                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Looks like my tree branch parking days are over.  All I need to do is survive
and I'll be off to the Isle of the Eye.  The easiest way to survive a fight, of
course, is to not lose.  I've never minded changing spots and the forecast is sunny.
I'll stay away from the Sleepy House, since all the spots outside are likely already
taken.
     Win or Lose, if I survive my final fight will be in the Dark Arena.  Hopefully
Assur likes what the commission says after they do their Lord Protector analysis
workouts.  He says that report will determine whether my future as a gladiator will
continue.

                                      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, TERMINUS, but BLIND 
MELON was just too good to be stopped.  One team deserves special mention 'cause they 
moved up 1 after going 3-1-0.  Keep it up, THE GRAIL KNIGHTS!  MVP award for TAEDIUM? 
TERMINUS' proud of him after beating KILLER and getting 30 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  KILLER's match with TAEDIUM cost him a loss of 21 points!  Like BLIND 
MELON's NO RAIN is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster STOLEYOURSPOT!  Was 
that a tear I saw in NO RAIN's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't 
STOLEYOURSPOT fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  THE GRAIL KNIGHTS was MALCORN's 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what TERMINUS' been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from THE GRAIL KNIGHTS, 
that's fer sher.  Can GREENWARDENS' BADGER be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MALCORN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  BADGER bloodfeuded (is that a word?) RAITH for revenge over 
some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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
