                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Thanks for another one, Chester.  Now if I can hold on once more, I should
receive my invite.  Looks like I'll be matching up with Beef this round.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  STILLMATIC posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd. 
Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for ONE MIC, who pummelled GORAN KOBLINZ, 
to pocket 17 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, VENOM was winsome, 
after beating JONZ KLEE and seeing him lose 5 points.  Now I can't insult BEEF, as it 
has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it 
on too thick) Word has it one team in JHANS is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in JHANS avoid WRATHMEN.  The warriors of WRATHMEN found their 
efforts at combat frustrated as ERRATA apparently had more important things to do 
than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  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 JHANS?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Aloysius the Bear -- Impressive inscription. -- Khysten

Venom -- Well... chit. -- Joe Kidd

Khylar and Kharadmon -- Ah, Doomcorps.  All gone.  One with the snows of yesteryear
or something like that.  We haven't seen a whisker of those dudes in years, and we
miss 'em.  Although on a positive note, I see that many other people who have been
inactive for years are returning, so maybe all hope should not be abandoned. --
Jorja, and Chester, not that Chester knows, they were before his time

Khrysten -- Was I supposed to be swinging AT something?  Nobody mentioned that. --
Orval Payne

Khylar -- And, because the options are few at the moment, here I am again. -- Chester
Grell

Looks like we did a number on the Osksi Noble. -- Hildreth Lamont and Jonz Klee

The Flyest -- Eh?  I know I'm not a mental giant, but shouldn't have some vague idea
what your name refers to?  And I don't. -- Goran Koblinz

One Mic -- You just did that to embarrass me, didn't you? -- Orval Payne
