                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     While most managers are glad for the commission to not induct their warriors,
Assur says the commission has taken too many bribes and kickbacks and now normal
operating procedure is to not graduate warriors.  Perhaps this turn will be my day.
I've heard you can learn lots of interesting things at the Shewish Buffet.  Perhaps
if I attend such a smorgasbord, the commission will think I'm worthy of immortality
(which for me means a comfortable retirement) 

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZORPUNT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for PONY STONE, who pummelled 
VIBRANT THING, to pocket 20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, PONY 
STONE was winsome, after beating VIBRANT THING and seeing him lose 18 points.  What 
can be a greater victory?  CHILI CON CARNAGE has taken his place as the top, as 
ZORPUNT's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in ZORPUNT is taking speech lessons 
to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in ZORPUNT avoid BASH BROS. BOSS.  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of SHEWISH BUFFET, so did that sorry team shy from BASH BROS. 
BOSS Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and CLAY POOLE is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't KRILL CAVALRY proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Those who owe 
TAKES CREDIT of BASH BROS. BOSS money and had written him off, take note:  he'S BACK 
FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Questions are being raised about the 
disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ZORPUNT would I 
avoid!   
     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 ZORPUNT?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
