                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Furious Terror....  I used to feel that when my first cousin once removed
drove.  Now I don't ride with him.  It's a lot less disturbing.

                                     Bouncing Bea

P.S.  It wouldn't be so bad, maybe, if he wasn't worried about wearing out his
brakes.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  TOM-TOM TORA certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after 
losing to FRELSY and losing 6 points in the process!  Now I can't insult SPEEDWAY, as 
he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay 
it on too thick) So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are AMEN-TEI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of WAYFARERS, alone and 
unchallenged.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of SUPERIOR FORCES 
5405, so did that sorry team shy from WAYFARERS Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and FURIOUS TERROR is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't CAR AND 
DRIVER proud!  FURIOUS TERROR found himself challenged by a warrior 21 below:  
DERWEAR.  DERWEAR of UN kept his wits as he bested FURIOUS TERROR.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  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!  Do 
not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Frelsy -- Yes, well, naturally I lost.  You're the superior force, after all. --
Roadblock
P.S.  But crashing through like that will do more than damage your lanterns.  You'll
get a ticket.
P.P.S.  To the next Policeman's Ball, I think.

No Way! -- Quite so. -- Avalanch Lily

     I really wish you'd find your missing "e".... -- Ed.

Furtive Returns II -- I suppose you're some kind of weird experiment? -- Tom-Tom Tora

26 May 2006
     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
