                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Farewell, Malcorn.  I can't exactly say it's been fun, as most of my fights left
both me and my armor a bloody mess.  I know I don't have it in me to be competitive
on the Isle, but this immortality deal should give me the time to finish all these
books I've been collecting.  And if the Chaos gates open, I'm sure I can hold it
until the real warriors show up.  You all know I can take a beating.
     Oh, and cardio.  You all need more cardio.  Run through the Shewish Forest in
plate armor or something.

-- Lord Protector Quasil

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in MALCORN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, BLIND MELON, but 
TERMINUS was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for STOLEYOURSPOT?  BASH BROS 
PARKING's proud of him after beating CHANGE and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  CHANGE got smashed by STOLEYOURSPOT, and lost 9 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  QUASIL stopped SLEEPY HOUSE dead in his tracks!  
I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of BLIND MELON must 
be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that 
I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why TERMINUS' been avoiding BLIND MELON so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can BASH BROS PARKING's STOLEYOURSPOT 
be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  
See if I ever talk to HAVOC again!  NO RAIN was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph! 
If HAVOC can't beat a warrior 21 points below himself, that he CHALLENGED, he oughtta 
be selling food in the stands!  RAITH must not be a good enough fighter to get in 
fair fights.  He challenged TREESHADOW.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what 
they tell me.) I thought RAITH showed great skill and promise when he killed 
TREESHADOW.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MALCORN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  SIR TOO DUMB returns from 
the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his THE GRAIL KNIGHTS teammates...  It was 
kind of sad, seeing old TREESHADOW stumbling around the arena, before RAITH finished 
him off.  Oh well!  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     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
