                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't know what a Volksie is, that was before my time.  And I'm not so easily
lured into obsessing over a weird question that I'll forget to fight.  I guess What's
gets points for showing up, but I never expected to one-shot him.  It.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of CLIFFHOME.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at HOLMES 
ON THE RANGE left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by 
ZOMBIE SQUAD.  Good show!  JINDA-BAN posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody 
loves a winner...  Practice pays for WRATH, who pummelled UNCUT HARE, to pocket 23 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 22 points to WRATH.  (Discrete enough, UNCUT HARE?) Like a flirtacious 
debutante, CLIFFHOME's Duelmaster VONSITAN KORV found himself the man of the hour, 
being "invited to dance" 2 times!  VONSITAN KORV successfully staved off a grab for 
the roses by THE COWS AFOOT of HOLMES ON THE RANGE.  Does CLIFFHOME have no one 
talented enough to dethrone him?  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!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of TEAM FLOYD, alone and unchallenged.  Like a 
pup with its tail between its legs, BARBARIA scurried away from TEAM FLOYD.  Oh, the 
shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
