                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Now this is a huge surprise to be here.  I thought I might get a chance to fight
Kith, but I never thought he would not even fight.  So here I am the top dog here in
Veastian and I can only think of getting myself prepared for the Grand Tourney in
October.  How weird is that?  Good luck to everyone next turn and hopefully a few
more competitors show up!
     Fight Well,
          Duelmaster Plastic Man

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out VEASTIAN to see 
what's new.  The guys at DISCIPLES OF PAIN like really pulled together to get a 0-0-0 
this turn, moving up by 3.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, MELODY 
MAYHEM!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 2nd!  MVP award for EXIT?  MELODY 
MAYHEM's proud of it after beating RUWANA and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  RUWANA got smashed by EXIT, and lost 5 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  PLASTIC MAN stopped VETERAN MERCENARY dead in his tracks!  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?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  VEASTIAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

It's a surprise to find that the top-ranked active gladiator today is at 57 points!
Not to put down Plastic Man, but it IS a surprise.

Only six fights TOTAL today, one in the Dark Arena.  And we went three-two, I think.
(You can't expect me to do math in my HEAD, can you?)  It'll do, though.  Nobody
DIED, after all. -- Ruwana
