                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The first thing I must do is refute and utterly dispell the vile calumny, to
wit, that there was "a tear in my eye" as I took the title.  If that stupid spy
reporter saw anything, it was a gleam of satisfaction.  The title is no more than I
deserve, and possibly less.  I am, after all, a Duck.  I should be granted
immortality of the body, as I already have an immortal spirit and reputation.  Why
has this been delayed?
     And yes, Unreliable was "fit to be tied."  To a stake and roasted, if you ask
me.

                                   Kurtal Duck

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for LIN TIRIAN.  EL CAMINO:HOT SAUCE like 
really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 5th.  Way to go!  MVP award for SATANIC 
BUNNY?  EASTER FROM HELL's proud of him after beating SALLY SHARPE and getting 26 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SALLY SHARPE's match with SATANIC BUNNY cost 
her a loss of 23 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
KURTAL DUCK should let CONVICTED ASSASSIN be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting 
about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said LIN TIRIAN's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Lost Hope Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of SHEWISH BUFFET must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are EASTER FROM 
HELL?  SHEWISH BUFFET, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  LIN TIRIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte
