                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Again, Violet Orc has been the generous agent or stepping-stone by which I
arrived (or remained) here.  Let me buy you another drink, Violet, by way of thanks
and farewell on your way to the Isle.

                                   Stelra Tirins

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ALJAFIR, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but FIELDS OF ELYSIUM will tell you 61-52-3 is nothing to laugh at...  
FIELDS OF ELYSIUM had cause to celebrate, after NOVELLUS got 10 points by beating 
CAPTURED ORC.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, THE RED BARON was winsome, 
after beating TAMARIN MELLIRN and seeing her lose 8 points.  Now I can't insult 
QUINTUS, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop 
me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in ALJAFIR is taking speech lessons 
to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ALJAFIR's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of DEATH INCARNATE should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, FIELDS OF ELYSIUM scurried away 
from DEATH INCARNATE.  Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, TAMARIN MELLIRN 
could open up a fast food joint!  Them's the breaks, GRISHORT HURM.  Expecting fair 
challenges from FIELDS OF ELYSIUM is evidently too much to ask.  COMMODUS subdued 
GRISHORT HURM.  The whole thing leaves a bitter memory.   
     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!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  ALJAFIR, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Vile Vizier.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir
