                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The secret is out.  Even the most devout religious followers are stlil more than
human.  We make mistakes, we fail to do what our God wants us to.  In short, we are
no different than the rest of you on those accounts.  But that does not change our
message and it CERTAINLY does not change who GOD is.  Yes, I missed writing a column
proclaiming His greatness last turn, but I'm back this turn.  The fact is, God does
not need me to proclaim His greatness.  His greatness is independent of me.  Which is
a good thing, because I cannot add anything to God's.  In fact, absolutely do NOT use
me as your image of who God is.
     Find out who God is and you will see why I, no different than you, tell you to
turn to him and give up your current selfish and sinful ways!

-- In Your Face

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DAL SHANG.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  SAND DANCERS had 
cause to celebrate, after LORAND TEN SORN got 25 points by beating DRIVING A ROLLS.  
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, LORAND TEN SORN was winsome, after beating 
DRIVING A ROLLS and seeing him lose 4 points.  Duelmaster IN YOUR FACE from BASH BROS 
EVANGELIST is going for the gold, as he challenged SAND DANCERS' KORDAL T'ROHN.  Ooh, 
the excitement!  IN YOUR FACE successfully staved off a grab for the roses by KORDAL 
T'ROHN of SAND DANCERS.  Does DAL SHANG have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  
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!  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, KORDAL T'ROHN is the 
most challenged warrior.  As a confidence booster, ON THE CORNER challenged MARAN TEN 
PALAN, down 45 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, ON THE 
CORNER?  Warriors of DAL SHANG!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base 
challenge of ON THE CORNER?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
DAL SHANG would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure 
of writing Spyreports for DAL SHANG?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

Kurlo -- A close fight.  Very kind of you to let me win out in the end.  Your sins
will surely be forgiven for your sacrifice.  In fact, if you want to be absolutely
sure of your sins being forgiven and receiving God's grace and power in your life,
let me tell you about other sacrifices you should make, sacrifices of a financial
nature. -- Driving a Rolls

Maran -- The message is simple.  You continue to come by and hear it!  What is
stopping you from changing your life? -- On the Corner

We salute the tourney participants, who are more numerous than you'd think from
looking around the arena on a typical fight day. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

In Your Face -- If I were a mirror, you'd have broken me.  Maybe you did.  Maybe I am
a mirror?  Hmm. -- Kordal t'Rohn

On the Corner -- I'm looking for a street with no corners.  It'd be safer. -- Maran
ten Palan

Driving a Rolls -- Run down, again, by an eight-horse chariot.  They shouldn't be
allowed in town. -- Kurlo ten Doshan

And Normar the Blond goes down twice.  That works. -- Lorand ten Sorn and Lindis tyl
