                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah yes, I was destined to sit here.  But when I enterd the throne room, I was
nearly overcome with the stench that hung in the air.  No doubt from the previous
occupent, Pitt.  Perhaps the worst warrior to step on the sands and managed by the
worst manager to ever mismanage a team.  He is obviously the stupidest person to ever
slack a jaw.  It is hard to believe that he even succeeded in getting a warrior this
far into the rankings, this fact solidified by his current warriors' records.  Barely
hanging in the 50% range.  Most would be disgraced by such performance, but he stands
with glee, proud and ignorent of his idiocy.  Maybe there is a chance the commission
can reverse his progress and send his team to the Knoblish Island Arena where he can
compete with the beginners and stand half a chance of legitimently winning a duel.  I
must confess that I am impressed to see that his warriors do survive, and not tip
over dead everytime that they are pummelled by myself or my teammates.  But he must
be thanked for giving such easy wins to my guild, via his dimwitted challenges, one
of which has seated myself upon this throne.  And for that fact I am told By the
mighty Gen. Ikillu that the Rake must be pardoned of all disgressions against me and
I am to thank him for his obtusiveness.  What the General wants, the General
receives, even against the judgement of many.  Now I shall gather a multitude of
skunks and march them through here in hopes to mask the aroma of the previous
occupent.-- Kobalt

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for NIATOLI ISLAND.  Like, THE SEWING CIRCLE 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by STORM BRINGERS!  Way to 
go STORM BRINGERS!  MVP award for TOBY?  RAVAGING LORDS' proud of him after beating 
DIRTY HOWEL and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  DIRTY HOWEL's match 
with TOBY cost him a loss of 20 points!  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, 
lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, and KOBALT has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  TEMPEST of 
STORM BRINGERS takes KOBALT's place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place 
of KOBALT?  Oh, all right.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  RAVAGING LORDS was the most avoided team.  Is a 269-262-23 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what STORM BRINGERS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from RAVAGING LORDS, that's fer sher.  Like, is 
THE MONGOL popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of NIATOLI ISLAND!  
He's got a 12-14-2, is that good?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think 
THE MONGOL feels about being challenged by DARK JOURNEY, 17 points above him?  Is 
this how STORM BRINGERS advances, by having their members (DARK JOURNEY) fight people 
that are really below them (THE MONGOL)?  TEMPEST must not be a good enough fighter 
to get in fair fights.  She challenged MONOLYTH.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, 
that's what they tell me.) I thought TEMPEST showed great skill and promise when she 
overcame MONOLYTH.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All NIATOLI ISLAND ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would 
like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
