                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You'll have to do better than that, Decay.  I think your name is against you.

                                     Zoe Alden

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in JURINE this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  Defending hers title for another turn, ZOE ALDEN 
kept AUTUMN SAGA's warrior, DECAY, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench 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.  PHILANTHROPISTS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were JURINE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided PHILANTHROPISTS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
AUTUMN SAGA.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was MIDDLE WAY 
16's warrior XAVAN YOLE.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, DRAGON HARVEST from AUTUMN SAGA challenged up 22 
points to fight XAVAN YOLE from the MIDDLE WAY 16 stable.  DRAGON HARVEST perhaps got 
his just desserts, seeing as he beat XAVAN YOLE and ended up with 78 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.  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in JURINE, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JURINE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
