                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I got here by defeating a standby?  And not even one of the top standbys,
either.  What is this arena coming to, closure?  It could happen.  Too bad I couldn't
have fought Viking.  But who'd've thought a Savage would go to the Dark Arena?  Ah,
well, perhaps I, too, will be graduating shortly.  One can hope.

                                        Flitter McGee

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZORPUNT 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, OLD MAN WINTER 
fought EASTERN BROWN and gained 10 points and contributed to BATTLEMANIA's 2-3-0.  
PENOK has lost to AIMER, falling 6 points, while helping make BATTLEMANIA a 2-3-0 
turn.  And not without some honor, SLIM SHADY now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of ZORPUNT.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  THE ASININE has cause to stand tall, as they 
were ZORPUNT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided THE ASININE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
BATTLEMANIA.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that TELLAR FLEET 
from KRILL CAVALRY was ZORPUNT's most challenged warrior this turn.  Building dreams 
on hope, FLESHHARROWER challenged up 31 points this turn to take on HOFFA from 
SAVAGES stable.  And now nobody knows where HOFFA is right now, after giving 
FLESHHARROWER 21 points worth of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind me.  In 
a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), IGGY POP challenged 
TELLAR FLEET today, facing a 27 difference in recognition.  Even though IGGY POP lost 
the fight, he at least came away with a gain of 6 points for challenging on of KRILL 
CAVALRY.  RICH CRANIUM of THE ASININE had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 12 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought RICH CRANIUM showed great 
skill and promise when he won victory over STONEFISH.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in ZORPUNT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
