                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You do realize, I hope, that if you spell your name backward, it's Rins?  There
are grave implications in this, and you should deal with them quickly, lest they suck
you into an adventure or some equally ill-omened activity.  This is no jest, the risk
is acute!

                                    Skorindelle

P.S.  Look what's happened in Morya, after all!  A horrid example for us all.
Possession by the spirits of the dead, adventures in hell, who knows what may yet
come their way?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TROCAR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as AMERICAN PRAYER can 
attest...  RAPTORZ had cause to celebrate, after SPARROWZ got 19 points by beating 
ROBBY KRIEGER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, SPARROWZ was winsome, after 
beating ROBBY KRIEGER and seeing him lose 10 points.  Out with the old, in with the 
new.  Enter WILD-EYED FANATIC, handily defeating SKORINDELLE.  With 90 points, 
DARISTAM of TRADERS OF TROCAR takes the position of TROCAR's Duelmaster.  So who's 
the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a 
PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are TROCAR's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in TROCAR would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  TROCAR, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Do you suppose that the Shagornan Wild Man, called a "dwarf" despite his height
because of his hairiness, is actually an under-sized wild man?  Perhaps they're a
type of Shew. -- Daristam

Roxy -- Dear lady, how can this be?  I am, of course, delighted that you chose to
surrender to me in such a graceful fashion (or at all!), but I will admit to
surprise.  This is an honor and a pleasure unlooked-for. -- Vardin Abeq

Worq -- The situation becomes increasingly perplexing.  I eschew crude jokes about
you "worqing too hard and exhausting yourself" and ask how it is that you came to
lose this fight. -- Korasim

Ghost of Sparrowz -- I would not have wished you dead, at least not till I'd gotten a
chance to date you, but so it is.  This concludes what is for us a very strange turn.
5-0-1!  Astonishing. -- Samildar

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
