                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     No Pair 5-13-10-17-15-13-11, yes that's right.  He lacks the strength to use a
hatchet.  Really, Kudzu, you had to kill Crazy Pineapple, you could kill this pud.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  WHERE I'VE EATEN had cause to celebrate, after DEEP BLU got 18 points 
by beating KHULBADD.  FOGO certainly had a baffled expression on its face, after 
losing to ROCKSNAIL and losing 9 points in the process!  JURGENHALEN found out that 
RODEKI isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
VENETIAN CINQUE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of WHERE I'VE EATEN, so did that sorry 
team shy from VENETIAN CINQUE SUICIDE KING challenged KARMIC KUDZU!  Who says 
DEALER'S CHOICE are just a bunch of wimps!  SUICIDE KING of DEALER'S CHOICE kept his 
wits as he was subdued by KARMIC KUDZU.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in RODEKI is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
