                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Rirorni Spy.  An OLD Rirorni Spy.  His hair is gray.  He's got wrinkles.
Arthritis in his knees, swollen knuckles, the whole nine yards.  This is...
disappointing.  But at least he gave it his best shot.

                                      Forluitha

P.S.  Dhalgoi, you're too late.  I escape with my life intact.
P.P.S.  Good gods, EPEE with a deftness of 11?  Who are they trying to fool?

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in ROCANIS, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--STRAIGHT UP THUG.  STRAIGHT UP THUG had 
cause to celebrate, after LOIS THUG got 19 points by beating HAWTHORN.  HAWTHORN 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to LOIS THUG and losing 
14 points in the process!  FORLUITHA successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
ROCANI TURNCOAT of ROCANIS.  Does ROCANIS have no one talented enough to dethrone 
her?  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead 
trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are ROCANIS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in ROCANIS avoid BAD APPLES.  
The warriors of BAD APPLES found their efforts at combat frustrated as GET apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BUCK FEVER is the most 
challenged warrior.  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note the 
mismatched fight, LOVEABLE LARRY and BUCK FEVER.  Are STRAIGHT UP THUG unwilling to 
engage in a fair fight?  I thought LOVEABLE LARRY showed great skill and promise when 
he beat BUCK FEVER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     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.  ROCANIS, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Wanton Troll.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

I'll show you new tricks. -- Sourcrab

Juan Thug-a-Lot -- Good gods, how can you drink that stuff?  Paint remover would be
easier on the throat. -- Malus s'Prout
