                             Notes from the arena champ.

What is the chance of me being here two turns in a row?!?  Assur says not bad at all.  
He also says I have proven my ability to lose fights without a shadow of a doubt and 
that if I don't win, my chances to lose the throne go dramatically up!  I guess that 
means I should take the winning strategy and win my fight.

Hmmm...  Easier said than done...  At least I have a decent chance to fight an NPC.  I 
CHOOSE...

THE DWARF!!!

                                          -- Joey

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at MMA NICKNAMES left the arena dejected, after being kicked 
out of the top spot by HIP HOP HEROES.  Good show!  Practice pays for BARRACUDA, who 
pummelled LBA GROUPIE, to pocket 13 points.  VENOMOUS CONCUBINE found out that 
TALCAMA isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are TALCAMA's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     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 TALCAMA would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
