                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sorry to have been silent for so long.  Me and Caleam Chowder both.  We got
distracted by the tedium of real life.  Paying the rent on our guildhouse.  Buying
new toys in the market to show off in the arena.  A cold here, a dinner there.
Before you notice, it's fall and the leaves are turning and you realize that you
haven't done your duties as Duelmaster in many cycles.
     Since we won 6 awards this past turn, we'll be around for at least a few more.
This is one of the stranger teams run by the One Armed Bandit.  It began as a tourney
team, and turned into a collection of oddballs that he is enjoying running.  A 7'2"
Parry-Riposte.  A 7' Wall of Steel.  A 6'8" Striker.  Can't go wrong with guys like
those.
     It looks like I might get a match against an actual opponent, this turn.
Looking forward to it, Tiger, if it comes to pass.

                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for STEAMED MUSCLES, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing 
URIK DARKHEART like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KORYLUS VRAE was bested by GREEN GIANT and 
drops 6 points.  It's a proud day for the SAND DANCERS stable, as their warrior, 
TIGER JONSALMIN, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor 
away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the LIN TIRIAN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
