                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Jorja says I should apologize for killing Devonshire.  I don't see it.
Devonshire had killed, after all, he was no better than me--worse, or he wouldn't
have lost!  And Jorja killed four times before graduating from here.  So what's so
damned bad about killing my opponent.  Except for not having Devonshire to fight any
more, of course.  Well, and a bloodfeud, maybe.  But hey, these things happen!

                                    Tover Duck

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LIN TIRIAN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as KIWI CONNECTION is pushed out of top team by J, who came from 4th with 
a 3-1-0 this turn.  J stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
KHILDA MAUR fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 21 points and contributed to SAND 
DANCERS' 3-2-1.  LIQUID SNAKE has lost to THE COUNT, falling 5 points, while helping 
make SHADOW MOSSES a 1-1-0 turn.  Somebody's not going to like this, (then again, 
somebody will), but our Duelmaster, TOVER DUCK, has died, and UNFORGETTABLE has 
killed him.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Lost Hope Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
