                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Amazing how many people like to play with fire.  Good try, Flame Spider, but
today, not good enough.

                                     Xavan Yole

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  AUTUMN SAGA had cause to celebrate, after FALL 
PRINCESS got 9 points by beating KUNG-FU MASTER.  FALLING LEAF certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to FLAME SPIDER and losing 4 points in 
the process!  XAVAN YOLE successfully staved off a grab for the roses by DECAY of 
AUTUMN SAGA.  Does JURINE have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are JURINE's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Everyone is famous 
for fifteen minutes, and CHAM DUGAN is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
MIDDLE WAY 16 proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JURINE is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
JURINE?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Nitehawk Sparkwing -- Surely you realized that you ran a risk of setting your wings
on fire?  I mean, it's obvious!  Very decorative in the dark, but how can you fly
with singed wings? -- Cham Dugan

Bonesnap -- No doubt in many cases, but I have strong bones.  So far, anyway. --
Vonner Wess

Cloud Stalker -- Weird.  I've never been stalked by a cloud before.  It's almost
unnerving. -- Barlo Chells

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
