                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Frankly, the Wild-Eyed Fanatic is pathetic.  But what else is new?  Until an old
team comes back, or a new team gets someone into the upper rankings, I'm fated to
defend the title against standbys.  It's a dirty job, but somebody's got to do it.

                                      Samildar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
KIWI CONNECTION II can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays for TROUT, who 
pummelled KORASIM, to pocket 28 points.  ALLERDAE CHAN certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and losing 15 points in 
the process!  MADAM VENUSIA found out that TROCAR isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Word has it BRUNO suffered a romantic setback.  
Note how he challenged ALBERT, 26 points his senior.  ALBERT had a quite go of it, 
putting BRUNO in his place.  Willing to win at any cost is ALEX, who challenged 
JOKER, 13 points junior.  Our sympathies, JOKER!  I thought ALEX showed great skill 
and promise when he was bested by JOKER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  I hear BRUNO of WARRIORS tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a 
priest.  ALBERT of KIWI CONNECTION II saved him the effort of getting references.  A 
moment of silence for BRUNO, who died an untimely death at the hands of ALBERT.  In 
the spirit of revenge, we call upon WARRIORS to act!  Justice was served as JOKER 
fought ALEX in bloodfeud.  Well done, GOTHUM!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  TROCAR, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Swinging Aardvark.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir
