                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Commission says I'm born to scum.  Okay, I can live with that.  For a long
time, apparently.  Details on request.

                                    Panama Oats

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Call it luck at the right time or bribes in the 
right hands, but the new team KIWI CONNECTION 9 scored a 4-0-0 record this week.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for BURIED TREASURE, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after 
mashing MRALISSA LOON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MRALISSA LOON was beat by BURIED TREASURE 
and drops 18 points.  It's a proud day for the PALINDROMES stable, as their warrior, 
BOOB, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an 
onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad ROUTE 84?  Big bad ROUTE 84.  Big bad ROUTE 84.  ERINIKA's afraid of the big 
bad ROUTE 84.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  ROUTE 
84 + Weapons That go Boom = THEY MIGHT BE ORCS + Avoid City.  In a touching display 
by a 'touched' warrior, NEANDERTHAL went after WENDY VINE, who was higher by 20 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, NEANDERTHAL beat WENDY VINE.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the ERINIKA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  
Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Two standbys defeated, and a good job if we say so ourselves. -- Sarmino Tielo and
Mralissa Loon
P.S.  Okay, three standbys defeated, since Panama beat M. Chardinee.

Jiro -- You seem to have angered the handicapper, to get so uneven a match.  And to
draw it out so long, I would suspect you're better than the aforementioned
handicapper realized. -- Wendy Vine

Kitabatake -- For some reason, I expected you to be a Kiwi Connection.  Still, not a
bad match.  No doubt we'll see you again. -- Talitha Seale
