                             Notes from the arena champ.

Oh my, this chair is real hard!  Which of course makes sense as it looks to be made
out of a big rock.  Oh yes, ahh, All Hail Rocanis!  Most bestest vacation paradice in
all the land, 'cept in Summer.  *grin*  We, I.F., had a pretty solid turn 'cept Dan
got kilt, we were all shocked by this since old Ladro's brain case was fairly well
removed from everyting but the helm botled to his armour.  Amazin them night fights!
Best of luck to all, less it's vs the Inconsistent Fury, of course!

                       Ria Rosedancer

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ROCANIS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for BALZEC, who pummelled RIRORNI 
SPY, to pocket 10 points.  In ROCANIS, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we 
find ourselves a new Duelmaster, EBRIA GANNET.  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.  
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.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ROCANIS?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
