                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It wasn't luck THIS time, Floydriffic.  Well, for you, maybe.  I call it bad
luck on my part and hardly fair that I took the title a second time on a loss.
Still, there it is.  Good luck on the Isle.

                                    Blackbuck

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DULLENS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Good things come 
to those who fight well, as CARDOW HUNTERS can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays 
for GOLDENEYE, who pummelled THE LIBRARIAN, to pocket 22 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 17 points to 
GOLDENEYE.  (Discrete enough, THE LIBRARIAN?) THE BEAKSTER found out that DULLENS 
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...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
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.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  DULLENS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Yellow Dog Tavern.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
