                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Incredible is the word.  I wouldn't have bet a nickel on myself... I was not
even a Challenger?!
     Zoum was supposed to take the throne with his not very gracious challenge of 451
Degrees, but how did I pull this fight against our beloved Crocus?  Too much sun
during this dry spring?
     Let's celebrate anyway!!

Areopolite

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon THE 
GREENHOUSE, for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  EPYC DEATH had cause to celebrate, 
after ARRAHE got 29 points by beating VENGEFUL JUSTICE.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, LIGHTER FLUID was winsome, after beating JAZMINA and seeing him 
lose 10 points.  Now I can't insult ONYX, as it has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh 
great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in 
THE GREENHOUSE 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 DRAGONS GUARD 
II should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of 
good breeding scorns the "warriors" of PYROMANIA, so did that sorry team shy from 
DRAGONS GUARD II Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, LI KUI is the most challenged warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Those who owe JENNINGS of DRAGONS GUARD II money and had written it off, take 
note:  it'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND it'S MAD!!!  Death (in the form of 
ARRAHE of EPYC DEATH) knocked on VENGEFUL JUSTICE's door.  What will JADE WARRIORS 
do?  The suspense is killing me.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will 
pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
