                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Damn.  I though that saying I'd tell you more next time would jinx me and lose
me the title.  In the immortal words of Debby Tonte, As if!  And now I'm graduating,
too.  Serious bummer.  I might have to actually *fight on the Isle!*  Not a fun
prospect.  It's possible I might have written more, if the Hands hadn't been
recovering from the tourney, but as it is, not likely, I'm afraid.  Jorja's been in a
mood, too.  Just one thing after another.

Hori Bull

P.S.  Halberd?  You're kidding me, right?

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in WILLAF, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--PUNNY AMINALS.  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as PANDORA'S CARDS can 
attest...  Practice pays for THE HIEROPHANT, who pummelled BLACK INDEKKER, to pocket 
20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, THE HIEROPHANT was winsome, 
after beating BLACK INDEKKER and seeing him lose 16 points.  In WILLAF, nothing is 
permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 56TH AND WABASHA.  
So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  
Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are WILLAF's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in BLOOD ON THE TRACKS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No 
need to avoid 'em.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, PANDORA'S CARDS 
scurried away from BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and JACK OF HEARTS is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
BLOOD ON THE TRACKS proud!  GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA challenged HAZEL NUTTE!  Who says 
CHUCKS' PINUPS are just a bunch of wimps!  GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA of CHUCKS' PINUPS kept 
hers wits as she was overcame by HAZEL NUTTE.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in WILLAF would I avoid!   
     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 WILLAF?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

A salute to Horemheb, Duelmaster.  Well done again, Champ. -- Midas

Jane Mansfield -- Hubba, hubba, hubba.  I had my way with you and thoroughly enjoyed
it.  Gold is a gal's best friend. (wink) -- Au

Khor's, Chuck's, Firepower, The Art Of War.... Welcome to Willaf.  I have been remiss
in not greeting you all in the golden manner which you deserve. -- Midas and The
Golden Gladiators

Mac-10 -- Formidable, indeed; but the tongue is mightier than the sword and sometimes
the firepower. -- Golden Tongue

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Gold. -- Midas
Personals for dm 16

Hierophant -- I don't let authority figures push me around, because *I* am the
ultimate authority figure.  God-king. -- Hori Bull

Matching me with the Venomous Concubine is a joke.  Or an insult.  She's all honey
and chocolate syrup for me.  It's all just a TRICK to let Horible vault over my head
and graduate out of turn.  Trust me, I *will* have my revenge on him.  God-king?  As
if! -- Black Indekker

The rest of us lost, and we don't feel like talking about.  At least, not enough to
overcome Jorja's disinclination to sit here for much longer.  To those we fought,
good fight. -- Hazel Nutte, Sofa'Yam, and Whip Sawyer
