                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, a second chance to write a Duelmaster Column.  How nice.  All that swirvin'
practice has greatly helped, I suspect.  As I promised, a second column would not be
about fightin', so I will make it about ME.
My faves:
food -- wet.  Not dry; chicken and liver based is best
location -- the back screened porch is MINE
comfort zone -- on Dad's lap in his zonk chair watchin sports
friend -- Beatrice, she's a calico
toy -- no toys, I'm a big boy, but I like to play with ants
bed -- Dad's office swivel chair (It swirvs)
     I live the high life and I am the Duelmaster.  What more could I want?
                   Irvin DMII

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARDIVENT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe 
you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to AZURE CLOUDS.  BARDS had cause 
to celebrate, after NAMELESS got 22 points by beating FINGERS BROOKE.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 7 points to 
NIMBLE NIMBUS.  (Discrete enough, MILLER?) In ARDIVENT, nothing is permanent (except 
Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, JOUBERT KLEE.  Word has it one team 
in ARDIVENT is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of ERRATA should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of ERRATA found 
their efforts at combat frustrated as FANDILS apparently had more important things to 
do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, CORBIN ROSS is the most challenged warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ARDIVENT farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Corbin Ross -- I got my swirvin' downpat.  I may be a tabby, but I go like a calico!
-- Irvin

Arlene Ross -- I think I must be lucky, because I am sure I am not that good. --
Clara Rose

All -- I rested.  No fight.  Read a book.  It was a nice break. -- Snuffy
(interpreted)

Joubert Klee -- Man oh man oh man!  My luck continues! -- Leroy

Shiftyeyed Volunteer -- Thank you for being there.  You have to do something with
those eyes if you want to be a fighter.  Go see an optometrist. -- Miller

Hey, Fandils, well done!  I am proud of you. -- Fandil The Wise

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Beware The Red Sands. -- WOF

Irvin -- Yes.  We're all quite fond of cats here.  Within reason, at least.  Some
cats are a little inclined to bully others, and that we do NOT stand for.  Within,
again, reason.  They can bully each other all they want out in the wide world, but
when it comes to chasing away a cat we've been feeding for a couple of years, in
order to take over the gravy train, then, no.  Then the squirt bottle comes out. --
Joubert Klee

One-four.  Drat.  And because *I* had the win, over a mere Ambitious Guard, *I* have
to write the official personal.  Not happily, let me tell you!  But still, there it
is.  Here we are.  Etc. -- Fingers Brooke
