                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yesterday, a Venomous Concubine, today a Veteran Mercenary.  What will it be
tomorrow?  Some other standby, most likely.  I don't mind the wins, but it's still
depressing.

                                    Just Losin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of KALTOS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain in 
KALTOS, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 had cause to celebrate, after SAIRY WELLS 
got 16 points by beating CAPTURED ORC.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 6 points to IRON GIANT.  (Discrete enough, 
NEWLIN PARRIT?) Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, BUT JUST 
LOSIN is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  So who's 
the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a 
PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of ON THE FARM should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of ON THE 
FARM found their efforts at combat frustrated as TECHNOLOGY apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, NOLBER PRING is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Justice was served as HORSE fought NOLBER PRING in bloodfeud.  Well done, ON 
THE FARM!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you 
have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an 
overtaxed simile, I now bid KALTOS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Nolber Pring -- Attempt #3, coming up.  You're a tough nut to crack, apparently.
Probably doesn't help that you have so much more experience than I. -- Horse

Horse -- I salute your dedication and honor your respect for your fallen comrade, but
this doesn't seem to be getting us anywhere. -- Nolber Pring

I considered asking the Userous Merchant how he makes money, and then I realized that
if he was really GOOD at it, he wouldn't be fighting in the arena.  I need to find
some other merchant for that question. -- Newlin Parrit

Iron Giant -- Your very height is intimidating. -- Isobel Kline

Magog -- I should hope so!  Although I suppose you could have hidden tourney fights.
-- Sairy Wells
