                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And my thanks to Lendo ten Chardin for being there for me today and for teaching
me a skill.  Always handy, skills.

                                  Killian ten Vir

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DAL SHANG.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  MIGHTY DUCKS had 
cause to celebrate, after DUCK KA-BOB got 17 points by beating ONE-EYED YOFAN.  
JOEVINA SARIL certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to SWEET 
ANELLA and losing 18 points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster 
were disappointed by HELVAN QUICKHAND, of DAL SHANG, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't 
overcome DAL SHANG's Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  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.  DAL SHANG, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Blazing Unicorn.  
'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Okay, so I was hard on Sweet Anella.  Female impersonators offend me. -- Joevina
Saril

And why, I wonder, did the Chardinee not teach ME a skill today?  I, too, could have
used another. -- Lorin ten Koro

Better Duck -- Why don't you take your own advice, man?  It isn't like I *want* to
hurt you.  Beat you, yes, but surely we can do this, well, not PAINLESSLY, but a
little more easily? -- Merro Dosh

Unlucky Duck -- And contagious, too. -- Ghost of Tylla Tyrn
