                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Me-Ouch and Ultorino, come and get me you crumbs!
                 Brujah, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Those betting on ARENA FELINES lost their shirt, as ARENA FELINES lost 
their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  I doubt many are quaking in their boots, but 
BEARING ALL comes out of nowhere to get 4-1-0.  What does the future hold?  Watch 
this space...  BEARING ALL had cause to celebrate, after TIM KEN got 15 points by 
beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 15250 was 
winsome, after beating BLEU BONET and seeing her lose 8 points.  Can you believe it?  
BRUJAH apparently has better things to do as ZUKAL's Duelmaster than show up and 
fight!  What can be a greater victory?  ULTORINO has taken his place as the top, as 
ZUKAL's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in ZUKAL 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 FANGS, alone and unchallenged.  The warriors 
of FANGS found their efforts at combat frustrated as DARK WARDS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, GANGREL is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Questions are being 
raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in 
ZUKAL would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUKAL farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Ultorino -- You call that a fight? -- Brujah

Blu Jon -- We just keep having fun and more fun don't we? -- Ventriie

Madness -- I think the RUGs were very, very unfair to you, but in this new world of
tournament FE, maybe not.  It sure looked like it! -- Toreador (dancing in the
streets)

Bleu Bonnet -- Well, how quaint! -- Gangrel

Brujah -- That is, and I will be frank, a great relief.  I did not want to be
Duel2dude again if it could be avoided.  The burden of high position, you know. --
Ultorino
P.S.  Congratulations on having a tv challenge to use.  But I hope your undefeated
record turns around and bites you on the rear.

Ventriie -- (heavy sigh)  Not my kind of fight, as, of course, you knew before you
challenged me.  Darn!  What a pleasure it might be to have a manager who paid
attention to these things!  Then again, she might want to, ah, forcibly retire some
of us as "unlikely to make good."  Maybe I should stick with what I've got and like
it. -- Blu Jon

Silver Bullet -- Heck.  When you hit me on the elbow, I can't hoist a drink, and that
IS barbaric of you. -- Bluette
P.S.  Okay, so I don't drink much.  But I might want to start, you know.  It's
possible, isn't it?

Gangrel -- Well...I was afraid you might be contagious?  I was distracted by the
woman in the third row of the stands who was wearing the most RAVISHING hat?
Something like that. -- Bleu Bonet

Convicted Thief?  Well...a win is always--  He DIED?  That WIMP!  That CAD!  How DARE
he die on me like that?  I'll sue! -- Blubelle

Toreador -- Those foreign dances always confuse me. -- Bluette

Ventriie -- For you, maybe. -- Blu Jon

Padrian of the Beggars' Guild -- I didn't intend to, but he dodged right into it. --
Bleu Bonet

Geroge Zoar, Free Orc -- I might. -- Bluette

Blubelle -- That was cruelty below and beyond the acceptable.  Say goodbye to your
possessions. -- Taralbos, Senior Thief, We Get Even

Incisor -- I hope the Venomous Concubine bites you. -- Taranj, Fratsfa Slave
