                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All the work again!  Duelmaster, chartered recognition leader, popularity
leader, favorite, I'm being run ragged!  Come on, somebody, get up here!
     I've got to wonder about Gabogool.  Only six regular-arena fights, and the
steward called it an "experts' battle."  Hidden tourney fights?  I'm not knocking
that, if it's true, but I do get a little tired of it sometimes.

                                   Fenster Golly

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ALJAFIR 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, TOBIT OPPAT fought 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and gained 23 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY's 4-1-0.  
TEENIE WHOPPER has lost to MORRIS ORMRAN, falling 12 points, while helping make 
MISSION: EARTH! a 0-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, FENSTER GOLLY 
kept ALJAFIR's warrior, CONVICTED ASSASSIN, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Vile Vizier uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Congratulations go out to MIDDLE 
WAY, with DEBRA ELSITH revenging a bloodfeud against JIMI APPENDIX of BODY OF MUSIC.  
A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the 
fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, ALJAFIR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ALJAFIR, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ALJAFIR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
