                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Death Wish?  Not something *I* want.  I'm going to stick with a Life Wish. 
Although I'm a little surprised at how the match went.  Where did I learn "deadly
timed power"?  And I actually drove my opponent toward the arena wall with the energy
of my attack!  That's cool.  Must be the new breakfast cereal I've started eating.

                                    Erfin Goram

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of VALAMANTIS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at BLOOD 
KNIGHTS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by RANDOM 
SITH.  Good show!  LEGION OF LEGEND after a sorry 0-2-0 might want to consider 
abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  I doubt 
many are quaking in their boots, but MXC comes out of nowhere to get 4-1-0.  What 
does the future hold?  Watch this space...  MXC had cause to celebrate, after VIC 
ROMANO got 20 points by beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE.  A certain someone should cut down 
on the drinking and practice more, after losing 1 points to DARTH SIDIUS.  (Discrete 
enough, DONETTA FALDOUR?) ERFIN GORAM successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
BLUE of COLORS.  Does VALAMANTIS have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word 
has it one team in VALAMANTIS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent 
to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are VALAMANTIS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Perhaps the 
warriors of BLOOD KNIGHTS should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided 
team...  The warriors of BLOOD KNIGHTS found their efforts at combat frustrated as 
COLORS apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were 
horses, ORANGE could open up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A 
certain tavern in VALAMANTIS would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in VALAMANTIS 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 
VALAMANTIS?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Sir Paul -- I give you a bloody star for nerve, but with the advantages of style and
experience, what else could I do but win?  Well, okay, I could have lost
ignominiously, but I didn't feel like doing that today.  Other times, who knows. --
Donetta Faldour

Sir Rick -- Were you hoping to embroil us in a bloodfeud?  Tired of your life?  Both
are against my religion.  Not that I won't kill, you understand, but why should I
kill you?  We've never met before now, and I prefer to kill people I know well. --
Gabrella Imbro

Sir Kevin -- Naturally I couldn't defeat a Lord Protector!  Who would think it? --
Bali Darras

Cub -- What a misleading name!  You aren't cute and cuddly in the least.  You're
mean, nasty, vicious, and a killer, and I'm glad I escaped with my life. -- Gormoduc

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.

If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
