                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     All for the best, Tiger Jonsalmin.  Furry Lunch does not have quite the same
ring to it.

Naked Lunch

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon LIN TIRIAN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
SAND DANCERS can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays for KORYLUS VRAE, who 
pummelled MONSTER MASH, to pocket 10 points.  GREEN GIANT certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to AMBITIOUS GUARD and losing 16 points in the 
process!  In LIN TIRIAN, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a 
new Duelmaster, TIGER JONSALMIN.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     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.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  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 LIN TIRIAN?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

We'll stick around for as long as we can.  Although getting our results four days
before the arena is due is not helpful.  Here is hoping I put my warriors on
maintenance! -- One Armed Bandit

Naked Lunch -- Well, darn.  The idea having you for lunch, with or without clothing,
was growing on me.  And now you've rejected it!  I call this cruel. -- Tiger
Jonsalmin

Steamed Muscles -- What the heck is going ON?  It's like there's a leak in the
hypocaust or something, so that the anteroom to the arena is full of steam!  I can't
fight when I'm all relaxed by steam. -- Urik Darkheart

Green Giant -- It bugs me that you're so much taller than me.  Would it help me, do
you think, if the bugs in question were aphids? -- Korylus Vrae

Monster Mash -- I'm NOT a monster!  There was no need to mash me into the sands.
Besides, it was messy. -- Silver Slim

Lime Jhelum -- Well, that wraps up an oh-fer turn for us, and I will NOT take full
responsibility for it.  I lost ONE fight, and each of my teammates did just as
poorly. -- Rock Hardman
