                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow!  Look at me!  Sitting on top of Cliffhome at a mere 9 fights.  Assur is a
master manager and I must give him the credit, since all I've done is follow his
instructions.  Any prospective basher, you want Assur to manage you, absolutely.  It
is a joy and privilege.  I can't believe I was able to beat Nilismarin Salm and
Korgendal Fars.  They both have nearly 5 times my experience.  Maybe they're pulling
my leg and letting me win, though.  That would be pretty funny, to deceive a warrior
like that.  Make them think they're much better than they are.  Well I'm not going to
fall for your tricks!
     I'm just going to listen to my manager and do what he says and whatever happens,
happens.  I'm not listening to you!  LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA (with hands over ears).
     I hope Assur is right and I'm just better than those ABs.  He says everyone
thinks ABs are the best, but that bashers can beat ABs easily.  Maybe that means I
could one day win the Primus tourney.  That would be a lot of fun, going to Primus
and beating up all those mean ABs who think they're on top of the world and me, a
basher, comes along and puts them in their place.  Yes, that would be funny.  I
wonder why Assur hasn't told me of his plans to put me on top of Primus.  He must be
keeping it a secret so nobody else knows his plans.  That is how smart he is!  He is
going to make those Abs never forget what bashers are all about!  And to think that
maybe I'll be a part of it!  WOW!  Watch out everyone, here I come...  But I can't
tell anyone, because Assur wants to keep it a secret, yeah.
     Hopefully I get to fight one of Jinda-Ban's ABs again.  That Voronsal guy looks
a lot tougher and his style is not one that Bashers get to prey on.  Yeah, I'd rather
fight one of the ABs that I've beaten before.  And stay on the throne again (and
again, and again, and again).  Maybe I'll be on the throne for 11 more turns!
Wouldn't that be a lot of fun!  I guess I should close here, since the commission
says columns can't be too long.

Talks Nonstop

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon CLIFFHOME, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at SOUL WARRIORS left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by BASH BROS CHILDREN.  Good show!  SOUL 
WARRIORS had cause to celebrate, after ASH got 18 points by beating TACOS.  ENOCH 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to SICK DAYS and losing 
14 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
VORONSAL MAUR, of JINDA-BAN, who despite a 12-5-0 couldn't overcome CLIFFHOME's 
Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering 
milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in CLIFFHOME avoid SHEWISH CANDY.  The warriors of 
SHEWISH CANDY found their efforts at combat frustrated as BASH BROS CHILDREN 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, 
ENOCH could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in CLIFFHOME would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid CLIFFHOME farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
