                             Notes from the arena champ.

     In fact, life is VERY odd.  This time, a Khalhums Dwarf defeats me--I was never
much good with dwarves--and I remain duelmaster and graduate.  Okay, I can go with
this.  In the meantime, and I do suspect "mean" is the word, you guys will have
the... experience of dealing with some strange strangers.  "Overflow from Osksi,"
they say.  Seriously foreign, anyway.

                                   Jitney Johnny

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in CLIFFHOME, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--JINDA-BAN.  Practice pays for SAUVARN 
MAUR, who pummelled PERSISTENT BEGGAR, to pocket 7 points.  LUM BUSBY certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and losing 4 
points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, of CLIFFHOME, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome CLIFFHOME's 
Number 1.  Word has it one team in CLIFFHOME is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Will JINDA-BAN never avenge THEA DOZZIER's death???  Oh brave(?) new world, that has 
such people in it!  'Tis new to me!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes 
for thee.   
     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.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for CLIFFHOME?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Looks like the Khalhums Dwarf is on a roll.  At least I survived. -- Lum Busby

Chicken Cha-Cha -- Needs more hot peppers. -- Kevsilessa Kiro

My Deer Watson -- I have just the marinade. -- Morindel Salm
P.S.  A marinade is a kind of dance, is it not?

Uncut Hare -- You're probably lucky to have started at this season.  In March, hares
are wild. -- Sauvarn Maur
P.S.  Deuces, too.

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!
