                             Notes from the arena champ.

Another up, another beaten down.  Glacier, no dice amigo!  Who is next on the list?
Hmmm?  Who is next to feel the greatness?  Let's see who is available here...Aunty
and Yuffie are off to the isle!  I just beat Glacier.  So that leaves Jacob.  Hrmm, a
good looking young lad.  Let's see if you can handle the heat. -- Your unbridled
master of disaster and DM -- Boli

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon STORMCROWE, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  
Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe PACIS EX NEX.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to 
drop by 5!  What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause 
for celebration, according to SRETSAMLEUD II.  Practice pays for HALF, who pummelled 
PROWLER, to pocket 29 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, VADIS was 
winsome, after beating DICE and seeing it lose 14 points.  GLACIER found out that 
STORMCROWE isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  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?  Perhaps the warriors of DARQUE FORCES should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of DARQUE FORCES 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as NOSTALGIA apparently had more important 
things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and JACOB MARLEY is 
it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't PHANTOM REGIMENT proud!  DESTRO 
challenged JACOB MARLEY!  Who says NOSTALGIA are just a bunch of wimps!  DESTRO of 
NOSTALGIA kept his wits as he lost to JACOB MARLEY.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Citizens of STORMCROWE, be sure to settle your debts with VOLTRON of 
NOSTALGIA.  He's relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  The 
manager at NOSTALGIA must have some new strategy for sending VOLTRON, a warrior with 
8-4-0, to the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  Admittedly Death waits for no one, but 
me thinks STORMHEART of KELLUMBO'S KIDS (5-2-0) is being sent off a little 
prematurely.  Q:  What's a record like 6-5-0 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark 
Arena!  This week's winner:  NOT AGAIN of NOSTALGIA!  Oh hard!  that to strike a 
flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  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 STORMCROWE farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
