                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I didn't mean to kill Figaro, but he leaped out in front of me on that blind
curve just past the arena, and what could I do?  My brakes are good, and I wasn't
going more than 45, and I DID honk as I came to the curve.  Truth be told, I didn't
even see him till I felt this horrible bump under my wheels.  Never go out at night
dressed in black.

                                      Runabout

P.S.  And don't forget to change the oil regularly!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in CLIFFHOME this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as TEAM FLOYD is pushed out of top team by JINDA-BAN, who came from 2nd 
with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, WALDO fought HARANDUR and gained 23 points 
and contributed to BOY O'S' 2-0-0.  HARANDUR has lost to WALDO, falling 17 points, 
while helping make JINDA-BAN a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, 
RUNABOUT kept CLIFFHOME's warrior, KUNG-FU MASTER, from claiming the throne.  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The 
Choking Ogre?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
