                             Notes from the arena champ.

     One more!  One more win, one more title, and one more to graduate and be out of
here.  I will be so happy, then.
     I am turning over a new leaf if I reach the Isle.  No more tricks!  I will find
me a mate and settle down to grow little pansies.
     I want to wish everyone good luck in the mailer.  (If you participate.)  I doubt
you will see any of us gals there.
               Petulant Pansy DMIII

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but OTTO'S PARTS will tell you 336-307-17 is nothing to laugh at...  THE 
CHOSEN ONES had cause to celebrate, after STRAHD got 16 points by beating GRAFFITI.  
GRAFFITI certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to STRAHD and 
losing 10 points in the process!  Well, Duelmaster PETULANT PANSY challenged MIDDLE 
WAY 8's SALINA REES.  Is a 16-3-0 good enough?  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster 
were disappointed by SALINA REES, of MIDDLE WAY 8, who despite a 19-35-1 couldn't 
overcome FRATSFA's Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     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...  The warriors of 
DRAGONS GUARD II found their efforts at combat frustrated as FLOWER GIRLS apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, WEI YAN could 
open up a fast food joint!  ARION challenged LEIA!  Who says THE CHOSEN ONES are just 
a bunch of wimps!  ARION of THE CHOSEN ONES kept his wits as he was overcame by LEIA. 
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Justice was 
served as HIDDEN fought WEI YAN in bloodfeud.  Well done, BASH BROS ROAD SIGN!  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!  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid FRATSFA farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Shiftyeyed Volunteer -- Wow!  Thanks for taking us both on.  Usually one gets
completely fulfilled (giggles) tussling with only one of us, but you had to handle
two.  What a man!  Thanks, too, for letting us both finish on top.  (What a feat!) --
Deadly Daisy and Searing Sunflower

Ellis Tate -- I got some moves, Hon.  (wink)  Next time you try to stay with me and
make it last.  (Tee Hee) -- Haughty Holly

Salina Rees -- I sorta feel bad.  I admit to taking advantage of a measley blood feud
and you to stay alive, win, and graduate out of here.  Forgive me? -- Petulant Pansy

Friendly Constable -- You are quite the friendly one, aren't you?  (Kisses his
cheek.)  There's more where that came from.  (Wiggling her hips.) -- Mad Marigold

Now THAT was a great turn, Gals.  I am proud of you. -- Lady Fern

Wei Yan -- You know those signs cost money, right?  Tearing it out of its place and
destroying it because you couldn't read it?  Not nice. -- Assur

Ursila Rilvar -- Still don't have enough to beat you, but thanks for the learns. --
Hidden

Sun Qian -- Nice fights! -- Graffiti

Dargon -- Now that's more like typical Dragon's Guard warrior from your stable that I
would expect. -- Fat Lip

Seti, Strahd, & Arion -- Good to meet you guys.  Would you have guessed that Runny
Nose is the smartest of us all? -- Runny Nose, Cracked Knuckle, & Massive Migraine

Lady Fern -- Ah, thanks for the explanation.  It must have been set up before I left
Lirith Kai.  But one thing to bear in mind, the ARENAS are dwindling, but the citys
are not, and lately the politics have been something to turn a person's hair white.
-- Jorja
P.S.  For that matter, I don't much like the idea of Lady Sheila, a very strange
person showing distinct signs of Imortality Psychosis, sending assassins round and
about.

One-two, buckle my shoe.  No time for personal personals because of events.  You
know, life and stuff like that.  Sorta sorry. -- Ursila Rilvar
