                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All Hail Rocanis, greatest arena in all the land.  A title earned is better than
one gifted.  It's always a pleaser to be top dog.  Best of luck to all unless vs the
Inconsistant Fury.

                       Your DM,
                           Hal'igge Joyroc

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  
INCONSISTENT FURY now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for FORLIS HOOLER, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after 
mashing IEZA VON DRAKA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  IEZA VON DRAKA was beat by FORLIS HOOLER 
and drops 14 points.  Our battling duelmaster HAL'IGGE JOYROC has managed to hold the 
title, fending off BACK's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, GET.  4 
out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that 
location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
