                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     First, I want to go on record as saying that Alarond the Scribe is an ass and a
liar.  I have never been falling down drunk in my life, and especially not at the
Swinging Aardvark.
     Second, I want to know what the HECK the fans are thinking to vote BRAID as Most
Popular!  That loser!
     Third, well, of course I'm duelmaster.  About time.

                                     Gastaigne

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in RODEKI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for TANTRUM YOGA?  
COLOR ME SUAVE's proud of him after beating BRAID and getting 14 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  BRAID got smashed by TANTRUM YOGA, and lost 11 points!  Oh, 
wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all RODEKI.  He got the most 
challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Was that a tear I saw in JELLO KNUCKLES' 
eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't GASTAIGNE fit to be tied!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  OUTTA PHASE was RODEKI's most avoided team.  Is there 
some award for that?  I don't know what SHREDDERS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from OUTTA PHASE, that's fer sher.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All RODEKI 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 gotta leave.  RODEKI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Shredders and Outta Phase -- Welcome to Rodeki.  Bummer timing for you, that only one
can enjoy the benefits of uncharteredness, but it's nice to have some new blood in
town. -- Suave

SRV -- I'm done with the ridiculous bloodfeuds.  I'd've gone younger, but (1) I
wasn't sure the Echo could take you, and (2) I have no scruples. -- Suave

We salute the tourney participants, but we won't name names, in order to protect the
unfortunate. -- Harby and the Delvers

Why do you ask me? -- I dunno, maybe because I think you have the answer?  Or just
because you're there? -- Fellerman

Armored Echo -- Ear plugs. -- Elifas Kont

Sheen -- You're a pretty little thing.  Dinner tonight? -- Igor Jones, known for his
smooth lines
