                             Notes from the arena champ.

Sir Da -- Many thanks, and thanks for showing up and thanks for staying down.  And
now, for me, a quiet contemplative walk on the North Shore...really take time to
reflect and appreciate the situation.

And, how exciting is this?  I've ascended before little big mouth, and Mr. Suave
can't be too cool about it...knocking himself out showing it's no big deal.  He's
sooooo sophisticated. (I love it)  You know it's funny, with all the more...
disagreeable fighters who've moved on, it makes one consider the "virtues" of living
a different life.  Not me, of course, I'm pure as the driven snow... (Drifted?!?  I
heard that) -- Melody, Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to FEAR LESS.  SPRINGBORN had 
cause to celebrate, after PUSHY PAM got 12 points by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  
ACTAON certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to ALEKTOROPHOBIA 
and losing 7 points in the process!  MELODY successfully staved off a grab for the 
roses by SIR DA of SIR AGLIO.  Does KOLACT have no one talented enough to dethrone 
her?  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk? 
Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     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 SPRINGBORN should take up 
some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of SPRINGBORN found 
their efforts at combat frustrated as FEAR LESS apparently had more important things 
to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and ACTAON is it right 
now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE MOONDOGS proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in KOLACT 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.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for KOLACT?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Sir Broke Stroker -- Well pop my corn.  Didn't think I'd succumb with such a lack of
fighting spirit.  Looked rusty even...and I like to fight, too. -- Sadie

Qaeda Al -- Screaming Meemies, but you're a big fellow.  D'ja like that double
dipster uppercut with an oblique twist?  ... crowd's roar's are the voice a Karn her-
own-self. (may her rosy hips be bronzed) -- Syd Tubular

Hookfang -- Just trying to fix that crooked tooth. -- Actaon, servant of the public
good (the good, after all, is the same as the beautiful, and that crooked tooth was
not beautiful)

Alektorophobia -- That's a new one on me.  And while I was puzzling over it, you
whooped me on the head. -- Estrella
P.S.  Well, not actually on the head, but I'm being polite.
P.P.S.  But you were NOT being polite.

Quip -- I thought you dwarves were supposed to be laconic, even taciturn.  I did NOT
appreciate you making all those snappy comments. -- Falling Star

Quasimodo -- I hope someone drops a cathedral on you! -- Cynica

Quo Vadis -- (dubious look)  If you say so. -- Moonday

Lord Protector Sir Realistic -- Nonsense!  I not only don't have it, I wouldn't be
caught dead with it! -- Arenamaster Filiaril
