                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I WAS going to tell you all about some more strange occurances in our
Guildhouse, but I have to pre-empt your regularly scheduled column to complain a
little about all the bugs that are infesting the DM office in the arena.  They are
EVERYWHERE.
     Now, they are not bugs like I'd think of--little insects--but they are small
bits of metal and colored material.  I found several of them a few weeks ago and had
one of the guild maintenance people come and look at them.  He called them 'bugs.'
According to him, they are listening devices used on another world to spy on other
people.  He said that anything that I said while in the Duelmaster's office would be
heard and recorded in another location!
     At first I couldn't think who would want to listen to everything I said in my
spare time, and then I realized--it was those lousy squirrels!  They are all over the
place.  Always peeking out from behind columns or watching when I work out.  It's
really very creepy.
     Fortunately, I did think of a way to get even.  I kept talking about my master
plan to tank out in armor and try an all out parry strategy when I fought last week.
I talked a LOT about it.  So when I stepped out on the sands and fought Sir
Veillance, he was prepared for a long, slow fight.  Instead I whopped him upside the
head right out of the gate and that was all she wrote.  He woke up wondering what
happened.
     In the meantime, we hired what they call a 'bug sweeper' and he came and found
all the bugs and removed them from my office.  He also gave me what he called a
'scrambler' in case they try it again.
     So everyone keep your eyes out.  The Squirrels are EVERYWHERE!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to SAVAGE HORDE, as they are pushed from the coveted top 
team spot by the DEVIL ADVOCATES stable.  A stormcloud is brewing over the LEGION OF 
SOULS guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team 
to the Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 1-4-0 outing, NOTORIOUS has advanced 4 
places in the rankings.  DEVIL ADVOCATES is no joke as it posted a 5-0-0 week 
advancing from 3rd place to 1st place.  Hey everybody, watch out for BRISTOL, who 
flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing MEGABUCKS like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
IRONWOLF was overcame by BOGRUNT and drops 18 points.  Going for the gusto and coming 
up with aught but bloody knuckles was SECRET SQUIRRELS' SIR VEILLANCE, who was turned 
away from the Duelmastership by PAM DEMONIUM.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that DEVIL ADVOCATES was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of DEVIL ADVOCATES' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause DEVIL ADVOCATES beats feet every time DEVIL ADVOCATES smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, FOR THE 
GODLINGS! would be president.  Although it may be a contest it doesn't want to win.  
DEVLIN DE SEGIZE of DEVIL ADVOCATES had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 8 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought DEVLIN DE SEGIZE showed great 
skill and promise when he overcame BRAINS MCGEE.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  We might as well mark the passing of 
EVILKISSER, who was relatively new to the arena at 4-1-0.  Probably killed before his 
first shave.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, FREY was mashed by SORCOR, 
who let FREY know that killing members of LIVESHIP TRADERS is a no-no.  Congrats to 
SHAGGOTH for revenging the death of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding LEN a 
bit of dirt).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, LEN was mashed by SHAGGOTH, 
who let LEN know that killing members of LOST LEGENDS is a no-no.  Here's some 
advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the 
Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
