                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, of course, I am on the throne.  Duelmaster has always been my destiny.
Oh, I've been here before, but that witch Dora lucked out and stold my crown.
Brat!!!
     I have to watch out for that cheatin', sandbaggin' Caniliv Kat who sits and
lurks and then pounces when you least expect it.  It's a grimm animal-- that Kat.
But I am going to challenge and challenge and Kat ain't on the agenda.  Well, maybe
the Furry Furies will appear on the avoid chart. (wink)
     It is a great pleasure to sit here, on the top of Aruak City.  I just love it.
I wish I could say that I want to graduate, but, even if I did, I need some more
(read: lots more) skilly-willys, so the time just ain't nigh.  Nope.  So I guess I
will just stay here and enjoy good life.
     No need for you to challenge.  I am molded into the DM Throne.
          Purple Passion, DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARUAK CITY.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  What's a move up 
by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to 
THE HITCHHIKERS.  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but ANIMAL 
FARM will tell you 1350-697-45 is nothing to laugh at...  Practice pays for MARVIN, 
who pummelled BULL MOOSE, to pocket 26 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, MARVIN was winsome, after beating BULL MOOSE and seeing him lose 27 points.  
What can be a greater victory?  FORD PREFECT has taken his place as the top, as ARUAK 
CITY's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week 
and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE HITCHHIKERS, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of THE HITCHHIKERS found their efforts at combat frustrated as BULLDOGS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and CHERRY CHICKEN is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
ANIMAL FARM proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
SHEWISH GIANT in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for PARAGON of THE ASSEMBLY.  Maybe 
that certain serving girl(?) at The Bulldog Inn will be!  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!  ARUAK CITY, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Bulldog Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
