                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, isn't this FUNNY?!!!!  Who would have thought 18 months ago that I'd be
sitting here writing this to you on my final turn in Osksi?!!!  Marma Duke has me
going to the night fights yet again, but THIS time he fully expects me to win, as
opposed to my first fight when he expected me to lose.
     Here's a peek underneath what makes me tick:
18(+1)-8-14-13-9-10-13  Normal/Great, Very High/Mod, Maul, Init fave learn
     My skills levels are as follows -- 24/14/26/13/8/15  +1 Att, +2 Par/Def  Skill
learns/turn 1.47.
     If they do, in fact, have a no tourney ADM, I'll be Marma Duke's first graduate
that has absolutely zero tourney FE... so I might wind up there if he decides to
continue my career... which is doubtful at best.
     At the end of the day... I consider myself lucky to be here and happy to have
survived the carnage this arena so blatently displays on a bi-weekly basis (for some
of which I am to blame!).

Until we meet again,
-Funny Farm Fiend-

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  STATE OF MIND?  Who?  AESIR is the top team 
these days, buddies!  Those betting on PASTA lost their shirt, as PASTA lost their 
fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as BRIGHT can attest...  AESIR posted a nice gain, to come 
in 1st.  Everybody loves a winner...  SERPENTS' HOLD had cause to celebrate, after 
VIPER got 16 points by beating FENRIS.  FENRIS certainly had a baffled expression on 
his face, after losing to VIPER and losing 11 points in the process!  Well, 
Duelmaster FUNNY FARM FIEND Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's LORD ISKOVEN.  Is a 
20-17-4 good enough?  The crowds were amazed this turn, as LORD ISKOVEN killed the 
Duelmaster, FUNNY FARM FIEND, leaving STATE OF MIND in mourning.  Even 90 points 
weren't good enough to save FUNNY FARM FIEND from HUSTLERS AMBITION.  OSKSI welcomes 
HUSTLERS AMBITION as the new Duelmaster!  Word has it one team in OSKSI is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of AESIR, alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, STATE OF MIND scurried away from AESIR.  Oh, the 
shame!  If challenges were horses, SALDORINIVAN KIRO could open up a fast food joint! 
My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, UBIQUITI 
BULLET and VELOVORINSAL NORS.  Are GENERATION X unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  
I thought UBIQUITI BULLET showed great skill and promise when he bested VELOVORINSAL 
NORS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid OSKSI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
