                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Friends!  Foes!  Where are you?  Come back!  I feel looonely!

Zoum la Bouse

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for JASMIN, who pummelled LI 
KUI, to pocket 14 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, JASMIN was 
winsome, after beating LI KUI and seeing him lose 9 points.  Can you believe it?  
ZOUM LA BOUSE apparently has better things to do as THE GREENHOUSE's Duelmaster than 
show up and fight!  Now I can't insult RENDOR QUIL, as he has gloriously dueled to 
the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was 
the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's 
got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are THE GREENHOUSE's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in THE GREENHOUSE is the highlight of my life.  Keep 
those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Hum... what could I say?
Unlucky fiht, Sun Qian!
-- Le Pentarque

Our guildhouse is a MESS!  You'd think we'd been gone for centuries instead of just a
couple of years.  A certain amount of dust and cobwebs, okay, we expected that,
but....  It couldn't look worse if ghouls or something had been lairing here!
Really, we're going to have a major job cleaning it up.  So long as it isn't ghouls
or something, of course, then it's MORE than a major job.  We've been authorized to
say that if anyone wants to HELP us, Jorja will undertake to write some short
spotlights about it.  Maybe not every turn, because stuff just keeps coming UP, but
as often as she can.  Let us know. -- those of us who walk the Middle Way
