                             Notes from the arena champ.

All -- Annnnd that's a wrap!  Many thanks to the Kolact Ladies' Auxiliary for this
bon-voyage buffet.  I like the short spear shaped scones particularly.  *ahem*  It's
been inspirational being your Duelmistress.  Defending the throne, receiving my due,
but I must be off to the Isle for to defend more than just Kolact but the whole of
Alastari with my unique abilities.  That old corruptor old funky-hunky Waldo has
probably regressed the preparedness and skill levels of said defenders through his
corrupting life-style and larcenous ways, so it will be up to me to bring the true
professionalism side of the parry striker style back home to my new home. -- Wanda,
Duelmistress, Lady Protector

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in KOLACT, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--THE MOONDOGS.  THE MOONDOGS had cause 
to celebrate, after PERSEA QUELL got 20 points by beating VETERAN MERCENARY.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, LIRVEL MOORN was winsome, after beating QUIZNOS 
and seeing him lose 10 points.  Well, Duelmaster WANDA Dark Arena Challenged DARK 
ARENA's BLACK ORC.  Is a 20-12-1 good enough?  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
BLACK ORC killed the Duelmaster, WANDA, leaving SPRINGBORN in mourning.  The audience 
got their money's worth, as they witnessed SIR CUMFERENCE attain the throne at the 
cost of WANDA's life!  Word has it one team in KOLACT is taking speech lessons to try 
to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in KOLACT is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  KOLACT, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
Don Corleone's.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- Wanda, PS 12(+1)-6-9-17-11-13-17 SS MD/VL.  Hmmm...can't recall the last time
I had a fighter rate in all six categories.  Didn't master in any of them, jack-of-
all-trades and all that.  But did see riposting as a leg up. -- Still, the Distiller

Lirvel Moorn -- Did you notice that "back-attcha" learn?  Few more of those
and...there's a scary thought. -- Dawn

Icarus -- Brought me down to earth.  Those stratospheric rises have their price.
Such azzz...all of a sudden I'd apparently outpaced my base. -- Buffalo Bob

Cynica -- This is not a good thing.

Nestor Ordh -- Misdirection is a magicians (and a warriors) friend.  Flattered though
I was. -- Dawn

Qwap, Again -- Even though I don't run here, every two weeks I look at the fight
results for this arena and wonder:  Is this the turn that Qwap, Again" is going to
fight for the 2nd time?"  For 36 turns I have been dissappointed.  Kolact has not
seen an innovative fighter such as yourself since Turn 235.  It's time for an encore!
-- Manager (A secret fan)

Sir Cumference -- Do you ever wish for other opponents, or is the lack of surprise to
be found in "old familiar faces" your favorite flavor? -- Cynica

Dawn -- Way too early for me to get up.  How about if we both sleep in today? --
Lirvel Moorn

Captured Orc?  But I don't want an orc.  Although... he is a fine figure of a man.
And it's okay that he doesn't like hospitals, neither do I!  Something in common
right there.  Hmm. -- Persea Quell

Oh, heck, the Userous Merchant.  But the check is in the mail! -- Nestor Rodh
P.S.  Really!

Buffalo Bob...won't you come out tonight, come out tonight, come out tonight...but
with that blow to the knee, you won't be dancing. -- Icarus
P.S.  And you wouldn't be dancing with me anyway.  I don't do that unisex stuff.

Dawn -- (earnestly)  Count on me any time, ma'am. -- Nestor Ordh

Our congratulations to Wanda the Wonderful. -- the Moondogs
