                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     To the human Cheryl Miller I say, you have done well, showing a patience that
would not have disgraced a young rock.  But I am not a young rock, being full of
years and in no hurry at all.

                                    Green Rock

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JADE MOUNTAIN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, ENVANALIN fought GUARDSMAN TAN and gained 9 points and 
contributed to SAND DANCERS' 4-1-0.  And all eyes were on LEAPS INTO THE AIR this 
turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  JADE MOUNTAIN has a new victor!  
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at The Green Axe until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     I like this place, JADE MOUNTAIN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JADE MOUNTAIN and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JADE MOUNTAIN 
again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Leaps Into the Air -- With a name like that, I thought at first you were a standby.

Now, Ko-Ha Oakchopper IS a standby.  One of the short, hairy ones that Alastarians
call "dwarves."  We, however, realize that they're simply short, hairy humans. --
Jandina

Lightning Thrust -- That's more in MY line, you know.  Along with the Buffeting Blow
of wind and so on. -- Mountain Storm
