                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That Cranky Old Rooster was resting on his laurels, and I upped and outed him.
Silly bird.

                                     Eldon Kree

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for DEJANNA KALM, who pummelled CHICKEN GUARD, to pocket 
11 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, DEJANNA KALM was winsome, after 
beating CHICKEN GUARD and seeing him lose 5 points.  What can be a greater victory?  
JULES has taken hers place as the top, as SOLVEN's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one 
team in SOLVEN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll 
bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of MIDDLE WAY 15 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with 
its tail between its legs, SERPENTS HOLD scurried away from MIDDLE WAY 15.  Oh, the 
shame!  If challenges were horses, HEN OF DEATH could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
MOUNTAIN TROLL in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for TOXIN of SERPENTS HOLD.  Maybe 
that certain serving girl(?) at The Victory Tavern will be!  Oh hard!  that to strike 
a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in SOLVEN is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
