                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My name is Garth. I am a scum. I go to at least one meeting a week to
help keep me clean. But I remain a scum. Every turn I make, I watch for my
own inappropriate scum actions. I also am cautious for those who are
aggressive and try to discriminate against scum, I don't like that.
     It is a disease, I hear. I feel I shall never be healed. Meanwhile, I
remain a scum.
          Garth, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out JADE MOUNTAIN 
to see what's new.  Too bad, MANAGER MUSINGS, but SAND DANCERS was just too good to 
be stopped.  MVP award for JAGINRU?  SAND DANCERS' proud of him after beating 
SOULTAKER and getting 27 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SOULTAKER got 
smashed by JAGINRU, and lost 21 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think GARTH should let SERNILLAN be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  HUE AND CRY was JADE MOUNTAIN's 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
MANAGER MUSINGS?  HUE AND CRY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!  Can SAND DANCERS' SERNILLAN be more popular than me?  She 
was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you 
guys smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte
