                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Kordal -- Just you and me!  But my time grows short.  I beseech upon you to change
your ways before I am forced to leave this place and carry the mantle away!  You said
it last turn, that you need to fix yourself.  Eternity awaits those who put their
faith in the one true God. -- In Your Face

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for LINDIS TYL SARRO, who flew up 22 points 
in the rankings after mashing DRIVING A ROLLS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
gal.  Unlike most arenas, IN YOUR FACE managed to get his challenge off against the 
25-20-2 KORDAL T'ROHN.  Our battling duelmaster IN YOUR FACE has managed to hold the 
title, fending off KORDAL T'ROHN's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 
SAND DANCERS.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
KORDAL T'ROHN, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  Getting lots of flowers 
from sympathetic fans was MARAN TEN PALAN, who was successfully challenged by ON THE 
CORNER who had a mere 53 points more than MARAN TEN PALAN.  Definition of petty:  ON 
THE CORNER beat MARAN TEN PALAN, a mismatch of 53 points.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the DAL SHANG giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you 
can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one 
already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Maran -- Your continued presence on my corner makes me happy.  It would be such a
lonely corner without you! -- On the Corner

     Practically a metaphor for life as a whole, isn't it?

Kurlo -- Assur is not sure that any amount of strategy changes can fix me.  But if I
may say so, anyone looks good while... Driving a Rolls

     This is true.

Jorja -- Three more turns for On the Corner.  I've played for too long to take any
wins for granted, but right now it is looking quite possible that I will be able to
check off an accomplishment that I've long desired to achieve.  After that, it will
be the long haul for my Rolls Royce endowed friend.  And at the moment, 5 wins appear
a long ways off, let alone 17 PPs. -- Assur

Driving a Rolls -- Just remember what I've told you.  Once you go below .500, I don't
see you returning. -- Assur

In Your Face -- We don't get a lot of surprises here, do we? -- Kordal t'Rohn

On the Corner -- Do people hand you coppers often?  Get you in trouble with the
Beggars' Guild if they do, I suppose. -- Maran ten Palan

Driving a Rolls -- Cheese louise!  If you can't handle four horses, get yourself a
driver! -- Kurlo ten Doshan

And two against standbys. -- Lorand ten Sorn and Lindis tyl Sarro
