                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Compared to the Venomous Concubine, the Veteran Mercenary is almost easy.  Works
for me.

                                     Vaistinie

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in VEASTIAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, THE FAMILY, but 
WARRIORS OF STEEL was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for TORN CLOTH?  IS 
THAT A CLUE?'s proud of her after beating MELANJI and getting 18 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  BAIBAR's match with JEREMIAH BROADBLADE cost him a loss of 11 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think VAISTINIE should 
let KHALHUMS DWARF be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the 
wiseguy that said VEASTIAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Welcome Wench?  
Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
