                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Good try, won't fly, Commodus.  Impressive learning, though.

                                   Stelra Tirins

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ALJAFIR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for LUCIUS? 
GLADIATORS' proud of him after beating NORTH FORK RABBLE and getting 13 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  AURELIUS' match with CAPTURED ORC cost him a loss of 5 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think STELRA TIRINS 
should let COMMODUS be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was 
the wiseguy that said ALJAFIR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Vile Vizier?  
Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of DEATH INCARNATE 
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 FIELDS OF ELYSIUM's been avoiding 
DEATH INCARNATE so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can MIDDLE WAY's 
GRISHORT HURM be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?   
     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?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
