                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Huh, a Kung-Fu Master.  I hate those guys.  They're stuck up, go around
preaching how they're better than the rest of us because they don't use weapons.  I
enjoyed devastating this one.

                                    Lum Busby

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  ZOMBIE SQUAD had cause to celebrate, after KAZI got 20 points by 
beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  KEVSILESSA KIRO certainly had a baffled expression on 
hers face, after losing to ZANDER and losing 14 points in the process!  LUM BUSBY 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by FAITH of ZOMBIE SQUAD.  Does 
CLIFFHOME have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in 
CLIFFHOME is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in CLIFFHOME 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.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
