                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sorry about that, Danette.  Well, sort of sorry.  But I wanted the title again.

                                    Eddie Incher

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at BABES left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by MIDDLE WAY 17.  Good show!  MIDDLE WAY 17 
had cause to celebrate, after FARLO JOST got 14 points by beating HELEN.  HELEN 
certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to FARLO JOST and 
losing 12 points in the process!  Out with the old, in with the new.  Enter RIRORNI 
ADVENTURER, handily defeating EDDIE INCHER.  With 106 points, GORM HOLLIS of MIDDLE 
WAY 17 takes the position of JHANS' Duelmaster.  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!  Admittedly Death waits for no one, but me thinks MEG of BABES (3-1-1) is being 
sent off a little prematurely.  Questions are being raised about the disposing of 
severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in JHANS would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHANS is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  JHANS, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at Lucas Lounge.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir
