                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I never said I was good at that Kung-Fu stuff, and the style match was against
me, but still, it feels wrong to take the title on a loss.  Still, it feels right to
be leaving, finally--and while still alive!  I figure it was the political points
that did it.

                                     Cham Dugan

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for SIDEWINDER SMURF, who 
pummelled WALLIS YENT, to pocket 20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
TOM BAKER was winsome, after beating VONNER WESS and seeing him lose 13 points.  What 
can be a greater victory?  FALLING LEAF has taken his place as the top, as JURINE's 
new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BLACK PEARL, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of VIKING LINGO, so did that sorry team 
shy from BLACK PEARL  
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  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 JURINE?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Counter Offer -- Yeah?  How about you offer ME all that many skills?  I could use
'em, and I wouldn't leave 'em lying around on any counter. -- Vonner Wess

Is there some reason why we can't ship these pesky dwarves back to Khalhums? -- Barlo

Tom Baker -- Who are you?  No way you're going to "play doctor" with me. -- Wallis

Sidewinder Smurf -- Sorry about freaking out on you like that.  Next time, I'll keep

have to go. -- Zakalus Ardon

Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
