                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The fans love us, and that worries me.  Next thing you know, we'll be top team
again, and that means a spotlight.  No telling what hare-brained ideas my teammates
might come up with for that!  I don't see why we can't just WORK, at JOBS, earn some
money, and buy or make a door.  Surely it doesn't have to be an adventure.
     Although I will say that getting up before sunrise with the wind and the snow
whistling past that curtain in the doorway, that IS an adventure.  Bleh.  Not even
Thumbscrews could get me to "embrace the experience."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DULLENS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at CARDOW 
HUNTERS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by HARRY 
POTTER AND THE.  Good show!  HARRY POTTER AND THE had cause to celebrate, after 
POLYJUICE TWINS got 32 points by beating RAINBIRD.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, POLYJUICE TWINS was winsome, after beating RAINBIRD and seeing her lose 25 
points.  What can be a greater victory?  THUMBSCREWS has taken his place as the top, 
as DULLENS' new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in DULLENS is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in DULLENS is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid 
DULLENS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Hmm.  I defeated the Ghost of Eldrad.  Perhaps I should try for a job getting rid of
ghosts?  But it seems wrong, somehow.  I know there are malevolent ghosts, but most
are just, well, hanging out.  Looking for company, or justice, or even just a good
time.  Why bother 'em? -- Rainbird

Koo Koo Kung Fu was so embarrassed to hear his name shouted out by the steward that
he didn't even NOTICE when I approached and whacked him.  Works for me. -- Biting Fly

Polyjuice Twins -- Well, maybe--it depends on the bathtub, of course. -- Blackhorn

Balance of Earth -- What does that MEAN, though?  That if we jostle your elbow,
you'll drop a landslide on us? -- Anvil
