                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am on top.  I like being on top.  I deserve to be on top.  It is my favorite
position.
     Are you listening, Moon Child?
     Are YOU listening, Fergus? (wink)
                         Bombette

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of KALTOS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
ORVERD QUILL, who pummelled MOON CHILD, to pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, ORVERD QUILL was winsome, after beating MOON CHILD and seeing her 
lose 14 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, KALTOS' Duelmaster BOMBETTE found 
herself the woman of the hour, being "invited to dance" 2 times!  Well, Duelmaster 
BOMBETTE challenged THE MIDDLE WAY 5's JERI LOUGH.  Is a 26-8-0 good enough?  Those 
who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by JERI LOUGH, of THE MIDDLE WAY 5, 
who despite a 13-28-0 couldn't overcome KALTOS' Number 1.  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?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5 are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of THE MIDDLE WAY 5 found their efforts at combat frustrated as TEAM CHAOS 
ELITE apparently had more important things to do than fight.  IRON MAIDEN challenged 
ELINDE GOSS!  Who says TEAM CHAOS ELITE are just a bunch of wimps!  IRON MAIDEN of 
TEAM CHAOS ELITE kept hers wits as she was subdued by ELINDE GOSS.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  KALTOS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Victory Tavern.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Bombette -- Thirteen minutes!!  Ughhh.  Felt like a lifetime out there.  I think it
will take a lifetime to get over the soreness I have all over my body.  Ouch!!  It
hurts to just sit down...oh...oh!  But it aches even more to stand up.  What did you
do to me?? -- Moon Child

Moon Child -- Thanks for the walk in the park.  I enjoyed the green cheese. --
Bombette

Alice In Chains -- Hey!  I, too, was distracted!  No fair! -- Tiny Toes

Embezzling Scribe -- I am sorry I killed you and pleased that you will return anyway.
S O R R Y! -- Slinky

Jeri -- Flower arrangement can be stressful, but I like the birds and the bees
because that is my kind of fun. -- Bombette

Venzo da'Kraliano, Mercenary and Sword for Hire -- Ah, yes, I remember you.  And you
do make a change from fighting Bombette.  For one thing, I won the fight! -- Jeri
Lough
P.S.  I'm sure you don't hurt THAT much.  What's a couple of stabs in the kidneys to
an old mercenary?

Devrie Scatha, Concubine Out of Favor -- Why don't you do something to get back INTO
favor?  Surely you don't LIKE being a gladiator? -- Elinde Goss

Wilbothe of Andor, Respectable Assassin -- I don't see that "respectable" part.  It
seems like a lousy job to me, and no mistake. -- Orverd Quill

Devrie Scatha, Concubine Out of Favor -- Cheese, lady, sorry about trying to bury you
in the sand.  I don't know what came over me. -- Gerdig Ibbins

Venzo da'Kraliano, Mercenary and Sword for Hire -- Are you sure you should have come
out on the sands for a second time in the same day?  It seems to be action above and
beyond the call of your duty, surely.  Wrap up warmly, this damp chill will make your
scars ache, and don't pay any attention to Jeri, she's, well, I suppose you could
call her a "rough diamond." -- Helene Juste

Odd that we fought nothing but standbys this time, though there were other active
gladiators.  Pleasant to go five and oh, of course. -- Jorja, the Middle Way
P.S.  Hmm, eight out of ten fights were with standbys!

Luigi -- Are you sure "wine"?  Maybe mulled cider at this time of year. -- Jorja

All -- We thought of writing personals to you all, and then we thought of going to
the Merman's Head and having hot apple pie, and the vote for the second option was
unanimous. -- Venzo da'Kraliano, Mercenary and Sword for Hire, speaking for all the
standbys
