                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings,

Anti said I should say something since I've held the throne two turns in a row.

Eh, can't say I feel motivated.  Maybe if I win again.

Whitey C, since you teach well I'll probably challenge you again... the fights have
been pretty close so you might beat me.  Not that I care all that much.

Later,

Archippus

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for PROJECT XY, who pummelled MODEL RAILROADER, to pocket 
11 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, VENOMOUS CONCUBINE was winsome, 
after beating NICANOR and seeing him lose 8 points.  ARCHIPPUS successfully staved 
off a grab for the roses by TRASH COLLECTOR of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Does ZUWAYZA 
have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in ZUWAYZA is 
taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ZUWAYZA's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZUWAYZA is the highlight of my life.  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 ZUWAYZA 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Bob Begger -- I see you as opposed by your very nature to my chosen task in life.  I
can't tolerate that. -- Trash Collector
P.S.  And apparently the handicapper can't either, or why the uneven matchup?  There
are standbys near your rank, after all.

Tanya Tunneller -- Odd, you aren't a dwarf, and who else would elect to live and work
underground?  It's dark and cold.  But I do approve of women having careers, that's
very Modern of you. -- Modern Scene
P.S.  Just, you shouldn't aspire to be a successful gladiator.

Pendulous Patty -- Aren't you a bit LARGE for a bat?  Quite out of scale. -- Model

I could see that what the Mordant Deserter needed was some honest outdoor labor.  And
