                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I bid you greetings and farewell in the same breath, as my time in Osksi is at
an end!!  This brief time on the throne has most certainly been anything BUT Mundane,
and apparently my time is not yet at an end... as Marma Duke has decided to run me in
ADM as I seem to have "potential."  Well, potential as far as that goes for us Parry-
Strikes in the lands beyond our home.
     Here's some insight on my design for those interested in seeing what makes me
tick: 7(+1)-16-6-21-17-7-11 Good/Little, SC, Low/Low, AdEx Init, Att, Par, Dec,
Expert Def, 2.2 skills/FE
     I leave you hoping Dark Sarcasm can replace my spot on the throne rather
swiftly... off to the Dark Arena I go!
     Until we meet again,
          -Existance  Mundane-

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon OSKSI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at STATE OF MIND left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by AESIR.  Good show!  He who laughs last 
didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe BRIGHT.  Last week they 
got 0-0-0 to drop by 4!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as GENERATION X can attest...  Good things come to those who 
fight well, as AESIR can attest, moving up by 1.  AESIR had cause to celebrate, after 
STARKAD got 25 points by beating SALDORINIVAN KIRO.  MISERYS HOLLOW CHASM certainly 
had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to SKADI and losing 17 points in 
the process!  Duelmaster EXISTANCE MUNDANE from STATE OF MIND is going for the gold, 
as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's STONE GOLEM.  Ooh, the excitement!  Those 
who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by STONE GOLEM, of DARK ARENA, who 
despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome OSKSI's Number 1.  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.  The warriors 
of AESIR found their efforts at combat frustrated as STATE OF MIND apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, PHLEM is the most challenged warrior. 
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  STONE GOLEM in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for EXISTANCE MUNDANE of STATE OF 
MIND.  Maybe that certain serving girl(?) at The Elefont will be!  Charity is unknown 
in OSKSI, and rightly so.  AESIR exacted their revenge against STATE OF MIND.  Ask 
not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
