                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I must say this is quite a surprise.  Belle Issimo, for whatever reason you
didn't fight this turn, thank you.  I've never graduated a slasher before and figured
it'd be awhile before I did.  Gaining the title puts me a lot closer to that goal.
Now if you'll just sit out this turn as well, maybe I can actually get my invite.
:p.  Col. Mustard, you are one serious teacher.  I'd wish you luck in making
Duelmaster soon, but since two of my other guys are in contention I'll have to just
say good luck getting an invite.  With any luck, I'll write another of these the next
time around.

R.L.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to DARK FORCES, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE MIDDLE 
WAY 4 stable.  Our battling duelmaster RAVING LUNATIC has managed to hold the title, 
fending off COL. MUSTARD's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, GOTTA 
GET A CLUE.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, BILLY CLUB went after ANEURISM, who was 
higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust settled, BILLY CLUB bested ANEURISM.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 LYRATILAN 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.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Col. Mustard -- I wish I could have returned the favor on the skill learns.  You
apparently know all I can teach you. -- Raving Lunatic

Fenella Jhen -- Our matchups always make for an exciting fight. -- Aneurism

Sue Churz -- I'm thinking having three times your fight experience played a big role
in the outcome.  In all honesty, I'm pretty mediocre. -- Kraken

Jeez, I hate losing to a stand-in.  Noble Assassin is a serious oxymoron. -- Aikido

     This is true, but it's an Andorian thing.

All -- Good to be back in Lyratilan.  This was my original arena and still my
favorite.  I've got a good solid crew here and one of these days I'll get around to
asking RSI to send my fifth warrior along. -- The Walkin' Dude, mgr. Dark Forces

     Good to have a name for you. -- the Editor

Aneurism -- Ah, definitely a dark force.  Although not, perhaps, as dark as that
blade to the throat. -- Fenella Jhen

Billy Club -- Hmm, I forgot to set aside enough for the cover charge.  Bad planning
on my part. -- Urbin Yates

The Shiftyeyed Volunteer asked for that one!  Smirked, made a comment about my
mother, who is a saint, smirked again and twitched his eyes... so I whammed him a
good one. -- Isek Krol

If that's a Fratsfan Noble, then there is a sad falling off of warrior qualities
among the Fratsfans.  A good body of troops undone by luxury. -- Kolter Neethe
P.S.  Besides, he isn't even of the Fratsfan race!

People actually TRUST that Scribe?  Why? -- Tol Voram
