                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yeah, I know I am supposed to say something, but I think I've said it all in my 
three previous DM columns.  I expect to get my invite next round, so I will be saying 
"bye" to you all soon.
     May the best dog win.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at BULLDOGS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of 
the top spot by ANIMAL FARM.  Good show!  Good things come to those who fight well, 
as AARDVARK & CO. can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays for TEH PERFORATOR, who 
pummelled BLACK BEARD, to pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
TEH PERFORATOR was winsome, after beating BLACK BEARD and seeing him lose 18 points.  
FIDO successfully staved off a grab for the roses by TOUCAN SAM of FLAGRANT FOWL.  
Does ARUAK CITY have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in 
ARUAK CITY is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet 
it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SCORPIONS, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of SCORPIONS found their efforts at combat frustrated as BULLDOGS apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BESTARIUS is the most 
challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Q:  What's a 
record like 16-24-0 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  This week's winner: 
FOGHORN LEGHORN of FLAGRANT FOWL!  SHEWISH GIANT in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for 
RUBY RATTLER of ANIMAL FARM.  Maybe that certain serving girl(?) at The Victory 
Tavern will be!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be 
wasting!   
     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.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARUAK CITY?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
