                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I couldn't leave the title in the hands of a Vile Henchman, so... despite not
really wanting it for myself, I had to make a push to win.  The responsibilities of
rank, you know.

                                     Kenseljo

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of VEASTIAN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  THE FAMILY had 
cause to celebrate, after KIRVINJ got 20 points by beating TORN CLOTH.  Win some, 
lose some.  Speaking of which, KIRVINJ was winsome, after beating TORN CLOTH and 
seeing her lose 17 points.  In VEASTIAN, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we 
find ourselves a new Duelmaster, VILE HENCHMAN.  Word has it one team in VEASTIAN is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, JONAS SWITCHBLADE is the most 
challenged warrior.  Place your bets!  THE BIG TRAIN is the long shot of the week:  
they challenged SAMUEL CLIPPER, up by 26.  It's not whether you win or lose, but how 
many points you get (5).  Right, THE BIG TRAIN?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in VEASTIAN would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
