                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I see that you have fought some of my pack-mates, Cloudgazer, but you must
understand that they are merely ordinary dogs.  I am a purebred and superior.  I'm a
STAR.

                                        Lassie

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail COLLUSION COVE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed 
for your deeds.  And let's see, ORLA GREY fought KEMET and gained 15 points and 
contributed to EX OBLIVIONE's 3-2-0.  KEMET has lost to ORLA GREY, falling 7 points, 
while helping make HOLLEN KATZE a 2-3-1 turn.  And not without some honor, GREEN 
DISEASE now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of COLLUSION COVE.  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory 
Tavern?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  The manager of EX OBLIVIONE will 
not be pleased to learn that IAN MACBRAITH, a 2-0-0 fighter, has been killed at the 
hands of RED DOG GANG's DONOLD DOG.  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 COLLUSION COVE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct

     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
