                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Niytyole!

     First of all, good fight, crab smasher.
     I am the first duelmaster from our organization in over 10 years.  My origins in
duelmasters go back a long time... many, many years.  Even so, my experience on the
sands is not as extensive as some may think.
     I have what is known as "limited immortality" which i achieved by ingesting a
potion several centuries ago.  I have not aged a day since...  It's a good thing too
as i have been "killed" more than once.  For those of you who are wondering what it
feels like: it kinda stings!  I am not invincible, so i feel pain just like the rest
of you.  I sustain injury and can run out of energy, but i cannot die.  When i am
injured sufficiently, i  fall into what would appear to be a very deep sleep.  I
always wake up completely healed and very, very hungry.
     Anyhow, after an excellent battle with crab smasher, i began my normal training
regimen.  And while i anticipate a match up with the caged rat, i will stay with my
normal routine just in case.  With the tournament approaching, i don\'t know who will
be resting and who will not.

Until then, stay classy Niytyole...

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon NIATOLI 
ISLAND, for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for TORMENT, who 
pummelled WINDMILL WILLY, to pocket 18 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, TORMENT was winsome, after beating WINDMILL WILLY and seeing him lose 16 
points.  CAGED RAT found out that NIATOLI ISLAND isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  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!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
CAGED RAT is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't RAVAGING LORDS proud!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in NIATOLI ISLAND is the highlight of my life.  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

Dominion -- Easy to say, harder to do. -- Spinning Star

Agony -- I don't see why I should win just to add luster to a stupid typo of a name.

Why would anybody bother to take that dumb, pathetic thief to court?  Just throw him
