                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Great, The Count!  I really like defeating the Count.  And it gets me a winning
record and graduation, what more can I ask, huh?

                                     Black Tom

                                      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 TESLA SHARPE, who pummelled 
VETERAN MERCENARY, to pocket 7 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 3 points to EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  (Discrete 
enough, HAROUN SHADDAR?) What can be a greater victory?  THE COUNT has taken hers 
place as the top, as LIN TIRIAN's new Duelmaster.  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?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  LIN TIRIAN, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Lost Hope Inn.  'Til 
next time-- Novgorodny Vir

I don't care if this Dwarf is from Khalhums or the Halls of Khra, he's an offense in
my eyes.  We elves KNOW about dwarves. -- Tesla Sharpe
P.S.  He doesn't even comb his beard!

The Convicted Assassin will not get the better of me. -- Kurtal Duck

Mike -- You're an upstart. -- Delna Berin

I know Mordant isn't a nice place, but that's no reason for this fellow to go
deserting.  He should have stayed and tried to FIX things. -- Haroun Shaddar
P.S.  Actually, I'm Ratani, not Palani.  But the Commission never gets things like
that straight.
