                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is a small arena, here in Kaltos, is it not?  Small, but very nice.  And the
Middle Way folks do manage to give me someone "real" to fight each turn at the top,
which is more than my inexperienced teammates can say.
     As for the throne, it is an honor to hold it, small arena or large.  Still, this
will be my last turn on the throne, for a while, at least.  It seems that I only need
1 more fight to land right at 30FE.  That, obviously, would leave me timed for the
fall tourney.  And who wouldn't want to be able to enter a piker into champs?  And
after that?  I don't know.  Perhaps Nomad will have me sit out for a long slog
through challengers?  Or maybe I shall return to push my way to graduation?  He has
worked to create a full roster here and I doubt he would want to leave one roster
spot idle while the others keep pushing.
     Perhaps if I do hold this throne again I can offer some enlightenment on the
nature our names and their illustrious past.
     Who knows?  For now I shall simply enjoy all the honor and glory that comes with
the title of Duelmaster!

Your honorable Duelmaster for one more turn.
Y the Bold

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KALTOS, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for BLACK DEATH, who pummelled DIZZY 
LIZZIE, to pocket 22 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 13 points to BLACK DEATH.  (Discrete enough, DIZZY 
LIZZIE?) Can you believe it?  Y THE BOLD apparently has better things to do as 
KALTOS' Duelmaster than show up and fight!  Now I can't insult NEWLIN PARRIT, as he 
has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it 
on too thick) 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!  Perhaps the warriors of HOOKED ON 
COFFEE should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The 
warriors of HOOKED ON COFFEE found their efforts at combat frustrated as HISTORICAL 
KOLACT apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for KALTOS?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Nothing like a next-turn turn-around, is there?  This time, one-four, with three of
the losses being to standbys.  Bummer, but there it is.  Annoying stuff happens, and
often to us.  At least *I* won *my* fight.  Over, I admit it, a standby.  It's a win.
