                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Not good enough to catch the commission's eye, I guess.  I'll have to try
harder.

Zensu Lasagna

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at MIDDLE WAY 16 left the arena dejected, after being kicked 
out of the top spot by SHEWISH BUFFET.  Good show!  FEAR FACTORY had cause to 
celebrate, after BONESNAP got 20 points by beating CHUCK ENDERN.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 14 points to SYBO.  
(Discrete enough, JENNI KORREG?) Now I can't insult FLAME SPIDER, as he has 
gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on 
too thick) 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!  Perhaps the warriors of SHEWISH BUFFET 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of 
SHEWISH BUFFET found their efforts at combat frustrated as LEGIONS OF HELL apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  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.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  JURINE, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Swinging Aardvark.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
