                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I stepped out on the sands, and M. Chardinee was there.  I'm not sure why we had
to actually go through the motions, when it was obvious from the start, from BEFORE
the start, that I was going to win that.  But the Commission is very conservative
about these things.

                                      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.  Practice pays for 
WHITE WIZARD, who pummelled JIMEMMA LOCA, to pocket 17 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 9 points to GILBERN 
JUSS.  (Discrete enough, WITCHY WOMAN?) Out with the old, in with the new.  Enter 
KUNG-FU MASTER, handily defeating GILFMET IVERS.  With 74 points, WHITE WIZARD of 
HILLTOP GURUS takes the position of VALAMANTIS' Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in 
VALAMANTIS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DISASTERS, alone and unchallenged.  As a woman 
of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of HILLTOP GURUS, so did that sorry team shy 
from DISASTERS  
     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!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
VALAMANTIS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Aradi 
Alyia.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Witchy Woman -- So that's what being a guru gets you?  Maybe I should experiment with
a little guru-ness.  Guru-ation?  Guru-osity?  What is the noun here for the
functioning of a guru, anyway? -- Gilbern Juss

Molgisse Redbeard, Exiled Concubine and Crossdresser -- You're an offense to all
females.  Unfortunately, you're also personally repulsive to a degree that makes you
difficult to fight. -- JimEmma Loca

Training Buddha -- If you like, I'll explain to your manager that you couldn't
possibly have won, once I located and spoked your training wheels. -- Imrom Llews

Oil Leak -- So true!  And we don't even USE oil, or transport it, or anything.  It's
still a disaster. -- Kern Morit
