                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sylvester wasn't able to overcome my unique parry bash style, but he was able to
teach me more than my last 4 opponents combined.  Unfortunately, none of what I
learned will help the commission recognize that it is time for me to move on.  30 FE
has come and gone.  That means until I learn the skills the commission wants, I'll be
here in Illis.  G W Bush, I do believe we're scheduled to fight this upcoming round.
Good luck and perhaps we can catch a drink after the fight!

-- I'm a Basher

                                      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 
BELITRIS, who pummelled JOHN WAYNE, to pocket 21 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, BELITRIS was winsome, after beating JOHN WAYNE and seeing him lose 
17 points.  I'M A BASHER successfully staved off a grab for the roses by G W BUSH of 
TALL TALES.  Does ILLIS have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  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!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  ILLIS, I leave you now.  
The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Dripping Blade.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir

King Midas -- Thanks so much!  My first time in the Challenger Champs.  I assume
you're training to eventually destroy all the open handed aimed blows higher up.
Clearly if they try and touch you, they'll be in trouble. -- I'm Powerless

Islanders -- The only luck I've ever had is to find a job under Assur, who takes on
more unemployed bashers than he perhaps should.  He then awarded me with a tourney
prize, though I might have been better off without work than to have to undergo the
resurrection process three times.  And number four almost seems a foregone conclusion
as Assur has told me I WILL fight in the Dark Arena one day.  My partner here in
Illis, he's the lucky one.  His unique style and seemingly impossible ability to
predict his opponent's moves on the sand have established him as the Duelmaster for
some time. -- I'm Powerless

I'm a Basher -- I did notice that. -- Sylvester

G W Bush -- Ah, you thought I would make a good "bird in the hand"?  As if!  I'll
peck your eyes out. -- Dillis Rhin

Uncle Fester -- Everyone in the family knows that my aunt is nuts.  Nothing else
would explain her marrying you. -- Belitris

Johnny Appleseed -- Not in the middle of the corn patch, you don't! -- Coco Nuttal

And the Osksi Noble, whose prowess is known to all. -- Chagua Korbin

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
