                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am on retreat and must rest and pray.  Hence, my column will be very short.
Besides, I will probably not be here next time because Anchorman, Oliver, and Bone
Mill are just plain too good for me.  I must do penance. Lots of penance.  Good luck
to all.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ARDIVENT.  Too bad, FANDILS, but WOE TO 
WHITECHAPEL was just too good to be stopped.  What was the name of that team who got 
4-1-0 this turn for a total 1279-949-61 you ask?  (Sure)  DEATHTONGUE's their name, 
and fighting's their game!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number 
One!  BONE MILL knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think 
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think BROTHER JEROME should let BONE MILL be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of FANDILS must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DEATHTONGUE?  FANDILS, an easy team to beat 
if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is BONE MILL 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARDIVENT!  He's got a 14-8-0, 
is that good?  People were asking me did UP FROM THE SEA REALLY challenge BAXTER?  
(all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but BAXTER wants me to write about it since he was subdued by UP FROM 
THE SEA.  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.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Greetings One And All to Ardivent, The Arena Of The Red Sands.  May your stay be long
and prosperous.  Live long. -- Fandil The Wise

Ruthless Jaywalker -- You need to be much more careful about your wondering ways.
However, I like beating ruthless people just to make myself feel better.  Yes, thank
you.  I feel much better today. -- Mildred Leona

Fran Bran -- Girls just wanna have fun, but you have to let me, you know?  I want the
experiences, but you may be way too experienced for me. -- Yvonne (whining about
losing again)

Bone Mill -- All I can think of to say is woe to Whitechapel.  And I really really do
like white chapels. -- Brother Jerome

Mollie Scott -- I hope you don't always stay blue.  I like valley gals. -- W.D. Purdy

Errata -- Nice point turn, you rascals.  Fandils know how to avoid.  (wink) -- WOF

Khisanth -- Now you be very gentle to the boy wizard, Oz, over there in North Fork in
that Turf War, you hear? -- Fandil The Wise

W.D. Purdy -- You're definitely a slippery character.  I couldn't seem to lay a blade
on you. -- Mollie Scot

Oliver -- I say, old chap, do you eat olives?  I just wondered, what? -- Bingo Little

Fear Vector -- Is that like, hmm, like being a sort of flea that bites and transmits
infectious fear?  Sounds icky. -- Katerina Collin

Shatnquitminife -- Maybe not, but have you considered spelling lessons? -- Lila Deane

Elmo -- Right.  Elmo.  That's supposed to mean something?  Or is it just your name?
I mean, I could play the word-association game, but if it means some particular
thing, I wouldn't need to, would I? -- Marci Foote
