                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greeting, everyone.  So my boss tells me what happened last turn is pretty rare.
My guild mate loses from the throne and I take over because who he lost to left for
the Isle on the same turn.  At least the right person is on top now.  No offense to
my brother, but you made to the top by pure luck and aren't even in my class.  You
think you are going to follow Wenien and get your invite invite in 20 fights.  Ha!!
How about sharing some of what you been smokin.

See ya next turn,
Duelmaster Solwyn

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of LAPUR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Say what you will about 
blind luck and dirty fighting, but BLACK SAMURAI will tell you 398-383-22 is nothing 
to laugh at...  ARCANE PHARMACY had cause to celebrate, after THE CREAM got 20 points 
by beating SNOWFLAKE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, CLAYBANK was winsome, 
after beating MOTHIAS and seeing him lose 15 points.  SOLWYN found out being LAPUR's 
Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  SOLWYN successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by STEEL SHARPENER of METAL MINCERS.  Does LAPUR have 
no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are LAPUR's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in LAPUR avoid BLACK SAMURAI.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, MID EARTH scurried away from BLACK 
SAMURAI.  Oh, the shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Cairraig Amadan -- So how do you remember how to spell your name when you aren't even
smart enough to use your weapon. <chuckle> -- Solwyn

     It's written on the tag inside his armor?

Nero -- Thanks for bursting my bubble.  Hope you enjoy the Isle. -- Mothias

Steel Squeezer -- Defective borg?  Didn't think that was possible. -- Qualm

Windflower -- Somebody seems a bit two faced. -- Naowyn

     Makes it easier to look both ways when crossing the street.

Ushiro -- Thanks for using that crappy weapon. <grin> -- Orloff

Mothias -- Well, it was a good try.  Hang in there, you haven't lost your chance at
the twenty-fight graduation yet! -- Claybank

Wenien -- Graciously said. -- Grassfire

Naowyn -- Perfectly innocent suggestion!  Honest. -- Windflower

Steel Sharpener -- Just my luck the steel you sharpened was in the lawn mower! --
Grassfire

Miley Virus -- Not enough winter yet, I guess. -- Wintersong
P.S.  But it's coming.

Jessie Janes -- Hmm, I should've got more points for that win, shouldn't I?  Or else
you should've got more for the loss, I'm not sure which.  The Commissions ways are
mystery to me. -- Claybank

     And to everyone.

Naowyn -- You did say you wanted to be lower in the ranks, didn't you? -- Windflower

Those Dangerous Criminals are just TOO dangerous! -- Snowflake
