                             Notes from the arena champ.

     War flail?  WAR FLAIL?  That's RIDICULOUS!
     And the Commission STILL didn't properly recognize my dominance of the front
page.  I'm GLAD I'm leaving.

                                  Harbert Kreigh

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  GARBAGE PAIL KIDS?  Who?  MIDDLE WAY 10 is the 
top team these days, buddies!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you 
didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to MAGIC KINGDOM.  MAGIC INGREDIENTS 
had cause to celebrate, after CLOWN CONFETTI got 15 points by beating CM - HERMES.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 9 
points to CM - ACHILLES.  (Discrete enough, LON OLBERT?) Now I can't insult CARELESS 
BEAR, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me 
if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in VALAMANTIS is taking speech lessons 
to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in VALAMANTIS avoid GARBAGE PAIL KIDS.  As a woman of 
good breeding scorns the "warriors" of CM - SCORPIO, so did that sorry team shy from 
GARBAGE PAIL KIDS If challenges were horses, KIM NEUW could open up a fast food 
joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     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

CM - Achilles -- You didn't have to fall down the stairs.  There are elevators and
escalators for people with bad heels. -- Subway

     But they aren't as exciting as falling down the stairs.

Three-two-one.  Sounds so mathematical or something, doesn't it?  A countdown.  To
what, we don't know.  Jorja having a hissy fit at us?  She isn't going to be happy
when she noticed that Kim killed Nellie.  Not the kind of thing we're supposed to do.
-- those who walk the Middle Way, rather nervously

Ghost of Nervous Nellie -- It wasn't my intention to kill you, but... what a fight!
We spent a minute swapping parries, you whack me a couple of times in the next
minute, we parry again in the third, we swap wounds in the fourth with you rated as
"ahead" at the end of it, and then a lucky blow from me, the statutory bloodlust
kicks in, and you're dead.  Weird and unsettling.  I shall pour a libation to your
shade. -- Kim Neuw
