                                 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.  And it's
a whopper.

                                    Kirvinj

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out VEASTIAN to see 
what's new.  What was the name of that team who got 3-1-0 this turn for a total 
19-11-1 you ask?  (Sure)  FAMOUS HURLERS' their name, and fighting's their game!  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  KIRVINJ stopped ALVERNON STRONGAXE dead in 
his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said VEASTIAN's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  ORDER was 
VEASTIAN's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what 
FAMOUS HURLERS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
ORDER, that's fer sher.  People were asking me did CYCLONE REALLY challenge BAIBAR?  
(all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but BAIBAR wants me to write about it since he was subdued by CYCLONE.  
Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bummer!  ALVERNON STRONGAXE got 
wasted by KIRVINJ!  But with a 20-29-1, I guess WARRIORS OF STEEL aren't too bummed.  
It was so gross when KIRVINJ of THE FAMILY killed ALVERNON STRONGAXE.  They should 
start making warriors use safer weapons, or more shields, or something...  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
