                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I have great respect for the members of the Chardinee Society, but, knowing as I
do that they are barred by the details of their contract with the Gladiatorial
Commission from actually holding the title in any arena, I felt it was my duty to
defeat our local member.  Besides, if I'd lost, it might've been Teri who took the
title, and she's a WOMAN.  Shocking thing, to be forced to acknowledge the
superiority of a woman as a warrior!  So I rose to the occasion and did what I
conceived as my duty, and I stand by this.  Challenge me who will!

                                    Kerman Jones

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ZORPUNT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  MEDAL OF HONOR A3 had cause to celebrate, after 
MANUEL PEREZ got 14 points by beating MIRESSEA POOLE.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 8 points to ASH LEELA.  
(Discrete enough, FRANK PEREGORY?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by KUNG-FU MASTER, of ZORPUNT, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome 
ZORPUNT's Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in MEDAL OF 
HONOR A3 are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of MINGALOIDS, so did that sorry team shy from 
MEDAL OF HONOR A3 If challenges were horses, MIRESSEA POOLE could open up a fast food 
joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZORPUNT is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZORPUNT farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Frank Peregory -- Wow, that was quick.  I'm not feeling too good; perhaps we can try
again some other time. -- Baby Karlie

Morlin -- Hey, I was supposed to win that fight! -- Kylemeister

DA1 -- You don't want to mess with this red head! -- Ash Leela

Baby Karlie -- Well, it does happen.  I can live with it.  At least, I hope I can
live with it. -- Morlin Poole
P.S.  Does this mean we can have a real dialogue and push the Notices and Want Ads
off the page?  Wow!

Kylemeister -- Another real fight!  I must have a lucky face or something.  Let me
buy you a drink. -- Morlin Poole

Notice to All:  The Unknown Cult will hold recruitment meetings during the nights of
the Full Moon.  Initial meetings will be held in the arena by special arrangement (no
endorsement is intended or implied in this), with those who desire to pursue
membership being conveyed elsewhere by mysterious means for training and initiation.
Come one and all.  Curiosity is no sin, and those who, after some light instruction,
desire to withdraw their applications may do so, up until the time of the full
initiation (which does not happen immediately, there is a long training period).  All
are welcome.  Come and learn why our cult is nothing for you to fear. -- Sellestro,
Cult Master, the Unknown Cult

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
