                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Wow, I didn't mean to be unkind to the Virginal Concubine, but I figured I was
out there to win if I could and...I could.  This is cool.

                                    Rambling Ox

P.S.  The big news in gladiating this month is an epidemic of racial transformation.
I'm mentioning it here and now so my teammates will not (I hope) talk about things
else.  I stepped onto the sands a Kannar and left as a Ratani, which is weird.  In
most of our cases, I can see a sort of maybe-logic, I mean Kannar to Ratani, okay,
it's a reach, but they do live in the same part of the world, sort of.  And Valgard
going from Fratsfan to half-elf, that almost makes sense.  You know what Fratsfans
are like.  Forandin, Raltuman to Karnhorn, well, sure.  You only have to look at
Aradi to see where THAT one comes from.  But poor Lorimina went from being an Aruaki,
and quite the pussycat, to...a golem?  I'm not getting this one at all.  And I've
heard of other cases where there were changes between elf and orc, and you KNOW that
has to be some kind of malign magic!  I think Alastari is under attack.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of KATI-TEI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  THE PLAGUE had 
cause to celebrate, after QUOD VOS ERITUS got 14 points by beating POLITE BEGGAR.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 10 
points to KHALHUMS DWARF.  (Discrete enough, VALGARD?) RAMBLING OX successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by NOBLE ASSASSIN of KATI-TEI.  Does KATI-TEI have no 
one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in KATI-TEI is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
WANDERERS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, THE PLAGUE scurried away from WANDERERS.  Oh, the 
shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir
