                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So M. Chardinee would be duelmaster?  Actually, I don't see why he should NOT be
duelmaster, he's certainly reliable and competent.  But I bet he wouldn't enjoy it as
much as I do.

                                    Hotl Muschel

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  MIDDLE WAY 15?  Who?  KELLUMBO'S KIDS is the 
top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for ELDON KREE, who pummelled CIVILIZED 
CRIMINAL, to pocket 20 points.  Now I can't insult HATE MY LIFE, as it has gloriously 
dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So 
who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  KORGE, SHEWISH GIANT in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for MAULER of KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS.  Maybe that certain serving girl(?) at The Victory Tavern will be!  Questions 
are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in SOLVEN would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

I really don't see the POINT in this whole "kung-fu" thing.  Are we to believe that
when we're finally thrust into the Gates, we'll be fighting unarmed kungfutists? --

I don't see why anyone expects me to be polite to the Khalhums Dwarf.  He wasn't
polite to me. -- Chawlie Istta

White Collar Crime!  I don't see why it's supposed to be less bad than blue collar
crime. -- Jilian Norman
