                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Looks like my first attempt at defending my position was successful.  Now Dustin
and I are 1-1.  Looks as if the competition level has once again increased.  Welcome
back, Crip.
     And now I notice that one way or another my next match will probably be verses
Halifax.  Striker vs Slasher.  Hmmm... maybe he'll be over-confident with having the
style advantage.  Sure would be nice to have a wingman or two.  But I don't.  So...
time to suit up, cinch up the sword belt an extra notch and see how things unfold.

Life and luck to me and you!

                         Seam

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KYR'TERR will ever be the same.  CORDIALS stable has parlayed this turn's 
2-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, PINEAPPLE fought AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 17 points and 
contributed to PIZZA TOPPINGS' 2-3-0.  TURNPIKE has lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, falling 
11 points, while helping make NEW YORK a 4-1-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and SEAM remains KYR'TERR's top warrior for another turn.  
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Dripping Blade uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the PIZZA TOPPINGS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on KYR'TERR, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
PIZZA TOPPINGS more than any other team we find BAD COMBINATIONS.  KYR'TERR, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
MIROI CHANG from ARENAS II was KYR'TERR's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
