                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You're slipping, Thomas!  Even with the style advantage, I shouldn't have won
that.  At least, not so easily.  Still, I won't complain.  This is an amazing
situation, and I intend to savor it.

                                   Kuressa d'Gen

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon VEASTIAN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  CROC FILES 2 had cause to celebrate, after COOKIE 
got 14 points by beating SOLDIER 1.  KURESSA D'GEN successfully staved off a grab for 
the roses by SOLDIER 4 of MEDAL OF HONOR 27.  Does VEASTIAN have no one talented 
enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team in VEASTIAN is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are VEASTIAN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Everyone is famous 
for fifteen minutes, and SJORDHAL is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't 
THE FAMILY proud!  Willing to win at any cost is SOLDIER 3, who challenged J'KOROU, 
14 points junior.  Our sympathies, J'KOROU!  I thought SOLDIER 3 showed great skill 
and promise when he beat J'KOROU.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
I hear SOLDIER 1 of MEDAL OF HONOR 27 tired of the battles and was thinking of 
becoming a priest.  COOKIE of CROC FILES 2 saved him the effort of getting 
references.  Charity is unknown in VEASTIAN, and rightly so.  THE FAMILY exacted 
their revenge against MEDAL OF HONOR 27.  Questions are being raised about the 
disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in VEASTIAN would I 
avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid VEASTIAN farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

09/04/2006.  We remember. -- Croc Files 2

Soldier 2 -- Ah, you're number two, so you try harder?  Go exercise, or exorcise,
your feeling of inferiority on someone else who'll give you a better run for it. --
Sjordhal

Soldier 3 -- Drat.  It's so annoying to meet up with someone who's taller than I am,
AND a better fighter.  Chastening, too. -- J'Korou

Soldier 1 -- Yeah, yeah, I figured it'd be you or number four.  I must've done
something really wrong in a former life to deserve this. -- Noriltenne

And, as our only fight NOT against one of those Medal of Honor guys, I get to beat up
a Convicted Thief.  Works for me. -- Jantru
