                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     If I were Rosetta, I'd be angry, too.  She fights for YEARS, more than twenty of
them, and she's NEVER allowed to take the title or an position of honor.  But just
because I understood her position, I wasn't about to let her win a fight if I could
stop her.  Sympathy is one thing, practical reality is often an entirely different
thing.
     But... hmm.  I bet I could make something, maybe some kind of vanilla fudge
base, and then flavor it with rosewater?  Add some rose petals for color.  Call it
Rosettian Sweets, maybe.  Let me think about this.
     Just so you know, greataxe is RIDICULOUS for me.

                                    Donnamira

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  SEA DOGS?  Who?  DREAMERS is the top team 
these days, buddies!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing 
at jokes, observe BLUE NOTE.  Last week they got 0-4-0 to drop by 4!  Nothing works 
for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as DREAMERS can 
attest...  DREAMERS had cause to celebrate, after ANTIPHON got 26 points by beating 
HOW.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 23 points to DEVAR THE TRAITOR.  (Discrete enough, JAYLENE MOKHAR?) Now I 
can't insult TWISTED CLOWN, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new 
Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Alas, poor HOW.  We 
all know GUESSING GAME's retirement plan isn't the best in the world.  ANTIPHON, may 
you be as missed when your time comes.  Never one to advocate diplomacy and 
restraint, I was pleased to see DREAMERS retaliate against GUESSING GAME in 
bloodfeud!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you 
have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid RIZTAB farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Prodicus -- Outstanding learns!  If I weren't so damned lazy, I would challenge you.
-- Chum Bucket

Motta the Pike.  Standby.  I know the "pike" in his name isn't for the fish, well,
probably isn't for the fish, but... I bet I could do something fun with fish-shaped
candies. -- Jaylene Mokhar

There are times when I feel it would be a mercy to just kill Li Ko the Clumsy, a
five-foot-five Shewish aimed blow, but since he's a standby, it would be a wasted
effort.  He'd be back again toot sweet. -- Lorimera

Miles Davis -- Well, cheese louise!  I get the only managed opponent, and I DIE?
This is bad.  I don't like it at all.  I'd say even ruder things, but it would
probably be pointless.  Oh, well.  Good fight on your part. -- Ghost of Miriamina
