                             Notes from the arena champ.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon VEASTIAN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking 
of laughing at jokes, observe MELODY MAYHEM.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 6!  
Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as 
DOLI CAPAX can attest...  Practice pays for BACKBEREND, who pummelled CONVICTED 
THIEF, to pocket 8 points.  CONFUSED CLARK certainly had a baffled expression on his 
face, after losing to STILL LOOKING and losing 2 points in the process!  A certain 
someone saw SHOULD BE FUN at The Warty Toad with the shakes, and now he fails to show 
up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  Now I can't insult STILL LOOKING, as 
she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay 
it on too thick) So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  VEASTIAN, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny 
Vir
