                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay, at least THIS time I defeated--nay, I DEVASTATED the Veteran Mercenary.
And remained duelmaster, chartered recognition lead, popularity leader and favorite--
I'm exhausted!  There's a lot of work in all that stuff, you know.  Public
appearances, good clothes, speeches, banquets--it's amazing what people expect me to
EAT.  Snails!  And... ugh, things with WAY too many legs.  I'm gonna get a dog and
bring him with me to the banquets, and HE can eat that stuff.  And then the SPCA is
going to beat me up, probably.  Oh, well.

                                   Fenster Golly

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ALJAFIR, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that 
for a perceptive observation?) as MISSION: EARTH! can attest...  BODY OF MUSIC had 
cause to celebrate, after TRUNK ROCK got 19 points by beating TOBIT OPPAT.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 5 points to 
TRUNK ROCK.  (Discrete enough, TOBIT OPPAT?) Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, BUT FENSTER GOLLY is still the Duelmaster because he has the most 
recognition points!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are ALJAFIR's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  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!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ALJAFIR?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
