                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A good try, Taikutsu, but the probabilities were all against you.  Better luck
elsewhere, eh?  And my thanks for the skills.

                                    Marey D'Nuit

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of WILLAF.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
SHIORIME, who pummelled GOLD CACHE, to pocket 15 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, SHIORIME was winsome, after beating GOLD CACHE and seeing her lose 
14 points.  M. CHARDINEE found out that WILLAF isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in WILLAF avoid PUNNY AMINALS.  The warriors of PUNNY 
AMINALS found their efforts at combat frustrated as GOLDEN GLADIATORS apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, BAABRA LAMMONT 
could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid WILLAF farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
