                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Kung-Fu Master loses to me, and I'm offically duelmaster again.  Life is odd.

                                   Jitney Johnny

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CLIFFHOME, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  HOLMES ON THE RANGE had cause to celebrate, after 
BASKERVILLE PIG got 15 points by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, LOMAX was winsome, after beating HAMBURGER HO DOWN and seeing him 
lose 11 points.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT JITNEY 
JOHNNY is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are CLIFFHOME's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Does JINDA-BAN 
care so little for their fallen comrade, THEA DOZZIER?  CLOD was heard at The Choking 
Ogre sneering...  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be 
wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  CLIFFHOME, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to 
foot my bill at The Choking Ogre.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

A Khalhums Dwarf.  Well, I suppose they gotta eat, too. -- Lum Busby

Seems like I died somewhere... Sunset, maybe?  And now I've got a new body and my
name is spelled wrong.  Okay, I can work with this. -- Sauvarn Maur

Very strange.  I thought we were supposed to end up in Osksi. -- Kevsilessa Kiro

We might be better off here than in Osksi.  Let's not do anything hasty. -- Morindel
Salm

Master Darque -- You've got morons, I've got displaced persons.  The life of a
manager is full of incident. -- Jorja
P.S.  But I think Morindel is correct, and they'll be better off here.  I might even
see about getting Sauvarn's name fixed... or maybe not.

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
