                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     We are real, we are complex, a few of us may even just be imaginary.  We are the
Numb-ers.  I will continue to divide my foes and subtract their wins.  I will
continue to add stats and multiply skills.  I will continue to fight until I approach
infinity.  All hail Numb-ers. -....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DAYLA KIV!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, SHARK fought HALF PAST PI and gained 11 points and 
contributed to ERRATA's 2-0-0.  GORBLE has lost to ARADI SCAMPI, falling 5 points, 
while helping make SAND DANCERS a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and -.... remains DAYLA KIV's top warrior for another turn.  
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at The Crystal Wheel until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in DAYLA KIV, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in DAYLA KIV again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
