                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Convicted Assassin wasn't much of a challenge.  Or, as he styles himself,
the Convicted Murderer--he disclaims being a formal, paid assassin.  I'm not going to
argue the question, although I will say that I can understand murder more easily than
assassination.

                                    Jofre Mainz

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZENSU this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
BEYOND THE PALE is pushed out of top team by CAPTAIN PLANET, who came from 2nd with a 
4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, CORMEK DEANE fought FRATSFA SLAVE and gained 15 
points and contributed to BEYOND THE PALE's 3-2-0.  WIND has lost to MORDANT 
DESERTER, falling 11 points, while helping make CAPTAIN PLANET a 4-1-0 turn.  Our 
last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, and JOFRE MAINZ has 
made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With JOFRE MAINZ clearing the throne, BEYOND THE 
PALE of CARINA LINZ takes a proud seat as ZENSU's new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
recognition points.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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.  Always good to rest in ZENSU, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe
