                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Venomous Concubine.  How tedious.  Of course we couldn't let HIM be
duelmaster, but still.
     I know this isn't much of a "column," but what is there to write about?  The
Venomous Concubine is not inspiring.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JURINE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  BLACK PEARL had cause 
to celebrate, after ECLIPSE got 20 points by beating BARTON DAWES.  VICTOR certainly 
had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to BLADEDANCER and losing 18 
points in the process!  DELLEA ERAMIN successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
VETERAN MERCENARY of JURINE.  Does JURINE have no one talented enough to dethrone 
her?  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.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  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 JURINE farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

And a Convicted Assassin.  A shrimp in too much armor, more of a backstabber than a
gladiator, but... ah, well.  It's a win. -- Vonner Wess

Victor -- You BLEW ME UP, you MONSTER!  I'll never forgive you for that. -- Ghost of
Yancy Zaran

Andres -- Bombs.  Nobody warned me about bombs.  Nobody TRAINED me to deal with
bombs. -- Deemer Eppt the Ill-Used
P.S.  At least I made you work for it.

A Convicted Thief is someone I could beat in my sleep.  In fact, now I look more
closely, I think I *did* defeat him in my sleep, which led to him being arrested and
convicted, I suppose. -- Barton Dawes
