                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, immortality didn't do me much good in the Adepts tourney.  Not that those
gladiators didn't try to kill me, but I wouldn't let them!
     2-3.  I guess it could've been worse.

Steamed Muscles

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon LIN TIRIAN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SAND DANCERS had cause to celebrate, after 
MANDI COBRA got 15 points by beating PERSISTANT BEGGAR.  SERGEANT 2 certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to ROCK HARDMAN and losing 9 points in 
the process!  Well, Duelmaster STEAMED MUSCLES Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's 
MOUNTAIN TROLL.  Is a 16-4-2 good enough?  STEAMED MUSCLES successfully staved off a 
grab for the roses by MOUNTAIN TROLL of DARK ARENA.  Does LIN TIRIAN 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...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, VERA TEAGUE is the most challenged 
warrior.  SERGEANT 4 challenged THE MONGOOSE!  Who says MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 are just a 
bunch of wimps!  SERGEANT 4 of MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 kept his wits as he was overcame by 
THE MONGOOSE.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Those who owe STEAMED MUSCLES of SHEWISH BUFFET 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!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LIN TIRIAN is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  LIN TIRIAN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to 
foot my bill at The Lost Hope Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
