                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Time to live up to my name and history.  I will go to the Dark Place for the
second time to catch back the string of my destiny.  When I entered the Greenhouse
for the first time, I was only a piece of monster meat..  Who would have thought I
would be a popular Duelmaster and a TV???  Not my manager, for sure...

Two

P.S.  I'm quite honored to leave after a last meeting with the delicious Tulip.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of THE GREENHOUSE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir 
to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at 
BLOOD AND GUTS! left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by 
THE ORDER.  Good show!  What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't 
ask)  Cause for celebration, according to FLOWER GIRLS.  Good things come to those 
who fight well, as THE ORDER can attest, moving up by 2.  Practice pays for HOT 
STUFF, who pummelled ZOUM LA BOUSE, to pocket 19 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 9 points to HOT STUFF.  
(Discrete enough, ZOUM LA BOUSE?) Duelmaster TWO from BLOOD AND GUTS! is going for 
the gold, as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's LAWRENCE OF ARABIA.  Ooh, the 
excitement!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by LAWRENCE OF 
ARABIA, of DARK ARENA, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome THE GREENHOUSE's Number 
1.  Word has it one team in THE GREENHOUSE is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in THE GREENHOUSE avoid DARQUE AGES.  The warriors of 
DARQUE AGES found their efforts at combat frustrated as PYROMANIA apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
GLOATING GARDENIA is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't FLOWER GIRLS 
proud!  Do my ears deceive me?  CAUSTIC CROCUS (outclassed by 32 points) challenged 
451 DEGREES, in what promises to be a fight.(!) Fixed fights?  Paybacks?  Blind luck? 
Whatever, CAUSTIC CROCUS challenged 451 DEGREES, CAUSTIC CROCUS the underdog by 32 
points.  ARRAHE found herself challenged by a warrior 22 below:  LADY MYSTIC.  LADY 
MYSTIC of JADE WARRIORS kept hers wits as she was subdued by ARRAHE.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Those who owe TWO of 
BLOOD AND GUTS! money and had written him off, take note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK 
ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must 
needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in THE GREENHOUSE is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  THE GREENHOUSE, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has 
agreed to foot my bill at The Victory Tavern.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
