                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay, so like, they still say I'm Duelmaster, right?  Like, that's totally not
fair--everyone should get to be Duelmaster.  Fishwife and I were both there and we
both fought well, how come we're not both duelmaster?  We're all equal 'n stuff,
right?  So I'm doing a sit-in this week at GC headquarters.  Who's with me?  Let's
get a good drum circle going and chant stuff, 'n stuff.  Hey hey, ho ho, and all that
crap.  That'll show 'em--we shall not be moved!

                                                       Flour Child

                                      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.  BIG LAKE 
BANDITS had cause to celebrate, after TORG THUNDERCLAP got 21 points by beating 
KIELANDOR VENANSINDE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 8 points to BYL BONESNAPPER.  (Discrete enough, TIN SNIP?) A 
certain someone saw FLOUR CHILD at The Don't Drop Inn with the shakes, and now she 
fails to show up to defend hers throne.  What a pathetic slob!  Now I can't insult 
WARTLESS WITCH, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  
(Stop me if I lay it on too thick) 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.   
     And how sociable are NIATOLI ISLAND's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell 
some nasty rumors, the guys in SEA DOGS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No 
need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BIG LAKE 
BANDITS, so did that sorry team shy from SEA DOGS Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and TAVELSHAN KETHAL is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE 
SEWING CIRCLE proud!  Take heed NIATOLI ISLAND, of the unprincipled action of 
WARTLESS WITCH.  By challenging TAVELSHAN KETHAL, 17 points below her, WARTLESS WITCH 
besmirches the noble art of dueling.  WARTLESS WITCH won victory over TAVELSHAN 
KETHAL.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Admittedly Death waits for no one, but me thinks WHERE WOLF? of HALLOWIENERS 
(8-1-2) is being sent off a little prematurely.  You've heard about KIELANDOR 
VENANSINDE of THE SEWING CIRCLE.  Death plays no favorites, and neither do I.  What 
was a 14-15-0 doing on the fields in the first place?  Questions are being raised 
about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in NIATOLI 
ISLAND would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  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
