                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I will most likely get two more arena fights, but Assur will decide when and
where those fights happen.  He's got big goals for me and my teammates.  So as much
as I'd like to stay and give Kill Kitten a final thrashing, I'm off to prepare for
Assur's 'Big Plans.'

Welcome back to Moribund and the Heavymetal Kids.  Impressive ID Number for Uranium!
-- Crushing Bratz
P.S.  Assur says I'm supposed to close my Column with a quote from the past:
          "The Wimp is anything but."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TALCAMA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  MEATH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MERCURY and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, URANIUM put down FINN MACCOOL, 
causing him to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, CRUSHING BRATZ has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The 
city has turned out in honor of AARON, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if 
exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 
7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  ARDUIN GRIMOIRE is feared.  This 
much I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of NEXT GENERATION last week.  Busy avoiding ARDUIN GRIMOIRE?  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  SPOONIE G take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in TALCAMA.  At the gambling halls I have started to 
bet money on STROMTIUM 90.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his challenge 
this turn against DIP!  To be sure the battle was a losing one.  But I like to think 
STROMTIUM 90 at least gave DIP a run for his money.  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that HYDROGEN posted a challenge against 
the more highly recognized POG MO THOIN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
HYDROGEN beat POG MO THOIN.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Many townsmen have begin to remark over the fact that after one 
more round of duels CENTER FOR OLDS' Bloodfeud against KILL KITTEN will have expired. 
Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies 
against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in TALCAMA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into 
a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani
