                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A good try, Gisborne, bet you didn't think you'd be in a title match!  But I
expect to face Rave next time, and less happily.  Of course, if I *lose*, I won't
have to think of "a few words from the top."  It might be worth it for that.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ILLIS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for LA 
JOLLA, who pummelled DOOMIE JUGGERNAUT, to pocket 13 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 7 points to 
STINGAREE.  (Discrete enough, BANANA?) KIRRALA successfully staved off a grab for the 
roses by RAVE of ALL-STAR NANA'S.  Does ILLIS have no one talented enough to dethrone 
her?  Word has it one team in ILLIS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their 
opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ILLIS is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
