                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My master plan worked!  By hiding my potential opponent's newspapers in the
bushes, they spent so much time looking for and retrieving their paper that they fell
behind schedule and didn't make it in time for the fights last week!  And so, here I
am, completely undeserving, sitting on the throne of Solven!
     Who would have guessed it!?!  Most people think newspapers as we know them are
going to disappear from the face of the Earth.  But until they do, I will have a job
and I'll trade tips for the throne any day of the week.

-- In the Bushes

     I guess I get to keep this throne warm until a real contender comes to claim it.
Quite likely it is Lulu and I this turn.  It will be a battle of wits.  My ability to
hide the paper in the bushes versus her ability to find it.
     It may be an epic contest.  Or maybe not.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Good things come to those who fight well, as ARE YOU ? can attest, 
moving up by 0.  The boys at MEDAL OF HONOR 104 are walking tall, as they are ranked 
4th on their first try!  Going for the Duelmaster soon?  Practice pays for SSG6, who 
pummelled TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, to pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, ANGEL was winsome, after beating NYSSA RYE and seeing her lose 10 points.  In 
SOLVEN, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
LULU ORLENE.  Word has it one team in SOLVEN is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are SOLVEN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of MEDIEVAL CHAOS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, B.B. NEWSBOY scurried away from MEDIEVAL 
CHAOS.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and LOVE OR CONFUSION 
is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't ARE YOU ? proud!  FARLIN MEEKS 
found himself challenged by a warrior 22 below:  OUT OF REACH.  OUT OF REACH of B.B. 
NEWSBOY kept his wits as he was beat by FARLIN MEEKS.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Justice was 
served as ANGEL fought NYSSA RYE in bloodfeud.  Well done, ARE YOU ?!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in SOLVEN is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
