                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, it would appear that I have finally figured out how to deal with Belle
Issimo.  Or she's having an off day.  It could be the heat, some dogs--and
werewolves--don't handle heat well.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in LYRATILAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for BLUDDY HACKIT?  
THE BLUE HOTEL's proud of him after beating TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and getting 16 points. 
Talk about yer major upsets!  KOLTER NEETHE's match with KUNG-FU MASTER cost him a 
loss of 16 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think FENELLA 
JHEN should let THE LEAD PIPE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  
I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All LYRATILAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), free 
airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the tournament info 
sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
