                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This was one of the days when I wondered why we even bothered to have the
fights.  Nobody but us Sand Dancers and the standbys.  I'm not sure whether the
Commission is punishing us or the standbys, or maybe both, but I wouldn't have
objected to a day off.

                                   Deelar Marion

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LIN TIRIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, ROCKING MOOSE fought MORDANT DESERTER and gained 17 
points and contributed to CANADIAN TOYS' 3-2-0.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and DEELAR MARION remains LIN TIRIAN's top warrior for 
another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Lost Hope Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that LIN TIRIAN 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in LIN TIRIAN, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in LIN TIRIAN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
