                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Alas, Methos was not ready to fight tourney caliber warriors.  My apologies to
his manager, but those scimitars are a little too sharp.  It was not my intention or
desire to put Methos 6 feet under, but such things happen, even to the best warriors.
     I am probably the best of the Next Generation strikers, though the youngest. 
Assur says his plans for us are coming along nicely.  He intends to throw a party
such as Talcama has never seen, if the commission will work with him.  The goal: all
5 Next Generation warriors to ADM at the same time.

Time to get ready to fight!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TALCAMA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  HIP HOP HEROES?  
Who?  NEXT GENERATION is the top team these days, buddies!  He who laughs last didn't 
get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe HIP HOP HEROES.  Last week they 
got 0-0-0 to drop by 5!  STONE COLD had cause to celebrate, after GRANITE got 17 
points by beating ALBUQUERQUE BOONE.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 14 points to GRANITE.  (Discrete enough, 
ALBUQUERQUE BOONE?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by ROWDY 
RODDY, of STONE COLD, who despite a 6-7-0 couldn't overcome TALCAMA's Number 1.  Word 
has it one team in TALCAMA is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed 
life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in SHEPHERDS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of THE MENTORS, so did that sorry team 
shy from SHEPHERDS  
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Joey -- I can see that.  Since you wrote me a personal, everybody on the High Way
thinks we should, in courtesy, write back.  We went two-three again, which is not
impressive, but we're HERE.  I suppose that's something. -- Albuquerque Boone, for
the High Way

Legacy -- Dammit, Uncle Ralph said he was leaving that to ME, so how did YOU get into
his will? -- Chicago Dawes

Harlequin -- Um... overpoweringly female, yes.  But right out in the middle of the
arena? -- Gallatin Hughes

Common -- But common WHAT?  The mystery of that kept me up for HOURS before the
fight. -- Innisfree Jones

Busta -- I'll busta you one. -- Albuquerque Boone

Headband -- At least you're a golem.  I would shudder to think of a live headband.
Like something out of Sherlock Holmes, you know?  A speckled headband, and a corpse.
Not for me. -- Edingburg Finn

Nasty Nas -- Assur says you're my long lost twin.  Was that any way to treat me? --
Timmy

Stetsasonic -- Thanks for being a great teacher.  Oh wait, you taught nothing.
Thanks for nothing. -- Joey
