                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sorry, Baked Fratsfa, but I just wasn't in the mood for ice cream.
     On a more positive note, I see that our newsletter ran to a second sheet of
paper... but only because of the tourney listings.  We really are in a sadly run-down
state here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CALEAM, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  GOLDEN CANYON had cause to celebrate, after JELLIA 
BOONE got 7 points by beating NOBLE ASSASSIN.  OVAELLA JUNE certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and losing 18 points in 
the process!  Now I can't insult BAKED FRATSFA, as he has gloriously dueled to the 
top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one 
team in CALEAM is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in CALEAM is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a 
mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid CALEAM farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --

Jinsi H'ru, Veteran of Many Actions -- What I do wonder is how you SURVIVED long
enough to become a Veteran Mercenary.  You seem singularly deficient in combat
survival skills. -- Ovaella June

M. Risoco Chardinee -- Thank you for the skills, not to mention the win. -- Alfreda
Creme

Jackie O -- Potato doughnuts?  I don't think so.  Not my scene. -- Spud Loomis

Elenore Roosevelt -- So, how did you like that?  It's my latest addition to the menu:
a sort of cream-pudding, I haven't decided what to call it yet, meant to be served
over a pound cake.  This was the basic stuff, plain-vanilla, so to speak.  But I'm
going to produce variations:  fruits, honey-and-nuts, chocolate, brandy.  It'll be
great! -- Jellia Boone
P.S.  Weight-control businesses pay me a royalty on this stuff, you know?  Keeps them
in business.

We salute the tourney participants.  Lady Fingers, you still might make it to fame,
just keep trying. -- Jorja and the Golden Canyon chefs
