                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, great, I beat Seef Haraine, the Venomous Concubine, and now I guess I have
to look forward to Spike McGold coming back and beating me up.  Why does he have to
hang out with her?  Why haven't the monsters eaten him?  Why is life so mean to me?

                                       Larsen E

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THE GOLDEN FISH had cause to celebrate, after FINDELLIS got 14 points 
by beating FRATSFA SLAVE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 4 BRIDGES was 
winsome, after beating KORONEDUS and seeing him lose 4 points.  Those who hoped for a 
new Duelmaster were disappointed by VETERAN MERCENARY, of NIANIA, who despite a 0-0-0 
couldn't overcome NIANIA's Number 1.  Word has it one team in NIANIA is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are NIANIA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the warriors 
of THE GOLDEN FISH should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, OUT THE WINDOW scurried away from THE 
GOLDEN FISH.  Oh, the shame!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in NIANIA is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Helesa Green -- Ah, but I've been practicing, you see!  If you stay in Niania, you
may, I don't say you WILL, but you MAY see me and my teammates, okay, my teammates
and I, go out and help our graduated teammate Spike fight MONSTERS at his fishing
camp.  So I have to stay in practice, on my toes, up to the top of my ability, all
that tedious stuff. -- Verelesse
P.S.  I bet you could come too, if you'd like.  Of course, if you're a tourney team,
this may be inconvenient for you.  Whatever.  Somebody has to do the tourneys, after
all, and I'm just glad it isn't me.

Jirik Durste -- Why didn't you learn something?  I was demonstrating some of my BEST
moves.  (glower)  Are you one of those humans who thinks it's "low class" to learn

from a karragit?  If so, fie upon you. -- Sashinda
P.S.  I don't know what that "fie upon you" thing means, but it sounds good, doesn't
it?

4 Bridges -- I came to you, and I just didn't know which way to go! -- Findellis

Gerskol Killit -- Drat.  That is embarrassing. -- Koronedus

Managers of NIANIA, take heed.  We are coming!  Bringing chaos and creating havok
unto your sands we shall.  We are coming!   We will bring pain and spilled blood upon
you.  The drums have begun, the terror begins!  We are coming!  Prepare for havok! --
TEAM HAVOK

Divaka Manwar -- Listen!  It wasn't ME who took your payroll!  You want to get after
the THIEF. -- Tarash Tarindanall, Creative Accountant
P.S.  Damn, it's impossible to argue with these golems....

Larsen E -- You actually handled that fight well; I was surprised.  But Spike will
still come and beat you up.  I will enjoy watching it. -- Seef Haraine, Venomous
Concubine
