway.  Leaving me with a ST as my only real competitor for this coming turn.  While
I could potentially lose, I'm not expecting it.  I'll be ready to rock and roll.
     Turns out Deano is managed by JE, who my manager still gives props to for
lending him his "SUV" while he was in "Milwaukee."  I'm not sure what a suv is or
where this Milwaukee place is, but apparently my manager cut out from the tournament
there to go to the zoo.  Weird.
     In any case...

I'm here, I am Duelmaster and I am...

Lucky Devil

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MALCORN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, AXEL fought BADGER 
and gained 19 points and contributed to CRUCIAL TAUNT's 2-3-0.  OGRE has lost to 
WREN, falling 12 points, while helping make CRUCIAL TAUNT a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending 
his title for another turn, LUCK DEVIL kept CRUCIAL TAUNT's warrior, SABBATH, from 
claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that Drake's Barbecue uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the MARKS PARTY 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on MALCORN, what are you afraid of? 
And avoiding MARKS PARTY more than any other team we find THE DEVIL'S OWN.  MALCORN, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that MALCORN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Blackoak had his try. -- the rest of the Greenwardens
