                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I cock a snook at you, Norle "Stupid" Parth.  I am the Duel2Dude, and I am now
immortal, and you are NOT.

                                        Zakau

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 had cause to celebrate, after 
GLORIA IMBRO got 16 points by beating DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.  BLABB certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to INGOLD KERR and losing 5 points in 
the process!  NORLE PARTH found out that KALTOS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in KALTOS is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     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!   
     Do not think spyreporting in KALTOS is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  KALTOS, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Hoffa -- It is with pleasure that I trash you yet again. -- Erloi Gill
P.S.  I take it you are in the running for the 100+ club?  Since you now have 98
fights in basic.

Zakau -- You're on the wrong team.  A winning record?  Graduation at a mere forty-
four fights?  Definitely not John material. -- Norle Parth

Angus -- You, we expect to win.  We'd rather lose to you than a John.  You appreciate
it more. -- Ingold Kerr

Grimm -- That describes the weather lately, doesn't it? -- Chester Egg
P.S.  Hey, so it's a non sequitur.  Live with it.  Things could've been worse.  I'm a
hard-boiled Egg, you know.

Hilde -- My thanks for those skills.  Great stuff. -- Gloria Imbro

Lord Protector Zakau -- No lands.  The Protector of Kaltos was quite clear on that.
Nothing, not so much as a grain of sand.  It is, after all, a small island.  I could,
of course, offer you lands on the mainland, but since I couldn't give you a clear
title, and you would be likely to come back and complain to ME about it, I will
refrain.  Several business have offered you a modest share in return for your, ah,
prestige.  If you are interested in some such deal, let me know and we'll go into the
possibilities. -- Zelagan of Sestegos, Lands Agent

Our congratulations to Manute Bol and Ppuffington for an impressive performance in
the recent tourney. -- Arenamaster Troktai and the rest of the arena staff
