                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The naughty cat is taken down.  Assur debated having me try to put it down, but
that is not his style and so the goal was only to win.  To be honest, the kitty
didn't look very good and I'm now not very surprised that the commission refuses to
let him go to the Isle of the Eye.
     That says not much for the competition here in Talcama and perhaps the Kitty did
us all a favor by ridding the arena of a bunch of losers.
     As for me, it is more than likely I'll be heading back to inactivity next turn,
so I only get a short stay on the throne.  But I'm sure going to enjoy it.

-- Crushing Bratz

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TALCAMA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing works for 
a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as RYAN'S HENCHMEN can 
attest...  Practice pays for STROMTIUM 90, who pummelled PICK HARD, to pocket 20 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 13 points to STROMTIUM 90.  (Discrete enough, PICK HARD?) CRUSHING BRATZ 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by KILL KITTEN of ARDUIN GRIMOIRE.  Does 
TALCAMA have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in TALCAMA 
is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
ARDUIN GRIMOIRE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of ARDUIN GRIMOIRE found their efforts at combat frustrated as SHEPHERDS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, 
LIPSTICK could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and 
an overtaxed simile, I now bid TALCAMA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
