                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One of Sherlock's boys tells A Bad Lie, and I refute it out of hand.  Truly, the
truth, properly used, shall make me Duelmaster yet again.
     Ah, you will say, perhaps, that A Bad Lie is female?  That is the lie.

                                    Kirvinj

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for KHARIJANH, who pummelled CAPTURED ORC, to pocket 8 
points.  KIRVINJ successfully staved off a grab for the roses by A BAD LIE of IS THAT 
A CLUE?.  Does VEASTIAN have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     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 VEASTIAN is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  VEASTIAN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has 
agreed to foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
