                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You're a parasite, Dont.  You live off the labors of others, don't pay any rent,
and just sit around bashing people and looking smug.  Ha.  I think I'm about through
with worry about YOU.
     It's unlikely that I'll fight on the Isle, so my graduation details are
available if anyone wants to ask for 'em.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ZUWAYZA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to JESSIE'S SPUDS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
VISIONS V2 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for TELBIN, who flew up 17 points in the 
rankings after mashing DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KELVIN was bested by 
SHARK NORMAN and drops 13 points.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost 
to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and MISSOURI WILDLIFE has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  
With MISSOURI WILDLIFE clearing the throne, BASH BRO HOUSEMATE of DONT PAY RENT takes 
a proud seat as ZUWAYZA's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  4 out of 
5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid SEINFELD, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does ZUWAYZA really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch MAN OR BEAST?'s act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from SEINFELD.  And who is this POCKET NEWS you ask, with 72 points and a 
10-6-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  DONT PAY RENT of BASH BRO HOUSEMATE had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge which he won.  
I thought DONT PAY RENT showed great skill and promise when he overcame POCKET NEWS.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ZUWAYZA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
