                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You can learn something every day if you keep your ears and eyes open.  We
learned last turn that Missouri Wildlife is uncivilized.  Those were some low blows.
And now he's gone, so I can't even defend myself appropriately.
     I admit I'm here today not on my own merit, but because I've stuck around long
enough that those before me have gone away.  I admit that sometimes I've been a bit
delinquent with rent payments.
     But I am a nice guy.  I've read some of the magazines featured here to orphans.
While I'm not a huge fan, I have watched Seinfeld.  I've never questioned anyone's
humanity.  I always vote for candidates who protect the rights of Spuds.  And my
vision would be the same as John Lennon's.
     Everyone has faults and it is easy to pick on someone else's.  But please don't
judge me only by my faults...

Dont Pay Rent

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ZUWAYZA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Defending his title for another turn, DONT PAY RENT kept THE MAGNIFICENT 
MAGS' warrior, POCKET NEWS, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Drunken Ox 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the SEINFELD stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUWAYZA, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided SEINFELD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was MAN OR BEAST?. 
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was MAN OR BEAST?'s warrior 
WALTER PIDGEON.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a 
brave attempt, GARRET from VISIONS V2 challenged up 22 points to fight WALTER PIDGEON 
from the MAN OR BEAST? stable.  GARRET perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
defeated WALTER PIDGEON and ended up with 61 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  VISIONS V2 made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as they 
sent DAB1, with a record of 6-5-0, to DAB1 death.  Farewell, his.  ALCHEMIST'S 
MONTHLY has departed ZUWAYZA, leaving THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS without their 5-14-0 
warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  We'd 
like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who 
you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ZUWAYZA, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
