                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One thing about graduation, this will be, positively, the last time I have to do
"a few words from the top."  All gods be thanked for that.

                                    Erbin Goetz

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ROCANIS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as INCONSISTENT FURY is pushed out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 20, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, DEBRA FARIN fought SMASH and gained 
13 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 20's 3-1-0.  SMASH has lost to DEBRA FARIN, 
falling 6 points, while helping make THEM a 0-2-0 turn.  And all eyes were on BACK 
this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ROCANIS has a new victor!  
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Mylar's 
uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  INCONSISTENT FURY has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ROCANIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided INCONSISTENT FURY stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was GET.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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 ROCANIS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
