                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Now where is that fire hydrant that we call The Plague?  I have business to
attend to rather quickly!!!
     Amazing how barkabout is fair play... our rematch was quite fun I must say!  I'm
giving serious thought to changing my name to Eight Pawz or Twelve Pawz, because I'm
sure Angel of Arkham would attest to pawz hitting him from every direction last turn.
     Ah, the thrill of victory and the agony of my feet, er pawz!
     Tyefoon... yeah, you....  I'm coming for you this turn!  We have three fights
with one another already, and hopefully the fourth will be just as entertaining.  Who
IS the top Parry-Strike???!!!  The Wait gets my second challenge.

Until then....
Same doggy time,
Same doggy place,
Same doggy channel,
Your Duelmaster,
Four Pawz

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KATI-TEI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  WANDERERS turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 
2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SKITZOID SNOOPY win a 
fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SKITZOID SNOOPY beat SYKLONE SEQUEL 
and SYKLONE SEQUEL lost 19 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  FOUR PAWZ challenged 
TYEFOON TURMOIL for KATI-TEI's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as TYEFOON TURMOIL takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but 
why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, KATI-TEI?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  THE STORM FRONT, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
it looks like THE PLAGUE avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, TYEFOON TURMOIL was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I 
can give a little credit to OLD YELLER of DA DOG POWNDAZ for challenging up by 23 to 
MARLIN REEVE.  OLD YELLER lost to get 8 points of recognition.  And we have ANGEL OF 
ARKHAM in a challenge, going down 14 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought 
ANGEL OF ARKHAM showed great skill and promise when she defeated BALIN CHANE.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KATI-TEI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in KATI-TEI to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens

do without it. -- Marlin Reeve
