                             Notes from the arena champ.

You all know me. I have been here before.  (This is number four.)  I have a few things 
to say to you, and I appreciate your listening.

Arena fighting is a serious thing.  It can lead to aggressiveness beyond what is 
normal and acceptable.  It can lead to an intent to kill.  As a sport, it is a 
terrific outlet for undesirable emotions.  It can be difficult to maintain the sense 
of Sport.

Perhaps you should all come to Mass Sunday, and listen to the sermon.  It will do you 
proper, and it may well save a life.  Prayer is a mighty thing.  You will all be in 
mine.

                                          -- Father Bankowski, DMIV

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon IAYE, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at WRATHMEN left the arena dejected, after 
being kicked out of the top spot by THE YOUNG ONES.  Good show!  What's a move up by 
3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to HER 
BEST ASSETS.  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but THE YOUNG 
ONES will tell you 6-1-0 is nothing to laugh at...  THE YOUNG ONES had cause to 
celebrate, after RICK got 25 points by beating POLITE BEGGAR.  Now I can't insult 
BOUNCY BOTTOM, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  
(Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in IAYE is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     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 WRATHMEN, alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, LENPROS scurried away from WRATHMEN.  Oh, the shame!  
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and PUFFY LIPS is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't HER BEST ASSETS proud!  Place your bets!  AUNT BERNICE is 
the long shot of the week:  they challenged PUFFY LIPS, up by 35.  Fixed fights?  
Paybacks?  Blind luck?  Whatever, AUNT BERNICE challenged PUFFY LIPS, AUNT BERNICE 
the underdog by 35 points.  Do my ears deceive me?  TANK (outclassed by 27 points) 
challenged LONG LEGS, in what promises to be a fight.(!) It's not whether you win or 
lose, but how many points you get (1).  Right, TANK?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
IAYE, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Rat Nest.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
