                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Welp, the Veteran Mercenary was "there for me," and I'm now about to be gone for
you-all.  Thrilling, eh?  Actually, I probably won't leave Kaltos at all, I just
won't duel in the arena here.  Nothing I've heard about the Isle encourages me to go
there.

                                    Jammy Larke

P.S.  EPEE?  I'm not suited to the Epee!  I have neither the wit nor the deftness for
it.  Damn.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for ASHLEY, who pummelled IRVINA KORL, to pocket 9 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 15 points to KHALHUMS DWARF.  (Discrete enough, KATIRONA MURH?) JAMMY LARKE 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by VENOMOUS CONCUBINE of KALTOS.  Does 
KALTOS have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in KALTOS 
is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  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 KALTOS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

A salute to the Khalhums Dwarf. -- Katirona Murh

And a salute to M. Chardinee. -- Felissa Hurm

Kelly!  You will be our team's only loss today, but the fact that you're a managed
opponent makes up for it.  Or something.  I could have wished for one of my teammates
to get the only loss, but that's life. -- Pendru Rost

And a salute to the Osksi Noble. -- Irvina Korl

Jammy Larke -- We are once again being "urged" to come up with some kind of
graduation gift for gladiators.  Be aware that this is a small island with a
challenged economy.  Not to mention that the economy of the ARENA here is more than
challenged.  How about a drink before you leave? -- Arenamaster Troktai

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
