                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That stupid Potato Bug!  How he could!  Much better to be Nacho Bug and eat
beefy nachos.

                                  Chiquita Chiwawa

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARADI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  RED DOG GANG had cause to celebrate, after SLIPPERS 
got 22 points by beating KHALHUMS DWARF.  In ARADI, nothing is permanent (except 
Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, POTATO BUG.  So who was the warrior 
seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARADI is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
ARADI?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Q Mark -- Eh?  What's that?  It doesn't smell unusual.  It isn't moving.  Probably
not important. -- Fenwrist

I really WANTED those boots.  The Ambitious Guard has the BEST boots.  Chewy and
richly flavored.  I really wanted them. -- Slippers

I don't think I like the Honest Merchant.  He tried to kick me. -- Kotter

What?  *I* didn't take the Ambitious Guard's boots, so why is he coming after ME with
a rolled-up newspaper? -- Diggity Dog

A Kung-Fu Master.  Big deal. -- Chilman Else

Hoffa?  I laugh. -- Elin Gissors

I never expected an HONEST merchant. -- Balko Dunn
