                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Bad turn for my teammate Melanji, good one for me.  Thanks, Alvernon.

                                    Kirvinj

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for BLACK ZANJO, who pummelled 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR, to pocket 16 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
CONVICTED ASSASSIN was winsome, after beating BAIBAR and seeing him lose 4 points.  A 
BAD LIE found out that VEASTIAN isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in VEASTIAN is using psychics to predict wins. 
They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     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 VEASTIAN would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in VEASTIAN is the highlight of my life.  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 VEASTIAN 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
