                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is I, The Mongol here to entreat you with my babble.  How I arrived here on
the throne was by karma.  That means lucky, for you knotheads that don't know the
meaning of some words.  Bad luck for you Korienellen, maybe you could try sharpening
your sword or quite fighting with a wooden one.  But I'm not gonna fight you because
I would lose, that's why I'm gonna BF Dirty Hole.  With a great axe.  A very sharp
Great Axe.  In fact, I think  I will kill you and stick your head on a pike for your
insolence.  That'll learn ya but good.
     And also I must say that it is good to see Philthy Phil back in all but his
fighting trim, which is not too trim, but in fact, quite large.  And grey.  With a
sore right hand.  Many have been the day that you gazed upon my manager's physique,
wishing you could be like him, with rugged good looks and very muscled bound, and a
thousand girls, all skinny, of course.  But in your stead you have decided to grow
humongous and lure porkers with the reward of an ear of corn.  Ahh, but it could be
worse.  I think.  May you fight hard and bravely, and remember it is better to fight
hard and lose, than not fight at all.

                              The Mongol

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon NIATOLI 
ISLAND, for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in NIATOLI ISLAND, 
with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--RAVAGING LORDS.  LIVING HELL had cause to celebrate, after ZOMBIFIED got 19 
points by beating TOBY.  CAROLINA LILY certainly had a baffled expression on hers 
face, after losing to MONOLYTH and losing 6 points in the process!  Duelmaster THE 
MONGOL from RAVAGING LORDS is going for the gold, as he Bloodfeuded THE SEWING 
CIRCLE's DIRTY HOWEL.  Ooh, the excitement!  THE MONGOL successfully staved off a 
grab for the roses by DIRTY HOWEL of THE SEWING CIRCLE.  Does NIATOLI ISLAND 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...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in NIATOLI ISLAND avoid JAILBIRDS.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of RAVAGING LORDS, so did that sorry team shy from 
JAILBIRDS If challenges were horses, RINTIRISSE could open up a fast food joint!  
Word has it RANGER suffered a romantic setback.  Note how he challenged RINTIRISSE, 
31 points his senior.  The gods smiled upon RANGER, in his upset fight against 
RINTIRISSE.  RANGER gets a win, 26 points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?)  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

The Mongol -- Jorja tells me I "asked for that."  I don't remember asking for it! --
Dirty Howel

M. Chardinee.  Hmm.  I didn't realize they let golems into the Chardinee Society.  It
seems all WRONG somehow. -- Korienellen
P.S.  And then, of course, I lost, and that was DEFINITELY wrong.

Ranger -- Hmm, would you believe me if I said you needed that loss to balance your
record?  To be undefeated is such a handicap, you know, it makes you a target.  Well,
it would make you a target if there was anyone to take aim at you, I guess.  But
seriously, I did you a favor.  Really. -- Rintirisse
P.S.  No need to return the favor, however!

The Osksi Noble was a long way from home, and now he's going to be buried a long way
from home.  I hear they have special graves for the standbys, so they can resurrect
easily.  This makes me wonder if maybe we're fighting zombies when we draw a standby?
-- Carolina Lily

Mike Vick -- Oh, right, that's just what I need, someone to come whooshing in from
retirement and beat the tracks out of me.  I am so thrilled, I can barely contain
myself. -- Beartrack

We salute all who participated in the tourney, with congratulations for Imnota God,
tourney victor at the Freshman level.  Even if his team isn't active here anymore. --
