                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, of course!  I'm an orc. Devastating the Khalhums Dwarf is a racial
imperative.  I could do no otherwise.  Even though the Commission says he's an elf.
I devastate elves, too.

                                   Elin Gissors

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as BUBBA'S LEGION can attest...  Practice pays 
for FENWRIST, who pummelled FALKYNOR, to pocket 39 points.  HOFFA certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to KOTTER and losing 20 points in the 
process!  Now I can't insult Q MARK, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh 
great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in 
ARADI is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  If challenges were horses, 99% STUPID 
could open up a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Death (in the 
form of FENWRIST of RED DOG GANG) knocked on FALKYNOR's door.  What will THE 
WILLBURYS 13 do?  The suspense is killing me.  He who lives by the sword (or maul)... 
Witness FALKYNOR of THE WILLBURYS 13, felled by FENWRIST of RED DOG GANG.  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.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARADI?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

We salute the tourney participants. -- Spot and the Red Dog Gang

Q Mark -- Still the strange-tasting shoes.  I don't like it. -- Slippers
P.S.  Especially when you KICK me with them.

Gosh, was that a gladiator?  I thought it was an animated leather chewy toy. --
Fenwrist

The Happy Pheasant was pretty good.  He offered to throw a stick for me all
afternoon.  He probably doesn't mean it, humans have no attention span to speak of,
but it's a good thought. -- Kotter

That Jaywalker kicked me!  Ruthlessly! -- Diggity Dog

Xombie Hero -- Xombies have heroes?  Why aren't their heroes DOGS?  We're the best.
-- Big Dog

If Elin gets to write a column, I get to do a personal.  Not that the Visiting Orc,
who isn't an orc, is much to talk about.  I killed him for being a wimpy impostor. --
