     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Managers were muttering after ALLERGY showed 
DWES EG what they could do:  2-1-0 to move up by 24.  Like a chunk of francium heaved 
into a wet pond, WAY OF THE BLADE M1 blew up the rankings to 14!  Perhaps it is WAY 
OF THE BLADE L2 members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 24th to 10th 
last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Managers were muttering after ERATTA1 showed 
DWES EG what they could do:  3-0-0 to move up by 55.  Like a chunk of francium heaved 
into a wet pond, PRACTICAL blew up the rankings to 19!  Managers were muttering after 
MEDAL OF HONOR C4 showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 24.  
Perhaps it is MEDAL OF HONOR D2 members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 
39th to 15th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved 
into a wet pond, BRANDS blew up the rankings to 25!  Managers were muttering after 
WOTB A24 showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 24.  Perhaps it is 
WOTB A22 members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 46th to 22nd last 
week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, 
WAY OF STEEL K4 blew up the rankings to 27!  Managers were muttering after MISKATONIC 
U showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 24.  Rumor has it an 
incurable disease has swept the stable of WOTB A09.  Note their drop in the rankings 
from 6th to 29th.  Watch out!!!  Perhaps it is WOTB A23 members' intannibility that 
enabled them to move from 56th to 30th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a 
chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, WOTB 25 blew up the rankings to 24!  
Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is WOTB A21, after 
suffering a 19 drop in ranking.  Managers were muttering after WOTB A54 showed DWES 
EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 24.  Like a chunk of francium heaved into 
a wet pond, WOTB A11 blew up the rankings to 24!  Perhaps it is WAY OF THE BLADE S7 
members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 60th to 35th last week...  
(Less time in the sun...) The boys at WAY OF THE BLADE R3 aren't the happy-go-lucky 
bunch we all know and love, after suffering a 18 drop last week.  Rumor has it an 
incurable disease has swept the stable of WAY OF THE BLADE R0.  Note their drop in 
the rankings from 19th to 37th.  Watch out!!!  Thinking about sending their team 
manager to the Dark Arena is WOTB A84, after suffering a 11 drop in ranking.  The 
boys at ENIGMA 1 aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after 
suffering a 11 drop last week.  Rumor has it an incurable disease has swept the 
stable of RENS.  Note their drop in the rankings from 29th to 40th.  Watch out!!!  
Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is CATS, after suffering 
a 38 drop in ranking.  Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet pond, MEDAL OF 
HONOR F4 blew up the rankings to 25!  Managers were muttering after FACE showed DWES 
EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up by 22.  Perhaps it is TELS members' 
intannibility that enabled them to move from 78th to 53rd last week...  (Less time in

disease has swept the stable of DRINKS!.  Note their drop in the rankings from 53rd 
to 79th.  Watch out!!!  Practice pays for CROSS, who pummelled HAYOMYS, to pocket 31 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 20 points to LENHART.  (Discrete enough, AUGHURN?) THE WAD O' GAS found out 
being DWES EG's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  The 
arena was more crowded than usual this time, as QUEEN faced DWES EG's Duelmaster.  In 
DWES EG, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
QUEEN.  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 noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of WAY OF THE BLADE R0, alone and unchallenged.  
The warriors of WAY OF THE BLADE R0 found their efforts at combat frustrated as DARK 
TOADS 05Q apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  You've heard 
about HAYOMYS of WOTB A26.  Death plays no favorites, and neither do I.  What was a 
8-6-0 doing on the fields in the first place?  He who lives by the sword (or maul)... 
Witness HAYOMYS of WOTB A26, felled by CROSS of RENS.  Questions are being raised 
about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in DWES EG 
would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DWES EG farewell--
