                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You're a pretty little thing, Sage, but that doesn't mean I'm going to grovel
at your feet.  I wanted the title, I got the title, and nobody walks over me without
a fight.

                                      Hawthorn

P.S.  Or a really good bribe.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ROCANIS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for STEVE, who pummelled MALUS 
S'PROUT, to pocket 25 points.  SAGE certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, 
after losing to WOODWORM and losing 14 points in the process!  In ROCANIS, nothing is 
permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, CENTURION.  Word 
has it one team in ROCANIS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed 
life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BAD APPLES, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of AVERAGE GUYS, so did that sorry team 
shy from BAD APPLES As a confidence booster, PREATORIAN challenged GAFFER SMITH, down 
18 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, PREATORIAN?  
Warriors of ROCANIS!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base challenge of 
PREATORIAN?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ROCANIS is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ROCANIS 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

warriors.  Different thing. -- Malus S'prout
P.S.  But still piffling.

Josh -- That was not particularly average of you.  Unless you make sure to lose the
next one. -- Limbdropper
