                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     An unbalanced match for you, Singalek, but a worthy effort even so.  I salute
you.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in CHIMLEVTAL!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, THE KINDRED, 
but MIDDLE WAY 7 was just too good to be stopped.  PRIEST OF KORIN like really fought 
hard to move up to 6th from 9th.  Way to go!  What was the name of that team who got 
4-1-1 this turn for a total 126-240-3 you ask?  (Sure)  MIDDLE WAY 7's their name, 
and fighting's their game!  MVP award for OMBERT QURL?  MIDDLE WAY 7's proud of him 
after beating JACK SPARROW and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
JACK SPARROW got smashed by OMBERT QURL, and lost 9 points!  Was that a tear I saw in 
SINGALEK's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't KOLUM MAROD fit to be 
tied!  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?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I see ARGUS FEYD got killed by OSWELL QUIRN of MIDDLE WAY 7.  Now I want 
to see some serious Bloodfeud action out there!  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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
