                             Notes from the arena champ.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon XOCHITHLAN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Those betting on FIVE FELINES lost their 
shirt, as FIVE FELINES lost their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  The arena was more 
crowded than usual this time, as LAHRS ENNY faced XOCHITHLAN's Duelmaster.  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by LAHRS ENNY, of CRIMINAL ELEMENT, who 
despite a 15-11-0 couldn't overcome XOCHITHLAN's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
XOCHITHLAN 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 XOCHITHLAN avoid FIVE FELINES.  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, ATMAN PROJECT scurried away from FIVE FELINES.  Oh, the shame!  If 
challenges were horses, MYRON NAGEL could open up a fast food joint!  Them's the 
breaks, GIB HOLGIN.  Expecting fair challenges from CHEAP SHOTS is evidently too much 
to ask.  Warriors of XOCHITHLAN!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base 
challenge of EYE RAISE?  SKULK challenged MYSTI MIENER!  Who says CHEAP SHOTS are 
just a bunch of wimps!  SKULK of CHEAP SHOTS kept its wits as it won victory over 
MYSTI MIENER.   
     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 XOCHITHLAN would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  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

All -- I'm back.  Well I never left but I did get quiet.  Well I'm going to try to get 
more active in tHE personal ads again. -- Fizban

Cheap Shots -- Nice start in our fine city.  Keep up the good work and give me my top 
team slot back. -- Fizban

Zoolander -- Well you got away with killing Berg Lori.  I couldn't get Lahrs into the 
Challenger Champs quick enough.  He probably could beat Zoo anyway but maybe we'll see 
very soon. -- Fizban

Myron -- My old teammates told me you were a good teacher.  They didn't lie.  Thank 
you. -- Lahrs Enny

Ulrik Vorn -- The skills were expected the win was a pleasant surprise.  Thank you. -- 
Homey Cide

Yolana -- Wow my first win ever and the manner in which I won.  Hard to believe I'm 
named after a violent crime. -- A. Salt

Panther -- That's what you get for mingling with rabble like me. -- Street Scum

Gib -- Yes it was, wasn't it?  And I consider myself the epitome of cheap shottedness.  
Thank you for the compliment and all the wins, Bud. -- Eye Raise (along with an acute 
smirk)

Silvertooth -- You are a difficult one to ignore, and I wish I had.  I seldom 
compliment anyone, but that was very well done, you cad! -- Ignore of Cheap Shots

Cunning Cougar -- I like your name -- at least the first part.  I also liked the win.  
Hah, hah. -- Chuckle of Cheap Shots

All -- May the Arizona Face have presented you with significant reasons for remorse 
and despair. -- All us Cheap Shots

Lahrs Enny -- You're grateful for the crowd's acclaim?  What are you, some kind of 
insecure wimp?  The crowd doesn't know from beans, or maybe even peas.  You've got to 
please YOURSELF, nobody else.  Well, except me, of course. -- Myron Nagel

Homey Cide -- You are disgusting little pipsqueak.  An insolent upstart!  You will 
regret your intemperate behavior. -- Ulrik Vorn, not an elf to be trifled with

Eye Raise -- I was GOING to slit your throat while you were looking at the sky for 
inspiration or whatever, but the damned arenamaster STOPPED me.  I hate that. -- Gib 
Holguin

A. Salt -- I suppose I should throw you over my left shoulder to avert bad luck, but 
(grunt) I can't seem to do it. -- Yolana X

Spoken Secret -- Oh, cheese, that is SOOO too much!  An oh-fer turn, and they're going 
to blame ME, and then Crysalis will fight, and they're going to blame us for THAT, 
too.  Gods. -- Quia Rayne
