                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well!  This time, we DO have some real competition.  Not that some the standbys
aren't "real" competition in some ways, but it's the principle of the thing.  I'd
take this opportunity to boast about how wonderful I am, but anyone can see that just
by looking at the front page of the newsletter.  So, instead, I will just say how
glad I am to see another team fighting here.  It gives me hope of being able to dump
this column on somebody else.  Of course, graduation would do that, too, and I am
willing to graduate at any time.  I think I need another rating.  Bear that in mind
if you get a chance to teach me.

                                    Kharijanh

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon VEASTIAN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for FRANKLIN ST., who pummelled 
BLACK ZANJO, to pocket 23 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, FRANKLIN 
ST. was winsome, after beating BLACK ZANJO and seeing him lose 16 points.  Out with 
the old, in with the new.  Enter VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, handily defeating KHARIJANH.  
With 84 points, LOLITA MARIA of THE FAMILY takes the position of VEASTIAN's 
Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in VEASTIAN is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Admittedly Death waits for no one, but me thinks WOOT! of UNC COLLEGE RADIO (2-0-0) 
is being sent off a little prematurely.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in VEASTIAN is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  VEASTIAN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to 
foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
