                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Another DM Column?  Come on, now.  This is no fun.  Writing a column?  Do I get
paid for it?  Do I even get PPs for it?  Do I get awarded skills for it?  I really,
really need some skills, you know?
     I have been here for 35 fights.  That's long enough.  I'm a lover; not a
fighter!  Geez!  I need some time off.  Maybe that Shop-til-we-drop trip is the
thing, Katerina.  Let's do it!

          Mildred Leona, DMIV

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  SERPENT'S HOLD had cause to celebrate, after 
GABBERT got 24 points by beating MARCI FOOTE.  MONSIGNOR MARK certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to M. CHARDINEE and losing 10 points in the 
process!  KATERINA COLLIN found out that ARDIVENT isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in ARDIVENT is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ARDIVENT's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SERPENT'S HOLD, 
alone and unchallenged.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of 
FANDILS, so did that sorry team shy from SERPENT'S HOLD  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  The manager at 
SERPENT'S HOLD must have some new strategy for sending BYE, a warrior with 2-0-1, to 
the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes 
for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  ARDIVENT, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Seaside Manor.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir
