                             Notes from the arena champ.

"I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow death and
madness..."

Ahem....
You have allowed this to happen again.
The Wait is now your 6 time Duelmaster.
What is Kati Tei coming to?
Reaper keeps muttering something about "gods have mercy" and "seemed like a good idea
at the time...."
Will I ever graduate, I guess we continue to...Wait?

See you on the sands...

Your Duelmaster
The Wait

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  THE PLAGUE?  Who?  DA DOG POWNDAZ is the top 
team these days, buddies!  WANDERERS had cause to celebrate, after GRIMM LURCHER got 
22 points by beating DEVIL DOG.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, GRIMM 
LURCHER was winsome, after beating DEVIL DOG and seeing him lose 14 points.  
Duelmaster THE WAIT from THE PLAGUE is going for the gold, as he challenged 
WANDERERS' BALIN CHANE.  Ooh, the excitement!  THE WAIT successfully staved off a 
grab for the roses by BALIN CHANE of WANDERERS.  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.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE STORM FRONT, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, THE PLAGUE scurried away from THE STORM 
FRONT.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good 
oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BALIN CHANE is the most challenged warrior.  MARLIN 
REEVE found himself challenged by a warrior 20 below:  N'KAI.  N'KAI of THE PLAGUE 
kept his wits as he was beat by MARLIN REEVE.   
     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.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  KATI-TEI, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Swinging Aardvark.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
