                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sorry about that, Ermine.  My goal was not to butcher my final real opponent.
Perhaps my fight against the Dark Arena this turn will provide you with a small
amount of satisfaction.
     I am an 11-11(1)-11-17-17-5-13 LU.  No bonuses, normal endurance and good
damage, EP mod/high Initiative learn favorites.  I had the mod/high part correct, but
I mistakenly thought that I liked the LS.  Live and learn.

Lapur Bisque

                                      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 THE BRUTE SQUAD, 
who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing ATALI like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ATALI 
was overcame by THE BRUTE SQUAD and drops 9 points.  Our battling duelmaster LAPUR 
BISQUE has managed to hold the title, fending off BELLDANDY's none too subtle 
advances.  Better luck next time, DARQUE FORCES.  An apple a day keeps the doctor 
away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid SHEWISH BUFFET, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does STORMCROWE really have that 
many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
DARQUE FORCES beats feet every time SHEWISH BUFFET smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
