                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Okay, this time a victory over the Veteran Mercenary.  He's a little old to be
fighting in the arena, and he doesn't teach worth spit.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  VAN DUEL?  Who?  DARK HORSEMEN is the top team 
these days, buddies!  Good things come to those who fight well, as AMAZON ELITE can 
attest, moving up by 1.  WILDCATS had cause to celebrate, after PANTHER got 20 points 
by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  TALL BULL certainly had a baffled expression on his 
face, after losing to MONTENEGRO and losing 14 points in the process!  KHALUHUMS 
DWARF found out that TRICORUS 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...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in TRICORUS avoid DARK HORSEMEN.  Like a pup with its 
tail between its legs, AMAZON ELITE scurried away from DARK HORSEMEN.  Oh, the shame! 
If challenges were horses, ZELMA could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRICORUS is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid TRICORUS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
