                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is almost with sadness that I depart this fine place.  Now that I have land,
I don't ever have to pay rent again!  I was fortunate to avoid the Admiral's wrath,
but I'm sure he'll be back soon enough.  The throne is up for grabs, I'm off to test
my mettle against the Dark Arena.

          -- Dont Pay Rent

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZUWAYZA.  Too bad, VISIONS V2, but THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for TRUE CRIME?  THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS' proud of him after beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR and getting 14 points. 
Talk about yer big time losers!  HUGS-N-KISSES got smashed by TAMBONE, and lost 5 
points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  BLACK ORC 
knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  The crowds were amazed 
this turn, as BLACK ORC killed the Duelmaster, DONT PAY RENT, leaving BASH BRO 
HOUSEMATE in mourning.  GRAVITRON gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean 
people might try to kill him, too?  I hear the top team insists all their warriors 
get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Our congratulations to Dont Pay Rent.  Maybe your Lord Protector lands will be a
rent-free dwelling on the Isle? -- Jorja and the Mags

All Is Revealed!  Secret Strategies of Rent-Free Living Exposed! -- Pocket News
P.S.  Inside story on page 6.

Eybee Skrewd -- Indeed. -- True Crime

I have flattened the Bumps of the Persistent Beggar, but I fear it will not be a
permanent "fix."  Still, it will be interesting and informative to study the pattern
of their return.  Scientific Knowledge will be advanced! -- Modern Phrenology

I will NOT tolerate the Mordant Desert camping in my model home!  He is a slob. --
House Beautiful
P.S.  "Slob" is the technical term among interior decoraters for someone who chooses
to live as he does.  A pig sty would be an improvement.

I suppose the Mordant Deserter is a place to start, but he wasn't impressive. -- The
Duelist

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
