                             Notes from the arena champ.

DM at last!  You know I used to have a winning record a long time ago.  Now I just
hope to escape this arena with my head still attached.  Aim Seduce Hammer, you
escaped the curse.  At least for now.  Perhaps we'll fight one more time before I
graduate.  Wendol Varn gets my challenge this turn because I feel the need to beat
him bloody.  Blubber!  Let's have at it.

Forcas
Servant of Kjarran
Balance of Terror

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for COLOSSUS, who pummelled AIM 
SEDUCE HAMMER, to pocket 28 points.  AIM SEDUCE HAMMER certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to COLOSSUS and losing 21 points in the 
process!  Duelmaster FORCAS from BALANCE OF TERROR is going for the gold, as he 
challenged MIDDLE WAY's WENDOL VARN.  Ooh, the excitement!  What can be a greater 
victory?  WENDOL VARN has taken his place as the top, as ALJAFIR's new Duelmaster.  
Word has it one team in ALJAFIR is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of AIM 4 ISLE HAMMERZ 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of 
AIM 4 ISLE HAMMERZ found their efforts at combat frustrated as BALANCE OF TERROR 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and ARTEMIDORUS is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
FIELDS OF ELYSIUM proud!  As a confidence booster, NOVELLUS challenged TREVISA 
DINARA, down 21 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, 
NOVELLUS?  NOVELLUS subdued TREVISA DINARA.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.  
ATTILA THE HUN challenged VINN WULF!  Who says DEATH INCARNATE are just a bunch of 
wimps!  ATTILA THE HUN of DEATH INCARNATE kept his wits as he beat VINN WULF.   
     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!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  ALJAFIR, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Vile Vizier.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Mayhem -- Smart and dangerous!  Stay away from me. -- Maxa Smashu

Aim Reduce Hammer -- Lucky you.  I was looking for your soft spot. -- Hexim Hsidar

Colossus -- Good for you, avenging your teammate's death.  Now don't do it again. --
Nynaeve Haxan

Drogba -- Looks like you are good to go.  I need a little work before I'm
competitive.  Take advantage while you can. -- Trevisa Dinara

Kane -- Ah, I see you forgot to bribe the handicapper.  I think, myself, that he sets
up these totally wretched matches to encourage "more and better bribing."  You have
my sympathies. -- Stelra Tirins
P.S.  But don't expect me to pull a blow.  It's my life on the line out there, too.

Oh, cheese, the Convicted Assassin.  I almost hesitate to defeat this guy, because
he's so good at the "backstabbing in an alley" bit. -- Erbin Frorlin
P.S.  Hmm, maybe HE forgot to bribe the handicapper?

Lots of people seem to have forgotten, such as the Veteran Mercenary. -- Wendol Varn
P.S.  I wouldn't have thought him that stupid.

I hate it when the Venomous Concubine gloats over me. -- Vinn Wulf
P.S.  What if she decides to bite me?  I don't know what kind of venom she's got, but
people bitten by her just fade out of the picture.

Forcas -- Now, now, don't be a sore loser.  You survived and look where you ended up?
It was probably for the best. -- Wendol Varn

Vinn Wulf -- I do enjoy it when a big, tough-looking man kneels before me.  Do it
again and I'll give you a kiss. -- Lenislichi of Venjek, a.k.a. Venomous Concubine

Wendol Varn -- You have no respect for my years and scars. -- Morrus Reltikar,
Experienced Mercenary

Erbin Frorlin -- Watch your step, boy.  We've got our eyes on you. -- Shagrath,
