                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I guess it's Razze's turn:  13-10-7-15-17-11-11, come and get him.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  DELVERS posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a 
winner...  DELVERS had cause to celebrate, after ROCKSNAIL got 28 points by beating 
STUD.  ANVIL certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to VETERAN 
MERCENARY and losing 7 points in the process!  RAZZ successfully staved off a grab 
for the roses by DEEP BLU of WHERE I'VE EATEN.  Does RODEKI 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?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in DEALER'S 
CHOICE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The warriors 
of DEALER'S CHOICE found their efforts at combat frustrated as THE SOVEREIGN 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for 
fifteen minutes, and SILVER LADY is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
DELVERS proud!  BLUE SMOKE challenged SILVER LADY!  Who says THE SOVEREIGN are just a 
bunch of wimps!  BLUE SMOKE of THE SOVEREIGN kept hers wits as she was overcame by 
SILVER LADY.  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched 
fight, PAN and RETRO.  Are DEALER'S CHOICE unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I 
thought PAN showed great skill and promise when she beat RETRO.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in RODEKI is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  RODEKI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Welcome Wench.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Anvil -- So nice to see you again. -- Stud

Zak Pain -- Tonight, we of the Sovereign, drink to you, hear, hear! -- Scorpio

Silver Lady -- I'm only giving you a head start baby.  I know how Dwarves are slower
& all. -- Retro

Joseph George -- Really?!  You want to do it like that?  Alright then, let the games
begin! -- Scorpio

You lost me on your quip about me having a horse, but that doesn't matter now. --
Jade

Ike!! -- Welcome to the Soverign, I expect you to perform well. -- Scorpio

Sit back and watch, Lord Scorpio. -- Ike

Pan -- Hello. -- Delvers

Scorpio -- Why not?  I'm not trying to sound like a jackass either, but why fold one
team and start another in the same arena?  The ONLY place that would matter is in the
career win/loss record, and I don't care all that much about it. -- Harby

Scorpio -- Re Battleaxe Stampede and Dire Lancers, the single active warrior is
probably the best on the team and intended to fight in tourneys.  That warrior will
run in the arena from time to time to get himself into an optimum position for one or
another tourney, then go inactive afterward, come back and fight again, do a tourney,
go inactive... in and out.  If you look around, you can find arenas with only two or
three full-time teams and half a dozen or so popping in and out like that.  Regular
play managers often find this seriously annoying, but it's a fact of arena life. --
Harby

Two-two-one, and I'm going to get into a snit, because Joseph George killed a non-
standby.  An unfair match, of course, if you count simple experience, but that's the
way it goes.  If you don't use your challenges and avoids, the handicappers seem to
ENJOY setting up unfair matches. -- Harby
P.S.  Don't know how the new guy will do when he finally shows up, but that's the way
it goes.  After all, godlings don't apply to work in the mines here or anywhere else.
