                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I do not know what happened to my last DM Column.  Is Hal on his hungry routine
again?  Or is The Commission merely discriminating against women--especially women
Duelmasters?  Or, could it be, surely not, that I forgot to write one?  Hmmmmmmmmm.
     Somehow or another, I have been lucky to defeat Binkly four times for this
crown.  (Our record is 4-1)  I am not sure I will be so lucky on a sixth meeting.
Perhaps I should avoid?  Shucks, perhaps I should avoid ALL those bloodthirsty
Deathtonguers?
     A characteristic of Consortium teams is to periodically list the starting stats
of the current roster.  Of course, the stats are arranged numerically to protect the
integrity of our designs.  Yeah, sure.  Anyway, here are we Fandils:
ST   5,9,13,15,16
CN   6,9,9,13,15
SZ   11,12,13,13,13
WT   10,16,17,20,21
WL   9,9,16,17,19
SP   3,10,11,11,13
DF   7,8,10,10,11
     Now that all is revealed, come and get us!  I shall not be challenging next time
as Duelmaster.  That gives the mighty Technogeek the opportunity to challenge as he
sees fit.  He is a fine and devious manager, so I am probably in trouble.  We shall
see.
          Anna Beatrice, Duelmaster IV

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ARDIVENT.  MVP award for SIS?  FANDILS' 
proud of her after beating TANIA PARK and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  TANIA PARK got smashed by SIS, and lost 6 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  ANNA BEATRICE stopped BETTY dead in hers tracks!  Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  DEATHTONGUE was ARDIVENT's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what FANDILS' been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from DEATHTONGUE, that's fer sher.  
Can BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' MUNGO BURKE be more popular than me?  He was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARDIVENT ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  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.  ARDIVENT is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
