                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Frankly, that was a surprise, but a pleasant one.  And Romo should be happy,
too, an undefeated record can be a terrible burden.  Of course, I have a creeping
suspicion that Romo is going to come right back and take the title away from me
again, but for now... I like it!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of SOLVEN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for LULU 
ORLENE, who pummelled PURPLE HAZE, to pocket 19 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, LULU ORLENE was winsome, after beating PURPLE HAZE and seeing him 
lose 16 points.  In SOLVEN, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find 
ourselves a new Duelmaster, ROMO.  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, LULU ORLENE is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Justice was served as ROMO fought MEDAN QUIZZAR in bloodfeud.  Well done, 
SERPENTS HOLD!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after 
you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in SOLVEN is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for SOLVEN?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Jorja -- I apologize for the death of your warrior.  I must admit that I was
skeptical that Kharadmon said he was aiming LL and killed my warrior because every

one of his blows was to the head or body, but I was aiming RL against your warrior
and the same happened.  I won't be able to stay around for the blood feud.  Money is
short and the tournament is coming up. -- Padre

Llyme -- Well, YOU may improve, and I hope you will, but I'm not going to.  At least,
not as a gladiator. -- Ghost of Hillili Nakal

I don't like dwarves.  They're too SMALL.  It's like hitting children. -- Holm
Joubert

I LOST to the Honest Merchant?  Makes you wonder about his honesty, doesn't it?  I
mean, *I* am the gladiator, he's just a shopkeeper, so how could he win HONESTLY? --
Farlin Meeks

Love or Confusion -- I'm not going to put up with THAT. -- Lulu Orlene

"HILLILI NAKAL was slain by A KLUTZ in a 2 minute beginner's melee."  I noticed. --
