                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I guess my little trick worked.  Sorry Anna, but I can't let you monopolize the
DM throne.  Not sure it will work again, but we'll see.

Not much to say, I've got a pile of books I want to read.  See ya next time.

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARDIVENT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but FANDILS will tell you 984-714-35 is nothing to laugh at...  FANDILS had 
cause to celebrate, after UNCLE BOB got 21 points by beating MUNGO BURKE.  ALF 
MUSHPIE certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to JENNIMYS 
COLLIN and losing 8 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by NOBLE ASSASSIN, of ARDIVENT, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome 
ARDIVENT's Number 1.  Word has it one team in ARDIVENT is using psychics to predict 
wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of DEATHTONGUE 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of FANDILS, so did that sorry team shy from 
DEATHTONGUE Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and TANIA PARK is it right now.  
Most challenged warrior.  Isn't BLUVALLEY WARRIORS proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARDIVENT is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARDIVENT?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Oh, my!  Ouchy, ouchy, ouchy!  0-3!  And the best W/L goes back to the mighty
Technogeek.  (sigh) --     Fandil The Wise (looking for something positive to say,
but ...)

And congratulations to Binkly, a highly deserved Duelmaster. -- All The Fandils

Way to go, Sizzling Sunflower!  That vampire was no match for the Sun Gal.  Lady Fern
trains them well. -- WOF

No deaths or bloodfeuds in The Arena Of The Red Sands!  This is a truly blessed time.
-- Fandil The Wise

Bingo -- The only Agatha I know of had a wonderful way with words.  I have read all
her Hercule Poirots twice, and Miss Marple (Jane) is a close second. -- Lily
Catherine

Randell Scot -- I don't see any reason why you couldn't get lucky.  Just don't go
rolling snake eyes when you need a seven or eleven. -- Lily C

Hmmm.  I may not be fighting until after The Face.  Fandil The Wise says I am maxed.
Does that mean my clothes closet is full? -- Anna Beatrice

Binkly -- You were the better warrior and deserve the DM Title.  Salute. -- Anna B

Bingo Little -- You fought; I played bingo and drank cheap beer.  I lost.  Shucks. --
Brother Jerome

Jennemys -- I think your experience helped lots. -- Lily Catherine

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Good luck at The Face. -- Fandil The Wise

Wise Old Fandil -- Ah ha!  Parry, Riposte, ahha, ohho!  Once again, the top spot is
mine. -- Technogeek

Tania -- Ah, that felt really, really good. -- Betty

Mungo -- No, Mungo, bad, bad! -- Alf

Kung Fu Master -- A little out of your neighborhood, aren't you? -- Snorky

Randell Scot -- Rather unfortunate for you. -- Fran

Mungo -- Honey, if you were cute, you could have a liberty. -- Betty

Betty -- Ack.  You should go back to letting Bingo throw muffins at you.  Or you
could throw muffins at me, of course, which would be much less painful. -- Tania Park
P.S.  Although I admit that having Bingo call me "old bean" is really annoying, and
it probably annoys you, too, so... eh.

Alf Mushpie -- Oatmeal.  That's the answer. -- Mungo Burke

Lily Catherine -- Let me guess, the Handicapper hates you, yes? -- Jennimys Collin

Brother Jerome -- Oh, I say!  Sorry about that, old bean, didn't mean to hit you
quite so hard.  Man of God and all that, respect called for.  I just got a bit over
enthusiastic, what? -- Bingo Little

Fran Bran -- Eh.  Everyone tells me that bran is terrible healthful stuff.  Huh.  YOU
may be healthful, it certainly looks like it, but an encounter with bran does not
seem to be leaving ME in the pink of condition. -- Randell Scot

Someone's Uncle Bob -- It's an involuntary reaction.  Listen, if you KNEW my so-
called Uncle Bob, you wouldn't be surprised.  In fact, you'd probably line up--
there's a long line--to help me beat on him. -- Tania Park

Fran -- Certainly not! -- Randell Scot

Fandil -- Pressure of events prevents the production of an episode this week.  Maybe
I can write it while the Face to Face is happening. -- the Scribe
