                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is, I dunno, annoying, embarrassing, tedious?  I'm guessing Cornithian is
being held out for the next tourney, and there's no one else high enough to make a
match with me, so I'm going to fight standbys and hold the title until a Great of
Troy makes it up here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JADE MOUNTAIN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for SUNSET 
THUNDER?  SAND DANCERS' proud of him after beating QUINCY WATTS and getting 16 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  QUINCY WATTS' match with SUNSET THUNDER cost 
him a loss of 17 points!  Boo, hoo!  CORINTHIAN slew (slaught?  slet?) BEARSTONE KAI! 
Actually I never liked him much.  He just wanted to fight all the time.  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
