                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     There was a day when our manager would see to it that a column was full of
interest and action, or at least full of words.  These days, we're lucky if Jorja
lets us get in a couple of lines.
     Malodorousreek, it was a good try, but I've been training on garlic for the past
two weeks.

                                      Tatharli

P.S.  A LONG spear?  And very low/very low?  I don't THINK so!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir 
to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  CARROT TOP 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to IRINKESTA and losing 
5 points in the process!  TATHARLI found out being NIATOLI ISLAND's Duelmaster isn't 
all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  The arena was more crowded than usual 
this time, as SUCCOTASH faced NIATOLI ISLAND's Duelmaster.  What can be a greater 
victory?  SUCCOTASH has taken his place as the top, as NIATOLI ISLAND's new 
Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in NIATOLI ISLAND is taking speech lessons to try 
to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in NIATOLI ISLAND avoid THE SEWING CIRCLE.  As a woman of 
good breeding scorns the "warriors" of VEGGIES, so did that sorry team shy from THE 
SEWING CIRCLE PEA POD challenged THIMBELL!  Who says VEGGIES are just a bunch of 
wimps!  PEA POD of VEGGIES kept his wits as he beat THIMBELL.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in NIATOLI ISLAND would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  NIATOLI 
ISLAND, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Don't Drop 
Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

to buy a drink after our last fight here. -- Barango, Commission Agent
