                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Pam Demonium was rather pleased with herself.  Even though the giant
Thanksgiving event was an unmitigated disaster, thanks mostly to the appearance of
the zombie turkeys, she was at least assured of never being forgotten, as the
Duelmaster of the arena when that fateful day had occurred.  Furthermore, she managed
to retain her title in a heated battle with For The Godlings.
     All in all it was a pretty good deal for her.  And she had started getting
requests for interviews and even an offer from one writer to put together a play
called the Thanksgiving Day Massacre.  It was quite flattering and more than a little
interesting.  Plus the potential for a big payday at the end of it all was very real.
Worst case, she would get to go to some impressive events and openings and whatnot.
     One of the stipulations was that she get a the writers a chance to see one of
the undead turkeys.  Fortunately, one of the fast moving beasts had fallen into a
large pot and trapped itself.  So it was currently locked in one of cages in the Dark
One's menagerie.  It would be easy enough for her to arrange for her meeting in the
guildhouse and get the chance to show off the reanimated poultry.
     One of the younger guild members, Rue Lerohell, interupted Pam's ponderings.
     'Hey Pam -- want to go do some morningstar practice?'
     'Not just now.  I'm working out a few things.  Like mainly how the heck did that
zombie magic affect the turkeys?'
     Rue shrugged, 'Huh.  Still going on about the boring turkeys.  I didn't even get
a drumstick.'
     Pam waved her away.  That really was the oddest thing.  Why did the turkeys
reanimate?  That magic seemed to be pretty specific.  Why just the turkeys and why
not any of the other animals in the cooler or something?  It just seemed very
peculiar.
     She took a stroll down to the kitchen, passing the servant's quarters, dining
hall and storerooms.  The kitchen was at the lower level of the guild, built so that
the cooler was cut into the stonework and would keep perishables cold and fresh.  She
poked her head in -- nothing alive in there.
     Pam went back into the hallway.  She kept going and then decided to take the
stairs down to the under-cellars.  One was used for storage and the other was the
guild crypt.  THAT seemed promising.  The crypt wasn't far from the kitchens...
Maybe that was where the zombie aspect played in.
     She had been down to the crypt several times, looking at all of the names of the
dead from their large and ancient guild.  There were quite a few.  But this time
something was different.
     One of the stone lids on one of the sarcophagi was ajar.  The name on the lid
read Malevolence -- one of the Angels of Pain warriors who had died way too young.
Pam hesitated, then turned to go for assistance.
     Out of the darkness lumbered a hulking shape, reaching for her!
     'BRAAAAAINS!!!' It bellowed.
     Pam ducked under her onrushing foe and sprinted.  Turkey zombies were one thing.
     This was the real deal!

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARVAT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but ANGELS OF PAIN really goofed with their 0-0-0.  
The guys at LEGION OF SOULS like really pulled together to get a 2-3-1 this turn, 
moving up by 4.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, THE WALKING DEAD!  
'Cause they got 4-1-1 and moved up to 8th!  MVP award for RUNECLAW?  DRAGON RIDERS' 
proud of her after beating RUE LEROHELL and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  STRYKKER got smashed by KAMI FLAUGE, and lost 15 points!  Like 
NOTORIOUS' FOR THE GODLINGS! is sweating since it got challenged by Duelmaster PAM 
DEMONIUM!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  PAM DEMONIUM stopped FOR THE 
GODLINGS! dead in its tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said ARVAT's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of DEATH BY DESIGN must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
DEVIL ADVOCATES' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
DEATH BY DESIGN, that's fer sher.  Can THE WALKING DEAD's BRAINS MCGEE be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  It was kind of sad, seeing old MAY MONN stumbling around the arena, 
before BRAINS MCGEE finished her off.  Oh well!  What a bummer!  THESEUS got wasted 
by BONE GNASHER!  But with a 5-9-0, I guess LOST LEGENDS aren't too bummed.  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 gotta leave.  ARVAT is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
