                             Notes from the arena champ.

     There's worse smells than barns, Horse.  The Veteran Mercenary smells like old
sweat socks.

                                    Vinda Yarro

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JURINE, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  The boys at STAR WARS left the arena dejected, after 
being kicked out of the top spot by MIDDLE WAY 16.  Good show!  HOUSE GREYJOY had 
cause to celebrate, after ERON got 16 points by beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR.  Win some, 
lose some.  Speaking of which, REWARD was winsome, after beating R2-D2 and seeing him 
lose 8 points.  Out with the old, in with the new.  Enter KUNG-FU MASTER, handily 
defeating VINDA YARRO.  With 94 points, DEEMER EPPT of MIDDLE WAY 16 takes the 
position of JURINE's Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in JURINE is taking speech 
lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JURINE is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  JURINE, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has 
agreed to foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
