                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Another day, another standby.  Is there some way I can cash in the political
points?

                                     Vaistinie

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for DANIEL SILVERLOCK, 
who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing KENSELJO like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
KENSELJO was beat by DANIEL SILVERLOCK and drops 16 points.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was VEASTIAN's M. CHARDINEE, who was turned 
away from the Duelmastership by VAISTINIE.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect 
the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the VEASTIAN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown
