                             Notes from the arena champ.

Okay, Galbei, enough of your wisecracks on the Shroud, I'm taking my title back!  And
that's what I like to see:  lots and lots of B.C. in the Top Honors section.  Last
time this column was mine, we were celebrating our first duelmastership.  This time,
we got a perfect 5 awards and a free turn (I think)!  Drinks are on us and blood is
on the sands.... -- The Black Clansman

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  DARK HORSEMEN had cause to celebrate, after MARSKOL got 20 points by 
beating DARK RIVER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, MARSKOL was winsome, 
after beating DARK RIVER and seeing her lose 14 points.  BLACK CLANSMAN successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by AILLENDEI of DARK HORSEMEN.  Does TRICORUS have no 
one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in TRICORUS 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?  Perhaps the warriors of AMAZON ELITE should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of AMAZON ELITE 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as BLACK CONVENTICLE apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in TRICORUS would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  I shall 
return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Aillendei -- CAT FIGHT!  CAT FIGHT!  Wait, if that was a cat fight, why did I
keep calling you a "mere dog?" -- Dark River

Persistent Beggar -- Maybe we should call you "Persistent Loser?" -- The Jonah

Venomous Concubine -- Perhaps a little more venom and a little less concubining
and you could've taken me? -- Dark Sweet Treat

Aillendei -- Next time, don't bite off more than you can chew (like the end of my
sword) and your teeth won't get stuck. -- Dark Sweet Treat
P.S.  Remember to brush AND floss!

Kurbald -- Keep your dark storylines (and kurBALD hairlines) to yourself!  I'm
more of an Aillendei kind of girl! -- Dark River

Black Clansman -- Splendid!  I gladly hand over the title, the skills, and the
win, in return for my invitation to retire while still alive.  This is going to
be a great life. -- Galbei
P.S.  Details available on request.

Dark River -- Ooooh, watch OUT for those "secret admirers"!  I have heard some
AWFUL tales. -- Aillendei
P.S.  Sure, probably some are "urban legends," but not ALL of them, I bet.

Endless Watch -- Tsk, that is no job for a woman!  If you need a little help
staying awake, be sure to call on me. -- Marskol

Dracul Tepes -- I suppose you KNOW that your name is a mirror image to that of
Sepet Lucard?  No telling what kind of trouble that'll get you into. -- Kurbald

Shroud of Gloom -- Do you think you could get away with a tie pin having star
sapphires on it? -- Aillendei
