                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Wild-Eyed Fanatic was... less than I had expected.  Pathetic, really.  Too
intense and focused on other things than the fight.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in TROCAR, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--TRADERS OF TROCAR.  
Practice pays for CAO ZHENG, who pummelled SLAVE-WARRIOR, to pocket 30 points.  In 
TROCAR, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
TIAN HU.  Word has it one team in TROCAR 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?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TROCAR is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for TROCAR?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --

At least the Warrior-Mage knew enough to lose that fight.  I would have been annoyed
if *I* had been forced to lose it. -- Korasim

That was humiliating. -- Ghost of Galliot Jomon

Having met the Trocaran Deserter, I wonder why anybody CARES about him. -- Worzeel

Livermore -- A real opponent!  I guess I should be honored, but... nah, I'd be more
honored or at least gratified if I had WON. -- Aline Taras
