                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Joevina lost to a standby, I defeated a standby, therefore *I* get to do the
column.  What a thrill.  I can barely contain myself, especially since my team fought
FOUR standbys this time, making us wonder what the whole POINT is.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  DAL SHANG needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for TYLLA 
TYRN?  SAND DANCERS' proud of her after beating TENDERIZED DUCK and getting 21 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  TENDERIZED DUCK got smashed by TYLLA TYRN, 
and lost 3 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think KILLIAN 
TEN VIR should let SWEET ANELLA be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it. 
Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All DAL SHANG ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Captain Lensar, and I won. -- Lorin ten Koro

Korka the Hairy for me, and that makes us three and one against the standbys. --
