                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hi all... even though it's a small crowd, just us and Jorja most weeks.  So, I
went and got an early invite for being so awesome!  I was hoping for one more
tournament before I went, I never quite got that TV I wanted.  Why was I so
dominating, you ask?  As ever, it's all in the numbers.  Mine were 17-3-9-19-15-10-
11, and I was born with Great damage and Expert Attack, and it turns out my favorite
weapon is the War Hammer, not the Halberd like I thought.  Now it's finally my
brother's turn to be Duelmaster!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRICORUS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for WINDSONG?  DARK HORSEMEN's proud of her after beating 
QUIZBOY and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  QUIZBOY's match with 
WINDSONG cost him a loss of 9 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause 
he's Number One!  THE SHARK'S MAN knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the 
Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  HANK stopped THE SHARK'S MAN 
dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  DARK HORSEMEN 
was TRICORUS' most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what 
VENTURE BROS.'s been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
DARK HORSEMEN, that's fer sher.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TRICORUS ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Like, who is this guy???  HANK gets sent to the Dark Arena, 
battles THE SHARK'S MAN, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet VENTURE BROS. manager is 
surprised!  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
