                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One of Sherlock's boys tells A Bad Lie, and I refute it out of hand.  Truly, the
truth, properly used, shall make me Duelmaster yet again.
     Ah, you will say, perhaps, that A Bad Lie is female?  That is the lie.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for BAIBAR, who flew up 22 points in the 
rankings after mashing ALVERNON STRONGAXE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was MELANJI, who dropped 18 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with VETERAN MERCENARY.  Our battling 
duelmaster KIRVINJ has managed to hold the title, fending off A BAD LIE's none too 
subtle advances.  Better luck next time, IS THAT A CLUE?.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VEASTIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
