                             Notes from the arena champ.

      You just HAD to do that, didn't you, Ostrich?  I mean, nobody could expect me
to defeat a Lord Protector, even if he is just a big bird, right?  But people DO
expect the Duel2Dude to get the title on a win.  You could have helped out there.  I
wouldn't have minded.

                                         Chock

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon KATI-TEI, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  BIRDS?  Who?  MEDAL OF HONOR 26 is the top team 
these days, buddies!  MEDAL OF HONOR 26 had cause to celebrate, after WILLIAM 
CRAWFORD got 14 points by beating QUINORE.  ERNEST DERVISHIAN certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to VISITING ORC and losing 10 points in the 
process!  CHOCK successfully staved off a grab for the roses by VETERAN MERCENARY of 
KATI-TEI.  Does KATI-TEI 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...   
     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 KATI-TEI avoid LANGUAGE OF LOVE.  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, BIRDS scurried away from LANGUAGE OF LOVE.  Oh, the shame!  
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and FRITILLARY is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't WANDERERS proud!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in KATI-TEI would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid KATI-TEI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
