                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Assur told me to not get too comfortable in my retirement.  Apparently he is
preparing a presentation to use new weapons in the defense of Alastari.  I'm not sure
how effective they'll be, but as a distraction, I can think of none better.  Beware
of flying dirty diapers!

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CLIFFHOME, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at BASH BROS CHILDREN left the arena 
dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by ONE TOO MANY.  Good show!  
JINDA-BAN had cause to celebrate, after SOLDILLIA VRO got 18 points by beating JELLY 
BELLY.  JELLY BELLY certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to 
SOLDILLIA VRO and losing 17 points in the process!  Well, Duelmaster DIRTY DIAPERS 
Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's WURM KIN.  Is a 15-5-0 good enough?  The crowds 
were amazed this turn, as WURM KIN killed the Duelmaster, DIRTY DIAPERS, leaving BASH 
BROS CHILDREN in mourning.  The audience got their money's worth, as they witnessed 
ENTEI attain the throne at the cost of DIRTY DIAPERS' life!  Word has it one team in 
CLIFFHOME is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are CLIFFHOME's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SHEWISH CANDY, alone 
and unchallenged.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BASH BROS 
CHILDREN, so did that sorry team shy from SHEWISH CANDY Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and VORONSAL MAUR is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
JINDA-BAN proud!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Condolences to Talks Nonstop.  Congrats to Dirty Diapers. -- Jelly Belly

Dirty Diapers -- Yes, I've heard that they go away eventually.  I just hadn't had any
personal experience with it, and now that I have, well, I'm going to avoid future
encounters. -- Korgendal Fars

And we all congratulate Dirty Diapers, which somehow seems like JUST the thing to
send to the Isle. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

Defiance -- And good luck to you in the tourney. -- Mendarlin Voro

Talks Nonstop -- And they are welcome to lose to me, too! -- Voronsal Maur

Not one of our better days in the arena.

Jelly Belly -- Ugh.  More like queasy belly. -- Soldillia Vro

Sick Days -- Vitamin C. -- Voronsal Maur, off to eat another orange

One Too Many Tacos?  Not likely. -- Mendarlin Voro
P.S.  But the last three were soggy.

Taxes -- (sniveling, near tears)  ONE is too many!  See if I ever teach YOU anything
again! -- Ghost of Alnorisen Toren

Voronsal Maur -- You don't teach that well and I'm thinking if we keep fighting, my
sick days may not be because of my children. -- Sick Days

Shots -- No fair, you've been resting for weeks... months...  No wonder you were able
to outlast me. -- Bedtime

Thanks to the infamous Kung Fu Cheater, I am now the manager of Talks No More. --
