                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hmm, I have to admit that Ghost was right about the Venomous Concubine.  She is
a nasty piece of work.

                                       Bobcat

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  SERPENTS' HOLD had cause to celebrate, after BOWEN got 20 points by 
beating M. CHARDINEE.  HONEYSUCKLE certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, 
after losing to SKITTLES and losing 6 points in the process!  In MALCORN, nothing is 
permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, DEANO.  So who was 
the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's 
got a basic problem...   
     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 for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for MALCORN?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Well, darn, just make me feel rotten, Bobcat!  I was maybe a little harsh about the
Concubine last time, because she's bound to have some good points.  They just don't
SHOW, you know?  But the Khalhums Dwarf!  Ah, there's a real prince among dwarves, so
tall, so handsome! -- Silver Ghost

Bowen -- So, are you a serpent, or someone who goes around holding serpents?
Inquiring minds are mildly curious. -- Honeysuckle
P.S.  Even a golem could have some personality, right?

Skittles -- Remind me not to eat strange food handed to me by stranger women. --
Sourwood

Lite Brite -- But you're RIDICULOUS! -- Sundog
