                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     WooHoo, it's me, YaHoo WaHoo, I'm back!  I'm Back!  The boss contemplated
shutting me down because I'm at 30 FE, but I had a quick talk with him, and said,
hey, am I really a tourney warrior?   No, I'm not, so here I am defending the honour
of the throne.

Yahoo Wahoo
Useless Tool
Duelmaster of Trocar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TROCAR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, INNUK SHUK fought CHUN MING and gained 14 points and 
contributed to WORLD BLADES 15's 1-1-0.  CHUN MING has lost to INNUK SHUK, falling 15 
points, while helping make ASIAN INVASION a 1-3-0 turn.  This turn YAHOO WAHOO 
challenged LEVANDAR in what was TROCAR's Title bout.  Defending its title for another 
turn, YAHOO WAHOO kept TRADERS OF TROCAR's warrior, LEVANDAR, from claiming the 
throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  ASIAN INVASION has cause to stand tall, 
as they were TROCAR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided ASIAN INVASION stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was USELESS TOOLS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
TRADERS OF TROCAR's warrior LEVANDAR.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, VICTORIAN MANDARIN from SPARF! challenged up 19 
points to fight DESERT PEARL from the TRADERS OF TROCAR stable.  VICTORIAN MANDARIN 
perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it was overcame by DESERT PEARL and ended up 
with 72 recognition points.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in TROCAR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
