                             Notes from the arena champ.

     "I miss Vilmi," Miklos acknowledged with a careful mental shrug, lest he see his 
emotion and take it out to examine any further.  His brother Vilmos had departed for 
the Isle many months ago.  Someday, he hoped to see Vilmi again.  
     The cool hardness of Miller's Rock soothed his back as he stared up into the 
clear Murskan sky at the stars.  The smell of colitas drifted over to him.  
Apparently, the throne came with privileges.
     "We all do, Mikki, we all do."
     Mica lay on the same large rock, contemplating the soft red glow of his pipe as 
he got his smoke on.  He coughed a bit and the leaned over towards his teammate.  
"Here, try shum of this.  Might help with all the holsh Bisque put in you."
     "I'm good.  Going to try to get another challenge through to Bisque?"
     Mikki looked for and found constellations he recognized.  "Get him off my back?  
The bastard doesn't even show me anything I don't already know."
     "You know it my brother.  I'll get him."
     "Thanks.  You see up there," Miklos pointed, "where that group of stars are?  
That's called Pisces."
     "Feces?  Who are you going to challenge?"
     "Pisces," Mikki corrected.  His shoulders hunched involuntarily as he belly 
laughed.  "I think I am going to leave the Boosnatch bloodfeud to one of our younger 
pups.  At least the first one," Mikki added wickedly.  "Now over there, that's the 
bull, Taurus."
     "Thash shum bull-"
     "Now what is that?" Miklos interrupted and sat up, staring at the ruddy glow 
coming over from Sander's rock.  Looks like they weren't the only ones enjoying cool 
night air.
     "Like I said, thash shum bull-"
     "No, no.  I think that's Aries.  One of them anyways, maybe Lambda.  Actually, 
looks like two of them."  Miklos squinted, then looked away and continued softly.  "I 
didn't think that was legal here in Murska."
     "Ish a free world, my brother.  Serioushly, have shum of this fine moke."
     "Hit me."

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon MURSKA, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
PHILANTHROPISTS can attest, moving up by 0.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster 
were disappointed by MONSTER BISQUE, of SATAN'S SOUPS, who despite a 10-2-0 couldn't 
overcome MURSKA's Number 1.  Word has it one team in MURSKA is taking speech lessons 
to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of 
PHILANTHROPISTS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  
The warriors of PHILANTHROPISTS found their efforts at combat frustrated as HOUSE 
JHEREG apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were 
horses, MIKLOS could open up a fast food joint!  Mismatched by 9 points, WENDAL 
defeated MIKLOS.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought MIKLOS showed great skill 
and promise when he was subdued by WENDAL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Never one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see HOUSE JHEREG 
retaliate against PHILANTHROPISTS in bloodfeud!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, 
the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for MURSKA?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
