                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yet again, Negative One becomes positively one for me.  I like this.  I could do
it over and over again.

                                      Gorble

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAYLA KIV a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, NEGATIVE ONE fought 
BARNDIS LORNE and gained 29 points and contributed to NUMB-ERS' 3-1-1.  KHARHOVAN TEN 
SIU has lost to DANGEROUS BON LOKAR, falling 12 points, while helping make SAND 
DANCERS a 1-4-0 turn.  We should ask ORANGE O'CLOCK about the thrill of victory, and 
what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  Tell me, 
is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Crystal Wheel 
uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in DAYLA KIV today as BARNDIS LORNE was bid 
farewell to a 14-7-0 warrior, with NEGATIVE ONE of NUMB-ERS standing silent and 
pensive.  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.   
     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 you see my quill in DAYLA KIV again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
