                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I have so little I want to say that I will say so little.  I am here.  I am
champion.  BRING ON THE SLOP!

          Purple Pig, DMIII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in ARUAK CITY, with 
changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--COLORIFIC. 
CANNIBALZ had cause to celebrate, after DORA got 21 points by beating BULL MOOSE.  
BULL MOOSE certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to DORA and 
losing 13 points in the process!  PURPLE PIG successfully staved off a grab for the 
roses by KUNG-FU MASTER of ARUAK CITY.  Does ARUAK CITY have no one talented enough 
to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in ARUAK CITY is taking speech lessons to try 
to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of KRILL CAVALRY, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, ANIMAL FARM scurried away from KRILL CAVALRY.  
Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, TIRLA DANCER is the most challenged warrior.  POLARIS 
challenged FORD PREFECT!  Who says SHINING STARS are just a bunch of wimps!  POLARIS 
of SHINING STARS kept his wits as he overcame FORD PREFECT.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  More than one 
waitress at The Bulldog Inn was spilling more drinks than usual last week, as 
COW-ARD's early demise became known.  What will BULLDOGS do???  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.  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 ARUAK CITY farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
