                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You know, Jhelum denies any relationship with these so-called Jhelum Raiders.
Wisely, I think, because they seem to be stupid, violent, and greedy.

                                    Vardin Abeq

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  TRADERS OF TROCAR had cause to celebrate, after EMNAR GORIN got 11 
points by beating SLAVE-WARRIOR.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 16 points to LAKE PATROL.  (Discrete enough, 
SAMILDAR?) Out with the old, in with the new.  Enter GURTARGAN MONK, handily 
defeating VARDIN ABEQ.  With 68 points, KORASIM of TRADERS OF TROCAR takes the 
position of TROCAR's Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     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!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for TROCAR?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Zakariya -- Were you the one who climbed the tree?  Just wondering, because we're a
little short on trees in the arena. -- Emnar Gorin
P.S.  Not that they wouldn't make a pleasant landscape variation.  But nobody listens
to me.

Well, heck.  I criticize the Wild-Eyed Fanatic and next time around I get hit by a
Gurtargan Monk.  Hit more than once, too!  These darned martial arts monks. --
Samildar

Clearly, this Ambitious Guard has a problem.  He should probably turn his ambitions
to raising chickens or something. -- Korasim

Mateen -- Ah, left-handed!  I knew you were sinister the moment I saw you, and this
PROVES it. -- Allerdae Chan

We salute our few but dedicated tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Traders of
Trocar
