                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Javelino, it was a pleasure to trap you in that boar pit!  I didn't think you'd
fall for it.  (snicker)  Or should I say, fall into it?
     Whole roasted pig tonight, and everybody's welcome!  Come on by.

                                     Deadfall

P.S.  Being the Duel2Dude is sooo neat!  I never thought I'd make it this high.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ROCANIS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  BLACKENED PRIDE 
had cause to celebrate, after CIRITH UNGOL got 17 points by beating NARROW FOAL.  In 
ROCANIS, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
JAVELINO.  Word has it one team in ROCANIS is taking speech lessons to try to bore 
their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Justice was served as CIRITH UNGOL fought NARROW FOAL in bloodfeud.  Well done, 
BLACKENED PRIDE!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  ROCANIS, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Grub & Rub Bar and 
Bistro.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Mountain Goat -- "Bows his head in token of surrender"?  Oh, SURE he does!  He bowed
his head the better to butt somebody, and if I hadn't known him all too well, there
would have been arenamaster flying all over the place. -- Jonathannie

Oooh, the Rirorni are getting so CUNNING!  The assassin they sent--I don't know who
he thought he'd kill that would MATTER--was, or at least could pass himself off as, a
Ratani.  Sneaky!  But not good enough with a knife. -- Applemint

It's high time we took matters in hand if the Rirorni are going to be sending out
assassins and killer golems.  Anybody here up for a jihad? -- Bitter Vetch
P.S.  That's a moderately serious question, in a story-writing sense.

Narrow Foal -- Ah, too narrow for either muscles or brains.  I like that in an
opponent! -- Candy Apple
P.S.  And you're a total slave to your sweet tooth, which I like even better.  (I
have a friend who's a dentist....)

of the Crimson Alliance and the Crimson Brotherhood (which was composed of former CA
members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
