                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You didn't think you could WIN, did you, Xander?  You haven't gotten your
weapon fixed yet.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in JURINE, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--BLADE AND BLOOD.  
Practice pays for XANDER HAXAN, who pummelled ROEKFORT SIMS, to pocket 14 points.  
ROEKFORT SIMS certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to XANDER 
HAXAN and losing 13 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, of JURINE, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome 
JURINE's Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are JURINE's warriors?  Come, let us see.  If challenges were 
horses, PARLEN QUIR could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
The audience gave a nice round of rasberries to VERELLE WIST of MIDDLE WAY 16, for 
expiring in such an ungraceful fashion.  11-10-0, indeed!  Questions are being raised 
about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in JURINE 
would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Tillise Ulam -- Argh!  You again.  You're gonna make me do something desperate. --
Xander Haxan

Roekfort Sims -- I understand you now. -- Mikai Abados

Parlen Quir -- Mikai was right about that.  You don't know how to finish a fight.
Unless you were planning to lose? -- Sibi El Keer

Verelle Wist -- Don't like losing but those skills make up for it. -- Cirsium Vulgare

Another standby.  This will get me to the top real quick. -- Lady Thorne

Jorja -- A two team arena.  We're going to get to know each other real well. --
Noachian, Blade And Blood

Sibi el Keer -- Damned bloodthirsty... (mutter mutter, grumble, grouse, mutter)  Good
fight. -- Parlen Quir

Mikai Abados -- Actually, I suppose it wouldn't be Ahringol you went to if you died,
at least, not directly.  Kjarran's one of the Big Guy's lieutenants, isn't he? --
Roekfort Sims

Cirsium Vulgare -- Round-up. -- Verelle Wist

Noachian -- Our apologies, we'll have that fifth warrior on the sands today, I think.
He got shuffled to the side in the rush for the tourney. -- Jorja

Mikai Abados -- Yeah, well, I WANTED to win it, and THIS one, too, but I was the
Designated Loser to keep us from having an perfect turn. -- Parlen Quir, "it's a
dirty job, but somebody who's got to do it is me"
