                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay, so I used all my clever material last week as Duelmaster.  With any luck
One will come and replace me soon.  He was first after all.  Odd though, One is
number two.  By hook and by crook number Six (-.... in Morse Code), has become number
1 in our little Village.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for KRAKEL, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing ORANGE 
O'CLOCK like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  ORANGE O'CLOCK was overcame by KRAKEL and drops 10 points. 
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was SHEWISH BUFFET's 
ARADI SCAMPI, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by -.....  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 NUMB-ERS?  Big bad NUMB-ERS.  Big bad NUMB-ERS.  DAYLA KIV's afraid of the 
big bad NUMB-ERS.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch ERRATA's 
act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from NUMB-ERS.  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of NIMINI TYL ZO, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 DAYLA KIV giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown
