                             Notes from the arena champ.

What a surprise!?!  When nobody likes me and my own self recognition that my skills 
are not in the 'superior' side, I did not expect to be sitting here.  But I guess 
sometimes you are in the right place at the right time and are faced with a challenge 
that you are somewhat ideally set up to succeed at.  Such was the case last turn, when 
I took down Cuneiform.

Oh and for the record, us referees are given instructions on how to call games.  
Sometimes we are told from above that we should 'look' the other way.  Sometimes we 
are told to call games tight.

                                          -- Blind Ref

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for NINHURSAG, who pummelled MENACE, to pocket 17 points. 
A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 5 
points to HAVOCBRINGER.  (Discrete enough, NK POWER?) What can be a greater victory?  
BONESCRAPER has taken his place as the top, as SNOWBOUND's new Duelmaster.  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of BASH BROS HOCKEY should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of BASH BROS 
HOCKEY found their efforts at combat frustrated as MESOPOTAMIA apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, STING is the most challenged warrior. 
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in SNOWBOUND would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in SNOWBOUND is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  SNOWBOUND, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has 
agreed to foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
