                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I feel slighted.  The Commission thinks little of me.  I held three titles
last time, same as today, and they only gave us one free fight!  It isn't the free
fight itself, mind you, it's the principle of the thing.  Was there only one because
there was only one of ME holding those places on the front page?  Or was it somebody
out to make me look bad?  I defeated my standby this time, you know.

                                  Harbert Kreigh

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VALAMANTIS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Hey everybody, watch out for BONY TONY, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after 
mashing THE USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LAZY LOUIE was defeated by LON OLBERT 
and drops 5 points.  Well, everybody's pal HARBERT KREIGH moved his record to 18-12-0 
by defeating CARELESS BEAR in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 11 recognition 
points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad MOB RULE?  Big bad MOB RULE.  Big bad MOB RULE.  VALAMANTIS' afraid of the 
big bad MOB RULE.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch CM - 
SCORPIO's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
MOB RULE.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of LAZY LOUIE, who was this week's 
most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VALAMANTIS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
