                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Veteran Mercenary was a much better opponent than the Userous Merchant.  A
fine figure of a man.  But I still couldn't let him be duelmaster.

                                      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.  Practice pays 
for ARD-RI PENDRAGON, who pummelled EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 16 points.  
CONVICTED ASSASSIN found out that NIATOLI ISLAND isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in NIATOLI ISLAND is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Mismatched by 9 points, TAVELSHAN KETHAL was 
bested by SLAYBAGEL.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought SLAYBAGEL showed great 
skill and promise when he overcame TAVELSHAN KETHAL.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
The manager at SEA DOGS must have some new strategy for sending WHEELHOUSE, a warrior 
with 2-0-0, to the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  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!  
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
