                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This time, I face Kerby Ironfoot, the Khalhums Dwarf.  He tells me he's planning
to retire soon but will send a cousin to take up the position.  Some guys have all
the luck.  I'd send my cousin to take this position, but retirement doesn't appear to
be a workable option.

                                     Blhu Murther

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZUKAL, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SEA DOGS had cause to celebrate, after COAL BACKER 
got 21 points by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  SAFFIRA certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to ROVING DEMON and losing 22 points in the 
process!  BLHU MURTHER successfully staved off a grab for the roses by SEA LEGS of 
SEA DOGS.  Does ZUKAL have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Admittedly Death waits for no one, but me thinks TIGHT SKIRT of HOT STUFF 
(3-0-1) is being sent off a little prematurely.  The manager at HOT STUFF must have 
some new strategy for sending SPIKED HEELS, a warrior with 2-0-1, to the Dark Arena.  
Watch this space!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZUKAL?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
