                             Notes from the arena champ.

Head 1:  Well, after 15 years trolling around the cosmos, I return to the throne that 
         I have held 6 times before.
Head 2:  You held?
Head 1:  Yes, I held.
Head 3:  More like you rode in on our coattails.
Head 1:  What's that supposed to mean?
Head 3:  What do you think?  We carried your sorry butt!
Head 1:  Oh never mind.  It's about time I...
Head 2:  We
Head 1:  Sorry, we.
Head 2:  Thank you.
Head 1:  Don't mention it.  Now what was I saying?
Head 3:  Time we...
Head 1:  Oh yeah.  It's about time we come back to help defend the castle or Mylar's 
         or whatever they are calling it now, before it sinks into the swamp.  See you 
         all out there soon. -- 3HK

                                      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.  The boys at MEN OF 
STEEL left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by KNIGHTS OF 
NI.  Good show!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at 
jokes, observe THEM.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 4!  Practice pays for PEACE 
AND, who pummelled ROO, to pocket 19 points.  A certain someone should cut down on 
the drinking and practice more, after losing 10 points to CHICKEN OF BRISTOL.  
(Discrete enough, BOSH?) Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
PANCAKES, of GET, who despite a 9-5-0 couldn't overcome ROCANIS' Number 1.  Word has 
it one team in ROCANIS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!  
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of SKULL SQUADRON, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of KNIGHTS OF NI, so did that sorry team 
shy from SKULL SQUADRON If challenges were horses, BOSH could open up a fast food 
joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an 
overtaxed simile, I now bid ROCANIS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
