                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow!  I mean, really wow!  I thought maybe someday I would be Duelmaster, but
beating that muscle bound Kogan?  Didn't think it would happen this fast!  Well,
thanks for the awesome fight Kogan.  I won't be making any challenges this turn, so
come get me!

                     Your Duelmaster,
                       Xavier

                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  EL CAMINO:DOS now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for STREGOICA, who 
flew up 25 points in the rankings after mashing LOCUTUS like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LOCUTUS 
was bested by STREGOICA and drops 11 points.  Our battling duelmaster XAVIER has 
managed to hold the title, fending off WINTER ROSE's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, SAND DANCERS.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just 
get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that RUNEBLADES was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of RUNEBLADES' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, 
cause EL CAMINO:DOS beats feet every time RUNEBLADES smiles at them.  Try farming, 
eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of BANDIDOS GUAPO, who was this week's 
most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, RAGE went 
after BANDIDOS GUAPO, who was higher by 19 points.  Well, when the dust settled, RAGE 
was defeated by BANDIDOS GUAPO.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JADE MOUNTAIN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Bandidos Guapo -- You're a lot more guapo when you lose.  And that shriek of
unrestrained terror at the end was well done. -- Claws of Night
