                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Low and behold, I come back from an extended absence, C.H.S. hands me back my
rightfully deserved throne, with a couple of skills and an expert rating thrown in,
and lo and behold, all of a sudden, I'm just too good to stay around any longer.
Well, maybe my 69 political points has something to do with that.  Not sure if we'll
be back next turn, expecting to see two replacements, and it depends on their
potential as to whether this team will continue.  But I know you really want to know
about my particulars:

11(2)-15(1)-15-11(2)-18(1)-9-11 makes numbers for a dandy total parry, as my 31-17-1
record can attest.  In that time, I've learned 45 skills in addition to a meagre few
from stat raises, and I leave here with an Advanced Expert in Parry, Expert in
Decise, and close to an expert in Defence, although even if I were to turn out to be
mode across the board, I'd still only have a total of 74 skills right now.  My faves
are the Scimitar (never tried it due to Wit), with a Very Low Offensive Effort and
Activity Level, while learning Decise skills.

Now that I've told you that, I'm...

Open Sesame
Duelmaster Of Snowbound

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in SNOWBOUND!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for DOMJON?  DRUID'S 
GROVE's proud of him after beating EXTRUSION and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  INGLEMORT JULS' match with C.H.S. cost him a loss of 26 points!  Like 
DARK ARENA's SNOW DEMON is sweating since he got Dark Arena Challenged by Duelmaster 
ON MY WAY!  The crowds were amazed this turn, as SNOW DEMON killed the Duelmaster, ON 
MY WAY, leaving OPEN SESAME in mourning.  C.H.S. gets to be new Duelmaster.  But 
doesn't this mean people might try to kill it, too?  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  CRIMINAL MINDS was SNOWBOUND's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are OPEN SESAME?  CRIMINAL MINDS, an 
easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can 
MIDDLE WAY 6's GOBERT HINNY be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but 
is that really the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out C IS FOR 
COOKIE challenged KIRLA LORVIN.  After all, haven't OPEN SESAME and MIDDLE WAY 6 had 
a long standing duel in SNOWBOUND?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
KIRLA LORVIN wants me to write about it since she overcame C IS FOR COOKIE.  
Satisfied?  HOOPS must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  It 
challenged GOBERT HINNY.  8 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought HOOPS showed great skill and promise when it subdued GOBERT HINNY.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  LETTER B returns from the Dark Arena, 
maybe a "little upset" at its OPEN SESAME teammates...  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 gotta leave.  SNOWBOUND is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
