                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Give it up, Bradley.  You can't take me, and you're just ruining your
reputation.

                                    Zebd Arvin

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for DANTE ALIGHIERI, who pummelled ZOMBIE, to pocket 16 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 14 points to DANTE ALIGHIERI.  (Discrete enough, ZOMBIE?) Those who hoped for 
a new Duelmaster were disappointed by BRADLEY, of THE GENERALS, who despite a 14-15-2 
couldn't overcome ALJAFIR's Number 1.  Word has it one team in ALJAFIR is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ALJAFIR's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ALJAFIR is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
