     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for PETER DAVISON, who pummelled 
VONNER WESS, to pocket 16 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 6 points to KHALHUMS DWARF.  (Discrete enough, BARLO 
CHELLS?) Well, Duelmaster DRAGON HARVEST Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's BLACK 
ORC.  Is a 15-17-0 good enough?  BLACK ORC found out that JURINE isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging 
into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  BLACK ORC in the Dark 
Arena wasn't enough for DRAGON HARVEST of AUTUMN SAGA.  Maybe that certain serving 
girl(?) at The Swinging Aardvark will be!  Those who owe 6103 of STREET WALKERS money 
and had written him off, take note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S 
MAD!!!  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.  JURINE, I leave you now.  
The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Swinging Aardvark.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir
