                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This Peregrine Firehawk person.  He wasn't bad, exactly, but he hesitated.  I
suspect him of Andorian inclinations.

                                    Chas Cringer

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for BASHFUL BENNIE, who 
pummelled ROMIAD FLINDERO, to pocket 16 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, HARD CORE was winsome, after beating PATTON and seeing him lose 10 points.  
PEREGRINE FIREHAWK found out that TRANSEL isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the 
best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are TRANSEL's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, FAINTLY 
FRANNIE is the most challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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 the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TRANSEL farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

was no ill-will involved, but she's really upset.  I don't like seeing her that
